It’s crystal clear that when it comes to red carpet fashion, many Kenyan celebrities miss the mark and Kenya is far behind compare to other developing African countries.
Perhaps due to not investing in a personal stylist. However, Kenyan fashion blogger and influencer, Silvia Njoki has mastered the art of red carpet fashion.
Earlier this year, Silvia was one of the few Kenyans who managed to grace the ever so prestigious luxe event, The Cannes Film Festival and she stood out in an electric blue figure hugging long dress and accessorized with a long Maasai beaded accessory as her stand out statement piece and the look was head-spinning, to say the least.
And now, once again, Silvia has proved that her style is unrivaled after stealing the show at the 3rd edition of the Glitz Style Awards held in Accra, Ghana on Saturday, 19th August.
The highly successful Ghanaian event is all about celebrating individuals setting trends and defying odds with their style; it also aims at celebrating the growing fashion industry in Ghana and the African continent.
Our girl Silvia stood out in two very interesting looks. For the pre-party whose theme was old school glamour, she went for a layered checkered maxi skirt, paired with a bolero top. We love how she went for a fro look and kept the makeup simple and accessorized less, seeing as the bottom was already quite busy.
The main event look was EVERYTHING.
A sheer embellished gown that screamed, “red carpet ready” – the tail was just long enough to steal the show and this time round, she went for an updo. Everything about this look was polished, sophisticated, very 2017, stylish and elegant.
Note how the makeup was just enough? Ladies, remember, rule of thumb; less is always more.
Kenyan female celebrities need to borrow a leaf from her next time they are attending red carpet events.
