Some of your favourite celebrities dazzled at the racecourse, while others simply fell flat.

The stars came out to play and slay on the weekend at the Greyville Racecourse for the 2018 Vodacom Durban July.

Fashionistas and designers were encouraged to create timeless fashion to keep in line with this year’s theme of ‘It Is Time’.

The women drew inspiration from The Great Gatsby with infusions of tassels, lace, metallics, pops of vintage colour, classic silhouettes and an array of designs, from suits to jumpsuits and long and short dresses.

The men stepped up their game this year, and Greyville came alive with bold colours, striking prints and out-there suits.
