As some of SA’s brightest stars came out to twinkle at her 40th birthday bash last week, Mafikizolo hitmaker and designer Nhlanhla Nciza shone just a little brighter.

Standing out against an all-white-themed party, Nciza looked ravishing in a pink princess dress by NN Vintage, her own label.

The sheer bodice, with a glittery finish, clinched at the waist with a gold belt and the dress then flared into a dramatic skirt with embroidery detail.

The Queen of Afro chic clearly staked her claim to the title, and showed once again why she is one of our favourite celebs who never disappoints on the fashion front.

In celebration of Nciza’s milestone birthday, we feature some of her hottest looks:
