BN Red Carpet Fab: FAB Night Out 2010

 on

The inaugural FAB Night Out – Fashion, Music and Awards event took place this past weekend on Sunday 5th of December 2010.
BN will be bringing you all the scoop on the runway fashion and who grabbed those FAB Awards tomorrow.
Today,we are focusing on the red carpet!

We were so excited by what we saw on the FAB ‘Black Carpet’ and this was for one major reason!
So many young stylistas and gentlemen were rocking pieces from young Nigerian designers. Many of these designers have not released their first official collections but did us proud on the FAB black carpet.
We spotted pieces by Babushka, Uyai, Wana Sambo, April by Kunbi, Iamisigo, Onyx & Pearl and Viv La Resistance and many more.

***
We spotted blogger Adaku Ufere (http://thirdworldprofashional.blogspot.com/) in this grecian-inspired look by Babushka. Adaku totally ‘committed’ to the look – from the white draped maxi with its gold-sequined shoulder detail to her gold armband, flat slippers and centre-parted swept up hair. It could have looked ‘costumey’ but it worked!

All through 2010,  Gideon Okeke has given us different iterations of the geek look. At the FAB event, Gideon brought it once again with his thick rimmed glasses, plaid bow tie and waistcoat paired with a pink shirt and maroon trousers. Gideon is a handsome lad and we love spotting him on the red carpet, however we hope Gideon will switch things up next year.

Valerie Dawodu rocked this look from Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi’s Reflet de Lumiere collection for Vlisco which debuted at the AAIS fashion show in Abuja a few months ago. She paired the dress with a statement necklace, nude heels and voluminous curls! Eleanor Goodey looked pretty in a lace dress with a bold black bow belt paired with black accessories.

Love this look for Funke Obruthe! Honeycomb print shift dress from Jewel by Lisa’s new Global Minimalism collection. Love the shoe choice as well!

Designer Chichi Iyiegbuniwe always embraces individuality on the red carpet. She is never predictable. For the FAB event, Chichi chose to go for the bright and bold look. We love her multicoloured volumized  skirt with the large bow.

Nana Kay

The last time we spotted young designer, Wana Sambo on the red carpet, it was at the House of Nwocha launch and she was rocking a red dress. Seems as though Miss Sambo loves the colour of passion as she  wore another floor-length red dress from her soon-to-be released label at the FAB event.

Designer Mo Alatise has a rebellious streak when it comes to fashion. For her label, Viv La Resistance, she always experiments with fabrics – for her FAB Night Out look, Mo rocked a purple lace dress. We love the tulip cut of the skirt.

We see so many fashionistas going for the edgy look on the red carpet that it is sometimes refreshing to see something ‘simple and pretty’ – Ezinne Alfa‘s grey and black striped skirt paired with a black chiffon top and grey shoes topped off with pale pink lippy is the perfect girly chic look for the red carpet.

Joke Saro‘s look is definitely not basic black! Her long sleeved shift dress paired with black platform heels  is simple yet chic. Her blue shoulder bag and smile brighten the look.

Animal prints (done well!) always creates a sensation on the red carpet. Aisha Bello rocked an asymmetrical animal print dress yet kept it young and sassy by pairing it with playful accessories and a red pout.

    Many of the looks were interesting and while there are people who get big fat nos from me (lady with the brown wig, let’s use a mirror please), pretty all through.

    P.S. Does Bobo T have a deadline for turning in his articles? If not, can someone give him one? It’s 5:42 a.m. and I have no class. The only reason I’m up is my Friday issue from him…guy, do quick make I sleep o.

    Banke Meishada Lawal-??????????????????????????????
    Oreka Goodis-That dress was a little too short.
    Rita Dominic-Nice really nice

      December 11, 2010 at 5:36 am

      thats weird…i think rita dominic is looking totally OFF and mo’cheddah is on point. this is one of rita dominic’s worst red carpets, in my opinion. and she needs to do something about her hair, it just looks really bad. like she was shocked with electricity. gosh.

  15. Babs

    December 10, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    Adaku’s outfit looks like a modern piece from the set of an ancient Roman movie…..sits on her well too

  16. Peperempe

    December 10, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    The event looks nice and well attended, most people looked good. This is probably because they barred many Nollywood & Naija music “stars” from inflicting their poor taste on the event. Mocheddah is too fine and Orire is on point. She designs some good clothes that girl.

    Having said that, we have to call out Gideon “Kanye David-West” Okeke , Banke “Mama G in London” Meshida and Dayo “My size of cap no dey market” Ehpraim for bringing down the tone of the evening a bit.

    By the way, this “vintage” kinni neva reach? I mean I understand that “old” is “in” but that Ezinne Chinkata’s outfit looks like something my Aunty Warinma would have rocked for Umuada meetings in the 80’s!

    • ochella

      December 10, 2010 at 2:10 pm

      lol @ umuada outfit had to scroll back to look at it a second time.

    • missK!

      December 10, 2010 at 2:46 pm

      LOL! That Ezinne Chinkata’s outfit had me wondering the same o. Think she pushed the envelope waaay too far wt the vintage thing!

      December 11, 2010 at 9:36 pm

  18. FabChick

    December 10, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    I saw Adaku at that Fab thing! Had no idea she was thirdworldprofashional. The dress looked much better in person sha, the back was really nice.

    Toni Tones looked beautiful too.

    Why does Nicole Chukwueke always wear this same sandals? At every single event? She looks beautiful and her clothes are always great, but babe needs to retire those sandals

    Girl in blonde abi brown fringe, change hair asap!

    • Ojuolape

      December 10, 2010 at 2:31 pm

      Does she look nice or not? Simple. No need to comment on her sandals & “how often she wears them”. It really does not matter if these are the same sandals she wears all the time, in fact I very much doubt that they are; in any case, not the issue at hand. Again… does she look nice or not? Yes she does. End of story.

    • ko-eazy!

      December 10, 2010 at 3:47 pm

      The color of the hair is not that off buh I have to agree it doesn’t suit her!

    I’m not sure how old Ezinne Chinkata is but that dress ages her, looks like one of those stage dresses from 30 years ago

  35. Skiido

    December 10, 2010 at 4:33 pm

    The ladies all looked fabulous just not sure what the following ladies are thinking…
    Ada Ogunkeye…I know you were reaching for eclectic but that didn’t work quite right…no coordination here
    Funke Bucknor Obruthe…nah…considering your shape, something a-line would have been more flattering. I have seen you pulled off long flowy a-line dresses

    Michelle Dede ‘s dress would have been uber hot if it were long…floor length.
    Toni Tones …one question for you girl…Why?
    Hahahahha..Banke Meshida Lawal…I expected so much better from you o…haba…whaddaheck?

    Omawunmi…that hair? Hahahhah

    Toyin Badeji…I don’t know …can’t put a finger on it…the dress is cute but maybe for the under 20 chics…just think you are too old for this. I prefer your flowy dress looks

    Nicole…my lovely chickito…we need to wean you off those shoes and that same weave,,ogini

    • nae-nae

      December 13, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    December 10, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    love that dress on chichi nwoko! gorgeous colour and flatters her figure!

    kunbi oyelese looks good in that velvet/akpoche dress. It may have been more flattering on someone with a fuller chest. still fab sha.

    this nicole chukwueke is everywhere! I like her height and she has gorgeous prominent facial features.

    ugonna omeruo is rocking those pink pumps well. get it girl, looking hot!

    toni tones is definitely rocking that low-back, it’s a great mix of naughty & nice!

    lola balogun has gorgeous skin!! damn gurl, smooth like butter!

    aisha bello is wearing that leopard! I thought leopard was an accent print not a full out outfit, but she wears it well.

    omawunmi needs to go home! I don’t care what she’s wearing.

    tonye falughi is sooo pretty!

    ene lawani, nice eyes.

    ezinne alfa has gorgeous skin. Cute skirt! And is she biracial?

    oreka godis is rocking a gorgeous dress. Although, it’s a little too shirt, but still pretty.

    adaku looks divine! a la cleopatra about to have brunch with ceasar.

    December 10, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    Yey!! I like being a fashion police. The following people should be FINED!
    Gideon Okeke – horrible suit altogether, Makida Moka- just looks wrong
    Oreka Godis – too short, I don’t think puffy sleves suit her.
    Rita Dominic – It’s like every time I see her she is always looking wrong, she catches my eye with her horrible weave. She needs to step up her game.
    Gbemi Phillips – love her hair, but the dress is too short, if it was longer it would look better.
    Ada Ogunkeye – clearly some people don’t know how to dress for an AWARDS event. The green headscarf did not
    People who stood out in a GOOD way for me are Valerie Dawodu and Mo cheddah, looked FAB!!

  43. Seiko aka: "Mo sparkles"

    I LOVE Nicole’s outfit. And wow.. this person complaining about nicole in the same weave. 1) And so? 2) Are you smart?? It should have occurred to you that events happen QUITE FREQUENTLY. So tell me whether she is meant to change her weave every week. You must be a special person. Abeg Nicole rock on joh!

      December 17, 2010 at 9:27 am

      what if it’s primark? dont get your point. sometimes you see stars like Madonna rock topshop and H & M. It’s either nice or not. but you know the most interseting thing i want to know, how did you know it’s primark? you most shop there!!!!

    So I was at the fab thingu, and I did my full scoping, some pictures don’t do some people justice sn some people look better than they did at the event because na foto. I shall begin.
    Eni Lawani looked quite wrong on the day

    Makida moka’s dress was a big 0/10

    Rita dominic was the worst offender that night, her whole head was gelled down and whe wore a white suit with hots pants….camaaaaaannnn!!! She was kidding with that out fit surely.
    Wana sambo no comment but not good.
    Ada ogunkeye we are now in 2010 not 1997, the whole get up WRONG, haven’t seen one of those bracelets or ‘armlets’ since the nineties
    Ezinne I usually like but she failed woefully on this account. That dress- no
    Tope abiola, I know you were tryin to promote your tshirt but sorry. Your out was wrong!!! You looked liked you were going to the hair salon after work.
    Isio’s dress was worst offender no.2n it doesn’t look so bad in the pic, but trust me in real life that dress was really awful, it is beyond me how she could have opted for it

    Now onto the real winners of the night, for me t’was Toni Tones, her dress was beautiful. This picture does it no justice, there should have been a pic of front and back, she was best dressed for me,
    No.2 was Tonye Falogbui, she looked lovely, only wished she had worn some heels
    Ezinne (the yellow one) kept it nice simple and lovely
    Gbemi phillips looked better in real life as well, Nana kay looked nice and Adaure didn’t look bad at all.

      Lmao…you are obviously Toni Tones cos errr, you are the same person singing her praises all over the place in that french maid uniform she has own. Give her a dusting brush and an apron and whooomp!she can clean the whole venue

    Hmmn Makida’s dress, definitely out of the norm but I fink she wears it well n is one of the few that have the youthful vibrant look on the ‘black carpet’

    Love wat nigerians are doing with fashion. Fashion is what looks gud n feels gud 4 me. So my top looks are Wana Sambo, Michelle Dede, Ezinne Alfa…I fink Makida Mokas look is totally age appropiate, rather have her in that dan any drab dress for her simple 18 yrs

    December 11, 2010 at 5:51 am

    i feel like im the only person that feels rita dominic was a BIG NO! WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS! especially the hair weave, its starting to annoy me.
    ezinne alfa looks cute. something about her seems tall and slim, very model-like. I LIKE.
    mo’cheddah….LOVE IT! cute like her soundcity awards dress, loved that one too.
    nicole chukwueke…the sandals killed it! people ruin good outfits with bad shoes.
    Tara Fela-Durotoye…she has a makeup line or something like that, right? because ive never seen her do a good job at promoting it. her makeup is always blah, or here, it looks like she isnt wearing any at all.
    Linda Ikeji could lose the vest. it would take her from a 5.5 to a 7.5
    Omoni Oboli…TOO MUCH MAKE UP MY DEAR! less is more.
    but i do believe a lot of these people look better in person, its probably just the camera being used or the lighting or SOMETHING.
    one thing i will commend these people on is…THE GREAT SUPPORT OF OUR NIGERIAN/AFRICAN DESIGNERS! i love how most people that are rocking designer are rocking Nigerian fashion designers. that means something, and i really love it.
    KEEP IT UP! THANKS BELLA!

      December 11, 2010 at 12:44 pm

      Hahahahhahaha..LWKMD! Even the hair looks like something from 1992. Gloria Anozie killed this dress in that movie sha. But seriously was she on acid when she wore this mess?

    • Jenifa

    Seems it seems like I’m the only one that sees it, well, I’ll say it then…how come EVERYONE in this country is now a designer?!??! most people here are waering clothes designed by either themselves or their friends, and honestly i dont see anything special in these clothes, so can people please move on and get real jobs?!?

    • Skiido

      December 11, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    December 11, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    lmaoooooooooo @ this Kechi person taking Panadol for another persons headache! your statement makes no sense at all. at no point did i say i don’t visit or shop at primark! As for the spelling mistake, if your eyes served its purpose well, you would see that I corrected myself! And because an item of clothing ‘fulfils it purpose’ by covering her ‘nakedness’, that somehow makes it hot? i think not! please think before you type!

  70. Jenifa

    December 11, 2010 at 10:42 pm

    ok was this a costume show? Not sure why Toni Tones will dress like a french maid to a red carpet event…fashion gone wrong in Lagos

  71. RANDOM

    December 11, 2010 at 11:53 pm

    there are sooo many designers out of nigeria now, new names everyday

  72. deedoubleu

    December 12, 2010 at 4:21 pm

    Ezinne is an igbo girl and no she ain’t bi racial and Ms. kechi what was wrong with what spotted said… *or are you vexxed that she spotted a pri-mark skirt or are you a friend of the babe, calm down jare….there’s nothing wrong with wearing a primark skirt am sure you also shop there as well, she wrote that she rocked it! finiti…Meanwhile Nicole Chukwueke in Obsidian, looking nice…… Ada Ogunkeye, wharrido now, tryna look like our neo-soul sisters… but it ain’t working.. Try again as for Wana Sambo.. please babes, you need a make up artist… love your dress, but your make up, no sister it ain’t working..

  78. Stunning

    December 13, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    Why is everybody screaming about Mocheddah’s dress! It’s an absolute HEck NO for me!
    Rita looked lovely
    BAnke MEshida – good Gawd! What on earth possessed her to wear dat.?
    Omoni was a no no for me
    As for d lady with the turban on her head…..God dey o!
    Overall, epic fail except for Rita!

    P:s I don’t see the hype about this KUnbi chick’s designz……from what I’ve seen so far, I wouldn’t buy her dresses.

    valerie dawodu, i’m loving that LDA on you!you look really stunning!!
    Nigerian designers are really making great stuff! i want, i want!

  80. Divasum1

    December 14, 2010 at 11:53 am

    you would have thought that since Ezinne Chinkata is a stylist & all, she would have known better than to wear that dress, which by the way looks horrid on her….Ahh well, duess she dressed in a hurry.

  81. TazaCreations

    December 14, 2010 at 9:34 pm

    Wow, these ladies look fabulous!

  82. olori

    Pls I want 2 ask, what is wrong wit shopping or wearing primark? Don’t get what nigerians have against d brand.

    Emi na, I’m with you. This is great. Some other ladies should note that Nigeria is a third world country. If people can afford YSL, great but if they wear Primark or the same shoes and same weave that’s ok too. If Cheryl Cole repeats outfits, who are we? And who is this Nicole girl? I’ve been reading bad things about her so she must be doing something right.

    Rita Dominic, don’t you have any close friends who could have advised you otherwise? On a good note, I LOOOOOOVE what Omawumi does to that dress!Linda Ikeji, Toni Tones and Nana Kay also get major points in my book for simple chic-with-a-twist.
    oh, and BTW, Merry Christmas, BN!
