Genevieve Nnaji sizzles in a White Andrea Iyamah Jumpsuit at the TIFF Premiere of Half of a Yellow Sun

Published

Work it Genny!

Today, the anticipated Toronto International Film Festival premiere of Half of a Yellow Sun is presently taking place in Canada and the stars are all out.

Nollywood superstar Genevieve Nnaji who plays Ms. Adebayo in the movie, sizzled at the premiere in a contemporary white jumpsuit.

It was definitely Genny’s big Hollywood debut and I really wanted her to make a splash in a gorgeous dress but her white jumpsuit definitely didn’t disappoint.

The piece by Nigerian design label Andrea Iyamah was styled with diamond stud earrings, a stunning gold belt, a white clutch and gold bracelets.

A sleek ponytail and pink lipstick completed the look.

      Let’s see the back na!
      BTW, Fabric doesn’t look good, maybe it’s the pohto sha.
      Excellent style as usual by Genevieve

      I agree, the fabric looks stiff and cheap (esp around the hips). The pants could have been hemmed a couple cms too. But she pretty much looks flawless otherwise.

      She’s trying too hard to be BEYONCE at the Grammys. Yes! I said it! She needs to get herself an IDENTITY!

    She looks good, in weird way! I can’t really place what’s off… 90/100

      September 9, 2013 at 12:08 am

      I thinks it the length of her trouser legs…way too long

      I looovvveeee you Genny, but I would have loved to see just a tiny winny bit of pointed toe shoe sticking out from under the white jumpsuit. So imma give u an 8/10 🙂

    • Let it flow...

      September 9, 2013 at 9:00 am

      The trousers’ length. Too long. Also slightly ill-fitted. Saw it on Andrea’s Iyammah’s website recently and the model rocked it better. Genny should have got it custom-made for her by Andrea.

    Genevieve’s outfit would have gotten a straight A+ however, the pant is way too long .

    • Juba

      September 9, 2013 at 12:32 am

      Nothing do her pant length. it is called style …that’s the way it’s worn in Hollywood. Grab a copy of vogue and know what’s up. Thank me later

    • Sandra

      September 9, 2013 at 12:44 am

      No Ma’am I don’t need to thank you later. I still stand by my point that the pant is a tad too long.

    • madam dearest

      September 9, 2013 at 2:22 am

      Madam fashion forward(tongue in cheek) what edition ?for your mind. am with you @sandra a little peek of her stiletto won’t be that bad or you know something like what beyonce rocked for the Grammys. like it though but I can’t get over the fact that it’s too long.

    • Idak

      September 9, 2013 at 11:25 am

      You don try read Vogue for salon, for your mind you don become fashion critic abi?
      Anonymity is breeding over confidence for folks online. Stop being a slave to fashion trends that are impractical. Everybody suddenly think they are an authority in fashion. Opinion,yes but authority,no.

    • Justanopinion

      September 9, 2013 at 2:00 am

      You can say that again. Lovely outfit, way too long pants u can’t even see her shoes…she’s gorgeous regardless…

    Love the jump suit, and the white is simply flattering…Gene all the way…btw, I’ve been scoping this outfit, I believe it’s by the same designer shopandreaiyamah.com/collections/f-w-2013/products/preorder-iva . Bellanaija, please confirm and post the designer

      Hi Bambi, you are such an excellent BellaNaija Style watcher.

      Yes! Her stylist Veronica Ebie-Odeka has confirmed it is Andrea Iyamah.

  12. lola

    September 9, 2013 at 12:47 am

    With the way naija bloggers are hyping genevieve in this movie, you would think she played the role of Kainene not to even mention Olanna.

    • Bella Noire

      September 9, 2013 at 1:03 am

      Abeg, meshonu. Viola Davis got nominated for an Oscar for being a movie for like 3 minutes. Everything must start somewhere.

    • madam dearest

      September 9, 2013 at 1:57 am

      abeg go take several sits, before you start spewing ignorance take time to watch a movie and not 3rd person narration and if you still stand by your “like 3mins” then go back to your mathematics class pls pls pls.

    • i cannae remember my name

      September 9, 2013 at 10:39 am

      @ Madam Dearest: There’s a movie called ‘DOUBT’ starring Meryls Streep, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams. Viola earned her first Oscar nomination there for her approx. 15 min performance. I’m sure you’re thinking of ‘THE HELP’ but in this case, I’m sure (s)he’s referring to the movie DOUBT. You should watch it.

    • lola

      September 9, 2013 at 2:03 pm

      lol. this genny fans never disappoint. Did i hit a nerve? you be mumu o. you are comparing Viola Davis’ 3 mins role, a fine actress at that with Genevieve? What you smoking girl? Viola and Genevieve shouldnt be in the same sentence. I didnt even see her in the trailer featured on the TIFF website by the way.

      You all need to come at me with a better shot and stop using the word hater. That word is so tired, battered and so 1950’s.

    • ILoveGenevieve

      September 9, 2013 at 6:31 pm

      @Lola, Genevieve is a fine actress TOO. If in same roles Viola has been offered with same director and privileges you will get EQUALLY GOOD RESULT. Btw, I don’t think hit a nerve ….it’s just that people can’t stupidity you know? Stifle yourself.

    • lola

      September 10, 2013 at 5:15 pm

      @ilovegenevieve. You are a stan. That is all. Well, everyone is entitled to their opinion at the end of the day. She isnt a fine actress! Give me some Nse Ikpe Etim any day. #thatswhatimtambout

    • ILoveGenevieve

      September 11, 2013 at 6:27 pm

      I think it’s condensing arguing who is a fine actress between Genevieve and whatever. Horses don’t run on river.

    I was at this event but had to queue on the rush line cos I could not get the ticket a day before as I also came to canada as a tourist. The queue was tooooo long and only the first thirty could get it! After it was announced that the whole theatre was full and people should either go home or stay to watch another movie…. Everyone was disappointed cos it was kind of could and everyone was hopeful…. Well, we did not lose totally the Toronto Eaton Centre was 2 mins walk away so you can console yourself with some fantastic shopping! Cheers everyone!

The queue was tooooo long and only the first thirty could get into the theatre! After it was announced that the whole theatre was full and people should either go home or stay to watch another movie…. Everyone was disappointed cos it was kind of cold and everyone was hopeful….

    • Yve

      September 10, 2013 at 4:56 pm

      @ Yelz, Genevieve is fine but Kim is finer. even way back when she was younger is all I’m saying. So you rest.

    • Plato

    Oh she looks FLAWLESS. The pants could have been about 1-2cm shorter, it’ll still be long enough for the style, but more “straighter”, instead of the way it bends slightly here. Love her hair & make-up, love it all!
    and Onyeka Onwenu is The Queen Mother, so no faults with her.

    For every cloth designed by a designer there is always a motive of how it should be worn and how it should fit, I’m sure the designer luvs the way it’s been rocked and Genevieve neva goes wrong with fashion,that I know.

    The jumpsuit is supposed to be long but NOT THAT LONG. Genny needed higher shoes or a I inch hem.
    Rocsi started the trend way back and it suited her perfectly.
