She accessorized her look with a braided bun with a simple center-parting , light grey smoky eyes, emerald and diamond earrings and ring and a pair of strappy silver metallic sandals.

 Brooklyn Decker

 Tiwa Savage

Tiwa Savage

It’s Tiwa Savage! Mavin Records first lady is always one to watch at red carpet events and on Saturday 29th September 2012 at the Elite Model Look Nigeria 2012 Finale at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos, Tiwa proved she can roll with the “big girls” by donning the chic peplum dress by the British design label.

Looking simple and fab in the show stopping dress, Tiwa added a pop of colour to her look by opting for luscious pink lips and red nail polish. She also accessorized with bangs and black heels.

The Stella McCartney Peplum Dress
The Stella McCartney black peplum trimmed dress, accented with a transparent yoke and back for a coquettishly elegant allure retails for £1,215 on retail site,

Pretty hard to choose, but do tell us, who wore Stella McCartney better?

      October 4, 2012 at 5:05 pm

      I totally agree. This type of dress requires an up-do hairstyle and minimum accessories. Tiwa Savage should be high though, what messed her outfit is the hair. I did not know where her eyes were?

    I love the way Kate styled hers, followed by the way Selita styled hers. Lovely but tricky dress to style.

    the dress favours ladies with shape and height I think, so no-no for Brooklyn and Selita.
    First up 4 me: Kate Walsh, then Tiwa followed by Scarlett.

    Scarlett Johanssen hands down! The fit on her body is perfect and the strappy sandals go well with the dress. Everyone else did good except Brooklyn Decker. The dress is a loose fit on her and her shoes don’t go and her hair is not nice! Still a hot chick though! Love her boobs!

  26. Daisy

    October 3, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    Kate Walsh. Tiwa’s hair took attention away from the dress and her arms look manly.

  31. stylish med student

    October 3, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    Kate walsh KILLED!!!!! it, I swear, she is what I want to look like when I’m her age. She’s stylish to boot. Her outfits on Private Practice, give me hope, that I can dress like that after med school. I know its just tv, but I love seeing female doctors being represented as hot. Followed by Scar Jo herself. Then Selita. Tiwa is just the other end of the spectrum from Brooklyn, both dont fit too well. Like soemone said, Tiwa’s arms in the dress makes her look mannish, whatever underwear she has on, doesnt fit the dress, cos it makes her boobs/is it her nipples, point east and west, totally worng hair for that dress, accessories, I cant see any, and those horrible shoes, she’s wearing. Crikey, isnt anyone seeing that? They make her feet look weird. End of

    Kate Walsh and Scarlett Johansson. If Kate was modelling the dress down a runway, I would immediately buy it. She sells the dress really well.

    Tiwa should have gotten the dress properly tailor fitted before wearing it.

    Btw, I can afford it. It’s all about priorities. It’s really not that serious @ the silly person that thinks Tiwa’s outfit is fake. The American celebs probably got it for free if you want to diss anyone, I pretty sure Tiwa bought it. Do you think they pay her small change for appearances and weddings. Hater.

    Obviously Kate Walsh, wore it better, it was just like the dress was specifically made for her, her makeup, very subtle, classy and sexy, her accessories, she just killed it, the second for me is Scarlet Johanssen, and finally Tiwa savage, i agree wrong hair do for Tiwa, the hair swallowed her, i think i liked her shoes, i wasnt even seeing the other two!!!

    October 9, 2012 at 6:22 am

    KATE WALSH killed it. She’s an absolute style goddess. Tiwa looked okay but yes, the hair was wrong. In fact her accessories did nothing for the dress.
