Samantha Heldsinger is a member of pop group, BlackByrd that is taking South Africa by storm. As a qualified actress and yoga instructor, Heldsinger’s not only beautiful but her sense of down-to earth style is as refreshing as the music she sings each time BlackByrd takes flight. LEGiT dropped in to find out a little more about what goes into making her the stunner she is.
Describe your personal style.
I love fashion and how we use it to express ourselves. In my heart, I’m a blue denims kind of girl.
What’s your number one tip for on-trend style?
Being comfortable in your clothing is my number one rule.
Do you have a fashion tip for us?
I love, love, love colour and also a bit of bling! My fashion tip is: use the latest trends as a guide only. Understand what the trends are and then make it your own. I absolutely love dressing up for events!
What’s your number one summer 2012 essential?
Wedge heels or stilettos?
What is your most treasured fashion item?
This is a hard one! I'd have to say my good and faithful blue denims.
Do you have an item in the back of your wardrobe that you’ll never wear?
I've got loads of outfits at the back of my wardrobe that I don't wear. I need to do some spring-cleaning.
What are your first-date wardrobe staples? Which items make a fantastic first impression?
For first dates, make sure you don't wear too much make-up. Keep it simple and light. If the weather is great, wear a soft summer dress, or a casual T-shirt and denims. If it’s cold, cancel that date and wait for the sun to come out!
