Toke Makinwa is a Vintage Beauty for “The Celebrity Shoot” 2nd Edition!



Toke Makinwa for the Celebrity Shoot 2nd Edition - Bellanaija - September2014002

It’s Tokstarr with a double ‘r’!

TV Personality Toke Makinwa looks so beautiful and glam for the 2nd edition of design label Abbyke Domina‘s “The Celebrity Shoot“. The debut edition featured Beverly Osu of BBA and now Toke is taking a vintage approach for the feature.

The shoot is dedicated to celebrating successful African women and modern Africa clothes.

In her brief interview, Toke speaks on what fashion is to her, fashion icons and more.

On Fashion
Fashion is an expression of who we are, what we feel on the inside and how we love to be seen. It is very interesting how without speaking, your fashion sense can send out all sorts of messages. I also think it is a reflection of how you feel inside. That been said, I believe that there are no set rules to fashion, everyone needs to find out what works for them.

On “who is an African woman?” and her fashion icons home and abroad
An African woman represents beauty, confidence, strength and so much more. I have quite a number of fashion Icons too. I think the young generation of fashionistas keep pushing the envelope and I definitely love seeing Victoria Beckham, Rihanna, The Kardashians, Blake Lively, Leighton Meeser etc. Back home, I love Eku Edewor‘s style, Zed Eye, Lisa Folawiyo etc.

    Stunning shoot…terrible lace wig, Makeup and hair should have at least made sure the lace blended in with her scalp and wasn’t so obvious!

    …who was responsible for that wig…? Oya, own up! She looks so hot but who ever put that wig on her head needs a good talking to.

    I don’t know what is vintage about this shoot really. That’s the importance of getting a good stylist . Nice photos still

    Tbh I don’t see anything vintage about this shoot, that stylist needs to go back to his or her drawing book and understand his/her craft,and the feathers was a feeble attempt.

    I can’t get over how badly the closure on her weave is installed. Once you see it, you can’t unseen it. So distracting

    This is the only picture I have seen of Toke where her makeup is on point. Absolutely lovely. As for the weave, haba you no try at all. Nonetheless, Toke looks gorgeous here
