2. Yvonne Nelson

Yvonne Nelson has always been Ghana’s sweet heart. But she took things up a notch and became a sex symbol this year when she introduced her new svelte and banging bod to the world…and also when Iyanya claimed he had her medicine… Anywho, everyone was taken with Yvonne Nelson this year. With so many girls wanting to be like her and thousands of guys wanting her, Yvonne Nelson has been a force to reckon with. Her fashion game also took a turn for the best. Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Zara and Prada are amongst some of her wardrobe favourites. She’s the queen of mixing high fashion and street fashion. She’s also the queen of the famous Instagram #seflie. But hey, she’s looking good, we ain’t complaining. Everyone loves a fashionista who can look good in both traditional and formal wear. And Yvonne does just that. Yvonne also bagged herself a Best Actress award this year and proved that she’s not just your average beauty. She’s got brains and talent to back that. Check out a slew of her looks below.

3. Eku Edewor

Eku is a Nigerian model, actress and glam princess of TV. The fact that her style was one of the first things I ever featured when I just created this blog speaks volumes. Eku Edewor is and has always been slaying. And this year, like every other year, she only gets better. With her runway model looks, it’s no surprise that Eku looks great in whatever she wears. She’s definitely high fashion and classy in my book. Alongside her popular show on MNET Africa, Studio 53 Extra, she also had a few cameo and movie roles this year which cemented her as a force to reckon with. Here are few of Eku’s most fashionable moments.

4. Genevieve Nnaji

The woman after my very own heart. Queen Mother of effortless flawlessness. The original source from which River Charisma flows…LOL. I am known to go over the top every now and then. But do you blame me? Like a rare gem, Genevieve Nnaji has made herself scarce this year especially.Treating her 83,000 Instagram followers to a healthy dose of her style and funny reposts, she’s only been seen when it’s necessary. And when she does come out of her hiding, she makes her appearance worth the wait. This Nigerian screen goddess has escalated into an international superstar and rightly so. Her style has been spotless this year. Mixing fun pieces with expensive accessories is what she does best. She’s on another level and she knows it. She is one of the prestigious owners of the much coveted limited edition Chanel Lego Bag . Enjoy her most fashionable flicks below:

5. Toke Makinwa

Omotoke Makinwa aka #MorningRose has been this year’s breakout star. She’s been nicknamed ‘MTN’ by several blog readers because she’s ‘everywhere you go.’ But if you’re an MTN who manages to look on point every time you step out, who am I to complain? Toke has been serving outfit after outfit. Plus her makeup team is doing a fantastic job. I need a few tips on contouring… Hehehe. Toke has also been making waves with her YouTube Vlog. She posts a new video every Wednesday where she usually dishes advices on love, money, friendship, men and sex. It’s pure hilarity. You should subscribe to Toke Moments asap! Amidst rumours that she and her boyfriend of 10 years, Maje Ayida, have ended their relationship, Toke stays repping. She even admitted to being paid to attend events.It pays to look good after all!

6. Tiwa Savage

Tiwatope Savage Balogun is a stunner! I had to get that out of the way first. A very refreshing addition to the music scene and our screens.The recording artist who just tied the knot with long time boyfriend, Tee Billz, is making waves. Being a brand ambassador for MTN Nigeria and Pepsi, Tiwa never disappoints with her appearances. One of my favourite Tiwa looks is her Mary Katranzou print skirt and blouse which she wore to her ‘Once Upon A Time’ album listening party. Simply gorge. Tiwa is a self-confessed high end shopaholic. So it’s no surprise she’s made this years most fashionably dressed women. Let’s review a few of her show-stopping looks:
