Celebrity men did not get outshone by the women. One man who sure of that was Pretty Mike.
He was dressed in an embellished suit of drawings with a bus drawn on it and diamante. Over the suit, he had a long flowing cape tied from the neck.
The cape was plain at the front with embellished edges while the back had “the whole of Lagos island, ikoyi Bridge, eyo masquerade etc on it” according to the designer who made it, Toyin Abraham of Tiannah Styling. Toyin said she was inspired by Alicia Key’s NYC cape she wore to the Met Gala.
