Style Pantry - BellaNaija

At the 2013 Academy Awards (Oscars) which took place yesterday Sunday 24th February 2013 in California, BellaNaija Style spotted US based Nigerian fashion stockist and blogger Folake Kuye Huntoon of Style Pantry in a green dress by Jewel by Lisa.

The high neck short sleeve print dress by the Nigerian design label was displayed at the 2012 MTN Lagos Fashion & Design Week in October 2012. Folake styled her dress which features a thigh-high slit with diamond drop earrings, a silver belt to accentuate her waist and a pair of yellow ankle strap heels.

Her look was completed with smoky eyes and an afro.

    On her, the dress is way too long. It looks tacky. Much better on the runway. I feel they should have closed the slit for her because not all legs can pull off the side slit.

    The hair style doesnt complement the outfit either.

      I love the dress and agree with you. I think its wrong choice of shoe. She always looks beautiful but I dont think she looks amazing in this one im afraid.

  • Mana February 25, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Never knew she is a nigerian. She looks more like Kenyan or Eritrean. She looks stunning in that dress! Keep it up girl!

  • Blondie February 25, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    She looks lovely! Does anyone know what hair extensions she’s used please?

    • Inc February 26, 2013 at 2:01 am

      That’s her real hair. She always rocks her natural hair. By the way, Folake, I love everything except the shoes. However, everyone is entitled to their own abi? 🙂

      • Blondie February 26, 2013 at 3:43 pm

        Wow. I now have my inspiration. Thank you 🙂

      • FashionPro February 26, 2013 at 6:56 pm

        its not her real hair. its done really well. she wears a full head of weave.look closely

    • nunu March 27, 2013 at 11:50 am

      thats her real hair

  • Yetunde February 25, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    OMG! She’s my friend, Funmi Kuye’s sister. Small world. Beautiful from head to toe!

    • Mama February 26, 2013 at 4:29 am

      Thank God she is Ur friend….tell her not to wear that dress to another event cos it didn’t week abeg….she is a beauiful girl….she just disgraced us like omotola did…then the shoes are just a wrong number

  • gift February 25, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    The dress photographed better on the model.I also think Folake should have paired it with some metallic heels. The shoes ruined the look for me.

  • Bekee February 25, 2013 at 3:06 pm

    A tad bit too long, prefer d runway chic

  • Tolani bayi February 25, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    Yay she’s ur friend PGA let’s pop champagne for u gets! #wink!

  • honey February 25, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    hey bellanaija,ur here……nigeria’s name is being dragged all over american blogs,its not even funny. u remember when jay z and beyonce was in naija somewhere 2006?? well they’re saying there has been some documents out showing that the money paid to them came from a fund meant for the poor/poverty stricken folks in bayelsa state which was then governed by now president goodluck jonathan… from Ghana but comments coming from these americans over the article are soo ugly and disrespectful,i thought to hint u on it,check out saharareporters 4umf and more… case u report it,credit me hahahahahaha

  • Dee February 25, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    She rocked it better than the model..

  • Stella Kashmoney February 25, 2013 at 5:37 pm

    She looks very nice. So happy to see her on the red carpet. I am not feeling those shoes though….

  • Yvonne February 25, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    I usually like Folake’s style but DAMN that runway chick killed it!!! She had the height and legs for the dress. On Folake it’s too long and her shoes were kind of a poor choice IMO.

  • My February 25, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    Spotted, e ma tan ra yin…..all per-arranged wise up

  • Agbeke February 25, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    Nice!haters back off

  • Fafi February 25, 2013 at 11:58 pm

    Is that hg her hair for real?..i like the dress but not on her,shes too short for this look.

    • FashionPro February 26, 2013 at 6:59 pm

      its not her real hair. its done really well. she wears a full head of weave.look closely

  • Gigi February 26, 2013 at 4:05 am

    Looks too casual for the oscars

  • Omega Female February 26, 2013 at 5:50 am

    check her blog for better pictures of the dress…

  • mawa February 26, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    Horrible dress to me…wouldn’t rock even if I was paid to….

  • haters anonymous February 26, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    one word

  • chancey February 26, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    very niceeee

  • @ajiriavae February 26, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    I like the dress but it’s too long on her. Not feeling the choice of shoes. Cuts off her leg and makes it look shorter. I like everything else. Good choice.

  • FashionPro February 26, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    lovely dress by JBL, but a tad too long for the lady. Perhaps darker and higher shoes would have made it work better. Pretty face, wish she held that hair or straightened it. Still happy for nigerians making strides.

  • D Fairy GodSister February 28, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Love the dress, just wish she’d held up her hair so we could see her pretty face a little more…. Plus I think I’d have gone for duller coloured; the dress is bright enough.

    • D Fairy GodSister February 28, 2013 at 9:46 pm

      Duller coloured shoes…
