What did you wear to your matric dance?
Question of the month The GLAMOUR team responds.
Deputy Editor and Beauty Director Michelle Brownlee Smith firstname.lastname@example.org … My long, blue velvet dress with a low back was a classic. I loved it then and would still wear it now.
Staci Lazarus email@example.com … I wore a dark maroon fit-and-flare gown with a sweetheart neckline that was dotted with Swarovski crystals – I had to add that touch of bling!
Ziyaad Bassier firstname.lastname@example.org … Being tall and gangly, I was sadly swallowed by a too-big suit, which I jazzed up with a satin tie that matched my date’s equally awful purple outfit.
Chrisna de Bruyn email@example.com … A slinky black number that showed off my gure. I still adore black!
Karen Tennent firstname.lastname@example.org … My boyfriend’s mom, a talented dressmaker, made my fitted, pewter gown with floral embroidery. I’d wear it again, especially because it reminds me of her and she has since passed away.
Special Projects and Events Manager Sarah Tuft email@example.com … Black, tummy-baring Lycra in a style based on a swimming costume. Not my nest moment, but it was the ’90s!
Zulpha Meyers firstname.lastname@example.org … My aunt made my outift and I still wear it: a sophisticated nude dress with a black bow and matching jacket.
Sam O’dowd email@example.com … Pink isn’t usually my colour, but this was the night when I broke out of my usual all-black look with a pink dress featuring a sweetheart neckline, corset back and flower detail on the left hip.
Nandi Ndlovu firstname.lastname@example.org … A traditional beaded Xhosa outfit in red and black. I wanted to represent SA at my US international school.
