The 2009 Ovation Red Carol lived up to its promise to be a carnival of red red red and... more red. It was an opportunity to make style statement... even in the loud, boisterous romantic red -- in all its shades.
The red spirit of the season not only dominated, but marked out the significance of the night’s attire, as celebrities, fashionistas, journalists and shakers of the society gathered in different shades of the colour to impress.
Dressed in stunning outfits such as spaghetti, empire, sleeveless and halter neck among others made with fabrics such as satin, ankara, cotton, taffeta and mercury, they walked the runway leaving lasting sensual impression.
Colours were extensively used, but the most visible and lively of all was red, which created a strong aura of love and excitement.
The fashionistas with their naturally image of excitement, energy, enthusiasm and confidence were pleasant to behold.
Davina, a new rec ording artiste, however, stood out, strutting the carpet in a very thrilling red, blue and yellow ankara combination.
The event, which held at the Expo Hall, Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, lived up to its billing. It was not just a night filled with musical entertainment and comedy, it was also an avenue to give hope to the less-priviledged in the society: people living in poverty; the people Wish for Africa are serving through its low-cost medical centres in Mafoluku, Ketu and Alagbado!
A donation of N1 million was given to Wish for Africa at this glamorous event to support the various projects of the Charity!
The event was co-sponsored by UBA and the Lagos State government .
