The 3rd edition of the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, AMVCA, certainly loved up to its billings as one of the most organized shows in Nigeria, yet. Besides the anticipation of knowing who gets rewarded for their acting skills and some for their work behind the scenes, the red carpet turned out to be the most anticipated segment of the show. It wasn’t without its fair share of drama; from glamorously well put together ladies and dapper gentlemen, to the hilarious looking and downright offensive. These are some carefully selected the good, the bad and the downright ugly fashion hits and misses at the AMVCA.
Adunni Ade: After two children, there is no denying the fact that she has a banging body, unfortunately, the red see through dress does her body and her brand which she is trying so hard to build, any good. A thigh high slit, a plunging neckline and see through all at the same time, is one too many.
Kendra Etufunwa: She looks anorexic and should have known better that to get entangled in this sleeveless chiffon. With no bust line, I wonder what purpose the plunging neckline serves
Yaw: Ok, so he is a comedian, but the AMVCA is not a comedy show. The invite stated black tie or glamorous and his ensemble is nowhere near these. He is better suited in the early 20 century as a village headmaster.
Ramsey Noah: I want to assume he took all of his clothes to the laundry a day before the awards and laundry man played a fast one on him by not returning them when he should. And by the time he realized the laundry man wasn’t going to show up, it was already too late to go clothes shopping. Or how else does one explain his decision to wear a pair of tight fitting jeans to a black tie event. Oh and the loafers, he couldn’t find any of his dress shoes.
Susan Peters: What in the world is that contraption she is wearing? Is that Nigeria’s version of a fur coat but made of chiffon? Susan used to be a good dresser when she started out as an actress. I wonder what has gone wrong judging from her too many misses on the red carpet in recent times.
Denrele Edun: His whole ensemble deserves two words – No comment. An attempt to decipher what it is will leave you in a worse state than when you first saw him.
Belinda Effah: I guess she was trying to channel her inner African goddess but lost the plot somewhere along the line. Nothing is right about her look from head to toe.
Eucharia Anunobi: Speechless! Still trying to understand the plot here; her hair, makeup and dress.
