    I like the outfits a lot, so many beautiful people however, for a store that sells luxury fashion items its shocking to see that dead carpet and it shows no attention to detail on Polo Avenue’s part!!!

    Jennifer Obayuwana is filthy rich. She has access to all the best designers. So why, oh why, would she keep dressing like this? Im sure her dress can buy my house but the fit is God-awful. And the hair! And the make up! I mean, I cant. Does she know how many people would give anything to have access to the stuff she has access to? Biko, you’re a smart, gifted and RICH businesswoman so dress the bloody part!

    Jennifer Obayuwana is filthy rich. She’s obviously a great businesswoman because what she’s done with Polo is admirable.So why, oh why, does she keep dressing like this? This dress, I’m sure, can buy my house but the fit is just God-awful. And dont even get me started on the hair. Or the make up. I mean, I really can’t. Biko you’re obviously an intelligent, gifted and VERY RICH businesswoman. Please dress the bloody part because you can afford to!
