Awele Elumelu attended the United Bank of Africa CEO Awards spotting the same dress that made controversial rounds (especially on the grounds of major slayage and if the award winning act could afford to spend that much on a dress she’ll never wear again) on Yemi Alade at the 2016 Black Entertainment Television Awards from the design house of Lebanese couture designer Zuhair Murad.
Although she was definitely less dramatic than Mama Africa, Awele didn’t deliver any less on the floral floor length garment believed to retail for N2.5M. She styled the ensemble with a very soft appeal, keeping her beauty choices minimal and pairing the garment with a fushia pink Bottega Veneta box knot satin clutch worth N600,000.
We can say she did Zuhair justice but we leave it to our readers to play style jury.
