Nollywood, in general, has come a long way. Back in 2010 movies were recorded in cassettes, for example, the now married or divorced celebs were pretty single ladies and when you think of the red carpet, makeup looks were not as flawless as it is in 2017, not to talk about the outfits. Well, it’s no doubt we become a bit more mature as time goes by and our style evolves along with it, so, to say the least, the red carpet has undeniably undergone a serious transformation over the years. From Ini Edo, Omotola Jalade, Rita Dominic, Genevieve Nnaji, and a few others, we’re looking back at the celebrity red carpet looks in honor of #throwbackthursday.
Cornrows, slouchy maxi gown, and a subtle makeup — Stephanie Okereke oozed some cool-girl vibes at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.
Matching the eyeshadow to a dress is a major beauty mistake today. But of course, Ibinabo Fiberesima was misguided when she made an appearance at the 2010 Sound City Music Awards wearing a green sequined gown with a matching eyeshadow.
Side-swept bangs were one of the hottest hair trends at that time and Beverly Naya was one of them who embraced it. She wore a mini dress with leopard prints heel sandals to ‘Anchor Baby’ movie premiere.
We can always count on Genevieve Nnaji when it comes to chic outfit choices — just look at her at the Ije movie premiere.
Of course, Ini Edo today’s red carpet is incomparable to her 2010 appearances but she was able to make her ‘Anchor Baby Premiere’ one of the most buzzed-about looks at the time.
She was pretty much young in 2010 likewise her style. We’re talking about Mocheddah who sauntered into the ‘FAB Magazine’s Night out’ event in some kind of “doing the most” prints and red look.
Though she has gained hefty weight as of today, Omotola was the belle of the ball at the premiere of Ije in Lagos.
Rita Dominic’s style is inneth. At the ‘FAB Magazine’s Night out,’ she was killing it in a short pantsuit and black accouterments.
Annie Idibia and Tonto Dikeh
Proving they were as hot as fire, Annie Idibia and Tonto Dikeh opted for a dramatic look at ‘Memories Of The Heart’ premiere, wearing a clingy dress with a bunch of bead necklace which provided an extravagant decoration to their neck. Meanwhile, it’s a look none of them would never be caught in on today’s red carpet.
There’s so much to talk about here but Uche Jombo was chic in her own right wearing a little white dress, ’90s hair, hoop earrings and some perilous makeup.
