Asa for ELLE South Africa - BellaNaija - August2015

Bukola Elemide a.k.a Asa is a chic fashionista in ELLE South Africa‘s latest issue exclusive for September 2015.

In the spread she rocks pieces by some of Nigeria’s finest – Lisa Folawiyo and Iconic Invaity by Nancy Nwadire. In one image she is seen in a signature Lisa Folawiyo dress featuring displaced tassels, embellished jewel stones and an ankara top. In subsequent photos we see her in beaded high-waist Iconic Invanity trousers and an embroidered play suit paired with a white turtle neck top. Of course she finished her look with her signature cat eye frame glasses and dark locs.

In an interview by Genevieve Magazine Editor-in-Chief & fashion contributor for ELLE SA, Dimeji Alara she talks to the publication on the first time she wore a dress, her childhood and her journey so far.

Asa’s essence was captured by photographer, TY Bello, with makeup by Bimpe Onakoya and styled by Dimeji.

      I think she is gorgeous. Her face is pretty, she has a lovely shape, a beautiful smile, her talent is phenomenal, and she is making waves in her career; getting better with each album. That right there is my definition of beauty- not just skin deep.

    Come of it. @tina. That is ur opinion. Pls keep it safe in the bank. she is beautiful. Real Beauty is beyond the skin, it lies in the fusion of a person’s character with charisma and talents..and the list is endless. The colour of skin, dimensions of the nose and shape of the eyes comes last on the list. U need a change of perspective.

    Asa is beautiful. If she is not your definition of beautiful, it doesn’t mean she is not beautiful. We all look but see differently.
    Asa darling, keep shining, keep winning.
    There’s something to be said for real talent…

    Ugly? The Asa i’ve seen is BEAUTIFUL!!! Maybe you are just used to seeing heavily made up ladies and thus is your standard for beauty. Love you Asa for doing your own thing and being you. Exceptional lady
