    http://www.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/IMG_9170.jpg- This gentleman is what happens when you have a convoluted theme for a party. “African Victorian” . People will try their best, and when it is not enough, they throw their hands to the heavens and give up. LOOL. Half the people there did not even bother to dress according to the theme. However, the few people that got it right, did it well. I supposed I understand to a certain degree what she was going for. It would have been fantastic if people put in more of an effort and were creative with their outfits. The photographs would have been beautiful.
    Monalisa’s hair is “bae”! I had edges once. Then I did kinky twists, and my hair dresser convinced me that if she did not braid the edges, the hair would not be fine and I would not look pretty. I wanted to look pretty.

      lol …and then all your edges chopped. Pele, I feel your pain as I have the same problem.

      ?? Getting my braids “did” next weekend after embarking on a 4-month quest to lovingly nurture my ‘fro over the summer… and failing woefully…

      Will keep your sentiments in mind when her picking comb starts to inch towards my edges… ?

      I love the party photos and how all her friends appeared to put some effort into delivering on Its very random theme. Happy birthday, Ezi, may The Lord fill your years with the goodness of life.

      LMAO. My people, the struggle is sooo real. I did not know how creative I could be with hair styling until this happened to me. TLC for the hair until early October.

    Painful pictures to look through…thats what he cppens when we try to be “TUSH” and throw a couple of fancy names..what is ‘AFRICAN AND VICTORIAN” about these guests biko ???? Even the ” celebrity stylist” did not do justice to her own style. See the lady that wore a gladiator heel sandals wiith a thigh high gown..lady plueeze !
    I may not know it all but neeh epic fail for most of the guests

      I second that, all I see is confusion confusion confusion, how does one couple Victorian with African, and by African what does she mean? I swear we Lagosians are on this band wagon -a runaway train to over-create so we dig deeper and deeper wanting to break every norm and push an imagined boundary of western-worlded’ness (yes i coined that) or creativity or should I call it originality.

      It has taken on a life of its own, grown arms and legs and it is running and running… Now we have tea parties (under the scorching tropical sun), garden parties ( on artificial turfs with imported flowers to bring the staging to a perceived reality), we have summer and thanksgiving discounts, autumn/winter collections, we know every trending topic in the USA, watch all their shows and use their linguistic jargons in our mundane interactions, we serve hamburgers and yet turn up our nose to bread and akara kilode! We emulate the west so much that in our zeal to be the ‘trend setter/trailblazer/first-cracker’, we run amok with copy and paste and then end up stifling the very creativity that we crave. The pics above feature looks from pretty much every decade of the 20th century -and the 21st century (confusion), and then those who actually maybe researched the word ‘Victorian’ kind of came off looking awry. I mean did that guy have rain boots on? Did that girl have gladiators on? Naija peeps abeg una, stay una lane o.

    Love the pictures but this was no party at all. Just an “event” with pictures being taken and food being eaten. I’d edit “time to mingle” to “to to dine”.

    By the way, I love that Kelechi and Julia Amadi-Obi look more and more alike as the years go by. LOL! #howsposttobe *wink*

    HBD..looks like fun was had and the Birthday girl was happy so thats great. On the other hand this is a reminder of why I personally don’t do themed party- its not easy to pull off and has to be on point or its a bit Alice in Wonderland-ish and some things just don’t make sense but…I also think Shakara couture would have been great at styling/decor for this kind of theme cos she’s amazing with such detailed period themes – ppl have me wondering if sarong/wrapper was part of the theme? or …never mind they all look like they are having fun and Ezinne looks happy- bless her and her lovely parents supporting!. PS. BKW 🙂 formerly known as BGT you look AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!

    Ceejay Jibunoh looked like he would go riding after the shindig or he just wanted to show off his horse riding boots. I would too if I don’t have regular opportunity to wear them in Obodo Naija.??

  23. A.D.A.

    August 21, 2015 at 8:33 pm

    Victorian for where? Even the decor doesn’t even try, so what’s the point?

    August 22, 2015 at 12:17 pm

    these pics tell me that Ezinne is friends with a lot of married couples, good for her.
    the Azubuikes (havent heard of u guys); you’re the best looking couple, very clean, young look.
    KC obi, i see madam for the first time, now I can let you take my pics, you’ve got a great eye…

    Just catching up on my BN events and my stomach hurts from the comments. Ezinne looks lovely but I’m not sure there was anything about her outfit that anyone would associate with what was happening in Africa in Victorian times. This theme is too silly and forced. Best dressed between Fifemayo and Ezinne. Worst between Mr Alison and Mr Jibuno. Strangest was the Aunty with the gold hat that wanted to win. The last picture of Ezinee with her parents is the most beautiful I have seen her.

    Love that ‘unknown’ relatives and friends were there and that she is real not celeb affair and who is who of nollywood. Apart from the try-hard aunty nobody was close to the theme. Please who wore shorts in victorian times? Next time try a more sensible theme.

    Happy belated birthday!
