1. Meg Otanwa at the AMVCA’s
The AMVCA’s are a chance for stars to get dressed to the nines and wear the most dramatic and beautiful gowns they can possibly imagine. Actress Meg Otanwa took this memo personally and stopped the show in a stunning Ujuestelo gown.
The teal one-shoulder dress was ruched at the waist to show off Meg’s sensational figure. The petite actress made sure she had a lot of leg on show as the dress pooled around her feet in dramatic fashion. She accessorised with a pair of strappy gold sandals and a gorgeous pair of diamond earrings shaped like a snake. The dress set social media on fire and was definitely one of the more memorable outfits of the night.

Toke Makinwa has remained in the headlines all year. With rumours of her alleged surgery rife, she’s certainly been showing off her ‘assets’ more and more on the gram. One of her more memorable outfits was the sheer green number she wore to host the MBGN competition.
Toke’s dress was a revealing green evening gown with mesh inserts from designer Tope FnR.

Sal Gbajabiamila, wife of House of Reps member Femi Gbajabiamila celebrated her birthday earlier this year with an amazing Mad Hatter tea party.
For the special occasion, Sal wore and orange tulle Molly Goddard dress which was far from shy and retiring. The dress, which was authentic Sal, was however not everybody’s cup of tea (no pun intended). Some thought it was OTT but whatever your opinion of the dress, you can’t deny that they stylish matriarch wore it well.
