Liberian Entertainment Awards Red Carpet Expectations

18 February 2017 / Abraham Pipi Lamal 

Choicy D
It's that time of the year, celebrating Liberia's arts and culture at the Liberian Entertainments Award, Liberia's biggest event in the world.  Many have been planning for this event since last year, right after the Fillmore scene in Silver Spring, Maryland. Now, it’s going down in Washington DC, the time of year when DC cherry trees start to blossom in the Potomac River and over the city. Ladies, get ready to bloom and gentlemen prepare to impress as we celebrate at the annual Liberian Entertainment Awards.

Let's talk colors. 

Just as New York Fashion Week came to its end, the Pantone Color Institute was at the ready to declare those top 10 spring 2017 colors that are to lead the pack throughout the whole spring/summer season. According to Pantone’s Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report, the upcoming spring is likely to see all the colors of nature actualized on garments, bringing a mixture of vitality, relaxation and the great outdoors starting from that avocado-reminiscent Greenery and its more muted counterpart Kale to energetic Primrose Yellow and blindingly bright Pink Yarrow and Flame. So, don't be surprise to see a lot of blue, yellow, green and pink on the red carpet this year, from both the ladies and the fellows.  

Next stop, style.  




There is a new attitude shift toward 'African attire' within the Liberian community. Expect to see a lot of African/European styles flooding the red carpet this year, from both the ladies and gentlemen.  I do see the fellows wearing more bandanna than neck ties. 

A save look for the fellows is the slim fitted suits. It has been proven over the years that well tailored and fitted suits are the recipe for a red carpet, whether it’s European, American or African, Slim fit, Suit fit or Classic fit, Single breasted or double breasted style, a Dashiki, Buba-Yoruba, Gele, Kaftans or the Ghanaians smock sewed and pattern shirt, gown or trousers, as long it is tailored well and fitted it can be a good watch outfit for a red carpet. 
And for the ladies, 2017 is less of the royal dramatic trains from 2016 LEA and more of the semi cathedral train, between the chapel train and the cathedral.  Basically, long dress with controllable trains.  No need to be tripping over your dresses this year.  As for the shoes, it's based off individual taste.  Ladies most likely will be aiming for designs and height, fellows definitely staying with comfort.  

Let us all be great, glamours and fashionistas at the Liberian Entertainment Awards this year.

Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
