If like me you enjoyed the first season of Bridgerton then I’m sure you have seen season 2. I had a movie buddy for season 1, but he abandoned me on this one.
My husband watched season 1 with me because I always watch his gory tv shows with him – one good turn deserves another right!
He however refused to watch the latest one with me. As I was finishing the second episode, I looked up at him and told him he would not have lasted through episode 1.
Season 2 was underwhelming 🤦🏾♀️. I kept waiting for the thrill I got from watching season 1 but it was nowhere to be found!
I actually like Anthony’s character and I thought he would be able to carry the ‘most eligible bachelor’ role, but it wasn’t to be. He lacked the Je ne sais quoi that the duke had. The entire story was just all over the place!
A Bridgerton Affair
Anyway, that’s not what this post is about. Over the weekend, Netflix South Africa organised a ball to mark the season 2 arrival. The dress code was regency with a touch of African. Let’s see how our fashionistas fared…
Zozobini Tunzi was the host of the night, and did she look the path or what! She nailed the look.
Toke is that girl that always nails every dress code, she did it again here. She almost stole the night from the queen in this Gert jothan Coetzee piece.
Khanyi Mbau Matenoia’s look is actually one of my best look of the night. She stayed true to the Regency with a touch of African dress code with her beautiful headpiece. Stunning look.
If you are a true Bridgerton fan, the moment you see Kate Henshaw you know who inspired her look. This is a lovely African take on a character loved by many – the formidable Lady Danbury. No better person to take on this look than our talented Kate Henshaw. Gorgeous look.
Isn’t she lovely? Another African royalty look pulled out beautifully by Nambitha Ben-Mazwi. She is wearing Imprint Za.
The picture doesn’t do Sharon’s dress any justice. Though I’m not a fan of trains and tails, I think she looked gorgeous in this Sheye Oladejo piece.
Bimbo Ademoye looks like a graceful yellow bird in this picture. Even though it’s not really giving any African Vibe, it’s a great look.
Just look at her, Tumi Powerhouse looks elegant in her House of Nani outfit.
Connie Ferguson looks like an African queen in this lovely outfit by Mantsho.
Rahama Sadau is all peachy in her ball dress. I’m not really feeling this one though, wish she had done something more African. Her make-up is really beautiful.
Thando Thabooty in House of Sass. I like the skirt and the hat.
Michelle Mosalakae in Nedim Designs
Three’s a Charm
The three kings of Orient were present 😁.
And the three musketeers too 😄
It’s raining Men
A suave well-planned look. I like the subtle African homage. brilliant look on Donovan Goliath
This guy means serious business. Nothing African at all here, but we applaud the effort.
I like Deyemi, but this outfit, Nah. It looked rough. When going for a ball you should look like a proper gentleman, this looks like he just took it out from a chest in the attic.
I like this look, a very modern ballroom look.
Nice simple African Regal look from my favourite Kunle Remi. Please tell him to go and propose to Bimbo Ademoye cause I’m planning the wedding already!
So, which look was your favourite? Please share in the comment section.
