    It was amazing to be a part of this shoot and hanging out with some of the most down to earth, beautiful and talented ladies around. However just a point of correction, Blush did the makeup for Kate Henshaw and Adesuwa. Makeup for Tewa and Toolz was by the talented Folasade Akintade of Hautelook.

    The photoshop to re-siz Toolz’s body is terrible. In their bid to make her appear slimmer, they instead made things worse by making her look shapeless when we all know she has a FANTASTIC figure 8.

    Great cover – but why would Vanguard Allure use the same EXACT dress for their cover girls in back to back issues? I refer to the ROF dress that Kate Henshaw is wearing. It’s almost the exact same one that Yinka Davies wore for their cover the week before – or at least the same exact pattern. It’s lazy and unimaginative. *Snore*..
