When you hear "Sun Met" you immediately think: fashion and horses. 

With just a week to go fashionstas and punters are looking forward to an exciting day filled with a colourful display of outrageous outfits, celebrity spotting and the horse racing of course. 

For some the event is ALL about the fashion with the races a mere side thought. 

On Friday morning beauty, fashion and all things equestrian came together on Muizenberg beach in Cape Town where the media had the opportunity to experience both sides of this prestigious event.

Regardless of the fact that the horses are not show-horses, they still managed to remain calm just long enough for us to get the perfect shots.

The two South African beauties seemed just as calm as they continued to gracefully work their magic with the playful stallions beside them.

The designer who is now based in Cape Town and well known for his urban active wear and exciting bold prints, showed a feminine side through the outfits he designed for the girls. While his love for bold prints remaining a distinct feature. 

This will be Chuma's first Sun Met experience. 

The excited Miss SA finalist is looking forward to the fashion, the horses (hoping to learn a thing or two about the racers) and just having fun with amazing people.

She remained tight-lipped when asked about her Sun Met outfit and who the designer is. 

"Don't be scared to go for bold prints and bold colours" is her advice when it comes to inspiration for this year's "African Luxury: Visionaries" theme.
