    Eku Edewor, epic fail! and how do people leave their houses in Nigeria wearing boots or shoe booties,even TY Bello?!!!!!!!!! it is an absolute no,no! It’s like wearing knee high boots in the summer here in US, you’d be laughed at because the weather is sooo hot!

    Not too impressed. I can’t really remember the outfits I just looked at. Eku is an interesting girl. I’m not a fan of open toe pumps but she looks great.
    I want to believe that people looked good but their pictures weren’t taken by Bella’s team. A lot of these people look messy and some looked like they were dressed for Sunday service.
    I really hate that blue and pink combination. Its so played out!

    It’s official fashion week is when u r allow to bring out inner lady gaga n Madonna , I dare u to dress like this every other day

    March 10, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    People like to over do it though……Its just a fashion show for crying out loud…… aint the models….you’re just there to watch! Next time…..i beg, try looking moderate! 🙂

    the “hair in a bun” look isn’t for everyone, sub at the first girl… other than that i guess its fashion week so pple are allowed to pull eccentric stunts

    na wa oh for that dude that wore the bird-man waist coat and super skinny pants, all that’s left is for him to get cape and he is good to go

      loool as in! I am really sick and tired of dudes wearing skinnys in the first place. Wharisit, must men too do fashion? Whatever happened to plain dull colours, right length, roomy trousers plus an ‘i threw this on’ face. WE (the ladies) are the ones tat wear ruffles, supper skinnys e.t.c. If dudes want to spice it up, jst wear a very bright color or summin. LET US SHINE biko on d read carpet ahn. I’m tired of this gay looking type outfits dudes be pulling.

    its funny how all these wanna bes all posing for pics knowing very well thier pics will end up on BN and they think they are looking their best, but really looking like clowns at a masquerade. Yeah you look real cute, for sho. In a clownish way that is.

  34. marvel

    March 11, 2012 at 10:12 am

    Your photographer is the problem here. I would personally stick to only 6 people who cut it. Since BN refuse to list the pics, mine’s…
    Pics 2, 4, 9, 11, 19, 22, 27, 29, 39, 40, 45 or 47, 48, 53, 54, 55, 61?, 67, (68?, 68?), 70 & 73

    Guess the ladies are starting to miss the point! I see a lot of “trying to make an impression” which equalled to “extremely tacky” Style should be effortless and an expression of ones’self …but for the guy wearing a butterfly jacket and the one in Orange pants…the guys didn’t go wrong. TY Bello gets the trophy for the ladies. The rest should really do a style check… *phew*!

  36. H.A.W

    March 11, 2012 at 11:08 pm This was way toooooooooooooooo tight.. he even had to put his hands over his u know coz it was too tight… haba.. lol

    chaaaiiii… the girl wearing the black dress with a tie n some wierd glasses. what happen abeg. pls beg BN to remove ur picture. STOP IT STOP IT. its not fair on urself. its not by force. you are going for a fashion show not a circus parade. ki lo de.
