South African media personality Bonang Matheba seemed to be a fan favourite when put up against two international celebrities in a “who wore it best” post by international fashion and entertainment website, Fashion Bomb Daily on Instagram on 21 July.

Fashion Bomb Daily posted American social media star Ariana Fletcher, known as Ari The Don, media personality Bonang Matheba and reality star EJ Johnson in the same Gucci outfit, to their Instagram account of 1.6 million followers. 

The Gucci top cost $1700 which equates to R 24 754,87 and the matching Gucci shorts cost $1300 which equates to R18 930,20 adding up to almost R44 000.

Fans took to the comments section to pick their best look and seemed to love how Bonang styled the outfit. 

Here is a closer look at the contenders. 


Aside from being a social media star, Ari The Don is also an entrepreneur who co-founded hair extensions company KYCHE Extensions according to The Citizen. Ari paired the outfit with a huge chain with her brother Kyle’s name on it. Kyle passed away when she was young and her Instagram handle @therealkylesister is a tribute to him. 

Ari wore her Gucci set differently to Bonang and EJ as she opted to show some skin in between. Here is her look. 


The South African born media personality relocated to New York towards the end of May this year and has been living her best life. In June, she was spotted in a R79 000 Bottega Venetta outfit as she spent the day out and about in the Big Apple. This time its her R44 000 Gucci outfit that’s turning heads.

Bonang paired her two chunky gold chains and a pair of gold strappy heels which she shows off in the video below.

Although many of the fans and followers of the fashion website didn’t really know who Bonang was they seemed to love the way she styled the outfit. Here’s what they had to say.

“Idk who Bonang is, but sis understood the assignment????,” wrote @queenofdiamondzz.

“Idk Bonang but she did that ????,” wrote @malikayasamin. 

“Ari makes it look cheap. I’m going with the girl in the middle,” wrote @adornmua.

“It’s the South African gyal for me, she’s well put together ????,” wrote @misfitnoire. 


Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star and son of American former professional basketball player, Magic Johnson, EJ Johnson paired his Gucci set with combat boots. Many people in the comments section thought his shorts were a little too tight though.
