Angela Simmons in Nigerian Fashion Label Design, Virgos Lounge
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.
