Beautiful Nigerian actress cum producer, Genevieve Nnaji, turned heads at the Marrakech Film Festival in Morocco appearing at the event in a stunning off-badge hybrid robe that stood out despite its modest wide sleeves and knee-length features.
Genevieve was at the film festival in the company of Nollywood comic actor, Nkem Owoh, for the Northern African premiere of the Netflix-acquired film ‘Lion Heart’, which she produced.
But despite ‘Lion Heart’ making a fine cinema impression- even earning a standing ovation from the auditorium, it was in fact Ms. Nnaji who brought the greatest eye candy entertainment, slaying in the nouveau-trendy attire and awing the host country with her blend of contemporary costuming trends and remarkable awareness of Northern Africa fashion culture.
And now it’s been revealed that the actual A-Line cotton shirt-dress worn by the Nigerian screen royalty was styled by Victoria Beckham. Yep. The same one they call Posh Spice from 90’s Pop Girl Group Spice Girls, mother of husband David Beckham’s four children and the successful entrepreneur who introduced the world to Victoria Secret.
So the secret was Victoria again, but all the gossip was about Genevieve who made sure that she continued to fly high the flag of Nigerian fashion this year. It was the Super Eagles in June, the Agbada viral challenge in September and the elegant Ms Nnaji in December. Lagos International Airport might be crap but Naija fashion still flashes the world.
