Through their crafts, style and wow factor, these ladies have made a name for themselves in the Nigerian and African entertainment, fashion and lifestyle industries. While others seek to be photographed, these ones are sought after at events by top and upcoming photographers alike. They understand the power of style, the effect it has on their personal brand and how to further harness these for their career growth, so they strategically use style and fashion to their advantage whenever they step an inch out of their homes.
These are the 9 celebrities and socialites who made the cut on our annual most stylish list. You know them, we RAVE them!
Media personality Toke Makinwa is one of the best dressed Nigerian celebrities! Whether it’s casual, business, or special occasions, Toke stays bringing her A-game when it comes to style and she is not afraid to take fashion risks. Everything about Toke, from her makeup to her accessories and clothing, screams sophistication and near-perfection which is why she’s rightfully earned a spot on this list.
Being a ‘fashionpreneur‘ requires that you are confident, define your style and own it. Abisola has done exactly this and more. Her love for high-end luxury fashion items is well-known. Her style is impeccable and she stays slaying within and outside of Nigeria. You wouldn’t believe that she is a mother of three!
Rita Dominic redefines class with her sense of style which is fresh and simple yet always sophisticated. She knows just how to make a fashion statement with the most basic of fashion pieces. No matter the attire she chooses to rock, she always keeps it classy and edgy with a matching poise.
Lisa Folawiyo of Jewel by Lisa shows us that being a designer is a lot more than making others slay and look pretty in fabulous outfits while you sit looking drained behind a sewing machine or a sketching book. She is constantly serving us hot sauce with her personal style. Lisa is one who does not follow trends but creates them as she has perfectly mastered the art of mixing seemingly unrelated prints, textures and colours to ensemble the most rave-worthy looks.
Bolanle is one who reinvents herself every time when it comes to her style. The TV presenter who constantly supports budding Nigerian designers has no qualms stepping out with so much vivacity. Yes she may have a stylist but it takes a stylish woman to pull off an outfit that was chosen for her and Bolanle comes through every single time.
Consistency is key and Mimi is one consistent Style Raven! She is never afraid to look different, supports Nigerian designers and knows how to pull off every outfit that comes across her way. She always keeps it trendy, fresh and classy!
Modern day Cinderella is what we like to call her. If she is not putting her best foot forward when it comes to her style, then it is not worth her time. This is one of the reasons why Toni is constantly slaying with her chic and adventurous looks and has easily established herself as one to watch out for on every red carpet.
Mercy is arguably the most fashionable and talented “Yoruba” actress in the Nollywood industry and she never fails to deliver with her ever lovely outfits. She is talented at carefully combining patterns, colours and cuts to create stylish looks that accentuates her amazing body.
Mo’Cheddah is definitely not afraid to express herself, take fashion risks, create a statement through her style and has grown into being a fashion designer. Her style is trendy and edgy yet screams of elegance.
