Yes, BellaNaija Style is back with another fab edition of Pick Your Fave.
All over the world, top designers always tend to agree that a girl can never go wrong with black. Be it a Little Black Dress or a floor length frock, celebrities including Nse Ikpe Etim at the 2012 AMAAs in House of Nwocha, Julia Roberts at the 2001 Oscars in Valentino and Cate Blanchett at the 2012 MET Costume Gala in Alexander McQueen, have all dazzled in black and today, we have two gorgeous Nigerian personalities rocking that famous colour.
Award winning Nigerian actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Beauty Entrepreneur, Bola Fadina battle it out for your fave in a Vonne Couture black dress from the label’s Black Mamba Collection, displayed at the 2012 Arise Magazine Fashion Week.
She is known as one of the nation’s top thespians and a yummy mother of 4. On Friday 3rd August 2012, our BN Style radar first spotted Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde in this frock at the Lagos Premiere of Last Flight to Abuja which took place at the Palms Shopping Mall, Lekki, Lagos.
Omosexy, as she is fondly called, accessorized her outfit with crystal encrusted chandelier drop down earrings with black studs, silver bracelets and black strap heels. She finished off her look with dark smokey eyes, nude nail polish and a chic up do with center parting.
At the Elite Model Look Nigeria 2012 Finale which took place at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, we felt a striking sense of Déjà vu, when beauty entrepreneur, Bola Fadina of Blush Nigeria, arrived in the same dress as Omotola.
Just like OmoT, Bola Fadina went all black out, she accessorized her outfit with a black clutch with silver chain straps and black heels. Bola added a pop of color to her ensemble by opting for red nail polish and lipstick, a gold stud earring and silver bracelets.
At the 2012 edition of the Arise Magazine Fashion Week which took place from Thursday 8th March – Sunday 11th March 2012 , Nigerian design label, Vonne Couture showcased this dress off its Black Mamba collection.
Although the dress was displayed on the runway with a knee length skirt, it was altered for Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Bola Fadina and was accented with a floor length skirt with a thigh high slit.
Who rocked Vonne Couture better? Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde or Bola Fadina?
