Durban divas: Sorisha, ‘RHOD’ stars take Durban July

The stars of Showmax’s Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD), including leading lady Sorisha Naidoo, came out to play at the fashion Durban July this weekend.



Putting their best foot forward – in designer heels, no less – the reality TV stars clawed for the spotlight in their couture gowns.

But did they do their city justice when it came to strutting their stuff?

On Instagram, Real Housewives of Durban star Sorisha Naidoo showed off her unique look for the Durban July, which took place on 6 July at the Greyville Racecourse.

With the theme being “Ride The Wave,” the wife of Vivian Ready went for an ocean-inspired outfit.

“Technology meets couture in our first electronic gown. Inspired by a romantic dark starry night with a luminous coral reef,” she captioned the blue bejewelled gown adorned with lights.

“Today’s look was inspired by a resilient rock in the ocean. No matter how much it’s beaten, it continues to stand strong”, Maria captioned a post of her couture gown.

Meanwhile, Slee Ndlovu channeled a majestic mermaid in a dress featuring a “hand-painted oceanic canvas.”

Joining the Real Housewives of Durban cast were stars from the Ultimate Girls Trip spin-off, who joined the coastal queens at the Durban July.

Lethabo Mathatho of Real Housewives of Johannesburg, unfortunately, landed on the “worst-dressed list,” thanks to an ill-fitting nude and silver gown.

Beverly Steyn of the Real Housewives of Cape Town channeled a sea goddess, complete with a crown. Meanwhile, Liz Prins of Gqeberha came ready for a party in a little blue number.
