1. What happened at Ovation Red Carol 2017?

It seems like every respectable celebrity in Nigeria was invited to the event. Perhaps, the two most anticipated guests were Nigeria’s two richest men, Femi Otedola and Aliko Dangote. Moreover, there was no shortage of renowned musicians performing at Ovation Red Carol: the stage was graced by iconic music artists, including Davido, Tiwa Savage, 2face, DJ Cuppy, D’banj, and many others.

One of the things no one was expecting that turned out to be a delightful surprise was the reconciliation between Davido and Dele Momodu. The two famously fell out in 2015 due to family matters and unexpectedly made up, hugging on stage for everyone to witness.

2. Women’s fashion at Ovation Red Carol 2017

Ladies certainly brought a new level of fashion at Ovation Carol red carpet.

The timeless leopard print is a safe choice for an important red carpet event, but it’s very successful nonetheless.

A perfectly fitting black dress with a pencil skirt and 3d flower detailing is a recipe for a beautiful and very appropriate red carpet outfit.

There were plenty of authentic African dresses to admire at the Ovation Red Carol 2017, but we especially like this emerald and aqua pair of gowns.

Lace was one of the most popular fabric on this year’s red carpet, which is not surprising – it looks simply perfect for ladies of all ages and fashion styles.

Many ladies preferred to go for the casual chic for this event, and this sparkly dress with frill sleeves certainly caught everyone’s attention.

Sometimes a simple solid-colored bodycon dress is all you need to make a lasting impression on the viewers, especially when you combine it with the right accessories.

This red lace peplum gown would be a great choice for a wedding or other important event, but it works great for a celebrity-studded red carpet too!

This lady is here to show everyone how to do maternity fashion in style. This gold and the red satin dress is simply irresistible!

3. Men’s fashion at Ovation Red Carol 2017

Guys also did their best to look handsome at the Ovation Red Carol red carpet this year.

The neutral color scheme of this outfit is effortlessly spiced up with the addition of a polka dot tie and casual loafers.

There is nothing wrong with wearing a plain-colored Agbada to a red carpet event, especially when you pair it with eye-catching shoes.

One of the most elegant choices of a native Nigerian outfit was done by the next man, whose pink-colored Agbada looks simply flawless.

The next gentleman came to the Ovation Red Carpet 2017 dressed to the nines, and his bold choice of an outfit certainly paid off.

Sometimes a starched white Agbada is all it takes to create an impressive red carpet look, and the red hat works great too.

One of the most beautiful examples of embroidered Agbada of the night was rocked by the next gentleman, whose rhinestoned loafers are what ties the whole look together.
