    • JJ October 22, 2012 at 6:27 pm

      So much to say but very little time. All I can say is Mother Teresa, be our optometrist. I beseech you to use your divine tools from above to soothe our eyesore caused by these evil messengers. Stop this pain.

    • M October 23, 2012 at 3:20 am

      For those that keep saying BN shows the same people always , now we know why.

  • T.S. October 22, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    The women came to represent!!! Looking mighty fine.

    She looks like the lady from Basketball Wives L.A.×600.jpg

    • Joan October 22, 2012 at 5:00 pm

      yeah, I thot so too.

    • Ash October 22, 2012 at 7:40 pm

      Malaysia from basketball wives LA right? The resemblance is too much!

      • ij October 23, 2012 at 8:12 am

    • Bunmi October 28, 2012 at 4:10 pm

      That’s EmmaNyra from Iyanya’s video ‘ur waist’

  • Camron October 22, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Too populated event. couldnt finish the pictures. took note of just a few
    – Karen – those buttocks ……… do something or dont get too tight dresses.
    -Essence – ur dress is so cheap for that kinda event
    – Weird MC – hmmmm man or woman???????????
    – Chichi – haba gurl
    -Bovi – if u werent a comedian …………..

  • andie October 22, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Adaora Oleh looks flawless. My gosh!
    Dude in the faux Burberry pants and boots needs to quit.
    Ebuka has become so mature. Love his grown and sexy look these days. Marrryyyyyy mmeeeeeeee

  • laffgal October 22, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    KILODE!!! we need to orientate ourselves on red carpet etiquette and dress sense…these people no try at all…..most of them look so untidy……….i wonder if they didnt look at the mirror before they step out of their various houses.

  • CAMRON October 22, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    too many pictures. couldnt get to the end. hmmmmmmm for Karen, Bovi, Vina and Chichi

  • Partyrider October 22, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    MI those pants are too tight..your balls are all over the pun intended!

  • Madam the Madam October 22, 2012 at 5:09 pm

    I see a couple of ol’ school heads were in the building. Nice, nice.

    Toke Makinwa is usually a miss or meh for me on red carpets. I’m definitely very meh about her outfit.

    My Gad! Toolz has curves for dayyyyssssss. She looks great!

    Waje…hmmmm. I’m leaning towards nope.

    Moet Abebe – love it.

    Gbemi Phillips lost some serious weight…and she actually looks nice at this event. Love the all black ensemble, and toned down hair. Keep it up.

    Yvonne Ekwere – That dress would have worked much better with a different hairdo.

    Kunbi Oyelese looks great.

    I feel like ever since Latasha joined the fashion police, she has started trying small.Keep it up.

    JJC Skillz – TF????

    Eldee’s outfit was confusing.

    There’s an effortless cool about Ada Ogunkeye (Nicole C’s business partner) that I really like.

    LADIES and GENTLEMEN….what???? and

  • cathy October 22, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    adaora oleh, waje , sharon ojong looking fine. too long the list and smh for many badly dress peeps

  • DBA October 22, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    AY needs to chill out with this pose jor…
    Linda Ejiofor is soo pretty….
    Brymo looks HOT though 🙂 …
    Seriously Seyi shay, you should have come naked…
    Its good not seeing aunty KSB in pants under an awkward length dress but then again her dress is ill-fitting….
    Annie looks nice! Is she pregnant again though?….
    Nneka Moses! Mbanu!! Shapewear or suck it in…
    TF is Vina wearing?
    Cordelia looks really nice…

    A lot of other comments I have chosen to reserve.

    • Scarlet Xianne October 22, 2012 at 9:19 pm

      As in! I am so tired of the crotch-hugging pants that guys wear these days. Biko,they should stop hurting our eyes!

  • TINUFORBES October 22, 2012 at 5:26 pm

  • iDAK October 22, 2012 at 5:28 pm

    Way too much pics for any proper criticism.
    btw, Ebuka looked awesome in that suit. The fitting and the colour combination was off the hook.

  • iDAK October 22, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Why does Iyanya always manage to look slightly unbalanced (if you get my point) in his pics?

  • Audrey October 22, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    why did the Bovi guy decide to show us how his testicles are shaped? why?

    • sefi-ann October 23, 2012 at 1:50 am

    Sorry but to impressed at all! Seen better guests at weddings! A few ladies tried, Kunbi O and Oreka but overall, I was underwhelmed…. 🙁

  • Stylista October 22, 2012 at 5:44 pm

  • Princess October 22, 2012 at 5:47 pm

    The pictures are nice, but they are just too much, it took me like forever to finish going tru them.

  • Boo October 22, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    Safe to say

    – Hermes belt don try
    – Shaba (splits) are back in
    – old papas no wan gree, they must be young by fire by force
    – over sized clothes no dey tire pple
    -I must wear all my designer baffs and accessories all at once syndrome is alive
    – I must be weirder than derenle competition is on
    – I will prove to the world leggins is an outfit madness is back
    – I will borrow my younger sisters open toe shoes and let my feet stick out.

    Sha on the flip side, lots of nice looking people. Tokes dress was gorgeous. Stood out the most to me.

    • sauce October 22, 2012 at 8:50 pm

      Safe to say I’m sending my Hermes belt back for a full refund!.

    • Bea October 23, 2012 at 12:16 am

    5. NIYOLA- You need to stop sucking! Kai!
    6. JJC- Only DONJAZZY is allowed to wear pyjamas. Wear something else please!

  • Jess October 22, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    So many things to say, so little time . So many things just threw me off. I’m just here trying to figure out why someone thought it was ok to name himself pencil, and why someone has a sweat patch through a SUIT, and and …

  • Olah October 22, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    Some were really on point, but Chidima needs help big time, she always looks like a slave on red carpet…Oga Bovi……seems you got a – down there….

    Oh Oh…… and ELDEE, to use your own lyrics, You are in your own category.

  • FashionPro October 22, 2012 at 5:59 pm

    Bella its time u switched to slide show gallery or offer the readers thumb nails. The way u have it now is exhausting.


  • iDAK October 22, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    I see Noble has still not gotten in touch with that tailor of his in Aba. He should just get a tape, measure himself and text the man the latest measurements.

    • FUNMI October 23, 2012 at 3:19 pm

      lol…………crack my ribs …………………..

  • Tae October 22, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    A few hits. Lots of misses. A LOT of trendy-by-force and middle-aged “I shan’t ‘gree” people all over the place sha….

  • xxx October 22, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Only Linda did it for me, everyone else was a fail one way or another. Adora, gorgeous girl with gorgeous skin, dress was nice but failed for quality. Naija designers and celebs, it’s not just about the style check the quality. If it looks like aso ebi (Toke Makinwa) or like the tailor next door made it (Waje and Oreka) then is in bad taste! The Praiz guy and Toolz looked good together sha.

  • xxx October 22, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    Bella post my comments, the “fashion industry” in naij needs to do better with finishing n quality.

  • xxx October 22, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    The Gbemi Phillips person looked nice too, just the wrong occasion. Linda, next time do sandals on a dress like that just scrolled back up and the pumps were not happening.

  • Nma October 22, 2012 at 6:25 pm

    Is it just me or does it seem like in bella’s picture posts, the further down u scroll, the worse it gets?

    I almost choked when i scrolled onto Bovi’s

  • Ure October 22, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    yawnnnnnnnnnnnnn well what can i say? i have seen the good, the bad, and the really ugly.

  • fashion freak October 22, 2012 at 6:32 pm

    Adaora Oleh – gorgeous
    Toke Makinwa – stunning
    Dabota Lawson – classy
    Moet Abebe – glam
    Oreka Godis – cute

  • JJ October 22, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    What’s up with most of the men and their crotch area?
    Wizkid’s arms look like a lady’s arms. He probably got them from his mama!
    The – is Waje wearing? even Omawumi? These ladies always look motherly. I hate it.
    Seyi Shay is absolutely beautiful. I’m rooting for her and not her outfit. She needs to do better
    Karen Dolphin Igho……no comment
    Kenny Saint Best- What is she doing there? What does she do?
    Banky W decided to allow his head receive some natural air. I’m happy for you.
    Annie Macaulay Idibia & Gbemi Phillips look amazing. Is Annie really pregnant though?
    Yvonne “Vixen” Ekwere is always trying too hard (style) but rarely looks good.
    Da Bling…da f*ck?
    Latasha Ngwube and Toolz look like they are about to burst out of their dresses. Too tight.
    Rekana Sharon-Ojong, are you ok?
    Chichi Iyiegbuniwe really??
    Bovi’s crotch…whyyyy??
    Daddy Showkey!!!!!!

    • nursecan October 26, 2012 at 12:28 am

    This one was fine:×600.jpg

    but besides her, everyone looked like a hot, fiery mess!!!!!! where do these people buy their clothes from? an 80s thrift store for hobos? DO BETTER

  • Joy October 22, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Hmmmmm nawa o,so toyin lawani has a twin on the yellow carpet wearing dame dress ,girls stop buying cheap dresses

  • Chikaka October 22, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Only one person stood out for me; Dabota Lawson. The oxblood lipstick is so on trend.

    Oreka “Goddess” and Adora Oleh did well too.

    A lot of men aren’t wearing undergarments or are wearing badly fitted undergarments.

    Some ladies should start extending their powder/foundation to their knuckles and knees. If in doubt, get out your camera phone take your fingers and be the judge. They are so obscene.

    A lot of shoes don’t go with what people are wearing and/or the wrong type of shoes were worn for the event.

    Hermes has truly suffered.

      You just saved me from typing long story

  • lala October 22, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    Wow, I just realized that most Nigerian guys and ladies alike have no fashion sense whatsoever…come on, this whole thing looked like a freak show. I can literally handpick the ones that dressed alright and they are not up to 5.

  • Lani October 22, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    We are only looking at the people. Lets take a look at the Headies location too. See plywood up and down and concrete. Our so called celebrity events always look shabby and ill organised. Don’t expect hollywood glamour in a nollywood setting. From the way people are dressed, you can tell that it wasn’t exactly a prestigious event. Do we even expect all of them to wear designer clothes and afford stylists?!

  • B October 22, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    Gbemi Phillips = Best dressed for me…nice red carpet, Most people looked nice!

  • Amazeballs! October 22, 2012 at 7:53 pm

    Dabota Lawson did it for me.

  • tinasheggy October 22, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    Seyi Shay is HOTTTT

    • mimi October 23, 2012 at 4:21 am

      I agree .Seyi na babe.My Brother is obsessed with her .

  • asgrl October 22, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    Its a bloody hip-hop award show, why are these folks dressed like they are going to a white house state dinner?

    I think Chidinma took it home for me. Yes its not the most expensive or sophisticated, but she just looked fresh and effortless.

  • Sharon October 22, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    Ahhhh Bez and Praize can totally Gerrit!!!
    Latasha those heels are too thin for your hips.

  • Bella Niaja Critic October 22, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    So so many pictures, but a few stuck in my memory, the beautiful Adaora Oleh, Dabota Lawson and the nameless lady with the leopard skinned sleeve on her dress. The horrible looking people were so many. Gucci(shoes and belts) and Hermes belts have being over flogged in Naija. Guys what is all this Camel toe on men, oh i saw about 10!! it is disgusting and pray for your testicles. Naija no try at all at all. But some many flawless looking skin. ladies PLEASE STOP WEARING THOSE NASTY ILL FITTING PLATFORMS!!!

  • ShockedAndAfraid October 22, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    JESUS DABOTA LAWSON Oooooooooo havent seeen her since secondary school, she used to be very chocolate skinned omgeeeeee

  • what October 22, 2012 at 8:24 pm

  • Ada October 22, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    Bella my eyes hurt!! Wayyyy too many pictures. Didn’t this event have a dress code?? Well best looks for me are Adora Oleh,Kunbi Oyelese,Dabota Lawson and Gbemi Phillips…..I agree with the person that said Toke’s outfit looks like aso ebi. And WTF is Seyi Shay wearing

  • Didi October 22, 2012 at 8:42 pm

    Dabota Lawson is indeed a queen she looks really good I must say.marry me!!!!!

  • azure lander October 22, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    Can you guys please leave the plus chicks alone? Is it a crime to be curvier and thicker than most….haba this toolz and latasha are very beautiful girls who look good all the time and make effort to dress accordingly. Less of the myopic thinking please.

    • Idak October 23, 2012 at 9:11 am

      Thank you for your apt comment. I may not be a fan of either of the ladies but sure do appreciate them curves. Not all men like it skinny.

  • PJ October 22, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    Wow thanks BN but could you group the pictures like you would normally please? E.g blacks, gold, prints, etc. Thank you for that.

    For me best dressed guys are Efe Tommy, Dayo and JJC Skillz. I hope those are their names. Can someone tell me who is this Efe Tonmy guy? I sincerely admire his dress sense. Different and sharp. The JJ guy is really creative. Even his music video is different.

  • princess October 23, 2012 at 12:12 am

    1. Adora Oleh 2 Moet 3. Dabota 4. Zoe chinaka 5. Praiz 6. iyanya

  • hibiscus October 23, 2012 at 12:16 am

    where do i start to criticise from?
    …am too lazy to write jor anyways oreka Godis was too simple, toke/toolz/vixen trying too hard as usual and zoe chinaka too thin for that dress!!!

  • Bex October 23, 2012 at 12:23 am

    I’m torn between Adaora and Toke. I think i’ll go with Toke. She looks divine in her backless number. Loves it!

  • Tosin October 23, 2012 at 12:25 am

    This your photographer sef, every bird wey fly pass, im must snap. Anyway, let me greet Nigerians well done. You are beautiful. That said…

    See one girl up there Oreka Godis? Why can’t more people dress simple and sweet like her? There are many other lovely, harmonious looks, but for the most part, ova-trying dey disturb some people’s dress-sense.
    All you future celebrities: more singing, less posing.

  • kim October 23, 2012 at 12:48 am

    from the slippers wearing celebrities (who wears slippers to an awards show ??) to the red-carpet gangsta’s to the numerous ‘hermes’ belts…i dont even know where to start? *these photos are making my eyes hurt* even the celebrities who usually look good on the red carpet look horrible..camman guys!

  • Cool October 23, 2012 at 1:35 am

    Best dress is TOOLZ. Love love love. You make me want to be full figured.

  • Khloe October 23, 2012 at 3:14 am

    toke just looks too much. she trys way too hard! by force celebrity. youre not going to a wedding. your going to a music award show girl. look at adorah and gbemi philips. thats how you dress.

    ps: that lace outfit is cheap and tacky.
    hi ebuka 😉

  • wiklo October 23, 2012 at 5:13 am

    is that not Stella Monye behind Wiliki?

  • Berry Choco Latte October 23, 2012 at 8:11 am

    Waaaaaaaaaaay many pics! I can’t even remember who wore what. Overall, I’d give the red carpet a C+ or B- at best. Some got As, a lot of Bs, more Cs and Ds than anything.

  • swish October 23, 2012 at 8:16 am

    best dressed goes to dabota, a few looked good…most of them look horrible,tacky,untidy etc. girls pls tights are to be worn with tops that cover ur bum, enough with the camel toe.

  • Jessy October 23, 2012 at 8:29 am

    Wat kind of shabby dressing is Daddy Shokey wearing on a red carpet? smh… dirty yoruba man… Hissssss

    • Let them say October 23, 2012 at 4:37 pm

      Excuse me????? For your information, daddy showkey is not Yoruba and besides I don’t think it’s right to channel for insult towards his tribe even though he isn’t Yoruba. Shame!

    • Jennifer October 26, 2012 at 6:19 pm

      You guys that would insult someone along with the tribe, are you serious? Please be comprehensible! You don’t even have any right to say he is dirty because you do not know him personally and he doesn’t look dirty from the picture, just because he doesn’t look fantastic doesn’t mean he looks tacky! Gosh.
      Anyway, I don’t know about you guys but Tobi Oyelakin does it for me, she looks effortlessly stunning, not too much, just ideal. Best dressed! (My speculation).
      Toolz looks nice but the belt didn’t do it for me. The pictures are way too much to be adequately analysed.

  • Nnenna October 23, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    Oh dear, Omoni, this would have been your best on any carpet but then you had to go and wear them cookie glasses. Red carpet has been basterdized in this place. Alrightuwo.

    Can someone please say why Waje and Annie Macaulay are dressed like that?
    My best dressed are Omawunmi, Linda Ejiofor, Adora and Tomi.
    There are other fab outfits too but really are they supposed to be for an award night? I may be mistaken but I thought award ceremonies were black tie events.
    Once again, I ask myself why Nigerian female celebrities do not have their own personal makeup artists even if just for such events *sigh*

    I can’t believe some people are actually picking toke’s dress as their best. FOR REAL? That should get one of the worst dressed for me. I’m sorry but that’s just cheap tailoring. The lining under that lace? It’s a crime for someone who is on the red carpet so often to appear in such tasteless nonsense. Hire a stylist and if u have one already then please fire her. Layole

    2.Oreka Godis- Wish the fit of the dress was just one size down, but still looks lovely. Beautiful necklace as well.
    3.My favourite—>IJEOMA ANIEBO!!! Very beautiful girl, simple look yet soo classy!———->

    Modenine- U’r seriously annoying with this ur dressing always! Ahn ahn! In this Naija heat???? Na wa for u o!
    Iyanya- Whats up with that funny pose? Made u look somehow.

  • tomi November 22, 2012 at 2:59 am

    The annoying thing is that these people seem to make such an effort but their outfits still turn out to be EPIC fails!! Girls need to forget about what’s in fashion or on trend, develop their own individual style and wear what suits them!!! I’m tired of all the nasty-ass leggings, stupid looking platform heels, and what not!
