A day at the J&B Met

The 36th annual J&B Met

This year’s J&B Met was soaring with fashionable designer outfits and personalities to match. It was such an amazing day and the glorious Cape summer did not disappoint!

J&B Met and designer fashion at 2nd Take Cape Town

The 2nd Take team were fortunate enough to attend the J&B Met on the 2nd of February. We went there, to see how people interpreted the theme and our fashion savvy staff, had fun watching and speaking to the J&B Met goers.

The J&B Met theme was “Made to Fly”

With the theme “Made to Fly”, there were the ubiquitous fairy and angel wings, however, many chose to interpret the theme a little more uniquely. From Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, to a beautiful Swan Princess, there was no ceiling on the imaginations of Cape Town’s best and brightest, all competing for the coveted title of the J&B “Most Elegant Couple Competition”.

The fashion and feel of the J&B Met this year was relaxed with a touch of glamour. There were a plethora of designer peplum tops, which enhanced the feminine shape that is so appealing this summer season. And there is nothing more cooling than an iced-mint green half-long/half-short dress or skirt! Lace, once again, was a winner in the fashion stakes, and the gents looked suave and dashing in designer top hats, ties and waistcoats. Hats, hats and more hats! We wonder if any of these designer items were second hand. Well it’s not a horse-race without some interesting, fashionable or just plain arty hats-and this year was no exception.

The J&B Met this year was the place to be this summer, whether it was to place bets on one of the 16 thorough-breds competing for the R2.5 million first prize, or to simply flit in the breeze between restaurants and the Lifestyle Village, admiring designer trends, sunshine and company.

Here are some fabulous photographs we took at the J&B Met. Check these pictures on Facebook page.
