A party is only as good as the crowd, the vibe and in this modern age the number of #FOMO moments it’s produced and the launch of The Studio, Yummie Ogbebor’s new style, and retail hub gave us all that and more. You know you are in for a good time when the hostess has brought her A-Game in an insane DNA by Iconic Invanity dress. Body goals and style goals right there – let’s do this!
Coming through to toast her success and of course, browse for inspiration (Christmas and New Year are literally around the corner and this is definitely a spot of choice to fine the slay-on-sight ensembles!) was a who’s who of the hottest girls in the red carpet game. We are talking Rita Dominic, Michelle Dede, and Osas Ighodaro Ajibade. Fashion royalty came in the presence of Lanre Da Silva Ajayi and Kiki Kamanu and holding it down for the guys was Denola Grey who looked a vision as per usual.
The world of television was ably represented by Tallulah Doherty whose new hair and frankly, killer manicure had me considering that perhaps now was the time to upgrade from my bore snore normally nude, occasionally red nails. I’ve done the style stalking for you – one can totally copy-paste if you head to Wow Nails Lagos for the Confetti Beauty look! Tosin Odunfa was his eloquent, suave self and interviewed those assembled about what the lady of the hour, fashion and style meant to them.
On one level it might be described as a super-starry night, but this was a reflection of Yummie herself and her contribution to the industry so far. It was also a family affair, her ever-elegant cousin and financial titan when she’s not making a killer cocktail for guests to enjoy Aishetu Dozie ensured everything ran smoothly.
The original Studio 54 was all about the glamorous and artistic crew of New York gathering to have fun by all means but also create magic that four decades we’re still talking about and referencing, whether it’s through fashion, style, literature or art. The opening of The Studio at SB Youme had a similar vibe to it: watch this space Bella Stylistas, this was more than an event, this was a happening!
