The gala event to honour Time magazine’s annual 100 most influential list was held in New York this week. Some heavyweights tramped the red carpet, and Gugulethu Mhlungu checked them out. This is what she thinks
Time 100 honouree and rap queen Nicki Minaj showed up in this black funereal number. The sleeves and high neck were cute, but that’s really about it. An underwhelming frock that did very little for her.
Caitlyn Jenner went for this simple floor-length gown with a sweetheart neckline. The dress is not amazing, but it does the job. Simple, smart and black is always a good choice.
Ariana Grande went for this over-the-top gown with a very dramatic skirt and train. Were it on anyone else, I doubt it would have worked. But what a fun and beautiful dress for her! Actor Priyanka Chopra went for the all-white look with this suit. The jacket is a lot of fun, and makes an otherwise okay outfit look cool. Comedian Trevor Noah looked very suave in this all-black look. The magic of a well-fitted suit cannot be overstated. Nice one, Trevor! TV personality Gayle King went for this very pretty, sparkly shift dress. Great colour, great shape and the blue panels add a nice contrast. Simple sophistication.
