It's hard to believe that the SA Style Awards have been happening every year for the past 21 years. Very few local events have both the staying power and the ability to effortlesly move with the times.
For an event that began when social media wasn't even an idea their ability to integrate both the new platforms and the stars of these platforms into the fabric of the SA Style Awards is commendable.
Last night saw the 2017 winners (who were announced a few weeks ago) come together for a MET Gala themed soiree following a series of events over the past few weeks.
Most of Joburg's most stylish media personalities were in attendance as well as the who's who of the fashion scene to honor the likes of the late/great Jenny Andrews as well as Loot Love, Thembisa Mdoda, Ayanda Thabethe and more.
It was disappointing to not have the likes of Black Coffee and Candice Swanepoel in attendance but just one look at their soaring career would suffice as an apology for their absence. Those who were there however included the likes of Vannessa Carierra who was draped in red, silky Gert Johan Coetzee
Rapper, Reason, who was there to support his ever-so-stylish girlfriend and the winner of the Most Innovative Style award, Loot Love.
eTV Sunrise anchor, Penny Lebyane, who interviewed Thembisa Mdoda, among others.
Most Stylish Media Personality winner, Ayanda Thabethe.
And thee most stylish couple, Dineo Moeketsi and Solo.
