Once again, thousands turned up at the Greyville Racecourse in Durban for the 119th Vodacom Durban July, but as usual it was the celebrity fashion — rather than the horses — which attracted the most attention. So let’s have a look at some of the fashion that was:
1. Lorna Maseko Lorna looked chic in this outfit but it lacked pizazz that should be reflected through any DBN July outfit. This outfit is nice but it’s not amazing.
2. Nomzamo Mbatha
This outfit just works. Its dramatic enough and sleek enough for the Durban July. The colour is extremely eye catching as well.
3. Jessica Nkosi
This dress is beautiful but she looks too casual in it. We do feel that the styling could’ve been better, maybe having her hair up in a dramatic bun with some chandelier earrings and dramatic red lipstick would’ve made it Durban July appropriate.
4. Terry Pheto
Terry is a lady that knows how to dress for any occassion. She looks absolutely gorgeous in this dress! Simplistic details can have a really dramatic impact if you do it right.
5. Pearl Thusi
Pearl’s dress is gorgeous! It is absolutely DBN July appropriate with that stunning slit that shows off her gorgeous legs. As for the cyan lipstick, not too sure about that maybe black cherry or plum lipstick wouldve done the trick.
6. Thuli Phongolo
This gown is gorgeous. The styling is point. We love this! We never expected Namhla from Generations to look this good. Nice one girl!
7. Luthando Shosha
This outfit does look a bit like the Matrix movie but there is something about it that we love. The jacket is so dramatic and relevant for the DBN July. This is a nice twist on a expected dress.
8. Boity Thulo
Boity looks so gorgeous in this outfit. She is definitely starting to look like a woman. The styling is simple and elegant.
9. Bonang Matheba
This dress is beautiful. The colour is really eye catching. We expected Bonang to wear something regal of course. But we feel like we keep seeing the same look from Bonang. She doesnt switch it up once in a while.
9. Amanda DuPont
First of all, lets please have a moment for this gorgeous dusty pink weave! The colour is modern and fresh! The outfit, is okay but its not the best that we have seen Amanda in.
Now this dress does not fit with Moozlie’s image. We expected something edgy and sexy from her to match her personality. The lace jacket thing doesnt work and the top bodice of this dress makes it look cheap.
11. Denise Zimba
Two words: ON FLEEK!! Denise is definitely not afraid to take a risk and go for the more sexy edgier option. Of course you need to have the body and be very confident to pull this off but we really love this outfit for DBN July.
