Fashion Bombshell of the Day
Fashion Bombshell of the Day: Gugu from South Africa
By Claire

Take a look at today’s Bombshell, Gugu from South Africa:

The New York resident sent in an e-mail titled, “Not Another Plus Size Fashion Bombshell,” saying, “The plus in my size serves as an added blessing.”

“… Learning to understand my body and accepting it for what it is has been a long fascinating journey.”

“… I have thoroughly enjoyed the road to discovering myself.”

… There’s always an element of surprise there, especially as I am becoming a woman my future kids will meet one day.”

“Since I constantly evolve so does my taste which influences my personal style.”

“I do not know how to categorize myself stylistically, however the one thing I have tried to maintain over the years is good presentation.

” I thrive to look polished.”

I never thought I’d write to be featured because I have never thought of myself as a style connoisseur of any sort. However, since my debut on Instagram @StyleGoneGugu a few weeks ago, I have been receiving a ton of encouragement from friends and peers as well as my followers. Perhaps one day soon, when I have an actual blog, I can [resubmit].”

Oh Gugu, I’m gaga over your style! Your looks are chic, scintillating, and super flattering! Can’t wait to follow you on Instragram @StyleGoneGugu. Work it, mama!

    I just about love every outfit on her; classy, sophisticate, chic, and sexy.

    My only issue…are these her clothes or did the photog add their signature to advertise their business?

    If she can be credited for her style, then she gets a bomb status from me.

  2. Soul Touch says:

    Ignore my comment about the signature, I re-read her comments at turns out that’s her Instagram.

    Bombshell for me, no question.

  3. Sharri says:

    “the woman my future kids will meet one day” style is all about one’s inner perception of oneself, and girl your kids are going to meet one stunning woman.

  40. Destination Everywhere says:

    So lovely!
    Her skin looks like butter! What is your secret?

    On a totally unrelated note, in the photo with the pink skirt or dress she looks like she is going to BEAT A BITCH DOWN! That face will serve her well when dealing with her future children. Even I want to go and clean my room.
