      P.S.: It was supposed to be a black ball, right? Some people dressed wrong o lol. All in all, really good looking peeps!!

      • .....just saying December 19, 2012 at 7:10 PM

        I thought Toke was one of the 3liveChicks. has she been evicted ni?

    • Amanda Vaughn December 19, 2012 at 5:06 PM

      Ebuka: Hot Hot Tameles
      Kemi “Lala” Akindoju: Gorgeous Black Sequin Dress

    • Kaj December 19, 2012 at 5:09 PM

      Toke needs to chill. Toni tones dont just get it right.

    • tayo December 19, 2012 at 5:12 PM

      Dis Tope Makinwa’s cloth doe smh*

      • Leanne December 19, 2012 at 10:38 PM

        Her make up nka? her face is WHITE!!!!

    • Deola December 19, 2012 at 5:21 PM

      Wow! Hot! Hot! Hot! my pick is Lala’s dress

    • Anonymous December 19, 2012 at 5:23 PM

      It was such a fun night! I look forward to the next edition.

    • Jumzy December 19, 2012 at 5:24 PM

      Toke just tries way too hard, and why are her nipples showing in the dress

    • awsomeo December 19, 2012 at 5:45 PM

      Toke’s dress fits her body however it cudda been more decent. We dont need to see ur areola. its not classy. the boobage area of the dress shudda been abit more conservative

    • mee December 19, 2012 at 5:47 PM

      Is dat Tokes nipple I c Der? Nice event sha…….

    • Ella December 19, 2012 at 5:53 PM

      Love Linda’s legs go Linda go Linda, You are my girl any day just like Genny.

    • Madam the Madam December 19, 2012 at 5:55 PM

      ChiDynma looks put together tonight. Keep it up.

      Toke is still out there trying too hard and displaying nipplegate for us.

      Noble looks nice.

      Toni Tones is slowly making her way into my “you try too hard” list.

      Uti, give us an entirely new set of clothes and poses in 2013 okay? Thanks in advance.

      Beverly Naya looks amazing. And I see her and Alex in each other’s vicinity..hmmm. We investigate.

      I’m starting to like this Seyi Shay chick. Looking quite nice.

      Tosyn Bucknor just never gets it right IMO.

      Praiz needs to invest in a stylist. Such a good looking man with very meh style.

      Latasha – looking good.

      Rekana Sharon – No ma’am.

      This high-slit trend…I can’t wait for it to end.

      I think a lot of people in the “unnamed category” look much better than the actual celebs.

      • Sami December 19, 2012 at 6:13 PM

        @ madam the madam, was goin say same about Uti da pose n looks bore me nw.
        Uti please to relax ur face for fun pics! Beverly Naya looks good,but I think she’s got a thing for Uti not Alex # wink wink#

    • nina onita December 19, 2012 at 5:56 PM

      did she get lost to her wedding? cuz y the wedding dress? http://bellanaija.cdn.premiumhost.com.ng/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Y-Magazine-Black-Ball-December-2012-BellaNaija011.jpg, oh bev you are always on point, love the outfit, but the hair is a no no for the color.

    • temi December 19, 2012 at 6:04 PM

      this toni tone or what ever haba u always get it wrong.

    • dee December 19, 2012 at 6:05 PM

      its a ball, why is Noble dressed in a traditional attire? wrong wrong wrong. was he suppose to be acting a play or what? No be black tie event?

      • babylawyer December 20, 2012 at 11:18 AM

        My dear.. formal wear could be either black tie or full traditional dress. Check on any formal dinner or cocktail invitations you may have received.

    • Bey December 19, 2012 at 6:13 PM

      All I see see here is show me yuh skin!! Toke u nid to chill na wts all dt Boobs for…and must u go to every Event?? Yuh forcing it Real Hard these Days,,Don’t allow notice me make u become classless like karen igho

    • Y December 19, 2012 at 6:14 PM

      I do have a bit of a crush on Noble. Whether it’s the fitted pencil pants or the traditional lion’s head Igbo man getup… He just exudes a certain sense of confidence that is alluring! ;)

      • colourfulbutterfly December 19, 2012 at 8:43 PM

        Napoleon syndrome family!

    • Na truth I talk December 19, 2012 at 6:26 PM

      Biko Aunt Toni Tones, JUST STOP!!!STOP!!!!! You don’t have the body for what you’re trying to pull off! sTOP FORCING IT

      Alex Ekubo, Praiz marry me

    • Jane December 19, 2012 at 6:32 PM

      Beverly Naya looks sooooo beautiful. Amazeballs. Best dressed for me.

    • jaja December 19, 2012 at 6:33 PM

      Linda ‘chopping life’ Ikeji is the best dressed. Classy. Not overdone. Love it! Btw, she is one celeb that doesn’t do foneh. She is one person Id love to meet. As Yall can see, jadore Linda.

      • laide December 20, 2012 at 12:20 AM

        lmao ..who made linda a celeb..*just asking*

        • igbo canadian December 20, 2012 at 7:16 PM

          lol…

    • Anon December 19, 2012 at 6:34 PM

      Best i’ve ever seen Noble and maybe because his crotch is not on show. Fab traditional wear.

      Latasha; looks so good. All the bits are hiding.

      Toni Tones; her back is so un-toned. Okay we know you have done your breasts but you should cover the sides too.

      Most of them are well dressed. No Efe Tommy?

      Gbemi O-O is really trying and has stepped up her game. Well done.

      • Anon December 19, 2012 at 6:35 PM

        Forgot to add, Linda’s legs are gorgeous. She needs to moisturise more though.

    • another thing December 19, 2012 at 6:38 PM

      I’m even surprised that BN is posting negative comments about Toke. We know that you all are very partial toward her. Please be fair and balanced, partiality from a classy mag like you all should not be detected. #journalism. get it together bn.

    • Demmy December 19, 2012 at 6:42 PM

      Tomi Odunsi, Lala and Beverly Naya look amazing but the lady in the white dress with the side boob just looks wrong. All in all, lovely pictures.x

    • sparkles December 19, 2012 at 6:49 PM

      Im almost certain that there was someone to screen the guests cos everyone looks splendid. Didnt notice any razzness

    • YN December 19, 2012 at 6:49 PM

      Beverly Naya nailed it, followed by Lala then Linda Ikeji. Lovely legs Linda!

    • ejogene December 19, 2012 at 6:57 PM

      Where are the remaining “regulars” Natasha, Beverly, Linda all nailed it.

    • Chiney December 19, 2012 at 6:58 PM

      I like Noble Igwe’s outfit, he pulled it off well. Igbo and proud!

    • andie December 19, 2012 at 7:05 PM

      Ebuka is the best dressed. Male and female included

    • ada December 19, 2012 at 7:22 PM

      It was a “ball” right? so why exactly are people wearing, cocktail, structured, peplum (and the likes) kind of dresses? BTW, this Toni tones newest idea to go to events almost naked (peep the side boob) is it now a sin to be decently dressed? Lami, why is there a huge difference between the colour of your face and other body parts?

    • ashani December 19, 2012 at 7:34 PM
    • moi December 19, 2012 at 7:36 PM

      toni tones dear..ur side boobs r neva to b seen!!!!!

    • K.H December 19, 2012 at 7:37 PM

      Lami needs a new hair stylist!

    • MamaDMama December 19, 2012 at 7:50 PM

      Ebuka is off key…. something about him and his look is not ugly but not handsome

    • e-bukun December 19, 2012 at 8:27 PM

      LALA!!!!! Simple and elegant, without all the extra
      Me thinks some folks either can’t read or lost their invitation…i’m guessing the dress code was BLACK, or did the other people clear the market?

    • HisRoyalHighness December 19, 2012 at 8:38 PM

      So my boy won the award for “Best Dressed Male” on the night….kindly put show us his pic….thanks!!

    • kenny December 19, 2012 at 8:51 PM

      Waje, please why did you ruin that dress with that bra? Toni Tones, please change style quickly, where are your friends and mirror?.

    • Beauty December 19, 2012 at 9:08 PM

      Beverly Naya looks effortless. Less is more

    • iyawwwo December 19, 2012 at 10:03 PM

      Kaai dis linda is so cute..

    • claribell December 19, 2012 at 10:38 PM

      My girls Linda Ikeji and Beverly Naya look are so beautiful!!!

    • 'Bunmi Lawal December 19, 2012 at 10:47 PM

      See my Shalewa (Tomi Odunsi) looking so fine. Linda, you go girl.

    • Linn December 19, 2012 at 11:10 PM

      B everly, Lala and Linda best dressed. Worst dress is Franca Asindi not very flattering

    • Marc Francis of Chelsea December 19, 2012 at 11:12 PM

      What is this!? I wish you simpletons saw were there to see Miss Toni Tones in person that night. She looked like a glam doll! Even Wana Sambo (who was robbed blind of the best dressed award at the show by bloody Oreka Goodis). The photos do ABSOLUTELY NO JUSTICE to how good those ladies looked. I literally gagged when Toni walked on stage. And why is there no full photograph of Yvonne Nwosu’s high slit?

      • Anon December 20, 2012 at 6:05 PM

        You the condescending simpleton.

    • ant December 20, 2012 at 12:28 AM

      Best dressed – waje
      Toni Tones abi wetin you dey call yourself, you are trying tooooo hard and looking really aweful mehn. All this exposure ain’t cutting it, fire your stylist.
      Toke – the style no fit you at all at all.

    • Shade Adekoya III December 20, 2012 at 12:51 AM

      Toke !!! Noooooooooooo, you are forcing it, you need to chill, whats the fuzz about showing off your boobs, not decent, Toni Tones, classless, i agree that a lot of nameless people look fabulous. #okbye

    • Shade Adekoya III December 20, 2012 at 12:53 AM

      Lami…..please that hair colour is a no no plus you need a total makeover

    • David December 20, 2012 at 9:10 AM

      Weaves and tacky dresses. You know you’re at a Nigerian event.

    • divadaz December 20, 2012 at 10:28 AM

      Thank God Karen Igho didn’t show up… other wise this time dem no go only slap her, dem for beat her turn turn….lol. I know she will be in her house slucking like Cinderella step sister wanting to go the the ball….eh eh..eh…

    • babylawyer December 20, 2012 at 11:31 AM

      Noble’s the best dressed for me. Proudly Igbo and he wore that “ishi-agu” beautifully

      • dee December 20, 2012 at 5:42 PM

        how now? is it a traditional event?

    • Zyioma December 20, 2012 at 12:44 PM

      Best dressed goes to Linda Ikeji, she looks cute.

    • TATAFO December 20, 2012 at 1:55 PM

      What was Shade Ladipo thinking with that colour blocking???
      Isnt that out of fashion already *sigh* all this wanna be celebs sha

    • her royalmajesty December 20, 2012 at 2:21 PM

      i love that smile on your face alex, uti you are looking too serious, beverly naya… loving your outfit so so much

    • tia December 20, 2012 at 4:05 PM

      The only people that really tried was linda ikeji and the babe in red dress with bell sleeves.
      the ladies where just blah, their shoes were off for their outfit…just plain wrong. then the men just no spunk to their attire. everyone was really blah…v.disappointing…too much black I know its a black ball but ya’ll could have worked around the black.

    • Ayo December 20, 2012 at 5:11 PM

      Apart from Sharon being a former Kokolet,wat else does she do?out of a 100 parties she attends 99. Haba!!!

    • Suza December 20, 2012 at 6:20 PM

      Love Beverly Naya!!!

    • Gimmer December 20, 2012 at 6:32 PM

      Toni tones is determined to give us something to talk about…shameless girl

    • abi December 20, 2012 at 8:05 PM

      Please who knows where Yvonne ‘Vixen’ – I must attend every Lagos party- Ekwere is? She’s been missing from the scene.

    • Tracy December 20, 2012 at 8:18 PM

    • marvel December 21, 2012 at 9:38 AM

      Franka Asindi looks fab! This is a veer from the usual (jeans n tops). I note the weight loss, radiant skin and as an editor of Complete Fashion, I expect this level of change going forward. Good on you. Watch this space. Toke Makinwa, u stunner! Nothing do you.
