Award-winning influencer Kefilwe Mabote turned heads in France during one of the biggest film events of the year. 

The 33-year-old attended the 2022 Cannes Film Festival this week. She walked the red carpet in a gorgeous black gown from Gio Dress.

"A step in the right direction also includes a step on an International Red Carpet. A star-studded affair at the @festivaldecannes . The dreams of a young black woman realised," Kefilwe captioned a picture of her look. 

She says her appearance at the annual film festival was a dream come true. 

"There are moments that simply take your breath away and leave you speechless. Not because you have nothing to say but because your heart is so full with gratitude. This is one of them."
