Roxy Burger on style and her all-time favourite things

The GLAMOUR office loves presenter Roxy Burger’s every bright and bold move, so of course, we’re loaded with questions for E! Entertainment’s How Do I Look? SA host. From what’s in her closet to what she’s binge-watching right now, we meet the host of SA’s hit makeover series.

Who is your go-to designer? Locally, I love what MaXhosa by Laduma and Avant Apparel do. Internationally, if I could afford anything, Gucci! But I’m more a high street fashion kind of gal.

What does glamour mean to you? Being yourself. Cliched, but true. I also think it’s a certain confidence you exude when you feel fantastic – it can’t be bottled and sold.

What item in your wardrobe do you treasure most? Probably my wedding dress, for obvious reasons. Four years later, and I wouldn’t change a thing.

What beauty items should we invest in? Sunscreen! A good one, even an expensive one if need be, because sun damage cannot be reversed and is the number one contributor to aging.

What lessons have you learnt from hosting How Do I Look? SA? Clothes can truly change your life! It sounds so silly, but it’s so true. When you look great, you feel great, and you do great! We literally changed these ladies’ lives, and it was such an honour to be a part of the show.

What do you think viewers can take away from How Do I Look? SA? Not only will they love seeing the visual transformations on screen, but the emotional journey is of equal importance. Plus, along the way, there are so many great fashion and styling tips that you’re bound to learn a ton! I did!

What is your number one style advice? Always be true to yourself and don’t be a slave to trends – not all trends are for everyone, all of the time.

What fashion trend do you wish would go away? Well, the one thing I’ve realised on the show is that South Africans love flip flops! I don’t wish they would go away, but I do wish people would realise that they’re for the pool/beach and plodding around the house – not a wedding!

What fashion items should we invest in? A great handbag. Something timeless, like leather, that will last and become a staple piece in your wardrobe.

Your go-to day look? Skinny or boyfriend jeans, great brogues and an oversized shirt.

Your go-to night look? A great LBD, or midi-BD (midi black dress) with a rose gold pair of strappy heels. Add a funky denim jacket and I’m happy.

What new album are you currently obsessed with? I actually find that I don’t listen to full albums anymore – streaming has spoilt that a little for me. But the new Harry Styles album is surprisingly not very pop and really funky cool.

What is your favourite classic film? Also, a difficult one. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Wizard of Oz… We used to watch so many old films with my gran growing up.

What is your go-to comfort food? Mac and cheese! Good old carbs.

Watch How Do I Look? SA every Saturday at 6.10pm, exclusively on E! Entertainment (DStv channel 124), to find out how this week’s transformation turns out.
