3. Miss Nigeria photos from red carpet
As always, the Miss Nigeria contest attracted plenty of celebrity guests who couldn’t miss the chance of witnessing the selection of 2017’s most beautiful Nigerian girl. Check out the most impressive looks from the event!
Omotola Jalade Ekeinde rocked an off-shoulder red gown that reminded everyone once again what a fashion pro she is.
A rich and sparking pattern against a black background is a recipe for a successful red carpet look, which Chioma Ude clearly knows.
Of course, one of the most anticipated guests at Miss Nigeria 2017 was the winner of the previous year’s contest Chioma Obiadi, whose crown looks particularly good with the elegant magenta dress.
Not every red carpet outfit should be a dress – sometimes a smart mini suit, like the one Bolaji Fawehinmi is wearing here, is exactly what it takes to make a lasting impression on the fans.
Miss Nigeria is a very special event, and Queen Martins made sure to dress just right – her gold sparkle dress is equally festive and fashionable.
