Though there was never any question that Arese Ugwu’s birthday would be a star studded affair and the event did not disappoint, with a mix of entrepreneurs, society figures, influencers and celebrities.
Attending the blowout bash that brought together all her BFFs —and many other famous faces.
The birthday girl wore a black lace dress by Fablane by Derin with a chic, black bob. We enjoy the slightly femme fatale air to her vintage inspired look.
Guests like Bolanle Olukanni, Mimi Onalaja, Lala Akindoju,Timini Egbunson, Tosin Durotoye, Toke Makinwa, Orezi, Ini Dima-Okojie, Latasha Ngwube and Toni Tones all showed up in equally chic ensembles.
The night started off with cocktail hour at Circa Non Pareil, followed by a delicious sit down dinner, at the newly minted Lagos hotspot on Admiralty Way in Lekki.
The menu included hors d’oeuvres and entrées by Chef Hadi Bazan and a special 24 karat gold Tomahawk steak for the celebrant herself.
The room was fully swathed in festive decor, with a backdrop of metallic balloons and mirrored the joyous occasion from the tinsel to the balloons to the lighting.
