This year's SA Style Awards, founded and co-ordinated by publicist Jillian Grogor,celebrated the winners of the past 19 years with as many style icons.

The event is dedicated to finding and celebrating South Africa’s trendsetters, who create a benchmark for excellence in their specific career paths.

During the weeks leading up to the event, the judges (Cheek2Chic was one of them) had their work cut out for them finding three new names for the category :"The Next Best Thing" and came up with some great new people in amongst the golden oldies. Fortunately they were treated to several media lunches which helped the little grey cells.

Dr Anuska Reddy also gave the judges and winners her wonderful oxygen treatments, used on the red carpet by glowing Hollywood celebrities. Mobile nail bar Fox Box also pampered the ladies with wonderful manicures.

During the week leading up to the SA Style Awards, sponsor Giorgio Armani had a spectacular installation in the Hyde Park Corner centre court, where their team demonstrated the art of couture gift wrapping.

French Beauty brand Lancôme is celebrating their 80th anniversary. The iconic label has created some equally iconic products over the years and these special gems were on display throughout Hyde Park Corner, offering some special inspiration, whilst Christmas shopping.

This  town went into a red carpet frenzy before the awards, finding that special outfit for the dazzling red carpet event and champagne reception in Hyde Park Corner.

On arrival guests walked down a 70 metre Blue Carpet, where they got their ‘glow’ with Intraceutical glow mist and Fox Box treated  guests to innovative signature nail art before proceeding to the ‘Oscar style’ pre-awards media pods, curated by Grey Goose.

After the awards there were photo opportunities and glasses of very special GH&Ahrens bubbles, followed by a floating dinner party at the Southern Sun Hyde Park Sandton on the lifestyle level overlooking Johannesburg, with breathtaking views.

The food is always outstanding and the Tsogo Sun chefs whipped up tantalising pasta, tacos, veal in marsala and sushi which went down well with Ashbourne & Southern Right Wines, Grey Goose cocktails, GM & Ahrens champagne and San Pellegrino & Aqua Panna waters.
