The 2017 Africa Magic Viewer's Choice Awards took past this past weekend and while our girl, Minnie Dlamini, held her own as co-host beside IK Osakioduwa the event's red carpet looks remain one of this past weekend's hottest topics.
No wonder they needed a three-hour red carpet show and multiple hosts situated at different points on the carpet just to get through all that fashion! Although viewers seemed to enjoy having SA's diamond as a co-host for the evening, there's a reason we aren't talking more about what Minnie wore... She and IK only changed twice during the ceremony :(
Na wa oo, this recession affected IK' s and Minnie's wardrobes this year at the #amvca2017 .they changed only twice.— mimi amueh (@myymzz) March 4, 2017
But her simple black gown looked quite elegant. We do wish she made more effort to showcase local design talent with a more show-stopping look.
Although she did try to keep it local (to Nigeria) with this look
Minnie Dlamini looks like she lives in a Compound with a 4 meter boundary wall , 7 servants, and a pool in the dining room 🔥🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/SqPMhZy7x9— 🌻🌻 (@TheNameIsAnswer) March 5, 2017
No worries on the fashion front however as the evening's other guests brought their A-game like Nana Akua Addo in this Leo Almodal masterpiece.
Or Toni Tones in Yemi Shoyemi
We LOVE this pink look on Elma Goldwin
We were also in love with this look until Nigerian publication, Bella Naija, pointed out that although these looks were made by different designers, they were highly similar.
Hey BN Style Watchers, are you following all the fashion from the 2017 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA)? On the red carpet, we spotted actress Adesua Etomi in a lovely Mai Atafo floral gown. She completed her look with drop earrings, a gold clutch, a chic up do and stunning make-up. The piece is similar to the dress actress Kerry Washington wore to the Emmys. Kerry’s dress is by Marchesa.
This plum look on Somkele Iyamah Idhalama is another one of our favourites.
Take a look at the rest.
Actress and model Makida Moka decided to go a very different route with this polarising look that most loved and others hated.
Legendary actress and glamour girl, Rita Dominic stunned in this structured gold number
While TV presenter, actor and model Wofai Fada dropped the ball in this creation that looked like a high school design project.
Lala Akindoju's dress also seemed to be another fan favourite
As well as our very own Lira in this Gert Johan Coetzee number
And the last batch of looks...
Which looks were your favourite?
