    I love Kelechi’s smile. Shows (ME) how warm and genuine his heart is. And also says to me that I don’t want to get on his bad side cos his bad side may be very bad. Yes I saw all this from his smile.

    Love him.

      March 29, 2013 at 11:03 pm

      Why can’t you agree to disagree? Why would you call someone a hater(in caps) because their taste is different from yours? Typical Nigerian, we cannot respect any opinion that’s different from ours unless it’s from the white man. Next time try use sense wey God give you to talk instead of yansh.

    March 28, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Every one actually looked really nice in these pictures.. a damned shame too as i was looking for someone to slag off.. it would be hateration to say “karen tuck your boobs in” cos really they werent even offensive this time around. The dude in the blue pinstrip suit.. i LOVE his afro, whichever carpenter filed that did a good job.. girl in black Angelina Jolie side slit dress.. im tired of seeing them.. she looked smexy all the same *sigh* no one to hate..

  34. infact

    March 28, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    As in why must they serve Oyinbo food……… that profiteroles……….and Olives….I am seeing……….these oyinbo food tastes yakky….any way…………what is wrong with serving indigenous Nigerian finger food, all this Colo-mentality is soooo outdated and boring. Nigerian food is so yummy … to eat my eba now with efo riro and iru.

    March 28, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    Karen Igho and Wana Sambo look gorgeous. The plus sized lady wearing the cut out dress with her boobs hanging out, that dress isn’t appropriate for your figure and it’s quite trashy to have your boobs hanging out. Please leave something to the imagination. 🙂 x

  37. same old,same old.and Karen isnt that supposed to be a tutu?lovely event overall

  40. Titanium

    March 28, 2013 at 10:37 pm

    Karen looks good. But serzly what with so many unsexy and spotty legs on display? More photoshopping needed? or just more pants and longer dressers needed?

  41. Sel

    March 29, 2013 at 12:19 am

    Karen looks good but I think she would have looked better with less bulky shoes

  42. Primrose

    March 29, 2013 at 6:35 am

    Isi Atagamen, is that your own version of ruce Willis for a boyfriend? Abeg make una find young healthy oyibo. Dem full ground well well. Karen, your legs look like twine. You see why tattoos are not good? When your skin is young, they look nice. When you start aging, they look like scars.

  43. Chipolina.

    March 29, 2013 at 9:19 am

    Ladies, pls moisturise, moisturise, moisturise those legs!!

    • Bunmi

      March 29, 2013 at 11:11 pm

      LOL. I think people moisturize but it wouldnt be captured properly by the camera. Some things have to be a little over done when you know you are going to be in front of the camera. I think a better camera should be used at these events. There’s no way the pictures on Bella should still have this kind of quality.

    • Chipolina

      March 31, 2013 at 9:25 am

      Ok o. Lol

    My name is Sean Manuel not Sean Micheals. Those are BDSM bandage dresses. We created a Max Azaria inspired bodycon dress especially for the African woman. We made extra allowance in the rear and hips area while adding a body cinching material in the gut area to smooth out the imperfections and highlight the assets. We design and create sizes up to size 16 (US). Currently we have a modest presence in Miami and huge presence in Johannesburg. Just got into Lagos. Arikiye, Jodie and Kiran were dresses by us for the SPICE HAUTE Party. Look through our facebook and website for our Spring Collections.
