So I missed the 2014 Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards which took place in Lagos. I have not been able to get ahold of any official pictures yet but fortunately my Instagram feed never fails! Here are a few of the celebrity looks that have been covered. Who are your favourites? I see a lot of good ones! Let’s get into this:

Hot or Not: Toke Makinwa’s Herve Leger Blue Gauze Bandage Dress & River Island Shoes

On air personality and self-proclaimed chatter box, Toke Makinwa posted a few pics on her Instagram of herself in this sexy blue bandage dress. I’ve seen a few comments about where to get this dress.

The Herve Leger Legerity Blue Gauze Bandage Evening Dress bears an aztec print design and Toke played matchy matchy (and won!) and accessorized with a pair of sold out £65 River Island Elizabeth Metal Sling Back Court blue heels. They court shoes were only £29 in the sale!
