To name one actress that has amassed a cult following over her red-carpet costumes is none other than Rita Dominic. Closer to starring in a Hollywood feature and already an African asset held in high esteem, Rita owes her A-lister status mainly to her decades of acting, producing and directing; but next to these are her red-carpet looks that have accrued her a momentum acceptable by her fan army.
Over the years at the AMVCAs, Rita has either come in as a nominee, who has gone on further to win two plaques (2014 and 2017) or as a guest whose appearance gave a powerful sum-up of popular African filmmakers that graced the occasion. As a gesture of respect to the AMVCA meaning and an uplifting of her unmatched Nollywood figure, Rita never slacks in delivering an overall look that prompts fashion and style note takers to be on guard for new lessons.
Ahead of the AMVCA this Saturday, March 14, we take a tour through all six gowns donned by the actress one of the biggest red carpet events in Africa.
The amazing Rita Dominic made her debut appearance at the AMVCAs red carpet in a silk dress by Moofa Designs. She made a statement by completing the look with a turban.
Here, we have a custom-made Lanre Da Silva dress.
The following year was yet another Lanre Da Silva print dress featuring a tasteful slit and a burgundy velvet belt to match the print.
The year was 2016 and the colour was green! The screen goddess turned heads on the AMVCAs red carpet in an Elvira Jude gown featuring a floor-length skirt and train.
In 2017, the actor looked adorable in yet another Lanre Da Silva gown going for an impeccably done elaborate make-up the perfect drop earring to match.
Her last appearance at the AMVCAs saw her most iconic look in this Tubo number. The off-the-shoulder royal blue dress with slicked back ponytail and minimal accessorizing ensured she was etched at the top of the best dressed list! We can’t wait to see what look she’ll turn in this year.
