BN Bytes: Big Brother Amplified Winner Karen Igho rocks the cover of ThisDay Style



ThisDay Style – the Sunday Style insert of ThisDay Newspaper jolted us with their Sunday 21st of August 2011 issue.

Big Brother Amplified winner Karen Igho was the cover girl and she definitely rocked it!

Karen’s shoot was by Ty Bello with accessories by Designers Lounge and Hair/Makeup by Makeup Den.
Check out our scans below.

    I get that everyone loves Karen Igho… I get it. Haven’t seen any episode of the now-infamous episodes of this year’s “BB Africa” to judge for myself but there’s obviously something about her that’s lovable.

    However, what I do not get is this ThisDay style cover. “Rocks” what exactly, BellaNaija? No offence, Karen but nothing here speaks of style… even the shoes are a fail and God knows it takes a lot for me to condemn footwear.

    I blame the stylist, I’m sure you’re an okay chic Karen, but I seriously blame whoever styled this shoot.

      anyhoo. so everybody loves Karen now, huh? i first came across the personality in the dailies and they cudn’t put her in a bad enough light. Lo! come her win and…SMH
      Ms. Karen ma’m, carry go!

      August 22, 2011 at 5:23 pm

      It is so SPARKLING clear that you didn’t watch the show.. DEF! Nobody thinks of Karen synonymously with innate style that has NOTHING to do with her essence!

      Wow, did any of you three style this shoot (yes, you three stans)? Is that y y’all are sooo p**sed??? I apologise for not liking it but she doesnt look good. It’s a badly styled shoot, what part of my properly-clarified-comment do you not understand?? Reason, please, before responding. Sheesh!!

      You are so right about this. Nigeria has come a long way in terms of fashion and photo shoots and this one is a total dissappointment for a girl that has such fabulous figure.

    too funny..
    there’s nothing stylish about this pictures.. if she had a stylist she may well could’ve or actually shoud’ve done without him/her..
    this doesnt reflect her personality whatsoever..
    certainly could’ve done better!
    the headshot isnt so bad..
    BN the heading so doesnt do this post justice..

    O.K. I really like Karen but why can’t we read the interview? I would love to read what she said. I believe other people would like to read as well. I am not feeling these haphazard scanned images.

    She looks nice, the short hair looks totally like a wig though, just saying. She looks like a girl I met in the second photo.

    its obvious some people here are pure haters. karen rocks whether she put on a cloak or a dress made out of curtains. she is a hot babe and remember why we fell in love with her. it was because of her beautiful personality.she has a heart of gold. I LOVE YOU KAREN

    This look works alright. Love the hair on her and the office girl(with the dress) and the rock chic(with the shoes) work for me so I really like

    Actu’e’lly, the shoes are dodgy. Appears, they are bigger than her too?

  24. coolcat

    August 22, 2011 at 10:17 pm

    I am the biggest karen fan on the face of the earth, I will defend her forever but…I gotta say, the styling doesn’t do her justice at all. 1st dress is too tight, she has small features(waist) but with those gorgeous boobies u gotta go a size bigger. She also has one kind big yansh(pardon my spanish). So the dress is squishing her boobs and the seams of the dress @ the hips look like they gonna burst.

    D shoes r gorg but do not go with the dress at all, and what’s with the purse that still has the tag on it???

    D ribbed tights also look tacky and good Lord, enough with the louby’s already. We don’t knw real from fake anymore.

    I also think they could’ve done a much better job with the location, standing next to cheap wardrobes is totally unacceptable.

    The last look is gorg but in all, we know our karen to be spunky, sassy, zany, wild…and this demure concept is a travesty. Even the pics at her welcome party would’ve been better.

    I am shocked TY bello took these photos. She was at the top of photography one time, wonder what happened. I guess in naija every one calls themself a stylist, when they have no clue how to infuse the styling with the “client’s” personality.

    Karen, we need u back on TV, I need you in my life ooooooo

      Coolcat, regarding the purse that still has a tag on it, I bought sunday’s thisday style (like I always do on sundays 😉 ), so i just want to clarify that its not the price tag of the purse (as you call it) that is on it. That tag has $200,000 written on it, and thats not even a purse, its a briefcase which I think symbolises how much she has won, or better still how much money is in it.


    August 23, 2011 at 4:51 am

    I love Karen Igho, that is my baby girl. but I mean, who did this to her? is this how we treat a winner? COME ON! I bet folks are laughing. Karen, I know you didn’t think this was cute, couldnt you have addded just a little diva and said your mind? because watching you on the show, I know you’ve got style, and would never wear anything like this.
    the hair (especially in the 2nd pic) is so bad, the entire 2nd pic is so wrong. the lighting is poor, etc. the outfits are wack.
    i dont want to sound like a hater, but I am not hating on Karen, its whoever styled the shoot and the photographer. SMH
