    I love this kind of coverage, cos we can really get the claws out (kidding!!…..not really 😉
    1. Well done Avi and co. It might be an illusion like a lot of naija things, but Temple muse has made luxury retail look viable in Lagos, and they’ve definitely made it more fun.
    2. Lagos bigz gelz seem to think that if the bag is posh and the hair is Brazilian, the outfit will take care of itself. There are many examples here of why that is a fallacy.
    3. Amy J. Go to to see images of natural hair that looks stunning in all textures and lengths. There is no need to be jaga-jaga at this type of event.
    4. The white dudes. Hmmm… I respect my elders so I will not talk.
    5. Bola Balogun looks adorably retro. Great use of colour
    6. Thivany Hamba. You are a designer. That thing makes you look short and wide. Stop it.
    7. Eku…cute but a little extra for the event maybe.
    8. I don’t know if she is borrow-posing but the girl in the blue trousers needs to hike up that hem.
    All in all those who kept it simple and fresh seem to have come out on top.

      How is her hair jagajaga now?The only reason you think her hair is not nice is because you are comparing it to weaves. Do you know the hair texture of those that you are referring her to?Must all natural hair be styled in the same manner?Some of you just open your mouths without thinking…abeg sit down jare!

    Nice event with a well dressed bunch.
    The pic of Bola Balogun and Agbani is lovely! Like what they did with the colors .
    Tiwa Savage looks nice too but might be a touch overdressed for the occasion.

    Exactly why Tommy Hilfiger opened his stinking mouth to say his brand are n’tmade for blacks. Matthew Williamson is a great designer but this overpriced collection are not better than what we get from our African designers. I”ve seen it all working for NAP.
