Style crush: Mmabatho Montsho

Today we're loving actress and film-maker Mmabatho Montsho's laid-back, vintage and chic style

There’s no denying that Mmabatho’s style and energy is invigorating – she’s absolutely gorgeous and although we don’t know her personally, we certainly wouldn’t mind being BFFs with her (girl crush, much?)!

Mmabatho’s style is a diverse – she rocks old school/vintage, printed and classy items. We love that whatever she wears is a reflection of her. Also, her style makes her stand out from the rest.

We also love how she constantly speaks positivity, love and light into our lives through her posts. The natural hair conversation is an ongoing one and for years, the naturalista inspired us all to join the community with her gorgeous hair.

However, surprised us all on Valentine’s Day last year when she posted a picture of her new look on Instagram with the caption: “My wish this Valentine’s Day is that all kinds of love & consensual unions be respected & celebrated. I also wish courage upon those in unloving situations to free themselves. Happy Valentine’s Day friends.”

The producer and mastermind behind 10-part web series Women on Sex said she believed it was important for women in South Africa to speak openly about their sexuality, so that we can conscientise each other.

“We live in an anti-woman, sexually oppressive society and that has to change. When we talk openly about sex, we begin to re-evaluate our relationship with it and, as women, we begin to own it. It’s not only that we should speak about it, but it’s also how we speak about it that makes all the difference.

“When black women are given a platform to talk about sex, it’s usually as helpless, injured beings. We need to challenge that tradition and be on record talking about sex, not as victims, but as smart, articulate people who critique and have a position on the topic.”
