Kiki: This is my idea of the perfect Red Carpet Dress. Glamorous, elegant yet not too over the top. Feminine & Fabulous. Miss Edewor is the epitome of Svelte in this dress.
Promise: She looks so elegant and statuesque in that dress, it fits on her like a glove.
Romola: Completely agree with Kiki, this look is all sorts of Red Carpet Glam, that gold waist clincher is doing wonders for her waist. I also like that you can still see the length of her pins in this number.
Kiki: Fun and Flirty! I love the yellow! it compliments her gorgeous complexion! The black belt cinches in her waist which gives the fabric a gorgeous shape to drape into.
Promise: That’s a great dress for the summer season, the draping makes it more bohemian and the black gives it a more dressed up feel, appropriate for the event.
Romola: I sort of prefer Eku’s hair slicked back but she certainly knows how to own her floor-lengthers.
Kiki: I’ve never been a fan of white shoes. But Eku shows that white footwear is not just for brides! It goes so excellently well with her dress. I love the ivory & forest-like print combination! Stunning! Bold accessories (Necklace & watch) and simple red lip works very well with this look!
Promise: She looks so classy and sophisticated in that dress, and the colourful accessories give a nice playful edge to the overall outfit.
Romola: Who would have thought white shoes could work? She’s donning the footwork like they were made specially for her. I’m loving the understated glam look going on, perfect choice of necklace too.
Kiki: Yellow is definitely Eku’s colour! I love the fact that she never fails to accentuate a simple outfit with accessories! Check out her Brogues!! So easily to over look as the yellow is so bold and domineering, but those grey and brass Brogues are simply gorgeous.
Promise: This is a great way to do colour blocking in a minimal way, with the pink lips and yellow trousers and then the white to tie it all together.
Romola: See what I said about Eku’s hair pushed back? Eku’s ‘effortless chic sleek’ is just perfect for this look and yellow definitely suits her skin tone.
Kiki: I love her Plum lipstick!! Plum was THE colour of choice for make-up artists/beauty enthusiasts last Autumn/Winter. It was also the choice of many Designer’s as seen on the Runways! Those Prada Shoes are DIVINE. Not too fond of the Chanel bag, I agree with Promise, a glitzy clutch would have been better. However the Jumpsuit & long necklace is a classic look.
Promise: I think this outfit would have worked better without the jewellery, or by getting rid of the bag and bangle and keeping the long necklace and adding a simple clutch.
Romola: For some reason, I think an alternative pair of shoes would’ve worked? Stilettos maybe? and definitely not the chanel handbag with those sandals.
Kiki: Leather Shorts? Check!, Sheer Blouse? Check!, Strappy Wedges? Check! A red lip for added Fabulousity? Check! SUMMER 2011 TREND SCORE? 100% Well done Miss Edewor!! Five stars and two thumbs up!
Promise: Love this monochrome look, leather and sheer fabrics go so well together.
Romola: Hair.Slicked.Back – LOVE. She’s definitely Tux-Colour-Friendly, the wedges are definitely yummy for lengthy pins as Eku’s.
Kiki: Love the subtle contrast of the Prints! oh..Those Prada Shoes!!!
Promise: That’s a great print, anything that’s cinched in at the waist is really flattering to the body, and the updo works well with the statement dress.
Kiki: Why do I instantly think of Blair Waldorf when I see this? Maybe its the Alice band on her head? The simple LBD accessorized with a tan belt in that ever so chic way of knotting a belt? Maybe its the monochrome shoes. I don’t know. but what I do know is that this is quintessential upper east side dress code! Classic, effortless and stylish.
Promise: You can never go wrong with a simple LBD, and the way she’s worn it at the shoulders is very flattering.
Romola: This look certainly isn’t trying to hard to show off a stylish girl in simple yet lovely dress. Loving how the exaggerated ‘V’ on this dress isn’t showing any cleavage.-Classy
Kiki: Loving the chunky gold choker with a mini silver medallion on her neck! I spy..what seems to be a vintage belt! It looks fantastic with the leather shorts. Its lovely to see that Eku Edewor can switch it up with her styles! Is there anything this lady can’t pull off? From svelte Red carpet floor fillers, to trendy ‘girl-about-town‘ in a simple tshirt and jeans and now we see her showing us a bit of her daring, rock n roll side with this look! Fabulous! That’s style!
Promise: An edgy look that she pulls of really well, and lipstick to match.
