Never underestimate the power of good styling, and especially that of good make up. Till now, Wendy Shay is still haunted by her style choice when she visited his excellency and ex-president Mr John Kufour last year wearing spandex pants and a spandex crop top (can you imagine?).
Well, rising Ghanaian star Eno Barony who has been on the scene for years, but recently saw her path to limelight by picking up a verbal battle with singer Sister Afia. She saw her popularity rise faster than one could imagine.
Shortly after that made her first celebrity guest appearance to the BET Ghana ambassador unveiling event. Like most girls out of the limelight that underestimate styling and makeup, she probably assumed she could take the task on, swift in and out of the event, and all will be well. Unfortunately for her, she was met with severe scrutiny. See the comments in the article below.
Some of her harsh critics even compared Eno Barony to a man. In these modern times, there is hardly any musician that has seen the light of success and fame without beauty. Long gone are the days where women can rise to fame and popularity simply based on good music alone. This type of presentation could have easily placed a cap on the growth of this young Ghanaian talent.
However, it seems all of that is now nothing but a hidden memory in the eyes of the public. In fact, no one ever talks about it, all thanks to makeup brand Aligiina Makeover that fixed up the rapper most beautifully. Their work on Eno Barony went viral and proved the essential difference of getting the right makeup professionals, see some images below.
Again as said, Eno’s bad make up experience is nothing but a memory that never happened. Come to think of it, Wendy Shay’s criticism of bad styling could all disappear also if a great stylist was to be hired.
UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
