Are You Loving Toolz’ Black Velvet Dress to host the Glo X-Factor?



Toolz - September 2013 - BellaNaija

Media personality Toolz is bringing some major va va voom to the Glo X-Factor singing competition.

After showing-off her awe-mazing curves in an embellished frock last week (Click here to read), she’s giving men another reason to lust and women to envy in this black dress.

Toolz shared these images of her outfit. The beautiful off the shoulder velvet gown, which features long sleeves and a fringe skirt by Amarelis, oozed red carpet glamour.

To bring more show stopping action to the dress, she styled it with silver drop earrings and a matching necklace. Her look was completed with a sleek up do, and pink lipstick.

Are you loving it?

    Even BN most be bored stiff talking about Toolz every other day; or are you not? You are a lifestyle website, discover other people/talents/faces/stuff. It’s just plain lazy and unimaginative to talk about the same clique every time.

      Why are you all abusing BN? They are not the only ones doing it. Almost all the entertainment webbies are stalking instagram and twitter for their stories. Its all about which news sells. If you want make dem fisho you everyday go get a hot bod and pose semi nude for instagram or date a famous person or in nja bleach ya skin well well, get a Russian accent, dress with killer styles or yarn rubbish on vlogs. Voila instant celebrity! As long as you get the pages clicking, BN will fisho you…aigght!

    Honestly , what do you boys and girls like about this lady’s stature . This is way out of normal for an average African girl at this day and age. The ass is too big and also she hardly pack herself when on shows except one off. imagine , no kids yet and she is like this , if given birth to two , you will all dislike this stature
    Also my dear , take care of your skin , it doesn’t come nice with all this make up

    • Idak

      September 13, 2013 at 1:54 pm

      That ass is not too big o!
      No dey talk that kind thing.

      thanks dem, no ffence to her but I think she should loose some weight cos its gonna start telling on her knees as she gets older…. and I mention again it will tell on her knees…. the load is too much …..

    • Tayo

      September 14, 2013 at 2:35 am

      You are so dump u call that a big ass? I guess u must be so shapeless that’s y u are hating this babe.this is true african body not them skinny western culture girls with pimples breast and nothing to grab whether u like it or not we men always wanna grab somtin and tab that ass,thats y heads turn when she passes by…..

    • Me

      September 16, 2013 at 10:05 am

      Well @dem, for starters she didn’t create herself so she didn’t hv a choice of d size of ass or boobs she wanted cos God didn’t ask us to pick, so she has to appreciate it and deal wit it d best way she can. I agree, she is big for a lady without kids bt dissin her will nt make her lose d weight. Am sure make-up is part of d package wen u hv to do shows like dis except dat d picture quality is low, I guess if she used a studio camera, u would b sayin her skin looks “flawless”. I also do believe dat we hv seen pics of her workout routines wich seems vigorous to me wich shld b commended cos she is tryin. If u don’t like her or wat u see, dats ur opinion, leave oda pple wit theirs. Plus she has a guy, let him b d one to complain……

    September 13, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    I feel its just a simple gown anyone can rock. Just that Toolz figure makes it look too *dressy* as u guys said. Wont blame her, it’s her shape. I think my sister has a body like that any attire just look too dressy on her.

  14. musa

    September 13, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    That Girl get a big butty, That Girl get a big Yanshhhhhhhh!!!! Now i understand better why Iyanya sang that song. Soon we’ll realize that the song was dedicated to Toolz. But on a serious note, this girl Toolz get Yansh oooo! Chai. I wish i was Capt. Demunre. That guy is a made Man. Anyway fine girl.. beta pikin you look good.

  15. hanny

    September 13, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    Exactly! I wonder if its only toolz,toke,tiwa,etc that exist at all. I give you an F bella naija for lack of imagination. Plus is she hosting “The price is right”? Abeg this overdressing doesn’t make sense jooor!

  16. ella

    September 13, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    Joan God bless u! As if their clique makes up Lagos,Nigeria. Africa! Irritated at bellanaija for doing the same thing over and over again! Toolz! Eku! Dolapo!vonne!tiannah! Should I go on? U don’t inspire us anymore! Loads of talented people to discover but this is lagos, bellanaija is just so cliche! Same shit, different days! Moving on! God bless u joan.

    Like nigerian aren’t dumb, u snub the ones trying their best to make it and over hype these people. Yes they hav talent but it’s not even done this way abroad, I rest my case Cos this ain’t gonna change? Yawn, Btw tools figure is not y definition of sexy! And y all know it but sha let’s keep her believing it!

    • Idak

      September 13, 2013 at 1:56 pm

      The definition of sexy is subjective. The way you feel about Toolz is the same way some people feel about Yvonne Nelson.
      Different flavours for different humans.

    It makes me laugh so many people are up here criticizing her body and her face. I guess all of you are perfect? lol People are so negative, I feel sorry for you. You shouldn’t be always putting people down. Yes your opinion is free to express but you’re part of society’s problem with all your negativity.

  21. Chu-Chu

    September 13, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    In my opinion i think she is over dressed, i mean, cant her stylist take a cue from the way Khloe Kardashian dressed when she co hosted Xfactor in America…Nigerians too dey over do gaan sef…

    • jcsgrl

      September 13, 2013 at 3:43 pm

      And why must she copy Khloe Kardashian? Abeg free the babe joor. Go and host your own show and wear what you want. Variety is the spice of life. If she comes wearing casual clothes, una go begin kosh am. Oh she’s not taking her job serious, dis dat dis dat. abeg take several seats

      Urm hon sorry don’t nobody know you so don’t bother exposing it. Toolz got her curves and she’s working it so commot for road. She’s a celebrity in nja. Go and become famous and find something to expose

    September 13, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    Toolz is killing it in that dress. Love it. And all of you crying overexposure should go and rest. They are media personalities, of cos they are gonna be over-exposed.

    Sha, BN I agree with Joan. Start stalking some other people’s Instagram for a change eg Temi Dollface always has some really nice pictures on there.

  29. musa

    September 13, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    @The Real madam the madam, u must be Temi Dollface’s PR, if not Temi Dollface herself. why didnt u mention my name MUSA OBASEKI. I’m also on Instagram and i have nice pictures

    At every job, there are turn overs. Like we used to have Gloria and now we have Atoke. Different styles but there’s always something unique about everybody’s style. Yes she does write stories about Toke and Toolz a lot because there seemed to be a demand for it. I guess now that the masses have spoken they will readjust their radars. That doesn’t disqualify her hustle though. There’s always quite a bit of spunk in her editorials.

    September 13, 2013 at 5:37 pm

    Yea all this complainants,why don’t you click onto the next post or visit another site?? BN don’t mind them,more pls…But come to think of it,hammering ds babe from backside will be a difficult task for her bobo oooo!J#st some weird thought#she should go for reduction,such an unfair world and some don’t have atall!

  35. Ceetoo

    September 13, 2013 at 5:43 pm

    you all are jokers… una never hala… BN knows what you want and will keep giving it to you in terms of Toke, Tiwa, Toolz et al. go and see other post that dont have this people? 5 comment, 9 comment, meanwhile post with the Ts et al have 79 comments 100 comments and you think they will stop? we all just talking and asking for something different know we dont want something different… abeg the site must go with what will drive traffic and they have found it for now…

    Maybe they just don’t get what the show X-Factor is about. She ought to have a look that fits the occasion. Unless its the theme for that night in particular. Annoying smug look on her face though.

    Why are people going in on “overdressing”? In general Nigerians ALWAYS over dress and she can wear this dress bcoz she has the body for it…plus other xfactor judges in other countries also dress like this. There is no such thing as “overdressed”

  50. Grace

    September 16, 2013 at 9:40 am

    Toolz is definitely a beautiful girl with the right curves everywhere buh my sincere advice to her if anyone can relate that to her is tell her to cut down on wearing too long dresses,her stylist should know better. She can wear kneel length skirts or kneel lenght gown instead of this long dresses….show ur legs girl. She is truly what i call curvylious but menh change ur stylist and do something different, for this dress i don’t like it at all…the bottom made u look even bigger when we are yet to get use to ur hips:)
