At the just concluded Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2017, some celebrities strutted their stuff on the runway for some of their favourite designers, who showed at the annual fashion event.
From former Miss World, Agbani Darego to current Miss Nigeria, Chioma Obiadi and actors and media personalities, they lit up the runway.
Here’s a look at the celebrities who took over the runway:
It was a pleasant surprise to see former Miss World, Agbani Darego on the runway of the HLFDW, she walked first for the Maybelline collection, before stunning the audience as she stepped out in a bridal gown from Andrea Iyamah.
The 40th Miss Nigeria, Chioma Obiadi walked for one of the brilliant collections shown at the fashion week, Gert Johan Coetzee. She wooed with both the corset dress she was wearing and her walk.

He also opened the show for Maybelline on Day 3 with his intricate face art and Afro mohawk.
When the so exciting Aboutthatcurvylife collective showed, voluptuous OAP, Tolu Oniru-Demuren stomped as one of the plus size models, putting her cleavage on full display. It was a beautiful outing for her.

When this fashion influencer, stepped on the runway for Johnson Johnson, he was gone with the wind. His entrance was very sharp, his walk sharper and his sway impeccable for a first timer on the runway.
The former BBA finalist walked the runway for Kiki Kimanu in a zebra print gown with red trimmings.
