Kaylah Oniwo - March 2014 - BellaNaija

OAP Kaylah is arguably one of the best dressed personalities. She switches her look at every red carpet, giving us a chance to see her fearless sense of style.

In an interview with Punch’s “The Fashionista”, the media personality shares the major wardrobe malfunctions people make.
“I think the major problem in Nigeria is the quest to outdo one another when it comes to style. We are indeed very stylish whether in our traditional or western attire. This problem is common with women and in the end, you come out looking like you are at the circus.

We tend to overdo things. Another issue is not dressing according to our body type. The moment you are aware of your body type, you will have no issue looking fabulous. Dressing in line with one’s age is yet another and it is often interpreted as being old school or less fashionable.

For example, American actress Sandra Bullock is 49; look at her style in 2013, I think she looks amazing. Her stylist pulls clothes that make her look very classy, yet young and vibrant without revealing too much. Coming back home, the iconic Onyeka Onwenu is another example of someone who dresses appropriately for her age and still looks fabulous.

A lot of older women do not dress according to their ages. No matter how great your figure is, you can show it off and still look way younger. Also, over-accessorising is another error. For the men, it’s the lack of attention to details, the cut of the pants, the fit of the shirts, the shoes. If men pay more attention to fittings, they will come out looking dapper. The men also need to focus on personal hygiene and grooming.”

    Coming from someone who’s hair is a constant mess though, that’s funny.

    But I agree with her. Nigerian women typically overdo everything, especially when it comes to makeup and accessories. They usually have too many things going on. It can be an eyesore. The worse part is that the excessive flamboyance is fast becoming the new normal. Less is more. You don’t need to resemble a color wheel or adorn yourself with accessories everywhere before you look beautiful. It just makes you look ridiculous.

    I’m not sure about her hair being a hot mess o, i know she likes curly hair way too much, that sounds like beef right there, moving on , i have to admit , she is right, so damn right about us trying to out do one another, i used to be like that but i realized i had to take a chill pill and dress responsibly. I love her radio show Catwalk, fun show. keep it up

    Oh wow ! Is this really her ? Wow ! These days we seem to have pretty OAPS. My dear you are so right especially when it comes to the men, I see some men and I’m wonder if they look at the mirror, I’m a man and I pay attention to detail, alter my outfit if I need to so I can come out looking decent . Women need to chill, I was watching the AMVCAS red carpet and wondering what the heck is going on especially their hair

    Co-incidentally I read this article I’m today’s pinch newspaper , she’s spot on with her comments , I recall a 60 year old woman in my church who dresses like she’s in her 20s , it’s appalling !!!! And I think a lady who doesn’t dress according to her body type is Jocelyn Dumas ,well done with your fashion segment I’ve listened in about 3 times . Keep it up

    Wow she’s gorgeous !!!! I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion, I’m of the opinion that Brazilian extensions should be banned if ladies cannot use it in moderation ! I thinks he was clear with her points without being sentimental nor self righteous , we are all guilty of making comments about people style .
