This is a problem. In triplicate. Three stars, three dresses that look like they came from the same designer. So who wears theirs best? Not you Boity, that’s for sure. Suddenly you’re dressing like the mother of the bride. What happened to Boity of the booty? You’re young and gorgeous, and should dress like it. Also, these sheer sleeves. Why? Why!


Dear Phuti. We love you, but please go home and change. If you’re already wearing an entire jewellery box on your bosom, honey, you don’t need teardrop earrings and you sure as hell don’t need the dodgy Grecian forehead thing. Also, can we talk about your hair? Worn up, it would have shown off your beautiful décolletage.


So that leaves you Sis Ribs, the mother of gospel who has spawned whole generations of singers who want to sound just like you. You win this round, Ms Malope. On you, the diamanté disaster looks age appropriate, church appropriate and bling but not too bling. Not saying we like any of this, but you pulled it off.


We don’t know why we like you so much in this, Bonang. It’s all a bit of a human corsage and that fishtail and tulle, really? But it’s gorgeous. The colour’s on trend, it’s naughty in all the right places. (Hear that, Boity?) The hair is just right and so are the minimal accessories.
