[FAB FLICKS] Bonang Takes New York Via Elle Magazine South Africa!!

 I thought that I should share some fun pictures that I found on the ELLE Magazine South Africa website.

Bonang has done it again; she is the cover star of the October issue of ELLE SA.

The ELLE website has posted some questions, but I will post some for you to read on and hopefully get the magazine to find out more about Miss B*.

Highlight of the shoot?

Being at the opening of the Louis Vuitton Store on 5th Avenue in New York and being spotted by the street fashion bloggers of New York magazine. That was quite cool. They loved my outfit that day – I was wearing clothing from the Winter 2011 Collection of Louis Vuitton

Aha moments?

It was in New York and with Louis Vuitton! That alone was phenomenal. It’s not every day that you go on a shoot and mingle with the CEO of a billion dollar luxury goods company. It is the highlight of my career so far – no doubt about it.

Favourite shot and why?

The one where I’m wearing the blue Louis Vuitton coat and the Louis Vuitton scarf as a turban. That look was very African inspired and very far from the typical ‘Bonang’ look

What’s on your radar?

My new fragrance, my new TV show, my handbag line (which will be available at a major retailer soon) and my second TV production.

What did you want to be growing up?

A pre-school teacher or neurosurgeon

Which local designers are you loving and why?

Gert Johan Coetzee, naturally. I’ve been the face of his couture line for over three years now and I fall in love with the brand more and more each time. I also LOVE Avant, their clothes are very modern, very chic and very Victoria Beckham.

Best for a girl’s night out?

The VIP Room at the Michaelangelo Towers.

Who do you love following on Twitter and why?

Rachel Zoe because I love her, Sbosh Mafu because she is hilarious, Sentletse because he is so wise and ‘The Illuminati’ because they dish out some great advice.

How fab is she?!

We here at love Bonang Matheba!!
