Ghana is definitely one of the prominent places for fashion in Africa in both cultural and modern terms. However, none other but Margaret Gakuo Kenyatta (first lady of Kenya) made a stronger fashion statement when she arrived for various activities in Ghana along side other first ladies.
Upon her arrival last week she is seen wearing a Salman red jackets over a pencil dress. A good choice when arriving in any country where the temperature is unknown. Her jacket was beautifully combined with monochrome knee length pencil dress that had a strip of red before the cut off.
However, Margaret Gakuo Kenyatta statement that stood her appart from the ladies in Ghana as well as the other first ladies was when she showed her ‘up to date’ fashion sense not only rocking the cape dress on two separate occassions, but rocking the various types with great styling and print combination as seen below.
Here Margaret marginalizes her fashion sense from the other ladies with her white cape dress, amazing jewelry and fabulous statement necklace that stand out on the white carefully paired with her under blue top. And a beautiful print skirt showing her flamboyance, at the Launch of the United Continental All-In Adolescent HIV campaign where she spoke also.
If you thought that was the only cape dress combination the first lady of Kenya executed you are wrong. Earlier before, she was seen in a print cape dress whilst in her pre meeting for the opening of the 7th ACSHR 2016. Knowing very well not to mix match prints, it was layered over a plain white dress with a white pearl necklace to go. This is by far no mistake but the doing of a self aware fashionista.
But Margaret Gakuo Kenyatta very much showed her deep rooted African cultural traditional fashion sense when she joined President of Ghana, H.E. John Dramani Mahama in the launch of Ghana’s Ending Child Marriage Campaign dinner. Here she wears a kaftan dress with her headwrap….
…and also her formal side when meeting with former president John Jerry Rawlins.
After reviewing the clothes of the other first ladies, there is no doubt that she tops them all as the most stylish first lady of Africa.
