LOOKING flawless has always been the hallmark of red carpet ceremonies. And the last Sisi Ologe red carpet was no different.
Glitz, glamour and panache ran through, as many of the celebrities, who showed up, looked really stunning.
Some of them were seen on cropped jacket, Little Red Dress, Empire, one-shoulder dress, spaghetti, bum short, to mention a few. Many others came out in plum gorgeous dresses that pulled out all the stops.
Hair, make up, jewelry, for many of the ladies, were flawless, and the colour were perfect for their skin tones.
However, somewhere in the shuffle of all of those sequins and stilettos, former model and the publisher of FM&B magazine, Linda Ikeji, stepped out in a Little Black Dress and trendy black footwear to go. Not only was her combination a good idea, she stressed the fact that she had shimmered the runway in cool, comfy wears.
West Africa Idol runner up, Omawumi Megbele, did not go wild in her dress, as she wore a simple short dress. She was gorgeous in her minimal.
This has all been the realisation of the dreams of Iretiola Doyle, the multi-talented woman who conceived the idea of Sisi Oge, as a celebration of the iconic essences of African culture. Ireti, is a television presenter; an actress (see Sitanda of AMBO); a designer as well as an event organiser.
