Here’s What Went Down at The First Annual Filmhouse, Moet & Chandon Film Gala
Moet and Chandon teamed up with Film House Cinemas to host the first ever film gala in the country on Saturday, 26th January, at the Wings Tower, Victoria Island.
The event, which was graced by notable media personalities, celebrities and Nollywood actors, was held to celebrate short film in Nollywood.
The event, which kicked off with the purple carpet, was slated for 5 pm. By 5:30 pm, celebrities including Mawuli Gavor, Juliet Ibrahim, Chinedu Ikedieze had started arriving at the venue.
Although the film gala was themed "married to the arts", only a few celebrities stuck to the dress code.
One of the celebrities who spoke with Happenings on style choices was Ikechukwu. He admitted that he felt like wearing jeans but had decided to go with the theme.
Most male celebrities kept their style at the event simple and straightforward but not the ladies. The ladies went all out for the film gala, as everyone wanted the spotlight on them.
Some of the best dressed women that graced the purple carpet were media personality Vimbai, actresses Sharon Ooja and Toyin Abraham.
A few others, like Chigul, dressed way below expectation. The comedian’s dressing was a bit too casual. Shaffy Bello could be best described as a little overdressed. Osas Ajibade and Toni Tones looked spectacular in their outfits by Lanre DaSilva Ajayi.
The host arrived late to the event. Perhaps this was a result of poor planning on the part of the organisers.
Most of the celebrities were polite and gracious. It was hard not to notice, though, that most of the A-list actors were absent.
In all, the event was quite good and interesting.
