Elle Franco.... DIY Queen, Fashionista and travel lover!

KDTComms sat down with the gorgeous DIY Queen, fashionista and all round travel lover, Elle Franco and got down to the nitty gritty's of life.

Have a read about what this energetic ball of a person has to say......

What is the one thing you wish you could tell your 16-year-old self?

Save some of your money, a little bit of savings here and there is such a good habit to adopt.( I should say this to my adult self too! Haha!)

What is the most-read book on your book shelf?

My Moms published book she wrote about the life of Sarah Bartmann called “ Exile Child”, I have read that book many times, every time reminds me of how talented my Mom is.

How would you define your style?

I am a mix of so many different styles. I love fashion and I am always changing up my style. I can wear a chic style outfit for one look and then the next look is all “Tom Boy/ Sporty”.

Has it changed since you have been in the entertainment industry?

Nope, I have always loved to dress up and stylish. Putting outfits together and buying fashion has always been my “hobby”.

What are 2 of your favourite must-have brands? 

I have loved Adidas since I was a teenager and still do. At the moment I must have “ Charles and Keith footwear.

Who is your style icon and why?

 Jennifer Lopez, because she basically looks polished in everything she wears, from a classic gown, to a power suit and even rocks sweats and a hoodie!

What's your guiltiest pleasure? 

A bowl of olives, I can eat way more olives than a normal person out there.

Who would play you in the film biopic of your life? 

Zooey Deschanel, with the way she acts in “New girl” I think she would portray my character easily- minus the terrible outfit choices of “Jess” in that series. Haha.

What would the title of your autobiography be and why? 

“ Wing it” because in my life I have often never had a clear cut answers or completely know an outcome of certain choices, I have always just said yes and then try figure it out later, “winging it as I go” and it works out most the time. 

If you could raid anyone’s wardrobe, whose would it be? 


Where is your favourite place in the world and what makes it so special? 

That is a tough one, there are so many wonderful places in the world where I have been fortunate enough to see J But recently my honeymoon to Greece blew my mind, it is just so picturesque and unique.

Where is your go-to eating spot in JHB? 

Again I love food so I love many eating spots in Jozi. I have to say I don’t think I will ever pass up a invite to eat out at the restaurant Wasabi, Just Darling at Mall of South and Doppio Zero.

What do you love most about JHB? 

I love that it is so busy, the hustle and bustle of Joburg is great.

Which artists/actors/personalities have influenced you the most? 

Jim Carrey, Jeannie D and Danny K.

What makes JHB ‘home’? 

The Highveld thunder storms, after a long hot day having a family braai.
