THEN & NOW

Hey Everyone!!!
How was your weekend? I had an absolutely fab weekend filled with lots and lots of shopping!
My friend, Wana and I went shopping on saturday and it was so much fun! I am NEVER going shopping with her again tho because she is such an enabler! She kept on encouraging me to buy more, more and even more...
Now I am not feeling well at all :( but I had to blog....see the dedication!
Before I go ahead, you have got to check out the hottest new blog, I know all of y'all will love it. Its called Wedding Vogue and its by 2 of Nigeria's top wedding planners, Omolara Akinosho[Chief Executive of Just Weddings] and Gbemisola Adenekan [Chief Executive of Omega Events] . I dont have to tell u...make sure u check on it!
Anyways, lets gets straight to the koko lol
So I was looking through million and one images in my bellanaija folder and saw so many photos of Nigerian celebs. One thing that struck me was how much they have evolved!
Decided to take a walk down memory lane and see them - THEN & NOW
Enjoy

Agbani Darego
This was Agbani pre-winning Miss World and here is Agbani almost a decade later. Looking fabulous and much more sophisticated.


Omotola
No words are needed really. Lets just say Omotola has blossomed.


RMD
Yeah the headline has receded and the hair has greyed but RMD still looks really foxy lol


Nike Oshinowo
No doubt Nike has always been really pretty but its clear that with the right hair and makeup, Nike has evolved from pretty to very stunning!


Genevieve Nnaji
From fresh-faced to fabulous!
Her style - from her hair to her makeup to her shoes....totally upgraded!


Oluchi
From innocent schoolgirl to sexy mama....nuff said!


That's it for today!
Let us know what u think.....Upgrade or Downgrade?
I'll be back tomorrow and hopefully I'll have those event pics up this week. Fingers crossed!

MUAH

Idemili said...

Agbani's 'upgrade' scares me a bit.

Idemili said...

Zena said...

Bobby said...

Money talks...

yankeenaijachick said...

Interesting post Bella, l must say Agbani looks so weak. She looked more pretty before and Omotola stands out anyday anytime. Let's not forget village Oluchi who is now repping Naija girls to the fullest even dating an Italian dude. Oluchi rocks.

logosian said...

They all look more stylish now. My winner pic is Genevieve, total class, and so natural with it.

joicee said...

Arewa said...

One word to describe Omotol and Oluchi...DAMN!!...lol Money good oh..

talented said...

PEPSKI said...

WHAT HAPPENED TO AGBANI'S BOOBS?????

Confessions of a moody crab said...

Wow @ Omotola...lol!! That is some serious upgrade.

Wassup with the 'surprise' eyebrows...lol

olaide said...

I noticed 2 things
1.Omotola had a good hair day ( thank God)
2.Agbani lost it all (her innocence and beauty )

YankeeNaija said...

What do all these lovely people have in common? MONEY!!!! Money really does make a difference in how one looks. Without money, you can't dress well. Without money, you can't get you hair done well, unless you have some very talented friend who can hook you up with a great weave or braids. Yes, money is good. I concur. Everyone upgraded well, now if we can only get RMD a membership in Hairclub for Men...

Anonymous said...

but didn't Nike Osinowo always have money?
....i'm just sayin :)

brookish said...

cally-waffybabe said...

They all look lovely. It just shows how they have evolved from young, budding beauties into mature even more beautiful women.

Toni Payne said...

thats hot bella, just weddings prices look reasonable enough. Took a look at their full wedding package. good for people like me that will most likely fly in days before. Im wondering though how you keep the number of guests under 1k in naija, gosh 1200 people sounds like my side alone. :(

didi said...

Agbani looked better before

wienna said...

loooool....Omo t looked like a witch in her b4 pic. She looks hotter now, i must say. Genny has maintained her look over d years sha.

Anonymous said...

TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY.... said...

Oh My Goodness y'all, do u think omotola had a facelift?

TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY.... said...
