      I wonder for them o.Black suede pumps=YSL. Y’all kill me.So many shoes designers have this style.They could be Steve madden for all you know.Cos Steve madden (and even Calvin Klein) has exactly the same style.

    look at them. no one is even talking about the exhibition, it is only who wore what they’re concerned about.
    so what really is this exhibition about, are the photos for sale? nothing captivating about the photos, don’t understand the essence.

    • me again

      October 26, 2010 at 11:45 pm

      love the pink/salmon dress with the “YSL” (lol) shoes

    Like so many BN loyalists, I too am in love with fashion but I do find it a little disturbing that the ‘YSL shoe’ issue is even a topic of dicussion and not some of the exhibition’s images. Our love of fashion and people watching is blinding us. The photo of the young boy pointing what appears to be a piece of wood or something shaped like a gun at his companion’s head is disturbing. This is far more disturbing that Wunika’s ill-fitting romper, the price of a Birkin and how long it takes to get one. So many of us have the abililty to spot Cartiers, J12s and classic Chanel bags in crowded rooms and in the fuzziest event photos. Surely we can use these eyes to see what is happening in many parts of our beloved Mama Africa and be proactive in addressing some of our continent’s problems. Rocking Gucci ready-to-wear and Louboutins is simply not going to feed, clothe and educate our brothers and sisters

    Nigeria…where the ‘rich’ get dressed up to go and look at the everyday realities of their fellow struggling country men ART! Wait a minute…that’s just the world.

    I concur zimbutterfly…but I had to laugh first. Love BN readers all sorts in the bunch.

    Bukky. I did not intend to offend anyone with my comment. In relation to your question about what I am doing to save Nigeria- I, a mere mortal, can not save Nigeria and neither can you. I have made and continue to make my contributions in various ways to my homeland (Zimbabwe) but this is not the forum to discuss me.
