Okay, we get it Lupita, you are a red carpet goddess.

If you know anything about the Cannes film festival, apart from the movies, it’s all about the fashion.

Yesterday, 12 Years a Slave Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o was present at theCalvin Klein Collection party celebrating Women in Film at the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival.

Princess Lupita bounced back in style in a strapless shimmery blue dress with a stylish cut-out.

She accessorized with diamond stud earrings by Vita Fede, a black clutch and a pair of silver ankle strap heels. Her famous feature – the ever changing hairstyle, was styled up.

Nigerian Designer Emmy Collins has unveiled his latest collection – “Timeless“.

We haven’t seen a collection from him in a while but at his Style Weekend event in Lagos, the brand showcased its Spring/Summer 2014 collection to its attending audience. The collection is filled with staple pieces including shirts with asymmetrical cuts and gingham prints, polka dotted ties and other separates.

According to Emmy, “Whenever I venture into designing any garment, what stays paramount in my mind besides quality, cut, fabric and originality/innovation of the design is that purchasing a fashion item is and should be an investment that should stand the test of time”. He went on to say, “I wouldn’t design a garment that a client would invest a king’s ransom on and then discard only a few months after simply because it has gone out of trend”.

Well, we like the collection and are definitely in support of buying pieces that transcend trends.

Check out the collection.

Presenting the new Spring/Summer 2014 collection from eponymous Nigerian design label – Tai Adeboyeku.

The collection is hitting all the right fashion notes for the classy and edgy fashionista. Featuring clean cut silhouettes on A-line dresses, streamlined & tailored trousers, asymmetrical cut outs, dresses with embroidered detail and tulle fabric skirts, the pieces are represent the formal side of Spring.

According to the designer, the collection was inspired by the romantic period. “A woman should feel innocent but also be romantic. I am a huge fan of Jane Austen novels and I always wanted my work to reflect on the novels I’ve read, especially Pride and Prejudice.

The picture of the movies inspired me with a color palette for this spring 2014 collection – soft, calm and romantic. Since I am of Nigerian decent, I wanted to incorporate the fabric of my heritage in this collection. Each piece has it’s own story. The looks that have a victorian embroidered detail, symbolize the curves of a modern woman and how it makes the woman feel, which is very powerful but yet innocent and romantic.

Overall I can call this spring 2014 collection a romantic novel and each look is its own chapter”.

Well said Tai. Check out the collection
