There is nothing as exciting as seeing our fave celebrities grace the red carpet like the kings and queens that they are. From flowing gowns to sharp and crisp suits that some of us only see in our dreams. 

The list that follows shows a list of celebrities who have time and time again wowed us with their choice in red carpet looks that are still unforgettable. 

Mohale Motaung

There is no denying that this media personality has a masterclass in fashion. There is never a time when Mohale has had a wardrobe malfunction and we just love to see it. 

One look at his Instagram is enough to let you know that the Opulence radio presenter knows what clothes look good on him as well as how to dress his stunner body. 

It is no wonder that his friends and fellow industry mates are always inviting him to his events because when Mohale shows up, he will most definitely turn heads with his awesome looks. Well done!

Nomzamo Mbatha

No way was Zamo going to miss out on this list. At least not with the way she has been serving us nothing but sauce with her well coordinated looks and style. 

Zamo is the perfect personification of beauty and brains and we are here for it. My personal favorite red carpet look from Zamo is this particular flowing yellow gown that has her looking like a queen. 

And can we also talk about her smile? No doubt this look was never going to be complete without it and we cannot wait to see how she will be stealing our hearts once again this year. 

Khanyi Mbau

Next up on the list is Khanyi who is well known and loved for living it soft. Like many other celebrities, it is uncountable the number of times Khanyi has set the internet ablaze with her simple yet elegant wardrobe. 

Take the other day for example when Showmax was launching her famous telenovela series, The Wife Season 2. As you can imagine, many fans could not wait to meet their favorite actress and she didn’t disappoint. 

Khanyi graced the red carpet in a blue suit and matching orange bathu sneakers and her hair was just out of this world. Talk about being drop dead gorgeous! Well done queen!

Rich Mnisi

Oh come on, did you really think Mnisi was going to be on this list? Let’s face it, this gorgeous man has never let us down when it comes to his style. 

Take his own birthday for example? He was looking like a snack from head to toe making him such a sight for sore eyes. And even looking at his various subsequent events, some of us are already tempted to just have a sneak peek at his wardrobe! 

For him to even be dressing his fellow industry mates is proof enough that Mnisi will always remain a fashion icon and we are here for it.


We cannot move on without mentioning Somgaga who, as you already know, is the King of the runway. What makes it even better is knowing that every look Somizi has debuted whether on the red carpet or while on the grind are all from local designers here in Mzansi. 

And while his taste in fashion can sometimes come off as crazy, we have to agree that there has not been a day when he disappointed us. Whether he is in heels, a wig, a cape, whatever it is, Somizi can rock it like it was made for him and him only. 
We cannot wait for his next red carpet event!

Pearl Thusi

We tried to keep her off the list but the evidence is just too overwhelming. The Queen Of Sono star has always left our timelines on fire with her beautiful and yet very elegant red carpet looks. 

Remember that one time she was in Lagos for a hosting gig, boy did she turn heads with her choice of outfits. It was actually during that same time that tweeps could not recognize her, saying that she had been cloned. 

Yes, she was looking that good. Keep shining queen!

Any favorites from the list?
