J&B Met: a final look at the 2010 event
Last weekend’s J&B Met at Kenilworth Racecourse will be remembered for the vibrant outfits inspired by the event theme, “In full colour.”
Some of South Africa’s most popular celebrities attended the event, which attracted around 50 000 people.
From models wearing body paint, to executives in designer suits, the day was a mix of glamour and funk.

The actual horse-race was well-contested, with River Jetez defeating her brother, Pocket Power, to stop him claiming a fourth consecutive title.
The siblings are part-owned by Capetonian Marsh Shirtliff, who had much to smile about after the race. He told Cape Town Tourism that he’d put a “small bet” on Pocket Power.
Mike Bass, who trained both Pocket Power and River Jetez, said in an exclusive interview that he’d had a special feeling about the filly on the day.
