The 2019 annual Sun Met was held this past Saturday, 26th of January, with this being the third year of sponsorship by Sun International and GH Mumm, which both bring an extra touch of luxury and glamour to the already glamorous day at the races.

The annual event brings fashion and racing together with some of the biggest celebrities attending in grand style at the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town.

This year’s theme was ‘African Luxury: Precious Metals’. Inspired by opulence, the theme for the 2019 edition of The Sun Met is a celebration of luxury with racing enthusiasts and fashionistas expected to shimmer and shine on Race Day.

Minnie Dlamini and Usain Bolt hosted the luxurious event, starting with Usain arriving by helicopter! Dlamini says, "It was so much fun and I'm still having a lot of fun and I can't wait for that after party at the paddock club to turn up with Usain Bolt."
