BN Exclusive: From a Funky Tribal Chick to an African Princess! See Oge Okoye “The Fashionista” – Part 3 (Finale) of the Nollywood Star’s Photo Speak Series

It’s here! The third and final part of Nollywood star, Oge Okoye‘s “Photo Speak” series is a must see for all.

Today is all about Oge Okoye “The Fashionista”. From rocking a Ghana-Must-Go bag as as dress to pulling off a sexy vampire, the Nigerian actress proves there’s no look she can’t deliver.

If you missed Oge Okoye “The Movie Star” or Oge Okoye “The Drama Queen”, be sure to check it out now. Sit back, relax, grab some biscuits and a soda and see all the shots of Oge Okoye “The Fashionista” with words by PR rep for the actress, Egor Efiok.

Enjoy!

African Queen 2

The dress Oge is wearing is made from a Ghana-Must-G0 bag. As most people are aware, the African look rocked major runways with Louis Vuitton making bags and shoes from this material, I don’t follow the “maddening crowd” by being a typical “copy-cat” and love to stand out even when I am following trend, so Oge carrying the bag the way models do on the runway was out for me. I am also aware that this is a tricky pull off, I wanted Oge to look extra pretty here, so I decided to create a “colour-riot storm” around the dress with jewelry, accessories and make-up. I completed the look with her long flowing hair. Rapunzel will be jealous of pretty Princess Oge

African Princess

This is the look I called a “pleasant mistake”. The look I wanted for this theme is the same as the African Queen but everything I wanted substituted. The look I wanted for this theme is exactly as I described above, but everything I wanted was substituted. I wanted the black Ghana-Must-Go bag because it isn’t common, but got the common red check type. I also got silver jewelry instead of the multi-coloured ones I ordered. In fact, everything was what I didn’t want, so to satisfy myself, I decided to repeat the look a week later. However, when the photos came out, Oge looked so pretty in them that we decided to use it as an extra look made from the same material. What do you think?

Funky Tribal Chick
A rep for Oge Okoye calls this look, which took place at the Peninsula Resort, very alluring. Read the official statement;

This is another risky look to pull off, but I like to cross boundaries and I admire the fact that not only does Oge pull it off, but she also looks soft in all her poses and has this tranquil aura about her here. Thumbs up also to Yinka, the make-up artiste.

Sexy Vampire
Could a modelling career be in the pipeline for the actress? Find out what her rep says about this look;

This was one of my most challenging looks and even Yinka (the make-up artiste) said she couldn’t draw a scorpion until I joined hands to encourage her and we both drew it together. It was also my scariest because it was dark and we were shooting on shaky rocks in water. I was so scared that Oge was going to fall, so I had the entire crew surround her. I had flip flops on and almost lost my equilibrium on the wobbly rocks, yet Oge stood on them in 6 inch heels and did not falter in her steps as she contorted her body to different poses. As my touchstone for this look, I had the image of Janet Jackson “absorbing” that tarantula on her cheek. In Oge’s case, I used a scorpion because her star is Scorpio. I also used it to signify strength. You can see the red sting at the tip of the scorpion’s tail disappearing into the corner of Oge’s mouth and she has it trapped. It proves she is a strong woman and cannot be stung.

Tropical Babe
Here’s the official statement of the look;

I wanted Oge to look exotic here and I crossed boundaries again with the matt make-up. The bright yellow nail varnish and wind blowing her long curly hair gave Oge the exotic touch I was looking for. I loved the end result and as usual, Oge looked beautiful. My verdict is Turks & Caicos Islands would love this hot chick as their new resident.

    Well done Oge, God has blessed you don’t worry: people will complain esp the low lifers but never mind just keep doing your own thing and focus on your carrier I believe you are living what you love and your fan will always appreciate you as for haters don’t mind them they just want to be like you but they are not called. Nice concept God bless.

  • Bee Dazzler January 10, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    At this point, although am late in commenting but am being sincere this part 3 is not nice at all. Oge did not potray the clothing very well. i didn’t say i can do more but am sure someone better can give more meaning to the outfit.

  • Bey January 10, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    OgE Baby E don do… Just stop

  • Opsy January 10, 2013 at 2:22 pm

    Before you criticise Oge and her stylist, read the comment before each set of photos and you will appreciate the effort put into the works. Welldone Oge, stylist and photographer. Like the GMG dress.

    • nwanyi na aga aga January 14, 2013 at 8:46 am

      I read the comment, and I totally counldnt relate. I love Oge and her hustle but please this is just not it biko. I supposed the comment should have explained why her lips are painted of different funny colours and for them to say they were contemplating african style with all those colours they should just stop the rubbish, since when did wearing ghana must go bag become african style? Oge and her friends should please stop all this. Anyway thank God this is the GRAND FINALE. Ka anyi zuzie ike (let us finaly rest). Chai!

    Oh please, Rapunzel would be far from being jealous. She Oge’s feet showing her old age and someone should please teach her how to smile. Then that makeup artist should be sued.
    In all, I like the funky tribal chic.

  • T January 10, 2013 at 6:12 pm

    Oh gawsh, but why all this nonsense Ogechi whhhhhhy?

  • concerned citizen January 10, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    Am I the only one that noticed the scorpion drawn on Oge’s face was being referred to as a Tarantula, I thought spiders were tarantula not scorpions.

    • Dee-USA January 11, 2013 at 6:07 am

      My dear na so me sef I scrash my head. Tarantula it most definitely is not. But as the creative director come dey struggle to articulate how she put together this shoot, how she no go struggle call scorpion tarantula. When keeping it real goes wrong on all levels.

    • Femme January 11, 2013 at 6:33 am

      Loool! true!

    • Omo January 11, 2013 at 12:33 pm

      I guess you guys did not read the post very well before concluding…pls read again and don’t be too quick to hate #wink!!….He compared something of Janet Jackson where a Tarantula (spider) was used…but decided on a scorpion for Oge!!
      “…As my touchstone for this look, I had the image of Janet Jackson “absorbing” that tarantula on her cheek. In Oge’s case, I used a scorpion because her star is Scorpio..”

Don’t u know as an entertainer ur brand is ur meal ticket. Snap out of it, and do some damage control luckily, u have the entire 2013 to rectify this mess.

  • dammy baby January 12, 2013 at 10:55 am

    wow! this is beyond shocking…… I have never experienced a celebrity photoshoot this painful to look at. I thought Chika Ike’s yearly eyesores were the worst but Oge has obviously proven me wrong. These awful actresses need to go to acting school and master their craft instead of churning out all these ridiculous unappealing pictures. Jeez!

  • Kween January 14, 2013 at 2:19 pm

    The theme was right, but thats the only thing working here. Everything else is a serious issue. Everything was an epic fail. i get the idea but you guys should have first tried something called training. The makeup and clours werent for her. And in all, nobody asked her to smile or even change her look. Thumbs down

    for reals tho what’s up with all the ‘boning’ in her ALL her pics? Does modelling or being fierce (according to tyra) equal to boning? NO, it just makes you look really really angry, nothing more.

    Oge I think the pictures are very nyc. But those long wigs and horrible lip stick looks kinda scary. u look good on the low short wig and the scorpion stuff on ur face in that pics makes sense. Ur body looks good for a runway modelling. Next time pls tell them to take it easy on the makeup and those horrible wigs. Aside that u look beautiful my dear. Don’t mind haters.
