The Look: Bronze Gloss by Peridot & Ruby



Happy New Year once again!

Thanks for all the comments and feedback that we have received so far. We are adding many new features this year.

One is a daily feature called ‘The Look’. We choose one ‘look’ we LOVE per day and tell you about why we think its fabulous. Might be a brand new photo from a recent event or a classic outfit from one of our Love it or hate it, we’ll love to hear your feedback. ‘The Look’ is not all about ‘celebrities’ or ‘socialites’, if you feel you have the look email us a photo at bella @ bellanaija . com . We’ll love to hear from you and love you even more if your outfit is by a Nigerian designer!

I love this look because its clean and simple yet very glamorous. The cut and design of the dress is very flattering and the bronze fabrics and the embelishments add the wow factor while Lara’s metallic accessessories, flipped hair, sleek makeup and sly smile polish off the look.

    Just to remind you of bella naija blog days…

    I like this look. The best part is its a flawless creation for anyone who hasn’t the perfect figure 8. It looks like it covers a multitude of sins…which is what I need post christmas and new year.

    Beautiful dress, as Sister confused said, the cut allows it hide any wobbly bits. Nice one

    Love the look! Flawless I especially like is she is not sporting some horrendous weave. Ladies, start wearing your own hair. Embrace your beauty and whatever god has blessed you with!! Stop trying to emulate something you are not and that looks absolutely ridiculous! Show some originality, I am so sick of every single black/ african women wearing weaves!

    She looks great in the beautiful dress. And the human hair weave-on is on point. I like the chandelier earrings. Wearing a necklace would have been an overkill. Overall? You go girl!

    Beautiful dress, very simple, chic, classy, and a beautiful woman. I love when women dress covered up, and yet look gorgeous. The color is amazing. Who is the designer?
