BN Pick Your Fave: Dakore Akande & Toke Makinwa in Moofa Designs


Hi BN Style Lovers,

We’re out with a brand new edition of our BN Pick Your Fave and today we have media personality Toke Makinwa and actress Dakore Akande both rocking a shirt dress from Nigerian designer Moofa’s “LabaLaba Collection”.

We love how the two ladies rocked their outfits in unique ways.

Dakore Akande first rocked the dress a couple of months ago. Styled by Rhoda Ebun, the actress rocked the shirt dress freely over a pair of red trousers. She accessorized with colourful peep-toe pumps.

Toke Makinwa, styled by HarvellaStyles, rocked the dress in South Africa over the weekend as she had dinner with friends. She gave the look a more sexy feel as she rolled up her sleeves and had the sides taken in to make it slimmer.

Which look is your fave?

    A busy dress with busy shoes. It would have also looked better if Toke had gone a size up. Dakore (without the trousers.)

    Dakore Of cause.

    I prefer Dakore’s look but I think it’s her happy smiley face as against Toke’s dark kinda haunted look that influenced my choice. I don’ know sha.

    Toke’s shoe doesn’t speak to me?, such a dramatic shirt shouldn’t be paired with an overly dramatic pump. IMO

  • jhennique March 14, 2016 at 10:51 am

    Toke looks somehow

  • Kagiso March 14, 2016 at 11:14 am

    None! Toke messed up the look with the shoes and Dakore with the pants and shoes

      Thank you for dis your honest comment, the dress or shirt dress is a NO on both. Dakore should have lost the pants, and Toke, please one size up and loose the shoes. The shirt/dress is way too busy to be paired with anything but a strap sandal. Money miss road for you both..

    Looks good on Toke but her pose is just wrong.

  • Okada man March 14, 2016 at 11:37 am

    Dakore all the way! Toke be like call girl.. hehehe

    Simple! in this look Dakore represents “Classy” and Toke represents “Trashy” . They both dress up nicely to suit these characters. For me Classy wins over Thrash anyday . Lol

      What a completely classless thing to say given that it is very possible you do not personally know the characters of these two women. Your comment does give us a glimpse of your ‘classiness’ or otherwise.

    Nobody abeg. The print is so busy, they should have opted for slinky heels and minimal styling in general.

  • Majestic March 14, 2016 at 12:27 pm

    It would have been Dakore if she hadn’t worn the trousers….Cause it gave her this slimmer and taller frame plus the sandals are perfect!
    But Toke looks sturdy and stout…a look I don’t think she was gunning for.

  • babygiwa March 14, 2016 at 12:34 pm

    Dakore, of kez! Classy.
    Aunty Toke, I like you but not everytime show bra or boobs na?

  • Lagos is my home March 14, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    The dress is already busy, Toke shoes should have been plain design to go well

  • I said so March 14, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    This toke and her tiny breasts sef!must she flaunt them all the time? Abeg she should shift. Dakore would have scored multiple points without the pants under,ofcourse.

    Those of u who keep hating on TOKE. ….hw do u pple sleep aat night……smh… it envy or witchcraft chaiiii

  • DEAR TOKE March 14, 2016 at 9:02 pm

    dear toke, enough with these poses please..they make your body shape look very odd. also learn to smile, imagine how different that photo would have looked if you just smiled

  • Emerald March 15, 2016 at 3:04 am
