THE second annual Lusaka July event was held last weekend at Lusaka’s Polo Club, attracting what others consider to be the best of both the Zambian and continental showbiz at an event that in the end seemed more of a boob and thigh contest.
With this year’s theme being ‘African luxury’, attendees came dressed to impress in exquisite, glamorous outfits.
The event was hosted by local radio presenter and hip-hop artist Cleo Ice Queen and had South African actress, television and fashion icon Boito Thulo.
Boito was a special guest to the function that saw Lusaka socialite Iris Kaingu, as many know she can never miss such an outing, stealing the limelight with her highly revealing gorgeous outfit, BUT without her rock on the finger (after so much hype about her ‘engagement’).
Iris, rumoured to have been hitched a few weeks ago, left people wondering if the announcement would see her walk down the isle.
Most of the people that made it on the red carpet nailed it, but it was Zambian hip-hop morgue Macky 2, who has been the topic on social media.
Most feel his outfit did not match up to his fame and blamed his wife, Hatinga, for letting him out dressed like that.
Others that attended the show were 2013 Big Brother Africa winner Dillish Mathews from Namibia.
The Lusaka July was introduced last year by PR Girl Media as a deliberate spin-off from the South African horse-racing event, the Durban July.
The event combines fashion with the sport of Polo and attendees are treated to a luxurious experience.
