Nigerian sensation Tems has defended her view-obstructing dress at the 2023 Oscars and given us some behind-the-scenes insight into her fashion choice.
While Hollywood’s finest graced the event with stunning fashion pieces, Tems donned a custom white sculptural gown complete with a large headpiece that stirred some controversy on social media.
However, in a pre-Oscars interview with Harper’s Bazzar, the Grammy award winner explained that she decided to “go all out” and “make the most” of her first Oscars appearance.
“The dress is also my way of celebrating my work and the people around me, celebrating my country, and celebrating the people that are rooting for me. This dress says ‘Yes, yes, I am here!’,” the singer said.
