While everyone who attended the Genevieve Pink Ball put their best foot forward, some decided to put out two feet! So here you have it, the Best Dressed of the Night.
With these individuals, it was about giving a new definition to the word perfection; every detail was taking into account and that’s why they shine so brightly. It is the fit, the boldness of their choices and the successful execution of the entire look from top to bottom by: addition, subtraction and balance that puts them on our list. I rest my case, now you be the incorruptible judge!
Ebuka is the epitome of sophistication in this suit. Tailored to perfection, I love that he went for a dark grey suit rather than a black one, as it complements the fuchsia very well. Sonia goes in the right direction with this short piece. It has youthful exuberance written all over it, and the pearls give it the classy touch needed. Aramide and Ngozi’s combine their pink dresses with gold accessories, I love the empire waist line, the sleeves of their dresses, and how they complement their look with chandelier earrings.
Here we see two ladies who choose to play by the book and two others who go for a twist! Ifeoma’s floor length print dress is nothing short of divine and so is the knee length ruched dress. Ifeoma’s dress gives her an enviable elongated silhouette and the other lady, shows off her to die-for curves in her ruched dress with a tasteful deep plunging neckline. Black and green are statement colours, especially in a room full of pink roses! These ladies stand out for their colour choice and beautiful dresses. Both dresses are cinched at the waist; the asymmetric black one with a brooch at the end, and the green dress with an adorable slim pink sash across her waist. The frill detail on the bodice makes the dress quite alluring.
Genevieve‘s number is a selective and daring piece. A big personality is required to pull this dress off. Can a personality get any bigger than Genevieve? While that creates room for an argument, it can’t be denied that she worked this dress seemingly effortlessly! With a high cut slit, she definitely puts the va in va-va-voom! Bukki is a glowing princess in her bubble hem dress, her accessories, and the sash on her waist add to her looks appeal. Mary Ali-Baba is stunning is this dress! The embroidered details and the fit of the dress make her breathtaking! Our final stunner sparkles in her pleated dress with silver and turquoise embellishments.
