BN Red Carpet Fab: 2009 Genevieve Pink Ball



Genevieve Magazine recently hosted Pink Ball. An event aimed at being a platform to raise awareness on breast cancer and raise funds. Nothing beats the explosive combination of a good cause and fashion. And a good day for fashion it was! BN Red Carpet Fab was there to witness it all: the glitz, the glam and the dazzling pink hues that swept the carpet. There was a lot of Pink gorgeousness to last a lifetime, well…maybe just till the next one!

African: These ladies chose to bring forth the divine and richness of African fabrics and textures. The cuts of their dresses absolutely flatter their silhouettes and what an alluring way to go, with the girly and dramatic cuts.  From the tiered dress to the rise and fall hem, these ladies displayed an interesting variety that was every bit  fashionably appealing!

Brights: Who says you can never go any brighter than pink? These ladies add a pop to their dresses, with bright embellishments  and accessories. Silver, gold, sequins and a splash of colours like yellow, orange and turquoise enhance the lush of their pink dresses.

Grand Dames: These ladies have been in the game for so long, they’ve mastered the art of perfection. Constantly expanding fashion boundaries, they never fail to stop the press with their bold elegant pieces!

Nigerian Designer Chic: Nigerian designers were well represented at the Pink ball. From the designers themselves draped in their own wonder garments, to ladies who decided to have a dip into their wonder for the Night! They all deliverd beautiful garments glowing pink while retaining their labels aesthetic!

Short: The short dresses weren’t excluded from the ball and how could they be? We would hate to be denied the chance to admire well manicured nails and super fine legs! Going short they still managed to raise the bar pretty high!


Stars: Big events like this one, aren’t void of the stars. Shining in delicate soft  gowns and grand ones, they swoon the audience with their presence!

    Ok..for me, Bisola Fajemirokun was my best dressed from the pictures shown. The Tiffany amber dresses are all cool as well and some of the short dresses..
    I usually like Deola Sagoe designs but that dress Funmi Iyanda has on is not working for me..tis a bit out there 😀
    I also like Nkiru anumundu (sans the scary face) ‘s look..

    most certainly feeling Funmi’s dress. Please Where can one get the Tifanny Amber dresses and what do they run? How much? Those dresses were on point.

    I felt this article was lacking the usual depth of a Bellanaija event fashion review.

    Okay just went over the attached slideshow and I’m kinda disappointed. I don’t think a lot of the better outfits made it to the showcase. We should have also had a section for the non conformists.

    are you guys sure though because its the same color yes but i believe SATC shoes came with a 41/4 heel and on her they almost look like flats. I’m sure she can afford it as per lagos big girl but mid and low range designers like Steve madden and co like to make good copies of premium designer.

    Post not meant to offend oh.

    i thot she looked okay. A bit underdressed for a ball. I think she shops at nordstrom a lot though LOL! I’ve seen her in a lot of Maggy London and Adrianna Papell dresses. Not that that’s a bad thing. 🙂

    Can I just say Tiffany Amber rocks! The only ppl that stood out for me were Kate Henshaw Nuttal (She’s becoming one of my favs in terms of red carpet looks) and Aisha Babangida was really elegant with a little dash of mystery. All the others…. okay/blah , for me!

    Eeuuww, what is Funmi Iyanda wearing! What’s up with the ashy knees? I don’t care if the shoe is a designers or not, it just does not fit. I am sure shoes made in Aba or Oshodi would have fitted better than that nonsense she has on.

    You must be her friend because I’m sorry going by your “popped theory” she didn’t pop either

    Like Madea would say in her southern accent, “Hell to the Naaaaaaaw.”
    This is a travesty! Some of the outfits rocked, but the majority are fashion disasters of immense proportions from the pits of “what not to wear” hades. I thought Nigerians were more fashionable than this. Now, Bjork and her little pelican around her neck seem like Marchesa next to these ladies. Get it together!

    Why or WHY are there so many FAT Nigerian women? Its becoming quite and epidemic. I mean, we can even cut the older ladies some slacj even though they have no excuse for looking so robust and round but some of these ladies haven’t even had kids and some only one. WTF?? Ladies, exercise is your friend…play with it.

    Manolos or not, she’s not working it and more to the point they don’t look like a good fit for her feet!

    a lot of these women look really good for their age.
    although some of the older women seem to be bleaching (its kinda obvious) they all look stunning. i liked 80% of all the dresses.
    naija babes are hott.
    i wish i was famous in nigeria and i could go to all the red carpets just to get dressed up and posted on the internet.
    NAIJA 4 LIFE!!! 😀

    Nina Garcia said it best: the quickest way to look cheap (for clothing) is short, tight and shiny…. only a few people look decent with Oluchi looking her greatest as always…Where did all the older fat women come from?…the Nkiru lady is scaring the bejesus out of me, STOP BLEACHING ITS STUPID…

    not denying the fact that Grace Egbabe looks sexy for her age,she should also watch what she wears at this stage.such dresses make her look much older,at the same time,it’s too busy.there’s just too much going on there.i’m simply not feeling her looks.generally,some outfits rocked,others were simply overdone.
