The #Underboss, as she refers to herself is none other than Jennifer Obayuwana, daughter of billionaire businessman and founder of Polo Limited, John Obayuwana. Jennifer, whose career is centred on linking the global luxury industry to Africa, has positioned herself as the African queen of luxury. Thanks to the nature of her job as Polo’s underboss, Jennifer is a globetrotter with an undying love for luxurious items, and needless to say, she has mastered the art of pulling off these grande pieces on a regular.
Not one to follow trends, you will tend to find Jennifer pulling off quirky pieces with little effort on a daily basis. Being a fan of Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, the consort of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, former Emir of Qatar, Jennifer’s overall style gives off a glamorous, sophisticated, avant-garde vibe that is also quite timeless.
In a recent interview with Dimeji Alara for Elle South Africa, she revealed that her mother is her style inspiration.
“She is the quintessentially elegant woman. Growing up, I watched her wear gloves and dress up during tea time. She would mix stripes with polka dots. I am also inspired by her matchy-matchy suits with shoulder pads and bold patterns”.
Here’s a look at Jennifer Obayuwana’s ultra-luxe and glamorous style choices…
