Meet Savannah State’s Stylish governor, Angela Ochello! Beauty, power and style make her the Most Iconic Governor




Every Thursday over the past 12 weeks, The Governor, a high octane political drama from EbonyLife TV has kept audiences glued to their TV sets. The Governor is filled with suspense, intrigue, tension and style. Angela Ochello, our Governor is arguably the most stylish character in the drama.


Angela Ochello was styled by Sandra Itu of Leyi Ush Styling and consulting who gives us an insight into what it was like styling Madam Governor. According to her, every outfit worn by Angela Ochello was custom designed and was done in collaboration with the costume designer.


Angela’s character is a demure yet coquettish when necessary. She believes in dressing for the job, yet likes to look feminine and fashionable. We envisioned a style direction for her and wanted every piece to truly reflect the character. Inspiration was drawn from real life people, well-regarded public servants and successful women. We then went on to refine them to meet our preferred aesthetic.


We went for a contemporary power woman look fused with an Afrocentric style, drawing inspiration from a mix of style icons such as Victoria Beckham, Lanre DaSilva Ajayi, Nike Oshinowo and The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.


As the series progresses, we see Angela move from being Deputy Governor to the powerful Governor of Savannah State, we see her style transition as well. We were excited to style her character as we could also relate to the challenges encountered by women in politics and in other male-dominated fields.


The season finale of The Governor airs this Thursday at 9PM on Ebonylife TV. Be part of the Twitter/Instagram conversation, follow us @TheGovernor_EL and #TheGovernor.

    Okay, I have to say this. I know it’s a drama series and all but she doesn’t have a ‘power wardrobe’. Most of her attires are too trendy and not as official- looking as you would expect to see a governor dress. You can’t be surrounded by men in suits and then show up in a long Ankara jacket over skinny pants. Haba, madam governor.

    How come I have never heard of this. I was just doing my research on the actress. British born and raised now she is working on Nollywood. I am quite impressed that she would be involved in this kind of story making. I wonder if she will ever go back to the spotlight again. Considering that Nollywood curse for actors, not been able to do anything of prestige.

    I must commend the stylist of Angela Ochello for presenting her as a modern day female third world politician: flamboyant, colourful,stylish and daring in their dress sense. They are usually not bothered by the poverty around them so they cut a picture of the nouveau- riche and parvenue. It’s the way we are.

    Well written, touches to the common corruption and guiding on how it can be challenged. Loved the serries and the cast. Immaculately dressed governor who represents the modern society and current politcs. Top notch to all those who were involved in the creation and those who presented it in a form of acting.
