Rockin’ with Genevieve Magazine in July 2011 – Ghanaian Star Jackie Appiah on the cover & Photos from the Luxurious Spa Day



The July 2011 issue of Genevieve Magazine features Ghanaian actress Jackie Appiah on the cover.

The edition features one of our favourite photo spreads featuring Jackie – for the photoshoot, Jackie was styled by Genevieve Magazine fashion editor Ohimai Atafo. Ohimai selected glam pieces from the Duchess Boutique and Nigerian designer, Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi. Jackie’s interview covered all facets of her career and her life journey from Canada to Nigeria. The only “off-limit” topic was Jackie’s husband and son.

Here is an excerpt from the feature;

Jackie Appiah – Rocking Her Roles
Jackie Appiah is a tough-skinned and vastly talented actress who has been riding the crest waves of career success since winning AMAA Best Actress in a supporting role in 2007. Yet off screen she is a surprisingly reluctant diva.

“I’m a shy person and don’t like talking a lot. But once the director says ‘action’, a whole new me comes to surface,” she confesses.

Unlike most actresses, she says her dreams are less about breaking Hollywood than boosting the African movie industry through her acting talents and brand the continent positively.

There are lots of interesting features and articles in this issue of Genevieve. One of our faves is the “Impersonation” style feature.
Styletitude recreated the signature looks of 5 Nigerian musicians – Nneka, Sasha, Asa, Goldie and Omawumi. How many seconds did it take you to figure out who is who?

Genevieve Magazine hosted a “Relax, Refresh, Rejuvenate” Spa Day at the B Natural Spa in Lagos. Guests including celebrities, business executives and entrepreneurs enjoyed the luxurious spa treatments at B Natural and then mini-lectures by nutritionist – Sherese Ijewere and Cardiovascular Specialist – Dr Adeyemi Johnson.

    why did styletitude use a bigger girl for Sasha and a skinny girl for Omawumi? I recognized Nneka and Asa in milliseconds.

    How many years ago did ini take thisphoto. They should have given her the chance to at least go thru her metamorphosis of applying her mac make up. They caught her off guard and her face ______________ fill in the blanks. This is not a great pics of Ini. And Stephanie wore that dress in a movie.

    No ma’am! Day spa with those weaves? It’s called humidity darlings. See as Steph dey like giant afro-puff. And my poor Ini. This is why I chose to lose weight the old fashioned way…under the knife! If you’re too lazy to exercise, then it will/has already come back. O well sha.

    Whoa! Double take @ Vanessa. Is that “real/real looking” hair in Nigeria? I was beginning to think a ban had been placed on this. He!He!

    ROTFLMSAO @ the I heart Ofada rice tee. Love it!!!!!!

    • Elpee

      July 20, 2011 at 3:01 pm

      But u can see tho that weaves have happily chopped the hair. That pattern in front is quite wide. She’s really gorgeous regardless. Beauty passes hair loss/chop.

    we nigerians can complain about anything and everything…haba!! we can neva be satisfied. Is it possible to view pics w/o having negative comments, I mean close eyes to these things….not everything d eyes see it must say…c’mon folks just enjoy viewing and keep ur “not so good” opinions and views to urselves…honestly no1 is interested in reading ’em. That is by d way…jackie is beautiful and every1 looks like they had a relaxing time…will def. visit the spa one of these days.

    Think Ini looks ok, like not so bad. It's not everyday we prepare like we are going to a red carpet event. She's allowed to have flaws abeg.

    Nice pic Jackie and Ini


    July 20, 2011 at 8:54 pm

    as for Ini Edo, no comment. Stephanie always looks a mess lately. its the weave, its too much. no wonder some Nigerian guys are saying Nigerian girls are too fake, cause seeing pictures of red carpets, and the weaves being seen here, i cant even blame them! i will just throw up my white flag and agree.
