Mo Abudu’s Oscar de la Renta 50th Birthday Look!



Mo Abudu BM Pro
Mo Abudu was looking all shades of fabulous at her 50th birthday party in Lagos last night. The media mogul wore an Oscar de la Renta dress from the designer’s Fall 2014 Ready To Wear collection.

The embroidered strapless ruffle high-low gown was presented in a coral hue on the runway, however, Mo selected the geranium pink version for her big day. The belle of the ball’s makeup was done by Banke Meshida-Lawal of BM|Pro. Mo’s diamond earrings, ornate gold clutch, elegant updo and the perfect red pout completed her look.

    Gorgeous! Still can’t believe this lady is 50! She can pass for someone in her 30s and her mom who is 74 can pass for someone in her 50s! Great genes.

    She looks really good but would have prefered the dress on a slim frame while she goes for a fitted dress cos she has a fit body

    Does she know how old she is..?! What’s with the breast squeezing?! She should’ve at least held a nice shawl, it wuldve made a whole lotta difference…

    • Ololajulo

      September 14, 2014 at 3:29 pm

      Sigh! Oh that people would shut up if they have nothing good to say, couldn’t you at least have prefaced your comment with congratulations ? Haters hon hate…

      September 14, 2014 at 3:36 pm

      I like the dress, she looks good. But the cleavage is a bit too much. She has a good body though. And the makeup is too much, he other subtle make-up(s), Mo that is, is way better than this. She normally looks better than this.

    • Tolu

      September 14, 2014 at 3:40 pm

      Chill, she doesn’t have to put a shawl, she is allowed to what pleases her.

    • LOL

      September 14, 2014 at 4:12 pm

      abeg, abeg, abeg

      Nas why all this fuss? If Mo wants to show her standing soldiers that is none of your biz wax . At least her soldiers are still standing at 50 , other women as young as 19 already have fallen soldiers… like they have breastfed…. a fort of 50 soldiers… Let Mo be Mo.. ok ?? stop putting pressure of your own opinions on other… Gee.!!! I am sure you don’t have fresh standing soldiers like Mo.

    The dress on its own is very beautiful. MO Abudu is a very beautiful woman. But the combination of the dress and Mo Abudu isnt the best look she can have….because of her body frame, she should have gone for something not this cinderelic ot bogus…a more slimmer look like the the green dress she wore for her tv launch would have been more flattering…..she is one blessed woman no doubt; but she is becoming fairer to me. I thought she use to be dark skinned.


      September 15, 2014 at 8:03 pm

      You do know bogus means fake right?

    I respect women that dream and are not scared to pursue that dream! Mo is an achiever a woman of substance. Happy 50th to her and may the good Lord continue to bless her, Amen. But, I do not like the dress, she is too classy for that!

    YES!!! I said it….. (Dear local nigerians haute couture is not a designer, haute couture is a french word and it means “high sewing”.all u RAZ human beings trying to stunt and behave like they know something, Long hisssss)

      Even on a Sunday you’re being bitter LOL at least the local Nigerians you’re referring to have “arrived” and they’re now stunting on haters like *cough*u*cough* You’re here throwing a kilometer long hiss but you know you’ll never be able to buy anything haute couture lol. not to worry though…Mango pret a porter rhymes perfectly with Bruno :-p

    September 14, 2014 at 5:09 pm

    I simply don’t understand what’s it with Nigerians and bad belle. Critics of the century. Why can’t you just appreciate her. Better still if you have nothing nice to say then keep quiet, it’s either it’s Too much makeup, dress would hv worked better on a slimer psn, bla bla bla. If she had, had it all toned down, you pple still complain, for e.g “She’s looking too flat on her 50th bday” Wonder how many of you can pull of this kinda look @ 50…* I bow for una really!

  13. Koenigin

    September 14, 2014 at 5:29 pm

    Money talks!! Nice dress, suits her well even though I found it to be slightly over the top at first.

    Her mother is a beautiful woman.To live to see your child turn 50 and celebrate in such lavish way is a Blessing with capital B. Very beautiful children she has! I can see that her daughter is rocking her natural hair which is fantastic. Would have been supa dupa embarrassing to have her wear one of thse mami wata lace front wig à la Ruky Sanda.

    Bella Naija commentators can bully people sha after they will be forming “tush” and classy blog and not like others. One person comments or makes her opinion known and people shut her down but let an article be put up for cyber bullying, you see them forming saints and throwing a pity party. Rubbish.

    If this world is free for all and anyone can do anything he/she likes, then we can as well be racists, be naked on the street, or do all the wrong things in this life without anyone telling us what to do. This world will be worse than it is right now. What people will say actually helps some people not to commit some bad crimes. Criticism is good and serves purpose. Even the bible says we should judge one another and watch out for one another. There’s a limit I know but those criticisms help us. And if you have thrown your life out there for everyone to see, be sure that you would get a dish of diverse opinion. Let me hear anyone call this blog classy again or put down another blogger(we all know the other blogger), I go insult that person tire. Classy my foot.

    I hear Mo is divorced. Rather than opinions about her cleavage and her make-up, what interests me is if she would have gone this far as a married woman. Somehow, I doubt it.

  19. Asgrl

    September 14, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    I thought she looked appropriate, successful, sexy, accomplished and like a queen for the day. Congratulations to her.

  20. mssexy

    September 14, 2014 at 8:46 pm

    forget her going this far if she was stl married
    a lot of men cant handle this type of progress in a woman and that her ex-husband i know well wld have slashed her to half ‘like my papa money is enough for us to spend’
    i’m happy for her, she is success story, however she did it i dont want to know – i click a glass for her @ 50

    September 14, 2014 at 9:46 pm

    Strange comments about her marital status, its sad to see Nigerians beginning to adopt the ‘husband or career’ mindset. It is possible to have a happy marriage and career, with children

    • Rosy

      September 15, 2014 at 6:10 pm

      I totally agree with your opinion on this, the rate these celeb disregard marriage is disheartening especially the women. Imagine what it would have been if Mo’s husband had danced with her before her mother did? They are happy to show off kids but cannot stand the rigor of being a wife.

    She could pass for a big sister to her kids, like seriously. #GreatGenes

    BELLA NAIJA: I’ve read comments raving about Nikki Laoye’s “Happy birthday” song, and her rendition of “Ain’t no stopping now” with Chindinma and others. Abeg post links. Thnx

  29. dorodee

    September 15, 2014 at 4:41 am

    Yes, it is possible to have a successful career and a happy marriage. A good example are the Irabors up there. And there are so many others here in Nigeria.


      September 15, 2014 at 8:00 pm

      No one knows what really happens behind closed doors. Only people in a marriage can say if it is a good one or not!

    September 15, 2014 at 10:14 am

    Shes 50, looking beautiful, is successful., and seems happy …I’ll drink to that

    September 15, 2014 at 11:53 am

    @ Oyinlola, what’s sad about reality? You can have a marriage, kids and a career. Many men will let you fly – but only so far. So many Nigerian alpha females in business and politics are unmarried. Its not an accident. I can think of Americans like Sandberg of Facebook whose husband stays with the kids. Even if a naija man was so progressive, his family or society would insult him. Ofcourse there are exceptions to every rule and God bless them but these are the facts.

    Mo looked Gorgeous, I would have preffered the makeup to have been toned down just a little bit, seems the dress and makeup were competing!

  33. Radex Olutimilehin

    September 15, 2014 at 3:08 pm

    The top of her dress is ungraceful I’m not sure her mother is too proud of d dress ! Mo ! 50th is not 21st though Otherwise you are cute and

  34. Modella

    September 15, 2014 at 4:21 pm

    She sure look good @5o..I can imagine her heaving a big sigh of relieve after pulling off the dress! How was it zip up? Luv the makeup!

    September 15, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    Chei this woman really same age as my mama sha. She’s looking wonderful, happy birthday inspiring woman. Many more successful years ahead. And for those of you looking for her husband, please find her one if it hurts you so much that she’s not married. Marriage this, marriage that. One cannot simply congratulate a woman without first checking if she has husband. All her achievements never complete abi cos husband no dey. Continue searching you will find. A grown ass woman chose to get a divorce and forge ahead with her life for whatever reasons best known to her and you’re finding husband. mtchew!

    Congratulations again ma’am and a happy birthday

    The geranium silk faille version of the dress which looks like the one Mo is wearing was actually what was on the fall 2014 runway collection not the coral pink hue. However, I think it is such a wonderful selection for a woman turning 50- Imagine how you’d feel fitting into a dress like this- confident, extravagant and beautiful! I’d like to feel this way on my 50th birthday!
