There’s a lot to look forward to during tonight's South African Film and Television Awards. The awards will be hosted by power duo, Pearl Modiadie and Thomas Msengana.

In addition, performances by the likes of Bongo Maffin, Boity and more will take the stage at the Sun City Superbowl this Saturday.

We at will be coming to you LIVE from the SAFTAs13 Red Carpet  at 6pm via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram! Follow us now and get all your fave's look direct off the red carpet - like we did for the #RoastOfAKA.

But before all the star-studded action begins (and we find out if The River will take home the whopping 17 awards they're nominated for), we need to get a bit excited, you know. It's one of our biggest red carpet events so the pressure is on. Let's take a moment to look back at the best looks from last year's SAFTAs12 red carpet...

Thuso Mbedu

The Emmy award nominated actress opted for this huge African print ball skirt with a little blue beaded crop top.

Rorisang T

The presenter had a full on princess moment. She wore this beautiful blush pink off the shoulder ball gown. She was a vision of beauty!

Thando Thabete

Last year's hostess started her night off in this nude illusion feathered gown paired with a sleek ponytail. This wasn't her best look of the night, she really pulled out the stops for her changes during the show.

Tumi Morake

The much loved comedian shocked fans in this sexy number with an asymmetrical neckline. We would love to see her this dressed up more often.

Nomzamo Mbatha

The fan favourite came with guns blazing last year in this number by David Tlale. She was on all of our best dressed lists!

Khanyi Mbau

This dress was a total show stopper last year. The butterfly concept was so unique and captivating in all images from the night. We're definitely gonna miss her contribution to the fashion of the night!
