Montgomery started on TV and stills sets doing the ‘odd jobs’. Assisting for years, he was privileged to work beside some of the most respected photographers. He fulfils his dream every time he gets behind his camera. Luke Ruiters is a Cape Town original. His love for fashion started at five, when he began playing in his mother’s closet. Years later, he graduated from the Design Academy of Fashion. On his day off, you’ll find him at Yours Truly. Our film guy for the last 11 years, Lombaert traded the Mother City for the Big Smoke two years ago. Since then, he’s enjoyed one-on-one interviews with the likes of Alicia Vikander, Eddie Redmayne, Kate Winslet and Sir Ben Kingsley to name a few. When not holding a mic, Lombaert spends his spare…

in spite of it all

Idon’t want to tempt the universe, but if you’re reading this, we’ve made it through the loopiest 2017 that ever 2017ed. Which means we made it through Twitter turning into an ‘I Can’t Believe He Said That’ app, a movement that finally began to expose the ugly truth about Hollywood, a slew of celeb autobiographies (for better or for worse), more finance ministers than actual finance, and a Lifetime movie about Oscar Pistorious which literally no one needed or asked for. But like Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s twins, sometimes for every one bad thing, there’s a host of better things in store. Wayde van Niekerk’s been setting world records, Thando Hopa dropped all kinds of greatness on Pirelli’s annual calendar, and Cassper Nyovest filled up yet another stadium. So despite having been…

the hit list

1 NESPRESSO EXPERT&MILK COFFEE MACHINE ‘As a confessed coffee addict, I’m very particular about how I have my coffee, and this machine allows me to make mine exactly how I like it.’ – Colleen Goosen, Managing Editor R5 500 buynespresso.com 2 DYSON SUPERSONIC HAIR DRYER ‘We don’t have enough space to go into specifics but in short, it took 50 months and 103 engineers to develop.

‘IT’S A COMPLETELY SURREAL EXPERIENCE... WATCHING 15 000 PEOPLE MOUTH THE WORDS TO A SONG YOU WROTE’ Cara Frew is our favourite kind of overachiever. The kind you love to love. The LA-based songstress counts speaking Zulu and cartwheeling on the back of a cantering horse as two of her skills. She’s competed in both the World Equestrian Games and Miss South Africa. And then there’s that magnetic voice of hers. It’s this last gift that she’s chosen to turn into a career, and with great success, too. At 26, the Sony-signed artist has several chart-dominating singles to her name. She’s collaborated with the likes of local house heavyweight Black Coffee (on ‘I’ll find you’) and American DJs SNBRN and BLU J (on ‘You got me’), and she’s performed to mega crowds…

king of the curl

He’s won countless contests, clinched second place in the World Surf League Men’s Championship Tour twice, is currently ranked third, and is one event away from a potential World Title win. Roughly rephrased: Jordy Smith is one of the universe’s greatest gifts to the world of wave riding. And happily for us, he’s made in South Africa. But long before all the wins and fans, he was just a kid from Durban who was raised on salt and sand. ‘My dad is a surfboard manufacturer, so I was out on the ocean by the age of two or three,’ says the pro surfer who currently lives between South Africa and San Clemente, California. Things took a turn when, at 15, Smith won the under-16 World Junior Championship. ‘One day I was just…

Those days are long gone. Here’s everything you need to put on before and after you dress or undress for the day.…
