Aside of the fact that the event started very late, production was very much on point, including stage design, sound, lighting but the event lacked proper coordination and the usual excitement an event of such nature generates.

However, what really dominated the night was the glamour and the memorable fashion statements made by the various celebrities.

The stars turned out in their numbers and in style at the Kempinski Hotel on Saturday night. From the males to the ladies, there was plenty of ‘spectacular’ gowns and tuxedos.

PROMINENT STARS DISQUALIFIED FROM EUROSTAR GHANA FASHION REVIEW

Golden Movie-Awards-2016-best-dressed

Prominent celebrities have been disqualified from the sensational Eurostar Ghana Fashion Review which seeks to reward best dressed celebrities’ appearance on the red carpet.

In recent times, Eurostar Global Limousines Group has been awarding Ghanaian celebrities who appear on red carpets at major events in the country with several thousands Euros worth of shopping voucher .

Starting from Ghana Movie Awards 2015, the luxury vehicle rental company has for the past months been given  cash prizes ranging from 3000Euros shopping voucher to 1000Euros shopping voucher to celebrities who are been voted as best dressed at red carpet sessions on various events and last review was on the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards which was won by reigning artiste of the year, Elorm Adablah popularly known as E.L and actress Joselyn Dumas were awarded 3000 Euros each as best dressed male and female celebrities .

However, most stars who attended the just ended Golden Movie Awards 2016  are not eligible for the review this time around due to some technical reasons.

According head of the review panel Mr. Oscar Yao Doe who is also President & Executive Chairman Eurostar Limousine, most of the stars who attended the event refused to obey the simple rules of the fashion review.

Mr. Oscar explained that the simple rules are that all celebrities dressed very decently, be on time to be part of the official red carpet session and pose for the paparazzi on the official red carpet space that usually has a backdrop which has the logos of the organizers, the sponsors and their media partners printed on it.

“Majority of the celebrities were very late to the event and most of them failed to pose on the official red carpet space provided by the organizers. Organizers of these glamorous events go through a lot to put together such great events and provide opportunities for these celebrities to show off their fashion. So if they don’t value and respect what these organizers do and decide to do their own thing, then I don’t think they deserve to be rewarded”.

Mr. Oscar said he and his review panel will make celebrities change their attitude towards attending red carpet events and do the right thing like how it is done the world over. In view of this, the Ghana Fashion Review panel have disclosed that only six out of the several male and female celebrities qualify for Golden Movie Awards fashion review. The 6 are Model Victoria Michaels, actress Selly Galley, TV Presenter Anita Akuffo, Stephanie Karikari, actress Moesha Bodoung and TV Presenter AJ Sarpong.

He added that the top 3 and final winner would chosen out of this 6, and this would be announced in due course.

Due to this cash given to best dressed male and female celebrities at events, Ghanaian stars appeared at the recently held Golden Movie Awards in their best outfits but most of them will be disappointed to hear that they have been disqualified but Mr. believes this is important to make our celebrities adhere to world standards.

Some of the celebrities present at the event who couldn’t make it for the review includes Joselyn Dumas, Yvonne Okoro, Lydia Forson, Ama K. Abebrese, Nadia Buari, Gloria Sarfo, Deborah Vanessa, Zynell Zuh, Ahuofe Patri, Van Vicker, Kalybos, Eddie Nartey, Harold Amenya, Kofi Adjorlolo, Ekow Smith Asante, Toosweet Annan, Nikki Samonas, Luckie Lawson, Martha Ankomah, Diamond Appiah, Luckie Lawson, Caroline Sampson, Shatta Wale, Elikem Kumordzi, Becca among others.

Before the VGMAs best dressed celebrity awards, Eurostar Global Limousines Group had awarded best dressed male and female celebrities at last year’s Ghana Movie Awards. The award gave actor Harold Amenyah popularly known for “Drop That Yam” Tigo advert the opportunity to be at this year’s Cannes Film Festival held May 11 to 22 in France.

The Ghana Fashion Review is by Africa’s leading luxury car rental company Eurostar Global Limousine Group with support from media partner including Nkonkonsa.com, Ameyawdebrah.com, Ghanagist.com, Ghkwaku.com, Ytainment.com, Starr FM, Zionfelix.net, Cypressgh.com, 4Syte TV among others.
