What’s hot and what’s not?

02 November 2018
Each week, the Windhoek Observer’s Entertainment crew takes an insightful, yet amusing look at the entertainment industry, lifestyle and fashion happenings in Windhoek and across the world, and judges whether they are hot or not.
This week, we look at some of the outfits worn to recent events.
Gold dust dress storms the desert!
This dress is designed by local designer, Ruberto Scholtz. He calls the dress Gold Dust. We are also huge fans of gold and black, particularly done in shaped textures throughout the fabric.  We feel that this dress is absolutely, un-erringly BEAUTIFUL and fits the ‘African endowment, more shapely body’ well.  We admire the fact that it grabs the model tight around her sexy body and then flows beautifully down, mermaid style, all the way onto the ground. This off-shoulder dress certainly gets a PERFECT score from us!
Thumbs up for orange evening dress
Lucy K you showed up in this ‘hot’ number at the annual sports awards ceremony that was held last weekend in Swakopmund. We love the gold appliqué swirls on the dress.  We applaud you for pulling off this colour.  Orange is one of those colours that many women try to stay away from – it is either hit or miss, depending on the tinge of tone and colour in your skin.  You are a hit!  We are a huge fan of off-shoulder dresses, so this one certainly gets a big YES from us. Your hair and make-up were also on point.
Less is sometimes more
Singer Bebe Rexha is over the top unnecessarily at the Moschino x H&M fashion show, wearing a CD-patterned ensemble complete with CD earrings and a gold Moschino belt. We hate this outfit because it is too much.  It is more like a costume than a fashion statement.  We hope she chose to look this way as a sort of ‘joke.’  Bebe, you stood out for all the wrong reasons. We do understand that you love albums, but it’s not necessary to wear them all over your body. We would advise you to always remember “Less is sometimes more”
Meriam is hot in sexy swimwear
Swimwear designs have certainly changed and we love this one. Namibia’s own Meriam Kaxuxwena uploaded on social media this picture of herself in the Bahamas. We love all those strips in the right places and bright coloured designs that tease the imagination.   We are not sure about the huge ‘bangs’ of her wig that seem to cover over her lovely eyes, but we like the pool-side-beauty setting, though we know her suit would probably fall apart if she hit the water.
