Vodacom Durban July: Paledi Segapo

Durban – Whatever the occasion or ensemble, menswear designer Paledi Segapo firmly sticks to his fashion belief that “you should always be adorned in clothes that are in synch with your personality. Trying way too hard to emulate someone else’s fashion DNA can almost be like fashion suicide.”

The designer, entrepreneur, owner, and fashion columnist is enjoying his spot as one of this year’s eight Vodacom Durban July Invited Designers.

“Horseracing events are sophisticated, full of grandeur and are synonymous with fashion,” said the energetic Johannesburg designer. “It is for this reason that it is essential to be part of such an event filled with grandiose and style.”

Segapo has some magic up his sleeve for the high-end fashion. “Avoid fakes and rather opt for designer or bespoke choices.” And don’t forget to look down before you walk out, shoes can make or break your outfit.

“For an event of this nature, a true fashionista knows when to stay away from clothes that resemble those picked from a rail in a shop or clothes that scream costume,” expressed the daring designer.

This year’s “Big Screen” theme is a call back to the classic screen queens like Liz Taylor in Cleopatra or leading men like Robert De Niro in Casino.

“But please don’t think James Bond, the penguin look is so dull for horseracing events,” added Segapo.

Sagepo has carved a name for himself in the flashing lights of SA fashion since his genesis in 2007. His designs have a classic, modern, and provocative feel and in 2010 he established his own unique PALSE brand.

According to Segapo, fashion lovers wanting to beat the winter blues should pick colours like ox blood red, dark brown, beige and choose fabrics like velvet, tweed, tartan and milton.

Men trying to navigate their race day attire are in safe hands, just follow Segapo’s advice and you will be the star of the show.

The 2014 Vodacom Durban July will be staged at Greyville racecourse on Saturday 5 July 2014. More information can be found at http://www.vodacomdurbanjuly.co.za

DJ Cleo Dumped His Father Like a Used Condom

DJ Cleo is busy gaining weight while his own dad can’t even afford a loaf of brown bread

A loving father suffered to educate his boy. And the talented son became a millionaire. Then dumped his sick old father like a used condom!

“When I think of all the money I spent on his education, my heart bleeds. I’m heartbroken, because my rich son doesn’t give a rat’s arse about me!” said DJ Cleo’s dad, Samuel Monyepao (64).

His son is an award-winning producer, DJ and aspiring goalie. Samuel educated and supported him up to the age of 25, when the boy was still known as Tlou Cleopas Monyepao.

He brags about his achievements as DJ Cleo, while his one-legged diabetic dad lives in filth with nothing to eat.
When Sunday Sun visited Samuel in Bochum, Limpopo, he said: “The last time he was here he brought me a bucket of KFC. And this is the man who owns 10 houses in Joburg and more than a dozen cars.

“Tlou (DJ Cleo) never visited me in hospital after my right leg was cut off. If I call him, he tells me he is busy and gets angry when I ask to see my grandchildren.

“He knows the troubles I have – with no iron, heater or kettle, let alone enough food to eat,” said the suffering mkhulu.

Recently, DJ Cleo did a live broadcast from a Limpopo regional radio station. Samuel heard him on the show and had this to say: “He was talking about his soccer career and being a biker. I was really hurt when he didn’t even bother to set foot in my yard to see how I was doing.” 

A well-informed source said Cleo forgot about his dad after his parents’ marriage ended in Springs and Samuel moved back to Bochum.

A family member, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “Tlou never visited his dad in hospital and the last time he came to visit him he never even asked what happened to his dad’s missing leg. Samuel has diabetes and his leg had to be amputated.”

When called for comment, DJ Cleo didn’t want to talk. He just dropped the phone. And he never responded to SMSes the SunTeam sent him about his dad’s plight. – Sunday Sun

Vodacom Durban July Invited Designers Thrive on Movie Theme

Durban – Eight of South Africa’s most celebrated designers pulled out all the stops to wow the excited crowds with their interpretation of this year’s Vodacom Durban July theme “The Big Screen” at the Vodacom Durban July Invited Designer showcase presented by LIPSY, LONDON.

The annual Vodacom Durban July fashion Experience is the highlight for any fashionista and audiences were dipped into a pool of classic cinema for the night.

The Vodacom Durban July Invited Designer Showcase followed a dazzling fashion show by the ten finalists for the Vodacom Durban July Young designer Award and the Vodacom Durban July Fashion Challenge.

Loved fashion designer Kathrin Kidger used old Hollywood glamour combined with the Rita Hayworths and Marilyn Monroes of this world as her outfit inspirations. “These glamorous icons were silver screen beauties and I decided to choose fabrics that were soft in colour and had some fringing.”

Paledi Segapo, one of the two Johannesburg designers in this year’s star-studded showcase, explained how; “Queen Elizabeth was my Big Screen inspiration. I used fabrics like brocades, Thai raw silk, and lace to capture the essence of Queen Elizabeth.”

Casey Jeanne wasn’t inspired by one particular movie but, “Took pieces of inspiration from Game of Thrones and Frozen.” The designer best known for her wonderful wedding creations used different shades of whites and embellished lace as some of the elements in her romantic designs.

The streets of Brooklyn and the underworld of the mafia was dashing designer’s Andre Martin’s Big Screen inspiration. “I tried to incorporate the street vibe into something more glamorous using fabrics like PU leather and tracksuit fabric.”

Iconic designer David Tlale chose his own story as the vision behind his African styled designs. “I based them on my fashion movie that I‘m releasing in November which is a snippet of the life of David Tlale in South Africa and taking the brand to the global market. I chose purple, the colour of royalty, which is what David Tlale stands for.”

“I knew immediately that Breakfast in Tiffany’s was my big screen inspiration!” explained Durban designer Vino Moodley. “I just love Aubrey Hepburn! I took the iconic pearl necklace and transformed it into another feature on the dress.”

Karen Monk Klijnstra chose a movie icon that spoke to her own quirky design style. “The movie Freda was my muse. The way she dressed and her fashion colour and texture, she was just perfect.”

Fashion lovers can catch a first-hand glimpse of these ensembles on the Action Stage at Greyville Racecourse at the Vodacom Durban July on July 5.
The 2014 Vodacom Durban July will be staged at Greyville racecourse on Saturday 5 July 2014. More information can be found at http://www.vodacomdurbanjuly.co.za

Lesbian Dog Undergoes World’s First Ever Pet Sex Change

When Charlene Walker adopted her pug, Jazzy, from a local pug rescue, she was elated to be bringing home the newest addition to her family.

However, almost immediately after they arrived home, Charlene began to notice that there was something peculiar about her cuddly canine friend.

“Whenever we took Jazzy to the dog park she would only play with male dogs whereas she always attempted to mount other female dogs. At home, she was very despondent. She seemed to be trying to communicate something, but I just couldn’t understand what it was.”

That’s when Charlene chose to take Jazzy to Holistic Veterinary Solutions, in Long Beach, California.

Holistic Veterinary Solutions is known for being a state of the art veterinary practice, yet they have also gained a somewhat questionable reputation for administering rather unconventional treatments as well. Some of these services include acupuncture, massage, chakra cleansing and past-life healing for animals, along with several other scientifically unfounded therapeutic procedures.

Doctor Autumn Shale, who has been the head veterinarian at the practice since 2001, was the first to consult Charlene about Jazzy’s unique condition.

After an extensive examination which included a hypnotism session, it was determined that Jazzy had been suffering from gender dysphoria; Meaning, Jazzy was a male dog trapped in a female dog’s body.

“It all suddenly began to make sense”, Charlene told National Report, “Everything about Jazzy’s behavior indicated that this was a spot-on diagnosis. I immediately scheduled her sexual reassignment surgery for the following week.”

To our knowledge, Holistic Veterinary Solutions is currently the only veterinary practice to have carried out this complex and controversial procedure.

The clinic has come under fire recently for merging approved veterinary techniques with progressive, new age practices. Many find their methods to be unethical and have petitioned to the state veterinary board to have the facility shut down and their doctors banned from practicing any form of veterinary medicine in the future.

The clinic’s lead veterinarian had this to say in regards to her practice. “Animal sex reassignment is an essential service. Before it was available, many pets had to suffer through life as the incorrect gender. We are proud to offer these cutting-edge advantages to our clients, which promotes the ultimate in wellness and well-being for their pets. There is really no reason our fuzzy friends should not be comfortable in their own fur.”

As for the Pug formerly known as “Jazzy”, he now goes by the more gender-appropriate name of “Jake”. His owner Charlene reports that the miraculous transformation has been a complete success.

“You would have never guessed he spent the last two months healing from the extensive surgical procedures he’s had to undergo, on top of the hormone replacement therapy. He’s so happy and joyful now. It’s like he’s the dog he was meant to be all along.”

(PIC) Millions of ANC supporters will most likely join the ANC Church

JOHANNESBURG – The late Dr. Nelson Mandela once uttered the idea of forming the world’s first political church, but following rife criticism by well respected men of the cloth, this idea went belly-up, indefinitely.

Today, six feet under and many full moons later, Tata’s ill-fated dream may soon be resuscitated. According to an ongoing investigation by the Sunday Time, very productive back-and-forth meetings have been [secretly] held between prominent leaders of the ANC and the National Council of Churches, the key agenda being the formation of a new political church affectionately named ANCC (or African National Congress Church).

The core objective of the ANCC, as furnished on its constitution, will be “to fulfill the spiritual needs of ANC’s staunch supporters while spreading the gospel through politics”. It is alleged that the new church will most likely be build…
