Described as ‘iconoclastic’ and ‘massive and expressive’, Biya and her bulbous hair had won over the Americans like she had won over Africa with her head-turning look.
Is Chantal Biya's teenager Africa's most stylish first daughter? (Photos)
Chantal Biya’s over-the-top flamboyant hairstyle was the centre of attention when she landed in the United States for the United States-Africa Leaders’ Summit held at the White House in Washington D.C, August 5, 2014.
Her hair was such a hit that Cameroonian salonists were put to the task of crafting ‘The Chantal Biya’ hairstyle for her fans and a Tumblr page dedicated to her burnt-orange tresses was opened.
But that is not all, her designer outfits from Chanel and Dior and elaborate head scarves have made her the Lady Gaga of African first ladies and she has made more news than any African first lady.
And Anastasia Brenda Biya has certainly taken after her famous mum when it comes to making headlines.
Over the last few years, Cameroon’s first daughter has grabbed the headlines for a myriad of reasons. From her penchant for the Sheesha bong where she is seen in a video huffing and puffing at the bong to some intimate photos locking lips with a mysterious man, Brenda has certainly had people mad-pressed about her behavior.
In addition, Brenda has taken after her mum when it comes to style. Unlike her mum whose colors would be the center of attraction at a Chama, Brenda likes to keep her look more Instagram baddie than African woman. Dissimilar to many first daughters who keep their looks refined and classical, Brenda likes to experiment a little. To the extent of wearing blue contact lenses and pink hair.
From her flawless skin to her perfectly arched eyebrows, contoured face and sharp cat eye-liner that could cut diamonds, Brenda is a make-up icon.
Here are some of her looks that have cemented her reputation and Africa’s ‘baddest’ first daughter:
