Annie Idibia was recently in Ghana to show her legendary hubby 'Tuface' support while performing on stage. The fashionable mother of two looked chic in a tribal print glittery cropped top and matching skirt. She kept her makeup minimal while accessorizing with nude pumps and a blue clutch worn cross body. I vote this look a Hit! See more photos below
Although her bump was barely noticeable, Kate Middleton was purely an epitome of class and sophistication while making her first public appearance yesterday after announcing her pregnancy. The 3 month old mama to be stunned first in an Alexander McQueen coat dress and later on slipped into a sexy high slit Jenny Packham light blue number paired with ankle strap heels. More looks below.

Looking ravishing i must admit. Guess what they say about never going wrong with cutting your hair during pregnancy is true afterall (Annie Idibia did hers too remember) Lol! While attending the movie Premiere "Invasion 1897" in Texas, Dallas (), the gorge mama to be was spotted for the first time on the red carpet since announcing her pregnancy a few month ago. She kept things simple and basic in a black ruffled jumpsuit. Actress Monalisa Chinda was also in attendant spotting a cute LBD. See more pictures below.
Well, i guess Beyonce Knowles and Bolanle Olukanni have something similar after all. Both spotted really chic floral pencil skirts last week and going by some of fashions much adorned dolls like of Posh, Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klum, we're guessing the sophisticated girly apparel could be making huge rounds very soon. See how celebrities and street fashion are serving.

Lovely lady in red Miss Tonto Dike looked regal in her stunning cutout red power shoulder dress at the Nollywood Movie Awards 2014 held last night at the Intercontinental Hotel in VI. I love her hair and makeup particularly her gothic lips. Gorgeous! See more photos below.

Fabulously spotted in pink is the curvaceous actress, Ebube Nwagbo. I really love this outfit on her but 1 thing i feel was totally off is the black bra! Nope, it don work! Nice look regardless though. Thoughts?
Pony tail, cutout back, butt tight denim pants.......Reality star 'KimK' and ex-beauty queen (Miss Aso Rock 2012) Kome are serving some serious sexy. Not exactly the same top but similar styling, who did it best?

I'm i the only one obsessed with her new darker, longer, straighter locks and those dangerously sexy smoky eye? Actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde was every inch perfection in this custom made dress by Tiffany Amber. One of my best looks on her ever! Now this is what i'm talking about! Fashion is serious business and its all about the total package. Hair, makeup, dress, confidence and every other thing on point. She slayed this one!
Super model Oluchi Orlandi looks flawless on the cover of Forbes Africa Woman's October/November 2014 issue. Looking smart and professional in suit, edgy in prints and sexy in sequin, the former face of Africa stuns in an array of Top Nigerian Designer outfits. See her spread below and her outfits
Whose interpretation of the high low dress do you prefer? Ghanaian Designer "Mimmy Yeboah" from one of her 2013 creations (in a strapless Ankara version) or Mrs Clooney (Amal Alamuddin) in Oscar De La Renta 2014 (in a silk floral print version)?
Mrs Ryan Renolds was every inch stunning while gracing us with her first red carpet appearance since announcing her pregnancy. Attending the Golden Heart Awards in New York last night, the lovely mama to-be glowed in an glittery embellished dress with nude underlay by Designer, Michael Kors (Resort 2015). Can't wait to follow her preggy style, she is gonna killit. This woman will you wish you were pregnant for the rest of life - that, i guarantee with blake. More photo's below

Since its throw back Thursday, i thought we could have a look at some fabulous retro looks of the legendary diva, Miss Onyeka Onwenu. Her iconic haircut, love for fashion and beauty wasn't just an overnight transformation, believe me, she's revolutionized the industry in many more ways than music. Her iconic looks are very reminiscent and celebrated in modern day glamour with the likes of Chidinma, Munachi Abii, Katherine Idoho and Omoni Oboli ditching long locks for natural kinky short cuts (see my post on Nigerian beauties rocking here). With sultry gorgeous eyes, bushy natural brows and beauti'FULL' lips, Onyeka can be described as an epitome of a true African beauty

Actress, Funlola Aofiyebi Raimi wore the lovely draped red dress last year while media personalty Iretiola Doyle rocked hers just a few weeks back. Who wore it better?
If i could describe Miss Taylor Swift's style in two words, it'll be classic and feminine. I'm yet to find any young adult in Hollywood who does those two words better. No surprise to me she won best dressed female for 2014, she was absolutely phenomenon. As a matter of fact, if there's any fashion role model i would advice young girls to follow, it'll be Taylor Swift. Let's have a look at some of her best street style and see how she manages to keep her clothes tight enough to show she's a woman yet loose enough to show she's a lady.
Well, i think as Iyanya and Peter are concerned, i'm sure their answer would probably be no. Lol! The discussion came up amongst my girlfriends today and surprisingly a lot of ladies found guys who wore underwear's more attractive than those that didn't. Honestly, i would have guesses the reverse but that's what it is! I'd love to have your opinion, what do think?

Surprisingly it just occurred to me these two share a striking resemblance yesterday. British singer and X-factor winner, Alexandra Burke (L) and Nigerian Actress, Dakore Akande (R). Don't you think?

Maybe matching your handbag and dress in the exact same fabric/design isn't your idea of a fashionable combination but if top designers are making it and fashion forward celebrities are wearing it, i guess it kinda says something right. I'm not really sure about the trend just yet but quite a few fashion divas have spotted it. Up there is a Gucci dress and handbag. Continue to see more below:
I'm sure those following me on instagram (soladunn) must have seen the rough sketches when i was working on this. The whole idea came from this lovely set of green & white flowers (below) i came across just a few days before Independence and i thought - how about i design/sketch a classic dress out of this? Well, thats what i came up with, not so bad hey! Lol! BTW, if i could put this on a body or person.........it'll be Miss Agbani Darego!

While MTN project fame season 7 might have ended, one thing i am certainly still drooling over is the fabulous Miss Bolanle Olukanni. Proving she's not just a pretty face for TV, Bolanle was a very confident and brilliant co-host moreso to top it off, she is a total fashionista. Her style game was absolutely top notch with chic, elegant and sophisticated ensembles. Her fashion choices were nothing less than perfection and she always gave us something to look forward to every show. Dressed by top Nigerian designers from April by Kunbi, to Mai Atafo, Iconic Invanity, Dutchess and so much more, here are her amazing looks through the entire show

Shout out to all my stylish new friends on instagram, it's been amazing keeping up with your styles and getting to see your lovely faces. Do keep following, commenting and let's get the conversation going. Up there is one of my fabulous readers from IG (Village gel - her name is nothing similar to her fashion y'all), she's got incredible style i must admit. She's rocking a Dashiki which inspired me do this post. Enjoy!

The title of this post sounds stupid right, well thats because what i'm about to talk on actually is. Just incase you haven't heard, there's this ridiculous diet obsession movement on the rise now and it's called the 'Thigh Gap'. As the name implies, the thigh gap is the gap between you inner thighs when you stand up straight with your feet touching each other. Ofcos, some women were actually born with this gap however the disturbing aspect of it is that lately, a lot of girls have turned to extreme dieting and even surgery to achieve it all because it is believed to symbolize the 'ideal feminine shape'. Some argue that it increases attractiveness and is a sign of fragility. As a matter of fact, the wider your thigh gap, the more beautiful you are considered these days.

Curvaceous actress and diva, Omotola stole the spotlight at the premiere of her new movie Blood Lagoon which held on the 13th September in Houston, Texas. Her wrap dress was by Ejiro Amos Tafiri. She accessorized with matching peep toe pumps and a bold statement necklace (which i'm not such a huge fan of with this ensemble). Way to go Omotola! love this look regardless. More photos below

This by far is one of my best looks on Annie. The wife of music icon and mother of two made a stylish appearance at the Owen Gee show spotting an all blue and white ensemble. The highlight of her outfit was her blue Hermes Birkin handbag and Christian Louboutin Impera Lace-up pumps. Annie joined A-listers like Rihanna, Rita Ora, Nicki Minaj, Alessandra Ambrosio in rocking the over $1,000 one of a kind lazer cut pumps. Pictures of other celebrities rocking the piece below
