WhilemostSouth Africans are still bowled over by the State of the Nation Address (SONA) delivered by our new president, Cyril Ramaphosa, we take a look at some of the best dressed couples to grace the red carpet ahead of the event.
This year’s SONA is a remarkable one as the newly appointed president of South Africa is addressing the nation for the very first time.
Walking a 250m red carpet, Members of Parliament returned to the House in style on Friday evening.
On the red carpet at #SONA2018:
Minister of Police Fikile Mbalula and his wife Nozuko Mbalula were one of the best dressed couples, him rocking up in a subtsu checkered grey suit and her in a fitted green drappe gown.
The “Gigabytes”, Malusi Gigaba and his wife Norma, lived up to their high fashion standards with the finance minister in a tailored navy suit and Norma looking like a goddess in a red off-the-shoulder gown with embroidered bustier.

Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane and his wife Natalie couldn’t be left off the list. Natalie upped the style quotient in a stunning floral dress with lace detail. Maimane also complemented his wife in a 3-piece tailored grey suit.

Bheki Cele’s wife Thembeka Cele also bowled us over in a ravishing off-the-shoulder gown with embroidery around the waist and bust. Bheki looked dapper in his suit and fedora.
