Hello, Guys! Welcome to the 2017 red carpet review of the Women of the Year Honours which took place last Saturday at the State Banquet Hall.
The review was conducted by our Online Editor, Yaw and our in-house style writer, Rudolph also known as Ruddy. We speak about our favourite looks, trends that don’t work and the looks that could kill a million souls.
Enjoy the conversation and don’t forget to add your comments, we love to read them too.
Yaw: Buuurssstie 😂😂. How are you? Rudolph: 🤔 Can we start the review of the red carpet from the Women of the Year Honors already??
Yaw: 😂😂Oh why are you outing me??
Rudolph: 🤣🤣🤣 oh No….I taught that was a fleeting moment of an oestrogen overflow and you would snap out of it
Yaw: I’ll pretend as if I didn’t see this and be a gentleman. It was a beautiful event by all standards and the red carpet had everything in there.
Rudolph: Tell me more
Yaw: You know after our last review I got another girlfriend 😂😂😂. Chick says she dies for a man who can talk about other people’s clothes without fear or favour. Hopefully, all my other chicks and they know themselves won’t be angry with me.
Rudolph: Man whore alert.
Yaw: I’m ignoring you again. Let’s begin. Your best dressed, not so best and worst dressed in that order. Best dressed is obviously me 🤗😌 But I’m a good person so I’ll let others take my spot
Rudolph: Lol! If you insist
Rudolph: Siren for best dressed. Berla learns and I love that. The dress spoke for her and no needed accessories. Just perfect
Yaw: I was sitting right behind her and I was observing her. She looked sleek and that’s the Berla I know. Berla reads and to me, that’s even sexy. She went for a black SheByBena design this time around and the chemistry is perfect. I love the ponytail and the makeup. The train of the gown is just the right length and the artwork plus all the other tailoring stuff are done right.
Yaw: Joselyn Dumas is my best dressed. I don’t even care what you have to say. She also went for a sparkling and shimmering She By Bena number. I love how it’s sultry yet classy. Pump heels and silver clutch is magic. She’s giving me Olivia Pope goals in that hair. Joselyn Dumas pulled another Joselyn Dumas on us.
Rudolph: Uneven dress length isn’t my thing.
Yaw: Please its style. Miss J don’t mind this hater. I’ll call you okay??
Rudolph: Shirley is just slaying right here. Take cues people.
Yaw: Shirley is my third best dressed. I love the bejewelled bodice, side gathers, and the colour choice. It’s the expensive version of musician Eshun’s VGMA outfit. Congrats Auntie Shirley!! Who knows you could cast me in your upcoming movie. 😂😂😂
Yaw: Nana Aba’s Boyfriend or is it Lydia Forson’s?? Well, whoever rocks his boat. Kojo Yankson looks good. He’s my best dressed male guest. I’ll definitely wear this for my other best friend’s wedding just to make her husband feel jealous 😂😂
Rudolph: Why are you this evil?? Kojo you look good.
The Okoro Sisters
Rudolph: They all looked stunning..Especially my lady in red…She stole the show. These sisters know how to work the red carpet.
Yaw: Our Ghana version of the Kardashians only that with them one sister is popular for her talent. I think Yvonne stood out in her Pistis gown and she finally shamed all her haters who claim she doesn’t have clothes so she hardly attends events. It’s a beautiful dress and the red hair will make Rihanna jealous. Roseline and Elizabeth are also rocking their outfits.
Yaw: Sexy momma. This is what you get for being friends with a stylish lady like Joselyn Dumas, her style begins wears off you. I love this sexy Celine dress
Rudolph: The makeup girl looks great.
Rudolph: She looks elegant and age-appropriate too.
Yaw: Ageism much?? I don’t care about age but Mrs Theresa Ayaode is the stylish case of the corporate woman. She knows what makes her look good and dishes out her cash to go for it.
Rudolph: That’s why you will continue to speak at such events and inspire others.Thank you. You look great
Yaw: I love Eugenia’s outfit. But she could have left the duku for our deeper life and Pentecost friends. The look went from sexy to Mmakuo in a split second.
Rudolph: Very cute even though I think the base is too much
Yaw: Dear designer of Doreen Andoh’s dress which is probably Quophi Akotuah, go back to the drawing board and work on your craft. Too much always ruin things. I love Doreen Andoh’s new look. It’s refreshing and Disney princess inspired. Her makeup was on point. However, that style is so déjà-vu. Tu comprend ??
Rudolph: The feathers and the African Print isn’t working for me and the down looks too long
Yaw: I love her dress. But what’s with the need to add feathers to every outfit. It’s almost like when you wear feathers you’re extra sexy. She was wearing Sophia Webster shoes and those are really expensive.
Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings
Rudolph: Mrs. Rawlings always looking like an Art Project.We love you!
Yaw: Please she dresses better than many Ghanaian women. I like it. Kaba and slit all day.
Karen Kash Kane
Rudolph: Makeup is a bit much.But this is Karen here.So oh well…I like the dress…It’s simple with a pop at the back…Props to u Mama!
Yaw: She did the makeup herself. Give her some credit. For a stylist, I think she could have done more with the outfit but it’s okay and the Colour is different as well.
Rudolph: Kafui…the dress is ok…but I hate the shimmer and cut off the lower region. It should have reached the floor. The top is all the shimmer you need
Yaw: The outfit is a peplum, it has a sheer fabric for the upper area, its high slit, what other style is in one single outfit? Okay, we get you want to make a statement but this is like an essay. Girl simple is sexy too
Rudolph: Oh ok…Caroline, we get this look. Since the passport office incident, you’ve decided to be more conservative.We don’t judge, we love it.
Yaw: Stop dragging people’s unfortunate incidents into your review. I even feel bad right now 😂😂😂. But I think I love the jumpsuit, the cutout, and the fringe. It’s a safe look
Rudolph: For a 23-year-old she looks fifty…Too much is going on here. Next time when in doubt wear your Roses uniform.
Yaw: She could pass for a mother. I promise you. I almost thought that was my mum but Honorable is bigger. Well, she’s a parliamentarian that’s a big position to have and it should come with a big body.
Rudolph: The face!!!!😱😱😱😱 I just died she looks so nice but only the face though.The dress is a bit much. I hate the puff…I wish it had a silhouette
Yaw: 哈哈哈 *Laughs in Chinese* because I just can’t. Zynell wants to win best-dressed celebrity on the red carpet at all cost. Babes calm down. I see so much I’m competing with Nana Akua Addo in this dress. Stop competing and be yourself. She looks caged in that dress
Akumaa Mama Zimbi
Rudolph: For someone whose job is to talk about sex positions we don’t expect much.
Yaw: Hater!!!! The Duku realness though. But madam you don’t look red carpet ready. M3daaaaase
Rudolph: When I saw it from afar I was like wow but the tailoring isn’t the best. I sympathise with her for being ruined by her tailor.
Yaw: I love the belle sleeves aside that I’m not a fan of the dress. Makeup is appropriate but those shoes look like horse hooves.
Rudolph: Train totally unneeded
Yaw: I don’t get why a jumpsuit should have a train. That’s backwards behaviour and it got to stop. I love the floral embroidery in the outfit nevertheless. It’s so Gucci.
Rudolph: The suit is quite ok…but I hate the trousers especially the fit
Yaw: He looks like a pallbearer in that suit. How in God’s name does someone manage to make a black suit look this ugly?? I don’t like the velvet jacket or the colourful bow-tie. Fiifi Coleman please find a wayside tailor and alter the trousers.
Rudolph: hell no…Abrantie this won’t help your brand
Yaw: Is that a denim suit I see there?? It feels like Togo jeans. Everything is wrong with this look. He’s a men suits designer and he should know better but I guess he doesn’t.
Rudolph: Looks like Michy Bellino borrowed a dress from her white slave masters and brought it to a ball
Yaw: 😂😂😂😂. This outfit reminds me of Sherlock and the abominable bride. I love the hair but the vintage theme she wanted to go for didn’t work. Take the L and leave.
Rudolph: No I can’t understand this…
Yaw: Please do. Its Mzbel here and you know she’s gone through a lot this year. Allow her. Change has come and it’s taking her time to adjust 😂😂😂
Rudolph: No…Big no..At this pace Adina, your 5mins of fame will deplete even faster if you don’t fire that stylist
Yaw: 😂😂😍😂. Is that crochet-inspired Bantu knots?? There’s too much going on. It as if the designer wasn’t even sure what’s she was going for. Darling, it’s okay that you’re friends with the designer but you don’t have to always wear her outfits even if it looks hideous. Thank you
Rudolph: Aww!! Aww!! Why do people do this to themselves? Akofa paa I am shocked. Her face is beat for the gods but that dress
Yaw: I was in the foyer when she arrived and I just had my review there. Ugly dress, go home. She looks like Ursula in ‘The Little mermaid’. Only we the GIS children can relate to the book. 😂😂😂
Rudolph: Some dresses look Ghanaian sewn and this is one of the..Nice idea bad execution..I hate the lines
Yaw: Please Ghanaian designers are good Cc the guy who designed my suit. Maybe her tailor had a bad day or there was dumsor in her area. It doesn’t look well sewn but her smile is saving her
Rudolph: Indian Series Fanatic. It’s clear
Yaw: Classic case of the designer who can’t dress to save her life.
Rudolph: But Dzigbordi’s dress is just ugly…It looks at it was done at the first practical of a pre-voc class.
Yaw: 😂😂😂😂。 How do you manage to be this mean? Even to an Inspirational person like Dzigbordi. I didn’t like the dress or the colour. Honestly, the outfit is destroying her brand
Rudolph: I am tired of talking about her. I really do not have strength for this..I’m done today.
Yaw: Please that chiffon dress can pay your fees. But rags will always be rags no matter who wears them. Ladies the chiffon and the shimmer is getting too much. Her hair is a mess and I don’t even know if she’s some Arab dancer or Shakira
Rudolph: Oh my Gosh Draculara…….She looks bad especially the makeup…let’s not go to the dress
Yaw: You know Chantelle and her hubby can find you and beat you up or something right?? 😂😂. Don’t worry we have a lawyer but seriously three ugly outfits in a row?? Jesus needs to take the wheel
Yaw: I’m a nice person so I’ll pretend as if I didn’t see Nana Yaa’s hideous outfit. What’s with the cowries?? Is she Okomfo Anokye’s heiress??
Rudolph: It’s her brand. She’s African at heart. Lol *sprinkles holy water*
