      hahaha, abi?

      Same people on every blog and Thisday Style.

      But that happens everywhere though. Its the same ‘reality stars’ and socialites on YBF, Perez, People, Necolebitchie etc

    Bridget Awosika looked ethereal. Toju’s make-up application looks great. Style tip: Always put your best foot forward, enhance your “assets” while minimizing your lesser “assets”.

    I have 1 thing only to say:
    “þƪέάϨέ,ban Efe Tommy from Public functions.If he insists on coming,ȵơ ϸїӂ of him shd ϐε̲̣̣̣̥ taken nor published”.
    To whom it may concern. Thank Ÿ̲̣̣̣̥ø̲̣̣̥u̶̲̥̅̊

      I have a suggestion before they ban efe tommy they should ban you from social media for refusing to type and communicate like an adult. If you are over the age of 18 you have no business typing anything like this.
      Thanks kindly

      Where is the like button when you need one!! Thank you!! At this age using such letters! Sigh!

      Its obvious he typed the piece from his blackberry phone with the funny lettering. Personally, I cant stand them but hey! its his phone and I would not say its age related anyway

    Nice but would have made more sense if we saw more of the store interior. Setting is a little off but oh well kudos sha. I guess it will be redundant to keep saying your same same invited guests tiwa savge, chika emmanuel, bridget awosika, and co all look good. I tire for that today. Tonto dikeh’s songs have drained me today. Still dey recover.

      thats how they do it, the publishers are biased to pick their friends, their are other stunning people in the crowd but no they will not publish their pics only the efe tommies of this world..dont even know nkan to ko si gan

    Best photo-call I’ve seen in ages. Most people dressed to suit the event. No overdressed/under-dressed ratchet looking people here. And majority had such wonderful style and so well put together! Loving it! And Toju Foyeh’s shoes? Mamma Mia! There are no words to describe the fabulous(ness) of those shoes…

  15. thespywholovedme

    October 17, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    On Tonye Cole and Dayo Ephraim why…..especially tonye….usually so hot…that timberland boot will give me nightmare for days…

  16. Fabulously Chic

    October 17, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    Beautiful pictures all the way… I am still looking for the right word to describe Toju’s shoes. The fabulous-ness is insane. I didn’t see Elohor Aisien’s picture. I saw her shoes that day. I think it was my fave pick. As for Efe Tommy…hate him or love him,the boy can dress. People colour blocked but with this look, the trend might just come back with a bang. He’s so well put together and with ease.
    Tiwa Savage looks good but please,watch your weight,i still love the slim sexy Tiwa.
    Why is Latasha looking old? If you have the answer,please post.
    Did Ono Bello call herself a stylist? And she’s looking like this? She should locate a new job.
    I like when people age with sophistication… Dj Jimmy jatt is aging so well…iLikey!
    Bovi is so appropraitely dressed and i love the dressy shirt with detailed collar. Way to go man….
    Azuka has shown us a new way to wear an all blue ensemble…I love this. She reminded me of Elohor Aisien when she featured on Studio 53extra. classy and chic.
    Veronica is a stylist after my heart… All her creativity doesn’t go into her clients. She reserves some chic-ness for herself.
    Basket mouth’s style has evolved into something else… A man his age and this hot??? Thumbs up Basket.
    Dayo Ephraim looks good. Nice blend of old school classic and today’s fashion.
    Toke Makinwa, makida Moka and a few others are all under the same canopy for me- very event appropraite. Simple and chic.
    Mai Atafo,are you planning to get old at all? *love struck*
    After all said and done,My best dressed for this event
    Male:Efe Tommy
    Female: Toju Foyeh.

    Bella Adenuga Disu is gorgeous. Bridget Awosika looks lovely. Tiwa, please throw that ugly hair in the dust bin or burn it. You know you look better than that. What’s up with naija men looking too feminine nowadays, I’m not feeling the metrosexual look, those hideous tight pants that men wear. Everything from America is NOT right. Congrats, to Toju, I wish her the best.

      Those pumps are by Giuseppe zanotti …saw the, at Barney’s in San Feancisco the other day…retails for about $800. I can tell you for sure that although Zanotti makes the cutest sexiest shoes…their shoes are too uncomfortable. Every their studded flat sandals /slippers are not always comfortable .

    October 18, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    The roll call was tight,well dressed people but biko that guy tolu eros what inspired that outfit blazers,nice trousers and then slip on or palm slippers,where you in the kitchen serving and you were called to take pics i thought veronica was a stylist pls who are her clients?i advise em to withdraw b4 they get the award for worst dressed list.

  42. Gimmer

    October 19, 2012 at 2:59 am

    I see your point…I don’t think it’s their shoes…it’s their feet. Nigerian women don’t generally have the cute feet. Most if the shoes the splurge on are typicll narrow….for leaner feet. So that s why most the shoes look one kind on our feet? Women need o understand the shape of their feet and legs in order to get the shoes that flatter our feet.

    true, Nigerian women rarely have attractive feet anyway. period.
