She also featured in popular TV series Sakabaka and The Snail. Mutaganzwa spoke to Society Magazine’s Donah Mbabazi about random shopping and dressing for a date.
Sexy or elegant, what would you prefer?
I definitely prefer elegance, I don’t like being sexy. If you see some of my photos then you will notice what I mean. One’s physical appearance speaks volumes, so it’s better to dress decently.
How often do you shop for clothes?
I never plan for shopping. Every time I see something I like, I go for it. And every time I have an occasion I go shopping. I may even do shopping like ten times a month or even go a whole month without shopping. But as long as I see something I really like, I buy it. When I travel, I try to come back with something.
What is your favourite shopping item?
I don’t have a specific item because I wear almost everything, but I love shopping for skirts mostly because with them, I get to be elegant. I also love jeans and dresses but like I said, I never plan for shopping so I buy them randomly depending on what I need and the occasion.
Describe the most expensive item that you own
It’s hard to trace but the most expensive items that I own are mostly dresses, shoes and perfumes. Some of these I buy from Europe, USA or Dubai.
What colours look best on you?
It’s black mostly. I wear black whether I’m going to work, parties or weddings. I’m light skinned but I don’t think it’s the reason I like black clothes, most girls with a light complexion prefer red or pink but I think I like the colour because it just looks great on me. When you like something you definitely feel good when wearing it.
What fabrics do you think are beautiful?
I like cotton, silk and velvet; I think their qualities are very good. I also like the denim.
What would you wear on a date?
I love tight pants and blazers. I also like well fitted maxi skirts or simple dresses which aren’t skimpy. I simply top that up with a purse.
What’s your scent?
Yves Saint Laurent Cinema; it’s a nice fragrant.
Any style tips?
A well fitted skirt and a decent top with high heels is an outfit every trendy woman should try. It is important to know what looks good on you; don’t wear a skirt if you’re not comfortable in it. Know yourself; you may like something but you should know what looks good on you and work around that.
