In Her Shoes: Khanyi Mbau

Famous for being famous, TV and radio personality Khanyi Mbau is never very far from controversy – but she sure makes it work in her favour! What we love about Ms Mbau – her feisty spirit and her sassy shoes, which are as colourful as her personality. Here, we dip into her Instagram for some serious shoespiration…

Skinny Jeans and Combat Boots

When we think of Khanyi Mbau’s shoes, we think of skyscraper heels, but here she shows us how to rock the laid-back look in a pair of boots with skinnies. But this is Khanyi, so there must be a dash of glam – and she does it with a luxe velvet jacket. Love!

See our blissful boots

Peep-toe Heels

Now this is more like the Khanyi we know and love…On her way to an awards ceremony and totally killing it in a black evening dress and vintage-inspired peep-toe heels. Got a special occasion coming up? Recreate Khanyi’s Hollywood look with a black cocktail dress and a pair of hot heels.

Aware! ……… call me Metanoia #💡

Fabulous Furry Boots

Demonstrating her diversity, here’s Khanyi the mom! Spending quality time with her lovely daughter, she’s the ultimate yummy mummy. An easy look for the moms out there to follow – all it takes is a pretty sweater, a pair of skinny jeans, a stylish pair of furry boots, and a bright smile…

Mom Monday… #MOM

Athleisure Shoes

Taking the athleisure trend to the max in an eye-catching pink number – and only she could get away with it! You might not have a personality big enough to fill Khanyi’s shoes, but you, too, can do athleisure – team a simple black hoodie and leggings with a colourful pair of athleisure shoes, and you’ve got your own version of Khanyi’s popping pink look!

Gold Boots

Another day, another different look! Khanyi, presenting SABC 2’s The Scoop – and slaying in a red bodycon dress with gold boots. Don’t feel bold enough to pull this off? Keep the striking red and gold combo, but tone it down by wearing a knee length red shift dress and gold sandals. We still say ‘bling’!

Don’t forget!!!! The Scoop is in tonight at 9pm only @sabc3 #thestageisyours also follow @thescoopafrica #💡

Knee-High Boots

Last, but by no means least, Khanyi owns it in this velvet royal blue ensemble. While many of us don’t have occasion to wear such a lavish outfit, we can adapt it to our own (less extravagant) lifestyles – think a fitted velvet blazer over a shift dress or pencil skirt, with a pair of long boots. #Winning!

Dundee you have been kind… 😘 📸: @white_media_africa_tv
