It was glitz and glam as South Africa’s most fashionable and elite came together for the prestigious South African Style Awards that took place in Sandton City recently.
The awards, which has been running for 21 years, is a celebration of style excellence. A host of judges from Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town were asked to nominate two people who they believe are on top of their style games in nine different categories. Awards ranged from most innovative style to the arts and philanthropic icon award.
Here’s a look of some of the winners.
1 Luthando Shosha aka Lootlove bagged herself the most innovative style award.
2 Instagram sensation Kefilwe “kefiBoo” Mabote slayed all the way to her the next big thing/style in the city award.
If you told me seven years ago this is the woman I would have become, I probably wouldn't have believed you. All I intended on doing was just living my life the way I wanted and sharing my style days with people who chose to follow me. What has evolved from this has been monumentally life changing! Receiving The Next Big Thing Award at the #SAStyleAwards17 is an absolute honour! Thank you to every single one of you who follow me and for your ongoing support. I know I wouldn't be where I am today without you. Dress @lamancheofficial Hair styled by @lajawihair Make up @celestemakeup
