It was a night of drama and elegance as Nollywood celebrities, fashionistas and influencers gathered in Lagos, Nigeria for the premiere of Ocean’s 8 movie on Sunday.

The stars turned out in force to celebrate one of the most anticipated Hollywood movies of the year with a Met Gala themed event — a nod to the film’s heist plot where an all-female crew attempt to steal precious jewels at New York City’s yearly Met Gala.

The stylish, and, at times, outlandish outfits at the Lagos premiere had fans taking to social media to debate which celebrity nailed the Met Gala theme.

The colorful and dazzling array of outfits on the red carpet were created entirely by African designers such as South African Gert Johan Coetzee, who designed Zimbabwean TV personality Vimbai Muthinhiri’s dress.

Others included thespian costumier Africana who created a dramatic peacock feather cape for theater star Osas Ighodaro Ajibade.
