#AMVCA2016 Countdown! Trends That Might Win On The Red Carpet

share on:

The African Magic Viewers Choice Awards is almost here with a slated date for Saturday 6th March 2016

The event which is set to honor the best films and characters for the year, always see some of our favorite celebrities step out in their finest to grace the red carpet.

We’ve tried to make a few early calls of what we expect to see some stars wearing on one of the biggest nights of the year for African TV and film and while the anticipation is high on who will win what, the fashionable fans have their eyes fixed on the red carpet.

Here are five trends that I predict might be a big win at #AMVCA2016!


Capes have experienced periodic returns to fashion but more like anything, it looks like this trend is here to stay for a while. Last year when we gave our style predictions, Capes were included and just when we thought we have had enough of this trendy design detail, A couple of designers have taken on the trend, showing off various versions of the cape.

Hence, we won’t be surprised to see the capes take over the town come Saturday

We have seen fringed details creeping onto bags and shoes since last season, but this season it’s something exceptional and different. Fringes are finding their way to dresses, skirts and even tops. And at the rate which designers are picking on this trend, we are almost certain some of our favorite stars will show up at #AMVCA2016 rocking it.

The red carpet is becoming more daring these days as super sexy cut-out dresses are appearing on every red carpet. Stars like Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj have already turned heads in their daring numbers and I wishfully predict that a number of Nigerian celebrities will pick up this trend for the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards.




Sequins add sparkle and a  festive look to any dress, be it formal or party dresses. Little wonder a number of stars have been lightening up the red carpet with their sequin dresses. I can already predict a few stars rocking this on the #AMVCA2016 red carpet.

This 80s trend has made a fashion comeback and this time it’s fresher and more sophisticated. If there’s one trend celebrities can’t get enough of, it’s off the shoulder and with the weather being so hot at this time, we are sure a number of celebrities will jump on this trend for the #AMVCA2016.
