Minnie Dlamini will rock the Vodacom Durban July red carpet today in a supersexy gown by celebrity designer Gert-Johan Coetzee inspired by the plumage of a white peacock.
“When you mix all the colours of light together you get white light… and that’s pure magic,” explained the innovative designer.
“That led me to the striking beauty of a white peacock. Making a dress for Minnie for the July is great fun, because you can go edgier and be more playful than with regular red carpet occasions.”
The asymmetrical gown shows Dlamini’s curves off to best effect, with soft frills tumbling down to a floor-length hemline while showing plenty of leg, and a bodice embellished with Swarovski crystals and laser-cut detail that mimics feathers.
The SuperSport presenter’s look is completed with long, flowing locks and, in true horse-racing style, a cheeky fascinator.
“I haven’t been to the Durban July for a few years, and I’m so excited to be coming out of hiding in a custom GJC,” she said. “The colour of magic is written all over this whimsical design… I’m in love!”
