The Wedding Party 1 released December 2016, is the highest grossing Nollywood movie so far and when it was revealed that a sequel was in the works, the excitement went sky high. People were so excited to see the movie, tickets to the world premiere sold out four weeks ahead of the event.

Themed “Arabian Nights”, guests were informed to dress up in their best Arabian outfits for the premiere, to reflect the movie location, Dubai. Whilst there were lots of Indian looking, over the top outfits at the event Sunday night, there were a few that hit the mark. We have curated some of the best outfits that were either theme compliant  or looked good enough to make the list.

Ayo and Mabel Makun looked good and were even more powerful together as an Arabian couple
Ufuoma McDermott gave us low-key princess Jasmine vibes in this gold and fuchsia ensemble
Would have been a sad day if a main character in the movie failed but Banky W spared us that sadness by following the theme and looking good too!
If we were giving an award for best dressed male, Frank Donga would be in the running, looking like a Sheik… done and done!
Ireti Doyle aka Mrs Onwuka looked Arabian chic!
You didn’t think the fashion slayer, Richard Mofe Damijo aka mr Onwuka aka father of the groom, will not be on this list did you?
Lead actress in the wedding party, Adesua Etomi in a Cleopatra inspired look… dress, check! makeup, check! accessories, check!!
Life Coach, Lanre Olusola stayed with the theme but kept it simple and elegant
Linda Ejiofor was all shades of Arabian gorgeousness!
When you have a fashion designer for a daughter, you are well assured of slaying the red carpet! Sola Sobowale aka Iya Dunni sure looked like a rich Arabian woman…
Not 100% theme compliant but Tiwa Savage gave Arabian princess vibes in this dress by Lanre Da Silva Ajayi. Accessories on point as well!
Adeolu Adefarsin looking like a very innocent Genie

So, is it easier to dress Arabian for men than women? Or did the ladies who didn’t make it to this list just go over board with their outfits and accessories?  The Wedding Party 2 will be in cinemas nationwide from the 15th of December, we are excited to see what records the sequel will create or break.

  1. Nice outfits all around. I did feel like most were over the top though… Best dressed for me was Linda Ejiofor, she looked effortlessly chic. The kaftan sold her on the theme without looking over done. Very stylist and elegant. Adesua worked it well too… My two favorites without a doubt and I hear they are besties. How apt!
