Très Chic! Blogger Linda Ikeji covers StyleMania Magazine’s May 2013 “The New Generation” Issue

Mania May 2013 Issue - Linda Ikeji - BellaNaija01

Ace Nigerian blogger Linda Ikeji is the muse for StyleMania Magazine‘s “The New Generation” May 2013 Issue.

Sporting bangs on the cover and an Ituen Basi outfit, she reveals to the fashion publication her journey to stardom and her immense relevance in Nigeria today.

Inside the issue, Linda also rocks two different outfits by Ituen Basi; a multi-coloured print blouse and newspaper skirt as well as a flirty black dress.

Also featured in the issue are profiles of a few remarkable young individuals including Tunde Aladese (Head Writer, Tinsel), Ehizogie Okoeguale (Winner MTV Base VJ Search), Shalom Obi (Budding Supermodel), DJ Obi (Official DJ, Syndik8 Records), Akanimoh Umoh (Sensational Artist), Anniette James Ekiko (AJE Filmworks) and Aderonke Adebanjo (On Air Personality, Smooth FM).

This issue’s fashion spread centers on muted colours with a sporty feel. Another remarkable perspective is StyleMania’s tribute to literary icon Chinua Achebe in form of a fashion editorial.
