Her stylist Bubu Ogisi picked this green dress straight off the runway and draped it on Eku’s model figure. She styled the dress with gold drop earrings, a gold necklace, a gold cuff, a gold wrist watch and black ankle strap heels.

She completed the look with wavy locks and pink lipstick

Where: Africa Magic at 10/Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards 2014 Nominees Announcement on Thursday 5th December 2013 at Landmark Village, Victoria Island, Lagos

How She Wore It: Dakore Akande who is expecting her second child, was glowing at the Africa Magic at 10 Anniversary/AMVCA 2014 Nominees Announcement event, in a navy version of the dress.

The Nollywood movie star’s stylist Zara Okpara helped accessorize with gold drop earrings, a silver bracelet, a black Zashadu clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

But Dakore’s most coveted accessories were her growing baby bump and her hubby Lou Akande, who looked dashing in a black suit.

    Lol @ madman. The dress makes Eku look a bit frumpy (never thought that was possible).
    Dakore looks beautiful in it
    The model rocked it best!

    Lou Akande? Really? Since when did Olumide suddenly become Lou. That sounds so Asian.

      The dress looks and is very lovely. Bought one just recently and was taught how to wear it well. Eku tied it too high and i think Dakore looks great considering her baby bump. Its a pretty nice and simple dress.

    Both ladies look beautiful and don’t forget one of the ladies is pregnant and still pulled it off.

    This is one of the few times where I do not like what Eku is wearing. The colour, and style does nothing for her. The dress looks 100% better on Dakore.

    I think both ladies look lovely but prefer it on the pregnant Dakora.

    Prefer it on Eku hand down,the colour and the neck piece did justice to the dress..It look good on the model too,because it sit better on her tummy!

    I voted for Eku, just because I prefer the length of her dress.

    The dress is o-k, not great, but Ejiro AT is doing great things in general sha, with wearable sellable styles. She’s going to do greeaaattt.
    I like how it adds fullness to Eku, and the colour looks lovely on her makes her shine. I hate the stupid hair, it’s like the thing those beach babes might have done on Baywatch back in the day, or like the so-called female detectives on Dempsey and Makepeace in the eighties, or Farah Fawcett, or … just this far in the past, overly feminine, heavy look. I also do not like the smile. It’s very timid.
    Sorry to analyze a living breathing lovely human being like that but you’re on this site and I’m bored. I love you girl and the fashion risks you take, you take the whole thing really seriously lol but that’s your profession so hey, great job.

    As for the other person, Dakore, more than I like the dress on her, I like the her. Looks like a nice relaxed body in a dress. Very “every woman.”
    On the Dakore Akande thing, I don’t know her work but I recall reading somewhere that she is or was an actress or so. I do think chics should stop throwing away their own name in the name of marriage, especially when they already have an identity, like they’re grown up, or up to something, before they marry. It’s really childish (to me.) Like I read somewhere, “I’m getting married, not adopted.” And even if you were getting adopted. Or just be Dakore.
    And the blog people need to stop changing people’s names for them.
