Inside our December/January 2021 issue!

The festive season’s here – and it’s time to celebrate!

In this issue of Glamour, we celebrate surviving the most turbulent year of the decade and pat ourselves on the back for our accomplishments, big or small. Inside this issue of Glamour, in our monthly series titled ‘Memoirs’, we feature several fitness and wellness professionals who offer expert advice to help you prepare for the year ahead. Highlights include our well-curated ‘Gift Guide’ to help you shop smart, holiday entertainment, the latest summer fashion trends and the creative collaborations on our radar.

Our cover star, actress, human rights activist and television personality Nomzamo Mbatha, has a leading role in Coming to America 2. The sequel of the popular 1988 film will premiere worldwide this December, placing her on the global stage. With seven years in the business, she’s established herself as a serious player in the entertainment world and has acquired several endorsements deals with global brands. Now based in Los Angeles, she’s a regular feature on the red carpet, as well as on stage hosting prominent awards and events. She talks to Glamour about a young Nomzamo who had big dreams, how she’s surviving in a competitive industry and being a humanitarian. We photographed the cover story in her hometown, Durban, where it all began.

Enjoy the read.

Until next time.
