Why Michelle Obama is my most stylish and beautiful first lady of all time!

Can you believe that up there is the first lady's natural hair? Yes peeps, she's got amazing locks. The United states first lady over the years has not only wowed us with her tremendous hard-work, dedication and beautiful personality........ as a mother, wife and the first lady of the USA, little do you know that she's also a writer and a lawyer. Amongst all these, she's also known to have an excellent taste in fashion and style. Every single ensemble she puts on her body oozes class, elegance and poise. She's truly an inspiration to me as a person and that's why am sharing some of her fabulous fashion moments.

Looking to brighten up your look? Try a hot pink stiletto!

A while ago, i wrote about my obsession with neon shoes and my favorites which were acid lemon and Pink. Haven written on acid green, for this post, we will be looking at the why's and how's of pulling off a neon pink stiletto. Pink is a shade that can't be overstated when it comes to femininity and incorporating it into your outfit in form of a footwear is usually eye catching, sweet and beautiful. A lot of times, we get overwhelmed on what exactly should be the focal point of our ensemble but i'm telling you now, if you're ever in doubt, wear a pink stiletto! I know it may be a little tricky and most likely, you may be a little scared going down that lane but not to worry, that's why am here to break things down specially for you! Lol!

SolaDunn's Nigerian celebrities Fashion Honoree 2013!

Oh boy, i've always wanted to make a list of my most remarkable fashion devotees and am so excited i get to do it this year. If these celebrities have gone through the stress of hiring professional stylists and spending big bucks on top designer brands, its only fair we recognize them hey. I came up with diverse categories because i wanted a broader spectrum. The criteria at which they were chosen includes consistency, growth, red carpet/stage appearances, individual style and personality within the year 2013.

Fashion Discussion - Butt revealing 'red carpet' dresses! What do you really think?

I know it might be quite a fashion risk but Jaimie Alexander here isn't the only one that has taken the daring plunge by leaving very little to the imagination. From side boobs in sheer dresses to glitter behinds, celebs like K.Stewart, Miley Cyrus, Jlo and Ciara to name a few have all taken the bold step. My opinion, i'd say if you've got the guts and body, go for it! It may sound insane but i have absolutely nothing wrong with the trend so far it is done tastefully (the cut-out's, paneling and embroidery in the perfect places) and it must be a 'red carpet' event. I might not support it on the street cos its a little too much but for a glamorous night outing, i'd concur!

Rihanna debuts new bob cut cut its all black errtin!

OMG!!! I'll talk about the ensemble first and its a tripple yay for me, Lol! Seriously guys, who needs pants when you have legs that look this good! I think she looks amazing and her new bob cut (which am sure is a ig anyway),  its okay - i know it'll grow on me, i mean its riri right! What do you think? More Pictures below

Okay am officially a Rita Dominic addict, see why!

The only thing am craving as far as Rita is concerned right now is for her to switch up her hair do..plzzzzzzzz girl. She's been so remarkable 'fashion-wise this year and with pictures from the AFRIFF 2013, she proves casual = chic. Kate Henshaw, Linda Ejiofor, Omoni and the rest looking smashing  below

Yvonne Nelson sizzling in Velvet - Hit or Miss?

OMG!!! I love this look, i really do. Am really not a fan of head to toe velvet because i feel they could be a little too much and bulky (that is kind-of like my turn-off with this look) but it works perfectly on the sexy actress. Her body though! My major highlight is the cape-like sleeve and her barely there makeup.What do you think guys? Hit or Miss?

Need a 'shirt dress' icon? Talk to Rita Dominic!

Beautiful actress Rita Dominic is undoubtedly one of the best dressed celebrities in the Nigerian entertainment scene, however, a particular apparel she seems to be a bit obsessed with and works great on her is the infamous 'SHIRT DRESS'.

See a few of my favorite looks below.

matching shorts and peplum tops - would you wear?

While i think it is highly unflattering on Tiwa due to her body type, Rita Dominic is every inch perfection in her LDA (Lanre Da Silva Ajayi) version. Question is, after seeing it on two of Nigeria's fashionable entertainers, would you consider wearing matching 'short' short with peplums? Also, which LDA version do you prefer below? The runway skirt version or Rita Shorts?

How to wear a PENCIL SKIRT for all occasions!

Referred to as one of the most understated women apparel in fashion is the ever classic and elegant PENCIL SKIRT. The highly feminine apparel has been around for ages (50's) and worn by women of all body types. The perfect piece every woman should own for that touch of sophistication, pencil skirts can be worn from casual to formal and even red carpet. Ladies, it is one of my highly recommended apparel and here are few interesting ways to pulling it off round the clock.

Tiwa Savage obsessed with purple are we!

It is daring, it is fierce, it is vamp, it is PURPLE (some call it plum)! Darker lip shades from the 90's are turning up the world of beauty and daring fashionistas all around are embracing. A particular shade that seem to be very captivating yet understated is the ever rich and trendy purple. Purple is a very beautiful color and thanks to brands like MAC, several shades have been developed to match every skin tone. Dominating the world of beauty and inspired by one of naija's finest 'Tiwa Savage' (gosh! She's so beautiful now, isn't she), here's why you should try the trend and my recommendations.

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde's dress - Hit or Miss?

Am sure a lot of you might have probably seen this dress on actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde. This was a couture dress by Roooi which she wore for the Ebony Vanguard award in Birmingham, Uk but what do you really think about it? My thoughts, not the most flattering dress on her and heres why. Omotola has got one of the best bod in the industry (no contest) but unfortunately, i feel they always put her in the wrong dresses. Its either there is feathers all over making her look bigger or the dresses are just way too tight making her appear 'forced' just as this.

SolaDunn's styling tips for a simple WHITE TEE!

Hey friends, how are you! Its another full fashion and style article today. Hope your week wasn't stressful? I had a blast (my boss was off on official duty abroad so oh boy, not too much work abeg, danced skelewu all tru. Lol). Now, back to fashion. Am sure a couple of you might be wondering why i chose a 'plain white Tee' as our style apparel during the style challenge that went down a while back - shout out to all the contestants again, you all were FABULOUS! Well, i chose that particular apparel because it is considered as a 'major' wardrobe staple in fashion (i don't believe there's actually any woman...well, fashionable woman on the surface of the earth that doesn't own one). For me likewise, i see it as one of the most versatile pieces any fashionista can ever work with. It can be dressed up, dressed down, urban, chic, ghetto, classy and you think of it! 

Do you think Kim Kardashian should wear a short wedding dress?

Ever since her engagement to Kanye, we've noticed a trend in the bride-to-be style. Spotting all white (lacy) you think she's giving us a clue on what her wedding dress would look like? Personally, i'd love to see Kim wear a short dress and not white. Only because, i feel she's been there and done that. She's been married twice, she wore 3 amazing dresses during her wedding to Chris Humphries and being the exceptionally beautiful woman she is, i think she'll pull off a short wedding dress amazingly. BTW, i hope she gets rid of the blond hair too (i miss her dark hair so much). What do you think?
