Last night I attended the annual kykNET Fiestas – a glamour filled evening with celebrities, great performances and the reason why we attended this prestigious occasion; to celebrate and acknowledge the actors, actress, performers and visual art artists who made Afrikaans theatre what it is today!
It’s a evening where you can dress to your heart’s desire – flowy dress, full face make-up, high heals… mirrored ball war hats – yes; you read correctly! Let’s just say some of the attendees won’t be going on Skattie wat dra jy‘s best dressed list!
Overall it was a fantastically fun evening which ended on quite the…LATE…note but nontheless; everybody had a blast!
