1. Iyabo Ojo

One thing about this Nollywood diva is that she almost always understands the assignment!

Still not over her King Of Thieves premiere look, which was beyond epic, Iyabo Ojo took things up a notch for The Woman King premiere.

Dressed by the one and only Toyin Lawani of Tiannah Empire, everything about this look embodied a daring spirit, fierceness and the fearless nature of a powerful woman king!

Unarguably a 10/10.

2. Toyin Lawani

It wouldn't make any sense if the person behind - arguably - the best look at the movie premiere didn't slay as well.

The Tiannah Empire boss came through with a caped outfit and sandals that gave off an Egyptian feel but with a twist.

She made sure to add a bold royal statement with a gold crown and a choker neckpiece.

Definitely a 10/10.

3. Bambam

BBNaija star and Nollywood actress, Bambam is another celebrity whose outfit was indeed note-worthy.

She draped her curves in a black & white print dress and accessorised with a spear as well as cowries.

While she stuck to the theme of the event, it wasn't quite as fierce seeing as she gave off more 'queen mother' vibes than a warrior woman king in the halterneck maxi.

Rating this an 8/10.

4. Idia Aisien

The fast-rising Nollywood actress also followed the theme of the event. She donned a red velvet playsuit with a keyhole neckline.

The caped outfit was accessorised with a gold neckpiece and hooped earrings.

While the eccentric nature of the look stuck to the theme, it also gave off superhero vibes - more like Spidergirl or Supergirl.

Rating this a 7/10.

5. Lilian Afegbai

The Nollywood actress brought regality, classiness and elegance to the red carpet in this South African print dress.

The caped look was accessorised with chunky pieces of jewellery. While this look was glamorous, Afegbai looked more like a smart-mouthed princess than an Afro warrior.

Rating this a 7/10.

6. Diana

Big Brother Naija 2022 star Diana turned up in style for the movie premiere.

The ivory beauty, however, did not quite understand the theme of the event - judging by her outfit.

Albeit gorgeous and classy, it appears little effort was put into the look, devoid of anything 'Afro Warrior-ish' as was the theme. She looked more like a king's bride than a warrior herself.

However, she earns points for the elaborate headpiece, pushing her rating up to 6/10.

7. Modella

Level Up ex-housemate, Modella, was also part of the stars at the event. However, her look just wasn't giving.

The model turned reality TV star sported a look that seemed more like a last-minute creation for a photoshoot than anything else.

Modella earns points for the hair, makeup and jewellery as they appeared to be the only things that much effort was put into.

Rating this a 6/10.
