Bubu Ogisi rocked a red chainmail ensemble, complete with her signature hat in red, while Eloghosa Osunde sported a black fringe dress with a corseted bodice and a black sheer veil. Although Ashley couldn’t attend the event in person, she blessed us with images of her in a beige knit minidress and her signature makeup.
This Victoria’s Secret event is a testament to the creativity and ingenuity of Nigerian women in a broad magnitude in fashion.
