EME Signee, Niyola just glowed in an April by Kunbi lace dress, giving us all sorts of sexy-elegant vibes. And those gorgeous gold shoes didn’t go a miss, either…

Singe and actress, Denise Zimba turned heads as she showed off plenty of skin in a Harry Lekwane piece. We’re not sure we’d rock something so exposing outsie of the house, but with Ms Zimba’s body… we could be persuaded.

Mavin star, Tiwa Savage, who grabbed the ‘Most Gifted Female (West)’ award on the night, kept things simple in her metallic Lanvin wrap-dress and Christian Louboutin sandals. This is a lady who doesn’t disappoint with her style and we can safely say she’s successfully continued that notion.

Yemi Alade showed off her legs as usual, wearing a white fringed dress and gold cuffed heels. The star’s warrior-like wardrobe did well to turn heads but it was the poses that truly nailed the black carpet.

Later, Ms Alade changed into something a little edgier for an energetic performance, but kept the fringed theme with her one-shouldered feather accessory and fringe-hem twinset. Nice!

South African actress, Pam Andrews was also out to turn heads, eyes and necks, stepping out with a sheer dress with only lace details covering her privates. Not sure we’d rock this or the accompanying blue lipstick, but noone can say she looked boring or ‘average’.
