Five times Toyin Abraham has actually surprised us on the red carpet

Abraham

It’s Toyin Abraham‘s birthday today and we’re celebrating by looking back at the five times the actress who usually comes off as crass – for lack of a better word – showed up on the red carpet looking very refined, surprisingly.

There were plenty critics who didn’t like this look, this writer isn’t one of them. Granted, there were one or two things that needed fixing in the 2207 By TBally dress – like the bust area and the length of the basket supporting the ball skirt. But, I was wowed by this look, mainly because I wasn’t expecting it at all and partly because, no matter how you choose to look at it, Toyin looked absolutely amazing.

One of her all-time best looks

At the awards the previous year, Toyin was a picture of elegance in a black off-shoulder dress. This is definitely one of her all-time best looks.

By Damilola Olaoye

You sure want to look hot, sexy and ready for your man; then you need to know where to push the buttons when the time is ripe. Men are tactile and visual; they like naughty, risky and flattering sexy lingerie on a woman. The idea of a sensual feel of lace, satin, see-through lingerie on you is tempting enough for your man.

No matter your size, you can be your most desirable self but one thing you must know how to do is to accentuate your assets by flaunting what you’ve got and minimize your flaws by wearing exactly what suits you.

Bear in mind that if they love to see it, then they love to touch it, and it is an affirmative that they love you in it. All you need do is to wear that item that will speak more about your curves.

Sexy lingerie is a fun and no-pressure way to spice things up behind closed doors. A great way to enhance intimacy and sexuality, sexy lingerie simply highlights the body you have.

Corsets– The corset will slim the body and flatten your silhouette; it reveals cleavage which is a huge turn on to guys; combining it with a G-string or thong will make your man reel. You can add spice by going for colours like red and black that will give you a sexy, bad girl look.

Shelf-bras – Arouse your man with the sexy touch of a shelf bra, you will not only look sexy, you will feel it as the open cup will provide the perfect frame and shelf support for breasts.

Long robes – It is silky, sheer and sumptuous and definitely speaks elegance. It is a more matured way of getting your man’s attention. Ranging from silk to lace to satin, you can definitely achieve that effect.

Babydoll –This is a short, sometimes sleeveless, loose fitting nightgown meant for innocent seduction.

Negligee – This is not just meant for your honeymoon! Let the eyes of your man travel down the length of your torso and make him happy that he’s got you. There are long sleeves, short sleeves, V-neck, certainly a variety to choose from.

Just tantalize him with an alluring scent, set the scene with candle lights to create the mood, and then melt him down with a single stare. Keep it fresh and fun as you indulge your partner’s fantasy with sexy lingerie!

It was not perfect but it was still beautiful

The fit of this Modior number she wore to the premiere of Omoni Oboli‘s ‘My Wife & I’ is not exactly right or maybe who ever styled her forgot to smoothen out the dress before she posed for this picture but this wasn’t a bad look either.

MC on fleek!

This look wasn’t for a red carpet event but I couldn’t help sneaking it in because I loved it. Everything, from the short hairdo to how the 2207 by TBally dress hugged all the right curves totally banged.

Happy birthday Toyin, here is to many more years of pleasant surprises on the red carpet. We’re rooting for you!
