Bonang Matheba is the personification of “heavy hitter” when it comes to style. Known for her edgy looks, creative and individualistic style, the South African multi–award winning media personality and Global Citizen ambassador has laid a strong foundation for herself as one of Africa’s most sought after style icons. Bonang Matheba Bottega Veneta.
Matheba is known to always make a stunning appearance every time she shows up: be it on the red carpet, running errands or hanging out with friends. She prefers feminine silhouettes and well-detailed dresses, and also has an irresistible passion for modernized styles, including high-slit dresses that usually separates her from the crowd. And when it comes to posing for the cameras, the Revlon International brand ambassador is a pro. She effortlessly makes every camera shot and outfit resemble a photoshoot from a high fashion magazine. It is almost impossible not to stan this style star.
In her latest postcard from New York City (her reported new residence), the House of BNG founder channels her inner Carrie Bradshaw (famous style icon character from Sex and the City played by Sarah Jessica Parker) in a chic beige dress from Bottega Veneta’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection. The outfit is courtesy of her stylist, Harrison Thomas Crite, also known as H Diddy. The dress retails for over $3,000. You can cop inspired versions at more affordable prices below.
Bonang explored understated luxury in this natural shade halterneck midi dress that boasts a corset-style top which fastens with a front zip and falls into a delicately pannier-inspired A-line skirt. The contrast of casual and refined elements in this dress is what makes it go so well with the purple Bottega Veneta mini knotted tote she paired with it. She complemented the ensemble with a Bottega Veneta The Line wraparound leather sandals, a pair of black sunglasses, and varying shades of chunky brown bangles. A fashionable look in word and in deed.
Of all the amazing pieces that make up this Rave-worthy look, it is the well detailed halter neck dress that we can’t get our eyes off of. The dress can also be purchased here.
