    Love Lilian Nnachukwu’s Dress and shoes. However i feel that her makeup could have be toned down a bit, since her hair is blonde.

    Lilian unachukwu has lost her beautiful looks in cutting her hair….now she looks like a drag queen…why change a winning formula in favor of untested looks? Please go back to your roots!

    • NNE

      August 18, 2012 at 12:20 pm

      GBAM!!! I was desperately looking for the ‘Lilian’ behind all dat drag make up…she’s a fine girl on a good day, but this is a serious case of AMBER ROSE GONE HORRIBLY WRONG!

    this ladies legs go give somebody nightmare, some people need to slim down in naija. this is a fashion let down well except for lynxx and naeto c who look very classy. when i look at pic on BN most of the time it always a fashion letdown. people u need to step it up. pls we need someone like “joan rivers” in naija. seriously!

  39. MichelleWuChun

    August 18, 2012 at 5:44 pm

    I saw this coming; it’s funny how just a couple of days ago there was an article on Bella Naija about words hurting people. Almost everyone said they had been victims to people saying nasty things about them. Now there is a red carpet and everyone is back to their tongue lashing ways- talking about how this person looks like this and how another person’s makeup is looking like that. Seriously people don’t learn, if you don’t have any good thing to say about people just zip it. How these people decide to dress or wear their makeup is nobody’s business. You don’t expect people to dress or do their makeup the way you will do it. Everyone should be entitled to dress or wear their makeup however they want it.

    • remi

      August 19, 2012 at 6:10 pm

      Then BN should close the comments section.

    • MichelleWuChun

      August 20, 2012 at 12:20 am

      I am not asking for BN to close the comment section, all I am saying is people need to be tactful and discreset before writing some of the comments made. I think people need to ask themselves the question “if someone writes this comment I am about to leave about me, will I be happy about it”. I am a huge supporter of freedom of speech but seriously people need to be prudent. You can just be saying things like that persons leg is fat, that person needs to lose some pounds, that person needs to eat a burger, that person looks gay, that person’s makeup looks like wack. So what if someone is gay, thin, or fat. Common guys, can you go to your boss at work and tell him/her that he/she is fat and the answer is No. People need to think before they write, words hurt people and celebrities are no different. They are human beings like you and me.

    • remi

      August 20, 2012 at 4:20 pm

      so we should only make comments we can say to our bosses?

    • SongSeungHoon

      August 20, 2012 at 7:02 pm

      Remi, it’s a matter of having self control of what you say or write. The same kind of self control I have or you have that will make you not lash out at your boss even if you are pissed. You can’t just have people with “diarrhea of the mouth”: (people that keep blabbering and can’t control what they say or write regardless of if it hurts someone). This topic is really touchy to me because I have always been very slim and sometimes the kind of things some Nigerians here say to me are very hurtful. Remi, the main thing is if I saw you in a grocery store you will probably not appreciate me coming to tell you that you are thin/fat /dressed gay/your make-up looks like a drag queen/you need to sign up for gym membership because your leg is too fat; do unto others as you want others to do unto you that’s just it. Freedom of speech and all these technology are awesome, but sometimes people misuse it and forget the most important thing which is accountability. Remi, I hope you get what I am trying to say. Have a good Monday.
