Drumrolls! BellaNaija Style presents the Definitive Best Dressed List of 2017

As we ring in the New Year, there’s a lot to reflect on – and for the team at BellaNaija Style, nothing was more on our brains these last few weeks than who killed it in the style stakes in 2017.

What’s in a list you ask? A lot! If this hotly debated list is anything to go by (Our WhatsApp Group was a mess lol). We discussed and re-wrote, and deliberated and here is the final list (it wasn’t unanimous, but expect more on that soon!)

We like to think we brought together an extensive but interesting mix of It-girls, creative and corporate types as well as fashion business moguls. We tapped our honourees from emerging fashionistas we think our audience should discover, to established figures all around the globe. They all feature varying aesthetics but with one unifying factor  – they consistently display exceptional style chops.
