Pick Your Fave



Wow! It has been a while since the last BN Pick Your Fave!
This one has all the elements that we love: One of our fave labels – Jewel by Lisa, an international spin and of course a totally fabulous statement piece.
This ruched skirt by Jewel by Lisa is such a luxe statement piece. The ankara panels and “bandage” effect definitely has the WOW factor.


As we now know, JBL has gone international – with celebrities including Solange and Kelis rocking pieces from the label. E! News presenter Catt Sadler wore the skirt on the show last week. She paired it with a slinky tank top and a waist clinching belt. It is hard to believe that Catt is a mum of 2 with that tiny waist line! She completed her look with black platform pumps.

The yummy mummys are definitely inspiring us to keep looking hot after babies. Mother of 5, Bola Balogun looked stunning and statuesque at the 2011 ARISE Magazine Fashion Week in Lagos. She paired her ruched JBL skirt with a silk shirt and bandage heels in the same colour. Her fringed hairstyle added a stylish edge to the look.

Eku Edewor gave this skirt its debut at the Sax Appeal event in 2010. Jewelette Eku always rocks the label so well. She paired the skirt with a graphic print top also by JBL and a statement necklace. Eku pulled her hair into a clean ponytail and completed her look with dressy black wedges.

So…Pick Your Fave

    it wud hav bin btwn catt sadler and bola balogun, bt Bola’s shirt doesn’t drape well. Eku’s sandals are not quite there, so i’ll go with Catt sadler. It’s such a cool skirt.

      My sentiments exactly. Catt Sandler rocked it better.

    Bola Balogun. Mother of 5 and still looking hot. Definetely an inspiration

      My thots exactly!!!!


    July 8, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    Even though i prefer curvy women but i prefer Catt sadler’s look over all, Eku looked nice but the matching top just threw me off, she should have paired the patterned skirt with a plain top or vice versa, patterns everywhere don’t work too well for me unless it’s a short dress, as for Bola Bolagun, nice figure for a mother of five but that maam

  14. show some love

    July 8, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    i guess she looking hot is probably why she is always pregnant. Her husband can’t help himself lol

    Catt wore it better, the look seems to fit a fitted top, and well paired with a nice curly bang. Big ups! Lisa….

  25. lola2

    July 8, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    I hace always said, that prints such as ankara are a bit too much to wear head to toe so it’s better worn with a plain top or bottom. The ‘E’ Girl nailed it!

    Sorry about my awful typo!

  29. Kemchi

    July 8, 2011 at 2:44 pm

    Catt definitely wore it best. Her accessories are on pt, but then again perhaps she had professional help putting it together. Bola B also looks good!

  30. Tiki

    July 8, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    Eku’s combo is just too busy, I can’t focus properly on the skirt (plus her sandals didn’t make the cut).Bola has the best shoe match, but the shirt just takes the outfit from fab to drab so…Catt Sadler it is for me.

  31. sassycassie

    July 8, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    definitely eku!

  38. Mide

    Mom of 5 definitely gets my vote! Wow…. She looks fabulous!

  41. tezy

    July 8, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    definately looks best on catt sadler.. the second lady’s shirt is not working for me and eku’s shoes spoils the whole oufit.

  42. Molly

    July 8, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    All 3 ladies wore it well, for me Eku Edewor wore it best…

    How do the American celebrities get items from the Jewel by Lisa label and the rest of us in the US or UK can’t… even after trying to contact the label

    PS: BN would like to see more of the great fashion and style you are known for presenting… it’s been a bit quiet lately, u know we depend on u for our fashion fix 🙂

  43. swexyk

    July 8, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    The lady in the Middle rock it better………..

  49. Oloju come and do

    July 8, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    5kids???????? 2 sets of twins and 1 or what?! Bola, you rooooccccck!!! High five. With one, I’m screaming and you have 5?

    Bola wins.

  50. seanini

    July 8, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    I cant believe Bola Balogun is a mother of 5 kids wow she looks gorgeous.anyway Bola did justice to the skirt by pairing it with a white shirt cos the skirt is busy,2ndly the white lady and for Eku am saying a big nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

  51. PJ

    July 8, 2011 at 8:00 pm

    For me its definitely Eku, she rocked it

  52. Fab junkies

    July 8, 2011 at 9:04 pm

    U guys ve said it all.
    Eku’s print on print didnt work,she shlda gone with a plain top n d shoes NO. Bola’s bat wing shirt is not right for dis bandage skirt,she gets a plus for being a mum of 5 tho. Catt wins,as much as i wanted one of my African sis to win dis.

  53. ak

    July 8, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    Catt Sadler for me

  54. sugaar

    July 8, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    Catt! Catt! Catt! Go JBL!

  55. Obi

    July 9, 2011 at 1:04 am

    Eku hands down. The other two ladies look lovely too but Eku wore it best for me.

  56. myHairmyBeauty

    July 9, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    mother of 5??? and still slim and GORG? Bola Balogun you are my HERO! Real Talk! I hate Catt’s top, it looks like a dirty white tank top, but I LOVE her JBL skirt and the fit. Eku looks nice, Bola’s skirt is nice as well. JBL is soo AWESOME!

  57. ekenganwanetang

    July 9, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Eku,what were you thinking.not no no

  58. Omotoyosi

    July 9, 2011 at 11:40 pm

    I’ll definitely pick my cousin…… Mother of five and still looking 20…… She rocks

  59. Deola

    July 10, 2011 at 2:59 am

    they all pulled off the skirt….but I love the looks of Bola Balogun.

  60. Me2me

    July 10, 2011 at 4:19 pm

    I like Bola’s outfit, real mature. Catt also looked good but i if im open below i should be covered above. As for Eku, i know d whole colour thing is in vogue but this one, mba oo especially with dat shoe

  61. Bolanle

    July 11, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    Eku wore it best. i like the way she teamed it up with a graphic top! it shows good styling. the other two play it safe with the tops they chose!

  62. amischa

    July 11, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    My vote goes to catt saddler nice colour choice, and the dress sits pretty on her nicely,”he Mother of Five”thats rather surprising, a whole lot of work went in, to maintain that body, kudos to her, Eku Edewor choice was rather lame, its actually a fashion nono, to combine top prints with skirts prints, she should have mixed it up, with a plain design top, and i also dont agree with her choice of shoes

  63. amischa

    July 11, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    my vote goes out to cat saddler, nice choice of colour, and the tank top clearly fits the skirt, which does a lot to expose her frame, 2nd choice goes to bola balogun, the white shirt doesnt quite do it for me, i felt it was too sloppy and didnt jst fit, the colour thou, was really great, for Eku Edewor, it was a disaster, prints with designs should never be combined like that, it should have been worn with a plain design with tiny details and also bad choice of shoes

  64. hils

    July 11, 2011 at 4:56 pm

    It’s definately Catt for me, she looks stunnning…then Bola…Eku’s getup is a bit busy….

  65. Alladdin

    July 11, 2011 at 11:20 pm

    bola of course! followed by d E! girl…..eku nt quite…

  66. lamiloly

    July 12, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    catt sadler definitely rocked it best

  67. Orexy

    July 12, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    Catt wore it best by keeping it very simple with a tank top and light jewellery, big ups to Bola, she does look good for a mother of five, but the shirt is kind of too much for the skirt.
    Eku, always beautiful, but matchy matchy is not always great looking except it’s in block colours and I think that huge chunk of jewellery around her neck is not appropriate for a bejewelled dress.

  68. Orexy

    July 12, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    Catt wore it best by keeping her jewellery very simple. Big ups to Bola, but that shirt is a sort of anti-climax to ur overall look. Eku always looks beautiful, but matchy matchy isn’t always a good way to dress, and what’s with that huge chunk of jewellery around her neck?

  69. Makzy

    July 13, 2011 at 11:11 am

    Catt Sadler rocked it soooo well

  70. rjay

    July 14, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    eku what? print on print is a complete fashion faux paux, except in certain fabrics. catt sandler is the girl for this piece, the top is the bomb ,the shoes OMG…..nice combo jare

  71. oma910

    September 30, 2011 at 12:04 pm

    moda of 5(omg) and i havent got any yet…>catt wore it best….but Bola B…….jaw drops\.\.\.\.
