Toke Makinwa is undoubtedly one of the most fashionable women in the entertainment industry.
She’s known for her bold takes on fashion, lifestyle and the world at large. Her love for designer handbags and shoes led her to establish her own luxury line of goods including makeup, bags and scarves.
Toke does not miss any opportunity to look good, whether it’s for the red carpet, brunch with friends and a nice day at the beach. Here are five times Toke Makinwa gave us iconic looks we couldn’t stop talking about.
The Tutti-Frutti Fairy
For the Sugar Rush movie premiere, Toke Makinwa went in a candy floss coloured Haute Couture Tolu Bally Gown. It’s good to note that she starred in the movie so you know she dressed extra special. The theme of the premiere was ‘Candifornia’ and Toke has the gown custom made for the occasion. The floor-length gown was made with baby blue and soft pink silk and organza. The dress had a full skirt, which gave it a real candy floss look. She paired the look with a pink Jacquemus bag. She was styled by Dami Oke and makeup was done by the famous Anita Brows. Her hair was laid by Bernard Smiless.
Halloween Mistress of Evil
Halloween is not really celebrated in Nigeria, but there are a few costume parties here and there. For Halloween in 2019, Toke Makinwa decided to recreate Maleficent. Toke went all black in a custom Toju Foyeh gown, as per the character’s signature. The beaded dress was strapless, with a slit to high heaven, which showed off Toke’s luxurious skin. Makeup was executed by Anita Brows.
Cinderella Dressed In Blue
If there is one thing we love, it’s Toke Makinwa on the red carpet. For the premiere of ‘Love Is War’ movie, Toke gave us her version of Cinderella and we think we like hers better. With Dami Oke handling the styling, Toke wore a blue Tubo gown, matching the outfit with a crystal-coloured Louis Vuitton bag and Amina Muaddi shoes. Her hair was done by Benard Smiless and makeup by Anita Brows.
Owambe Is For Party
As much as Toke dazzles on the red carpet, she also dominates the traditional looks. Toke stepped out for a wedding in this black lace custom made gown by Zhena Woman. She looked so good, we’re sure the bride must have been jealous. The floor-length gown featured long tulle sleeves. Makeup was done by Anita Brows and the gele by Adebiyi Taiwo (Taiwo’s Touch).
Toke By The Beach
For her 34th birthday, Toke had a beach-themed photo shoot which had heads turning. One of the outfits was an Ankara beach suit from Sshhh Lingerie. The look was styled by Harvella Style, hair by Bernard Smiless and makeup by Anita Brows. She complimented the look with a golden head wrap and jewellery.
