Just when you’re thinking, “where are the days of Rita Dominic and Emeka Ike?” She returns to our screens in a box office thriller and to top it gets nominated for an AMVCA. And before you can think again, gbam! she’s in a Zaron Cosmetics or Slim Tea campaign. Next, she’s featured on CNN’s African Voices. So you realize she’s been around all along; she’s going no where and rightly so, because the word timeless truly defines Rita Dominic.
Arguably the most stylish actress in Nollywood, Rita Dominic has consistently branded herself as a force to be reckoned with when it comes to style and grace. She’s ever flawlessly dressed whether formally or casually. She understands the power of great personal style and the connection same has with superb image branding. Which is why the name Rita Dominic never goes out of style – pun intended – and when the red carpets roll out, we just wanna spot Riri, as she’s fondly called, because she never disappoints.
2016 has been a year of premiers and award ceremonies for Rita, and expectedly she owned every red carpet she was spotted on. As a true style star and fashion queen, she’s seriously proven that one doesn’t have to wear foreign-made dresses to stand out on the red carpet. Rita supports Nigerian designers like no other. This year alone, she’s been spotted in more than a handful of indigenous fashion brands. From Elvira Jude to Lisa Folawiyo to Lanre Da Silva Ajayi and Yutee Rone, it’s pretty obvious that there’s a tactically effort by Riri and her stylist, Yummie Ogbebor, to promote made in Nigeria / made by Nigerians pieces. It’s safe to say that Rita is a wilful ambassador of the #buynigerian movement.
All hail the queen of red carpets! Here are 13 times Rita Dominic was simply perfect for the red rectangle in 2016.
