      Lol I think she’s trying to pull a Mark Zuckerberg. Billionaire but simple in appearance. Lol

      There’s a thin line between simple and tacky.. Linda crosses the line pretty often.

    Powede is a babe plus one. Gosh! Dark skin dime. Linda got more money than all these babes combined but manages to look like a shop attendant draped in all her design duds. Wawu! Mochadah looks yummy in that dress. All these celebs that shout affordability Upandan when releasing stuffs and then slap 10k and above on them. How many average young chaps could afford to buy such? It’s alright. ?

    Not sure if it is my eyes or the camera of my phone playing tricks on me, but most of the ladies in the pictures before the men,look like mgbeke’s..The dresses/outfits look cheap,they look like they used to look when they were still struggling,hustling or up and coming..Make up not good, outfits no structure..
    Linda Ikeji…..maka why? H2T a no no.
    Powede looks stunning
    Tosin Ajibade needs a stylist,she never gets it right.

    All the best to the nominees

    Linda has the poorest taste in bags…. money but no taste

    Love Bolanle’s dress minus the hem- very unstructured.
    Toni Tones in that dress would slay even at the Oscars. Dress, makeup, jewellery all on point.
    Linda Ikeji, seriously? You just threw on the first thing you could find and came on the red carpet? Tsktsk! You can and should do better.
    Lamide, not feeling the look.
    Most of the ladies looked good. Oh, Chika Ike, you need to ditch that tailor. You have passed that level ok?
    Gents? I shall leave it blank like Toke’s chapter 10
    *mike drop*

    I think this is one of Tosin Ajibade’s best looks. She tried.

    Lin Lin and Chika Ike – looking like matrons.

    Mo can pass for Toke’s sister.

      December 19, 2016 at 1:21 am

      Exactly what I was thinking too. I think this is the best I’ve seen Tosin Ajibade look. I’m really surprised by the previous comments on her look.

    December 19, 2016 at 1:14 am

    Tosin Ajibade looked good. Not sure she photographed good tho..
    Bolanle’s dress photographed well but the hem was just flying all over the place.
    Linda is a perfect example of wearing designer head to toe and still looking blehhhh…

    I can’t see Toke Makinwa here, then the show must be DRRRRRRRRRRRRYYYYYYYY

  17. Cookie

    December 19, 2016 at 6:16 am

    I take back my words/comment on Tosin Ajibade,guess i got stuck on how she normally looks.. This is the best i think she has looked in resent times, she sure looks way better than Lindiwe, Chika Ike and even Somkele(whose hair and make-up was just not it)

    I love Lammy(Lamide Akintobi), but my girl needs a class in red carpet look.
    Some slayed as usual, some stepped up their game, and some just flat out disappointed…

  18. Fokasibe

    December 19, 2016 at 7:01 am

    All the people saying Tosin Ajibade didn’t try abeg FOR ONCE!! Try to be objective. She looked nice and well put together. Period. Haba? Give a girl some credit where it’s due. She obviously put in work to try and she did good IMHO. Tosin, well done!! ?? I see the improvement.

    Aunty Linda!? Maka why? You shouldn’t have bothered at alllllll! You should have feigned sickness. You have so much money but can’t afford a stylist? Even I, a no lister ask my friends/fam when I have to go out and need advise on what to wear just to be safe. Nothing wrong with getting help when you obviously don’t have a good fashion sense. And that hair!! I just can’t Aunty Linda. Abeg abeg abeg.

    Chika Ike. Where is that multi Million Naira dress? You shoulda worn it oh? This one here- don’t make no sense.

    Lamide gets an F. She didn’t put in any effort and it’s sad. Somkele: I’ve seen you look way better so it’s a C for you. Ini Dinma lacked her usual glow as is just Aii! Abimbola Craig is lackluster, Mocheddah recently lost her wow factor, she looks bland since she hired her own obiomas to save cost and tried to sell us some of their tacky outfits – which we sure ain’t buying and none of the guys tried. NONE!

    Powedei looks nice, Tony Tones has really upped her game and I love itttt!! I think she’s dropped her trying too hard persona and she’s finally found her place. Bolanle….hmmmm something is off with that dress… ?

    That’s my two cents on these looks thus far…

    December 19, 2016 at 7:22 am

    I would usually not comment on fashion on BN but because of this dismal performance of Linda. Linda seems to be only comfortable in jeans and pants! Haba madam. Please consult Rita Dominic fast.

    Chika this your dress? After all ya birthday in the continent ?

    hey ladies, we have to head back to the gym. when your body looks like a box in a dress, its time to hit the gym. age is not on our side we gotta put in the work. notice how i added the “we” lol. linda get a stylist or stay home.

  21. Rani T

    December 19, 2016 at 8:26 am

    Aunty Linda, so you have all that money for what? All that money and you cannot get a stylist? *sigh* If you can afford all those bags you like to display you surely can afford stylist, okay let’s say the naija stylists are vexing you that’s why you will not hire one, you can still afford imported one, why have you refused?

  22. Californiabawlar

    December 19, 2016 at 8:26 am

    So unlike you guys, I think it’s interesting that Linda has more money than all these women put together but she looks way simpler. It teaches some kind of roundabout financial lesson. Yes, Linda can do better but I kinda feel bad for all these ‘baffed up’ sisters with no steady source of income.

    • Ariere

      December 19, 2016 at 8:52 am

      Your comment makes no sense. We are talking about a woman who goes out and about with a 5m Naira bag On any normal day, drives around in an Over 70m naira SUV and lives in a house worth almost 700M naira.

      Linda spends even bigger than these girls. Only difference is she supposedly has a larger Networth.

    • Bey

      December 19, 2016 at 10:19 am

      Fashion is not always abt d money you have and d designer duds you wear.
      Sum ppl are just born with style, they can wear just a tee, jeans and sandals and look better than someone in a designer dress.
      Linda’s everyday wear I see on instagram is always nice, but she doesn’t know how to dress for events.
      Future awards is usually a dinner type evening wear event, she looks like she’s going for a garden party.
      Nice outfit but wrong event.

    • Californiabawlar

      December 19, 2016 at 11:42 am

      We are fighting now? Okay….
      Some of you don’t know how to have a civil discourse. Is that how you go about in real life or is this uncouth persona just an online thing? Smh.
      I gave my opinion, which by the way was opposed to almost every comment on the thread without attacking anyone. Just think about it, I could have written my comment as a response to any of the previous ones that were straight dissing Linda with the same tone you did mine. But I thank God I had more real sense (as opposed to your fakeass fashion sense) than to do that.
      I think home training on how to behave in public needs to now include online interaction. Stupid children stay their asses online.

      P.s. I kinda agree to disagree with your main point…but think about it….would you rather have money and drive, or a great fashion sense with barely nothing to show for it? I choose the former o!

    • Bey

      December 19, 2016 at 12:51 pm

      Dear what are you on abt in ur second comment. what dos home training have to do with what I said?
      have u taken ur meds today or d dosage needs to be increased.

    • Californiabawlar

      December 19, 2016 at 1:08 pm

      What were you on about in your first comment talking about what I said didn’t make sense? Maybe…no definitely, someone should have done a better job teaching you how to disagree with others in a civil manner. Also now you’ve gone even lower by inferring i have mental issues…on top of Linda Ikeji’s pictures? Lol. Well done, you’re doing a terrific job proving my point.

    • Californiabawlar

      December 19, 2016 at 1:13 pm

      @Bey wait, why did you respond to a comment that wasn’t directed at you to begin with? Or are you @Ariere? Okay I’m done with y’all BN wrestlemania folks! Always spoiling for a fight and tagging each other in! The absolute most.

      December 19, 2016 at 3:37 pm

      @califrornia… to be polite, your comment didn’t make sense… no need to cry

    • Californiabawlar

      December 19, 2016 at 8:44 pm

      @Derin I know, you very right. I used too many words for you guys. I’ll cry…in mourning of the money someone paid for your education.

    • Derin87

      December 19, 2016 at 11:18 pm

      The irony. Check your punctuations and grammar, then mourn for your own education 🙂

    • babes

      December 19, 2016 at 9:10 pm

      Does it occur to u dat Linda only wears designer stuff? Go to her instagram for d tags from.head to toe,then u knw she probably dressed in millions but still looked tacky to d event. Simplicity doesnt necessarily mean cheap.

  23. Madman

    December 19, 2016 at 9:08 am

    Linda Ikeji stay looking like a house girl. Even house girls are known to dress better than her. What’s up with that wig? Yuck.

  24. Dayo

    December 19, 2016 at 9:14 am

    Toni tones best dressed! Wow!

  25. rin

    December 19, 2016 at 9:31 am

    this is the best of Tosin Ajibade aka olorisupergirl have seen so far, and of cos there is room for improvement, u can do better. as for Linda, I tot Laura is your sister and a fashonista as she calls herself, biko always consult her to style u if u don’t want to pay a professional stylist cos I don taya for this ur looks up and down

  26. Tobereal

    December 19, 2016 at 9:53 am

    @CarliB…Linda’s outfit and bag is probably more expensive than the others ensembles. …so not sure where your analogy is going .

  27. Bey

    December 19, 2016 at 10:12 am

    im a linda lover but she doesn’t know how to dress for events.
    And her weaves or wigs are always off.

  28. Bubu

    December 19, 2016 at 11:24 am

    This Linda’s look no be here at all. What is Laura’s job as a fashionista if she can’t help a sister out. Its not about wearing 1millon dress or carrying designer bag, it can be way cheaper and look soo nice. Biko wetin she wear. No no no!!!

  29. Ooma

    December 19, 2016 at 11:31 am

    Errm CarliB
    Your analogy is wayyyyy off today, Lin Lin has no financial lesson to teach here, this is a woman who wears shoes and bags worth over 5 million just on an ordinary day to go buy pizza or go to the mall/ meetings..She ain’t teaching nada, she just cannot assemble dresses/accessories together to get a killer look no matter how hard she tries

    • Californiabawlar

      December 19, 2016 at 8:47 pm

      Where are you people finding the ‘r’ ?
      How am I supposed to take your opinion seriously? Lol.

    December 19, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    Aunty Linda why why why !!!!

    Yo Mo Cheddah could slay in a trash bag . She slays life . Most Libras do .

    Back to Linda, is it only your gate you slay in front of ? Guess money can’t buy taste or class only expensive labels !

    • babes

      December 19, 2016 at 9:14 pm

      Obviously she takes 100 shots in front of her gate n post d best 3 per day,as per u cant bring d man out of d bush kinda thing!

    December 19, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    So you all say Linda isn’t top notch in the appearance department here eh? Ok. Thanks then Linda. It helps when you don’t present as if Baba God is partial, and that to you alone. How man (abi woman) pickin for dey manage the green-eyed tormentor if plus money, plus natural beauty, plus fame etc etc Linda, you also come join to dey slay each time you dress out?
    A beg, am ok with Linda’s looks.Thanks.

    December 20, 2016 at 12:40 am

    Linda is alright jare. She might not be a slayer fashion wise she can always improve…. But she has done well for herself financially and that’s all that matters. All the fashionista and slayers what have they contributed.

    December 20, 2016 at 4:57 pm

    Wow. Life in the spotlight is not easy. Criticism on steroids. Gosh
