Red Carpet Roundup April 29th – May 5th: Lupita Nyongo, Sandra Ankobiah, Naomi Campbell & More!

Last week was jam-packed with events, from the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards to Vogue’s MET Gala and TIME Magazine’s Time 100 Gala in New York City.

The world’s most stylish ladies came out looking amazing in their frocks, fresh with springtime prints and colours, but with only space for 10 on our best dressed list, you’ll have to read on to see who nailed it…

arah Jessica Parker had the last word on style at the event, taking the white tie dress code and Charles James theme to the best place possible. Her good taste (or her stylist’s) manifested in this over-the-top black and ivory ensemble by Oscar de la Renta, complete with long Diamond embellished gloves and flower adornments in her hair, completely reminding us of Carrie Bradshaw – the character that made this star so famous in fashion. What a way to steal the spotlight and how better to end our list of unforgettable MET Gala looks. #Perfection.
Starting with a look from the 2014 MET Gala and it’s couture-themed celebration of Charles James, Sarah Jessica Parker took well to the white tie dress code and stole the spotlight in an ivory ensemble by Oscar de la Renta and long diamond-embellished gloves – a definite show-stopping moment and our favourite look from the event.

Doing a 180 and going for a casual look, over at the Mayweather Vs. Maidana Pre-Fight Party, presented by Showtime at MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Khloe Kardashian was seen looking luxe, lounging in soft, feminine hues that have a moreish effect on her figure. We love this relaxed look on Khloe.

Yvonne Okoro
Back to glamour, Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Okoro made the ’60s look so cool at the VGMA’s in Ghana on Saturday and we are loving everything – from her hair to her sequinned optical illusion dress.

 

But Lawyer, TV presenter and one of Ghana's most loved fashionistas, Sandra Ankobiah was our best dressed at the VGMAs. She kept her hair, makeup and accessorising  simple, so as not to distract us from the decadent detail and silhouette of her dress. #Clever.

t was all about polka dots for Lupita Nyong’o who stunned in an Oscar de la Renta peplum bodice-gown in the classic print. The dress’s skirt needed a bit more tailoring, but it was a great look nonetheless.
Lupita, who was at the White House for dinner last week, was spotted in polka dots by Oscar de la Renta, with a gown that bore a peplum and skin tight bodice. As usual this actress oozed class and we love that though the dress appears classic, she had fun by opting for bright lips.

Omotola at the Time 100 Gala
Nollywood actress, Omotola was a lady in red at the Time 100 Gala red carpet on Tuesday, 29th of April, wearing a bold dress with monochrome detailing. We like the cut-out sleeves of Iconic Invanity’s design and how she accessorised her look with drop earings, black bracelets, chic ponytail and neutral lips. #Perfect.

Supermodel, Namoi Campbell stepped out in fun fur for Fendi’s London store opening on May 1st, looking every bit the unrivalled beauty she is. Her makeup is always so striking and those legs? They go on forever, especially with her clever choice of strapless shoe.

Also in London, Ethopian model Malaika Firth went simple for the Harrods Pradasphere exhibition launch on 30th April, wearing details that just scream ‘exquisite.’ Satin shoe? Check. Decadent fringing? Double check. Do we love it? Three thumbs up.

And finally, Ugly Betty star America Ferrera was spotted embracing Spring’s 2014 rainbow trend in a multicolored confetti dress by Givenchy, at the 29th annual Lucille Lorte Awards. We absolutely love how she opted to give her look yellow accents, pairing her dress with a thin belt, Jimmy Choo pumps and a Jimmy Choo candy print box clutch – a set of accessories we’re seriously considering stalking her down for…
