Shona and his tattoos

A NEW baby is born. And the parents are none other than GBC’s Mike Klinck and South Africa’s 12 year old free to air private owned e-tv founded by Marcel Golding. The new bundle of joy is e-Botswana. The new red, bold and in your face private Television station was launched last week Thursday at the GICC. And it was the special appearance by the e-tv soapies’ stars that made the night all very special. The Fashionista was especially the favoured one, when on Friday night, she got to enjoy an intimate dinner with Rhythm City’s Gail October (played by Pam Andrews), Tshidi Lodwaba (played by Nokuthula Ledwaba), Mamokete Khuse (played by Gabisile Chiume) and Scandal’s Alex (played by our own home boy Shona Ferguson), Shakira (played by


Dawn Matthews, and Mangi (played by K Modupe). Other than enjoying the laid back and fun company of the six soapies’ stars over great food and good wine, I was captured by star’s personal style. Pam Andrews matched her wild and spunky personality with a mini outfi t, and this season’s must have, three quarter boots and a crazy hair. The cool hip-hop dad with tattoos, Shona Ferguson, rocked a branded short sleeved t-shirt that showed off his graphically covered left arm, while he generously shared with the table what each tattoo represented. Dawn on the other hand let her calm and mature nature show through a casual yet feminine outfi t. The petite yet confi dent K Modupe had us cracking up with his naughty humour, and still kept his relaxed Kasi boy look of three quarter cargo pants and an eye catching write up on t-shirt. Wow! What a bunch of fun people. Check them out in their elements on e-Botswana.

I just love the soul-sister look. The long skirts, fl at shoes and big bangles around my wrist. I just need your advice on how to properly do the style in terms of colour combinations and the works.

Hey gal,
The soul sister look is very sensitive, in that there’s a very thin line between doing it right and coming out looking like one is trying too hard, and thus most of the time looks over played and tired. A mix between that Afrocentric look and modern trends here and there could break the harsh soul sister representation. Regarding the colour combinations, these may be infl uenced by your body size- because if you are a petite woman you can get away with all colours, though a fullfi gure may require darker colours to avoid looking like an over blown balloon. And please, do not wear all the colours in the world at once, as this may cause a crazy clash that a lot of the soul sisters carry around, try vice versa- if the bangles are bright, wear darker colours.
