When asked what Style is, Omowunmi Akinnifesi, former most beautiful girl in Nigeria, who I think is one of the best dressed ladies in this country, said
"Style to me is not something that is cultivated. It is something that is inborn and comes out with time. When you begin to grow older, style comes naturally and you just begin to discover your own kind of style"
What stood out for me was; Style is not cultivated, it's inborn.
Is it really? Then why the hell wasn't I born with it...lol
But seriously is Style inborn or some people just happen to have really good stylists/designers or grow into their own over time, or see a lot on TV and fashion mags to copy from? (guilty! :-))!
What do you guys think?
Speaking of Style and dressing fab, for the first time ever, I made Encomium magazine's best dressed list. Hmmm, I was rocking mehn...lol. It was myself, Omowunmi Akinnifessi, Stephanie Okereke, and Uche Jumbo. From the Guinness 250 outing.
Koko Mansion Evictions
Moving on to other things, two contestants have been evicted from Koko Mansion...
They are...Rekana and Victoria.
Rekana Sharon Ojong “ I guess I was able to cope with the demands of being isolated with 11 strangers in the mansion, because I kept my eyes fixed on the goal” Rekana began, “the 5 million naira prize and the opportunity to be classified as an ideal Nigerian woman was my primary motivation – but after a while the education we were getting in the mansion became the major motivation – we were taught several things such that we learned how to manage a home on budget, we were tutored by Grace Oforiokuma from Style and Grace, and we received countless lessons in poise, elocution, etiquettes, and even how to tie gele – but more significantly I learned how to live with other people, and how to control my temper”
On who should win “at first I was thinking Rita, but when I thought about it – I discovered that Rita needs a great deal of polishing before she can possess the qualities of an ideal woman – since then, I’ve come to believe that Bolanle deserves my vote because she is intelligent, smart, well-spoken, and beautiful – so I’d be campaigning for Bolanle.
Victoria Oloye on being evicted "I can’t be angry at D’banj, because I know it wasn’t up to him – the viewers had voted, and whoever had the least number of votes had to leave – I was found guilty, so it was okay for me to leave”
On who should win "I’d cast my vote for Chidinma any day – any time, because she’s a kind-hearted and virtuous woman, despite the fact that she’s not perfect, she exercises a very high tolerance level when dealing with conflicts in the mansion – she also tries to advise you on how to do things better, but the best part is that despite the fact that she’s from a privileged family, she hardly puts on any airs, and I believe that’s how an ideal woman should be”.
