Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has warmed her way into our hearts with her incredible talent and her obvious taste in style and homegrown designs with her Wear Nigerian project. From Fruche and Amede to Moofa and Ejiro Amos Tafiri,  she has rocked them all.

She stepped out in New York yesterday donning the Alexa hoop dress from The Muse Factory‘s Spring/Summer 2018 Effervescence Collection, as she received The Poets & Writers ‘Writers for Writers’ award. The pretty dress had yellow fur-like hairs protruding from the chest was inspired by a certain species of bees.

Chimamanda styled the hero piece in the best possible way, pairing it with a pair of sleek black and silver pumps with ankle strap and jewellery from her got to brand FF Fine Jewellery.

About the dress, she said: I loved this original dress by The Muse Factory, its effervescent elegance, its elegant effervescence.

Simply put, she agrees with us that this dress is a gorgeous wardrobe staple!
