Meet 28-year-old Charisma Hanekam, Joyous Celebration singer and minister. We snuck a peak into this Belhar-born success story, who looks as good on a pulpit as she does on stage. Here’s why…
Describe your personal style.
My style is feminine elegance, with a classy, chic look.
What’s your Number one tip for on-trend style?
I believe in colour coordinating, and dressing according to your body type.
What’s the funniest, quirkiest thing you’ve ever worn?
That would be sneakers with a dress…
Do you have an item in the back of your wardrobe that you’ll never wear?
No, I normally give clothes I don't wear anymore to charity.
Heels or flip-flops?
Heels when I'm on stage, but flip-flops when I'm relaxed. I'm a Capetonian girl… lol. We like our sneakers you know!
What is your most treasured fashion item?
It definitely has to be my little black number. I mean my black body-fit dress. I will never get rid of that dress, even if it no longer fits.
Style vs. sense of humour: Which quality do you love most in a guy?
I must say I like a guy who has style, but a guy with a sense of humour is much more attractive.
What are your first-date wardrobe staples? Which items make a fantastic first impression?
You must never overdress or underdress…hee hee... I will prefer a nice little black dress with good heels, or if it's a little chilly, a good pair of jeans and a sequins top. The most important thing is to be comfortable and to enjoy it all.
What's your go-to conversation subject starter?
You look older than what I imagined…
