The standard for celebrities will always be higher than that of everyone else for the simple thought that their glamorous lifestyles have taken them into an entirely different realm of existence. The luxury brands; how they style it; where they vacation and dine: these are all minuscule but essential elements to celebrity brand personalities, because they are somehow expected to constantly ooze out an air of importance and glamour.
Though these expectations were set many long years ago, not everyone currently in the limelight upholds the standards expected of them, especially when it comes to wardrobe styling. If anything, these demands show that a lot of work is put into a celebrity’s public image, and that whenever your favourite celebrity, socialite or style star shows up with an A+ look, you have to give them the accolades they deserve!
In Nollywood, we’ve seen the consistent sartorial attempts by the likes of Kika Osunde, Zainab Balogun, Ini Dima-Okojie, Stephanie Coker-Aderinokun and Sharon Ooja, and Nina Chinonso Onyenobi. These divas are reminiscent of true style stars, because their takes are not only modern and glamorous, but also attainable – so much so that fans and fashion lovers could easily re-create them.
Here’s how the aforementioned style stars gave fashion their best shot…
Known for keeping her looks uber chic, Kika’s attempt on athleisure-inspired streetwear infused with class gets an instant A+ from us.
The ability to merge two separate textures into an ensemble and still turn heads is a rarity. Yet, somehow, Zainab proved to be a miracle worker with her choices to the premiere of her latest movie, Sylvia.
And the award goes to… No one who does ‘Chic Glam’ quite like Ini Dima-Okojie, which is why the actress constantly makes our best dressed list at every turn. We particularly love this hot red, monochromatic look.
Just like the Jim Ovia book says “Rise and Shine,” TV girl Stephanie Coker is totally shinning in her loose pink power-suit and though the vibe is laid-back, she makes it triple fabulous with those shoes and the way her hair is styled to the side.
Nina Chinonso Onyenobi
Being the brand ambassador of a clothing store sure comes with its perks, but the ability to have the personality that turns a simple, beautiful piece into something extra-ordinary, is indeed a skill. BBNaija’s Nina definitely made this simple look more attractive and we are here for it.
She’s no Olivier, but every time she dresses up she does a perfect amount of excess. No one can say Sharon Ooja didn’t kill this look right here – she looks like a full snack! YUM!
Omowunmi ‘Mimi’ Onalaja
The right print combination brings about an extra dose of elegance to an otherwise simple look! Plus, the ability to still keep it as casually chic as possible is undoubtedly a skill that Omowunmi has shown us here that she was born with.
Nollywood actress, Monalisa seldom appears on the fashion list, but when she does, you know it’s a look that most certainly will be remembered. There is a likelihood that in five years, this combination will still be very much replicable and stylish! Classic!
