This is something I have noticed with Lagos events and the their guests.
When it is black tie or say pseudo-corporate, say maybe a fashion show or maybe a thing by a comedian most Lagos citizens are like Spartans called to war, dressed to the nines, ready to slay the red carpet and sometimes even the photographer. But when it is a concert by the biggest rapper on the street? Well, the regular I-Must-Make-Bellanaija-frontpage event-goers in are thrown. What do you wear? Do I go easy, casual, or dress it down? How far down do i dress? Or should I just do full postal and go j-lo-grammy-red-carpet-crazy?
The result of this confusion is usually hilarious and forms the butt of today’s post: the fashion fail of the #OLIC red carpet which is actually unfair because there really wasn’t a red carpet. Apologies to anyone if this rubs them the wrong way. It’s all simple fun. Here goes:
Dressed like the ojuelegba under bridge danfo–afternoon-money-collector that he really wants us to believe he is but is not…
How ifan aka Ifeanyi (busted!) manages to look ratchet everytime, I don’t know. Must be special power. like x-ray vision.
She looks like that chick your elder used to knack everytime when your parents were not around
Dammit Emma! Just Dammmit! Dunno how this photo made this list! But damn!
This photo is here because I don’t like Dotun and his unpronounceable stage name.
Apparently, Beats FM boss likes Guitars. A lot.
Asa Asika looks like Naeto C’s houseboy. Complete with the hands behind the back look, like Naeto is about to send him for ‘minerals’ or something.
The message on his shirt in case you didn’t get why he came out to party tonight.
This guy needs to cut back on the nkwobi. Obviously, he’s not going to score tonight. Or he might. You never know with this Lagos girls.
SMH Moet. She must have literally rolled from her hotel room bed unto the red carpet in her Pajamas.
This photo doesnt deserve to be here but we like it so much, it made both lists.
Nedu looks like Dbanj’s calabar cook. That collar sha.
this bros doesn’t look happy he is here. Neither are we.
this poor child looked like specialspesh molested her and left her in the eko hotel lobby.
lame print on the t-shirt. Even lamer slit jeans. cool tims though.
I have one of those joggers too but I usually wear them to the gym or on my couch not on the red carpet!
I don’t know this dude but everything was okay till i saw the scarf. what’s the plan? hang yourself with it if the music is wack?
TBH there’s really not much wrong with this outfit. But that stance though. That’s how you stand when you want to fart and don’t want anyone to notice. We noticed. fail.
Casualty one: I think she’s a Vjay of some sort on a popular tv station but in the bid to dress down, she looks like Tonto Dike’s house girl. Big nay.
