A balmy summer's day at Paarl’s picturesque Val de Vie Estate set the scene for one of South Africa’s prestigious polo events, the Pink Polo.

The who’s who on the social and fashion scene came out in their finest pink theme inspired polo wear to raise awareness of breast cancer. 

This year organizers encourage guests to adhere to an authentic polo dress code which they described as “barefoot luxury”. This in the hope that guests, especially celebs, who have attended the event in red carpet ready gowns.

Most celebrities left their ball gowns at home and stuck to this year’s style guide, and still managed to look fabulous.
