The pre-eminent characteristic of fashion is its ability to tug at the imagination, demanding to unlock a different level of creativity at varying points.
Last week, stylish African divas pursued elegance, diversified their styles, rode on the wings of conversation-starting ensembles, and eschewed all rudimentary style out-turns.
Host with the most sauce is the best way to describe Nigerian media girl, Nancy Isime. Fancy Nancy has made a hobby out of dishing sizzling haute looks back-to-back, especially as the host of reality show—The Voice Nigeria. Last week, she was every inch gorgeous in an Xtra Bride Lagos (XBL) custom-made number that elegantly incorporated sparkle with feathers. Still on the set of The Voice Nigeria, coach Waje redefined the famed color block trend for 2021 in an impressive Mai Atafo outfit as styled by Medlin Boss. She was a sight to behold as she ate the look and left no crumps.
Choosing to do life with another person is an exciting milestone, and deserves to be announced in a Rave-worthy outfit. South African radio personality and ex-beauty queen, Liesel Laurie did justice to this as she broke the news of her engagement looking unapologetically regal in a flowy Ankara print dress and matching headgear by Lufi Di. Congratulations to the couple. Back in West Africa, Ghanaian actress Zynell Zuh shone on her birthday in an all-green shimmery outfit by Zyellegant Atelier. The lewk had one of two major effects: either it had you greening from ear-to-ear, or green with envy.
The styles shared by African women and top fashion influencers last week were nothing short of chic, edgy, and glamorous and it’s safe to say that we are, as usual, living vicariously through them.
