To celebrate Genevieve Nnaji’s 37th birthday, BN Style takes a retrospective look at some of the superstar’s biggest red carpet moments in recent years.

From her widely talked about white long-sleeved dress with the plunging neckline she wore at the inaugural AMVCAs to the little green dress she wore to Naomi Campbell’s charity gala in 2011 to the stunning mustard floor length custom made Elvira Jude dress she wore to the 2015 AMVCAs, it’s no doubt that Genevieve’s iconic style has become a reference point in the Nigerian show business reason why we couldn’t think of a better stylish way to celebrate her.

Enjoy the sweetning joy of revisiting some of her most memorable style momets below.

Happy birthday Genny!!

      How is Genevieve only 37 and I am 30 and I started watching her when I was 17 or younger ?

    • Miss

      May 3, 2016 at 9:25 am

      Perhaps, you aged too fast!!!

    • Leah

      May 3, 2016 at 9:40 am


      You people with your age police behavior. She is 37! She started acting really young!

      Don’t blame her for achieving greatness earlier than your limited vision allowed you to.

    Happy birthday sweet one. You are my #1 ….

  3. Choc!

    May 3, 2016 at 1:14 am

    One celebrity that her make up enhances her beauty not plastering another image on her face…. She’s indeed aging with grace, my all time favourite. One of the very few people (because i can’t refer to them as celebrities) that deserves to be referred to as a Celebrity. Happy Birthday Jenny!!!!!

    OMG!!!!! I have to type this comment by this time not minding how drowsy I am cos I was about to sleep wen I saw this post. Genny dear, my idol in all ramification, beauty, style, poise, etc..You are indeed a rare gem and I will never stop singing ur praise cos u are truly an icon. You will conquer the world one day and I will be here to cheer you on. HBD QUEEN GENNY, The undisputed QUEEN of Nollywood!!!!!!!!

    Just finished watching her on half of a yellow sun, she exudes class. Private life stays private, no need to sell it as a reality media show. How I wish others could take a leaf from her book and show some dignity. But then again Genevieve is able to make a profit from her talent alone, some other so called celebrities got to put the private lives of their entire family on show too just to pay bills. Not mentioning names. Happy birthday lady.

    May 3, 2016 at 2:53 am

    So you mean to tell me all this time she’s only 7 years older than me? I don’t know what I’ve done with my life.

    Make profit from her talent alone? Even as a commenter you should try and fact check. Happy birthday Genevieve

    @Linda,after the disappointment of giving birth early,she was able to trace back herself,that helped in part,no body like to sell there stories,but often things happen.Adults have the right to either talk or not.We know some of there stories too,so no holier than thou please.

    I’m here to read comments from the age doubters association. Some bitter person will come now and say she’s 57, like they always do. Happy birthday Genevieve darling.

    • Positivity rocks

      May 3, 2016 at 4:31 pm

      Why are you here to read that? Why not come to read positive comments from others who admire her as you do? Anyway, I hope that you’re not disappointed that most of the comments have been positive and very few have been about her age.

    There are numerous reasons why I adore this woman. The only TV personality whose story I can relate to on all levels.. The one person whose eyes I stare into in a pic and see a touchy story and tear up. One of God’s blessings in my life that I count twice in thanksgiving. I’m forever grateful to God that you exist in my generation, for blessing you with a loving and supportive family, an undeniable talent, grace, charisma, and surrounding you with loyal friends & FANILY. It is my prayer this day that the good Lord continues to fill your heart with unexplainable joy, surround you with unending love, perfect health and may he continue to be fill your cheeks with laughter. I also wish you many more victorious and peaceful years. Happy birthday my love! I love, love, love you even in your imperfections ?????… enjoy!
