Genevieve Nnaji rocks Print Pant Suit at HOAYS Lagos Premiere



Genevieve Nnaji - HOAYS Lagos - April 2014 - BellaNaija

As you are reading this, the highly anticipated Lagos Premiere of Half of a Yellow Sun is taking place at the Silverbird Galleria, Lagos.

The cast and crew as well as the author of the book, are already on the red carpet.

Genevieve Nnaji who stars as Ms. Adebayo in the production was missing at the press conference yesterday but made a stylish arrival at the premiere.

Sporting bangs, Genny is rocking a purple print pant suit by TheJLabel (Jewel by Lisa‘s diffusion line) which she styled with a blue camisole, an artistic print clutch, a gold cocktail ring and blue heels.

Genevieve completes her red carpet look with smokey eyes and nude lipstick.

      Thanks for your fair appraisal of this girl. Please remember that it is senseless to “Carry coal to Enugu” It is also similar to carrying ice to Alaska during winter. “A good wine needs no Bush” and “You don’t decorate a decoration”. I have never seen this girl in real life. I am just a late follower of what is going on in show business in Nigeria from far away Miami Florida. There are lots of good and super pretty actresses in Nigeria according to my American Students here. But, all of them seem to agree that Genevieve is the boss.
      Referring to the picture here, she need not waste her time to put on a suit to show up at my uncles Theatre. Anything she wears speaks volume. She is like some element that sells its value just by its very nature. Think of your days in college! Do you see that the faculty in the hard sciences and mathematics don’t give a hoot about how they look? Yet, on the average, they averagely have higher IQS than people from other faculties?
      Look back at the achievements of Geneviève! Think of her talents dating back to her acts as a child prodigy and lead up to today. Even this outfit speaks volumes. Let us allow her to live her life according to the dictates of her conscience. Besides, she is a young woman at an unusually high pedestal. The higher you are in a field the more the demands on your life. So, how many of us can handle being a young actress and obviously a head of household? She may have lots on her mind with family issues(most females do that) unlike we the men.
      So, please be fair to her and treat her prima-facially. She is a star even in rags.

      You want her to wear a ball dress like the other local actresses? The photos in the other post show that it was not a huge event.
      She looks good & appropriate for the event. Bella Naija should also invest in better cameras & accessories All these photos that are shot in dim/florescent lighting with the iphone 3gs shouldn’t be on your website.

    Love love the Print ensemble but couldn’t overlook the slouchy fit of the blazer. Also if the inner tank top was like off-white, or creamish color it would have made the whole outfit popping. Nonetheless Ms. Nnaji rocked it and the bangs, she owned it!

    Is it me or something is not just right !? The hair? The fit? Too busy? It could be her pose tho but it just looks dull and blah. Don’t stop the fact that she’s still a stunner tho.

    I just want to know where her eyes are? I wonder if she was able to see the film & find her way around the premiere.

      Stop generalizing. I do not find anything spectacular about Lupita’s fashion taste and I see nothing extraordinary about her acting.

    she looked FANTASTIC!!!! very Classy and fashion foward. It doesnt have to hug your body or be a dress a.k.a “gown” to be appropriate.

    the colour is too dark for her skin tone (purple doesn’t always look good on dark skin) it dulls her look and that fringe is not working, fringe never looks good on genevieve because she has a tiny face. she looked much better at the canada premiere with that white outfit. i don’t like this outfit, the styling or hair.

    April 13, 2014 at 6:47 pm

    Please why is she hanging her sun glasses on her camisole? Hell to the NO NO NO. The suit is actually nice but very ill fitting around the waist region. She should have gone with a tank top and then leave the jacket unbuttoned. I don’t like the shoes and purse combo either, nice pieces but altogether does not work at all. Never been a fan of the fringe, imagine if she had a side part with this gorgeous hair and her face did all the talking

    Genevieve is beautiful but this right here e EPIC FAIL especially the hair. Indian/Peruvian long weave/wig is a fashion trend that should be banned. You can’t see her face, the weave is too bloody long. Her outfit is ok but would have looked better with a different hairstyle.

    Genny is not aging at all, she’s got good genes!

    BN please find a way to place your logo on pictures in a way that is not distracting. The Bella Naija logo right on her outfit is not necessary. Maybe the corner of the picture?

    everyone can say what d like she looks good, lovely hair.

    I know say I be bush girl, but dis print suit reminds me of pyjamas. Genny is a babe, and Lisa Folawiyo is a great designer, but this is NOT their best look.
