Oprah Attends The Global Citizen Festival SA In Gert-Johan Coetzee
Popular South African designer, Gert-Johan Coetzee once again had the chance to shine by designing an outfit for the iconic Oprah Winfrey. The star, who recently dressed Beyonce‘s father, Mathew Knowles when he was in South Africa, had the opportunity to create a golden yellow silk kaftan for the American media mogul.
The flowing dress was worn by Oprah during her appearance at the Global Citizen Festival on Sunday, 2 Decemeber which also brought a stellar cast of global A-list performers to Johannesburg, South Africa, to celebrate what would have been Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday.
The beloved talk-show host had visited Coetzee’s studio earlier in the week, and had charmed the designer and his team with her humour, grace and kindness. The kaftan was constructed from draped silk in a rich yellow, with a waistband decorated in traditional African hand-beading and Swarovski crystals.
