On 1 October 2016, GLAMOUR held our annual Women of the Year event in association with Valpré and Neutrogena (proud partners Roses, Hyde Park Southern Sun and Aldo) at the beautiful Hyde Park Shopping Centre, where we celebrated and awarded our phenomenal winners.
On arrival, winners, readers and celebrities sipped on delicious welcome cocktails from Cruz Vodka while admiring the incredible display of flowers and water courtesy of Valpré. Guests could also visit the Aldo ‘Cinderella stand’, where they tried on shoes and stood a chance to win one of four pairs of stunning heels.
We then made our way into the exquisite Southern Sun dining area where we enjoyed a scrumptious three-course lunch paired with MCCs from Pongracz and red wines from Fleur du Cap. The event was hosted by local star and Neutrogena brand ambassadress, Nomzamo Mbatha and brilliant entertainment was provided by South African personality, Taryn Louch.
Each of our fabulous winners took home truly GLAMOURous gifts from Neutrogena, Rimmel, Yardley, ghd, Lux, Aldo, Daniel Klein, Valpré, Roses, Twining Tea, Carlton Hair, Real Technique, Impress Nails, Vogue Eyewear, White Glo and Californian tan, as well as a special trophy. Guests received gift bags containing treats from Neutrogena, Rimmel, Lux, Aldo, Valpré, Roses, Twining Tea, ghd, Impress Nails and White Glo.
