Local Female Celebrities Who Rocked Ankara

Local female celebrities have embraced Ankara, which was previously ordinarily left for our mothers and aunties, as a fashion staple in their wardrobe. It’s now become such a fashion statement and is commonly worn by celebrities during red carpet events.

Ankara may look like a simple outfit but it isn’t one that you can pull off without the style and confidence it needs. It’s a “loud” fabric and as such to rock it well you need to maintain a certain poise. Whether mixed with other fabrics or just plain, Ankara brings out the WOW factor.

Here are some female celebrities spotted in Ankara.

Top Five High Fashion Female Models

In a seemingly cut throat industry, unique looks,  beauty and the body will take you places your school certificates will not, and  I stand to be corrected on that. Designers keenly study a models body before she is put to work.

Cosmetic companies are also not left behind either as they want someone who can make their product shine. Unlike clothes designers, cosmetics companies source for models with a certain bone structure depending on the type of makeup being advertised. Jewelry is a wide scope so the designer may choose a different set of models to market different products.

Below is a list of some of the best fashion models we have around. Some of them have done runway, commercial  and print adverts for both local and international brands  like the Swahili Fashion week, Nairobi fashion market, Zanzibar fashion festival etc.

Why men are more narcissistic than women

Boasting of every achievement, real or imagined, as if you deserve a Nobel Prize? Check. Total disregard for others’ feelings and concerns? Check. Needing to be the most successful, fascinating and special person in any room you grace with your presence? Check, check, check.

Congratulations, you may be a narcissist … and if so, you’re also more likely to be a dude, according to Dr. Emily Grijalva, a professor at the University at Buffalo School of Management. She just released a three-year review, the first of its kind, that compiles research from half a million subjects, many of them college students.

With what must have been a tremendous tolerance for inflated egos, the researchers examined some of humanity’s least-attractive characteristics — manipulativeness, self-absorption, aggression and arrogance among them — and looked at how people responded to statements that included “If I ruled the world, it would be a much better place” and “I know that I am good because everyone keeps telling me so.”

They then qualified “narcissism” according to three facets: entitlement, leadership/authority and grandiose/exhibitionism. Men scored measurably higher than women in the first two categories and were more likely to agree with phrases like “I like having authority over people” and “I insist upon getting the respect that is due to me.” They were also more likely to exploit others and to believe that they were entitled to special privileges. But there was hardly any deviation between the two genders in the grandiose/exhibitionism category, which includes qualities like vanity and self-absorption.

Higher levels of narcissism have been a helpful adaptation for men, the study said, boosting their self-esteem and emotional stability and making them more likely to take on leadership roles. But it has its drawbacks.

“Narcissism is associated with various interpersonal dysfunctions, including an inability to maintain healthy long-term relationships, unethical behaviour and aggression,” lead author Emily Grijalva, a professor at the University of Buffalo, said in a news release. The study doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t already assume, but it is the first systematic review to back up the magnitude of gender stereotypes with actual data, according to Grijalva. It also looks into why those stereotypes exist in the first place.

“Individuals tend to observe and learn gender roles from a young age, and may face backlash for deviating from society’s expectations,” Grijalva said. “In particular, women often receive harsh criticism for being aggressive or authoritative, which creates pressure for women, more so than for men, to suppress displays of narcissistic behaviour.”

Stereotypes about the way men and women exhibit entitlement and leadership can be self-perpetuating, the study argued. For example, women score lower on the leadership/authority facet, meaning that they are less likely to wind up in leadership roles. But the resulting lack of female leaders could then reinforce the idea that women are worse leaders and less authoritative, pushing women to suppress those aspects of themselves to conform to gender expectations.

“For a woman who has deeply internalized a feminine gender identity, endorsing gender-stereotypical occupational preferences might be a mechanism used to avow her femininity to herself and to others,” the study said. The study did include one piece of good news: Neither female nor male college students are any more narcissistic now than they were in 1990.

Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson played the ghost-hunting quartet in the 1984 original.

Directed by Ivan Reitman, the film made almost $300m (£198m) at the global box office. A sequel, Ghostbusters II, followed five years later.

Plans for a follow-up have been mooted ever since, but appeared to have been scuppered by Murray’s reluctance to sign up for it.
