I've always been of the opinion that no one can rock a creation better than the designer (cos they are the ones who know how exactly the creation should fit) but in this case, i'm split. Singer Tonye rocked the Nigerian label (Wanna Sambo) a while back while vacationing in Miami pairing it with a bikini top and hoop earrings. Most recently; a few days ago, during the opening of her store, Wanna kept it simple in her creation pairing it with a black cropped top and classic bob. The flowy palazzo pants and long jacket is from Wanna's resort 2015 collection.

Solange was spotted attending an event which she also DJ'ed at in NY yesterday rocking a dress by Nigerian Label 'Maki Oh'. This was from her A/W 2015 "Mami Wata"collection. Love the creativity and detailing of the dress. Elegant and chic! Another photo below.

One of the most fab weekend looks was definitely served by actress Genevieve Nnaji. She wore a lace belted crepe black and white gown by David Meister to her friend - Oyinye Cater's wedding. Love the dress? Get it here for $292 (N58,400). Loved this look on her, not so much the hair though.

Ok, not hating on the brides now but Onyinye Carter's wedding over the weekend totally reminded me of Kate Middleton's because of one thing - the brides maid's dress totally caught my eye more than the actual bride *ooooopppsss* No doubt, Oyinye and the Duchess of Cambridge were breathtaking in their individual gowns however there's just something about their best girlfriend's dresses that strikes me.
The body on this woman, i can't deal! The ever stunning Ghanaian actress/presenter hosted the Vodafone Ghanaian Music Awards which held on the 11th of April. She wore 4 amazing outfits (one one the red carpet and 3 on stage) and yes, she rocked in every piece.

I don't know if calling it a trend would be appropriate but i definitely know that in the last 2 years or so, there's been a massive natural hair movement. I got my own big chop last year because i finally grew the balls to; my hair had gotten so weak/thin from constant relaxing and ever since, i've been loving it. That being said, here are some fabulous Nigerian celebrities who would make you drool over nappy! Yes, you can look even more stunning in your natural kinky hair than you ever thought.

She actress spotted a sky blue/white polka dotted blouse and a front slit red pencil skirt at the recent AY Live show. She accessorized with a statement necklace, hologram pumps and a clutch. What do you think about her ensemble? Hit or Miss? Personally, not my best look on her and that goes without even saying her makeup is a NO NO! Thoughts!

Funny actress Fuunke Akindele looked lovely while attending the 2015 AY live show over the weekend. She kept it cool in a pair of ripped denim, white wrapped blouse and nude pumps. I think she really looked good here! BTW, those lips are popping......Nice makeup! What do think about her look? Yay or Nay?

Next time you want to steal from your mans closet, you might seriously consider taking his shorts. Lol! New mama Kelly Roland gave us every reason to be all about mens fashion in her Ashish Spring 2015 ensemble. She looked sexy, cool and comfy in a grey sequin hoodie Tee with matching shorts on the red carpet of a show she hosted on Atlanta recently. She accessorized with her a pair of sexy mule.

Beautiful Nigerian Novelist, Chimamanda Adichie is being featured in Vogue UK's TODAY I'M WEARING' for the month of March. For this feature, she will be showing the magazine some of her everyday style all through the month. This woman has got incredible style i tell you. Here's a sneak peak and breakdown of a few.
Mrs Attoh was spotted last night on the red carpet of new TV show 'After 30'. The fab mother of one looked flawless in an orange shimmery dress with deep plunging neckline. Absolutely stunning! Thoughts!

Absolutely no typo up there cos obviously its a yay right. Lol! If you follow American idol, you'll know Jlo's ensembles is something to always look out for. The 45 year old singer has been slaying all season long. Her latest look, an Elie Saab (spring 2015) embellished romper was an absolute stunner. With a subtle smokey eye, nude lips and a high fishtail braided ponytail, Jenny did that! The runway look below.

Cont: Just like every other fashion fix, its about doing the opposite of what you are trying to achieve. For instance, if you want to look slimmer, wear vertical stripes; if you want to look wider, wear horizontal stripes; you want to look curvy, wear an illusion dress and so on. Now back to long torsos. What we are looking to do here is to create a balance between your upper and lower half. Since obviously, your upper half is longer, you want to make it appear shorter thereby making your lower half longer. Get it? I'm sure you do. I know there's a lot of back and forth but just read through patiently.
