1. Oluwaseyi Edun

Oluwaseyi Edun took home the award of the Best Young Producer of the Year, but she has at least one more thing to be proud of – her charming look for the night. Oluwaseyi chose a lively orange dress with a one-shoulder design and sequence that she decorated with lace, pearls, and rhinestones.

2. Nkechi Blessing Sunday

Nkechi Blessing was another big winner of the night, scoring the award for the Most Promising Actress of the Year. She may have felt she would win, because that night she looked like a winner in her black floor-length gown with a revealing neckline, sequins, feathers, and an adorable silver clutch to complete the look.

3. Chelsea Eze

Chelsea Eze won the award for the Best Supporting Actress of the Year (English), but that’s not the only reason why she made the news that night. For an event where most other women came in dresses, Chelsea went for a modern and stylish combination of wide-legged trousers and a cropped top.

4. Ayo Adesanya

Ayo Adesanya, the winner of the award for the Best Yoruba Personality Of The Year, decided not to overthink her look for the night. Her black bodycon dress is fairly simple and would even be considered too basic for an awards ceremony if it wasn’t for the gorgeous bead embroidery and the fashionable puff sleeves.

5. Ruth Kadiri

The award for the Best Actress of the Year was brought home by Ruth Kadiri, who was well-prepared for her big moment. Her intricately designed dress made several best-dressed list thanks to the clever construction and the fabulous use of fringe and sequins. Plus, the colour palette of Ruth’s look goes great with her skin tone.

6. Omotola Jalade

Omotola Jalade was the most famous guest at the event and the winner of the Movie Icon of the Year, so, naturally, everyone’s eyes were on her. Omotola decided to go the classically glam route with a floral purple dress, a fabulous rose fascinator, and an orange purse as a colourful accent.

7. Allwell Ademola

The winner of the Best Movie Producer Of The Year title, Allwell Ademola, certainly knows what works for her in fashion. This sparkly black dress with an accent on the neckline is the best choice of an evening gown for Allwell’s personality and body type.

8. Jumoke Adetola

Jumoke Adetola took home the award for the Best Actress of the Year, and she also was praised for rocking one of the most stylish dresses of the ceremony. Jumoke kicked off the autumn fashion season with a classic combination of gold and black, complete with feathers and satin on the neckline.
