    that eku chic should blend her makeup better, and enough with the red lipstick. FIRST !!!!

    • chichi April 1, 2011 at 3:23 pm

      yeah she looked great from the neck down

  • Yetunde April 1, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm a bit of a tough decision

  • Tiki April 1, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    Wheeeee, first! Now for some voting…

    • Asake Tokyo April 1, 2011 at 3:22 pm

      The AMAKA where art thou!!!!

  • Tiki April 1, 2011 at 3:20 pm

    Bella, Bella! I thought you were gonna stop mixing casuals and formal and asking us to vote who looks better?How do u measure Tiwa Savage in tights to Eku Edewor in Tsemaye Binite? Please be fair na, some of these pics will not get the consideration they deserve!

    • Omo aus Deutschland April 3, 2011 at 12:59 pm

      Thank you, Tiki! How can one pick best dressed between evening gowns and jeans?! I thought Bella was past mistakes like these. Thanks, but no thanks! I’ll pass!

  • FOXY April 1, 2011 at 3:20 pm

    yeeee 1st to comment, nice outfits, the girl in the last picture stole the sho,she looks effortlessly classy…

  • Tyna April 1, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    thy ar all beautiful bt i prefer d last gal on black. she gt nice and sexy legs…… for me she rock

  • Duvy April 1, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    I love the last girl’s outfit… Its a pity she is tagged”guest” Bella Lets get her name…
    She looks great… I think the only other person who is up to her standards is Yemisi Fajimolu at the Nigerian Idol Finale.

    • Obi April 2, 2011 at 2:07 am

      Totally agree with you. Yemisi was my vote. I think Eku got the most votes cos she’s one of the more popular/ well known ladies. Not that she didn’t look good. just not the best looking on the list.

    • Sexybun April 4, 2011 at 4:35 am


  • Tripcreation April 1, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    I love Eku Edewor’s dress. Very fluid and chic.

  • Disbabe April 1, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    The last girl gets my vote..Please what’s her name? Guest is not a name lol she will be upset to see herself named as Guest someone find her name please

  • Kilonsparkles April 1, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    Wana Sambo. Eku’s make-up ruined it. First time I’ve seen her looking anything but perfect

  • Bleadu April 1, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    Eku, classy, elegant and the best dressed!

  • LYNN April 1, 2011 at 4:32 pm


  • TSC April 1, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    Hey – people seem to be forgetting the daytime looks. Loving Sasha in her ‘Oleku-style’ iro and buba – has my vote for the top day look. Agree the ‘guest’ in black scores top marks for her nighttime look. Love Eku’s dress but her make-up looks a bit off.

  • eye-TEE-kay April 1, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    guess at AMFW 11 (daytime) is Jennifer Umeh 🙂

  • Nicole April 1, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    I love Eku Edewor!! She’s always sure of how to pull off her outfits on the red carpet. she knows when to wear heavy jewelries and when to keep it simple.
    she’s my fashion icon on the red carpet!! Tres Glamour

  • :) April 1, 2011 at 4:59 pm


  • Yuds April 1, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    Eku’s makeup isn’t flattering but that dress is absolutely gorgeous. Somewhat used the word fluid! I couldn’t have said it better. She looks graceful!

  • Kemchi April 1, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    IMO, the daytime award goes to Sasha and Jennifer Umeh. The nighttime award goes to Lola and the guest in black, but I have only one vote hmmmmmm………..Abi Bella, can I vote as many times as I want to? As per naija election style 🙂

  • Straight4ward April 1, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    Eku looks stunning in that outfit…she nailed it.

  • maryjane April 1, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    d make-up on eku aint right so i think she doesnt deserve it! d guest in d last pic has really put it together, right!

  • Stunning April 1, 2011 at 6:17 pm

    eku…….without the make up of course.

  • Boss April 1, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    And the award goes to Ojy Okpe anytime any day that chick is hottttt!!!!

  • partyrider April 1, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    Nadia Buhari

  • CHickalaka April 1, 2011 at 6:40 pm

    Helen Jennings and Lolade for Daytime and Eku regardless of her make up and the silver bag, the dress is amazing and she has a good figure to carry it well. Also the last lady that looks a lot like Toni Braxton!

  • itir April 1, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    “Guest” looks fab

  • i like i like April 1, 2011 at 6:43 pm

    i was going through the pictures and was like…”hmm ok this is nice”….”oh nooo this better”….”umm maybe this could be the best”. but when i got to Eku’s pic i was like WHOAAAAA!! Eku is the best dressed. she always looks on point but this is the best i’ve seen her. The dress is like a glass of champagne and she looks like a statuette in it so her make up complements the look really well.

  • Porsche April 1, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    OJY !!! stunning as usual, you are a Super Model and u dress like one, ur simply the best

  • Ready April 1, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    I love the disclaimer “Let’s keep it positive and light”…they know how some of us roll..hehe. IMO, we had better choices last month…it was so hard to pick then, this was pretty much a no-contest. Eku’s makeup wasn’t blended, but her ombre dress was stunning. Her and Sasha’s outfits were the only ones that blew me away.

  • Miss ATL April 1, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    YEMISI OR EKU (from the neck down)

  • Nneoma Nwaogu April 1, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Ojy’s outfit is STUNNING!!! Looks gorgeous too.

  • Candie April 1, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    Eku looks elegant in that gown , however, her Clutch doesn’t go with her outfit so i vote for Helen Jennings. Awesome combination, took a big risk with the colors but she pulled it off. I believe fashion is all about mix and match. My other favorite is Temi Dollface Phil-Ebosie. Good job.

  • cindy April 1, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    mosdef its ojy. dress is cool as ice. her simplicity so porwerful. this one na lady O!

  • zeze April 1, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    Lolade Cardosa is simple and oh so so chic

  • Amaka April 1, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    My favorite are Eku and Ojy Okpe they both look gorgeous in white

  • joy April 1, 2011 at 10:14 pm

  • xxx April 1, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    Eku Edewor.. Duh. This is a no-brainer

  • Roli April 1, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    daytime= Lolade Cardoso- o so effortlessly chic
    evening= eku edewor- breathtaking! (the guest in the one-shouldered black dress comes a close second)

  • Dith April 1, 2011 at 11:39 pm

    Genevieve, Tiwa in the lime green, Omawunmi, Eku edewor, Ojy Ekpo, the “guest” at the award at the bottom and Nadia. pheww!
    All looked fab!

  • bisoye April 1, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    Yepa! The “guest” looks hot!! Then Tiwa savage looks beautiful in Bridget Awosika. Gorgeous dress choice and color on her and of course eku in Tsemaye Binite.Love the fit on her. Flawless! Her make up is probably from the runway so quit hating people and finally ojy okpe! Soooo cute!

  • Ify April 2, 2011 at 12:08 am

    My favorite are Eku and Ojy Okpe. They both look gorgeous in white

  • kumzy April 2, 2011 at 12:08 am

    not really feeling the Eku dress…think tina savage does it for me

  • Olivia April 2, 2011 at 12:17 am

    Eku, Ojy, Nadia and the last ‘Guest’. Bella, pls may you put them in distinct categories: CASUAL, FORMAL/EVENING….?? Its kindda like mixing agbalumo and

  • Adenike Royals April 2, 2011 at 2:20 am

    Love Tiwa Savage dress by Bridget Awosika…….the color is on point
    Lydia Forson on point, she picked the right dress for her shape and size….big, bold and beautiful ladies learn from her….wear your size and find out what fit you.
    Love the color combination of Helen Jennings minus the shoe color
    Eku Edewor gown….thumbs up,

  • wendu April 2, 2011 at 2:55 am

    I will take the guest…the last lady

  • THE AMAKA April 2, 2011 at 5:17 am

    YEMISI DOES IT FOR ME! Eku is soooo overrated, come on guys. we know we’ve all seen so much better from her.

  • Helen April 2, 2011 at 9:36 am

    Evening – Eku & Lydia Forson & yemisi ((all ties for me)
    Daytime – jennifer&Ojy
    Casual- Temi & genevieve

  • Dammie April 2, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    sooo hard to choose! So many lovely looks.

    Tiwa savage in Bridget Awosika stands out for me…I am in love with the Bridget Awosika collection so maybe I’m biased.

  • dlapikin April 2, 2011 at 6:48 pm

    Lydia Forson and Eku Edewor had the best dresses. Now Eku ruined it with bad make-up.

  • missy April 2, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    first five are: eku(1st) then followed by the guest and then lolade cardoso and then sasha and then anyone else 🙂

  • tanya April 3, 2011 at 7:38 am

    Lolade & Guest for day and night looks respectively.Eku is a very close second, the make-up might appear as it does due to bad lighting.

  • clara aleogena April 3, 2011 at 7:40 am

    Eku,girl u rock and dat is how a fashionsta shld look like

  • dj April 3, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    lolade and eku look stunning. so do Gen and omowunmi

  • bunmi April 4, 2011 at 2:23 pm

    I totally agree with Tiki, Bella I think there should be a proper/fair shuffling of all the looks…btw, I saw Eku that night at AFW and instantly I thought Angelina Jolie… Lovely look, she rocked it.

  • anitttta April 4, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    Eku and the Jennifer Umeh

  • congo April 4, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    guest and Eku looks are totally hollywood kind.i lv

  • Fairy Godsister April 5, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    Loved Eku’s dress the most but with the make up she looked like a mannequin, honest! I chose Lola Cardoso, she looked flawlessly chic… Everyone looked really pretty though, loved that the dress the full figured lady wore complemented her (ladies lets take note o)

  • tosin April 6, 2011 at 7:47 am

    i love Wana Sambo’s outfit. very classy. and sasha also looks different from her usual look

  • segzy April 6, 2011 at 7:54 am

    wana sambo and tiwa savage

  • pj April 7, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    Whao weldone BN Crew, for the daytime glam i would say Helen Jennings, she blended the colours well, accessories moderate and the outfit was right for the event. my night time glam will definitely be the last lady. Please try and get her name. She is effortlessly glam, beauty is the word. She looks like someone from hollywood. She bared some flesh though but still suited her. her make up was moderate, her outfit was well accessorised and she carried the outfit properly. I would have voted for Misi Molu, however she didn’t look comfortable in the outfit. I watched the show and she didn’t look confident at all

  • E MCG April 7, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    pls bellanaija..i’ll love to meet the last lady is she a nigerian?i need her contact plss

  • Nk April 8, 2011 at 11:28 am

    I don’t know who the last person is!!… but she sure took my VOTE!! 100%

  • Adiya April 8, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    Oh MY!! This is difficult. I don’t even know who to pick!!

  • Claire April 9, 2011 at 3:11 am

    Ojy looks pretty put together so simple and i love her hair.

  • EGUANA kampala April 9, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    ellen jennings, sasha and Eku do it for me though even guest gets an honourable mention. Eku’s makeup almost messed it for her though shes lucky her dress is just too awesome

  • sclasy April 12, 2011 at 5:21 pm

    d guest is da best dressed 4 mi…..dats d last pic
    love d blak 1sided styled dress

  • Nina April 15, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    ‘Guest’ in black gets my vote!

  • floren April 17, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    sexy lady in black,got all my VOTE!!!

  • monica aromire April 18, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    Apart from my cousin , who shall remain nameless and my friend’s sister , both look AMAZING !!!! The only Fashionista who always gets’ it right whatevert the season is Nadia Buari check out the black slinky outfit which compliments her figure so nicely , which she wore at the Face2FaceAfrica Awards. Maybe she might need to teach some of us a thing or two !

  • jackilicious April 20, 2011 at 12:57 pm

    Dunno wat all the bouhaha is about Eku’s dress … Tiwa Savage in Bridget Awosika& that “guest” beats her a million times over… And OF COS for daytime look… Helen nailed it to a T… And err that guest “WHAT IS HER NAME o?”
