Sunday, September 4th was a gorgeous day at the Inanda Polo Club in Sandton, Johannesburg South Africa. Polo season has been in full swing all 2022 and the Aon Inanda International Polo in association with Heineken hosted the industry’s finest guests to the final installment of 2022 Polo action at the Inanda Sandton grounds and MEFeater was in attendance. Esteemed guests such as visitors from the UK, media companies, celebrities, influencers, and consumers of the Heineken brand all gathered and enjoyed the world-class level match between the United Kingdom and South African ladies which ended with a win for the UK.
The event had a Style Council which consisted of the fashion industry’s best creators and most stylish ladies, including fashionista Zoe Msutwana, Inanda Polo previous “Best Dressed” winner and actress Tshiamo, stylist and creative consultant Cherné, and digital creator and influencer Lerato Kgamanyane. They had the tough decision to crown the best-dressed female, best-dressed male and best-dressed couple, which obviously couldn’t have been easy as all the ladies and gents really went all-out and dressed to the tee following the “Spring Polo Chic” theme.
