Celeb Style Profile: The Fiercely Well-Fashioned Yvonne Nelson

Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson is known to be one of the sexiest actresses in the African film industry. Also a model, film producer, entrepreneur and occasional singer, she started her career as a Miss Ghana contestant and came into the limelight after her big screen roles in Princess Tyra and Playboy, and has since grabbed many awards for her talent. 

When it comes to style, Yvonne has earned her status as a fashionista, and with her amazing body, she is a designer’s muse, going from glamorous party girl and an all round woman, to demure diva with the change of a dress.

Next, we show you the star’s wardrobe evolution and give you a few reasons why we crush on her style…

Ms Nelson can successfully pull off anything – effortlessly, too – but that wasn’t always the case. What got the young actress noticed at first was her statement hair and accessories, with which she said, “more is more.”



Yvonne has gone from using statement pieces t0 pushing style boundaries, and from fun to flirty – always taking risks with her look and gathering fashion followers along the way.



She shares her style mostly on Instagram and although she is not one to be seen making red carpet appearances, the few times she has stepped out, she has been a hit!

For the Ghana Movie Awards in 2013, Yvonne astounded in a metallic halter number, looking gorgeous and in great shape.

The star fast became what she is today – one of Africa’s darlings, known for her quirky and edgy street style…

…Not that she doesn’t have her casual days too, though. Here’s Yvonne spotted arriving Heathrow airport, in a comfortable ensemble.

And on Instagram, the star updates a low key look of tank top and boyfriend jeans, with a simple pair of strappy heels.

Whatever she wears though, she looks radiant and still shows off her love of statement pieces.

One other thing we notice she cant keep away from is her love for plunging necklines – something she always chooses to up the ante when stepping out to events.

Here we can just about make out a peplum too, enhancing her tiny frame…

And here, Yvonne wears another black deep-v dress, this time a maxi, and looks just amazing.

…And pulls of this sheer panel perfectly with big hair and metallic details that we just love. Yvonne knows how to mix it up!
