Guess who’s back!
We have had so much fun with BN Pick Your Fave this year…our last edition was a “Home vs. International” match which we totally loved. By the way, for us, home always wins!
For this edition, we are shifting the spotlight to Nigerian label, Meena.
The label which is headed by Uju Offiah is just a few months old yet has already made a huge splash. A-List Nigerian celebrities including Ini Edo and Genevieve Nnaji have been spotted in clothing by Meena.
Genevieve Nnaji rocked the blue version of the jumpsuit at the 2011 Future Awards in January 2011. While many had expected Gene to play it safe with a Little Black Dress, she surprised style watchers when she stepped unto the green carpet in this playfully sexy outfit. Silver accessories and a studded black clutch completed her look.
Yes, yes, it is a little bit unfair to compare models with “mere mortals”, after all, it is their job to look fabulous in everything they wear. Model, Oghogho totally “sold” the jumpsuit in the official Meena lookbook. We love how Oghogho’s hair was styled in a plaited updo. She kept the 70s vibe going with peep-toe platform sandals and accessorized with silver bangles.
Blogger/Lawyer, Adaku Ufere was the first person to rock this piece at an event. She attended the Koko Concert in December 2010 wearing the purple version of the jumpsuit. Adaku let her long wavy hair down and accessorized with an embellished cuff and silver rings. Her smoky eye makeup and pink pout complete this bold look.
Ini Edo was styled in Meena pieces for her WOW Magazine cover earlier this year. Ini remarked that her “absolute favourite” look from the shoot was the jumpsuit. Ini showed off her “new” svelte figure and kept the look simple to ensure that the jumpsuit was the focal point. Ini’s fringed hair was pulled back and she accessorized with diamond studs and her wedding/engagement bands.
…So Pick Your Fave
