Moët & Chandon once again hosted its annual Moët & Chandon Grand Day on 22 June at the Michelangelo Hotel in Sandton. This global celebration was a sparkling day filled with glitz and glamour which saw friends of the Champagne House raise their glasses to the 150th anniversary of the Moët & Chandon Impérial.

The theme was a contemporary reinterpretation of New York City’s 70s glitz and glamorous
discos. The celebration saw Moët & Chandon unite over a million people from New York to Johannesburg and Ibiza to Tokyo. A Moët champagne pyramid,  a signature symbol of the House, dazzling disco balls and perfectly themed décor set the tone for an evening of grand celebration.

As one of the most sought-after invitations, Moët & Chandon hosted a glamorous crowd of Johannesburg’s glitterati with guests including Boity Thulo, Maps Maponyane, Jessica Nkosi, Kelly Khumalo, Khanya Mkangisa, and Thembi Seete. All guests were dressed in Studio 54 themed outfits.

GQ’s Editor, Yati Khumalo, awarded most glamorous female to Tshepi Vundla in a dazzling silver sequin outfit, with Mandla Mngomezulu taking best dressed male in a leopard print suit designed by Paledi Segapo. 

Guests were invited to celebrate their own iconic #MoetMoment with a stylish miniature bottle of the alluring signature Moët Impérial thanks to Africa’s first Moët Mini machine.

“On Moët & Chandon Grand Day, we are thrilled to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Moët Impérial, our signature champagne that has embodied the grandeur of the House since 1869,” said Pascal Asin, Moët Hennessy Managing Director Africa Middle East. 

“Moët & Chandon is synonymous today with celebration because for almost three centuries, we have combined our ‘savoir-faire’ (know-how) with our own art of the fête to perfect a unique ‘savoir-fête’ that has made our champagnes a great choice for toasting both intimate moments and important milestones.”

Dj PH entertained guest as a gold 6 litre illuminated Moët & Chandon Jeroboam was uncorked and served on the dancefloor, another sparkling moment in an evening of overflowing and festive generosity. 

Guests joined in a spirited countdown to the connected group toast as gold confetti rained down from the ceiling, a true Moët Moment which sealed the celebratory tone for the magical evening.
