    I love it when Nigerian celebrities rock Nigerian designers at international event. Unlike the ones that wear foreign designers. Like it means anything to the designer. Looking fab, as usual.

    That’s how you wear an evening dress. Stay simple but still standout. No Caribbean gold, green, and blue eye shadow with by force red lipstick, out of place hair, unnecessary jewelry to distract your attention from the beautiful dress. Something a lot of our Nigerian celebrities and stylists at home need to learn is to understand pieces without wearing any and everything to ruin an entire look. Also, take good care of your skin & hair/ weave and wear your hair/weave natural looking. Sometimes less is more and it shows more confidence.

    Agbani is one of the most beautiful women. I hope Naija celebrities will wear more Nigerian designers, which means these designers need to bring their A game.

    Meena is such an amazing designer! Since genevieve nnajis purple [email protected] future awards in 2011,I was certain a new talent was ready to wow the fashion community! And Agbani looks just like the A-lister she is in this electric blue number! Well put together,sexy but not vulgar!

    i thought agbani was 31 not 29 at least a popular newspaper quoted that that aside she looks so good and the dress sits better on her than the model

  31. What's my name?

    October 16, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    Gorgeous!! but I must say her makeup was a shade too dark ( you can see the diff , her face is darker than the body like some pointed out earlier). And Vanessa, the “popular newspaper” got it wrong, she’s 29

    Fab design. Agbani really rocked the dress

    Lovely dress and moreso because it’s designed by a Nigerian. Agbani looks divine in it but hers is slightly different to what the model is wearing, it has more sequins around the waist. I prefer Agbani’s though….thumbs up Meena.

    A true queen. I like her skin color a lot.
