We love a stylish gathering.

Lagos recently witnessed the soft launch of a new online fashion magazine and the launch of a free special edition magazine – FashionKulture Magazine. The magazine which was done in collaboration with TW magazine featured TV personality Misi Molu as the cover girl. Kemi Akande who works with TW magazine is the owner of Fashion Kulture; a pr, events and fashion consultancy.

The tasteful event witnessed a huge turnout of major players from the entertainment and fashion industry. Guests were treated to Cookie Jar and cakes by Andy Clark and sipped on Martini during the shopping and networking soiree which took place at L’Espace concept store.

There were also limited beauty vendors such as EL’MAI hair care range and Bee Daisy hair which where among those selling specialist hair and beauty products. The magazine distributed at the event was free and is available at stores, salons, spas and hotel lounges throughout Lagos. The teaser site is now live.

      toke looks good. i will give her that. just that she gets lighter each time i see her. yes, she’s even all over. but she can leave the chemicals for just a bit. just a bit.

    Am I the only one who can’t stand this Toke of a girl? That same irritating pose every single time! eish! *eyes rolling*

    Is it my eyes or is it the camera? Not sure about these pictures… looks like the result of a pin-hole camera or maybe they are the first honest pictures I have seen in a while.. hope note

    Love Toke’s shoes!!!

  7. Baby

    July 31, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    Bellanaija I think it is time to stop approving any hate comments targeted towards Toke. Dang!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what could this girl possibly have done to anyone to deserve all these hateful comments on EVERY SINGLE posting she appears on. I never knew who she was and within the past year or so, people have been steady going in on her as she gained popularity on the social scene. All hateful comments not constructive criticism.

    I think people need to remember that these people are human beings. There is criticism and there is hate. What do people really gain from being so spiteful? Just so sad and pathetic.

    • miss bliss

      July 31, 2013 at 6:18 pm

      seriously, i duunno what is wrong with these people, how can they complain so much about someone they barely know. Toke is living her life, you all need to go live yours.

    • Tinuade

      July 31, 2013 at 6:27 pm

      as in…..i do not understand the level of venom constantly directed towards this girl. It is worrying and alarming. Can someone explain to me why she became so hated please?

    • Me

      July 31, 2013 at 7:09 pm

      You don’t expect everyone to love her..although i agree that there is constructive criticism and there is hate but I think every celeb goes through this so Toke’s own isn’t a special case.

    • Bleed blue

      August 1, 2013 at 11:36 am

      No dear, Toke’s own IS a special case. I am on BN pretty much everyday and have never known any other person in the limelight to be so berated on such scale. It’s cyber bullying. It really is.

    • lola

      July 31, 2013 at 10:21 pm

      If toke cant take the heat, she can stay out of the damn kitchen! _/_/_/_/

      August 1, 2013 at 10:14 am

      @BAby: there is a reason people are hating on her, i suspect because of her past ‘going-ons’ from her UNILAG days. for me, i’m not a fan but as a fellow woman, its just good to see that she’s making something of herself rather than being a kept woman. The moral of the story is that people always remember. She obviously has tough skin to all the hate otherwise she won’t be everywhere.

    July 31, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    baby go and sleep biko ! try daily mail and see what hate comment is hahahah prepare yourself though, they post racist comments too..

    • miss bliss

      So, its alright to write hateful comment about people. Carry on and all the best

    @ baby! spot on. I mean, I didn’t even know who she was until I started following bella naija. soo much hate for this same toke everywhere she shows up… feel for her
    Nigerians! if its not toke, Halima or uti…well halimas own is hilarious, its like shes begging to be ‘mocked’

  11. Kemi

    July 31, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    Baby mbok go and slide on several seats! Advise your toke that everything in life should be in moderation and she should stop being an attention media whore! She needs to reduce the bleaching too! Skin cancer is real!!!

  12. Mma

    July 31, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    Pretty ladies and hot clothes. Looks fun!

    July 31, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    Honestly, pls tell us if its written somewhere ; hate Toke or u won’t live 2 see anoda day. Dis hatred…..I neva see!

  14. Nigeriangurl

    July 31, 2013 at 9:33 pm

    @ Toto: please take a full picture of yourself and see if your forehead, chest, arms, thighs, buttocks, and toes are the same color.

    If Toke has bleached (which by the way is NONE of my business), she has done it well. It’s her choice, can u please just leave her the hell alone!!!!!

    You sound just like your name. Abeg take several seats. Mtchewwwwww.

  15. IDG

    July 31, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    The way Uti stands though?

    First it was christian louboutin, now its guiseppe zanotti, battle of the fakes. Does latasha realise that one of the wings has fallen off her sandals?

  17. Cool cat

    July 31, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    I don’t like toke but i really don’t see any difference in her skin tone, as a matter of fact she’s quite even. You people should stop hating when you don’t even know these people nor seen them up close.

    The guy in the grey 3 piece suit with dusty lack shirt and tie, dang damnnn hell to the nooooo. What tailor created this monstrosity of a suit?

  18. mimi

    July 31, 2013 at 10:46 pm

    I love Toke and she can never go wrong. People should leave her alone!!! haaa kilode?

    I really love the fact that places like L’Espace exist to give emerging and established designers a place to sell.

    Criticism is a complements Toke! No one hates her. She is only bn described on how she looks and its a normal thing

    August 1, 2013 at 8:51 am

    This photoset can be subtitled: don’t try too hard, let it flow. Kai, fine is a simple thing, you start adding too much wahala and it no longer has that effect…

      True. Maybe the camera and the lights are to blame.

    stop hating on toke I love her and shes doing her thing. and she doesn’t even care about y”all. lol why hate from the outside when you cant even get in. haha

  32. mae

    August 1, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    Toke’s Problem is over-exposure, she’s everywhere, every time. It’s like she’s crowding our space and pple will start resenting her for that. Same thing with Kim Kardashian. Toke needs to take a lil break from the spotlight abeg.

  33. Blackcoffee

    August 1, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    What is happening with Uti and Alex these days,are they now avoiding people’s eyes,we already know you guys are lovers n have accepted already,i like seeing the both of u together.Nice people n pics

  34. olu

    August 1, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    is it possible to leave Toke alone? Even though the more you talk about her, the more popular she gets and the higher her value becomes, trust me.

  35. Aduke

    August 2, 2013 at 5:36 am

    Really luving Kaylah’s whole look. Very simple yet tastefully done and very ladylike! Luv luv luv!! Best look here to me! >>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Gorgeous shoes Toke.

  36. Toke never blunders, Uti made his first faux pas, he wasnt looking good

  37. TheTruth13

    August 2, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    BUT what is Uti wearing! That wet look effect isn’t doing much for him.
