BN Red Carpet Fab: 2012 Complete Fashion Style Night



Complete Fashion Editor, Franka Asindi-Chiedu (with Mai Atafo)

Woohoo! Complete Fashion Magazine stands out on the newsstands with its unapologetic approach to fashion and style coverage. With their showstopping covers of the last 2 years, we had high expectations for the red carpet at the debut edition of the Complete Fashion Style Night.

We spotted lots of our BN Red Carpet Fab regulars as well as some stars who we have missed over the last few months. From Steph Okereke-Linus in her floor-length gold dress with a nude back panel to Miss Tiwa Savage in a clean slate white mini paired with Louboutin Just Picks!

Nse Ikpe Etim always takes red carpet risks and this occasion was no exception. Other standout looks include Ojy Okpe in Deola Sagoe and Ugonna Omeruo in a white Hse of Nwocha dress with a large bow for dramatic effect.

Many ladies went for the sexy bombshell look – look out for ToolzKaren Igho, Tracy Nwapa, Beverly Naya and Face of Sleek, Alexandra Nwokedi…who ruled the sexy stakes? You decide!

Some of our fave looks were the less obvious choices including Karen Young‘s colourful ensemble and Teni & Aba Sagoe in CLAN.

The men didn’t let the ladies overshadow them. Is that Don Jazzy in a tux?! It sure is! Mai Atafo, Efe Tommy, Lynxxx, Julius Agwu and Ramsey Nouah rocked bold bow-ties while Basketmouth skipped wearing a shirt altogether. We expect others to copy the shirtless trend soon but dear brothers, please note, if you dont have the body to go shirtless…don’t 🙂

    Where do I even start from??? they all look FAB…except Jumai,of course! she needs to lose that pout! and the hair is too long for someone her height.

    • Remi

      July 2, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    • annie

      June 27, 2012 at 12:35 pm

      HALIMA? halima knows what she is doing.She likes to garner attention on her self.She kws if she dresses drab,they talk abt her and her status icreases a lil bit cos i dont uderstand how she would wear such dress and feel good.SHE IS DOING IT FOR ATTETIO I THINK? halima dresses good esp on her birthdays and outings but this is for attetion.

    • Purpleicious Babe

      June 28, 2012 at 10:54 pm

      yep… i agree.. my first reaction was ahhh “what is this”….. as in a dress or bedsheet?? not being rude but seriously. like u said she wants PR… soo there u go. but I think they are other ways of doing this sha..

    • Mafia

      June 29, 2012 at 8:43 pm

      Actually, I think the outfit’s just a little too big– look at those sleeves? And then the hair hides the front of it. I think its a beautiful piece… Just not on her. :\

  2. T.P

    June 27, 2012 at 7:15 am

    I love all the pictures..Vonne vixen,Ugonna,lynxx and naeto c(yes naeto 🙂 are my fav’s!

    • Naaaa

      June 27, 2012 at 3:55 pm

      It looks much more better on her, but she is bold sha, wearing what susan bb wore last year. If I recall Susan had a small nest on her head hehehe

      huh!!!! whr would u classify halima d drag queen?lol

  12. chioma

    June 27, 2012 at 8:05 am

    Everyone is looking good. Wish people will be honest, this is overall best red carpet. I love yellow dress it works on dark skin. Muna is changing, the makeup makes her look like pretty 40 year old. The dresses are beautiful. Halima looks like that is girl that comes out of the well in that horror movie. Very long hair is out, shoulder level looks more classy. Nadia looks like she is going for dinner, like simple but not this simple. Is it not the same muna?

  13. Ice queen

    June 27, 2012 at 8:05 am

    Good Heavens! Halima has lost it completely. How in God’s name did she step out looking like that…

  17. chioma

    June 27, 2012 at 8:23 am

    9ja men must dress men in the world, add that to forbes. Every other country plain black suit. Add the 411 on some dresses . The media shuld ask who they wearing or were they got there dress. Bella can at least put who they wearing for big stars beside there names. No boobs hanging or too shorts dresses. Men well package . Ladies and gentlemen luv luv luv.

  18. mini me

    June 27, 2012 at 8:37 am

    My fave is Mavin 1st Lady. I love this very clean and understated sexy look on Tiwa. Very classy and chic. *cough cough* and those louboutins are so sexy. Oya Ms savage abeg return my shoes o

    • Denny

      June 27, 2012 at 12:15 pm

      As in…understated but soo on point….all the others with the by force tight tight stuff should take note. No need to contrain yourself with spanx….

  19. Concerned Native

    June 27, 2012 at 8:40 am

    Halima who ever told you that what you were wearing looked great hates you, they lied to you. Muna please my dear do something, workout more, stop using certain creams because you are aging very fast, not a good look at all, you look late 30s early 4os, the mavin grew you guys are just muah, tiwa can get it any day. Everyone else tried, first time i didnt overtly see masquerades trying to be humans in one place at a nigerian event.

  20. ij

    June 27, 2012 at 8:45 am

    Nigerians are just too fine, but that Hailma sha…..

  21. Ms. Jayee

    June 27, 2012 at 8:46 am

    HOT! HOT!! HOT!!! More hits than misses. Ugonna Omeruo should be on a cake!!!

  22. Berry Choco Latte

    June 27, 2012 at 8:46 am

    I like most of it!

    But I can’t help but worry that a lot of the females should try and tone up their arms… This coming from Miss Flabby tummy/back/thighs *runs to hide*

  23. frivolities

    June 27, 2012 at 8:46 am

    finally red carpet pictures with a lot more hits than misses. altogether, I think I can fault only Halima Abubakar; that lion’s mane with the agbada No No!
    Nse should have chosen a different color of shoes n Muna cld have tried better with support for her boobs.
    Altogether though these are the best red carpet pics I’ve seen on BN.

    P.S: I hope this comment goes thru, been having some issues posting comments here lately.

  24. TobechiD

    June 27, 2012 at 8:48 am

  28. BooBayBee

    June 27, 2012 at 9:02 am

    Honestly, this red carpet looks better than any i’ve seen so far!!! Nice seeing most of the crowd look so put together. Karen looks great and Nwokedi killed that dress. Dayum!!! Omawumi shoulda worn the dress she performed with on the red carpet instead *rme*. Lady wearing yellow and blaq gown looks good too. Yvonne, Halima and Anne—————No comment.

  29. Alero

    June 27, 2012 at 9:03 am

    OOOOh! I just wish Muna wore a Brassier.#sad face#

    June 27, 2012 at 9:05 am

    Beverly Naya always looks amaziiiing!! Love Ojy Ikpes outfit> Wat was Nse Etim thinking going bralessssssss! Haba.
    Plus Halima Abubakar, nawa ooooo

  31. chi chi

    June 27, 2012 at 9:06 am

    Ojy’s dress is too short, her crotch is almost out. Muna’s dress is alright. this is one of Nse’s worst look ever, the CLAN girls, Ugonna & Karen Young really tried, Mai Atafo failed with this, Don Jazzy, Julius Agwu, nd Lynxxx did good for the guys.

  32. lanny

    June 27, 2012 at 9:07 am

    Omawunmi!! A lot of designers shld b dieing to dress you,wat is that yellow dress about? Nse!! Your dress is a sack….love tiwas’s simple white ensemble…ugonna,ur fabric and seams look tacky again! Franca needs to be wearin a good bra(1st picture). Mai is a boss btw!

  33. Zino

    June 27, 2012 at 9:08 am

    Sexiness award goes to Ojy Okpe and Alexandra Nwokedi… Gosh I want to have that haircut… But how is it that sleek doesn’t force her into all those their ugly hair extensions… Looooollll ok back to looking at the pics. Don Jazzy : major rebranding…

  34. ibi

    June 27, 2012 at 9:18 am

    My oh my. Nigerian women, first off if you choose not to wear tailor-sewn dresses no one will crucify you. If para venture you decide to go this route, pls ensure your tailor is one who pays strict attention to detail.

    Stephanie okeke, I’m a I’ll disappointed honey. If u have any more percentage of back fat than Alex nwokedi, do not wear bare back. Same goes for toke makinwa.

    Nse, as exposed as you are you commit such a blunder? Blue shoe with such a classy dress? Do u not watch red carpets on enews? And my dear, if anyone told you that you can pull off deep plunge, they lied.

    Ariyike akinbobola, nothing wrong doing primark, one of my best stores if I may say, but keep primark off the red carpets pls. Look is trea cheape.

    Wake and omawunmi, best friends forever. Bought jeeps together, piling the pounds together as well, enjoyment too much.

    Dupe olusola, tres chic

    Sasha, yeses, more black pls

    Yeancha, flying boat hair is not working

    Damilola adegite, which one is this eleha garb? U’re too pretty and hot to be covered up like an alhaja.

    Vixen, why wear a dress so publicly displayed by Susan bb Porsche peters? And such severe shoulders is out of fashion, things are mor demure now.

    Halima abubarka, no words for you. You’re just a weisttttt.

    Fun photos.

  37. wisefool

    June 27, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Hmm, liked Munas look. and the girl in the midlength black dress. Theres just something about the rest that I can’t put my finger on. Somethingns not quite right.

  38. Shut up coolcat

    June 27, 2012 at 9:22 am

    Omawumi and Waje come onnnnn. You are young, act and look young. Halima, what is that? Stephanie nailed it for Nollywood. Nwokedi and Ojy love it….

    June 27, 2012 at 9:29 am

    @ice queen et eve, no be say una talk am, i think Halima has completely lost it! she dressed in a similar way to Funke Akindele’s wedding, which made wonder if someone emptied a thrash bin on her!(cos her hair n buba was a mess, it got me retching)

  42. amara

    June 27, 2012 at 9:33 am

    • Sansarai

      June 27, 2012 at 8:05 pm

      Eisss! Leave my Naeto C out of your mouth. Can you not tell the difference between “palm sandals” and flip-flops? My dear, those are palm sandals he’s wearing and they accompany native attire if you don’t know. His native looked fab and the sandals completed the look so betta comot him from your worst-dressed list. How did your eye miss Mai Atafo and his weird outfit? Looking like a cross between Urkel and a Power Ranger – mcchheewww!

    June 27, 2012 at 10:14 am

    1st and for most congrats to nigerians for finally understanding how a red carpet event suppose to look like. 2nd, these young stars should take note from seasoned stars like nse and stephanie and stop packing pancake and asian women’s hair, it makes them look 10 to 20 years older-fresh face and a little goes a long way. 3rd the men didnt disappoint much, looks like naetoc is enjoying married life, and lynxxx ehhmm(coughs) come make i make you my king you just too fuuuuuuuuuine!! 4th. kai wahallahi Halima its not fair ooo,its notoo, why you go thief my halloween costume,ehhh, wetin i do you, i want’am backoo. Is muna prego, she looks swollen and very pregnant like, because that can only be her explanation for looking like 10 to 15years older than her age? In all most of our celebs are looking sharp, and i hope they can use their stardom to help better nigeria, so that it too can atleast look as good as halima’s outfit.

  58. Miss Pepeye

    June 27, 2012 at 10:30 am

    Muna, your boobs are too “dangly, dangly” not to wear a bra abeg. I noticed some commenters stated that it seems Yvonne Ekwere wore a dress Susan Peters has worn. the thing is that a lot of these red-carpet regulars go to the same boutiques a.k.a stylist, to borrow clothes before returning them for drycleaning and a ‘for-sale’ tag is put back on it, and back to the racks for some unsuspecting person to come purchase as new. Oh well………….

  59. mina sarki

    June 27, 2012 at 10:32 am

    God forgive me, but every time i see lynxxx i get inappropriate thougths running in my mind, lynxxx your girlfriend should hold on tight ooo, i wish he was in movies so i can have extra minutes looking at him, yum!! basketmouth, you my number 2 divo(but you don marry 🙁 so off limits), but still speechless, you surprised me with that simple but sexy look. everyone else did okay, but may Allah forgive you Halima, domme?Mene ne Yake faruwa? my sister it just dey pain me the way you just like being noticed for the wrong reason, and i dont know whether to applaud annie or insult her for having the guts to take pictures with you. Munachi…Munachi, i don call you, this your body and face dey questionable, you don dey get belle already- if so smh, if not fire your trainer and makeup artist!!

      no she isnt. No need to be sly with the question. She’s an apple shape and probably should have worn spanx but not preggo (not that I’m hey Gyny o…)

    Everybody looks pretty devent, thank God the minis have gone outta style…either that or the attention-seeker/gatecrashers were barred from this event!

    Can Toolz please stop this full-hair-thingy and try a shuku for once?
    Mrs Idibia (sounds funny when u pronounce it abi?) Nne u try sha.
    Tracy Nwapa, i should have those shoes.
    Karen is for-once-loved-by-me in that, minimal make-up approach, black hair and mid-calf dress; Gorge
    Beveryly love, a clean updo would have positively killed that low-cut back dress better.
    Nneka ezeaka, nice sha, i c u rocking the net-trend
    Dear Olayinka epega, u r so on point, but pls LOOSE THAT FACE! And practice ur red-carpet-face in the mirror before leaving home, making sure u hold it till u have done ur red carpet shots, then u can do whatever the hell u want with ur face, thank u. Moving on.
    Latasha Ngwube, please go and take a cue from the advise to Toolz.
    *sniffs* i don’t think i can go on anymore. How can i continue when Efe Tommy is not wearing his H-belt?
    Sagoe sisters, okay.
    Waje? Girl u did okay, but tone those arms, will ya.
    Naetochukwu nwannem, haba! I understand u were playing it safe, but ahn-ahn naw.
    Mai, please stop doing this! Always making other dudes feel like u all were not attending the same event. Rock on Lav!
    With Omawunmi i’m always looking to see if i have the ankara she selected for her outfit.
    Funmi Holder, nne ibu si go kwa o! I like!
    Dupe Olusola, except u did not pose well or u had a quarrel with the dressmaker halfway into sewing that lappa
    Yeancah? Yeancah?? Yeancah??? Why? Why?? Why??? A face-cap-inspired-hairdo and all that fold happening in ur tummy-area? Bet why na? I used to race to watch ur top10, why do u haf to keel it for me?
    Ezinne Chinkata, i liked the playful-simplicity.
    Who did this to Halima Abubakar? (i need a who-did-this-to- Halima-Abubakar-ad-hoc team set up ASAP)
    Vixen, love the smile u paired with ur Susan-Peters-ensemble…abi, isn’t that the name of the dress? Lolz.
    Van Vicker, biko kedu ife na fio na ife iyi na ukwu? (ur punishment is decoding what i just said)
    Nadia i love ur hair. Guess u were all dressed for just dinner, when someone blindfolded u and dumped u on that red carpet.
    Muna, are those ‘things’ supposed to hang like that?
    OC Ukeje, Praize and Lynxxx, u guys should just go and do thanksgiving that i am madly in love with my man, otherwise, hmm! nuffSaid.
    Umunnem, iyaf tayad! The job of analysing Naija red carpet things is exhilarating, maybe it would all be better if they stopped rolling out carpets, abi? Just come event n go and siddon. Yeah? HELL NO! Keep bringing it on BN, kudos.

  77. Shutup&drive

    June 27, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Hmn….where do I start from?
    First of all, I know that the dress code was specifically stated as black tie and very formal so that automatically eliminates people like
    1. Naeto c
    2. Bez(even tho I love him n he’s such a great kid)
    3. Efe Tommy(jeans, plaid shirt and sneakers are NOT formal just because you are wearing a red blazer and bow tie!)
    4. Miss Zaina(that’s a summer cocktail dress)
    5. Karen Young(lovely ensemble but totally inappropriate for a formal event)
    6. Emmy Collins (for crying out loud! You are a designer and fashion maestro, dress like one!)
    7. Azuka Ogujiuba (waaaaaaay too casual, leggings? Really? Sorry darling)
    8. Nadia Buari (you could hv bn going to the supermarket dressed like that but you are a movie star! Would you wear that to the oscars?)

    The guys whom I thought looked appropriate and really made an effort? Biola Aloba, Kelechi Amadi Obi, Lynxx, Darey(wish his pocket square was more muted in color), that makeup boy Jide, Oc Ukeje, Julius Agu and surprisingly Don Jazzy(his tux and pants could have been a little more tailored but he made good effort)

    As for the ladies, Ojy, your dress was just tooooooooo short. What were you thinking? You are too old for such and it showed all night cos you kept covering your crotch with your hand!

    Yvonne Ekwerre…………..know thyself is not a crime. In a constant bid to make fashion statements you keep falling into fashion errors. This dress is not bad but just not the best for you however, your vanity stops you from seeing that.

    Tiwa, I love you so much and always defend you but this your stylist is beginning to mess you up. Diversify and keep switching both stylists and looks till you find what works. You could hv done much better!

    Nse, wrong color of shoes and somehow, this dress wasn’t the best silhouette for your shape. Metallic colored sandals would hv done you better justice to complement the dress and pull it all together.

    Mai Atafo as usual tried to make a statement that left his legs looking short and stumpy. That plaid design should have been on top as the blazer and the pants should have been plain and it’s time to get rid of those ridiculous glasses pls!

    Sasha, you look like you are headed to the AGM of a mid level insurance company at best. That weave is not the best look sister. Remove it immediately!

    Appropriate red carpet ladies: Toke Makinwa, Damilola Adegbite, ENe Maya Lawani, Clan girls, Wunmi Bakare, Annie Idibia, Yinka Epega, Stephanie Okereke(tho that dress looks a tad cheap ESP the sheer back), Yeancah(but that hair is awful in style and color), Munachi(babe u shd have taped your boobies)
    Two curvy ladies, I keep wondering about are Toolz and Latasha. I think they both looked quite stunning and sexy despite their plus size bodies. I wish both had done up-do hairstyles funny enough.

    It is clear also that this Halima Abubakar’s dress was made by Ugonna Omeruo. The queen of tacky sewing. Ugonna herself suffers from over Sabi-over the top-look at me outfits. Epic failure from you both.

    Miss Nwokedi to me would have been the best dressed but that fishtail at the bottom of her dress ruined the whole look. Her body still carried off that dress perfectly.

    Thank you BN for feeding our eyes today!

    @Ada-Igbo, you said it all, GBAM! I couldn’t have said it better, but I will add that this is Karen Igho’s best look ever!Her shape is to die for!!!!!

  83. Janet

    June 27, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    Toolz has put on a lot of weight, she needs to reduce abit. Halima looks like a drag queen. Apart from a few other bad attempts, overall this is one of the most decent red carpets I’ve seen in Naija for a long time.

  84. Chi-ka

    June 27, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    Naija women don’t have natural hair anymore that they have to all buy from Brazilian women? LOL. Everyone seems to have the same look with all the unnecessarily long weaves flying about.

  85. gurly

    June 27, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Wait o, uti is not on dis red carpet? dats unbelievable. abi bn intentionally skipped him. he’s usually everywhere. lol. Naeto c, i guess ur wife has introduced u to rocking flip flops. u used to be best d dressed male at some point. and while wat u r wearing is ok, i think it was too casual for this event. oh well

    Hmmnh Karen Igho – your body is RIDICULOUS. You try. But please, learn how to do softer makeup…. cos your face looks HARD as hell. This red lip, dark brows thing is not for everybody okay?

  91. Omo

    June 27, 2012 at 4:10 pm

    Halima looks like she is casting for a role in shrek or seriously is she ok?! I wont be caught dead striking a pose with her…..Muna looks good, but that dress not do justice to her her frontal area!

  92. Gimmer

    June 27, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    Halima abubakar looks like those nollywood movie mermaid/ yemoja . Nse etim looks like a street walker. Ugonna…I know the Tom ford dress that inspired this look (gweneth paltrow rocked it to the oscars and looked divine)however like we always say, You need to work on your finishing and fabric choice.

  93. Ib

    June 27, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Overall,VERY ELEGANT…no bottom belle showing here.Ugonna who would have thought u had classy in u….

  94. OmoBolanle

    June 27, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    Nse, Waje and Toolz – seriously?
    Y’all need to sack your stylists!
    Nse looks as if she is preggers with the dress and she has such a lovely figure! And then blue shoes and black bag? I don’t understand the concept of her outfit. However I love the fact that she is going NATURAL.

  95. Ronke

    June 27, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    Best for me are Alexandra, Beverly Naya, (LOVE the back) and Annie Idibia. Forget Halima, she didn’t try but Nse did and looked absolutely horrible (pele) and age is obviously not on her side or is it too much exercise?

    Pls let’s learn to support the Nigerian Women that are doing stuff for themselves. Vonne Vixen is my Favourite red carpet look. @Coolcat or whatever u call urself, learn to spell, her name is Waje and not Wake. U criticised practically everyone and u even made me race to Primark to look for the type of Ariyike’s dress only for my Sister (who works in fashion) to tell me the Ariyike girl’s dress is by Marc Jacobs and then I looked at her shoes and realised she’s wearing Ferragamo shoes, my friends in Naija even said the babe is even married with 2 kids abeg she’s on point, My darling Toke Makinwa looks like a damsel.Stephanie, Waje, Latasha, and Toolz are curvy women and they all look fab. Every Woman I’ve called over here is doing something for herself, Coolcat pls send Bella a picture of yourself and pls tell us if u re even employed! Jobless Cow oshi.

    June 28, 2012 at 5:09 am

    Vixen? Vixen? When will you ever stop lending clothes and bags ehn? This is the same dress Susan Peters wore to the NEAs in N/Y, check out the website and you will see the dress on the opening montage. I love Halima Abubakar, I don’t care what people say. once I can ascertain what she does for a living, that is! Dare as usual #yawns. Karen has got an amazing midriff, that ain’t no spanks I can tell. Muna has been passed around so much, she’s losing all that beauty. Best dressed is definitely Alex of Sleek. Sophisticated glamour with a tint of high fashion that only that body can carry. I’m sure it’s a Tiannah dress. And thank heavens, no Uti and Alex. Or even the horrific Derele!

  113. dee one

    June 28, 2012 at 5:30 am

    halima…like seriously, she must have been in a trance while dressin up, dats d only logical explanation i can think of as to y she wud do dis to herself and den nse, u used to be beta dan dis and to think linda ikeji paired her with ugonna n karen on her blog as best dressed…for d guys….mai atafo “hell to d no” dat look was just way off plus im not really loving julius agu’s lapel. Omawunmi i take God beg u, get a stylist ASAP. is it just me or did n e one else notice dat muna looks like dorothy atake.

    Hi B.N, I am a celebrity stylist in London but hails from Nigeria. I have some Nigeria celebrity clients in my book. Please tell Halima Abubakar to contact me because she needs a fashion fix.. All you ladies that open your folded back , big and untoned arms all in the name of fashion, you need an Image consultant who will show you how to dress especially for red carpet events. You do not need to expose all your body to look beautiful, knowing what to conceal is very important in fashion. I am shocked at what I am seeing. Only a few got it right. You are celebrities please dress up and carry yourselves in that manner. That is all I can say

    Hello Peeps,
    someone should help me take a look at EFE TOMMY.
    looking like a masqurade in the name of colour blocking, lol. Avoid wearing undersized cloths man.
    Nse Etim, you didnt have to wear that outfit, u mnade it worse with the blue shoes.
    Vivex, yes the dress was worn last year but looks FAB on u, keep the flag flying babes!
    Emmy Collins, this is a total NO. What were you thinking? its red carpet MAN not one of your casual outings. Be warned!
    @ IVY- I totally agree with you. Alot of Nigerians do not know how and what to wear for functions. We need JOAN RIVERS to put pple to check.
