We had a quick chat with Toni Tones prior to her stellar red carpet turn at the Lara and the Beat premiere. Check it out below!
What does your dress for tonight look like?
My dress for tonight is an elegantly tailored gown with embellished cut-outs and a strong pop of colour.
Do you have a skin routine that you swear by?
Coconut oil. It is my go to moisturizer, locks the moisture in and gives my skin that extra glow.
Describe your look in three words
Edgy, stylish and chic
Can you break down tonight’s look for us.
My dress was designed by Yemi Shoyemi, hair and makeup by Serving Faces, earrings and purse are vintage pieces from my wardrobe, and I styled myself.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up on the morning of a big event?
Like every other morning, the first thing I do is pray.
What is the vibe like when you are getting ready? Music? Food?
Music. Always. Good music that everyone can vibe to.
Drink of choice for the evening?
Pineapple juice. I don’t pre-game because I don’t drink alcohol. Might have some pizza or chicken wings for the team.
Toni, what is one thing you must do before walking out the door?
Perfume. I’m obsessed with smelling good.
Most embarrassing red carpet moment
None. I’ve never had an embarrassing red carpet moment. *flips hair*
Any red carpet tricks?
If your dress is really long and they can’t see your feet, wear flats or super comfortable shoes.
What do you typically do on the car ride to the event?
Most likely browse through social media mostly. Ok probably post a photo [on Instagram] of my outfit on the way to the event.
