    Some outfits don’t look very flattering on the wearers. But fashion is all about trials, so hopefully their next outings would be much better.

  15. Not impressed

    October 17, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    Baba God, what are these people wearing… I’m beginning to think this movie might not be great afterall. Which kain nonsense red carpet dressing be this

  16. David

    October 17, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Did you say Hoodrush is trash? That is a bloody lie. This is the best Nigerian movie have seen in my entire life and trust me, have seen plenty.

  17. David

    October 17, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    The acting, story, music, plot and set made sense. My God, why are we so backward in this part of the world? How did what happened at the red carpet translate to the mean the movie is bad? Abeg, lets borrow some sense.

    • Cynthia

      October 17, 2012 at 10:59 pm

      Thank you david, don’t know how dressing on the red carpet interprets if the movie is bad or not.pls think well before you type, haba. I’m weak.

  18. Bolanle

    October 17, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    I have seen Hoodrush, saw it at Ozone. This is my best Nigerian movie ever. I even dropped a tweet on Twitter. Naija filmakers should follow this line

    October 17, 2012 at 10:31 pm

    Nigerians need to start wearing things that flatter them…

  23. Ndidi

    October 17, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    Uche Jombo looks ridiculous, Bimbo Akintola needs to get with times and dress like she’s in the century… LADIES!!! Please note that not all photographers on the red carpets are professionals therefore you have to help them to help you and not look like a masquerade when the pictures come out. If you are going for a red carpet event, consider the cameras and lighting and tone the make up down a bit (especially if you are originally or artificially light skinned). My suggestion, after you’ve done your makeup, before u leave the house use your personal camera (make sure the flash is on) and take a picture. Use that as a guide to correct all flaws. Reduce your powder or like I do sometimes, I use a shade that is about 2 times darker than my skin colour to blend it and it turns out nice. I’m no professional but it has worked form me.

    Hot mess! My heart breaks for Bimbo Akintola, love her to death, one of the best actresses we have, beautiful, confident. but when it comes to fashion, she falls flat. This comes from a place of love, Sis Bimbo, please hire a stylist (you can afford it) or go shopping with a friend who knows. For everyone else, SMH at the mess dripping off this page.

  26. Chiko

    October 18, 2012 at 2:34 am

    I think this whole thing looks a hot mess because of
    a) Tacky outfits and
    b) POOR cameraman skills.

    The lighting is way too harsh, an umbrella on the lights would have made the pictures a bit more bearable

    October 18, 2012 at 5:52 am

    October 18, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    Their consincense suddenly went died u can imagine what Uche and Bimbo is puting on all in the name of fashion. No need for the dress nakedness wld hv been better so we know they want us to see their body. Remember your body is the temple of the Most High

  56. Nnenna

    October 18, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    Uche must never wear hot pants not with legs like this. Your long dresses do you more good. Bimbo, your one night to shine and this is what you came up with. Those shoes need a home, so big and thick. the bag oh no! Somebody get me out of here please!

  57. adelegirl

    October 18, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Today I have decided to adopt “If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all”. So, lips sealed and rolling my eyes!

  58. Aibee

    October 18, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    Uche Jombo Jumbo-Rodriguez, kilode? How could you have left your house looking like this? Aunty Bimbo, I love a woman who appreciate her curves and all but side boobs are a no-no. those shoes are too chunky for the dress and that scarf should have taken a loooooooong stroll.

    There are too many misses to begin to discuss one by one so I’m just going to commend Oreka Godis and KEmi Lala-Akindoju for dressing to suit the event.

    By the way, who are the old men on the red carpet? They remind me of those 3 ‘elders’ on the approach to LAgos near the toll gate,
