People misuse the tag- icon, especially "style icon" so much! And that's because it's a word that seem to come so easy to them!
So you see someone who has only just "begun" to know and enjoy life or just started to express and explore their understanding of style, be tagged a style icon!
The truth is that to become an icon of anything or at anything, it takes longevity, dexterity, experience, in fact unquestionable knowledge.
You have to have been ruling in that particular game, for a good length of time and have become a sort of authority at the game too, one whose opinion becomes like a law, a somewhat regulator kind of, one whose rules and regulations others follow, most often religiously too.
Top Nigerian OAP, vlogger, writer and fashionista, Omotoke Makinwa is not a fashion icon at all, at least not yet, but she's most definitely on her way and on the path strutting confidently and has begun the journey towards becoming one in the years to come. Truth be told also, she's no "flash in the pan" either.
Here in the above pictures, the in your face celebrity, dazzles in the very sexy "guipure navy cape dress by Self Portrait" at £300 Pound that's ₦140000 plus" she wore to grace Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde's #omotola4point0 party, which held at the Landmark Event Centre, VI extension, Lagos on Sunday, February 11, 2018.
Her slicked down hair with the centre parting really did her face well. She was a sexy bombshell, showing off the right amount of cleavage, at least not bothering at all on the obscene. Her pair of "Azzedine Alaia Bombe studded suede sandals" $1290- (₦460000 plus) were delicately worn to garnish the whole outfit, which accentuated her colour and she finished off the whole ensemble by carrying the dainty "Gabriela Hearst Demi bag satin with custom made rose gold hardware". The bag is not one that's just readily available for purchase just like that, you have to be on a "waiting list". Leather version of the GH bag was sold on Net-a-porter for $1995 that's about (₦700000 plus), The Satin is also the same amount and it's available a few weeks after joining the mailing list and can be shipped internationally with an additional $100. It also comes in snake too.
So at least on that night alone, not counting the cost of Toke's ring, bangle or wrist watch or hair or the Victoria's Secret or Agent Provocateur she might have been wearing, she was at least ₦1.3 million plus worth in her outfit-dress and accessories-sandals and bag alone! The beauty of it all is that all the brands are quirky stand out ones. Self Portrait is found in Selfridges, Harrods, Neiman Marcus etc and is a brand that was launched by an alumnus of the famous Central St. Martins in 2013 named Han Chong, a Malaysian designer .
