      She doesn’t need to wear Vivienne Tam to a Vivienne Tam show for fashion week. She’s wasnt front row at this show, she’s not on that celebrity status where she has to wear the label to the labels showing, lastly there is no rule to dress for a fashion show, celebrities just do it out of common courtesy or based on their relationship with these fashion houses, except with a few exceptions where the show case is very exclusive and it is requested that the attendees dress in a particular fashion e.g Karl Lagerfeld with Chanel

    i prefer the dress shirt. the other one makes her look bulky and it is not flattering at all!

      Are you for real? Do you think you sound intelligent or have made a useful statement? A whole people should leave the way they dress because GEJ lost?

    Tonye I like you, but really you need to look through these pictures and judge for yourself, they aren’t all that really. Prolly the Mai Atafo collection isn’t meant for you, time to try other designers hun. Oh btw, your music is good.
