In Her Closet – Episode 16 – Sultry Actress Adunni Ade

In a bid to keep you entertained, each episode of In Her Closet comes with another fashionista, people we love to see on TV or read about. This week I have sultry Actress and Model, Adunni Ade. The beautiful actress and mother of 2 is Half Nigerian and Half German. While she spent a part of her growing years in New York, she got into runway modeling and was on Tyra Banks’ America Next Top Model. Moving back to Nigeria, she went into acting and she’s most popular for her comedy skit – Date Gone Bad. She also starred in the recently released movie that hit the cinemas a few weeks ago It’s Her Day. She’s another shoe lover and that is evident on her instagram posts. I wasted no time sliding into her DM and she was kind enough to do me the honors. Enjoy the interview. E-INTERVIEW WITH ADUNNI ADE JAY: You have been a model in the USA and been on Americas Next Top Model, this would have greatly influenced your sense of style. What does style mean to you? ADUNNI: Style means a lot to me! It speaks volumes. It’s my way of expressing myself. JAY: Would you say there is still a gap to be filled in the fashion industry in Nigeria if you had to compare with fashion abroad? ADUNNI: No fashion scene is perfect, there is always room for improvement.  JAY: On a scale of 1-10, rate your love for shoes. ADUNNI: 10000000000 JAY: Approximately how many shoes can we find in your closet? ADUNNI: I  have over 120+ shoes JAY: Luxury shoes or high street brands, would you splurge or look for a lower priced option? ADUNNI: Darling, if...
Maison Valentino : More Than Just The RockStud Pumps?

Maison Valentino : More Than Just The RockStud Pumps?

I see some fashion pieces and i’m thinking, who put in so much love and commitment and thought to this? Lately, i’ve been feeling this type of way about the valentino rockstud pumps but apart from the pumps, I haven’t paid so much attention to the brand as a whole. The Maison Valentino footwear brand is exactly why I am here today. I visited the official site and some other luxury outlets and after what I saw, I knew I had to do a post. Naturally, I was interested in knowing the creative director of the brand. There had been Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli as creative directors since 2008 but with the exit of Maria, Pierpaolo became sole Creative Director. This duo created the signature Rockstud Pumps to celebrate 50years of the brand in fall 2010. “From the first days, the most important task on Valentino’s heritage has been to accomplish the perception, the idea and the essence of the Maison rather than reproposing pieces of its archive. It has been a creative process that took as a model the modus operandi of the Atelier of Couture. In other words, the human excellence portrayed in every single detail. From the fashion shows, to the collaborations, to the stores.” – Pierpaolo Piccioli , Creative Director I won’t say I was disappointed in the collection, but I was hoping to see more. The designs pretty much followed the same pattern with alterations here and there. However, the rockstud sling back pumps remain the Master Piece of the brand. The rockstud design now comes in the rolling rock stud which features the studs in antique silver/gold and...

Inspired By The Glamour of the 1920’s – Sergio Rossi’s Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Hello Shoe lovers, I’ve been under the weather for a few days now, coupled with a slight issue on the IT end, which has now been resolved (Thank God). But the love for the shoes hasn’t gone under, and i sure have missed sharing with you guys, but i’m here now with lots of juice. We’ve missed quite a lot and there’s so much to catch up on and share with you guys. Without much ado, i have been excited since i got wind of the release of the Pre-Fall collection from Sergio Rossi, especially after hearing of the recent sale of the brand. Below is the collection, inspired by the glamour of the 1920’s, he took inspiration from Tamara de  Lempicka (you all heard of the famous portrait painter for the aristocrats in the early 1900’s?)
