Another look straight off the high street is this Ruffled tulip contrast dress by Lipsy. The Guinness 250 guest rocked it with all black accessories and sideswept hair. Almost identical to the model really!

Stephanie Okereke does the classic rerock! On the left is Steph at the Guinness 250 event and on the right is Steph at the 2009 Future Awards held in January. There is absolutely no harm in rerocking although we suggest when rerocking try different accessiries to spice up the look

This guest is all black and gold in this FCUK studded black dress. The dress was originally custom made for UK presenter Fearne Cotton but is now available for sale. So who rocked it better?

    • Omesa July 23, 2009 at 1:03 PM

      Omawunmi has set a fashion trail.

    • PRChick July 23, 2009 at 3:03 PM

      Is every naija event color coded? I am not saying this is good or bad- I’m honestly just wondering cuz from what I have seen they always have to wear a certain color at each event. Is it that I happen to always look at the color themed parties? Or is that just how they party in Naija?

    • divalicious baby July 23, 2009 at 3:22 PM

      i agree with omesa. also someone dint iron her outfit while attending a red carpet event?

    • Ola July 23, 2009 at 3:31 PM

      Omawunmi always looks flawless!

    • Mary July 23, 2009 at 4:02 PM

      Omowunmi leads the pack as always in all your recent posts. Linda needs a stylist ASAP! Bimbo os ok! Uche looks…. hmmm like UCHE! Susan looks like a bush wanna be! and the men look better.

    • pepe July 23, 2009 at 4:20 PM

      I love Omowunmi’s dress…but the hair me no like
      Uche Jombo…r u kidding me…still love you sa
      Can Eldee’s tie get any thinner?
      Linda I…perraps nepa took lite so she could iron her dress…but it’s a nice look for her
      I like how Stephanie wore that dress again…..aint no shame in that
      Bimbo Akintola…eeeeeeeeeek
      Hauwa Mukan………..eeeeeek
      Who is funmi Okigbo? She looks like Ciara from that view
      Susan Peters…hell NAH

      ……just my opinion

    • sweetie July 23, 2009 at 4:37 PM

      omowunmi…..best dressed, that girl sha, she rocks!!

    • THE AMAKA July 23, 2009 at 6:15 PM

      this time omawunmi did not rock it the best. her fashion sense is nice but she is a bit over rated. she didnt win best dressed this time.
      and what the hell did steph do? she is suppose to be on of the biggest names in nollywood. does she not remember she is an nollywood a-lister. how can you repeat the same dress?
      na wa oo!!

    • *Dith* July 23, 2009 at 6:55 PM

      Everyone looks decent for d most part

    • Kpakpando Nwanyi July 23, 2009 at 9:17 PM

      What is wrong with her repeating a dress bikonu? Nollywood doesn’t pay like Hollywood, nor are Nigerian designers necessarily running after these starlets to dress them for free. The dress isn’t ugly, still fits her properly and matched the theme for the evening? Should she go broke buying dresses so she doesn’t repeat an outfit or better yet whore herself to the highest bidders, so she can always have something new to wear? Abeg free the babe

    • nandy July 23, 2009 at 9:55 PM

      i agree with Amaka cos i dont really understand why steph should repeat same dress this year on big occassion like this.Reason is cos they gave us this impression that they re stars and can do what hollywood counterparts can do even much better.so much should be expected from them.she can for sure re wear her dress but later on .whatever but it is only the eyes of a child that fears the painted devil.

    • THE AMAKA July 24, 2009 at 2:05 AM

      do you not know what youre talking about. if you watch on youtube the video “nollywood-nigeria” it talks about how at one point stephanie was the highest paid nigerian actress. she even says how she loves to shop.
      that was done back in 2005 though. but she is def not broke. she could have at least bought a beautiful simple black dress with some gold accessories and some simple black pumps and called it a night. but she chose to repeat the same dress that everyone has already seen her in, 6 months ago!
      stephanie is an A-lister for crying out loud!

    • omono July 24, 2009 at 4:05 AM

      you pple are the kind of pple that will want celebs to act like they are not human..biko, even angelina Jolie is known for repeating outfits…
      I feel sorry for Omowunmi A already…this one that they are calling her trail blazer, fashionista i hope the girl wont feel pressurized to churn out all sorts of outfits

    • THE AMAKA July 24, 2009 at 4:28 AM

      girl im not saying they are not human because i KNOW that they are.
      but she is a celeb in the public eye. she knows the press/cameras/paprazzi is watching her so she must be on her best. she doesnt want to become the talk of the event for repeating a dress.
      or maybe she doesnt care about what people think about her repeating a dress, but all i know is that i would not wear the same thing twice if i was an A-lister. even if the dress was cheap i wouldnt wear the same thing.

    • KK July 24, 2009 at 11:59 AM

      make una leave Bimbo Akintola for me o!!
      it took me 10mins to go past that her pic.
      there is something about that babe.
      something that is difficult for flesh and blood to reveal to ordinary eyes.

    • PRChick July 24, 2009 at 4:08 PM

      Are you giving her props or dissing her? I am confused. Cuz it seemed like you were giving her mad props- then I went I looked at the pic for myself…

    • Mina July 24, 2009 at 9:50 PM

      Amaka abeg free the babe enh…..She is free to re-rock an outfit A-Lister or not, the only thing that she did wrong is using the same accessories and hair do. At least she should have totally changed the hair with very different accessories which gives the dress a new look.
      Also, i agree with u on Omowunmi, i love her so much and she has a classic look, but she didn’t do it for me at all tonight. Still love her though!!

    • julie July 24, 2009 at 10:44 PM

      I like the double take parts more very interesting

    • Deola July 25, 2009 at 12:38 AM

      I disagree with u. I beg stop putting pressure on the babe jare,ever occured to you that she jst likes playing dress up? Omowunmi is young and vibrant. Actually i think she looks the part. Simple, chick n adorable. In fact she looks like” oh they begged me to come n i said ok”(in the sweetest way u can imagine)
      Outfit, hot, simple n chick
      Hair, nice
      Make up, minimal,
      Nice smile
      What else can u ask for. Omowunmi i just lovveeeeeee you

    • policeisyourfriend July 25, 2009 at 4:10 AM

      Amaka..she is a celeb in the public eye…so what?what if as a person she doesnt really care for clothes…what if she really is broke nko?even if she isnt broke sef…abeg free her…abi make she go steal because she is trying to live up to A lister status

    • AMAKA July 25, 2009 at 7:32 AM

      OMG!!! i was just saying. you people on this site take things to personal.
      all im saying is that she is an A-lister and shouldnt re-rock the same dress.
      its my opinion. everyone is entitled to one, you know?
      i know i wouldnt ever re-rock a dress, i wouldnt even go.
      its just beer the event probably wasnt that important like an award ceremony or anything like that.
      its just beer, i would have stayed at home. lol
      unless it was an award show for acting or something.

    • KK July 25, 2009 at 8:58 AM

      it has nothing to do with the pic.
      me diss Bimbo??
      no way!!
      the lady is tight.

    • chichi July 27, 2009 at 1:59 PM

      ok i guess we should do the police fashion right . who wears it best or worst

    • a July 28, 2009 at 10:12 AM

      I feel the sentiments bout not erocking an outfit especially to t an event where you know you’ll be photographed but having said that Michelle Obama is on the world stage, her every move is watched by billions , yet she rerocks her outfit even as little as a ten day gap between.
      Stephanie isnt a bigger star nor does she have the financial ability so it shows its a personal thing. I wouldnt have done that but well thats me!!!!

    • Faith July 28, 2009 at 6:52 PM

      LOL.. love your comment The Amaka.. lol. very cute..

      Stephanie was rocking a Marchesa dress….with the price tags on that designer, I don’t blame sister girl for rocking it twice. smile.

    • FatherHadADonkey July 31, 2009 at 7:06 AM

      Linda Ikeji holla at me..i will style you for free!!!lol

    • THE AMAKA August 7, 2009 at 11:19 AM

      awwww who remembers this pretty picture?
      back from 2005. (:
