Bonang Matheba is the queen of South African TV and fashion. She’s won multiple awards, graced magazine covers and stolen the hearts of her Instagram followers for her effortless style…
Queen B always looks amazing, and we think we’ve cracked the code to her fashion formula.
We break down Bonang’s style essentials and show you where can get them (on a budget, of course):
All white everything
Bonang loves to stand out and dazzle in white. The key to turning heads in white is to go completely over the top – you need a white top, white pants, white jewellery, white shoes, and of course, a white bag. Here are two of our favourite white shirts to start you off.

Queen B* is always looks sexy and sharp in this wardrobe staple – skinny jeans. Take a leaf out of her fashion book and pair your denims with a shirt in a bold colour, or go for double denim with a chambray top. If you really want to look like Bonang though, it’s non-negotiable to wear your jeans with sky-high heels.
Lady in red
Bonang is well known for loving bold, statement colours, especially red. Everytime she steps out in red, she cements her status as a style icon.
Bonang knows that a great all in one is always a style hit. Find a headturning jumpsuit that you love, add a fab pair of heels, and you’re well on your way to stealing Bonang’s style.
The GJC influence
Bonang and Gert Johan Coetzee are a match made in heaven. His designs helped her become the stylish star that we all love today. Now, most of us don’t have the budget to phone Gert and order a custom-made gown, but luckily he does have ready-to-wear options out there for super special occasions.
Accessorize like the queen
Bonang’s favourite accessories? Fabulous head gear and fashion forward shades.
Berets have made a huge comeback and Bonang has been all over her instagram rocking them and looking great. The queen also never fails to match her looks with a perfect pair of shades. And don’t forget a glam pair of earrings.
So heels have come up a lot, and that’s because you’d swear Bonang was born in high heels. She finishes off every look with a stunning pair, but her favourites have to be her sexy, go-with-everything knee-high boots or pointy-toed courts (preferably in an eye-catching colour).
