The State of the Nation Address, at the annual opening of Parliament saw President Jacob Zuma address the nation on the current political and socio-economic state of our country.
While many were focused on every word uttered by the number one citizen of South Africa – the red carpet glamour proved as entertaining and spectacular. Lawmakers, together with their partners, walked the red carpet in vibrant fashion ensembles that had heads turning in absolute awe of the statement pieces worn to SONA 2017.
