So, let’s get into the details.

Camera shutters sounded like continuous applause as celebrities, influencers, and tastemakers hit the red carpet. Those spotted slaying at the event included Osas Ighodaro, Toke Makinwa, Chioma Ikokwu, and more.

Osas Ighodaro slayed the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards in a black sculpted 3-D gown.

One fashion favorite was Miss Black USA 2010 Osas Ighodaro. Oozing glamour, style, and sophistication, the actress wore a futuristic, structured black gown by bespoke designer Veekee James. 

The garment’s details were everything with its 3-D black sculpted shoulders, fitted bodice, trumpet bottom, and nude underlay that celebrated Osas’ complexion. The gown’s unique black lines traced the beauty’s entire body, highlighting her fabulous figure.


“I wanted to showcase art on her body,” Veekee said when describing Osas’ dress on Instagram. The designer, known for her innovative and feminine designs, continued, saying that the dress was custom-made to showcase a woman’s beauty.

Every angle of the former pageant queen’s dress exuded art, and we couldn’t get enough. Hear more from the designer about the gown below.
