With an unwavering commitment to this year’s theme, ‘Out of This World’, the actor’s captivating ensemble, masterminded by Gert-Johan Coetzee, left us in awe. We will try to describe this ensemble to the best of our abilities.

The upper portion resembles a golden breastplate adorned with an intricately engraved elephant, its tusk extending outwards, complemented by cascading chain beads that gracefully sweep the floor. The lower section showcases a metallic skirt with an elegant train, completing the ensemble with a touch of refined allure.

The beauty maintained a bold approach with her hair and makeup, choosing a braided updo adorned with gold accessories. A combination of neutral lips and radiant eye makeup perfectly harmonized with the hues of her dress. The addition of hoop earrings provided the finishing touch of glamour.
