Ini Edo Shuts Down #AMVCA2016 Dress Critics – “Keep your senseless unsolicited opinions to yourself”



Ini Edo at AMVCA 2016_1Ini Edo has a few words for critics of her AMVCA 2016 dress.

Fans expressed mixed feelings about the long sleeve v-neck white gown, with a long train and low V-back. We saw it in person and on TV and it looked fabulous – but perhaps it didn’t photograph so well. It made our Best Dressed List anyway – click here to see all our top picks of the night!

Here’s what Ini had to say –

Now this beautiful work of art was designed n made by one man which Is what I call excellence in craftsmanship that lots of people can not boast of being successful at any form of craftsmanship or talent yet they are quick to judge n insult people who invest their time into productive creativity…

keep your senseless unsolicited opinions to your self comment on ur pages and stay clear of my page if all u have to say is discredit other people’s hardwork. It’s only an ugly mind that would call this ugly. Enough said. @jbliving designer of life.”

    Ok… But it still looks like a wedding dress. All that is missing is your veil and bouquet.

      Ini has a terrible taste when it comes to fashion. The ugly dresses always wow her. If she mistakenly has a cute dress on, then her footwear wld be off! She needs to hire a stylist! The did justice to this her 1860 vintage wedding gown though, only that her chief bridesmaid took the day off

      I saw a comment by a so called fan saying Ini should go and marry. Even If you don’t like the dress such comments are uncalled for . People should remember that Celebs are human too. Stop th Cyber bullying, its just a frigging dress afterall.

      Eeyah. Ini, I feel you. But you need to save this dress. When HE finds you, all you’ll need are a bouquet and a wig. ?

      One need not to look further to see how some women attack other women and pull them down. Putting off someone else light will not make yours shine brighter. If you don’t like the cloth, just lock up and move on. There is absolutely no need to make fun of her.

    March 6, 2016 at 11:44 pm

    Hehehe GeeGee, like you don’t even know where to begin to respond. If it were a form fitting , well made wedding gown with quality fabric, then the main thing people would complain about is the fact that it was bridal, but it’s all kinds of wrong i’m sorry, just wrong.

    • jide

      March 7, 2016 at 2:47 am

      Ini plix, pick your clap back wisely. That dress was wrong on too many levels. Haha. The red carpet slayed you and your sister act 5 gown. You looked a hot mess.

  3. goldfinch

    March 6, 2016 at 11:45 pm

    Dear Ini, I think you missed the point. Your fans think that the colour of your dress is extremely inappropriate for the event. No one is undermining the designer’s effort or craftsmanship. Personally, I think it’s a beautiful wedding gown but not a red carpet dress. Truth be told, you did look like a #RunawayBride. Here is my suggestion, I think it will be nice for you to give or loan this dress to one of your bride-to-be fans. Trust me, the gesture will be highly appreciated.

      More like Bride of Chucky. Now she has drawn attention to herself, as I hadn’t even noticed her until now. If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. While I don’t support unwarranted personal attacks on celebs, it does come with the territory.

    • Nancy

      March 7, 2016 at 9:44 am

      hahahahahehehehe!!!!!! you are so right – she looks like Chucky’s Bride. The dress looks heavy and its really ugly.

      March 7, 2016 at 2:29 pm

      Yes it sure comes with the territory and she’s gotta endure the heat.

      I don’t even see how calling out an ugly dress constitutes a personal attack tbh.

      Ini please go and change.
      Your dresses gives me concern always. You had started trying and suddenly this!!!
      Madam always ask questions on dress choice. This was a proper proper wedding dress. White with exact wedding details?

      Its always best to be simple. The simpler the better.

    It’s official! Bella you are just an ass-kissing suck-up. No one said the dress was ugly. It looks like a wedding dress and just wasn’t appropriate for the occasion. That’s the problem with nigerian “celebs” , won ki n fe gbo oto oro.

    • goldfinch

      March 7, 2016 at 12:15 am

      as in eh…….BN’s ass-kissing no be for here at all. It’s like they always want to be in celebs’ good books. BN it can’t always work that way o. That your best dressed list is so bogus. You need to know when to be cut-throat or diplomatic (in other words kiss ass). For the sake of your integrity, your fawning tactic doesn’t work in this case……..sorry.

    JBliving is a designer of life. Omo,that guy is too much. If i have to make a bridal wear,then i hope i can get him to do the job.
    The issue is that the dress is too bridal for the event and you didn’t really pull it off.
    Anyway,it’s your life!

    • Oga oh

      March 7, 2016 at 1:04 am

      My own is not even the dress, its the make up it was awful. And for the record; ini u often struggle with outfits this is not the first. In fact its only from around late last year that you upped your game. even for baic everyday outfits. haba you have the name, fame and money get a better glam team period!
      even Rukky has improved at least for last night , look at Annie Ididibia, she never responded to anyone but has improved so much all round , make up , dress and her hair.
      Take a cue from them all, even damilola attoh nailed it !

    • ma'ma

      March 7, 2016 at 11:30 pm

      You are so right, I have never liked her outfit,one of her major problem is that she dose not have good figure to throw the style out. She needs a good designer to study her. Figure, in too bad

  6. nene

    March 6, 2016 at 11:52 pm

    lmao bush girl. u wore a wedding gown to a movie award. get a stylist biko. the dress is lovely but not appropriate for the event, maybe you should’ve removed the excess material at the back, and just made it simple.

    Even d make up is terrible.

    March 7, 2016 at 12:12 am

    I’m sure ini’s intention was to look immaculate in white just like rukky sanda and mercy aigbe but the problem is dt it was overdone. Osas wore a bridal wear but she change the colour and slayed in it. It is really painful wen someone spends time and money on a dress and people just trash it so I understand how she feels but she is not the only one who is been bashed. Even the untouchable queen genny was dethroned and bashed for looking too simple and basic but she will never reply cos she understands pains and gains of being a celeb. Ini edo should never have replied cos now pple will know that their opinion is really her cup of tea . Sweetheart you signed up for this life as a celeb so you just have to learn to deal with it. Kpele ehn……

    Abeg ini edo u no try! It could have been any oda colour but not white! Inshort everything abt ur look was just way out of it.

    Dear Ini sure it’s good idea from a creative mind it’s still a wedding gown, even if the gown had come in black it would still be a wedding gown, no vess !just do it right next time.

  24. Anne

    March 7, 2016 at 2:37 am

    Sorry, Ini’s comment and Bellanaija’s best dressed fake list still wont change the fact that this outfit is a major flop. Ini please ugrade your style. We have wonderful designers in Nigeria, you have the money. Please what is your excuse?????

  25. Rosie

    March 7, 2016 at 2:37 am

    Y the harsh words? Correct with love, Pls don’t make her feel bad. Nice dress Ini but it should have been in another colour cos with this colour it looks more like a bridal wear… And ur make up, a lil bit harsh. U look great though. Thump’s up.

    my message to all the RAZZ money miss road NIGERIAN so called celebs (and its always the same kind). Learn from Classy folks like Beyonce and Kim Kardashian who are ten times more beautiful than you (richer than You) as someone mentioned ont his blog a while ago, but always know never to respond to every critique.. Matter of fact they dont ever respond,

    it is not necessary. You dont have to be defensive on everything and fight back. Learn from the pros

    Ok! I read through all comments and there wasn’t even a single positive comment…was it that bad. As I know people have different taste so I just feel there should b someone who should b digging this look buh not a single one so far so amma just break the status quo…Ini you are a star, shine on like a diamond…and the dress actually looks better to me now. Maybe it’s because of the hate and the pain I sense in her clap back message but I’m really not throwing shades here. The gown seem ok even for the occasion. My point is that it wasn’t that bad. Even tho it didn’t make the best , it is definitely not the worse. Can’t say same for the make -up tho.

    PS. I’m cool like that…..lok

    Ini,Ini everything about your outfit is cheap. it looks like it was rented,because it is not your size at all. The material looks really cheap. Complete “cheapskate”. Now that you are a special adviser in your state, at least you should be able to afford a stylist so get one okay….. You have always been self styled and you obviously have no taste at all. You have always been a very bad dresser even in your movies……………….get a life by getting a stylist.

    Criticism is good, depends on how you take it.
    This dress is a BIG NO. the back view is even the worse looks like one ngbeke or obioma thing. She said someone creates it, someone can spend and entire year creating rubbish and you don’t expect people to applaud you for wearing or patronizing that.
    Ini, you look like a very local calabar girl to me, you’re just fortunate so SHUT UP and pour some petrol on that dress and burn the gaddam thing

    • HUH.

      March 7, 2016 at 4:37 pm

      Are you serious? what has the dress got to do with your personal opinion of Ini as a person? You said “criticism is good,depends on how you take it”. I will add that there is bullying masked as criticism and there is also constructive criticism which is better.

    How can anyone call this dress flawless? Please stop defending these mediocre looks jo. No one is jobless. This is the premise of FASHION POLICE. Only in Nigeria will a celebrity be ranting on social media that they called her dress ugly. Go and cry to your friends and hire a better stylist. It’s not just to look like a hot mess and show up on the red carpet. As a star, you must look like a star. If you want to look like a hot mess, then accept it and stop yelling when people tell you.

    Your job is acting. You are not a fashion guru. Hire a stylist who is to help shape your public image via your style. Audrey Hepburn was known for her impeccable style and this came from her close ties to Hubert Givenchy. He made her look so good for Breakfast at Tiffany’s that she wrote into her contracts that everything she wore had to be designed by him. It’s part of the package. So when we tell you that your dress is ugly, go and hire a proper stylist who can help you.

    Sans the lashes, your makeup and hair are flawless. Dress is ugly. Next time, do better.
