OPINION: Corruption’s Chokehold: Rebuilding South Africa’s Stolen Dreams

As we stand on the precipice of a daunting future, the United Democratic Movement (UDM) mourns the tragic collapse of the South African stat...

The fashion world can be a confusing and a reckless place, so sometimes it helps to turn to those who have fought all these battles before. This one person is eloquent enough to have produced amazing soundbites that offer words of enlightenment, point out the subtleties of style, or celebrate what we all love.

As many of you would say, she needs no introduction, calling her a fashion icon would least describe her, she has every young woman's closet, we've seen her style transform from Manhattan fantasy show to the great sensational top billing host, and everything in between. Love her style or loath it, Bonang will not be stopped from posting her great sense of style on Instagram.

This 'grown-up' mogul tried her hand on mixing prints with a plain denim shirt, slightly folded sleeves, red skinny pants, and a pair of leopard printed shoes, not to forget her feminine touch of  accessories. She always accessorizes her casual looks with a pair of well-suited shaped sunglasses, clearly showing her bubbly, fresh, great persona she has through color.

She still manages to fabulously mix diva corporate style, rocking a black little black dress (a must have, showing off her curves), a sparkling blazer with a black and gold clutch-bag and some gold bangles to complement the jacket. Well, she also shows how important it is to dress for your body, plus-size or slim person. I must say Queen B can surely work her body and most importantly knows how to insinuate it in every outfit.

A party animal she is, this outfit says it all, she's ready to hit the clubs, with a black fitted pair of leather shorts (once again, showing off her long beautiful legs); a white round-collar shirt, wrapped up the outfit with black and silver pooch and a great gold and silver neck piece. Well the outfit wouldn't be an outfit without a pair of black see-through stilettos.

An African Goddess she looks in this lovely long white dress, she's definitely dressed for the occasion, with this angelic look, she accessorized it with a cream colored clutch-bag with a touch of silver to compliment the neckline of the dress and of course the bangle, (we definitely learn to dress for the occasion, you don't want to get to any event "overdressed" or "under-dressed", important to get the theme right).

This is the one of my favorites, as I saved the best for last, look at this gorgeous bold-orange, open-back, pencil skirt dress, this is what we call "a show stopper"! Definitely an "IT" girl would wear that, showing off her back, you would swear she's naked but this beautiful dress compliments her skin tone, with her "warm-toned" body we learn that whatever you wear, it should compliment your body and this has nothing to do with your personality.

With the little we have gone through, I can say she proudly wears what she wants with the attitude of whatever she is wearing represents a symbol of her individuality and belief in personal freedom. Most of the garments she wears scream that clothes make a woman and naked people have little or no influence on society. 

She recently clinched an awesome deal with Revlon as the FACE of the brand!
