BN Style Bytes: Fierce & Bold in Blue! Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde Spotted in a Custom Alali Boutique Dress at a Movie Premiere in Tanzania

Published

 on

African fashion is on a steady upward spiral and Nigeria is at the helm of affairs, churning out amazing talents and beautiful pieces every single day and here at BellaNaija.com, we absolutely love when our celebrities pay homage to Nigeria by donning outfits by the country’s budding designers, especially on “out of Nigeria” trips.

One superstar who recently caught our eyes, is award winning Nollywood thespian Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde who was the epitome of perfection in a custom royal blue dress by Alali Boutique in Tanzania for a movie premiere.

When Oroma Cookey-Gam (Creative Director, Alali Boutique), was approached by the actress’ team to design a dress for her, she immediately knew it had to be fitted structured dress to show off Omotola’s stunning silhouette. Oroma said “Naturally for me, a structured dress means I have the liberty to play with patterns, textures and colors without the dress looking over the top and garish. The vision for the dress was a classic, non-conventional dress that says a lot without saying too much. A dress that would make its wearer feel confident and elegant. I chose to do the dress in one color- royal blue- and concentrated on different textures in that color that express opulence- tulle, chiffon, satin and rayon jersey”.

Omo T accessorized the custom Alali Boutique dress with drop down feather earrings and black Christian Louboutin “Alti” Pumps.

    Lose the curtain abi cape, it distracts from the lovely dress. Only very few people can pull of that look. Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Kidman come to mind, and they are waif like women

    • Mafia

      July 27, 2012 at 3:55 pm

      Fashionista,
      Your opinion of only waif-like women pulling off the greek/roman look of the drape over the shoulder seems to be based on what you’ve seen from Hollywood. I beg to differ. There are frescoes showing Greek women with more curves than Omotola carrying off that style beautifully. The drape is there to Emphasize curves and flow when the individual moves. Drapes are also very evident in Sarees – and they often look better on women with curves, than those w/out.
      I’ve read your opinion, but I obviously completely disagree.

    Dress is great on a fine actress. Shoes could be better- a Louboutin is NOT the only shoe.With this outfit, it was a no no.

  29. Tbabe

    July 27, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    @ Juliet 1:57… the shoes are not tight on her feet.. louboutin purposely designs his shoes to look tight in front thereby giving “toe cleavage”. Go research it! Btw omotola looks fabulous!

  30. Ronke

    July 27, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    I tire for nigerians o. If you don’t like something, automatically you must be a hater or jealous. Haba. We are mostly a nation of yes men, and yes women. We all must like someone or something because it is popular. Where is the room for individuality, and freedom of choice. Are we the same, must we all like the same thing. All this fawning, and fawning, we must praise, we must praise so we feel among. Butt licking comes to mind. lol. Personally, the dress is really nice, suits her shape well, but her posture in the 1st picture is a little awkward, considering she should be a pro at this. If you look closely too, the shoes look a little tight, and they are aqueezing her feet, making it look swollen. The “curtain” attached to the dress just took away from the beauty. O pari. I’m sure the abuse will start now, because i didnt fall over the floor, and lick omotola’s ass in this picture.

    • Tbabe

      July 27, 2012 at 4:08 pm

      It’s called toe cleavage pple! It irks me when pple comment without really having any of their facts right.. if you own a pair of loubs u will know that that’s the way his shoes are designed.. the toe box is designed to squeeze ur toes to give it cleavage hence the tight look! i tire o! the shoes are fab and she rocks it well!

    • Ronke

      July 27, 2012 at 6:09 pm

      Sorry, to burst your bubble. I happen to own a few, I just didn’t think it needed mentioning in this case, before I’m accused of showing off. Toe cleavage or not, those shoes didn’t do her feet justice. hey squeeze your feet no doubt, just the way the peep toe loubs do also, but they are not meant to give you pregnant lady feet. We have sha seen such shoes on hollywood stars. Make i no go too far sef, i’ve seen those same shoes on friends.

    • bibi

      July 27, 2012 at 6:39 pm

      Sorry to burst your bubble too ronke omotola’s feet are naturally swollen.ALL her shoes whether loubs or not,starpy or not her feet remains swollen.Some women still has dat swollen legs even after child cirth

    July 27, 2012 at 3:30 pm

    Omotola just made us proud with this dress.Tanzanian blogs already posted omotola had a dress designed specially for so so nd so movie premiere to the extent of comparing her to their actresses asking thier actresses to get their sh*t together,make effort in their styles,get hold of stylists nad learn from omotola hahahahahahah u just made me proud OMO,u didnt fall our hand u repped us well luv u :*

    The dress would have be VERY NICE except for the super hero cape draping behind her. Less is always more people!

  36. marvel

    July 27, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    Tbabe, Loubs aren’t made for C+ wide feet types either, sweetie. Listen to the ladies. I thought she looked fab in that dress and colour. I noted the somewhat ill fitted shoes that only highlighted her swollen ankles. Nothing to do with toe cleavage.

  37. Bianca

    July 27, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    Omotola is a naturally attractive woman. Her face is so pretty. She has a nice hour glass body especially when she’s toned up. Love the dress and color on her. Keep shining, Mrs Ekeinde

    Her shoe looks really tight, like it hurts.

    Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, it’s important to get shoes a half size bigger.

    July 27, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    She’s jst a beauty to behold. A beautiful dress on a beautiful body makes it complete & kudos to the designer. For those who are jealous; take it easy, make jealousy no kill una oooo.

    July 27, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Nice dress, save for the ‘train’. Loose it. It’s too long and too full and frankly, not that well executed so it comes off like it was an after thought. Love the dress itself, though. Hugs her in all the right places. The color against her skin tone is lovely.

  44. Simya

    July 28, 2012 at 2:53 am

    Omotola looks stunning but please those shoes just don’t fit. I have broad feet and not all shoes look good on me, so I avoid covered shoes…this has nothing to do with toe cleavage…there’s nothing attractive about a pair of shoes that look tight.

    • biola

      July 28, 2012 at 12:08 pm

      you are obviously way outta time, don’t mean to insult u… this shoe perfectly fits her, hoe can u tell about her feet? the shoe looks great….

    Ah someone has occupied my name? Lol… Yes omoT’s feet no foot can only clearly see one looks tight but it might just be the particular picture.Have never noticed that in any of her pics before but does this Lady look FAB or what! Saw a pic of her on twitter in a black skirt and shimmery top Bella pls get that pic! HER SHAPE IS UNREAL!!! This lady is BEAUTIFULLLLLL

  48. Bukki

    no wonder omotola is also called omosexy, this is absolutely brilliant, looking sexy as ever in any dress she wears…

  54. Ginika

    July 30, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    A beautiful sleek updo centered on her head would have been very nice to show off the one shoulder dress well.

  55. adelegirl

    July 30, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Love the dress but would personally rock it without the train though I understand that for an actress it adds drama to the red carpet. Omotola has really come into her own style wise. This is really good. I remember the “bad old days” of ill-fitting tight lycra things (things because no way can one call them outfits or dresses). Well done Omotola.

  56. Traditionalbay

    July 30, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    some haters are not married let alone having kids, yet they are far from Omot T’s shape! whether u like am, weather u no like am………she is fulfilling her dream!

  57. Bukki

    July 30, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    @ ginika…I think she has done a lot of updos/ Knots of late…so maybe she thought f going for a lighter feel and not an am so serious look. I like the breezy light feel and not too serious take on that dress. With an updo with that cape might make it look too hero moviesh…I love that Omotola pulls all her outings with an enviable kind of effortless confidence! Now that’s the definition of a Sexy woman!

  58. Anon

    July 31, 2012 at 6:43 am

    Omotola is a beautiful woman, the shoes doesn’t take away from the fact that she’s a natural beauty. . She has a wide feet and open toe shoes look best on those type of feet. Pointy shoes or covered shoes look the best on narrow feet. It’s all about knowing what looks best on your feet.

  59. Tosin

    July 31, 2012 at 9:19 am

    She’s a beautiful girl in a flawless dress (and that bangin body). Flawless is boring to me. Need a little weirdness to keep things fun.
