Show-Stopping Lace Aso-ebi Gowns and Geles Styles
Familiar faces among the list of celebrity guests that attended include Toke Makinwa, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Kate Henshaw, Bisola (former BBNaija housemate) and Sharon Ooja (of Ndani TV’s Skinny Girl in Transit).
We spotted four different types and colours of aso ebi materials that guests made into stunning dresses, but all aso ebi materials were lace and had pink undertone. One set of aso ebi material/ fabric was a transparent and flowery, black tattoo lace that either contrasted or blended beautifully with the colour of lining it was sewn with (as seen on Nancy Isime and Beverly Naya above). Another set of lace aso ebi was of shimmering pink colour (as seen on Toke Makinwa). The third type of lace aso ebi materials was a pink colour with a touch of burgundy accents (as seen on Lillian Afegbua above).
Gele headtie was shades of pink colour. Some of the celebrity wedding guests finished their look with baby pink gele and some had hot pink gele. We also spotted some guests complementing their outfits with fuschia pink gele headwrap.
From Toke Makinwa’s shimmering pink aso-ebi gown to Beverly Naya’s slit short gown aso-ebi, to Kate Henshaw’s gorgeous pink royal ascot style gele, there were plenty show-stopping aso-ebi wedding guest looks at Mo Abudu’s daughter’s traditional wedding ceremony.
We can’t help but gush at pictures of the celebrity Aso-ebi styles and their show-stopping Gele styles from this wedding. Thumbs up to the fashion designers and gele artists that styled the celeb guests. It’s amazing to see how the same aso-ebi fabric, in the same colour, could be made into many different and stunning dress styles.
Every celeb at that wedding looked stunning. Their makeup was on-point, their outfits on-fleek. Their Gele head-tie styles were all gorgeous – most had a twist to the traditional Gele styles we see every day. Some of the Nigerian designers that outfitted the celebrity guests included @zhenawoman, @fablanebyderin, and @suemanuell – they’re all are on Instagram.

Thoughts: Our Favourite Celebrity Lace Aso-ebi Styles at #TeddieMak
Those are our favourite looks from that wedding. Did you norice that they’re all floor-length maxi gowns? Did you also notice that each celeb lined their lace-y aso-ebi fabric in a different colour of lining and that made each outfit look different and stand out? Did you also notice the pattern of their gele headties – fan on the side and twist on the side? Seemed that they all planned it. Thanks to their gele artists and dress designers, overall, the girls all rocked it well.
I hope the above lace aso-ebi gown styles inspire you on what to wear or sew when invited to a big Nigerian wedding or any occasion. As you can see from the asoebi bellas (above), #TeddieMak was lit! Oh, I forgot to tell you that #TeddieMak was the hashtag for Mo Abudu’s daughter’s traditional wedding. In summary, all the celebs’ wedding guest dresses are head-turners. Trust Nigerian women to show up looking really good.
