    Gbemi is bae!!!! This is the best she has ever looked! So gorge,,,,Best dressed from the makeup to the hair accessories everything. Gbemi please whoever styled you for the event please keep the person. Black is slimming, accentuates your curves and the accessorizing is on point.

    Gbemi hands down best dressed,simple and minimalistic. Dolapo Oni has that new bride glow, love the aquamarine and the embellishments, i gave her second best dressed,err this Zina Anumudu ugly oh, thank God for money. Toke (yawns) boring!!!, looks like either an APrilbyKunbi dress or tojufoyeh. I am done seeing the boring similar design styles they have. Michelle dede this Adriana Papel signature (everybody owns) dress, so unflattering jeez. Mercy coolfm please this is not a picnic dress appropriately. kemi Adetiba very nice look. Who is the gorgeous chocolate Chin Okeke serving class (love the playful green socks). I love Collete Otusheso black look. Everyone kinda tried expected better from Toke (Mrs MTN)

      I actually thought Zina looked very good and I wondered why the mum won’t allow herself age gracefully cos the daughter looks quite good. Yes, Zina is not a conventional beauty but she is beautiful nonetheless.

    Dolapo is so beautiful. Love her simplicity.
    Toke please relax with your stiff poses.
    Andrea, that dress is about 4 seasons ago and for teenage girls but you look good
    Gbemi, this is the best I’ve seen you look.

    The men did it for me this time around! Those navy suits are everything

    toke tries to damn much and always looks razz, and this hair is too much for her. dolapo’s outfit is amazing.

    My best dressed is Dolapo, she nailed it. Toke looks like a drag queen, what is that she has on, from make up to dress 🙁 ?

    Nike oshinowo looks good, Gbemi, i give it to you this time, you got it all right, from hair to toe. Dolapo, amazing, Kemi Adetiba amazing. the men tried even though am not feeling much of Mai Atafo, Mercy Ajife, you have never impressed me on any event.

  13. Sylvia

    The best dressed for me is Gbemi, followed by Michelle, then Dolapo. I don’t care for how the others look.

    G.B.E.M.I.O.O…….. #THATS ALLL!!! That look is the live translation of ‘…all things working together for good…”

    I’m a little bit confused. Dolapo’s dress is by otumemime or so and I saw this exact same dress on jbecks bridals on Instagram. Does jbecks retail Otumemime???

    The same way people put very terrible pictures on Facebook everyone says beautiful that’s the same way bellanaija likes only beautiful comments. Ladies love yourself enough to kern from Ruth Osimes current skin tone

    Who is this Chin Okeke? Refreshing to see a new and really classy face on the red carpet for a change. Best dressed male goes to him hands down! He looks so classy. Meanwhile, GbemiO and Colette get best dressed female hands down. I love Kemi Adeyiba die, d girl no dey ever disappoint for my mind she no get rival. Michelle Dede looks gorg as well. If the red carpet is anything to go by, then it must have been a very classy event.

    Toke, you need to stop your stiff poses 🙁
    It has to stop!

    Kemi Adetiba is just in a class of her own.I love that she always looks effortlessly and appropriately dressed for the occasion. Herself and Chin Okeke make such a good looking pair in this picture. Uncle Mai Atafo. Pls its enough. Rest this tired style. It haff do. Bless Dolapo. She has that unmistakable newlywed glow. Noble Igwe has done well for himself and has come along way. Well done dude! Gbemi looks very good. For the first time in a while, Toke’s style didn’t do it for me. I dunno if it’s the hair or the velvetina sparkly something dress or both.

    Everyone looks great in my opinion. My favourite look however is Michelle Dede’s , she looks gorgeous in that dress. xx
