Woman Crushing Wednesday – Nomzamo Mbatha

Hey Raven Fam. Another Wednesday is upon us and I hope you having an awesome week thus far. With the weekend only two days away, I really can’t for this week to end. That being said here’s some inspiration from our #WCW to keep us going (Drum Roll)…Nomzamo Mbatha!

Nomzamo Mbatha is a South African accountant, actress, activist, and television personality best known as one of the three finalists in the 2012 MTV Base search. She is also known for playing the role of Thandeka on IsiBaya.

Nomzamo is passionate about bringing change to the world and the people she comes across. With a rose named after her, she will not only inspire South Africans but the world as a whole.

Nomzamo Mbatha outfits are a living work of art. Every dress that she wears showcases her African beauty and leaves us speechless here at Raven. Here are some of the beautiful outfits she rocked thus far:

Nomzamo took fashion to the next level when she designed her astounding graduation dress that was not only beautiful but had a powerful statement behind the making.

The dress had the South African Depression & Anxiety Group’s toll free number printed on it. It also featured pictures of the people that she’s lost in her life. She also added the words ‘resilience, courage and overcome’ on the dress.

We love her creativity and fashion taste, we hope you love her too.

Enjoy your day further Fam!

Meghan’s Outfits From Her Royal Wedding

The Royal Wedding is still a trending topic this week and there are so many sweetest moments and most memorable details from the royal wedding that make it an endless replay.

Prince Harry and Meghan, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex honored the memory of Princess Diana. Starting with Meghan’s bouquet. Harry apparently hand-picked the flowers himself, including white forget-me-nots, his mother’s favorite flower.

“Something borrowed, something new and something blue”

This rhyme refers to the things a bride is supposed to wear on her wedding day to have a successful marriage.  It dates back to at least 19th century Lancastershire. It refers to few things a bride should wear on her wedding day. It is believed that a bride who wears those five things has the ingredients for a successful marriage in the years that follow.

Meghan had this in mind when she chose everything she wore on her Royal Wedding day.

To the details on Princess Meghan’s Wedding dress “Her something new”

Meghan’s Wedding dress was a head-turning beauty, so perfect for a royal bride. The gown was designed by Clare Waight Keller, an acclaimed British designer. The dress featured a beteau neckline and three quater sleeves; it was created out of a “double bonded silk cady” fabric. The dress had a beautiful 5 meter long veil which was created from silk tulle with a trim of hand embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza which represented the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition. She wore very simple white bridal heels to match her beautiful gown.

The tiara is formed as a flexible band of eleven sections, pierced with interlaced ovals and pavé set with large and small brilliant diamonds. Meghan styled the diamond tiara with a chic messy bridal updo, adding a beautiful touch of Royalty and elegance to her main look.
