This year African influence was clearly visible on the SAFTAs red carpet with actors, celebrities and filmmakers who chose local designs.


There was a clear theme on the red carpet this year and while the fashion sense was on par with international trends, designers put local flavor into their designs with a strong focus on “a pop of colour.”


Media personality, Anele Mdoda nailed her red carpet look while red carpet Queen, Bonang Matheba also shined bright in her nude creation.


But heads turned as entertainer extraordinaire, Somizi Mhlongo, who also hosted the red carpet event, glided into the room sporting an African influenced kaftan-like outfit.


Take a look at some of the night’s top looks here:
