Other judges include award-winning investigative journalist Devi Sankaree Govender, businesswoman and Miss South Africa 1990 Suzette van der Merwe, and actor and TV personality Thando Thabethe.

Unfortunately, one of the judges, Prof Thuli Madonsela, came under fire for what she chose to wear to the event, with some "not so kind people" leaving harsh comments about her dress.

After these comments, the former public protector headed to Twitter to ask other users their opinion on the dress. "A few “not so kind people” have said my Designed and Made in Rwanda Dress looks like a bedspread or curtain. Do you agree?"

The post received a few mixed responses, with some users praising the dress while others continued with harsh comments.
