A New Look for Mabel: Style ME Season 3 – Episode 3

It was so interesting to read comments and feedback on the previous episode of StyleME!
Many felt that Lizzy (last week’s Style Subject) should not have transitioned from traditional Nigerian clothes to western clothing. Thanks for all the comments, we know the producers are reading and taking the feedback into consideration for future episodes.

This week’s style subject is Mabel.
Mabel is a 19 year old student who spends most of her time running errands for her parents and siblings.
While this is noble, Mabel has no time to socialize with her peers and in her letter to Style ME, she noted that she has never been to the cinema.
Petite Mabel also has some body image issues as she feels that her legs are ‘bow’ and her arms are ‘too muscular’.
The Style ME makeover team worked with Mabel to give her a new look that is more fitting to her life as a teenage university student. Other than the external makeover, Mabel also received coaching and counselling to empower her with more confidence.

    Beautiful transformation, big ups to style me you sure do know what time it is, but Mabel looks way above 20, must we use football age in every thing we do in this country? na wa oh.

    Saying this transformation is beautiful would be an understatement. It just shows how wearing the right clothes can do wounders for an individuals look.

    babes, LWKMD-football age! funniest comment i’ve read in a while.

  • judith November 9, 2009 at 8:19 pm

    yes she could actually be 19 or 20. that is what happens to u when u continually have to run errands in the sun with no driver to carry you around. That is what happens when u are stressed and worried. It could be her clothes in d before pics and it is not her fault she cannot buy clothes. abeg leave her cos it might not be football age.

  • burramint November 10, 2009 at 12:20 am

    abeg tell them oh…this is what happens when you have to hustle so your family can survive

  • Obi-talker November 10, 2009 at 2:32 am

    Dear Bella pls tell us when u are going to start your television show. cos your defn heading on that part.

  • Obi-talker November 10, 2009 at 2:40 am

    sorry I meant ‘path’. I really like the Isioma girl, she’s sounds really cool and funny. she’s a good presenter. I hope she keeps it up

  • ld November 10, 2009 at 7:35 am

    Do you know what hustling does to people? Some people need to be shipped off to the village/ slums to experience hardship under the harsh sun with no SPF moisturizers, Spa treatments, proper skin care regimen, see if it doesn’t age you.

    But, true football age might just be the case. hahaha

    The girl looks GREAT!!! Age appropriate, I don’t want to watch and get irritated by the janded accents and nonrelatable autumn/winter color palette, blah. Even me abroad is highly bothered. The Show tried in this episode

  • pwettybambi November 10, 2009 at 8:30 am

    Wats up with the winter/autumn look. Pls how cold is winter in 9ja?

  • donchica November 10, 2009 at 4:34 pm

    To those that dont understand what they mean by autumn, winter, fall etc palette, every human beign falls into one of the four meaning, there are some colors that work well for someone else, and they wont work well on u. For example some ppl wear pastels and they look brighter and more beautiful, if someone else wears them then they look like clowns. I did not explain in the best way but those who know what I mean understand.

  • j November 10, 2009 at 5:45 pm

    babes u are too funny. no it does not mean u fall into different palette or wateva. for like winter when it is dark and annoying pple wear bright colours to be cheerful hence it called d winter palette. so ehm it should not apply in naij.

  • Jay November 10, 2009 at 11:06 pm

    Mabel is looking good. Summer/Winter palette could be adapted to suit the Naija flavour.

  • Ink November 11, 2009 at 5:09 am

    hahahaha. they were so RIGHT about the clones: same weaves, same bags. Nigerian women need to think outside the box… or they shouldn’t~makes me look all the more unique. I keed. Love Style Me, this is my new joint.

  • Bola #1 November 14, 2009 at 2:26 am

    Abeg, which one is winter palette again?
    Are you referring to colours Or heavy clothing.
    …because i dont get

  • angelica November 20, 2009 at 11:59 pm

    omg ….. cldnt believe wen i saw her pic , mabel actually went 2 my sec schl. And yea she must be about 19/20 cos she was in the year below me….
    she always lookd and acted kindof older, i thnk its cos she was d 1st child or sth
    aawww bless , she looked rily nice afterwards
    nice job bella!

  • naima December 16, 2009 at 11:12 am

    ummm sorry J but donchica is actually right. Some people naturally look better in some colors and others don’t. They classify colors according to the seasons and hence they have the winter palette it has nothing to do with the weather or sumtin.
