Photos: Best Looks at the 2014 #AMVCA Awards – Rita Dominic, Osas Ighodaro, Joke Silva & More!

I have had the privilege for over two decades now to sift through thousands of photos mostly for fashion editorial and modeling purposes. When I look at pictures, I am looking not just at the fashion but the body language, most especially the face. For the 2014 #AMVCA Awards, here are my best looks/best dressed people having checked out those on and off the red carpet as well. Photos courtesy Ameyaw Debrah, who by the way is giving African entertainment digital publishers and bloggers a run for their money.

Take a look and tell me if you agree with my choices. Who would you have added on the list or removed?


The host team nailed it all evening.

Desmond Elliot brought his style A-game to the awards showAMVCA Awards 9 Desmond Elliot

Waje’s look was borderline. This shot however was flattering enough to make it on my list. I prefer for women to be a little leaner if I will style them in a tux or see them in one. She managed to pull this off.

Superb and really cool top by DavidoAMVCA Awards 10 Davido

Funke Akindele’s look works here. It is simple yet glamorous enough for the event.AMVCA Awards 11 Funke Akindele

Here was more biased than anything else. I love these and they do look sharp.AMVCA Awards 11 Osita and Aki

Flavor looks so good. I like the way he now spots his hair.AMVCA Awards 13 Flavor

The dress here is flattering. I would have love to upgrade the hair and give her stronger accessories. AMVCA Awards 14

Eku’s look is rather simple but classic. She played safe but it did not hurt her. Majid also held his own.AMVCA Awards 15 Majid Michel and Eku Edewor

Ebuka was probably one of the best dressed men of the night. It doesn’t get any dapper than this.AMVCA Awards 16

It is always interesting to see what Uti wears and how he can pull off looks that would seem absurd on others.

I really like this look. It is such a simple design yet it shows off her nicely toned arms and lean, beautiful shape.AMVCA Awards 22

The hair on Denrele is a problem but the costume was too interesting to pass up. AMVCA Awards 28
