Fashion definitely has evolved all over the world. Gone are the days when celebrities will wear anything they like and go scot-free or without catching the watchful eyes of paparazzi. From way back to recent times, African celebrities; male and female, have represented their countries awesomely and in time some created a “métier” for themselves and have decided to standout by always looking fabulous and totally awesome. So, I decided to bring you my top five female fashion icons in Nigeria. Here we go:
1. Rita Dominic
Rita is a top notch Nollywood actress, a Glo ambassador (more like ‘glow…lol) and a fashionista. I call her an intelligent, funny, down to earth and drop-dead gorgeous fashion nymph. This beauty has graced the cover of several magazines, won quite a number of awards and is still winning. There is this feeling you get when you see her smiles that gets to wow everyone. Personally, i ask myself always when scrolling through my Instagram timeline and see her uploads; like she doesn’t get old? Well, like my folks will say “question for the gods” .
2. Omotola Jolade-Ekeinde
Omotola aka Omosexy is a Nigerian actress , singer and business woman who also has reality show. We love her not just because she is a celebrity or a fashion enthusiast but because she has gracefully found a way to do everything exceptionally. She is one of the female fashion and entrepreneurial icon of our time. You will rarely find her dress down and even if you do, she always has a way of making it look awesome.
3. Genevieve Nnaji
When you here “Genevieve Nnaji”, three things comes to mind; intelligence, elegance and overall beauty. Not only is she one of the wealthiest and most beautiful Nigerian actresses, she is a fashion guru with a new fashion line and an appointment as an ambassador to Range Rover. This woman right here is a walking gem.
4. Tolu Oniru – Demuren ( Toolz)
She is a Nigerian radio personality, talk show host and presenter. This woman is beauty and hotness personified. She is one of those rare ones with an awesome personality, body and a shape to kill and die for, i mean…Oh my God! She has definitely mastered perfectly what works for her body type.
5. Mercy Aigbe- Gentry
Mercy really knows how to switch it up from being a ‘stylish chic’ to a ‘super mom’ and ‘a fashion goddess’. She is a Nigerian actress. Smart and beautiful are the adjectives that describes her. Whether off or on screen, she always charges it up in the fashion world with well paired outfits – she is the queen of pairing. Being a fashion diva and a style mom, it’s only proper and ideal she owns one of the most fabulous boutique in Lagos state, Nigeria called ‘MAG DIVAS BOUTIQUE ‘.
