A pair of loved-up newlyweds, a couple of former beauty queens and a rapper are among the winners of the annual South African Style Awards.

For 23 years, these awards have been celebrating locals with a flair for fashion who are doing great things in their respect industries by handing out accolades for the "Most Stylish" individual(s) in various categories.
