The first ever Y! Magazine Annual Best Dressed List – inspired by the iconic Vanity Fair list of same name- has hit the stands. This year, courtesy of the Y! fashion mavens (also known as the style editors), the magazine selected the top 10 hottest men and women to rock the trends scene throughout 2012.
“Certainly, some of these names will be controversial,” said Doyin Jaiyesimi, one of the team-members. “But , great fashion is all about breaking the rules! This is our Best Dressed List after three months of spirited conversation—and we’d like to think we chose people who have represented Nigerian fashion to the nth degree over the past year.”
These 10 gorgeous gents have rocked the red, yellow and blue carpets, influenced designers, driven trends and have become icons to reckon with in the world of fashion. They are Lynxx, D’banj, Mai Atafo, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Nateo C, Adebayo Oke-Lawal, Bez Idakula, Uti Nwachukwu, Wizkid and Dare Art-Alade.
And the 10 ladies who have stunned us throughout the year are Yvonne ‘Vixen’ Ekwere, Genevieve Nnaji, Eku Edewor, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Ugonna Omeruo, Tiwa Savage, Elohor Isiohor, Toke Makinwa, Linda Ikeji and Dolapo Oni.
