The Best Red-Carpet Fashion from the 2017 SAFTAs

Your fave SA celebs rocked the red carpet!

The 11th annual South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAS) took place this past weekend at Sun City in Johannesburg and all the stars came out to play. Our fave part about the awards ceremony? The fashion, of course. The red-carpet glam was nothing short of amazing and these local stars showed us what South Africa truly has to offer in terms of talent and style. The awards celebrated all local television and film talent and was a night to be remembered.

The ladies were not the only ones who dressed to impress – the men wowed us, too. We cannot be prouder of these South African celebs who have style, talent and major confidence!

Blue Mbombo rocked the red carpet in this beautiful ensemble. The thin belt accentuates her figure and the red lips add a bold statement.

2 Masechaba Ndlovu

This talk-show host wowed us in her colourful gown. The gold jewellery complemented the multicoloured dress and the satin material was a crowd favourite.

3 Masechaba Ndlovu and hubby Vusi Ndlovu

Her gold bangles are winning accessories (she wore them at two red-carpet events). However, her most memorable accessory is her hubby Vusi Ndlovu, who looked fashion-forward in his all-black attire.

The queen of all things fashion can do no wrong. This sheer dress shows off her amazing AF body and also set the standard high for the red-carpet fashion. Go, girl!

5 Jessica Nkosi

@jessicankosi arrives looking absolutely breathtaking in her @davidtlale gown. Wow. #SAFTAs11 #suncity

Jessica Nkosi looked breathtakingly beautiful in her David Tlale long-sleeved black dress. We love the all-black look with her light hair and red lips. FYI, black is the new everything.

6 Penny Lebyane

Penny Lebyane looked radiant in a body-con dress with simple accessories and a glowing smile. Confidence is beaming from the local star and we are all about it!

Thanks to these local celebs, South African fashion is making a mark on the world! #COSMOFashion
