As she would say on her blog, “Linda, is that you?!”
There are no words for how totally, exceedingly, abundantly H to the O to the T Ms Linda Ikeji, blogger and media darling looks in the new Cover of StyleMania magazine – and not least because she is wrapped up in our favourite material – newsprint.
Surely, you agree?
See some of the photos below!
The cover clothes are all from Ituen Bassey, hair is by Ugo Igbokwe, make-up is by Bayo Haastrup, styling by Dimeji Alara and the photography, of course, is by the magazine’s publisher, Kelechi Amadi-Obi.
“Our very first twin cover features a young woman who needs little or no introduction- Linda Ikeji. An exclusive interview uncovers her rigorous
journey to stardom and her immense relevance in Nigeria today,” the editors said.
Also featured in this edition are profiles of a few remarkable youngpeople in diverse endeavors. The following made the list- Tunde Aladese(Head Writer, Tinsel), Ehizogie Okoeguale (Winner MTV Base VJ Search),Shalom Obi (Budding Supermodel), Dj Obi (Official Dj, Syndik8 records),Akanimoh Umoh (Sensational Artist), Anniette James Ekiko (AJE Filmworks)and Aderonke Adebanjo (On Air Personality, Smooth FM).Our take on fashion in this edition centers on muted colours with asporty feel. Another remarkable perspective is our tribute to literaryicon, Chinua Achebe in form of a fashion editorial.
