5. Chiedza Mhende

We couldn’t keep our eyes off Chiedza Mhende; she looked absolutely breathtaking in an African-inspired ensemble.


6. Dineo Moeketsi 

Dineo’s dress didn’t blow us away, but her make-up was flawless.

Oooh it’s the lights… Action… Hollywood ??? Queening in @quiteria_george and @_mimco accessories ??? ?: @mr3vcom

7. DJ Zinhle 

Dj Zinhle left us underwhelmed in a dress that looked dated.


8. Khanyi Mbau 

Khanyi Mbau went sheer and over the top. We were most definitely here for it. Yaaass girl!

they said “LEADER OF THE PACK” and I responded… Dressed by @antherline ?: @dylankardashian #founder #? #MOAP

9. Letoya Makhene 

Letoya got a thumbs down from us.


10. Mbali Nkosi 

The bodice of Mbali’s dress was stunning, but it seems the designer got over paying attention to detail with the lining of the skirt.

When glam meets perfect detailing ???? only @quiteria_george of course ?? #VDJ2016

13. Ntando Kunene 

Miss SA Ntando Kunene, served a whole lot of leg and rocked her dress like second skin. Fierce!

14. Omuhle Gela

The ruffle detail brought this dress to life. It was just enough to make a statement without being untidy. Nice one, Omuhle.

15. Pearl Modiadie 

Pearl’s accessories and outfit clashed. Her accessories were captivating and powerful, but the rest of the outfit disappointed.


16. Pearl Thusi 

Pearl was a princess in an embellished dress. Her hair…yaaass!!!

We were unsure what was happening with this look worn by Thembi Seete but what we are sure about is that it got a big no from us.

 Thuli Phongolo was a vision white.
