      We know omotola is what you aspire to be an international – good representative of Nigerian modern woman. Is your life better than hers then shut up. Her daughter is an adult, and she still looks very shy, dear better shine brighter than mama, because mama’s outfit wins. To you idiots, you are what you know, bush people that still think so Stone Age in morality.

      Her breasts are not flat. She needed to have worn a better bra. Not feeling both outfits.

      There is absolutely nothing wrong with what her daughter wore and her boobs are certainly not flat. As if some of her age mates dnt wear outfits like that but because they re public figures you pple must bash them! To me the cloth looked decent, nothing was exposing, not even belly button. Its a crop top normal pple her age wear and her stomach is toned for it! You pple jst like like too much talk

    Who ever did this to Omotola or advised her to go out like this should be shot!!!!
    She is way too classy for this sort of trashy dressing. A woman of almost 40 dressing like this is shameful.
    WORST dressed for me! Sorri

    wow good Bellanaija i am not going to be biased but Omotola you are a good actress but dear you fail woefully on the style scene sorry you need a good professional stylist who knows what fashion is and can dress you based on your body shape, you have a banging body you need to accentuate them…………………………………. fashion in Nigeria is taking great shape but a lot of fashion critics need to be birth and bash when needed so people wont leave their homes likes masquerades……….. but i must those fashion critics must be fashion inclined must know the nitty gritty of what fashion is all about not some BY FORCE IN YOUR FACE SOCIAL RED CARPET FREAKS we see these on the red carpet. 2014 Elite Model Look had more fashion elites strutting the red-carpet am sorry this year was a bit disappointing though

    The challenge with the Nigerian Fashion scene is that the so called fashion elite celebrate mediocrity. No one takes criticism lightly. No one likes to hear the truth, when the truth is spoken they label you a hater. Anyway like an earlier commenters stated there were better dressed people present at the event. 1. Omotola was nowhere near fabulous, her apparel would have been best suited for a younger and different body type. Was wrong for her to compete with Meriah on who show belle pass. Meriah kwa I don’t understand the crop top and her boobs not seating well. 2. Ifeanyi Nwunne, no comments? 3. One leg in one leg out, one word Trashy. umuagbara. 4. Idia Aisen, okay nothing fantastic. For me on celebrity winners list Dakore, Temi Dollface, Dolapo Oni, Bolanle, a few others. I rest my case

    Wow!..Omototala looking bold and beautiful, Love it.

    Honestly, I’m disappointed in Omotola hence she is one of the very few, if not only married Nigerian actress who is highly respected because she balances acting and marriage with discipline and decency. To think that she stepped out with her daughter like this makes me cringe!!!!!!

    Everyone seems to have taken the job special adviser today. People with LOGS trying to remove specs from others. Wow just wow. Omotola and her daughter look lovely if you don’t like don’t dress that way neither should you dress your child that way, but don’t come here dropping criticism on someone else. their father and husband isn’t complaining. May God help us all.

    All this name calling- Married woman no married woman, young girl no young girl, flat boobs no flat bo…. eishhh! The point is, does the dress fit? Yes or no? style is relative. Let us not choke people with our expectations of them. If you don’t see style from their point of view- Jump and pass. Omotola looks good, though I’d rather have the blouse a little longer. If not, she looks fine. Merriah is a kid. Go to shoprite and see what her mates are wearing. I love her outfit. But she needs a better bra. Ifeanyi kills it always!!

    You can see the kind of example Omotola is setting for her daughter, na waa oh. But I must say that omotola does not need to dress like this to get attention nah, she is a superstar so why dress like a DESPERADO looking for cheap attention. Even toke sef done pass this kain level of dressing. Honestly I am dissappointed…

    Choking people or not, what her mates wore or not. They have turned public figure and want us to notice them. That is what is happening we have noticed them. Because a dress looks nice does not mean it would fit. So the point is wear what is appropriate. Meriah’s outfit is cool but the packaging of the Breast should have been detailed shikena. All this praising of her mama showing belle is out of style. Wether style is relative or not does not make rubbish style right. In the international community celebs also get it wrong, and it’s from fans criticizing or style experts dishing style tips that makes celebs sit up. These so called celebs are public figures, selling their brand. Omotola for instance has sold her personal brand to showcase class and style, so if a stylist does not understand your brand personality and gives you a contrary outfit, there should be a big NO. Styling to cause controversy is not good PR. Fashion styling should be all kinds of positive.

    I (n0t Meraiah) would have preferred another crop top,but since am not her…
    “my daughters cannot wear a crop top”my daughters that” at the end of the day your daughters and the ones on crop top are not VIRGINS
    This hypocrisy, where is it leading Nigerians

    love what Omotola is wearing. She looks good; her daughter however,is a bit ‘boobilicious’ so she should have worn a bra, her top didn’t fit cos I can see some space underneath and definitely the wrong shoes for the outfit. I think matching separates in the same look with simple 2 strap heels would have made her look more stylish while still looking trendy too.

    I think the vest worked on the sheer shirt but he should have worn a different type of hat not pharrell’s type- too attention grabbing what with the vest on and all and finally, that red dress is really nice, you’ve got to have a good body and a good dose of confidence to step out in that, simple as it may look.

    Everybody has their bad day in dressing up. i guess this is just a bad day 4 Omotola…one of me favourite Niger babe…d daughter didn’t kill d look as well. I guess I’m used 2 seein Omo in sexier n classy outfits. i guess it would have worked better for others not 4 my Omo
