Bonang Matheba or Rihanna? Who looks more beautiful in jeans? (Comment below)

Rihanna

Fenty, Rihanna of Barbados, singer, performer, fashion designer, and expert in personal finance; born 20 February 1988. Evan Rogers, an American composer, discovered Rihanna and encouraged her to make demo tapes in the United States. Born in Bridgetown, she spent her childhood in Saint Michael, Barbados. After signing with Def Jam in 2005, she quickly rose to prominence, releasing two albums that drew inspiration from Caribbean sounds and debuted in the top ten of the US Billboard 200 chart: Music of the Sun (2005) and A Girl Like Me (2006).


Since her rise to fame, the media has closely tracked Rihanna's musical and fashion choices. The ability to "alter looks swiftly and without almost lifting a finger" earned Rihanna the 2009 New York Magazine title of "cutout juvenile sovereign." Many critics criticized Rihanna for sounding too much like Beyoncé in the hours leading up to the release of her second studio album, A Girl Like Me (2006). In an interview with Look magazine, Rihanna remarked, "Beyoncé is a fantastic craftsman, and I feel valued to be referenced in a similar sentence with her, but we're changed performers with different techniques."


Over the course of her nearly 10-year career, "[Rihanna] has gone through one of the most spectacular style makeovers the world has ever seen," wrote Nico Amarca of Highsnobiety magazine. [Since her third collection was released, she has had multiple photo and wardrobe makeovers, trying out a number of different haircuts.] She went on to say that she "used to watch her [mother] get dressed" as a kid, and that this is where her enthusiasm and love of fashion got its start. When asked about putting together her own ensembles, she remarked, "Facing a challenge has become increasingly crucial... I'm generally on the chase of the most distinct outline or anything odd."


She said, "it's verifiably flattering, however occasionally awful," meaning that she acknowledged that her sexual image isn't particularly significant to her. She is considered to be one of the sexiest women of her generation. Rihanna is the first woman to ever appear on the covers of magazines including Maxim, FHM, Rolling Stone, and GQ's "Men of the Year" issue in December 2012.


Bonang Matheba

Bonang. Dorothy Matheba, born in South Africa on June 25th, 1987, is a well-known media personality, radio host, businesswoman, designer, model, and philanthropist. She has a distinctive, lovely voice and is renowned for her skill as an introducer, both of which she learned in her birthplace of Mahikeng, North West. The success she had as host of the SABC 1 music show LIVE propelled her to the top of the industry (presently Live Amp). She is also remarkable as the first black South African to be widely published.


Matheba's first clothing line, "Just B," was released in 2008 thanks to a collaboration with Legit. As a result of this collaboration with a London-based designer, the "Child Star" bag collection was born.

In 2014, Bonang partnered with Woolworths, a premier retailer in South Africa. Intimate apparel brand "Interruption By Bonang" debuted and is still doing strong as new collections are developed.


In 2018, Matheba and Superbalist released their collection of "BONANG by Bonang Matheba" T-shirts. Popular Bonang catchphrases including "Mo'ghel," "Give the People What They Want," and "#IAmBonang" were printed on the tees.


Both of these kings have impeccable taste and meticulously study everything they wear, but which of them has better pants?
