Many can attest to the fact 2016 was definitely the year of highs and and lows.

And when it comes to celebrities and their fashion choices, the same can be said. Some nailed it consistently with impeccable style, while others opted to look expensively tortured.

As we wrap up the year, we take a look at the best dressed female celebrities in South Africa.

BONANG MATHEBA

Bonang Matheba has been the undisputed Queen of impeccable chic for a few years now, at least when it comes to South African celebrity land. Inside The 10 Things Everyone Is Dying To See On Bonang’s Upcoming Book, we begged the 29 year old to share her supreme style secrets for posterity. In 2016, Matheba was able to top the best dressed list at the MTV African Music Awards with all her outfit changes, even though she only found out days before the event that she’ll be replacing Trevor Noah as the host.

Well, here’s hoping everyone will be able to grab a couple of tips jotted by the Style Queen herself!

DINEO MOEKETSI 

Best Dressed South African Celebrities

At the beginning of 2016, she vowed to her fans that she would be pursuing more and better for herself on Instagram. And not only has the actress had a big year in front of the cameras in the past year, she’s also upped her game in threads!

What we love about Dineo Moeketsi is that she does not avoid a bit of drama. Her style choices for the red carpet are always over the top and jaw dropping. She loves playing around with different silhouettes, drapes, frills, prints and sheer. Girl, get them.

NANDI MADIDA

It goes without saying that Nandi Madida never gets it wrong. Ever!

The mother of one, actress and fashion designer wowed crowds and the press at the BET awards in the US earlier this year with her stunning dress from her clothing line Colour. She landed on Best Dressed Lists on big publications such as Elle and E! News across the Atlantic.

NOMUZI MABENA

Nomuzi Mabena is fierce and bold – it’s all evident in her style. She’s had a great year with no less than 5 television shows under her belt, leaving Cashtime Fam to start her own record label which will house her upcoming album, the Recipe rapper did all the cooking this year. Together with all of that, she made sure her style does not get compromised.

The face of Adidas keeps fans on their toes with her fashion choices and in particular, her clear penchant for interesting accessories. Last year it was all about the choker on her thighs and the beaded crown. We’ve been enjoying the shades this year!

LOOT LOVE

Look, we aren’t opening up a platform to discuss whether or not Luthando Shosha aka Loot Love is a style icon. It’s a fact!

We find her so absolutely refreshing in the game. We love her constant play on androgyny. She’s a helpless sneaker – head who does not mind wearing some of her fave kicks with a dress.

The way she switches between feminine and masculine styles makes her stand out. She’s so true to herself it couldn’t be more obvious.

SARAH LANGA 

Best Dressed South African Celebrities

Well of course! This whole list would have lost credibility had Sarah Langa not been featured. Her whole Instagram account could be a trip for hours. The Stylista ambassador and face of  Woolworths quite evidently loves fashion and is not scared to show that off.

KHANYI MBAU

Best Dressed South African Celebrities

When Khanyi Mbau is not making headlines, something she wore is.

The Katch It With Khanyi host clearly loves playing around with fashion on an everyday basis, if the snaps on her enviable gram are anything to go by. But make no mistake, she takes every risk left when it’s time to hit the red carpet.

We love that she never attempts blending in. She’s definitely a fearless woman, and it shows in her clothes.

NHLANHLA NCINZA

Best Dressed South African Celebrities

When you’ve garnered yourself respect for your style through the years, you design for others.

Nhlanhla Ncinza snatched herself the 2016 ABryanz Style & Fashion Award for The Best Dressed Female Artist in Southern Africa. Deservedly so.

The Mafikizolo singer boasts a 20 year musical career with hundreds of different vibrant looks she typically rocks for the iconic duo’s stage performances, and she still manages to get things exciting and just right all the time.

Now an award winning fashion designer for her fashion label NN Vintage, Ncinza gets to share her beautiful designs with others.

NOMZAMO MBATHA

Best Dressed South African Celebrities

Nomzamo Mbatha is an all round winner. She’s smart, beautiful and super talented. She’s also quite stylish, and we love how she’s embraced African prints and silhouettes to live truest to her ‘Nubian Princess’ title.

“Over the years, I’ve learnt not to conform to the norm of what fashion styles and trends are”, she penned down on her Instagram as she gushed about her 2016 SA Style Award for Most Stylish Artist in TV and Film. And it certainly shows!

K Naomi makes it looks so easy. Her style is discernibly ultra glam and chic, and we love the fact that she is pretty consistent with her plunging necklines and sheer gowns on the red carpet.

Her recent looks at the Durban July and the Chevy Feather Awards were absolute winners for 2016.

The Shocking Fallout of Black Motion

Tensions have reportedly escalated.

They are one of South Africa’s most revered music duos.

Their discography packs both blockbuster club bangers and lush delights for lovers of House with a transcendental African sonic flair. And the explosive fallout of Black Motion, which has been splashed across the internet long before reaching the courts, has shocked many.

Loved for their electrifying live performances and awe-inspiring chemistry, Mörda and Smol have always seemed like musical soulmates. But that relationship seems to have reached a bitter end.

In 2022, rumours of their reported split triggered a frenzy on the internet. Following the uproar, the group’s members Bongani Mohosana, who now goes as Mörda, and Smol (real name Roy Thabo Mabogwane), jointly calmed fears that they had fallen out.

It had been said the break would be temporary, as Mörda moved to focus on the release of his solo studio album.

Far from it, it now seems. The parties have escalated things to court.

According to reports, Black Motions have confirmed that they had pressed charges against Mörda for alleged housebreaking and theft.

A court order by the High Court in Gauteng posted on social media has ordered Morda to “restore possession of a recording studio apparatus” to the group by 13 January, at 5pm. 

Black Motion shared snaps of the alleged damage caused by Morda – a broken door and stolen equipment.

 

It looks like we won’t be getting a new Black Motion album with Mörda anytime soon.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW.

The highly anticipated social experiment brings under Biggie’s roof housemates from both South Africa and Nigeria. And for 72 days, we will be splashed with the finest in South African and Nigerian swag, banter, romance and all the trappings of a fun-filled, dramatic and – we’d hope – an entertaining show.

A first of its kind, the social experiment assembles the most colourful personalities from the two nations to outwit, outplay and outsmart each other in a bid to get their hands on a massive bag, life-changing bag!

In addition to a number of lofty prizes that will likely be on the line throughout the season, the winner of the show will also be walking away, a whopping grand prize of US $100 000 (over R1,7 million) is up for grabs for the one who trounces his Housemates to charm audiences across the continent.

That’s not all; the amount of social capital, celebrity and opportunities for lucrative brand deals after the show, all form part of the career-launching lift-off that comes with being on the popular franchise.

Both Big Brother Mzansi host Lawrence Maleka and Big Brother Naija’s Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will co-host this debut season.

Fans of Big Brother Mzansi and Big Brother Naija in the diaspora are not left out as Showmax will stream the show in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and about 50 other countries.
