One thing is for sure – Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde could not be missed at the TIME 100 Gala.
The leading Nollywood actress arrived at the Jazz, Lincoln Centre, New York City on Tuesday 29th April 2014, in a one-of-a-kind custom red dress by Iconic Invanity – read it here.
With the help of her stylist Ezinne Chinkata, Omosexy accessorized with drop earrings, and black bracelets.
Nancy Nwadire, the creative director of the Nigerian fashion label tells BN Style all the deets on the frock.
“We wanted something very different for Omotola in terms of colour choice, silhouette and design for the 2014 TIME 100 Gala event.
What came to mind immediately was a modern tailored look. We went for structured shoulders with cut out details and a straight silhouette for a modern edgy twist.
The scarlet red dress was made of Crepe Deschine silk.“
Ezinne also explains that “Nancy ran a white belt/band across the dress to cinch in the waist. An edgy twist was achieved by running a panel from the neckline to the bottom. We added a touch of our signature with minimum black embellishment at the white borders to make a contrast.”
Talk about making a statement on the red carpet.
