LIVE BLOG: Politicians start trickling in for the #SONA2017
Fashion designers Gert-Johan Coetzee of GJC‚ Ole Ledimo of House of Ole and Gugu Mlambo Msomi of Gugulam are weighing in on the various looks:
An early thumbs down went to Democratic Alliance MP Natasha Mazzoni. She arrived with her blonde locks curled and parted at the side in a red angel high-neck dress‚ and matching red lipstick.
“The colour red makes her look bigger. The dress looks like it was not made for her. Not a well-made dress in my opinion‚” said Ledimo.
Oops: Coetzee said that the piece is one from his Spree online retail range‚ although he did not dress her for the event.>https://twitter.com/wordnerd212/status/829680551099502594
DA MP Juanita Terblanche arrived in a vintage-inspired black‚ velvet dress‚ with pearls streaming down the mid-section of her back‚ chandelier style.
This won another reprimand from Ledimo‚ who said: “I’m definitely not in favour of the ‘Oscar’ look for the opening of Parliament. The pearls are definitely too heavy for that dress… I think we get dress codes so wrong”.
Again‚ Coetzee disagreed.
“I think it’s beautiful‚ a powerful look and nice on a red carpet‚” said Coetzee.>https://twitter.com/wordnerd212/status/829681713550868481
