Best sup­port­ing ac­tress win­ner, Sihle Ndaba, won on the red car­pet when she ar­rived in a cerise gown. The dress was a sim­ple, floor-length cre­ation and she looked fab­u­lous in the colour. She tied her braids up into a bun to keep the neck­line clean and to show off her pretty neck. She kept it sim­ple and stylish and it worked.

Co­me­dian David Kau went for a brown, striped jacket worn with black pants, a dark-grey shirt and a black tie. The jacket lets down an oth­er­wise well-put-to­gether for­mal look. Next to him, MC Zikhona Sodlaka looked glam in an elec­tric-blue body­con skirt and a sim­ple black top with a red jacket over it. An easy-to-cre­ate combo that looked good on the red car­pet. Beau­ti­ful.

Ac­tress Terry Pheto stole the show in a fab white-caped gown. The del­i­cate de­tail on the arms was sub­tle, but added a soft­ness and el­e­gance to her beau­ti­ful out­fit. She kept her ac­ces­sories to a min­i­mum and this al­lowed her dress (and the con­trast­ing pop of her hair) to do the rest. The best-dressed per­son­al­ity on the night.

Ac­tress Xo­lile Tsha­bal­ala went for a ready-to-wear red dress with a ruched de­tail un­der the em­pire line. She wore the dress with­out adding too much to it, and looked pretty and com­fort­able. Although the shoes could have been a dif­fer­ent colour, the dress’ colour was per­fect on her.

Tarina Pa­tel from Gen­er­a­tions The Legacy wore a de­light­ful, printed minidress. The de­tail­ing on the dress is in­tri­cate and beau­ti­ful, and makes for a re­fresh­ing red-car­pet look. This was a lovely choice.
