South African celebrities, VIPs and media arrived in full red carpet glamour to raise a martini glass to the 24th James Bond action film: Spectre.
The private screening held at Nu Metro, V&A Waterfront, was hosted by the world’s original luxury vodka, Belvedere Vodka, to celebrate the brands partnership with Spectre. Belvedere is the drink of choice for the distinguished British Secret Service agent who enjoys his martini: very dry and ‘shaken not stirred’.
Bond’s martini preference of ‘shaken, not stirred’ is globally recognized as an expression of his impeccable taste and unparalleled style. When it comes to his signature drink, Mr. Bond chooses Belvedere, the vodka of choice for tastemakers who Know the Difference, echoing the award-winning campaign promoting knowledgeable choices.
Posing for photos on the red carpet as cameras flashed were celebrated faces such as Hakeem Kae-Kazim, Katlego Maboe, Cindy Nel-Roberts, Danilo Acquisto, Zoe Brown, Katryn Kruger, Liezel van der Westhuizen, Dave Kabamba, Jen Su, Tanya Nefdt, Twala N’gambi as well as KLUK CGDT’s Malcom and Christiaan.
Following the exclusive screening, invited guests headed to the glamorous after party held at Meloncino at the V&A Waterfront. Overlooking the harbour, guests enjoyed BELVEDERE 007 SPECTRE martinis in true Bond style. And it was no longer a notion but a fact, Excellent Choice, Mr Bond.
