      I believe the magazine is a lifestyle magazine and with the awards it shows their direction. Cars, Hotels, Clubs et al alongside fashion are lifestyle choices. Try looking at it from that angle then you just might get it.

    • MissShayee

      October 12, 2012 at 9:29 am

      Even if it’s not an initiative i am crazy about, i have to agree with Priscilla. It is,after all,about lifestyle tinz!

    ladies please start hitting the gym and do some weight training. Dieting alone wont do it.
    Tiwa, on point as usual.
    Tiwa maybe you should share your exercise and diet regimen. People like me would benefit and a lot of other ladies too.

    Wow! Eva Longoria attended her nomination party with that object on her head?
    Tiwa looks beautiful. I wish we could see her face a little bit more.
    House of Nwocha got nominated for? O.K… and Maki Oh and Bridget Awosika are not on the list of nominees?
    Why would they nominate Eku Edewor or Dolapo Oni? Why can’t it be either or both? I hope they are nominating them as a team..

    i particularly like Caterina Bortolussi & Francesca Rosset of Kinabuti because their attire is totally African, yet chic. i think Tiwa looks stunning, so simple, so beautiful. i wish i saw her feet though to see what she completed the outfit with.
