Uche Jombo steals the show in a dazzling Christie Brown dress at the Lagos premiere of “Damage” – View Exclusive Photos



Uche Jombo

The eagerly awaited advocacy movie, “Damage” premiered at the Silverbird Galleria in Lagos less than 24 hours ago.
As always, BN will bring you the full scoop from the event.

The movie’s producer/writer/lead actress, Uche Jombo stole the show as she stood out as the proverbial “belle of the ball”.
Uche represented the African fashion industry as she chose a floor-length layered Chantilly lace dress by Ghanaian designer, Christie Brown. The dress from the designer’s “An Afromantic Daydream” collection and featured Christie Brown’s signature button detail which adorned the sweetheart neckline.

The single strap dress was a dazzling choice for the talented actress – her green and gold statement earrings, stylish “do” and flawless makeup completed her look. Uche’sstandout look was styled by Ezinne Chinkata, with makeup by Banke Meshida-Lawal and hair by Destiny.

    Sorry o, but I think the model stole the ‘show’. Dress looks better on her anyway! But nice look Uche, you keep getting closer to achieving the ‘superstar’ look, i hope your next public outfit seals the deal.

    Uche looks lovely…. Let’s see how objective BN readers really are. . Ezinne, yet another point scored. You definitely know what you are all about.

    I’m sorry but there’s nothing particularly DAZZLING about the dress. She does look nice but more in a pop-to-the-shops kind of way. It seems to me that quite a few of the articles on BN recently have been quite hysterical and OTT. First there was the ” Superstar Darey Snapped by the Papparazzi” farce, then this and a few others in between. We all support Naija artistes as well and want to see them do well, but please let’s try to separate fact from fiction. Thanks BN.

    This is the best I’ve seen Uche Jumbo look EVER! She needs to put Ezinee & Banke on permanent retainership!

    Stunning????? Indifference….But why does she have to strain her neck that much?? Uche no be by force to thin oooo

      I totally agree with you. She doesn’t look relaxed in the dress at all. I don’t think the dress gave her any credit. Whether a dress is from a regular shop or by a known designer, our actors & actresses should learn to pick clothes that compliment their looks.

      August 2, 2011 at 1:35 pm

      yes it was, i wonder why…

    • Moi

      August 3, 2011 at 9:27 am

      guess they didnt want the model to steal Uche’s thunder, and u know nigerians can compare n contrast…lol. maybe the model looked better in the dress!

  15. Mary007

    August 2, 2011 at 3:39 am

    Uche looks okay. The hair does not compliment her face, gives her an old look, the dress makes her look okay as it fits her, not a glamorous look. Make up is perfect

    • Nene

      August 2, 2011 at 9:12 pm

      That hairstyle is retro, it’s supposed to make u look like u stepped out of a modern classy 1960’s…stop hating unnecessarily

    The best way to move forward in Nigeria is not to take too seriously the negativity that seems to be the norm with naija people these days.All in the name of constructive criticism…*RME*
    This is the best I have ever seen Uche Jombo look. Dress(correct)…Hair(Correct)…Make up(Correct)

    make non-objective pple go siddon jare! Uche darling, Hair and make-up are on point. the dress…fits well but you outshine it! not glam enuff for you. looks like one of those old lace things one olofofo will get up now and call ‘vintage’…another word for ‘okrika’ from yaba and alaba suru!
    But all things considered, u look amazing darling… glowing from the inside out!

    Too much hype abt d dress and designer. Aint nothin spectacular abt d dress.. Cud b a maxi-dress 4 all we care. A dress of a lighter shade, maybe cream and studded wud hav suited her skin beta. D hype shud have been 4 d make-up. Love d hair too. Uche is stepping up her game. She’s slowly unshedding her former local dressing . Kudos uche.

  41. Ruth

    August 2, 2011 at 11:38 am

    Sincerely its just an ok picture. Nice dress but i wasn”t feeling that hair. it doesn’t fit her and am sorry the stylist did a bad job especially for this event. And one advice for the stylist, from the picture i saw, she couldn”t evem style herself not to talk of someone else. So braise up and deliver, all the best. Meanwhile, i love your inspiration Uche, keep it up.

  42. Mogszi

    August 2, 2011 at 11:38 am

    Finally! So Uche can actually take a good picture and she’s this pretty! I guess someone advised her not be showing all her 32 when taking pics.

    August 3, 2011 at 10:07 am

    I have noticed that there r alot of haters on bellanaija.
    1st of all – for red carpet events, it doesn’t matter whether its day or night – you are supposed to look elegant & you can hardly ever look over the top (except you are lady gaga ofcourse)
    2nd – Her hair & make-up are Fabulous haba!!
    Guys give credit where it is due please.

    PS – i would like to know the random people that wear this Uche’s outfit to “pop-to-the-shops”? lol. or who goes through all that trouble of getting the fab hair, make-up and dress just to go shopping. lol.

    anyway, enjoy the rest of your week people. One Love!!

    Never ever have I seen uche wearing a dress or hair well its always the other way round. The dress is always wearing her. I mean look at this photo for instance she seems like she is trying too hard to pose. I know she tries hard but she still never pulls it off. In this photo I don’t see uche I jujust see the dress and her pose is too damn force and razz. Someo needs to set up an image consuultancy to show these nollywood ppl how to pose. Always trying too damn hard. Relax uche relaxm ogin. N
