Kentse Masilo also represented the continent in the form of her bespoke design. The Project Runway SA winner created a metallic, slim-fitting, fringed gown with a plunging neckline. The floor-length design completed with long sleeves suited Thuso’s frame perfectly.

Thuso did not walk away with an Emmy, but we are sure it’s going to be third time lucky!
