We have a fabulous BN Pick Your Fave feature today! This one features a beautiful Deola Sagoe piece. This floor-length dress with a dramatic peaked shoulder, cascading ruffled side detailing and a shimmery back panel made its runway debut at the 2010 Africa Fashion Week in Johannesburg.
Nike Oshinowo-Soleye was the grand dame of the Miss Nigeria 2011 competition. As the CEO of the Miss Nigeria organization, Nike guided the ladies all through the process, right up to the “crowning moment”. On stage at the Miss Nigeria 2011 finale, Nike was dressed in this standout Deola Sagoe piece. She kept her hair elegant in a trendy knot, makeup and jewellery were mininamist as well with the only pop of colour from her red lipstick.
Dreamgirls star Anika Noni Rose gave this dress its red carpet debut at the BET Honors event in January 2011. Though this is a very bold dress, Anika added a few strategic accessoires. Her hair was swept up in a soft chignon and she completed her look with a pair of precious jewel drop earrings and a cocktail ring.
So…Pick Your Fave
