It's that time of year again. The State of the Nation address has the entire country talking - particularly about the future of our economy.
But on a lighter note, we've been watching the red carpet at Parliament's arrivals gate and have rounded up some of the most outrageous and gorgeous outfits. See them all here:
Pat Sibande with Zamaphemba Ntuli. Ntuli certainly brought her accessory game tonight!
Mandla Mandela looks stylish as always - he opted for gladiator sandals once again this year!
MP Siphosezwe Masango and wife Minini in full Ndebele regalia. Incredible!
MP Dikeledi Mahlangu
Helen Zille arrives in a navy lace gown.
DA MP Natasha Mazzone in powder blue and sparkly heels.
MP Thoko Didiza brought some brightness with this outfit.
Dianne Kohler Barnard added lots of bright accessories.
Nthombethemba Ximba, wife of ANC MP Ximba chose to reflect the colours of her church, the Twelve Apostles Church of Christ. We adore it!
Kenneth Moshoeshoe and his wife arrive looking dashing.
Thuli Madonsela is a vision in canary yellow.
