Who Wore It Better? Toke Makinwa Or Sharon Ooja?

For many celebrities, being seen in the exact same outfit as another celebrity can be quite upsetting. For us, however, it’s just a way to see how one outfit can look on two different body types, appearances, and personalities. Recently, Toke Makinwa and Sharon Ooja were spotted in similar looks, and here is everything you need to know.

1. The dress

The dress in question was made by Lanre Da Silva Ajayi, a renowned Nigerian fashion designer who has created lots of stunning looks for Nigerian celebrities and regular fashionistas. The dress belongs to the SS19 Glow Blaze collection, which features lots of sparkles, glitter, contrasting shades, and everything that makes fashion interesting.

The Lanre Da Silva Ajayi dress that was favoured by not one, but two iconic Nigerian celebrities, is a very eye-catching one. Underneath the translucent black fabric, there is a black undershirt, but the most interesting addition is the myriad of golden beads that looks fabulous in photos but probably looks and feels even more fun in motion.

2. Toke Makinwa’s look

Toke Makinwa is not just a beloved TV and radio personality, but also arguably one of the best-dressed Nigerian celebrities. You can always count on Toke to rock some of the latest and most extravagant fashion, and she has a special place in her heart for Nigerian designers, which is why it was not even remotely surprising that she chose to support the Lagos-based label.

The Lanre Da Silva Ajayi dress is eye-catching enough on its own, but Toke styled it in a way that drew even more attention to the look. The purple over-the-knee boots, the trendy sunglasses, and the giant golden hoop earrings complete Toke’s outfit and once again showcase her unconventional taste in clothing.

3. Sharon Ooja’s look

The popular Nollywood actress Sharon Ooja has also proven to be a fashion-savvy celebrity. Every a couple of days, Sharon uploads a photo of her stunning looks, and all of her fashion choices are met with huge praise from her fans. Sharon also favours the works of Nigerian designers and often wears their works.

Her version of the Lanre Da Silva Ajayi dress features rather understated styling compared to Toke’s fashion choices. Sharon completed her dress with simple black stiletto pumps and attention-grabbing golden earrings. She also chose a nice little purse in a trendy rhinestone and velvet design.

4. Who wore it better?

Like us, you probably enjoy both renditions of the black and gold Lanre Da Silva Ajayi dress. We think that Toke’s version of the outfit is perfect for her fashion sense and personality, while Sharon’s look is more universal and could inspire other fashionistas to try this design. Who do you think is the winner here?
