On Sunday, June 14, 2021, was the premiere of the Tunde Kelani-directed film, Ayinla, and as expected, stars turned up in their numbers to grace the event.
The theme of the event was 'Cultural Extravaganza' and well, several Nigerian stars made sure to follow the theme with many of them showing off their bold and creative fashion side.
Nollywood actress, Osas Ighodaro, was the star of the night as she emerged as the winner in the Best Dress category, smiling home with a cash prize of N500,000.
Ighodaro who was dressed in a custom-made design by Weiz Dhurm Franklyn, was an ankara goddess redefined. The actress dazzled in a black and sheer dress with multi-print layers with coordinating head and neckpieces.
The designer, Weiz Dhurm Franklyn, describes their brand as 'representing one of the fastest-growing fashion icons that explores unique cultural styles' and it appears they made their star client pretty happy with her look snagging the Best Dressed title.
