Meet Thato Mahapa: a Johannesburg-based law student, fashion connoisseur and the 2017 winner of the prestigious GQ ‘Best Dressed Reader’ title. We caught up with him to learn all about the equally hunky and fashionable man!

What would you say is your best attribute, and why?

I think my best attribute is my positive outlook on life. It keeps me going and it inspires those around me. No one wants to be around a person who exudes a negative aura.

Who or what inspires you?

I’m inspired by the pursuit I’m on to continuously improve myself and my life in all aspects. In terms of style, I’m really inspired by the Afro dandy movement.

What’s your idea of a perfect date?

It’s a combination of three things: visiting an art gallery, going for a couples massage/spa day, followed by dinner at a place we’ve never tried before.

What’s your favourite drink?

At the moment, it would have to be a craft G&T.

What fills the spot at the top of your dream destination list?

Definitely Monaco.

Do you have any regrets when it comes to past relationships?

I don’t have any particular regrets about my past relationships. What I will say though, is that I’ve learnt a lot from them.

Who is your style icon?

Tom Ford.

Who is your WCW?

It would have to be Ayanda Thabethe.
