Today was the annual Vodacom Durban July Races 2012, one of the biggest horse racing events in South Africa where people do not only attend hoping to win a few million on the horses, but also to show off their fabulous fashion!
The event was crawling with celebrities from Jeannie D, Jo-Ann Strauss, Miss SA - Melinda Bam, David Tlale, Liezel van der Westhuizen and Simba from Top Billing to mention but a few. Everyone was dressed to impress in some of our country's leading designers such as Gavin Rajah, Gideon and Elbeth Gillis .
The theme for the July this year was "material girl" focusing on using recyclable material in creating an interesting garment. My general impression of the overall fashion at the event was actually a bit disappointing, like David Tlale said "it is not just putting trash together, but making it look fabulous" and most people got this wrong.
Most of the people had the right idea, but when it came to putting the look together it came out completely wrong from the clothes to the hair, make up and shoes.
