Okay, no doubt, it’s a fact that African Fashion is not just a trend, it’s here to stay!
Also, there’s nothing like celebrities putting designs from the Diaspora on the map.
Today, we’re putting a hot light on the FAB celebrities that stepped out in African influenced designs! View them below.
1. Lupita Nyong’o at the BEFTA Awards
IT woman Lupita Nyong’o had to be placed first! To the BEFTA Awards, she wore an emerald green Dior gown with gold accents placed on the waist and wrists, paired with a dark green smokey eye to bring out her chocolate skin. LOVED it!
2. Dorothy Nyong’o at the BAFTA Awards
Being her daughter’s date to the BAFTA Awards wasn’t the only thing that was cute; her jacket and dress combination created by AFWNY designer Kenya’s Kiko Romeo also stole our hearts.
3. Emma Roberts at the Golden Globe Awards
We absolutely love how this amazing Lanvin (Moroccan designer) gown fit Emma. We like the classic look that she went for. I feel as though it’s her best becaue all of the minor details really bring out her natural beauty. From the dress silhouette to her hair being pulled back into a simple style, well done.
5. Kelly Rowland
While in Lagos, diva Kelly Rowland slipped into a dress from Fashpa.com. The dress (Oleku) is Fashpa.com‘s modern take on the Buba (a traditional dress for women in some African cultures). We like it and Kelly wore it well! However, I would have liked to see her wear this outfit with long hair instead of a bob cut.
