To get the contest going, here’s my caption submission:
“Try as she may, Moochelle simply couldn’t suppress her inner Ndebele.*”
*The Ndebele people in South Africa are one of the Nguni tribes who represent nearly two thirds of South Africa’s Black population. Ndebele women traditionally adorned themselves with a variety of ornaments, each symbolising her status in society. After marriage, dresses became increasingly elaborate and spectacular. In earlier times, the Ndebele wife would wear copper and brass rings around her arms, legs and neck. The rings (called idzila) were believed to have strong ritual powers.
