Today we celebrate model and body positive influencer Lesego Legobane known to most of us as Thick Leeyonce who was recently selected as the latest addition to international design house Calvin Klein. This is a huge achievement as Thick Leeyonce is the first South African plus size model and influencer to do such.
Lesego is truly slaying and to honour her we showcase a few times her closet gave us serious style inspiration.
This 90’s inspired look is definitely one to steal. You can’t go wrong in a fitted poloneck, high waisted ripped jeans and old school sneakers.
Anyone who can pull off a red bikini is a girl after our very own fashion hearts. Lesego soaks up the sun and strikes a pose in an eye catching two-piece.
Her cheeky statement shirt gives us life. Statement tees are the easiest way to make yourself heard without all the noise and Thick Leeyonce serves sass in hers.

I spent most of my teen years feeling unworthy because I looked nothing like the women I looked up to on tv and magazines. I got so caught up admiring and wishing for other people’s beauty that I forget about my own. I placed my worth on what society decided was beautiful and tortured myself for not being that, little did I know that all I had to do, to find peace, was to stop comparing myself to others….Just ‘cos I don’t look like somebody (who I think is beautiful) it doesn’t mean I’m not beautiful. I might not be beautiful like them but I am certainly beautiful like me. Roses are pretty, but so are sunflowers and they look nothing alike! Campaigns like @dove’s Project #ShowUs are all about showing us that the world is filled with flowers, all beautiful in their own way! So BLOOM baby and embrace your unique form of beauty ??? #RealBeauty #ad Photographed by @shaun_desousa_photography
She channels her inner Nubian Queen in the most picturesque way. The colour combination and turban gives us nostalgia of lazy summer days.
All hail a woman who can rock a white suit like a second skin. The peplum style of the blazer and inclusion of the waist belt shape her body perfectly.
This look is hot, hot, hot! A leather midi skirt paired with a printed shirt and black heels is all levels of heat.
Thick Leeyonce takes on the coolest trends and wins in cheeky shorts and a snakeskin fitted top.
