Beyonce's Met Gala dress comes to Nigeria..:-)

Left: Beyonce in a skin tight Emilio Pucci dress at the Met Gala event in May. Right: model/beauty queen (Miss Valentine '07) Mariam Elisha at an event in Lagos recently. You think that's the real Emilio Pucci dress? Mariam is loaded, so...:-)

pls linda her's is far from b's.
dont get it twisted

kelly said...

I dont think so. Mariams looks cheap. I mean cant you see the difference in beyonces material and her trail thing looks cheap too.

Definitely not, its just a look alike probably from another designer, dresses like this are not really hard to make with a damn good designer!

Different designs. Beyonce's design is a the bottom of a butterfly at the end of the embroidery, while the other ladies embroidery looks like some Bug. Also, the color of the embroidery is different. It may either be the same designer or a good knock off. But i think it is wishy washy for a celebrity to wear similar stuff another celebrity has worn. It just looks like something a crazy fan or stalker will do.

Are you blind? how could you even ask that question. sometimes you just ask such daft questions so people can comment. i just had to comment to make that obvious to you.

Emilio Pucci or no Emilio Pucci...Mariam Elisha looks gorgeous in that dress also. As a matter of fact, it looks better on her than it looks on Beyonce. But both ladies still look great there.

Abeg I no fit laugh. If you cannot afford the cloth get something else. Na by force? This replica is just embarrassing. She should be embarrassed. Chai.

Dunno if it is an Emilio Pucci, but the dresses ain't the same. Different designs in terms of detailing on the front of the dress.

Anonymous said...

It could be Emilio's but the embroidery different. it is not as extravagant.

Nonye said...

Linda .....If u say she is loaded then I think she could afford it.

It is not Emilio Pucci's dress. that collection is not yet in the stores. it is an Ok replica

Anonymous said...

i bet its a copy, too much discrepancies, from the neck to the opening at the chest even to the cut of the bodice not to talk of the inferior chiffon material used for the ball part of the gown. and please let nobody tell me it was made to suit her. nah nah nah!!!

Laaraa said...

Heck no! It's so not the same. THe material is so so different, the design at the neck is different even the design/embroidery on the body is different. So..no, it's not the same..#nohardfeelings

Leo said...

Must it be Emilio Pucci dress sew in that style? Kudos to Nigerian designer who designed Mariam Elisha's.

Ch5335ng said...

The dress with the Baphomet design! Mariam's looks like a very good copy IMHO.....

nana said...

This is a confirmed case of "Photocopy ko easy".

BIG DEAL ???????????? PLSSSSS !!!!

taye said...

WHY IS EVERYONE SAYING IT IS FAKE.JUST BECAUSE THE EMBROIDERY IS NOT THE SAME AS BEYONCES'S DOES NOT MEAN MARIYAMS IS FAKE. THERE IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY THAT BEYONCE WOULD HAVE HAD HER PATTERN DESIGN AND SHADE OF COLOUR CUSTOM MADE FOR HER.MOST CELEBRITIES DO THAT SO THAT ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OF THAT PARTICULAR DRESS WILL NOT HAVE AN EXACT MATCH TO THEIRS

sexy said...

see d difference in shape! see flat tommy and see akpu belle! d oda girl's own looks cheap, (d ma terial)

Anonymous said...

Bia! Dis Linda.... O di k'inacho okwu... No basis for this comparison right here....

Bee said...

See these daft pple here insulting Mariam......As if all tailors in naija dont copy some foreign design they spotted.

Pssssst. Oya go and bring me an orginal naija style. Nonsense!!!!!

Haters oshi. And it definitely looks better on her than on Beyonce. At least she looks like she can breathe and walk in it.

Anonymous said...

hahahaha i think the naija version is a copycat made by some naija tailor hahaha..so obviously cheap!

Kemiismyrealname said...

Linda you are too mischievous.

ChichiLuv said...

Taye is on point with his response. And if it's a fake then that's a pretty darn good fake and she wears it well!

Anonymous said...

taye God bless u for me. fact that embroidery is not d same does not make d dress fake. bey cud hav paid more for her dress being d celeb that she is, me hav a feeling that 2nd dress is from the same designer....just dat one is cheaper tha the other o tan.

Not the real one tho. But it suits her and looks more comfortable than Beyonce's own that makes her look like she's gasping for breath

Anonymous said...

No one should ever wear a dress after Beyonce has worn it ..

You'll just look like her maid!
