Last night saw the official premiere of Queen Sono – Netflix’s first-ever African-original series, starring our fierce cover girl, Pearl Thusi. The series focuses on the life of a highly-trained South African spy, as well as the struggles she faces in her personal life. We think Queen Sono is bound to be a hit, and we are READY for it!
It was absolutely *no* surprise that the queen herself, Pearl Thusi, looked incredible whilst walking down the red carpet at her own premiere. She definitely stole the whole show, and absolutely *no one* was mad about it. The premiere of this highly-anticipated Netflix series saw many familiar faces, and all looking GEWD. Sho Madjozi, Nadia Nakai, Kim Jayde and co. dressed up and showed up, and we’re going to give the viewers at home a little run through the evening’s best red-carpet looks.
The most fierce red-carpet looks at the Queen Sono Netflix premiere
Let’s start off with the woman of the hour, our girl, Pearl Thusi. She looked a million bucks in a gorgeous silver gown with a lotta leg and matching, strappy silver heels. Long live our QUEEN!
Sho Madjozi attended the event with the coolest and most colourful hairdo, and provided us with some serious hair inspo. She rocked this season’s hottest trend, puff sleeves, in the form of a super-cute mini dress, and accessorised with retro sunnies.
Miss Kim Jayde did not come to play. She looked elegant but fresh in a lime satin mini dress with a black lace bustier underneath. But her hair and make up though! Peep her Insta story to check out her entire look because sis slayed from head to toe.
Moozlie did not disappoint AT ALL. Her face was beat, her accessories were on point (we spy her wearing two of 2020’s biggest accessories trends!), and now we have total bag envy. It’s clear the suits are a big go-to on the red-carpet at the mo and Moozlie looked ah-mazing in her crisp white suit and simple Louis Vuitton touches (cute belt and bag).
Excuse us while we gush over Nadia’s outfit. Like, has she ever looked *that* good? HER BODY! We are shook. Her emerald green dress saw a great choice of colour and props for the fringe detailing. Overall, a fire look.
Jessica looked striking in a fitted blazer dress. This yellow hue is such a complimentary colour on her, and she just popped on the red carpet. Her nails we also DID, and her natural make up was nothing short of gorgeous.
Nambitha Ben-Mazwi looked classy and chic in a baby-blue gown with black and white print detailing. She *WORKED* that red carpet.
Aisha looked elegant in a gorgeous black gown with gold sparkly detail that fit her like a glove.
Wow! Kate looks EXTRA on the red carpet. We love that she pushed the boundaries and totally pulled it off.
Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa
We. are. shook! Enhle came and totally shattered all expectations. Her pearl-encrusted outfit was a total look and the unique silhouettes is something different, and it just WORKS.
Are we allowed to hype up our own COSMO queens? Digital Director, Jaime Waddington, and Social Media Manager, Ashleigh Engel, repped at the Queen Sono premier looking très fashun in printed looks — bold graphic prints for Jaime and chic scarf prints for Ash.
It’s safe to say that everyone who attended the premiere worked overtime in the style dep. And, exciting news — we can now binge watch Queen Sono on Netflix! We have no doubt that this African-original series will do amazing things for the continent, and we commend Pearl Thusi and the entire cast. YOU DID THAT!
We’ll just leave you with this beyond-adorable pic of Pearl and her two daughters. Can you even.
