Style Icon – Michelle Dede

Michelle Dede – the Nigerian freelance television presenter and actress has always been my Style Icon. I have admired her style for as long as I have known her; I remember spotting her presenting Big Brother Nigeria many moons ago, and thinking she was (and still is) the definition of Stylish.

 

 

Michelle Dede always looks effortlessly chic. She makes dressing up look fun and easy, like it should be, and that is what I love most about her style. This Style Icon inspires my style goals, and I am not surprised she has such an impeccable style. As a graduate of fashion design and fashion merchandising, I can see where her love for fashion and style comes from.

 

 

In an interview with In Her Closet, Dede describes her style as Eclectic, and says her love for fashion became official while studying in London.

 

My sense of style is eclectic. I dress based on my mood each day, taking inspiration from broad and diverse sources. I’ve always been interested in fashion, as a kid and in my teens in high-school, I experimented mixing and matching my clothes, to the amusement of my parents and older siblings.

I studied fashion design & fashion merchandising in university, so I was surrounded by fashion as well as gravitated towards all things fashion related. London is the home of unique, edgy, unconventional fashion which I love.

 

I agree, I think London is one of the greatest fashion cities in the world!

 

She has shared some style tips.

Wear shoes you like, not what’s fashionable or what your friends think you should wear.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour, style is individual, so if you want to wear red shoes with a canary yellow outfit, do it!

 

I agree with her tips, style is individual.

Style Icon: Billie Faiers

The stunning Billie Faiers is a Style Icon. I have admired her style and that of her sister – Samantha Faiers, since their TOWIE days, and I still love their fashion sense. I love Billie’s chic fashion sense. She brings her style game on every time, and she hasn’t allowed her current baby bump slow her down at all.

I love going through her snaps on Instagram. I can literally spend the whole day doing that if life lets me. I can see myself wearing almost every piece I see her rocking. I think we have similar taste in fashion. I guess that is why you are reading this post.

But now seriously, it should come as no surprise that Billie Faiers is a style icon. This woman is a confirmed fashion lover with the successful family’s fashion boutique business, her clothing range and her many stylish outfit, she is style goals!

I do miss seeing her on TOWIE. Her style was one of the reasons why I was so into TOWIE. She looks so good in everything!

I wish I could be a fly on the wall of Billie Faiers’ wardrobe, just so I can have a look at her entire collection. She is always rocking some really stylish pieces, and she makes every piece look so cool.

I also like the fact that she mixes regular high street pieces with more expensive designer pieces, and she nails it every time.

Here are some of her style dos and don’ts

Well, I think it’s important for everyone to have their own individual style and look but, most importantly, they should dress for their shape. It’s really important to wear what suits your figure. Don’t wear things that might not be flattering just because they’re fashionable or on trend.

 

I agree with this style tip. Dress for your figure and not trend.

The Style Icon – Michelle Obama

As the Obamas get ready to vacate the White House, one thing I am definitely going to miss about them is Michelle Obama’s amazing sense of style. That woman knows how to make anything look FAB! I am yet to see her photographed wearing a piece that doesn’t look great on her. She is the definition of Elegant Style and she knows it!

Michelle Obama’s legacy of style can never be forgotten so Mrs Trump better bring her style game with her. Mrs Obama inspired generations of women like me every time she stepped out. Her support of American fashion and the up-and-coming American designers was like a breath of fresh air. She supported the likes of Jason Wu, Narciso Rodriguez, Tracy Reese, Rachel Roy, and Thakoon over the larger fashion houses like Carolina Herrera, Alexander Wang, or Ralph Lauren.

I must confess I didn’t take to her fashion sense at first. I found it a little too boring but the more I paid attention to her style, the more I got it. She is definitely a fashion lover and she knows her stuff. I love the fact she looks effortlessly chic and comfortable in whatever she wears. She is Style Goals right here.

Michelle Obama also connected fashion to the broader popular culture –

“Fashion is really about passion and creativity, just like music or dance or poetry,” Obama said during her welcome to students. “For so many people across the country, it is a calling; it is a career. It’s the way they feed their families.”

The fashion industry will never forget Michelle Obama. She was and still is a fashion force to reckon with, and she knows it. I hope she continues to look as stylish and as fly as ever.
