Johannesburg – The 2019 Vodacom Durban July has come and gone, and the fashion at the event had everybody talking. 

One of the standout pieces was a gorgeous ombre beaded Gert-Johan Coetzee dress worn by Bonang Matheba. 

The dress, made up of different shades of orange and red, was meant to replicate a sunset. 

In a video shared on Twitter by the B Force fan account, Gert can be seen putting the ensemble together before the event, describing his vision for the piece. 

Spotting the clip online, Bonang let everyone in on a little secret – according to the star, the dress weighed around 9 kilograms. "My entire body was in pain," she added. 

Well, you know what they say B, beauty is pain.
