The long awaited Durban July came and saw the coastal city’s – Durban – Greyville Racecourse come to a standstill as tourists from all round the country heeded to the Captains summon to be seated at his table. The official Vodacom VIP Paddock marquee was aflutter with some of South Africa’s most prominent celebrities, businessmen and women who also came to witness some of the world’s fastest horses battle it out for the coveted title.
The crown was not only for the horse raising champions but also for the best dressed candidate with attendees showing up in their fabulous gowns and suits to compete for the most fashion forward looks inspired by the Captain’s Table theme.
The likes of Top Billing, Expresso and ANN7 were there to capture the moments speaking to some of Mzantsi’s celebrities about their looks and who designed them for them. Terry Pheto rocked up in style with her white pearl embellished gown put together by Gert-Johan Coetzee whilst Jessica Nkosi arrived in her gorgeous black vintage inspired look by Ntlatla Ngciza’s studios.
Some of the top business leaders that dressed to impress included Vodacom Executives, Nadia Mohamad who gracefully arrived in her GJC gown and Mzamo Masi in his all black tux.
The Vodacom Durban July is always lights, camera and fashion and this year’s installment was no different.
