“Married to the Arts” was the theme for last night’s inaugural edition of the Film Gala – an event organized by Filmhouse in partnership with Moët and Chandon to celebrate groundbreaking achievements in the film industry.
For an event without any preceding red carpet inspiration, dressing for the occasion was a feat in itself but our favourite style stars did it with the grace and cinematic allure while some just went for pretty floral glamour.
From Toni Tones‘ custom Lanre DaSilva Ajayi dresses to Shaffy Bello‘s floral number, see who stole the sartorial show at the Film Gala 2019.

As one of the hosts for the evening, Toni Tones knew she had to make appearances in winning looks! And she did just that, working with Lanre DaSilva Ajayi, she nailed her big moment in 3 sultry yet chic dresses. Our favourite two; a sea green flowy dress with ruffles and an asymmetric hem and a fuschia form-fitting gown with an encrusted thigh-high slit.
Shaffy Bello took us by surprise in a floral midi dress designed by STITCHES by Chioma. The veteran actress is known for her floor-length gowns at red carpet events but the sweetheart pink dress with petala-shaped ruffles topped with a statement flower-headpiece, was a welcome turn of events.
The top blogger stepped on the red carpet very much on-theme giving us Chadwick Boseman at the Met Gala 2018 vibes. He wore religious-inspired gold embellishments on a cape shaped tuxedo set from Rogue Ng with black shoes from Jésù Ségun London.
Sharon ooja Egwurube
The cut, fit and fabric pairing of Sharon Ooja’s look was literally a marriage of art. She wore a Vintage Ruffle Trish O. Couture dress that flowed down flawlessly into a sea of butter yellow ruffles.
For one of her favourite stars to dress, Fablane by Derin gave a modern take for the theme of the night using traditional Aso Oke fabric with minimal hand beading.
Osas Ighodaro Ajibade
Gorgeous! On hosting duties, Osas stole the show in a Toju Foyeh silver dress and a classy up-do. The cut and the volume of the dress made it a winning look.
We love a stop and stare floor-length look on the red carpet, and Seyitan looked ravishing in a curve-hugging pink Jane Michael number that was as timeless as it is was fitting for the occasion.
Wowing on the red carpet, Vimbai looked elegant in a custom Pmluxury dress with a matching wing-like addon cape.
Elizabeth looked pretty and modern in a pale magenta Ayo Van Elmar gown with a multi-coloured shawl. She added a statement headpiece, and a silver clutch purse for the altogether effortless look.
The actor kept things simple and suave for the evening wearing a striking Michael Odyssey suit set. He paired the Damask suit with a black turtleneck – Parisian style!
Taje came in a winning black number no one could ignore. The figure hugging floor-length dress came with bold exaggerated ruffles on the shoulders -ps: she actually designed the look herself! Her cropped hairstyle and pink purse were perfect accessories for the ensemble.
