Wednesday just before midnight we (my husband and I) arrived at the President Protea Hotel which was to become our ‘home’ for 2 nights.
Upon arrival we found these lovely chocolates in our room:
Thursday morning all the nominees had a chance to practise their speech…just in case; and each one received a beautiful etching done by Diane Victor:
Afterwards we were treated to a lovely breakfast:
Eventually it was time to get ready for the evening:
I made a rubber bow-tie for my husband…that is how far he will go when it comes to dressing up 😉 and I decided to wear the “Marie-Antoinette” wig with face paint and my rubber dress. Apparently Marie-Antoinette is famous for the line: “Let them eat cake”…..but in this case: “Let them eat rubber”!
As it turns out I wasn’t the only one that likes dressing up!:
These lovely people greeted the guests arriving on the blue carpet at the Artscape Theatre. Inside we were greeted by a lady with a table as a dress, serving us some sparkling wine!
And the winners are…………………….
Congratulations to artist Gerhard Marx for winning in the “Best visual art” category.
Then there was the after-party!
