5 Reasons Public Figures Should Dress Properly To Events by BaryPresh(m): 7:23am On Dec 30, 2018
In the entertainment industry, especially the Port Harcourt entertainment industry, it has been observed that most public figures barely put in effort to look exceptional to events. This has been one of the major challenges and could be one of the reasons the entertainers themselves have not being readily featured in billboard banners, front pages of top magazines or even online ads for most product brands in the city.

This issue was further highlighted when RnB singer, Legendary Suni through his Twitter page called on his colleagues in the industry based in Port Harcourt to dress better come 2019, as it is a vital part of the brand.

One wish only! "OUR LOOKS" a vital part of the brand also, 2019 lets dress better please, Dedicated to my colleagues in PH ...@tutuofPH @Patterson__jojo @kobo_medlyn @Princessonums @gistalways @Kobabaunlimited @The22_0spot @Snazzylabels @ceentyarh

In this article, I will highlight the importance of really dressing up to an event as a public figure and looking really outstanding. Here are five reasons why.

1. As a celebrity or a public figure, you need very strong visuals.

While on stage, a little bit above the crowd, you need to use the lights, your image, fashion sense and stage craft to appeal to your audience. Using special outfits or dressing up makes you stand out from everyone else.

2. Being on stage is special!

Even if you grace several stages frequently, you should always feel lucky to have an audience willing to listen to you, especially if they paid to do so. Dressing up specially for an event shows you have regards for your audience.

3. Going to an event or functions well dressed will give your fans or audience a good impression about you.

What you wear expresses you beliefs and tells a lot about who you are. If your audience or fans see that you don’t pay special attention to the art of fashion; they might as well assume you don’t spend as much time on your craft either, be it music, comedy or anything else.

4. It helps you sell your ‘market’.

It is very amateur and unprofessional to think or believe that dressing up on stage or to an event is only about you as a public figure. When you are on stage or at a public gathering, you are like a salesman offering a product (your music, comedy, etc). Your audience needs to see genuine effort and showmanship. Whether it is a pair of jean and T-Shirt, Leather and Chain or a Tuxedo, show them you are there to entertain them. If this does not appeal to you in any way, you might need to stay back in the studio.

5. People first listen with their eyes.

In today’s society, people mostly process information through visual channels. It is only a shallow individual that won’t judge you from your appearance. How you dress goes a long way in determining how people perceive you and your art. Like Marilyn Mondejer rightly said, “Your image is like the weather. People will notice when it is extremely good or extremely bad”. Dressing well to public functions at all time could even get you an endorsement deal (that is, when it is backed up by pure talent, consistency and hard work) or even invites to really classy gigs. Think about it!

Even as these five points above give reasons why public figures should dress better, there are two issued that were raised during my little research and discussion with a few.

1. Some argue dressing up specially for an event distracts from the music or performance that surround the pure sound. They claim it distracts the audience and even the performer. They also claim all that is needed or required of an entertainer is a special talent (good voice for artistes, funny new jokes for comedian, e.t.c) and a good stage presence.

2. Others argue they will rather be comfortable in what they are wearing than look “cool”. That is, they would rather they dress a little better than they will at home. This will help them be comfortable and will help them in their performance.

Personally, I think dressing up specially for events can never be a distraction to neither you nor your audience. Looking good can never be uncomfortable, you can dress really well, be comfortable in what you are wearing and still be yourself. It is just a matter of having a good designer and stylist.

These are just my thoughts. What are your thoughts? Let’s hear you.
