Darey Art-Alade‘s anticipated show Love Like a Movie took place on Sunday 17th February 2013 at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The critically acclaimed show, co-hosted briefly by pregnant American reality TV star Kim Kardashian, saw celebrities including Tiwa Savage, Skales, Ramsey Nouah, Yvonne “Vixen” Ekwere, Annie Idibia, Chidi Mokeme and Don Jazzy in attendance.

From the red carpet to all the on-stage performances and pyrotechnics, the show was a sight to behold. BellaNaija Style brings you a few of the must see fashion choices of the night.

Eku Edewor in Bridget Awosika
M-Net’s Studio 53 Extra co-host Eku Edewor rocked an edgy ensemble to the Love Like a Movie concert on Sunday.

After dazzling in a Bunmi Koko Couture creation last Wednesday at the premiere of Flower Girl, Eku opted for another dress by a Nigerian design label – Bridget Awosika. Her sheer black long sleeve blouse and cut-out white and pink skirt from the label’s 2012 MTN Lagos Fashion & Design Week presentation complemented her black-and-white strap heels.

For her beauty for the evening, Eku Edewor who rocked bangs, opted for smoky eyes and a nude pout. We like her choice of not accessorizing as it made us effectively see the drama of the outfit.

Darey Art-Alade in Udeshi for Fusion Lagos
The man of the night Darey Art-Alade didn’t let the ladies take all the shine on Sunday evening.

The Soul Muzik exec arrived on the red carpet in a bespoke Udeshi for Fusion Lagos tuxedo. The tailored black single button suit which includes a trim shawl lapel and inset side pockets, was paired with a white shirt, a black velvet bow-tie and black shoes.

He also added a touch of sparkle with his diamond studs.

Nigeria media personality Toke Makinwa knows how to make a statement on the red carpet and Sunday’s show was no different.

The 28 year old VHS TV presenter sashayed down the red carpet in an Ejiro Amos Tafiri number. Her off the shoulder grey sweetheart neckline ruffled dress with embellishments on the bodice and a slit was displayed at the 2012 MTN Lagos Fashion and Design Week.

Toke let her locks down and accessorized the frock with gold earrings and rings and a pair of grey pumps. Her look was completed with grey eye shadow and a pink pout.
