BN Style stars, it’s time for another edition of BN Red Carpet Fab!

Women need one another and once in a while, it is important they get together to celebrate themselves. That was the aim of the Women Celebrating Women Conference on Saturday 15th June 2013 at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Although some gentlemen including Praiz, Jay Jay Okocha, Efe Tommy and Musa Danjuma were in attendance, it was the women that stole the show in their stylish outfits.

American singer/TV host Dionne Warwick as well as Tiwa Savage, Waje, Toolz, Caroline Danjuma, Toke Makinwa, Niyola, Justina, Yemi Alade, Tomi Odunsi, Chee, Seyi Shay, Osas Ighodaro and Yvonne “Vixen” Ekewere were all invited to the event.

Fashion icon Coco Chanel said ” A girl should be two things – Classy and Fabulous” and since it was an event celebrating women, take a look at what they wore.
