    • mimi

      February 11, 2013 at 9:33 pm

      hmm n y’all should back off. chioma does look great. Actually she was the only one i noticed. she hasnt been on the red carpet of late and so as they say absence makes the heart fonder. note to other celebrities that are a constant feature on the red carpet, lay off for a bit.

    • anon

      February 12, 2013 at 1:15 pm

      Not big on exposed boobs and will not wear it myself, but hers were not about to fall out. The dress is not made for someone with excessive mammary glands. That is why is works on her.

    • Winny

      February 12, 2013 at 10:22 pm

      It did not work on her look at the model that is how the dress is supposed to fit.Truth be told.

    Munachi looked really nice. Best I’ve seen her look in a while, she should keep up the good work.

    I would have loved to see pics of the MAC goods/pricing details.

    • cool cat

      February 12, 2013 at 11:12 am

      are you a learner? how can you not know the price of mac cosmetics? besides, you don’t need price, you just buy!

    • Asaa

      February 12, 2013 at 12:54 pm

      shut up! Do you think everyone uses MAC? It’s one of the cheap brands if you don’t know! All you Nija mgbekes thinking MAC is all that! MAC is good but not all that! I assure you that Bobbi Brown and Iman are way better!

    • Winny

      February 12, 2013 at 10:26 pm

      We can’t all be Runz Babe she asked a legitimate question, we all know how everything is quadruple the its price in naija.

    • Hmmm

      February 28, 2013 at 3:06 pm

      At all oh. Iman is not so great, made in China grade B mass market quality. MAC uses grade A usa quality for their color products. For higher end products, Chanel and Erno Laszlo are pretty good. I use black opal for my skincare and makeup, and it works best for me sha and it’s also grade A usa quality with correct prices.

    Yeaa,finally Toke put her finger out… that the chick behind makeup,Banke?(Lipsealed) Eku look nice,and simple,but that hair style is not for every body…Muna like her,but why is she ageing? My best look remain,Mocheddah,Elohor,Tiwa(look at those legs,damn it),Zizi(never ageing mama)…Chidyma,after seeing that dress on Rita Dominic on the cover of Mag,it look better on her,I know the dress cost about N40k or there about,but hell No,it didn’t flatter your chest region…Overall Nice event!

    Reading through the comments and I just can’t understand why anyone would say Kate Henshaw looks great. Like are you guys blind? She has never looked more ridiculous in her entire life

    • R.J

      February 11, 2013 at 8:13 pm

      Exactly what I was thinking! That jacket looks so awkward!

    • Ready

      February 12, 2013 at 10:06 am

      She reminded me of a Spanish matador. Just imagine the leggings or jacket in red.

      On another note, it grinds my gears that Yvonne Ekwere calls herself a vixen. Even if other people pressed the name on her, she should have rejected it. Each time I see her on a red carpet, I look hard to see where she got the name from, and years later, I still haven’t.

      I totally agree no single person made mention of the person that brought the franchise into the country , all the red carpet folks most probably do not even know who the man behind the business is i guess lagosians are all about the show i hope it will be affordable or will it be tax free cause thats how its sold in Barbados

    February 12, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    Uti!!!! Always well dressed! Nice pose too! Chidinma needs to watch her weight. Olisa should visit a gym. Kate looks good. Age is in the mind, nothing wrong with her flaunting her shape. Dolapo looks god. Eku looks so oyibo here sha! Tiwa! Abeg!! This free show is too much now Haba!!

    Was at the event. It was HOT! Terribly hot. It was even an outdoor event sef.for me though, everyone looked really good. Thats what an event like this is sopposed to lok like. Kate rocked the show as she was the anchor and Tiwa kill it too(but i bin dey fear say her breasts go pour comot for the dress) Muna Eku Mo’cheda Banke Tara Elohor Uti Toke all looked amazing. Not forgetting ma fav actress Chioma who i saw has trimmed alot and looked lovely. Her hair looked nice save for when the heat was unbearable and made her looked like she just showered….lol but she looked sweet and was amazed when i went to say hi to her…..she was so warm and spent a few mins with me gisting unlike some others that form like say dem nor dey shit (excuse ma french) She cool. Nice gal. Muna was cool as well. No bad air around d gals.

  58. Kunbi

    February 12, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    Dolapo Oni, what a beauty and always keeps it classy. She’s my girl crush.
    Chioma is such a pretty woman.
    Uti, na wa for this your military pose, u must practice it in the mirror everytime. Muna looks lovely. Banke is definitely pregnant but I hate those hot pink lip gloss on women. Madam Kate, keep looking lovely. Mocheddah, you are stunning.
    Last but not the least, Tiwa, has one of the best bodies, her legs are simply HOT.

    February 13, 2013 at 6:53 am

    Wow, I’m late
    I was at the event and boy o boy!!! Was it hot! Was so upset! Very uncomfy and had no direction! My verdict and best picks for the night.

    Muna – Yes…not bad at all
    Stephanie Coker – cute
    Sarah ofili – lovely – really lovely
    Kiki Kamanu – Fresh on the red carpet
    Kaylah – hot!! That babe has a banging figure what?? That picture did no justice, her waist slim, hips out, bum…lovely! She is a cutie! Nice body to the voice I hear on the radio
    Elohor – subtle and nice
    Ufoma- classy
    Month chedda- lovely in all white
    Dolapo – very very chic for a small lady!
    Kemi Akande & Ifeoma Odogwu – funky fresh
    Latasha – not bad
    Uti – Apparently looks nice honestly
    Yaw- love your outfit – very nice 🙂
    Chioma Chulwuka – looks fab
    Lola Oj – you are a cutie!

    Some nameless people did it for me. PS: I think this site should try and get the names of all the guests

    Not feeling the following
    Olisa – those jeans tho…boring
    Vixen Vonne – always a hint of razzzzzzzzness going on in her looks, the hair sucks
    Zizi – not that great
    Kate( great figure but I would have expected some look on her like Dolapo oni – however she was a great host!
    Tara— nope
    Tiwa- over exposure – great legs by the way
    Eku- looks frail
    Lamide Akala- haba, razzzzzz
    Daddy uncle Freeze- bad shape, fine face- nice shirt
    DJ sose- undecided
    Nina and Muka – the hair doesn’t suit your face
    Toke- nice dress (I love house of Marie)- bad hair and she looked a bit old, finally see the hands, na wa @ 28,hmm, plus I didn’t like the shoes, too busy and chunky for the dress, could have worn a nice sexy strappy sandal
    Ene Lawani – oh well, no curves, pretty face

    Oh well, that will be all, Nigerians are getting better, a little here and there and we will get there.

    Have a good day y’all.

    @ Analyst…if I knew who I were I’d kiss u because for the first time I’m reading an honest commentary of someone who KNOWS exactly what they are talking about and the pedestrian crap often touted by inexperienced eyes on this site. I get sick of the endless praises of what seem to be the obvious eg Tiwa, Eku, for crying out loud Chioma Chikwura?, Dolapo, Elohor….are they really such great dressers or is it another popularity contest? Anyway you were spot on and I’m glad someone out there is thinking outside the box.
