We just saw these photos of Alek Wek promoting RED's new collaboration with Diptique candles and thought, "hmmmm, she has to be wearing Deola Sagoe!":
Who else brings aso-oke to life like DS? On top of that, we remembered the first issue [The Africa Issue] of Arise magazine and the fact that Alek Wek wore the same dress in her spread:
The combination of gold and blue aso-oke and the slightly clinched waist, shape and length of this dress make it utter perfection. And who better to wear it than Alek Wek? Sigh. Really and truly, this has been one of the best weeks to blog ever. We're still counting down to the Arise Magazine African Collective III show on Saturday...and we really hope wherever Deola Sagoe is, she knows Alek Wek was out and about yesterday doing her justic.
