      I did not hear any of them complain so she catered to them properly. What does that say about their personal taste?

    wicked girl.

    see the fine elegant black dress she picked for herself.

    women are very vindictive, why?

    this is why I can never advice women to allow a female stylist to style them. female stylists will never dress you well.

    ladies, pls if u are going to hire a stylist make sure the stylist is a man and make sure he is gay.
    a gay guy can never give u an ugly dress to wear.

    gay guys have superior taste when it comes to fashion, architecture, music, art etc. gay guys have the best taste in everything. they know how to dress a woman’s body, they understand a woman’s body and they know how to celebrate a woman’s curves.

      Oponu ni iwo bobo yi sha, so you couldn’t just leave it at male stylist, it had to be a gay man stylist? Last time I checked, they haven’t passed a bill that supports Gay community in Naija, and no, I have nothing against Gay ppl.

      …and look at the beauty she made out of the “cheapest fabrics in balogun market”. Yeye you!

      So you can actually make nice clothes and you weren’t afraid to put your name on those three ratchet contraptions? Toyin Lawani make you fear God small, you hear?

    I think it also depends on the BRIEF the clients in question gave her. Some could have said, make me FABULOUS, UNIQUE, OOTW and that MIGHT be exactly what she delivered.


    March 9, 2015 at 9:57 pm

    But she did not force any of them to wear the COSTUMES na?

    This is way better than the previous controversial designs she made ! BNERS you people’s comment can cause HBP 😀

    The Clients were satisfied with what she designed for dem,if they weren’t satisfied,they would have least the clothes were delivered to dem earlier enough to make amendments

    See human beings and wickedness. So what would happen if she dressed her clients like this? And for the love of Christ almighty can those saying “oh, maybe her clients requested these looks” please just stop already?!! Your client comes in and requests for a particular look. As a discerning stylist, it is your damn job to tell your client if they look horrible in what they choose and convince them to chose something else or tweak the outfit so it looks better. Some of it might be the clients’ fault but I am putting at least 70% of the blame on Toyin. As a stylist and consultant she failed because she didn’t do her job by pointing out the obvious flaws. As a designer, she failed even more for obviously not taking into consideration the fit, the execution, how it would look on the carpet, etc. And as for “well, what if she told them and they ignored her”, I sincerely doubt it. Judging by her fallout with Tonto Dikeh, I am quite sure that if she said it and they didn’t mind her, she probably would’ve put out a statement or something considering the backlash.

      Toyin is ALWAYS right! That’s her major issue, I too know attitude and never taking corrections. And she wants to do everything at thesame time. Trader of all but master of non.

    i think everyone one should look at this objectively, Toyin is a stylist and a designer, if your client comes up to you with this dream of looking a certain way and standing out; you as a designer is there to guide them and suggest options; and if they say yes then they will go with it. All she did was to try to fulfill their needs and they tried out the dresses and felt beautiful in it. I don’t think any designer can force me to wear anything i don’t love or i’m not satisfied with. Fashion is all about taking risks, not every body will love it and it really doesn’t matter becuz i think everyone’s fashion sense is different. I know a lot of you commenters will keep yapping nigerian celebrities and telling them to watch the oscars or grammys and see how it’s done. In those so called celebs that make the worst dressed list, they never blame the stylists because at the end of the day it’s the celebrity that makes the choice out of the options presented to her good,bad or ugly. so stop insulting Toyin, she is a human being after all and those celebrities believed in her ability/talent ; becuz everyone knows Toyin’s aesthetics is unconventional clothing…

      But she wore a conventional cloth herself? I feel she bought the dress she wore sef, cos she hardly wears stuffs designed by “tiannahstyling”.

    We all have tailors and tell them what we want most of the time except on some cases where we cant decide for ourselves. They made a choice and she delivered! So whats wrong with that?

    Seriously? you guys have got to be kidding me… I can’t believe we still on this matter. Most times I wonder if we put in the amount of time we put in analyzing people’s lives and affairs into bettering our own lives.
    AMVCA have come and gone, these people we’re busy talking about have moved on and thinking of how to make another dollar and probably thinking of the next controversial dress they’ll put on to the next award show and we are here wasting our valuable time on what is not our business,
    Yes! they are celebrities but they are humans too and are bound to make mistakes. But then again have we stopped to think… “what if it wasn’t a mistake? what if its what they really wanted?” They tried the dress on, loved it and decided to rock it. I believe no one pointed a gun at them threatening to shoot if they refused to put it on.
    So people can we please drop this already and move on with our lives? plssss

    I Remember commenting on her work on Instagram and she deleted me. This girl needs to attend a fashion school and understand the dynamics of fashion . It’s not all dresses that are designed for the run way dat can be worn on the red carpet. She should learn from Kathy Anthony, style temple and Nhn couture. The babe is just pathetic

    • ms.b

      March 11, 2015 at 2:38 pm

      She deletes ppl alot.if u criticise her on anything, she deletes u. How can she learn when she feels she’s above correction.

    they wanted to mk a statement, she only helped them actualise their dreams.
    abi v u ever seen anyone who went to babalawo asking for one thing and d baba refuses? despite knowing dt will v a heavy price to pay

    Toyin has become popular thanks to her unsuspecting clients and all commenters. I didn’t know about her until BN posted “most controversial looks”. I think she has achieved her aim.
