Namibian trio slay once again at the Sun Met

01 February 2019 | Art and Entertainment

Celebrities turned out in their numbers for the 157th annual Sun Met that took place last weekend.

The theme for the extravagant event, held at the Kenilworth racecourse, was precious metals. Usain Bolt returned this year after making headlines last year when he arrived in a helicopter.

Namibian firecrackers and fashion lovers Reinhard Mahalie, Jay Aeron and Rumano Fabrish were amongst the attendees of the prestigious event. Attending the Sun Met for the second year, the three slayers say they look forward to the day Namibia hosts a similar event.

“It's a horseracing event but it gets overpowered by fashion and everybody rocks up in garments that turn heads. It's basically going to play poker, showing up in style and in slay. It would be amazing to have something like this here but most of the Namibian clan are not risk takers within the fashion sphere,” said Aeron.

The theme was precious metals and although some celebrities were dressed accordingly, many others seemed to be out of place. This year, the trio where draped in House of Cyndie purple garments. South African media personality Minnie Dlamini-Jones turned heads in a dress by Gert-Johan Coetzee, while former Miss South Africa and Miss World Rolene Strauss wore a gold dress. Other celebrities who attended the event included Boity Thulo, Mafikizolo and Tamaryn Green.
