The host showed up in a Dainty Frocks gown, looking absolutely stunning in a pink and turquoise African print.
The reigning Miss SA showed up in a red sequin two-piece, with a black lacy top and leopar heels.
The stunning K Naomi, looked fashionable as always with a pink Diane-Paris dress, black pointed heels and a shoulder-length bob. We couln't help put give her extra points for the simple yet elegant look.
The gorgeous Samkelo showed some legs with her sequin jumpsuit and peach platform heels.
Ever the trend-setter, TV presenter and actress, Khanyi didn't disappoint in a nude dress, with brown lace shoulders matching her skin tone with tassels hanging from above the knee and sparkling golden peep toe heels. The see-through number was the perfect marriage of red carpet glamour and a touch of Khanyi's personal style.
Rosette Mogomotsi Ncwana
Model Rosette did justice to her red-hot outfit which, paired with a matching lipstick, made for the perfect red-carpet look. We're all for the combo of the blazer with the six-layered skirt.
Actress Zandile attended the show in a black dress with a traditional print bow and belt, matching the look to a black peep-toe heel. Her minimalist make-up complemented the look.
Draped in House of Jahdara, the stunning ‘Barbielish’ stepped out in an inticate ensemble - a mixture of lace, dark nude and black tassels. We totally approve of this look.
