Bella Disu, executive director at Globacom stepped out at the inauguration of the Alliance Française Lagos – Mike Adenuga Centre in Lagos.
Her Bridget Awosika sheath is a study in dichotomies with the angelic white hue and playful ruffle detail contrasting with the no-nonsense silhouette and modest neckline. One always expects to make a bold splash in Bridget Awosika’s signature ‘basics with a fresh twist’ aesthetic and this look is a masterclass in modern and feminine but timeless, classics.
The swept back hair, dramatic dark eye and simple jewellery only added to the drama of this dress. A statement bib necklace and drop earrings helped the outfit go from being a pretty work event look to something special for the momentous occasion.
We like to see Bella Disu showcase her innate sense of style, and we really enjoyed this subtle yet spectacular outing plus there’s nothing we love more than seeing a BellaStylista Boss!
