The You Magazine Spectacular drew a range of celebs to Gold Reef City for the annual bash. Fashion designer Paledi Segapo and stylist Nthato Mashishi dissect the fashion hots and nots.

Three things stood  out at last weekend’s You Spectacular  at The Lyric Theatre: the stand-up comedy of Devi Sankaree-Govender from Carte Blanche, Bonang Matheba’s genius as a presenter and the fashion on display. Here’s how the fashion experts judged the fashionistas of  the evening:

Who sparkled in the slinky black dress?

Paledi: Pam and Tamara make Bokang look like Cinderella and they look like her fashion evil sisters. Pam’s frock looks disturbing. Her nipples shout “look at me” and the dress looks costumey. Tamara looks overstyled. Bokang looks feisty and picture perfect in a Rubicon floor-length number – chic and timeless.

Nthato: Bokang and Tamara give this a different take, while Bokang could have worn her hair in a bun so as not to distract from the upper detailing. I liked the Italian sexy look on Tamara. She was brave to wear the dress Oluchi is in on the latest Elle cover. She gave it a rock feel. Pam’s hair and make-up are on point, but too much is going on with the studs and the sheer fabric.

Who wore the monochrome better?

Paledi: Shabalala looked dapper, timeless and sleek, and wore it better, making him quintessentially on point. Mabaso looked overstyled and the scarf is out of place, making him seem too much like a pimp.

Nthato: Shabalala wore it best. I love that the arms are black. The cut fits him perfectly and he’s well groomed. He was one of my best-dressed men of the night. Mabaso could have given Shabalala a run for his money, but he failed with this look. He messed it up instead by not putting on a shirt and the red scarf should have been a handkerchief.

The white jacket brawl

Paledi: The fit is impeccable on Clint. Kabomo’s blazer is actually wearing him and makes him look plus size and short. Same applies to Tumisho. There is just way too much fabric, evidently not cut for his body’s silhouette.

Nthato: Clint wins with flying colours with this sexy mafia look. The fabric is on point and shows off his great body. Tumisho could have won, but his look is for a polo event. I love the fit and the effort. Kabomo’s look lacks punch. A tailored jacket and a dramatic handkerchief could have saved it.
