Angela Simmons in Nigerian Fashion Label Design, Virgos Lounge

January 29, 2011

The newly blonde one-half of successful brand Pastry Angela Simmons has joined the growing trend of Hollywood embracing African designers. Her Nigerian stylist and best friend Kanayo Ebi picked out the silver sequin jumpsuit from Nigerian fashion label Virgos Lounge. Angela completed her look with a pair of gray Yves Saint Laurent Trib TOO slingbacks.

Angela (Rev. Run’s daughter) initially post a picture up to her Twitter followers and Kanayo and Virgos Lounge happily acknowledged the exciting news. (Kanayo has been responsible for all of Angela’s recent red carpet appearances and they have worked together as far back to this moment if not longer! Angela and Kanayo also made this black and gold Louis Vuitton heel from its Fall 2008 collection return back  for her current London events.) Angela called her Virgos Lounge outfit “so Tina Turner.” (Co-sign!) Check out the action all went down on Twitter and here’s the Tweets exchanged.

@kachmeifyoucan: @AngelaSimmons haaa is that the jumpsuit from the london boutique that I picked out for u ;-)??
@angelasimmons: Headed out # LondonTown.. My outfit is so tina turner lol.. ROLLING haha.. Its really different.. ❤
@VIRGOS LOUNGE: Angela Simmons rocking the hell out of a Virgos Lounge Jumpsuit! Such a fab chic and a Virgo too 🙂


Virgos Lounge was created by three virgos (including the lovely Oye Akinsola) to provide vintage fashion to the everyday fashion-forward woman. The chic womenswear online boutique (created in 2008) is currently based in London. The label just launched their 2010 Winter “Glitz” collection which Last Plane to Lagos has the scoop on!
