South Africans with an eye for fashion knew ANC MP Dikeledi Mahlangu’s dress looked familiar the minute they spotted it. This is because it was the same dress worn by media personality Nomzamo Mbatha at the 2017 BET Awards.
She had told ZAcelebs that the dress was a representation of her and she dubbed it her “Zulu lover letter.”
The beaded gown by Rich Factory x Brand Three Sixty was copied by Dikeledi Mahlangu at the SONA 2019 last night.
The plunging neckline was altered slightly to be less revealing, and sleeves were added to make it more age appropriate. But the similarity was still uncanny.
