The folks at Ponds threw quite the party the day to celebrate the launch of their Gold Radiance range. I hadn’t experienced the brand before (nope, not even the BB cream!), so I was quite keen to what this would be about.
Gold Radiance sees Ponds launching into the anti aging category with their already ever popular formulas for African skin tones. The invite said to dress in “black & white with a touch of gold” so I knew it was going to be fancy, but couldn’t have imagined what was in store…
Our MC, Jo-Anne Strauss with the man himself – David Tlale
In keeping with the theme of all things gold & luxury, Ponds commissioned David Tlale to craft a collection of 5 gowns for the evening (each representing one of the Gold Radiance products) & deliver he did. I could literally hear gasps as each model came out onto the floor draped in a gold cape, took to the stage and tossed the cape aside to reveal a dress each more magnificent than the last…
the lovely Pearl Thusi…
PS side note: white orchids are my favourite, favourite flowers by a mile (if you don’t believe me, check out my wedding pics) and I’ve seen them done in every possible way but these individual stems hanging from the ceiling in clear, delicate test-tube like vases made me want to steal the décor! Love, love, love!
The “Beyoncé dress” as Jo-Ann Strauss put it…
Would. You. Look. At. That. Back!
glam, glam, glam!
Ok so back the products. The line up looks like this:

The day cream has a SPF of 15 and will cover you against UVA and UVB rays which for me, is a must. All of the products contain “real gold micro-particles”. Hmmm, keep you posted…
