NIGERIANS ARE VERY FASHIONABLE IRRESPECTIVE OF THE SOCIAL CLASS WE BELONG TO (HIGH,MIDDLE OR LOWER LEVEL).WE ARE PACESETTERS ANYDAY.

FROM MY OWN LITTLE OPINION MY NIGERIAN FASHION ICON FOR [b]THE FEMALE GENDER IS NIKE OSHINOWO (SHE IS VERY ELEGANT AND ANYTHING SHE WEARS FITS THE PURPOSE AND HANGS WELL ON HER).

MALES DONT REALLY HAVE MUCH TO SHOW FOR FASHION BECAUSE THEY DONT CREATE IMPRESSIONS EASILY (BEING THE CYNOSURE OF EYES AT EVENTS).FOR NIGERIAN FASHION ICON FOR THE MALE GENDER I GIVE IT TO LANRE OGUNLESI (I ADMIRE HIS SENSE OF FASHION AND STYLE ANYDAY,NOT TO LOUD BUT CLASSIC).I ADMIRE HIM A GREAT DEAL

Re: Who Is Nigerian's Number One Fashion Icon by oyinda3(f): 8:21pm On Aug 09, 2009
the question is what not who. and NOLLYWOOD takes that cake.
i mean come on. all the ladies watch the films partly to engross themselves with what lace or ankara toyin tomato or bukky right is wearing to greet her husband, attend the party etc. then they take their recommendation to baba tailor to get it sown for the next event.
they even learn to walk n talk like the mamas sef. n also learn from nollywood, d next insult to dish out on househelp, gateman etc
ha fashion is life. life is fashion lol

Eyimofe Atake.
Omawumi Akinnifesi is stylish too, she always looks hot on the red carpet.
Ifeoma Williams favours classic, clean cut, elegant pieces and she knows how to rock em IMO.
Sadly, the fashion risk takers i know aren't in the public eye.

Without a doubt, Nkiru Anumudu.
Re: Who Is Nigerian's Number One Fashion Icon by spikedcylinder: 4:44pm On Aug 10, 2009

I agree to that to an extent. She dresses well but Nkiru's ridiculously botoxed face can't make me be objective about her.
Re: Who Is Nigerian's Number One Fashion Icon by speeddater: 4:49pm On Aug 10, 2009
NIKE OSHINOWO

Beautiful, ageless, classy, red carpet worthy on and off the red carpet.
looks good in  couture, looks good in casuals, looks good in native and looks good beside her husband.

She can make anything look goood just by wearing it or standing beside it. And she can give Eva Parker a run for her money

Re: Who Is Nigerian's Number One Fashion Icon by geerufus(m): 8:48pm On Aug 10, 2009
I go for Chris Oyakhilome in the pastors' category. He is the best dressed (man of God). While our President Yar'Adua is the worst dressed leader in the universe. Check out his saggy babariga, tontinrin (pencil) trousers and cheap pam sandals. Disgusting men! grin grin grin grin grin grin grin grin grin
