Happy first of December everyone!!!!! It’s been a fantastic year so far. We’re kicking off the last month of the year with a new monthly feature – Style Star. This feature teaches you exactly how to dress like your favourite celebrity and how to understand the dynamics of each outfit.
This December we’re crushing over Studio 53’s star presenter, Eku Edewor. Eku’s style is very versatile, effortless and minimalistic. She has never been one to lean towards a particular trend and stick with it. You just never know what outfit she would show up in and that’s the fun part. Predictable style often gets monotonous and somewhat boring, but with Eku it’s a long flowy rich maxi today and starch white flared pants with an oversized purse the next.
Look 1: EKU IS A TURBAN PRINCESS
To copy this look, stick to a hounds tooth shift mini and monochrome heels. Include the green turban or any other colour only if you feel daring enough.
Look 2: EKU IN BLACK SOIREE
Eku shines in this black peek a boo slit dress from Bridget Awosika. The key to allowing such a risqué dress full accentuate your frame is to go easy on the jewellery.
STYLING TIP: Add instant personality to your black gown by styling your outfit with red strappy heels. It gives such a classic and demure look some zing.
Look 3: EKU IS CASUAL CHIC
As a die hard fan of casual outfits, this has to be one of my top picks. Very few people can look casual and glamorous at the same time. In times like these where we glorify skinny jeans, its refreshing to have her turn up in white flared jeans.
STYLING TIP: If you are very curvy, steer clear of white jeans. Rather use dark jeans to create your own casual glam look like Eku’s!
Look 4: EKU IS LOVELY IN GRECIAN
The Grecian trend is easy to wear. Anyone can look stylish in a floor length Grecian gown.
STYLING TIP: Give your own Grecian gown more oomph by using a statement piece of jewellery.
EKU’S KEY OUTFIT AMPLIFIERS
Eku always adds extra height to her outfit with a good pair of chunk heels. Heels play a vital role in transforming an outfit. If you’re not used to strutting around in heels, start of with a pair of kitten heels and graduate to more dramatic inches when your feel ready.
2. RUBY LIPS
Ruby lips are the lazy girl’s guide to instant beauty glam. All you need is a bit of foundation, line lips and fill in with red lipstick.
MAC’s Ruby woo is perfect for any skintone.
3. GLOSSY HAIR
Never underestimate the effect of glossy and well groomed hair. It only takes 10 secounds to add some balm and oil spray before you step out.
