As Thuso Mbedu prepares to dazzle at the Emmy Awards we're also quite excited to see what her outfit will look like.

Thuso has been left in the capable hands of South African designer - Gert-Johan-Coetzee. 

 We had a sigh of relief when we learned that he was the one to design her red carpet dress, after-all Gert did an amazing job at designing Minnie's wedding gown.

Although the dress will not be shown until Thuso graces Emmy's red carpet, The Star has confirmed that Thuso will be wearing a sea moss-blue dress.

"The show-stopper is a boob tube gown with extensive ruffle designs on the skirt and a jeweled waist belt to accentuate Mbedu's small waist," Coetzee told The Star.

So if you have a great imagination, you can only imagine how gorgeous Thuso will be looking on Monday, when the Emmy Awards take place.


Gert also told The Star newspaper that he was looking for an over-the-top look for the day

"Whenever South Africans do international events, we need them to show what we're made off, we need to shut things down completely. I want her to go there and close down that red carpet and really stand out like no South African has stood out before." 

If Thuso can shut it down just like how Nandi did at the 2016 BET Awards then her international debut will get off at a great start!


Thuso is said to be ecstatic about her dress and absolutely loves it. The Emmy nominee will also be dawning a pair of pink sapphire earrings with a diamond square design. She admitted to the publication that she pierced her ears a few days ago just to wear the earrings given to her.

Thuso has hardly disappointed us at any local red carpet events so we have no doubt that the international media will have their camera lenses fixated on her at the Emmy Awards.
