Hiย BellaStylistas! BNStyle Plus Sound is back! This is a mini-series our team developed during #BNSWomensMonth22 to celebrate how our faves use their style to elevate their brand and inspire us with their fabulous looks. We will be highlighting their fashion highlights each week this month. For this year’s edition, we will spotlight 4 amazing female artists with incredible styles.

Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe, professionally known as Ayra Starr, is a Grammy-nominated Nigerian singer-songwriter who was discovered by Don Jazzy when she posted an original song on her Instagram Page in 2019. Fondly called “The Celestial Being”, she swiftly rose to prominence following the release of her EP with the hit track Away.

In 2023, she received a Grammy nomination in the “Best African Music Performance” category for the 66th Grammy Awards, but it’s not only her musical prowess that makes her magnetic, Ayra Starr is known for her impeccable fashion sense which is a vibrant mix of sultry inspirations and the early 2000s trends. Proudly Gen-Z, she isn’t scared to rock her chic minis, sleeveless, and crops, brilliantly styling them to suit each occasion she graces.

Her pristine beauty choices, featuring exquisite hair and makeupโ€”from braids to sleeky straight extensions and curls; clean girl aesthetics to Y2K glamโ€”stand her out from the pack. No matter what she decides to rock, this star has repeatedly proven herself a hitmaker: yes music, but fashion statements too. Let’s explore Ayra’s alluring style together, shall we?
