We love to celebrate great talent and and once we saw pictures from this shoot we knew we had to share it with out BellaNaijarians.

Everything about it is so regal, from the beautiful jewellery, makeshift crowns, and the stunning model. We reached out to the photographer Oye Diran of Arista Imagery and he told us,

The theme of this shoot is ‘Black Monarch‘. To convey and embrace the beauty, strength and resilience of the Female African descent which resonates through the queen image that she is. Styling and directing was inspired by royal Fashion from the Aztec Empire, Ancient Egypt, Asia and more.”
