Thuso Mbedu is set to appear in Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Fashion Show Vol. 3.

On Monday, the singer, style icon, mogul and businesswoman dropped the trailer for the third instalment of her Savage x Fenty show, to premiere on Amazon Prime on 24 September. 

This year’s show will “combine fashion, dance, music and iconic architecture, highlighting the newest assortment of Savage x Fenty styles through subtle-yet-impactful scenic elements, lighting and filming techniques,” per the brand’s website.

The show will see performances by Nas, Daddy Yankee, Ricky Martin and Jazmine Sullivan, and feature, among others, Gigi Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, Behati Prinsloo, Soo Joo Park, Troye Sivan and South Africa’s Thuso Mbedu.

Thuso is yet to comment on the news officially, only retweeting Rihanna’s announcement.  

Sharing his admiration for the 30-year-old from Kwa-Zulu Natal, Sizwe Dhlomo tweeted: “I love the Thuso Mbedu story! Asinamusindo, just work nje & results.”

Thuso, who recently won TV Breakout Star award for The Underground Railroad at the Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards, will join Academy Award-winning actor Viola Davis in the upcoming feature film The Woman King. The Woman King will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, who most recently directed The Old Guard.
