at the @YouMagazine Awards 2012

Last week You Magazine hosted their prestigious You Spectacular Awards at the Monte Casino Teatro. For the past few years, they were always held in the east rand, but now they were held, theatre style at the Teatro in Fourways. As awesome as that may sound, it also meant there would be no dinner and the after party would take place in the foyer. Hardly a glamorous after party, however it was kinda fun… Thank gosh for the 5FM DJ’s who provided a banging soundtrack and kept us dancing all evening…
Now to be honest with you, when I was sitting in the car park, I almost decided to turn around and go home… People were so over dressed. In ball gowns to the Teatro… Did they not get the memo that it is no longer in the east rand. People were dolled up to the nines, looking like they were off to a debutons ball…

There were a few highlights to the evening in addition to the awesome DJ’s at the after party. One was the awesome opening by Jeannie D and the other was the kick ass performance by South African legend, Tamara Dey… I almost died when she sang “AKA is a beast he’s a problem…” She killed it, but will tell you about that later…

I decided to keep it casual and wore a neck piece as a tie… I have seen Bonang and the other trendy girls do it, so I decided to give it a bash…

Jeannie D emcee’d the awards and she walked away with two awards for sexiest female and most popular female celeb… The crowd wasnt too impressed that she beat Bonang and Shashi Naidoo, but I guess they didnt vote. All the winners are chosen by the You Magazine readers. And the You Magazine readers must LOVE Jeannie D… (I mean she has been on the cover three times… And Bonang? Hoe many You Magazine covers has she been on?)

All Jeannie D was worried about was her mistake she made in her dance routine. Luckily she filmed it and was going around showing people she can actually dance… Shame, perhaps she was hoping the Strictly Come Dancing producers were around…

Roxy Burger looked like a sexy mime artist… Loved the black and white look… Cute…

Tamara Dey made my night or even my month… She performed tracks from all the nominees for the best muso of the year… A mix of The Parlotones, AKA, Zahara, Graeme Watkins and Jack Parrow. It was the sickest performance I have ever seen. She killed it…

I am a proud Tamara Dey fan and so is Melinda Bam (Miss South Africa)

Melinda Bam looked stunning in a glitzy gold dress… I think she is one of the hottest Miss SA’s we have ever had…

I asked her why she doesnt wear her sash and she replied, if by July people don’t know who she is, then she has done a bad job at being Miss South Africa… I love the confidence… Apparently she will be entering Miss Universe and will be representing South Africa. I have a funny feeling she could win it…

There were a few beauty queens at the awards… Here I am with Miss You Magazine…

AKA looked good in an animal print jacket… Well done to him for being nominated… (Sure he is the first hip hop artist to be nominated)

I have no idea what Minnie Dlamini was wearing… For a moment, I thought the Lion King was returning to the Teatro…

However her shoes were hot… She made sure I take a picture of them… (How Uyanda Mbuli of her….)

Another WTF moment was Bianca. Looking like Maryln Monroe of Eldo’s… When I gave her a hug, some of her stick of diamante’s stuck onto my jacket… Ya ne… Someone bought a bedazzler…

Bonang looked gorgeous as usual… Kinda sucked that she didnt walk away with any awards. But like I said, people have to vote for their winner and I guess team Bonang didnt push as hard as the Jeannie D camp…

Shashi Naidoo was nominated for sexiest female celeb and lost to Jeannie D… Poor Shash…

Jay Anstey wore a Gert Johan creation…

That just covered her essentials… Apparently she was naked under the dress…

5FM’s Nicole Da Silva (who is now also a mix DJ) Looked sexy in a tribal print lil number and a pink jacket…

Phuti Khomo looked like the little mermaid…


Zahara arrived with Lungelo… Must have come from an office party?

Ty Keogh arrived with his mother. He walked away with sexiest male celeb. And if you look into his eyes, you can see why he won sexiest male celeb. Apparently he took his mother bujee jumping on the Sunday after the awards…. How cool…

DJ C-Live, who provided a kick ass soundtrack, with his date. Blue nails to match C-Lives Panjabi…

Deep Fried Man announced the winner of best Comic and accepted the award on Trevor Noah’s behalf. Very Funny…

Gugu Zulu and his wife were nominated for best couple. Sadly they lost…

Kuli Roberts announced the winners of Best Couple… She was so proud of her R200 dress… Wore it with pride and without the tag still attached for an early morning return…

Can someone please tell me what does this Jolene girl do? She looked lovely in her pink dress by JJ Schoeman, but I still have no idea who and what she does…

Popular designer JJ Schoeman dressed a few of the ladies. Including fellow blogger Mandi.

Three of the Top Billing contestants… (Funny, I like these three) I didnt know the girl with the afro is an opera singer… Wow…

I think Joelle Kayembe is the most stunning girl around… She is sexy and classy and just plain hot… If I werent so gay…lol…. Here she is with Valentine of Trace TV.

Cara Burger, who is also a well known model was also there…. I think she is also so sexy…

While we talking about pretty girls, Boity and Melinda Bam dazzled…

Louise Carver also looked sexy. She arrived with this man… Who is he?

One of the coolest SA celeb couple I know, were also in the house… When is he popping the question Renate…

Aggie (I think) from 7de Laan was also there…

Muso, Graeme Watkins was also a presenter and was nominated… Well done…

Another Idols contestant, Lloyd Cele looked dashing in his navy/black suit..

Moshidi Motshegwa walked away with the award for best female actress… Well done to her… (She is an amazing actress, glad she was recognised.)

There were also small people at the awards, like model turned PR agent, Aldecia who arrived with her equally as small friend who is an actress on some soapie…

And Pixie wore another sexy neck piece. I think I need to go shopping with her… Apparently she is dropping her solo CD in a few months time… Looking forward to hearing it…
