Cape Town model Minki van der Westhuizen, who turned 21 on Saturday, has signed a lucrative lingerie contract with major British label Eveden Limited.

The announcement was made at her 21st birthday party, held at Rhodes House on Friday night.

Eveden did not disclose the value of the contract but it is said to be worth "a substantial amount", topping Van der Westhuizen's Guess Jeans contract, which she signed in 2001.

It was a night of high spirits and some emotion for Van der Westhuizen who was unmissable in a red dress designed by Hip Hop, and followed around by a river of photographers and a bodyguard for most of the evening.

Décor specialists turned Rhodes House into a fairyland, stringing a kilometre of lights in the main dance hall, which was crammed with more than a thousand people.

Former pop idol Heinz Winckler sang a number of songs including a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday.

Celebrity guests included super-model Brett Shuttleworth, former Miss Universe and presenter Michelle McLean and P4 Radio presenter Natalie Becker.

Also there were Big Brother winner Ferdinand Rabie, ex-Springbok rugby player James Small and Christina Storm, cricketer Jacques Kallis and fiancée Cindy Nel and cricketer Andrew Hall's wife Leanie Hall who came from Johannesburg for the celebrations.

Van der Westhuizen's former boyfriend, SA cricket captain Graeme Smith, was nowhere to be seen.

Eveden's art and creative director for the Freya lingerie range Pippa Neal said Van der Westhuizen was chosen from hundreds of models and signed because of her "great personality", and her "small back and big bust size", which was a growing trend in body shape in Britain.

The young model will remain in South Africa, travelling overseas only when necessary.

Van der Westhuizen celebrated her actual birthday at home with family and friends in Durbanville on Saturday night.
