Marie Claire‘s June cover star, Terry Pheto, has graced silver screens and red carpets all over the world. Apart from her breakout role in Tsotsi, Terry has starred in internationally acclaimed movies such as Goodbye Bafana, Ayanda, Catch a Fire, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, A United Kingdom, and of course in the well-known soapie, The Bold and the Beautiful. We are serious Terry fans and have therefore compiled some of her best red carpet appearances. Here is her style evolution from 2006 to now!
We are throwing it back to one of her first red carpet events. Terry was seen attending the 14th annual Pan African Film Fest Opening Gala.
Without a doubt, this was the red carpet and movie that introduced Terry to the world. Tsotsi was nominated for an Academy Award, and in attendance she wore a beautiful red and maroon gown that made her look like the African goddess she is.
Terry attended the Toronto International Film Festival at the Roy Thompson Hall, looking breathtaking in a finely detailed backless dress. Obsessed!
The actress looking gorgeous in a black number at the screening of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
Here she is attending the 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards wearing a classic white dress that beautifully accentuated her waist.
Terry Pheto at the 2016 BET Music Awards proving that black doesn’t have to be boring. This dress is brought to life by its exquisite reflecting detail, the feathers and the sheer shimmery material that finishes off the dress.
Here she is at the British Independent Film Awards looking regal in an African print dress. The dress’s pattern, its colourway and Terry’s dramatic earrings sure made her stand out from the crowd. This is one of her style highlights for sure!
Some might say this dress was a safe move, but it shows how simplicity can go a long way when done right. The actress was in London for the National Film Awards for the movie, A United Kingdom.
Finally, Terry looked glamorous in this sophisticated number while attending the Essence 10th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards.
