The grand finale of Ghana’s highest patronized prestigious beauty pageant, Ghana’s Most Beautiful (GMB) came to a successful end at TV3’s Studio B last Sunday, September 20,2020 after 13 weeks of the ladies displaying Ghana’s richly diverse culture from all the 16 regions and competing for the envious crown, cash, car and trip prize.
The 16 beauties represented their regions but as culture demands of every competition, 10 of the ladies were evicted along the way based on their weekly presentation and public votes. The six finalists who battled it out for the 2020 GMB crown were; Naa, Abena, Kafui, Zuzu, Talata, and Afriyie.
On the night, the ladies were styled in GTP fabric designed gowns from various designers that were booked for the show. We would like to throwback and highlight the outfits won by these ladies even though the designers’ names were not revealed in the pictures posted by TV3 Ghana.
Naa from the Greater Accra Region, Ahafo Region’s Abena and Northern Region’s Zuzu was graciously and florally glam in ‘mermaid’ gowns. The designs of the colorful prints were complimented with different fabrics and shiny stones which gave the outfit a splendid outcome. Naa and Zuzu nailed the outfit but for Abena, we will say the colors of the complete outfit were too dull for her complexion.
Though Talata from the Upper East and Central Regions’ Afriyie’s gown came out quite simple, the various patterns, shiny fabrics and laces used to decorate the GTP gave them an excellent touch. They both looked elegant and gorgeously slew in the outfit.
Volta Region’s Kafui wore the most sophisticated outfit. She was styled in a three-pieces layered gown. That might seem a bit heavy and stressful to wear but she modeled in it very simple.
Naa was crowned the winner for GMB 2020, Abena was adjudged the 1st Runner Up, Kafui 2nd Runner Up, Zuzu 3rd Runner Up, Talata 4th Runner Up and Afriyie was the 5th Runner Up respectively.

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.
