The annual Vodacom Durban July featured many a celebrity opting for eye-catching pops of colour – so much so that you’d have thought it was this year’s theme. ‘It is time’ were, in fact, the words to interpret, and while some celebrities and influencers chose to stand out in bright hues, others chose to shine (literally).
