"THIGH GAP"? Bullsh*t!

‎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.

Annie Idibia's stylish look! Hit or Miss?

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

Emma Nyra's LBD - Hit or Miss?

Legs on patrol here guys! Tripple G first lady Emma Nyra made a bold fashion statement at the Sporah Show rocking a super mini asymmetric little black dress accessorized with with gold choker neck piece and a waist belt. My opinion, super hot from neck to! I love Emma a lot (her song with Davido is my ring tone) but i hate the wig, hate the makeup and hate the shoes - c'mon girl, it just doesn't co-ordinate. She's a very pretty girl though, i just wish she'd up her style game! What do you think? Hit or Miss? More pictures below

Face-Off! Olivia Palermo Vs Kaylah Oniwo in double denim.

I am an obsessed fan of Olivia Palermo's style, i can't get enough of it. She's one of the greatest icons of our time and her fashion is simply impeccable. She spotted this double denim ensemble (skirt and shirt) during fashion week a couple of days back while OAP Kaylah Oniwo gave her own twist to the trend at the Spice TV runway fiesta. Who wore it better?

Eva Alordiah chanels Maleficent!

Stumbled on this just now and WOW!!! Way to go Eva! We all know how much rapper 'Eva Alordiah' loves her make up right. Well, i guess she's given us a reason to think music isn't her only talent. She took on a challenge a while back by fellow entertainer Yemi Alade to recreate Anjelina Jolie's infamous Maleficent movie cover. I think she did a great job on this one. How about right?

Latrice Royale performs in sheer bedazzled bodysuit!

This was at the Fashion Rocks - New York Fashion Week 2014. Fierce! Thoughts?

Look of the day - Munachi Abii!

Though i feel the modern oleku combo is a little overdone and is almost a passe, gorgeous ex beauty queen Munachi Abii made it look very fresh with her silk army green choice while making an appearance at Owen Gee's show. Her haircut and barely there makeup totally complimented the ensemble and i think she looked fab. Thoughts?

Just sharing another one of my drawings/paintings!

Don't know why but these days, i see a look i heart and i'm tempted to draw/paint. This time, its the fabulous lady in red, Genevieve Nnaji! You like?

Trend alert - Culotte shorts! Would you rock?

Just when we had it with skin bearing lace and butt crack revealing shorts, the god of fashion finally decided to return sanity with relaxed Culotte shorts. If your are an edgy fashion lover and looking to experiment with one of the coolest trends this season, Culotte shorts are a must try! They are said to have been designed in the early 80's so as allow women the ease of ridding horses but all thanks to designers like Alexander Wang, Mulberry and Diane Von Furstenberg, the shorts have made its way back to modern fashion and even bagged one of the hottest trends of the season.

Which is your favorite Kaffy hair?

If you guys are huge fans of MTN project fame as much as myself, then you'd know Kaffy's hair is always something to look forward to every weekend. The record setting dancer is obviously very unapologetic with her choice of hair styles ranging from mohawks to super bright colors and even half shaved cuts. Just curious now, which looked best on her? I kinda like no! Anyways, which is yours?

Stunning Miss Juliet Ibrahim at the NEA 2014!

Now that's one heck of a way to rock a little black dress!

Linda Ikeji's matching Milly cropped top and skirt - Hit or Miss?

The former model now blogger  'Linda Ikeji' instagrammed a pic of herself rocking this form fitting floral cropped top with matching skirt by Milly sometime last week. Definitely not one of my favorite looks on her, the top and skirt fits perfect on her however with that bag and shoes.......just looks off and uncoordinated (to me). May if the shoes had been white with a smaller bag.....that would have worked but really, i'm just excited to see her in cropped top. Lol! What do thiink guys, Hit or Miss?

Loved it so much, had to share! lol!

Its not perfect but i had an amazing time illustrating/painting the iconic picture. I thought both ladies Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Daroke Akande spotted one of their best looks of all time.........had to just paint. lol!

Face-Off! Linda Ikeji, Rachel Bilson ad Chrissy Teigen in Milly cropped tops and skirt.

Who wore it best?

Face-Off! Tiwa Savage Vs Jessica White in LaQuan Smith!

Nigerian Songstress Tiwa Savage and super model, Jessica White both rocking the same lace bandeau top and skirt by LaQuan Smith - who wore it better? My opinion, in as much as i'd love to choose Tiwa, goodness, Jessica slayed this outfit - head-to-toe perfection! Its is a fun whimsical outfit, Jessica is obviously happy wearing it.....proper waist definition just exactly what a cropped top should do to your mid section and her minimal accessories, sandals and makeup just pulled the whole thing together. Tiwa on the other hand, first, the top looks too small on her (need to be a bit wider) and the skirt just needs to be pulled down a couple of inches to give her waist more definition. Maybe its her mood or the pose, it just looks off to me. Lovely outfit on tiwa but its certainly not doing anything for body proportions. Jessica has this for me! How about you?

Which is your favorite Tiwa's NEA dress?

Both outfits are by African American designer, LaQuan Smith. The first, lace bandeau top and skirt while the second is a hig neck three quarter sleeve mesh dress. Which is your favorite look? Really, i don't understand why Tiwa is obsessed with letting her hair down all the time. She's got one of the best hairlines i've ever seen and pulling her hair up once a while would do her face a whole lot of good in my opinion.

Peeshaun gets a new haircut, guess who inspired it?

Peeshaun of skuki channels his inner Neymar by spotting an identical hair cut to the Brazilian footballer. Peshaun looks really 'fresh' i must admit but the haircut...........errmmmmmm, i'll just have your opinion instead. What do you think? Another pic below.

P.S - i deeply apologize for my prolonged absence - long story guys but really, i'm sorry.
