Mo’Cheddah has been MIA for a while at red carpet and social events but boy did she make a comeback in an April by Kunbi halter neck midi white dress with lace detail on the back.

Ene Maya Lawani in Louise Goldin
Ok, we are having a déjà vu moment right now. Reason? Ene Maya Lawani rocked a green striped Louise Goldin spring 2011 dress which has been worn by two international stars – Rihanna and Katy Perry (in different colours)

The long sleeve dress with sheer detail on the arms and legs worn by the former beauty queen was accessorized with chandelier earrings, diamond rings and a silver clutch.

She finished her look with red lips and a pixie hair cut. She also rocked the same $895 Valentino Rockstud Slingback as Tiwa Savage but in black.

Nigerian designer Ugonna Omeruo was also present at the launch of M.A.C Cosmetics in Lagos.

The creative director of House of Nwocha wore a green lace dress by her design label. She accentuated her figure with a silver belt and accessorized with diamond rings and earrings, a black python clutch and a pair of white strap heels.

Her wavy locks swept to the side complimented her luscious nude pout.

Toke Makinwa in House of Marie
28 year old media personality Toke Makinwa was also one to watch out for at the official launch of M.A.C Cosmetics.

Hitting the scene in a print House of Marie dress with a side fringe, the VHS presenter let her locks down for the event. Her dressed displayed at the 2012 MTN Lagos Fashion & Design Week was accessorized with silver earrings, a silver ball ring, a sequined clutch and a pair of blue spiked pumps.

It seems the pink pout was a trend at the event as Toke Makinwa also opted for the famous colour.

    I think MoCheddah killed it.
    I love Kate Henshaw, I really do, but I do not like what she is wearing.

    Tiwa is the queen, period. And she’s been giving us HIGH END lately. Who is her new stylist??? Love it!
    MoCheddah is second place with that awesome white look BUT the sewing on the side is terrible. Mo, you represent young cool but you must endeavor to finish your looks. Same thing happened the last time you wore April by Kunbi to the awards, your hem was unfinished. Please, prepare in advance!
    Ene looks a bit better and not as clownish for once. I wish her bra straps were absent. And that earring is off! Must you execute every idea on your body? Edit, edit, edit!
    Toke would have killed it but for that horrible weave. Whoa! Is it a side parting or is it supposed to be a fringe? That lump is what is called pineapple weave. The shoes and bag do not do the outfit any justice. But the dress is fab. Nice makeup too.
    Ugonna looks clean but that material does not work for the style. She looks frumpy and makeshift.
    Kate o! You are beautiful with a banging body as rightfully noted by others but that outfit nor make sense. Ahn ahn! Those leggings are athletic but you’re wearing a lace jacket and African necklace. PLEASE HIRE TIWA’S STYLIST.

    February 9, 2013 at 3:06 pm

    For me, Ugonna Omeruo’s dress does it for me except the exposed cleavage cos I’m not a fan of such. Except that, the whole ensemble is on point. I’m of conservative mindset, so my choice!

    Kate henshaw luks killz,dat figure is 2 die for

  33. commenter

    February 9, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    kate henshaw looks amazing for her age…..i’m almost certain that the stylists go about announcing the name of the designers all these people wear…. annoying really… does tiwa really make a lot of money? just curious really i’m beginning to suspect she joined one of those clothes borrowing clubs where u borrow designer gear for a fee and return… cos i really cant understand how she affords all the gear esp when she doesn’t repeat them, i guess….
    that nwocha designer looks very ordinary, could have been an h&m dress really nothing spec.. mo chedder’s dress was not well tailored on the side…
    ene – no comment, toke’s dress is nice, but she would have looked taller and nicer in nude shoes….and minus the weave which always threatens to swallow her….
    kate henshaw wins all round…..the rest of them look way older than her…

    February 9, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Everyone had at least one spoiler…. my Fave ones are Mochedda (minus that hideous side seam), followed by Tiwa- she shld have kept the hair up or away from her face, and yes-less cleavage (and thats a lot coming from me who doesn’t mind em usually, but there is cleavage n dere is spillage!)

    Kate kate kate- I LOVE dose pants on u, but that’s all….everything else just went downhill so quickly n DAT NECKLACE- FROM WHERE NAA!

    Ene- *exhales*….u just look old.. nice pieces separately, but together, its just…..!

    Toke- I can never understand the fuss bout this one. As for the look d only thing werking in ur favour is d colour of that weave. everything else is normal.

    Ugonna, 3 words- fabric, fabric, fabric—it needn’t be expensive, but it sure doesn’t need to look like table cover.

    The Valentino shoes aren’t Beautiful honestly. Its just there.. And Eku edewor has the exact pair and Bella Naija never made a fuss about it, so why now? *rolls eyes* Tiwa makes a stunning dress look cheap.

    February 10, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    Sorry Tiwa Dsnt look good in that outfit, I prefer it on the model.. Not nice on Tiwa at all but her shoes are nice. BTW those shoes were about £375 or so on Net a porter sale in dec/ jan.

    Am not a fan of Toke but she does look great on that outfit. I like it!

    Kate Henshaw, nice figure for your age, am in awe. But the outfit did not do you any justice. Love you anyway

    February 11, 2013 at 2:51 am

    Tiwa is only wearing cheap copy, she’s not that rich to spend appx N500K on a dress and shoe. Give me break dear.

    Please!!!!!!!!!!!! What does Tiwa do to make so much money to but all her designers dresses that she never repeats?!!! Even the shoes!!!!!

  43. Debs

    February 11, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    Someone should please tell Tiwa to cover up abeg. We know she has a great body but she should quit exposing herself especially now that she’s got a man. phew
    Kate has a great figure but her outfit isnt working for me. she should dress her mature self and not try to be Mocheddah.
    Overall i loved how Ugonna looked…simple & classy and yet not showing too much skin but still keeps you wondering.

  44. Lamz

    February 11, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    I’m a huge fan of Tiwa Savage but I will say this, her style has gone waaay off from when she first burst onto the scene.

    That dress does nothing for her. It’s too small and it looks like she’s bursting out. The shoes are a wrong choice for that dress. The cleavage, the legs and the dress that isn’t sitting right just scream “Trying too hard!” to me.

  45. Tsarah!

    February 11, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    MO CHEDDDDAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH! i want to meet the person that styled you for this event! and who’s your hairdresser? I want that hair! You look stunning!
