2011 Headies Red Carpet Fashion

  


Stars of music, film, socialites & wannabes stormed the Convention Centre of the Eko Hotel & Suites, Saturday night in their designer finest. Some looked hot & some made a statement for all the wrong reasons. From Rita Dominic to Tiwa Savage, check out who wore what to the 2011 Headies.
Before we proceed…1 word of advise to the ladies who insist on showing off their legs to these things…if your legs bear a history of scars, use some body foundation. It’s not just your faces that need the coverage. Jeez I’m so sick of seeing hideous legs in super short dresses…we don’t want to see your busted legs..ok rant over.
See photos after the jump…Brace Yourselves…it’s the Fashion Police!

Goldie is known for her dramatic costumes. And she certainly didn’t disappoint in this dress. Her hair and make up were flawless. Wrong choice of shoes though.
I like the minimalistic look on Tiwa Savage. We are so used to seeing her in super short dresses, it’s nice to see her in something covered that shows of all her curves.
Studio 53 Extra’s Dolapo Oni is pure perfection. The combination of her gold jacket with the emerald green playsuit…is so effortless, classy & suited to the event. I also love the pop of colour her purple shoes give. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
Studio 53 Extra host Eku Edewor shows off her long legs in a nude mini number that shows off her model-esque frame. She however forgot to brush her hair.
I do believe OAP Toolz has this dress in every colour. I appreciate that she knows what works for her body, but I wish she would try something different. Her hair is on point though! And I love the shoes and purse.
Oreka Godis Beat FM OAP…Now this one girl who never keeps it boring on the red carpet. She shows off her legs in this Obisidian creation. I love it…and she certainly wears it well.
I like Funke Akindele…I  like this dress on her.... but maybe if it was longer and fitted…
Yvonne “Vixen” Ekwere is another girl who keeps things interesting on the red carpet. You never know what to expect from her. She keeps it classy in this blue number…Not a bad choice in my opinion.
Waje looks elegant in this asymmetric floor length number. Safe choice, but everyone can’t be Eva or Goldie. :)
Your eyes are not deceiving you…Denrele is wearing peep toe booties…yes women’s shoes. But hey…It’s Denrele. I like the yellow on him, it suits him.
Cruella Deville Eva Alordiah…I wonder how many cans of hairspray she uses to keep her hair up? She gets top marks for going for such an edgy look and owning it.  FIERCE!
Muna was also there wearing an orange asymmetric number, which showed flesh in all the right places. Good choice, and her shoes are cute. Her hair and makeup no make am sha…

Jesus Is Our Standard

His intention was . . . that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.
—Ephesians 4:12-13
One time I was comparing myself to the way I used to be, and I thought, I am not doing too badly. Then God said to me, "But Who is your standard? How are you doing compared to Me?" I said, "Lord, I have a long way to go!"
Refuse to live beneath the standard that Jesus has set for you. Keep your eyes on Him and tell Him, "Many . . . are the wonderful works which You have done . . . no one can compare with You" (Psalm 40:5).

TYRESE BANNED FROM RADIO IN DELAWARE


 
While Tyrese continues to promote his upcoming album and movie projects, fans won’t be hearing him on the radio in Delaware anytime soon. Apparently, the crooner, who feels there shouldn’t be liquor stores on every corner near schools, offended the station owner at KISS 101.7 for calling the audience “homies.” Ty’s music will be banned from the station until he offers up an apology, which TMZ says probably won’t happen. Tyrese told TMZ that he simply doesn’t care.

NYC One-Time Shuts Down Occupy Wall Street’s Brooklyn Bridge Protesting With 700 Arrests

occupy wall street protest
New York City police say about 700 protesters have been arrested after they swarmed the Brooklyn Bridge and shut down a lane of traffic for several hours.
The group Occupy Wall Street has been camped out in a plaza in Manhattan’s Financial District for nearly two weeks staging various marches, and had orchestrated an impromptu trek to Brooklyn on Saturday evening. They walked in thick rows on the sidewalk up to the bridge, where some demonstrators spilled onto the roadway after being told to stay on the pedestrian pathway, police said. Most of those arrested face disorderly conduct charges, while others were accused of resisting arrest.
The group has meetings and forums planned for Sunday at Zuccotti Park, the private plaza off Broadway the protesters have occupied.
Some protesters sat on the roadway, while others chanted and yelled at the police from the pedestrian walkaway above. Police used orange netting to stop the group on the roadway from going further down the bridge, which is under construction.
Some of the protesters said they were lured onto the roadway by police, or they didn’t hear the calls from authorities to head to the pedestrian walkway. Police said no one was tricked into being arrested, and those who were in the back of the group were allowed to leave. “Multiple warnings by police were given to protesters to stay on the pedestrian walkway and that if they took roadway they would be arrested,” said Paul Browne, the chief spokesman of the New York Police Department.

Rapper The Game’s Trip To Nigeria Cancelled, Replaced By Singer Joe



According to our sources,  US rapper Jayceon Terrell Taylor better known as The Game will not be performing at the MTN Project Fame West Africa opening gala holding tonight Sunday, October 2, 2011 after the rapper failed to make it to Nigeria.
As reported earlier The Game was meant to perform on the same stage with fellow US act Brandy Norwood and African pop singer D’banj and Project Fame Alumni Iyanya, Praiz, Myke and Chidinma but sources close to organizers hinted that the rapper won’t be gracing the shores of Nigeria.
However, a quick replacement has been made as US singer Joe just arrived Nigeria and is being driven straight to the concert venue as at the time of this report.
The Game who is a frequent Twitter user didn’t drop the notion about visiting Nigerian at any point recently unlike Brandy who tweeted through her @4everBrandy handle ‘On my way to Nigeria!!!! First time but not the last:)‘.
The Game first traveled to Nigeria  in 2008 for the ‘Road To the MAMAs’ show.

Kanye West’s Womenswear Line Is Reportedly Unwearable

Even if Kanye does show his highly anticipated collection this weekend, that doesn't mean you'll see it in stores. Get the latest details.

Kanye is reportedly showing his womenswear collaboration at Paris Fashion Week on Saturday (October 1), and if all the rumored details about the collection are true, it’s sounding like it could either be really haute or a hot mess.

Today, Rolling Stone reported that the collection will probably include “inventive knitwear” and “color blocking,” while Grazia has previously claimed the line is "seemingly based on Samurai, with lots of sporty garments, but in luxury fabrics, with embellishment, embroidery — Japanese stuff — gold chainmail.” We expect nothing less than over-the-top from Kanye, but don’t those details sound like a description of one of Nicki Minaj’s red carpet ensembles when you mash them all up?

The pieces are expected to be "extraordinarily expensive; some of it is virtually unproduceable,” so no matter how beautiful or ridiculous they may turn out, they probably won’t see shelves anyway. It's all speculation for now, but if we can bet on anything: good, bad or ugly, we're sure we'll be entertained.

Ray J Denies Victor Ortiz Collaboration

The singer says he's never been in the studio with the pro boxer.


Last week, TMZ leaked a song that featured Ray J alongside recently-defeated boxer Victor Ortiz. The news raised a few eyebrows because Ray J has ties with Ortiz’s opponent and match champion Floyd Mayweather and now the singer is saying he and the boxer never recorded a song together and that the whole story was fabricated.


"I don't know how the media even comes up with these crazy stories. We ain't never been in the studio together not one time," the reality TV star told Shade 45's "The All Out Show" on Thursday.


The upbeat track, titled "Baddest Girl," paired Ray J's vocals with Ortiz's raps and was produced by DJ Ian Carey. Ortiz has rapped before (under Mr. Ortiz) and released a single called "Catwal" this spring.


As for what's actually happening in Ray J's life now that he's finally decided to bury the hatchet with Fabolous? A new television show and book are in the works, but he's yet to reveal details to the public.
