Queen of bling Khanyisile Mbau and Queen of dance Chomee have landed new TV roles as fashion police.

The two will be featured on the SABC1 show Music Lounge, a compilation of the best music videos, to judge their peers' fashion sense.

The two 999 stable's most controversial artists will start featuring on the Saturday show from noon to 1pm. The show will present the hits and misses of the yellow carpet at the 14th Samas at the weekend.

In 2006, Chomee was voted Best Styled Artist, while Khanyi is known for her expensive fashion taste. However, it will be interesting to see how other celebrities will react to these two as fashion critics.

Executive producer Katz Rakoma said the two have joined the crew as premium events fashion critics.

"They are two of South Africa's most flashy dressers, and I will be sending them to interview music and fashion gurus on special occasions like Sanlam Fashion Week, the Durban July etc."

During the Samas, Khanyi and Chomee bewildered everyone when they appeared on the yellow carpet dressed like they were going to deliver a performance. They then started interviewing celebrities about their dress codes.

999 boss Arthur Mofokate said he was still in talks with the show producers because "I do not want the show to overshadow their music careers. I don't want them to be too busy, more especially Chomee who is busy with her studies."
