These are the three designers Adesua Etomi wore for the #BAAD2017 finale


Someone just pinched us. Our headline should have read: “These are the three designers Adesua Wellington wore for the #BAAD2017 finale”. Not to worry, we’ll get used to the new name, with time.

It’s the morning after #BAAD2017 (we believe this hashtag needs no introduction, at this point) but the thrill remains intact, especially for everyone who had the pleasure of experiencing the wedding ceremony through Instagram’s eyes.

Bride, Adesua Etomi’s impressive lineup of outfits at the traditional wedding ceremony last Sunday served as a precursor for the white wedding. Surely a bride who changed outfits four times and made bold statements each time would have a bigger surprise up her sleeve for the final lap of her wedding.

Designer, Mai Atafo was the official clothier for the wedding. He dressed the groom, his men, the bridesmaids and yes, the bride.

Adesua’s white wedding gown was a form fitting, off-shoulder lace dress with a gorgeous train that glistened even in sunlight.

For her first outing at the reception, Adesua was radiant in a black, long-sleeved, heavily embroidered number with a straight skirt and layered peplum that sat with perfection just on the back of the dress. The dress made by Andrea Iyamah was the daring one that allowed Adesua show off just a tiny bit of sultry. For most, this was the winning look and we couldn’t agree more.

Mrs Adesua Wellington wrapped up the night in the most shimmery and fringe-ry look we’ve seen in a while. The dress made by Tope FnR shone without caution thanks to the diamonds that sat on the neck and most of its top area.

All three looks were nothing short of beautiful and Adesua Etomi via this wedding just re-registered her presence on the list of stylish Nigerian celebrities, for those who doubted her.
