Nollywood actress, Sharon Ooja, dressed very appropriately for the premiere of a new comedy movie My village People in Lagos last night, having a real, sexy, mystical fashion moment in a custom-made sheer and sleeveless tassel dress by a Nigerian designer, Idiol Nupo.
Keeping the theme ‘mystical black’ in mind, the floor-length black gown was handmade and featured a plunging neckline and embellished beaded tassels all over the gorgeous number.
Sharon teamed the dress with a pair of ankle strap heel sandals in a matching hue and pulled back her jumbo braids, showing off her dangling black earrings and finishing off the look with fairly dark makeup. The actress was very excited about her dress and in her words, she showed up ‘in a sexy version of mystical.’
“Theme said mystical black!!! And when it’s for one of my fav people ever @officialbovi I’ll surely show up in sexy version of mystical ! Off to my village people premiere🙌🏻 wearing this amazing dress by @idiolnupo,” Sharon wrote on Instagram while sharing the photos with fans.
“By the way this dress was hand made my cape was hand made with tassels!!! I can’t wait for you guys to see the videos of this dress I love it so much!!! Thank you beaut for coming through!!!!”
The designer also gave an insight into the dress, describing the gorgeous number as unusual and pure couture. “Brief was DARK but CLASSY, she explained. “I wanted to do something very unusual, pure couture, with tens of thousands of beads hand stitched on the dress, yes the fringe and detailing was hand made, days and nights of hard work, we can proudly say WE KILLED IT! 😜.”
