Toyin Abraham’s corset gown for the ‘She Must Be Obeyed’ series premiere is a fashion fail. Fashion is painful, but not that painful.
For the star-studded series premiere produced and starring Funke Akindele, one of the guests was fellow actress and producer, Toyin Abraham.
In videos making the rounds on the internet, Toyin is seen wearing a nude and red gown with shiny stones. She looked uncomfortable and breathless.
The corset trend which started in 2021 has become a regular go-to for fashion designers, Owambe attendees, and Nigerian female celebrities. The fundamental nature of a corset gown is that an actual corset is sewn into the gown.
This outfit works better if you have a flat tummy, as it will accentuate your thin waist, but for those who have fat in their upper pelvic region, it can almost feel like their ribcage is being reined in, but many women love to wear corset gowns because it makes their stomach appear flat.
We wonder what the intention of the fashion designer or whoever chose this style for Toyin Abraham was.
Another outrageous faux pas is how the corset extends to her breasts and how the neckline is almost a turtleneck. At the end of the day, she ended up looking constipated and bloated as if she were stuffed into the gown.
The truth is, the outfit would have looked better on a slimmer person; the styling of the outfit didn’t factor in her body type.
Plus, the proclivity of Nigerian female celebrities to always wear nude, shiny corset gowns at every event is boring. We need to see the end of this trend so women can start breathing.
