The whole internet was thrown into a frenzy on Sunday as Nollywood elite and fashion influencers attended the inaugural edition of The Film Gala in grand style.
Themed “Married to the Arts”, the event was organized by Filmhouse in partnership with Moët and Chandon to celebrate groundbreaking achievements in the film industry.
For an event without any preceding red carpet inspiration, dressing for the occasion was a feat in itself but our favourite style stars did it with the grace and cinematic allure while some just went for pretty floral glamour.
From Toni Tones‘ custom Lanre DaSilva Ajayi dresses to Shaffy Bello‘s floral number, see who stole the sartorial show at the Film Gala 2019.
Osas Ighodaro-Ajibade and Toni Tones
As the hosts for the evening, Toni Tones and Osas Ighodaro-Ajibade knew they had to make appearances in winning looks! For their first looks, they both wore gorgeous works of art by Lanre DaSilva Ajayi.
Osas stepped out in a second equally glamorous look; a beaded, silver thigh-high slit dress with a detachable train as designed by Toju Foyeh.
Shaffy Bello took us by surprise in a floral midi dress designed by STITCHES by Chioma. The veteran actress is known for her floor-length gowns at red carpet events but the sweetheart pink dress with petala-shaped ruffles topped with a statement flower-headpiece, was a welcome turn of events.
The top blogger stepped on the red carpet very much on-theme giving us Chadwick Boseman at the Met Gala 2018 vibes. He wore religious-inspired gold embellishments on a cape shaped tuxedo set from Rogue Ng with black shoes from Jésù Ségun London.
Sharon ooja Egwurube
The cut, fit and fabric pairing of Sharon Ooja’s look was literally a marriage of art. She wore a Vintage Ruffle Trish O. Couture dress that flowed down flawlessly into a sea of butter yellow ruffles.
For one of her favourite stars to dress, Fablane by Derin gave a modern take for the theme of the night using traditional Aso Oke fabric with minimal hand beading.
We love a stop and stare floor-length look on the red carpet, and Seyitan looked ravishing in a curve-hugging pink Jane Michael number that was as timeless as it is was fitting for the occasion.
Bisola’s Somo by Somo dress deserved an award! The talented actress and singer served high-fashion realness in the burgundy number that was completed with a matching choker.
Michelle looked pretty in a sequinned feathered dress from Pmluxury. The effortless look featured a stunning slit, facebeat and hair well packed into a bun.
The actor kept things simple and suave for the evening wearing a striking Michael Odyssey suit set. He paired the Damask suit with a black turtleneck – Parisian style!
Taje came in a winning black number no one could ignore. The figure hugging floor-length dress came with bold exaggerated ruffles on the shoulders -ps: she actually designed the look herself! Her cropped hairstyle and pink purse were perfect accessories for the ensemble.
