Nneoma Edith Anosike is an 18 year old student of Philosophy at the University of Lagos. The Imo State indigene came into spotlight after winning the Elite Model Look African Regional Model search in 2013.. Nneoma who comes from a family of seven – including her parents loves yam and eggs. Nneoma has been on different magazines and newspapers and is not new to the runway as she modeled at the last Lagos Fashion and Design Week to name but a few. Nneoma, who had always wanted to be a model from her early days (specifically like Agbani Darego) took the opportunity during the casting. and was in low spirits after she saw the sheer number of people that turned up for casting. However, it didn't kill her dream. She made it to top 60 and then, the 14 finalists. Nneoma is a lover of shoes and bangles, doesn't like earrings and neckpieces because they tend to bother her. Favorite shows are Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and Telemundo amongst others. Anyway, let the pictures do the talking. Here's what the style team thinks of Nneoma's fashion sense. Firstly, it should be noted that most models/supermodels aren't the greatest people to look up to in terms of fashion. Only a handful qualify as fashionistas. The majority are more simple when it comes to putting on outfits off the runway. From Tyra Banks, to Alek Wek et al, models and supermodels do not always dress it up when out and about. Nneoma isn't very different from this group of laid-back models when it comes to fashion. Her outfit at the Elite Model Look finale in lagos was chic, not overly sexy, age appropriate, and event appropriate. You can't go wrong with a good LBD. Its no wonder she came out the winner. In keeping with her style of simplicity, off the runway, Nneoma opted for this white loose mini which she accesorised with white pupms, and a grey purse for a day out. While we love simplicity, this dress does her no justice. As we all know, the fitting of a dress can make or mar it. This dress is ill-fitting in lots of places. Besides, those puffy sleeves need to go too. All black everything. Great pose, and great outfit for a shoot (depending on the theme). Hair, makeup, and dress, all fab! This is what a model should look like. Not too flashy, but still looking good nevertheless. Because of how hard models train to keep their body and figure in shape, they tend to flaunt it every now and again. Though the top part of the dress is sheer, it wasn't done in a ditasteful way. Its classy while still model-esque In keeping with the colourful theme of the shoot, Nneoma posed in a colourful detailed dress. Her hair added something extra to it all. Shooting and ad and having it not be about you, and more about the product being advertised can be a task for models but Nneoma did this flawlessly. She stuck to a white top, and not so heavy makeup while posing for a bottle water ad. Not distracting at all. Good! From the white top, to the black skirt, to the clutch, to the gold statement neckpiece, to the gold shoes, everything about this outfit screams simple yet chic. A sleeker bun would have been a much better hairdo here, but the fabness of this outfit can excuse that. A ten! Written By: Franklin Ugo
