This is not your conventional outfit of the day feature. Instead of having a South African celebrity draped in authentically African attire, we cross borders and showcase an American beauty who recently rocked Zulu accessories on a movie shoot.
Yes, Zkhiphani is all about Mzansi love and pushing Mzansi content, but when one of our pieces from the soil make it abroad, no doubt we gonna validate and celebrate the love.
Love & Basketball actress, Sanaa Lathan recently made waves in America and the internet alike when she was seen rocking these Zulu and Masai-inspired accessories as part of America’s Black History Month which coincided with a shoot for her upcoming movie.
The neck piece was so gorgeous on Sanaa that Africa received its due appreciated by all who came into contact with the bomb images that showcased the accessories.
While we can’t see the rest of the outfit, we love the acknowledgement and use of our pieces on the star, which made her look like a gorgeous Zulu princess. Onward and upwards for South Africa fam. Or kanjani?
