Babajide Sanwo-Olu attended the Heineken Lagos Fashion Week, organized by Style House Files, which occurred last week from Thursday, October 26, 2023, to Saturday, October 28, 2023.

While the event showcased fashion, celebrities, and style influencers, a controversial moment emerged. The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, attended the event and even closed the show.

He walked the runway for Nigerian designer, Emmy Kasbit, donning a blazer from that designer. This generated diverse reactions on social media.

Suga Belly, an X user, said:

“Wait, so you Lagos people invited Sanwo Olu to Lagos Fashion Week in the same October that the Lekki Toll Gate Massacre, which Sanwo Olu admitted inviting the Army to? Anyway, what did I expect? Lagos people are shallower than an Nkwobi bowl.”

Omujuwa seemed to have a different opinion and also shared on X saying,

“As though a state Governor shouldn’t be seen advancing the creative sector in a state that more or less keeps the Nigerian economy on its toes, take away the creative sector, and Nigeria’s soft power goes to zilch!”

Pamela Adie also took to X to say,

“This here is one of our main problems. We keep giving our oppressors platforms. We keep endorsing them. We keep smiling with them. We should have nothing to do with them. Nothing at all. But this is Nigeria. Anywhere bele face.”

VikkyVee on Instagram commented,

“Sanwoolu is always going everywhere not like he is seeking reelection or something. I think he’s just a cool man.”

Sanwo-Olu expressed his pride in the Lagos Fashion Week, which he described as “an epicentre of art, culture, and expression”.

He also reiterated his government’s commitment to supporting the creative industry, which he believes has the power to transform the city and the economy.

“Creativity isn’t just about fashion; it’s an economic force and a catalyst for growth,” Sanwo-Olu said. “We’ll keep investing in our creative minds, ensuring they have the platform to shine.”

In a post on his X page (formerly known as Twitter), governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu said,

“More from my time spent with the creative forces of Lagos witnessing the incredible display of creativity and talent at the #LagosFashionweek.

I have no doubt that this event will continue to elevate our city’s fashion scene showcasing innovation and style.”

Ayo Edebiri Makes Another BAFTA Red Carpet Statement | Fab.ng

Ayo Edebiri turned heads at the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) on February 19th, 2024, in a stunning ensemble by Bottega Veneta. Her look was a perfect balance of elegance and sophistication, showcasing her sense of style for refined fashion.

Ayo Edebiri graced the red carpet, captivating the audience with her sophisticated and radiant look. Opting for a peach column gown, she embodied elegance, adding a touch of glamour with a creamy beige feather shawl.

The dress was made from flowing fabric that cascaded gracefully down Edebiri’s figure, perfectly complementing her slender frame. The column silhouette accentuated her height and created a statuesque presence. With the halter straps offering support and structure, the plunging neckline created a hint of sensuality that was well-balanced. The fitted bodice further defined her silhouette, showcasing her curves in a flattering way.

Adorned with a creamy beige feather shawl, her shoulders flowed with graceful ease. The delicate feathers cascading down her back mimicked the gentle sway of a summer breeze. Their neutral hue, a perfect counterpoint to the vibrant peach gown, created a stunning display of harmony. Every movement danced with the feathers, adding a touch of captivating drama to her already captivating look.

She completed her outfit with shiny silver high-heeled shoes and clean white silk opera gloves, while the wispy white feathered shawl trailed behind her on the red carpet.

This Bottega Veneta creation wasn’t just visually striking; it also conveyed a sense of timeless style and understated power. The clean lines and classic silhouette echoed the brand’s signature aesthetic, while the subtle details like the plunging neckline and halter straps hinted at Ayo Edebiri’s individual flair. The overall look was sophisticated and memorable, perfectly capturing the essence of a red carpet event.

At the BAFTA Awards, Edebiri was nominated for the EE BAFTA Rising Star Award along with Mia McKenna-Bruce, Sophie Wilde, Jacob Elordi, and Phoebe Dynevor. McKenna-Bruce won the award.

Although she didn’t take home an award at the prestigious BAFTAs, Ayo Edebiri’s participation went beyond mere attendance. Later that evening, she co-hosted the glamorous British Vogue Fashion + Film party, turning heads in a stunning Bottega Veneta outfit.

At the British Vogue Fashion + Film party, she opted for a relaxed vibe over full-on glamour. She chose a simple yet chic combination of denim trousers and a silk shirt, adding a touch of sparkle with metallic silver pumps and a matching necklace.
