Tracy Nwapa in Ituen Basi, Seyi Shay in Re Bahia, Genevieve Nnaji in Tsemaye Binitie & More Looks from Day 4 of the GTBank LFDW



BellaNaija Style watchers, it’s time for more fashion scoop from the 2013 GTBank Lagos Fashion and Design Week.

On Day 4, which was the final day for presentations, we spotted some fashionistas in a couple of stylish runway looks.

We will bring you all the photos from that day, but check out these shots.

TV Personality Tracy Nwapa made her GTBank Lagos Fashion and Design Week debut on day 4. And boy, did she make an entrance.

She selected a stylish outfit from Ituen Basi, which was displayed at the 2012 MTN Lagos Fashion and Design Week (click here to see).

The Avant-garde multi-coloured feathered jacket and pencil dress was styled with gold stud earrings, a grey knuckle box clutch and a pair of black heels.

She completed the look by opting for red lipstick, and a ponytail.

Nigerian songstress Seyi Shay was also spotted for the first time at the GTBank Fashion Week.

We often see Seyi at events in short figure hugging and girly frocks, so we were happy to see her try something different. She and her stylist Bubu Ogisi selected a white-and-red print tunic from Re Bahia‘s presentation at the 2012 MTN Lagos Fashion and Design Week (click here to see).

Going with the chic bohemian theme, she rocked the tunic with red flared pants. Gold stud earrings, a gold cuff and red heels were her choice for accessories.

The Irawo singer finished with smokey eyes, a nude pout and side-swept ombre locks.

Make-up artist turned designer Jide Adedeji decided on a look from his Spring/Summer 2012 collection “Sartorial Summer”.

In July 2012, BellaNaija Style gave you the first look at the J Reason collection, which had brocade suits, print pants and cool tank tops. (click here to see).

On Day 4, Jide chose a white, blue and silver print blazer from the collection. He paired it with a black shirt, black pants and purple velvet shoes. Jide who seemed to be in touch with his feminine side, completed the look with a brown leather bag.

Folu Storms is one style star to watch out for.

After coming the first runner-up in the MTV Base VJ Search competition, which Ehizojie “Ehiz” Okoeguale won, she secured herself a few gigs. Her recent gig is host of Ndani TV‘s spotlight on the GTBank Lagos Fashion and Design Week.

Through out the fashion week, our BN Glam Cam has spotted Folu supporting Nigerian designers. On Day 4, we saw her in this colourful piece from Viv La Resistance‘s Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection – “Kaleidoscope ‘A Trip”

She accessorized with a black hat and silver necklace. Unfortunately a full length photo of Folu is unavailable as it will have been great to see her choice of shoes. But a pair of ankle strap heels will do the trick, right?

Later in the evening, Folu took to the red carpet in yet another stylish number.

This time a piece by budding design label Ayo Van Elmar, who showcased at the GTBank LFDW. Folu wore the piece exactly like the model.

The dress which features a brown leather halter neck bodice and Ankara skirt, was styled with black strap heels, with an Ankara platform.

Which of Folu’s Day 4 looks are you loving?

Genevieve Nnaji brightened up the red carpet in a yellow dress on day 3 (click here to see), but on day 4 she went with a white and black get-up.

Straight off Tsemaye Binitie‘s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, her stylist Veronica Ebie-Odeka chose a sexy white cut-out top which features a unique asymmetric short sleeve and peplum detail.

I would have preferred Genevieve to rock the black skater skirt as seen on the runway, because we haven’t seen her show her toned legs in a while on the red carpet. But her choice of black velvet pants go quite well with the top.

She accessorized with gold stud earrings, a black clutch and a pair of nude sandals. Wavy locks and red lipstick, was her ideal finish for the look.

On Day 4, Ebony Life TV presenter Dolapo Oni chose to grace the red carpet in a pretty girly frock by Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi, who presented an uber feminine collection. (click here to see)

Her outfit was a modified version of a runway look presented that evening. The dress which features a grey round neckline bodice and print skirt, was styled with gold earrings and a pair of ankle strap gold heels.

She completed her look with pink lipstick and a sleek bun.

    Errrr, are the sleeve’s of Genevieve’s dress really three-quarter? Looks more like short sleeve to me. Meanwhile, we saw Genny’s “toned legs” yesterday na. Remember you showed us her legs in that hi-low yellow dress with the yellow shoes. Some people even commented on her need to exfoliate.
    I’m sure all those featured here are fashionable and the designers are good too, but for some reason, only Dolapo Oni in LDA ticked my boxes. I can totally wear that dress.

      LOOL! you literally took the words out of my mouth – was going to say exactly the same thing, that we saw Genevieve’s “toned” legs yesterday. Maybe Bella forgot. Yeah, like Dolapo’s look too.

      Genny does have toned legs. Did you see the picture she had shorts on? Her legs and thighs where nice and toned. Her skin was nice and clean too so that comment of exfoliation was just unnecessary hating, bad lighting happens sometimes. You people should get a life abeg.

      I would have preferred another pair of shoes with this outfit though.

      Bella Naija needs to school its employee on toned body parts! They just throw the word about …Go and look at Ciara, that is a toned body!

      Hmmm….I’m not hating o but I sat behind Genny on Day 3 of the show and those legs are nowhere near toned.

      You sat behind and saw her legs?? I wonder what people in front saw. Her ass?

    niceeee, but i think i prefer Lanre da Silver, Tsemaye and Re bahia on the models.

    Genny’s look is an epic fail. She looks 10 yrs older. Tracy looks like a pregnant peacock, I can imagine that outfit with her big bosom. Folu storms nailed both looks but wearing the same shoes is a bit too copycat

    • May

      October 31, 2013 at 1:18 pm

      Your comment about Tracy sounds like you’ve a personal vendetta. You can imagine her with her big bosom, but what you see is a well put together outfit which she pulled off as a whole. Stop imagining, the picture is right there to help. sigh

    Loving this new designer – Ayo van Elmar… I see her as the next big thing…Watch out for her!!!!

    How is Genevieve’s outfit a fail? Are you blind? She might not look glam but nothing wrong with her look.haba!! I love seyi shey’s style

  7. Koenigsreich

    October 31, 2013 at 9:49 am

    Folu looks absolutely stunning in Ayo van Elmar!
    I agree with 3rd Kulturen Kid! Ayo van Elmar is definitely the next fashion bang bang explosion theory for Nigeria! Watch out for her 😉 Good luck to AVE , great designs!

    Genevieve you should have worn different shoes …maybe white court shoes with high heels? i think that would have made you nail this look.

    seyi shey you really need to sort your style out man. this outfit is a no. perhaps if bubu herself wore it she will make it work. sometimes you need the right attitude to pull off a look and my darling seyi thats what you dont have. if you wore black skinnies (since you were going for a no fuss look) that would have nailed it. you have nice legs…the skinnies would have moulded them..not this pyjamas.

    i like tracys look..her choice of shoes are better than the models one

    folu storms…its not style if you copy the runway or mannequin sweety

    deji adedeji ..i love it!

    I think Folu looks stunning in AyoVanElmers design. Her works are amazing…that’s a designer going places. You need to check her out… AVE great works of art & design

    Tracee nahhhhhhh that dress isn’t for big bosomed chicks like you. You dress really well on a normal day but for some reason all your red carpet looks are all misses including above. get a stylist for just red carpet if you must pleaseee. this is an epic fail

  15. Tidagee

    October 31, 2013 at 11:27 am

    That’s an an avant-garde outfit by Ayo van Elmar. And Tolu really gave it that signature, carried it well on that body.
    Good work…bravo!

      Ada Ogunkeye is her real name, Folu storms, her stage name…and guess what, anyone is free to go by any moniker whenever they choose! Deal with that already!

  17. Zini

    October 31, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    @lami I am not blind. Infact I have near perfect vision, if you know anything about fashion then you’ll see that theres too much bulk on the lower region. The peplum on the exagerrated hips make genny look 3× fatter than she is. The pieces just do not go together at all

  18. mofe

    October 31, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    lovely clothes by all designers…keep up the good

    This Damilare can wash sha. No be small “toned legs”.

    Anyway, I like Tracy in that Ituen Basi. And I think Folu Storms looks great in VLR. The AVE dress is cute but I would have prefered to see a different pair of shoes with it.

    • Aunty Amebo

      October 31, 2013 at 1:23 pm

      What is this Damilare talk, can’t you see it is listed as Anyway I am loving Tracy’s looks. Yes it tends to look Drama Queen-ish but it is different from the tight dresses she is always seen in.

    • The Real Madam the Madam

      October 31, 2013 at 3:18 pm

      That’s Damilare now. I can recognize his writing style + he’s primarily the main person who’s been writing the articles these days. I guess they just decided to standardize everything by publishing with the BN username.


    October 31, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    I’m loving what I am seeing here. Very stylish people.

  21. Mortie

    October 31, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    I honestly don’t send or care whatever name anyone uses….whether stage or birth but one name for sure rings a bell and is still ringing…. AYO VAN ELMAR!! Lagos Fashion Week possibly couldn’t have been complete without that designer. The bag ladies rocked…so does AYO VAN ELMAR. Big ups!!!

    October 31, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    seyi in Re bahia is very elegant and comfy!! love it
    genny looks good i think what happened is we expected great not good
    the tracy girl looks forced! even on the runway model it looks nasty! and isnt it to hot in nigeria for all that fabric.
    hate the top design on folu
    dolapo of course nice and classy as in Michelle obama tinz!

    Who is this Folu person?! She is striking, sha. And why is this Jide man carrying a clutch with a feminine stance? Why?

  26. Ima

    October 31, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    They all look lovely. Difficult to stand up against a model in an outfit. The model will be tons slimmer and her body designed or picked to show off best look of the dress.
    all fine women

    The Ayo Van Elmar outfit just totally rocks! Both on the runway and d red carpet model. I have seen a few of her previous designs and I must say she sure is a force to reckon with

    If you understand style, you’ll get it, that the Re Bahia
    outfit is great style. But you guys are so weak and hooked on your
    Nigerian fashion borders where all you do, know and appreciate is
    copying style.
