The World According to Bonnie Mbuli

The World According to Bonnie Mbuli

Bold, beautiful and taking on the world

Bonnie Mbuli, a South African born and internationally renowned actress and presenter, lives life with a big heart and an even bigger smile. She’s elegant, exquisite and our style icon for the month.


We recently sat down with Afternoon Express presenter to see what goes down in her world.

Your style is not only timeless but also elegant and exudes confidence. What inspires your style on any given day?

I believe style is a way of communicating who you are to the world, it’s about creating an atmosphere for your personality to shine through. I’m a laid back person, but hard working and determined and my style communicates that. I love beautiful clothes and fabrics.

Your confidence is infectious and you’re often in the spotlight. How do you stay afloat bad media, hiccups and the ‘once in a blue moon’ bad hair day?

The public and media can be unforgiving and critical but its about staying true to yourself and being yourself no matter what people say, knowing that I am making authentic decisions in my life keeps me steady .

Your positive energy not only radiates through your personality but also through the way in which you carry yourself. What are the daily health regiments that you take in order to look good?

I’m a fitness fanatic and I believe in holistic health. I eat well, drink lots of water, get good sleep and fight to keep a positive outlook  in my heart and mind. I also never forget to laugh – laughter is great medicine.

You’ve acted in countless local and international films and television shows. If a movie were made about your life, who would you cast to play as you?

Wow! That would be incredible. I would cast Masasa Mbangeni or Nokuthula Ledwaba, they are both incredible actresses whose love for their craft is admirable.

Complete the sentence. Before I die, I would like to…

Before I die I would love to leave an unforgettable legacy.
