I went through all 1467 of Nomzamo Mbatha's Instagram photos - and I learned that she's basically a superhero


1. For the love of a cape

Nomzamo not only wears capes, she wears them always. I think she might even wear them underneath cape-less outfits like Clark Kent right before he strips off his reporter workwear and turns in Superman.

Even the coat cape...

I'm phoning her mom later to ask if she was, in fact, christened in a white baby cape. Cause I'm certain the answer to this would be a resounding, "Obviously."

3. She also loves a bit of a sleeve

Nomzamo loves bold looks, and is never shy to go extra. 

She tries everything from bold prints, to all-out traditional looks, there's just no stopping this experimental babe...

4. She should wear more suits (but those big, voluminous dresses are probably better at concealing her capes)

Like, she must have a cape on underneath this...

She wore this suit to Bonang's 30th birthday. (Also known as upstaging the queen)

5. She does the Chrissy Teigen/Angelina’s right leg thing so well

I've never noted her affinity for the thigh high slit. But she has, continues to, and will again slay it all the way...
