Deputy Ed­i­tor and Beauty Di­rec­tor Michelle Brown­lee Smith michelleb@con­de­nast.co.za … My long, blue vel­vet dress with a low back was a clas­sic. I loved it then and would still wear it now.

Staci Lazarus staci@con­de­nast.co.za … 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 ziyaad@con­de­nast.co.za … 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 chrisna@con­de­nast.co.za … A slinky black num­ber that showed off my gure. I still adore black!

Karen Ten­nent kar­ent@con­de­nast.co.za … 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 saraht@con­de­nast.co.za … Black, tummy-bar­ing Ly­cra in a style based on a swim­ming cos­tume. Not my nest mo­ment, but it was the ’90s!

Zul­pha Mey­ers zul­pha@con­de­nast.co.za … My aunt made my outift and I still wear it: a so­phis­ti­cated nude dress with a black bow and match­ing jacket.

Sam O’dowd sam@con­de­nast.co.za … 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 nandi@con­de­nast.co.za … A tra­di­tional beaded Xhosa out­fit in red and black. I wanted to rep­re­sent SA at my US in­ter­na­tional school.
