    Wow they wore that dress in 2009. Rihanna killed it except that for that ugly bag. Tube top dress dont need hair dangling around. Hair in ponytail style is best!

    Money really yab man, so you mean they all wore this dress in 2009?And we are here still trynna feel funky with it in 2013. Not like there is anything wrong with comparing clothes. But wearing it and stating it’s brand only shows competition that is void. A friend of mine always says if something passes u by in its prime, its past you by forever o!lol nt bad sha…

    Since 2009? Bella you are disgracing Yvonne and Africa na. Please follow fashion influencers from around the world and see what they are wearing. Follow miroslava, Anna dello russo, Elena perminova, man repeller etc. If foreigners would read your blog this would be a disgrace to us that a celebrity is celebrated for wearing something her peers wore 4 years ago. Am not saying its wrong to wear old season but our so called celebrities should represent us at least from the fashion point of view. Bella please your editors need to do their homework and read how other blogs present fashion. Celebrated fashion icons are forward thinkers.

    Just a constructive critism.

      this is a complete embarrassment. The stylist should be thoroughly ashamed. how can you dress your client is something which is so out of season (5 years!!!) and then compile pics of other celebs wearing the same dress while it was in season and send it round to blogs?? it actually beggars belief. This stylist needs to be detained in fashion jail. Poor Yvonne clearly knows nothing about in season or out of season pieces. she just knows that it is a designer dress so she really cannot be blamed but the supposed stylist should know better.

      I’m not hating o. cos i’m not saying i always dress in season (its too expensive!! and it doesn’t work for the weather we have here in Nigeria!) I leave that to the likes of auntie Nkiru! but I’m not a celeb and I dont put myself out there for embarrassment.

    The one hundred pack of hair on her head is a big no, no, the shoes look cheap. the dress is actually quite cute, but outdated as far as prominent people wearing these styles go. She could have gotten something custom made and unique by her seamstress.

    Few women have no competition – they win always. Rihanna
    happens 2 be one of the few women. I am not referring 2 the ones
    that seek competition out 😉

    Riri has no completion. YN’s legs darker than her body in
    this pic. Too much hair and shoes don’t match. She’s still a fine
    gal tho

    Which day will I see an article critiquing this lady’s performance in one flick or the other?
    I thought she was meant to be an actress?
    If it is not stuff addressing her drama filled love life, it is one attention seeking piece about what she wore and did not wear.

    The same people crucified Bella for saying Yvonne carried a prada saffiano tote with LV pegase luggage. Promoting materialism and so on. Now she is not up to speed with her old dress. Bella, pele.
