IvoryNG red carpet: It was total black out at the Golden Globes

The highly anticipated Lagos premiere of Ocean’s 8 movie, a Hollywood movie starring Rihanna, Cate Blanchet, Sandra Bullock, Anna Hathaway etc,  finally happened last weekend at the IMAX cinemas Lekki. As expected, members of Lagos red carpet community didn’t disappoint as most adhered strictly to using Met Gala event look to guide their fashion choices, a nod to the film’s heist plot where an all-female crew attempt to steal precious jewels at New York City’s annual Met Gala. Guests were free to dress in their own interpretation of any of the past Met Gala themes over the past two decades. Creativity was at its best, from sequins, to gothic looks, to lace, as there was a cash reward of N250,000 attached to the best dressed and a cash reward of N500,000 to the designer of the best dressed. And so naturally, there was a colourful array of outfits on the red carpet created mostly by African designers. However, a winner is yet to be announced. The Lagos premiere was done in collaboration with Film One, a Nigerian film studio and Warner Brothers. The organizers said hosting the Ocean’s 8 Premiere in Lagos was not just about coming to see a movie, but also a celebration of women who excel in their fields.
