The fashion design reality show that kick started many a career, including that of Christian Siriano, is coming to South Africa! Mzansi Magic and Ndalo Pictures in association with 4th STREET Wines and production partners Rapid Blue, are proud to announce that a local version of Project Runway is about to grace South African television screens.

I recently attended the reveal event, where it was announced that the gorgeous, sassy and vibrant Lerato Kganyago will step into the role of the host for Project Runway South Africa.

In the weeks building up to this annoucement, like the layers of a Gert-Johan Coetzee couture gown, first the judges, then the mentor and now the host has finally been revealed.

Embrace Your Natural Hair at #ClicksCurls JHB

 

I recently had my hair highlighted, after researching and being inspired by Pinterest boards, featuring the luscious hombre locks of Jessica Alba. I really love her style, both her dress sense and her hair styles. With screen shots in hand, I headed off to my sister-in-law (@hairbyshafia) who is also my award winning hair stylist.

Here are the results, some subtle blonde highlights…

In the hot seat …
