    @ Aibee and Lola: Tonto Dike’s outfit is classy. It’s so obvious you guys are not aware of the current fashion trends!

    • Straight4ward

      August 29, 2011 at 10:53 pm

      @Lucy: Madame “aware of current fashion trends”, there are specific dress codes for specific events, so please shut up!….She might as well have worn a bum short to an elegant red carpet event since it’s trendy!.. Tonto Dike is just a totally confused wannabe, who tries so hard and always gets it very wrong!

    • ke-zu

      September 3, 2011 at 4:33 pm

      it is not about the fashion trend but about the style!now if you did know bout fashion you’ll know that trends come and go but style is what remains and makes you stand out! tonto dikeh is an obvious “trend slave”

  22. Luvlyn

    LWKMD @ Ms. Sexy’s “Outsidewood”

    Tonto Dikeh, are you looking for a second job as a bar tender? You would make a very sexy bar tender but please, not on the red carpet, dear.

    Rukky Sanda – girl!Girlllllllllllllll NO! I reiterate what someone has already said, stop wearing club appropriate clothes to red carpet events. And do lay off the “skin toning” cream, you are giving the zebras a run for their money besides, these creams make you susceptible to skin cancer, please it’s not worth it, nne.

    Emem Isong – these dark colors are not flattering. I know you think dark colors make you slimmer but please believe me when I tell you that bright colors can be a big girl’s best friend especially a dark complected one.

    Mona Lisa has got to slow down on the weight loss, slow the hell down. I am not calling her out of her name but fact is she has a big head and compared to her new body, she will start looking like a bubble head doll IF she doesn’t stop. It isn’t everyone who is meant to be a size 2, she wasn’t right at a 14 but she would be best at a size 6 definitely NOT a 4 which is where she is right about now. Her friends are bigging her up but if they are good friends, they will tell her to hold it right where she is or tag on 5 lbs more to balance herself out well.

    Love Uche’s dress, but nna mehn….Monalisa Chinda just morphed into a gorgeous fashionista right in front of our very own eyes o! Its either her ex hubby was arranging her old wardrobe or her divorce did her well!

  33. MumyZee

    August 29, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    August 29, 2011 at 5:04 pm

    weldone to Uche, she has really tried with this her movie. O Rukkie! ill-fitting, undersized body-con dress on the red carpet? seriously? take a leave from Uche, get a clue!, Generally, it looks kinda boring *sorry*, the Lagos premier was way better.

  35. oSinakachi

    August 29, 2011 at 5:13 pm

    Bravo Uche… Sorry but Tonto looks silly… Guess her rolling with madam coco couture ( queen of silly looks) is starting to effect her….. Yes Uche’s red dress makes her look taller… Kudos to Meena….

    Uche Jombo is just stunning!
    – From the look of things that Dejo Richard fella had to go because since the divorce Monalisa has just been beaming! Her choice of clothes , hair and make-up has been on point!
    -This is the best I’ve seen Rucky sanda, Club wear or not. I am still not a fan….
    -Tonto, Cocktail waitress and Librarian love child, She looks more like whe is going to costume party than someone who just dressed masculine… SHe sheould have picked a different Bow: Maybe an ascot black with sequins or a different jacket… She is cute but it is a fail…
    – Emem Isong needs help! Naybe she should get a leaf off Adaora Ukoh just cause you are plus-sied doesn’t mean you have to look unpolished. She always wears these weird dressed that look ill-fitted and un-pretty. Some wanna-be stylist should definitely give her free consultation for publicity or something because I am annoyed every time I see her: such a talented woman that can’t seem to put a decent outfit together… uugghh

    LWKM4H o @ d supposed red carpet #totalfail! Luvin’ Monalisa’s dress, she looks amazing! Chioma looks great 2! Uche looks aii but not all that…sorry! Tonto Dikeh, hmm I think I’m kinda diggin’ her Janelle Monae look but I agree she does look like a waitress lmaooooo. Can someone pls tell Rukky Sanda or woreva she calls herself to coverup those -out legs… ewwwwwww! Overall, I’ll give the premiere a B.

  46. chexbarbie

    August 29, 2011 at 10:59 pm

    my point exactly,uche jumbo try another hair stylist cos u’re stepping up on ur dressing. tonto looks stunning. thats d fashion trend now for all u slackers. munalisa kudos to u,i’m impressed. the UT chic looks fab. uuurrrhhmm sanda rukky cut d – look. there are better ways to look classy and sexy at d same time.

  47. Laydeelarz

    August 29, 2011 at 11:53 pm

    For me…
    Best lookin overall- Monalisa Chinda
    Most innovative- Tonto Dikeh
    Biggest flop (aka wtf)- Rukky Sanda
    PS- did Chioma inherit Monalisa’s lost weight?

  48. coolcat

    August 30, 2011 at 12:09 am

    I hate to say this but my word, divorce definitely did monalisa good. All u ladies in unhappy abusive marriages, I’m not saying leave him but there just might be a better future ahead!

    Why does it look like uche and chioma had a same clothier dress them? Same dull, wrinkly fabric though well fitting. This weight loss secret in nollywood is amazing o, even chioma is looking svelte. Emem isongobviously didn’t get the memo!

    Absolutely adore tonto’s look. She doesn’t need any lessons from janelle monae(who I think looks silly). I love that tonto paired it with sexy glittery pumps so u knw she’s a diva through and through. The look is edgy, crisp, dork chic and downright fashion forward. Everyone can do colour blocking but I dare anyone to do men’s wear inspired. The small bow tie is d right way to do it and tapered pants for that extra sex appeal. Best look in my book!

    Monalisa, u look so good I had to mention u 2ce but I don’t understand d plunge on this dress. Is it a deeeeeep V she held together with a pin(lol) or is the dress that deconstructed? I’ve neva seen such a dress sha so u get max points for originality. Hair also pulled back so focus is on flawless face and dress!

    Seems like they get better stylists when they’re away, all but ruKky sanda who looks like a waitress. Herve Leger is not for all body types especially when its a knock-off. Love her weight loss tho!
    @temi, rukky lighter? Darker u mean, her skin is now immune to hydroquinone after extensive damage. Mama bleaching cream!

    Impressive, naija divas repping lagos well. And to uche, u are truly differentiating yourself from your peers!

    I tot i was the only one who saw it. The red carpet is a seriously like a red fabric..messed up the glamour in the pictures..UK pshew, even for naija we put some excellent touches to our red wa gosh!!

  51. Mabel

    August 30, 2011 at 4:04 am

    All these fake hair look like a darn rat nest. I can’t with Uche and the sucking in the stomach to take the pics, just get a spanx or body magic and relax. I like that Tonto chose an alter ego look for the evening. I see Rukky working hard to channel a seductress, Fail!. Look like they were having fun.

  52. AJCiti

    August 30, 2011 at 4:29 am

    I love Tonto Dikeh, shes one bad mama jamma, and definitely best dressed on the red carpet!

    CHIOMA!!!!! is the real definition of a woman. She dresses to suit her age. Very well put together always. Monalisa has emerged into a mind blowing diva. Uche is doin well, her dresses are on point.

  55. Onyx

    August 30, 2011 at 8:40 am

    Uche – you look really good in that dress but the hair… should have done a bit more wt the hair. Still look good, though
    Tonto – I get where you were going wt this but that shirt’s too plain. Shoes, pants & belt were on point, should have lost the waistcoat and gone wt something else to spark the look off & give you THAT edge.
    Chioma – good colour & fit, altogether not bad.
    UT – Fabness
    Kalu – I have no idea who you are but … you’re a hottie
    Emem – for once, I cant complain, you look well put together.
    Monalisa – dayum, girl, you’ve stepped the heck up! I approve
    Glory – It was working for me and then I saw your shoes. Why? That jumpsuit, clutch and belt were so on point, some gold sandals would’ve been perfect.
    Rukky – you look lost, like you turned up at the wrong party…

    Oh boy! Saw Mona Lisa at the Julius Agwu comedy thingie and she is H.O.T. Full Stop. Can’t believe its that same girl that used to do the one braid on weave thing. Even the hubby was like wow! Keep it up babes.

    Chioma looks nice too.

    Glam!!!! Whooo!!!!! Our ladies rocked!!! Monalisa stole the night as far as I am concerned, scoring major points for the design of her dress, and the pony tail the braids were packed in, bringing out the beauty of moderately made up face!

    Everyone else looked nice, and in spite of myself I like Tonto’s look. Congratulations to Uche on the premiere, welcome to the big league!

    August 31, 2011 at 11:23 am

    Y’ll shud check out pic no.6… D background looks like dey stapled newspapers together and stuck it on d wall. ATROCIOUS!!! So low budget!!
    I took a closer look at mona’s dress and I don’t like it at all. I don’t get wats going on wif d top, a bit messy!! Oh well!! Its my opinion!!

    Rukky Sanda and Tonto Dikeh need an upgrade in the style department. So lacking in grace and demure-ness (if such word exist!)

  71. extemy

    October 30, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    For me i tink tonto looks nyc even if am not a fan,chioma looks gud,monalisa also was on point even if d front design is a bit confusing…uche also looks gud n rukky i reserve my comment!
