Fashion hits & misses from the VDJ

accreditation

The annual Vodacom Durban July event took place this past weekend, the theme was 'Leader of the pack.' Some celebs tried, but most got it wrong.

Our fashion editor, Jessica Ramoshaba gives us her breakdown of the good, the bad and the down right ugly.

I love the dress but I wish she went for another colour since it's too similar to the one Bonang wore last year.

Gorgeous dress but it still would’ve made an impact without the sheer element.

Lovely look, she made an effort.

This is a hot mess

It's not bad but its not age appropriate. She could’ve tried something more younger, like her.

Sinazo Yolwa

She clearly didn’t get the brief.

I love the look, but it feels like its something we’ve seen before.

The dress is not amazing but I love the romantic side of her dreess

Thembi Seete

The only thing I love about this look is the colour

One word: Stunning.

Mbali Nkosi

It’s a no from me.

Bonang Matheba

Gorgours dress, but slightly off theme. It would’ve been great for a different event, she doesn’t look like shes leading the pack.

Omuhle Gela

Stunning dress for a different event, like a friends wedding.

Nomzamo Mbatha

A big NO: It's too simple for the Durban July. It looks like she just rushed it.

Blue Mbombo

Screen Shot 2016-07-04 at 10.15.50 AM

Absolutely gorgeous. Blue is my best dressed.

Dineo Moeketsi

This look is too busy. Great colour combination though.

Beautiful look, she could’ve tried the dark lip trend or at least red. Her shoes are too safe, she could've went with strapless heels. But stunning nonetheless.
