gxqnk3b9j3dgbofqxeny57738412be173Forget the electrifying opening performance by Beyonce at the BET Awards that she just could not miss even as she ran late for her flight to London. Let’s focus on Nigerian diva, Yemi Alade. Although Yemi Alade lost out to South Africa’s Black coffee for the “Best International Act: African Category”, she could not be step on that red carpet looking anything but glam.

She made temperatures rise in a bold fashion statement wearing a piece from celebrated designer Zuhair Murad’s 2016 Resort Collection which reportedly cost a staggering sum Sh 900,000. The celebrated designer is known to achieve modernity in his designs through surprising contrasts including art stripes, zigzags, embroideries and colourful floral motifs and appliques. This collection has been worn by celebrities like Beyonce, Taylor swift, Michelle Obama and Jennifer Lopez.

Yemi Alade who released her praised jewelry collection last year, will also be unveiling her fashion label “House of Tangerine (H.O.T)”, at the 2016 African Fashion Week Nigeria and London.
