Television presenter Ayanda Thabethe went all out for her Halloween look which got the approval of Kim Kardashian West.

Ayanda teamed up with local fashion brand, CINNEL, to make similar dresses to those Kim and her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, wore for the launch of their KKW Fragrance collaboration.

The star dressed as all three Kardashian sisters and recreated an interview the sisters did for the fragrance.

Kim praised Ayanda’s efforts after spotting the posts on social media. “OMG THE BEST!” the truth star tweeted.

The 40-year-old also shared Ayanda’s posts on her Instagram story. Ayanda slid into Kim’s DMs to thank her for all the love.

Mrs West replied: “You look amazing.”

“I take Halloween simply as each day or a chance to celebrate our artistry as South Africans from hair, garments, makeup, photography, our beauty etc. we are TRULY world-class.

“This was fun and I’m obviously buzzing from the very fact that it had been appreciated by @kimkardashian herself, TRULY made my day and jogged my memory that anything is feasible for a willing heart”, said Ayanda in her Instagram post.


Ayanda also said she would cherish the love she received from Kim forever.

It was not just Kim who approved Ayanda’s work.

Local celebrities like Minnie Dlamini-Jones, dressmaker Rich Mnisi, rapper Boity and luxury influencer Refilwe Mabote all praised Ayanda.

“I’m screaming” commented Rich.

Minnie said: “Done with us” while Kefilwe left congratulatory hand emojis and much of “yes’s”

Ayanda’s 2019 Halloween look was also a serious hit. The star recreated one among Beyoncé’s iconic looks from last year when she attended the Lion King premiere in London, wearing a gold crushed silk gown.
