This year's July might have been a lot quieter then it usually is but there were some notable stars like Boity Thulo and Cassper Nyovest.
Boity, who specifically wanted to be dressed by an African designer, said that she told Orapeleng Modutle that she wanted to look sexy, classy but most importantly be comfortable. “I wanted to look like a star so I wanted a rich colour because Africa is full of richness. I also didn’t want something too obvious. I am one of the very few people wearing purple so that great,” she said.
When asked if others got the theme right, Boity said that it was open to personal interpretation and that a lot of people went for African print. “I think people wanted to celebrate Africa which is why there is a lot of African print but I also think that it just means what you would look like if you were a star”, she added.
Speaking on her experience at this years July, she said: “It’s been a ton of fun”. The Moet ambassador said that it’s always a different experience every year. “I have been coming to the July for the last 10 years and most of the time the experience you have is dependent on the marquee you are in. For me, Chaise Lounge is always such a brilliant experience. You are well taken care of and it’s comfortable, not cramped and it really solidified your experience”.
At the time of speaking to Boity, the star admitted to betting R50 on Do It Again but was not aware that it had won the main race. “Do It Again did it again? That’s so great! I won and I am very happy”.
