For the Genevieve Magazine Pink Ball she stood out in a purple dress. The dress had a key hole detail and we love the dramatic detail on the back of her dress. Her dress was accessorized with purple earrings, silver rings and a silver watch.

Mo’Cheddah went with a playful and pretty look for the Genevieve Magazine Pink Ball. Her dress was created also by House of Nwocha. Being one of the few people who actually went with a short dress, we love that she added an extra edge to her look with a lace cape.

had a simple look for the Genevieve Magazine Pink Ball but it is still a dress worthy of note with the scalloped neckline detail and the white lace on pink element.

She accessorized this dress designed by Lanre Da Silva Ajayi with purple Victoria Randolf clutch and shoes and chandelier earrings.

Fade Ogunro

IMG_8437Even though a lot of people are skeptical about Fade Ogunro’s look, her risk-taking plunging-neckline sheer overlay dress has a certain appeal to us.

The dress, designed by TrishO Couture, is one of Fade’s riskier looks and we like the fact that she was able to step on the red carpet with a difference. She accessorized her dress simply with a dark brown clutch and completed her look with a pink pout.

Ajibola Ajimobi

IMG_0398In a custom look by Lanre Da Silva Ajayi, Ajibola Ajimobi looked every inch a sweetheart in this ‘prom-my’ piece.

Ene Maya Lawani

BN Best Dressed Genevieve Pink Ball 2014 October2014-BellaNaija016Ene Maya Lawani brought her A-game to the Pink Ball. Even though this is a familiar look, it looks refreshing in the way it was styled.

The former beauty queen accentuated her waist with a gold metal-plate belt and accessorized the plunging neckline dress by design label C Morgan with gold chain link earrings and a gold clutch.

Veronica Ebie-Odeka

IMG_8215It’s not every day we get to see Nigerian women flaunting their pregnancy style so we were glad to see celebrity stylist Veronica Ebie-Odeka step out at the Genevieve Magazine Pink Ball with her baby bump.

A cute pink clutch was the accessory for her pink dress by Chiara Boni. She completed her look with dark smoky eyes, a neutral lipstick and wavy locks.

Teni Sagoe

IMG_8571Defying the conventional ball gown outfit for the Pink Ball, Teni Sagoe went with a modern and hip look from her design label Clan. She wore an Aubrey Hepburn-inspired peplum dress with a simple and clean cut.

Elma Godwin

IMG_0052IMG_0053TV host for Spice TV, Elma Godwin, won our hearts with the interesting floral detail at the hem of her dress. Her signature blonde streak in her hair kept her look interesting for the red carpet.

Eku Edewor

IMG_8420Eku Edewor tried a new look on the red carpet that many are not sure of but we see the look she was going for with a white crop top and a ball skirt by design label April by Kunbi. She accessorized with pearls, a black bag and black criss cross sandals.

IMG_0305Eku’s look was definitely another risky look for the night.

Valerie Obaze

She accessorized this dress with a simple pink and orange clutch.

Oyinda Adenuga

IMG_8767Oyinda Adenuga makes our BN Best Dressed List with this creation from design label Shakara Couture.

The look is somewhat busy with white floral cut-out patterns and a sheer shoulder detail so the rest of her outfit is minimal with pink lipstick and a gold clutch.

Chinyere Adogu

IMG_8807The 2014 MBGN Tourism went for a svelte look in a pajamas-inspired suit by design label Wana Sambo’s Resort 2014 collection.

She kept the rest of her look simple with a pair of square-shared drop earrings and a silver bracelet.

**Bonus – Best Dressed Couple

Julius & Ibiere Agwu

BN Best Dressed Genevieve Pink Ball 2014 October2014-BellaNaija025Just as a bonus, we are adding our best dressed couple to the list because we love how good Julius Agwu looked with his wife, Ibiere Agwu.

Their looks complement each other with Julius taking the lead in a white blazer, pink shirt and tan trousers. Ibiere kept her look understated but stylish in a bejeweled Virgos Lounge dress and a pair of Christian Louboutin Annees Folles pumps.
