Soiree for a New Queen – Moët hosts champagne party for newly crowned Miss Nigeria 2010



On Wednesday, 10th October 2010, Moët & Chandon held an exclusive soiree to celebrate the recently crowned Miss Nigeria 2010 – Damilola Agbajor.

It was the first public appearance for the new queen and she totally relished the spotlight. The event which took place at De Marquee in Victoria Island was well attended by an array of guests including Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria 1991 and MD/CEO of the Miss Nigeria Organisation, Nike Oshinowo-Soleye, MBGN 2004 Anita Iseghohi along with her husband, Tom Iseghohi, TV Producer Bola Balogun, Designer Folake Folarin-Coker, rappers M.I and Naeto C, radio and TV personality Olisa Adibua, Beth Models CEO Elohor Aisien, Designer Ohimai Atafo and many other special guests.

Miss Nigeria, Damilola Agbajor, received a crystallized Jeroboam bottle of Moet & Chandon at the event, which was organized to introduce her to friends and well-wishers in Lagos.
Damilola Agbajor seems to be telling us that she is not your typical beauty queen. No tacky crown and sash, instead she rocked a silver knit dress with a plunging neckline with a diamond detail, peekaboo bikini top  paired  pearl bracelets and black strappy sandals.

Nike Oshinowo-Soleye rocked a midnight blue draped Lanvin jumpsuit from the label’s Spring 2010 Ready to Wear collection. She accessorized with a snakeskin Michael Kors clutch and black Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

As the roving reporter for Studio 53 Extra, Eku Edewor has to attend all the major parties and events yet somehow she always keeps things exciting with her red carpet looks. Here she rocks a simple thin-strap colour block grey and black dress with black sandals.

This is our favourite ever red carpet look from MBGN 2004 Anita Iseghohi. She looks young and vibrant in this yellow mini dress paired with black accessories. Her highlighted hair also gives her look an extra bit of pep!

Understated chic perfectly illustrated by Omoyemi Akerele! Love it. Take notes ladies, this is an excellent ‘work week’ date look. Well tailored high waist black trousers paired with a simple top with an interesting detail such as the sleeves. Voila!

    The MBGN chic is very good-looking but her outfit isn’t the best “first look”. Can’t tell me otherwise.

    • molade

      October 15, 2010 at 8:21 am

      She needs to get herself a stylist! Money doesnt translate to style at all!!!! she cd have looked fab in a high street outfit which wd have literally cost a fraction of her loub boots. sigh

    • Me

      October 15, 2010 at 5:32 pm

      Are these comments not just a bit mean….. She could have worn d boots with shorts or a skirt that’s all to say…no one said boots are for only winter **rolling my eyes**
      BTW Those boots are gorgeous… No one said fashion must always be comfortable…
      if not no one would wear those chandelier earrings which are heavy… no one would wear extremely heeled shoes and no one would wear skinnny jeans… 🙂

    • Kilonsparkles

      October 17, 2010 at 1:11 am

      Actually @ me, the comments are not mean. The shoes are nice, but she is wearing a biker jacket and long pants. The boots don’t go with the outfit at all.

    Huh? What on earth is Miss Nigeria wearing? Yea it’s nice she’s not wearing the tacky crown et all but cammann. And the girl wearing the boots; because they are Louboutin’s does not excuse the fact that wearing boots in Nigeria just looks weird(read razz)..*shrug*

    Most of the other people look fab 🙂

    • Bunje

      October 15, 2010 at 3:54 am

      Not only boots, but the entire ensemble is wrong.

    the new miss nigeria(queen ambassador) can be at top of every best dressed list in nigeria.all she needs to do is to give me a call.pardon the lady wearing the loubous,she desperately needed an occasion to show it off!!!!

    Eku Edewor,
    Quick question for you. Is there such a thing as over-exposure? How come do you get to appear in any and every event in Naija?

    • CC

      October 15, 2010 at 11:41 am

      It’s her job? why u dey beef the girl?

  20. olusola

    Eku is a reporter for social events oooo!!! She goes there to cover the events and bring it to viewers across Africa on MNET’s Studio 53 extra….It’s just her job – having way too much fun!
    Not feeling the Winter ensemble, The Miss Nigeria looks better now than when I first say her….younger I mean…and I am not totally feeling her outfit! Since she was the belle of the ball, she should have been dressed like the belle….I guess there are people responsible for her get-up and she does not totally decide…. Nike looks more like the belle to me!

    • fokasibe

    u peeps leave jennifer biko…it’s all about individualism and self confidence. If you are bold enough to make a fashion statement kudos, if not then take a back seat. The saying goes..if you can’t beat them, then join them.. 😉

    October 15, 2010 at 10:08 am

    The lady in the yellow dress was by far the best dressed person at the event.

    October 15, 2010 at 10:13 am

    What’s there to beat and to join? The miss Naija could have looked beta. Nice smile elohor. Eku is looking good and her job sure is a whole lot of fun. Loving Jania’s pants and shoes and marriage sure looks good on Anita – my bit.

    October 15, 2010 at 12:24 pm

  31. niyoo

    October 15, 2010 at 12:38 pm

    ‘our’ queen’s outfit is a no no! not right for d occassion esp as she’s ‘da queen’ and d celebrant! abeg she no try o, and if she ddnt know someone like nike should have told her! and i hate her sandals! eewwh! or maybe its her feet dat dont do the sandals any justice..and as someone said, jennifer just needed to show off her outfit. guess she was tayad of looking at the stuff in her closet. pls pardon her 🙂

    October 15, 2010 at 3:10 pm

    If these are Nigeria`s most fashionable then we have DEFINITELY lost it.Nothing screams style to me.It goes a long way to prove that you can neither buy style nor can`t wish it.

    Miss Nigeria looks lovely here, better than she did in her winning gown if I may say so.
    I don’tlike that her bra is shoing in front tho.
    the texture of her gown is questionable but it does flatter look good on her.
    the shoe however is another story, bad choice! she should have worm covered-toe pumps

    NikeOshinowo looks fantastic, I mean this outfit does her justice!
    Elohor is glowing, baby mama is glowing!

    The beauty queen is pretty but her outfit was a really poor choice.I’m all for thinking outside the box but she should have exercised more caution.She really looks inappropriate.Nike Osinowo as her Chaperone should have paid a little more attention.

    October 16, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    there’s a difference between mbgn and miss nigeria. the organisers of the event are totally different.
    she’s miss nigeria not mbgn like someone said.

  44. Kilonsparkles

    October 17, 2010 at 1:14 am

    IMO they need to assign miss naija to a good designer. Get her nice brazilian hair, nice pumps and at least a chanel purse to start with.

    • itk

      u are very smart h. yep brazilian hair on a miss nigeria is how God planned for it to be.

    October 18, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    You guys can hate, dang. Fashion doesn’t pander to winter or summer or any other season for that matter. If the look is hot it can work anytime. Jen has a very individual dress sense, which is more than can be said for all the copycat identikit girls out there, tricked out looking exactly the same.

    October 19, 2010 at 2:29 pm

    Adaku try to be a good friend. From d pics of u i have seen, u look well dressed most of the times.
    Now try to be a good friend and help her put the fabulous exensive stuff together in a way that looks good. Be honest she does look silly in the damn biker jacket and boots in the hot naija weather.
    ok go and google jenifer obayuwana at the muazu wedding and tell me what that fuckery was about with the shoes that looked like they were made from as0-oke.
    pls just help her by styling her and dnt be unnecessarily defensive.

    October 20, 2010 at 7:52 am

    good example of how we have things back to front in Naija: Mango store sale/shopping night, present, past beauty queens attend in full regalia. 1st event/outing for current Miss Nigeria, she turns up in beach & knitwear! Sigh…

    ladies looking simple and sassy
    Jenifa looks like she’s dressed to go into space, I don’t get the whole idea..
    Angela Adebayo looks so adorable and on point I must add
    & the peagent queen, she’s beautiful but she ain’t working it right in that outfit….
    Naeto C doing it the African way, bet he wanted a break away from the Western look.

    November 10, 2010 at 10:08 am

    i witnessed the show life and from where i was sitting the judges were not even recording anything the pageant was a farce. i believe they already knew their winner even before the finals. don’t you see that she didn’t even look remotely surprised when they said her name as the winner and when they crowned her, the crown actually fell twice. i am really disappointed and in my opinion they should do it again this time with all 36 contestants but with different organizers or better still, it should be cancelled. we need honesty in Nigeria

  60. JOHN

    November 10, 2010 at 10:18 am

    as for her fashion sense well what do you expect.

  61. naya

    October 9, 2011 at 11:41 am

    i think Miss Nigeria is a simple person so let her be but her bra strap showing is bad who is her designer.

    November 14, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    Abeg, our queen no try at all, beauty queens are dressed in a very unique way that when you sighted at one you will see that queen/model in her, any way maybe she has her own personal reason for dressing like that…
