With back-to-back statement appearances at some of the most sensational events this year, Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer-songwriter   Temilade Openiyi, popularly known as Tems — has taken her rightful place as a style star to watch out for on the global scene.

The star was spotted making another fashion statement at fashion’s biggest night The Met Gala. It was Tems’ debut appearance and she did not fail to make it remarkable as she showed out in a monochrome mermaid corset dress by London-based eponymous fashion label — Robert Wun, led by namesake Hong Kong-born fashion designer.

According to Vogue, Robert’s designs exude “escapism, futurism and feminism”, themes very much in tune with the Tems brand. Nonetheless, for her Met Gala Look, Tems worked with a stellar glam team including her go-to stylist Dunsin Wright, and a remarkable Archivist Kim Russell who made amazing inputs to the ideation and execution of the outfit.
