ANC MP Omie Singh with his wife, Popsi
We predicted what we’d like to see our politicians wear to the State of the Nation Address, suggesting that local designers such as Thula Sindi, Sindiso Khumalo, Quiteria & George and Gert-Johan Coetzee dress our political figures.
These 10 looks spotted on the #SONA2019 red carpet do deserve a mention:
The Deputy Minister of Communications’ emerald green gown is the ‘GJC canary yellow dress’ of 2019. A sure win.
Desbo Mohono and Thandi Modise
MEC Desbo Mohono and the Chairperson of the National Council of Provinces look rather print-cess like in their chic dresses.
Adv Busisiwe Mkhwebane
The Public Protector dazzled in a B Mashilo Designs gown.
Prof Mamokgethi Phakeng
The Fab Academic lived up to her name in African print and a pretty pink hue.
Phumzile van Damme
Coordinating in gold with her sister Qiniso.
The ANC MP’s glasses are an absolute vision. Pun intended.
Minister Nathi Mthethwa’s partner’s dress in a flattering, standout orange dress. We love it.
Making a bold statement in red.
