JOHANNESBURG - Hot or not? The 2015 State of the Nation Address (SONA) fashion parade has seen a number of seriously stylish and seriously questionable outfits.
Images of important politicians and Members of Parliament on the red carpet flooded Twitter on Thursday afternoon as people started arriving ahead of SONA2015.
It&39;s not really a political event; they certainly don&39;t care about us. This is a fashion show. SONA— Graeme Shepherd (@GrndmstrFlash) February 12, 2015
Hau I didn&39;t know that the SONA was so exaggerated!! So much entertainment and too many fashion killers!— Linda Felicia Mabaso (@lfmabaso) February 12, 2015
i don&39;t like fashion enough to watch that red carpet thing before SONA and act like they&39;re s&39;posed to get it right. Got E! for that.— duduzile za mabaso (@uzamantungwa) February 12, 2015
