Success was on the cards, that much was evident, but how much and for how long?
The world was a very different place back then and there boundaries for Black people, but Black women especially, were plentiful and strict.
In 1994, South Africa gained it's independence, and Bassie Kumalo won the Miss South Africa crown.
From there on Basetsana grew into a jack of all trades and a master of all too, with an expansion into producing Top Billing under Tswelopele Productions, sitting on powerful executive boards, owning a clothing range, eyewear, cosmetic line as well as interests in property and mining. - Zalebs
As far as being #LifeGoals goes, she's definitely worth all the accolades and more. But one thing we'd like to give her all the props for today is her fashion sense. Bassie has impeccable style and whether she's dressed down or all the way up, she leaves us all in awe.
Festive season is around the corner and that means our moms, aunties and wives are gonna be attending all the weddings. We've taken it upon ourselves then, to share a few outfits Bassie looked absolutely stunning in. Take them to your tailors and let's pass this beautiful energy on. Pay it forward.
Coco Chanel comes to mind.
We're cowering at the sheer elegance.
You know we HAD to add the post courtroom looks. This is what Victory looks like.
A Beauty Queen.
