Another local beauty could become an angel and walk down the Victoria’s Secret ramp.
That is if the picture and text posted on social networks by Durban model, actress and presenter Minenhle “Minnie” Dlamini are to be believed.
Dlamini, 24, who is dating Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, set social networks ablaze this week when she posted a picture of herself in a Victoria Secret’s lingerie set.
“Nothing makes me feel sexier than @victoriassecretlingerie #Something’sCooking”, was the message that accompanied the racy picture on her Instagram and Twitter page.
She added a winking emoticon at the end of the tweet.
On her Facebook page she posted: “Victoria Secret!!! Oops think that was meant to be a secret sshhh.”
When asked by her fans if this meant she would have her own wings as a Victoria’s Secret angel, Dlamini, an SABC sports presenter, would only say: “There’s more. The fun I had on that set#MissMinnie does it #GlobalStyle.”
Her spokeswoman, Pumza Nohashe, said she would release a statement in due course.
Dlamini could follow in the footsteps of local international supermodel Candice Swanepoel who has made a name for herself as one of the leading models for the lingerie range.
Most people on social networks gushed at Dlamini’s “flawless” body, describing her as a goddess and an inspiration for people to exercise.
@ThabzaTman said: “There is no man out there who wouldn’t wana be Itumeleng Khune… lord has blessed that man with a goddess of a gf… #minniedlamini.
Others put a different spin on Dlamini’s attire.
“Minnie Dlamini looks like 20 years of democracy,” said Hatshepsut.
@Sonix_McZeus said: “I’ll vote for whichever party @MinnieDlamini votes for!”
Bathembu said: “Minnie’s trending. Thanks Ms Dlamini, its a very welcome respite from the political gibberish.”
Dlamini, who was admitted to hospital with a chest infection, made national headlines three years ago when she won a television presenter search competition.
She went on to secure several acting roles in some of the country’s top TV shows, including Generations, The Wild and Rockville.
