      I’m sorry but the model rocked the dress waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyy better, Toke is too short and the dress makes her look frumpy, and are people still wearing these knock off valentino shoes. I am enough!! The dress is very pretty but it sits well on a slender and slight taller frame. Its a No from me for Toke. Bonlale looked fine but wrong shoes, I feel the strap heels would have worked better versus the closed stiletto.

    I’m just saying. taking “inspiration” is allowed. lol

    the dress washes toke out completely. toke pls stay away from mustard yellow. With ur bleached skin, I dont think mustard yellow will ever look good on u.

    bolanle didnt accessorise properly. the matching shoes and bag are a huge NO NO. very amatuerish and basic.

    I love Toke but Bolanle slayed this outfit

    Bolanle hands down. The mustard color looks washed out.

    Dark skin??

    August 16, 2015 at 1:18 am

    The both look lovely but I prefer Bolanle’s color choice. The purple dress would have looked nice on Toke as well.

  13. Seriously

    August 16, 2015 at 1:32 am

    Bolanle is a bae. She’s effortlessly beautiful. I didn’t know Toke is albino….smh

    Bolanle is the new slayer
    Bolanle I prefer her slightly less form fitting and color

  15. Mostest

    August 16, 2015 at 1:41 am

    Bolanle please. Toke looks uncomfortable trying to suck in her stomach.

    Bolanle looks gorgeous. The bleached out pale skin does not go well with the mustard dress. Black is beautiful my people, embrace your skin tone.

    August 16, 2015 at 2:08 am

    ✔️Bolanle, because the color is perfect on her skin tone. Toke looks alright too, but looks a little bit uncomfortable. The dress looks tight on her.

    they both rocked it well, i prefer it on the model though. i will go for Bolanle, she has been slaying it recently

    Toke’s outfit made her skin tone look off. Shld’ve looked better in the other lady’s outfit

  20. oluchy

    August 16, 2015 at 3:17 am

    Bolanle is the winner for me because her purple colour.

  21. NaijaPikin

    Hands down bolanle. That color works well for her skin tone.

    Tokes dress color makes her look really pale

    This is reminiscent of Stella McCartney’s ‘Kasey’ dress.

    It looks best on the model, then Bolanle. Toke’s is a bit too snug.

    Is it me or is Toke getting lighter? Hmm double dosing on that lightening pill I see. SMH

    Bolanle wins this hands down! From d color of her dress matching her skin tone to d matching shoe n bag..phew! Hot. Tone, that shoe u r wearing is a no no and the color of d dress doesn’t accentuate ur skin tone.

  26. Temi

    August 16, 2015 at 5:44 am

    Why can’t Toke keep her arms down? It’s always up like hangers

  27. heiress of bloom

    *Toke*…damn auto correct.

    Funny enough, I think if Toke wears the purple and Bolanle wears the mustard, it would be perfect on both of them because of their skin color. Toke is light so the mustard kind of washes her out.

    Bolanle looks amazing.she definitely has a stylist now .i still can’t get over how stunning she looked at dolapo’s wedding.*Thumbs up gal’

    They both look amazing. They have both chosen colours that work very well with their complexion.

  42. Jhummieooz

    August 17, 2015 at 7:04 am

    hmmm, well, considering both dress colours on both skin colours, I would prefer the purple on Toke and the mustard on Bolanle…

  43. Alert!

    August 17, 2015 at 10:19 am

    Bolanle Olakannmi. The whole ensemble is perfect

    An unremarkable dress. Prefer the colour of Bolanle’s though.
