BN Pick Your Fave - Topshop Edition

Karen Igho

Karen Igho

Karen Igho has definitely come a long way since her 2011 Big Brother Amplified victory. The outgoing socialite is now a model, an actress and radio personality – it’s no surprise that her sense of style has also evolved overtime.

At the 2012 Complete Fashion Style Night on Saturday 23rd June 2012 at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, Karen arrived on the black carpet in this Topshop bodycon dress. She accessorized her outfit with stud earrings, a silver cocktail ring, a black clutch and black peep toe shoes.

She finished off her look with wavy locks and red lips.

Coronation Street TV star, Michelle Keegan was the second to be spotted in this dress in July 2012 to celebrate her 25th birthday at the Anaya Night Club, London, UK.

The brunette beauty let her gorgeous locks down and opted for red lipstick. She accessorized her outfit with a green ring, silver hoop earrings, nude peep toe platforms and a studded black shoulder bag.

On Thursday 8th November 2012, rising Nollywood starlet, Damilola Adegbite rocked a modified version of this dress to the Channel O Exclusive Hollywood House Party in Lagos.

Damilola Adegbite, who stars in an upcoming romantic comedy – Flower Girl by Michelle Bello, accessorized her frock with bold earrings, silver bracelets, an ivory clutch, ankle bracelet and red peep toes.

Yvonne Okoro

Just like Damilola Adegbite, Ghollywood sensation, Yvonne Okoro arrived at the launch of music act, D-Black‘s latest album in a mini version of the dress.

On Sunday 16th December 2012, the movie star who rocked her curly mane arrived with other Ghanaian actors including Majid Michel, Jackie Appiah and Yvonne Nelson for the album launch in Accra. Yvonne stole the spotlight in affordable style, accessorizing her frock with a bold statement green ring, purple drop earrings, a brown satin clutch and pointy red pumps with a golden heel effect.

    The dress looks better when worn at mid-length, which is one reason Karen looks best. Yvonne Okoro has a pretty face. I like the contrast of her chocolate skin to her jet black hair. Nice. I am assuming that with the last name of “Okoro” she may have some Igbo roots or maybe its just her stage name.

    for me, its Michelle (i love her shoes), kaKren, Yvonne and Damilola. Dami’s is too short and d dress looks classier and better as maxi. Yvonne pulled it nicely tho.

  45. TC

    December 22, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    karen’s got the body for the dress, she woulda nailed it if it was a bit shorter. Dami looks trashy, she’s trying too hard! keagan was ok….Yvonne nailed it for me!
