Her style has been described as classy and chic and she’s gone from a troubled young girl to a more measured and young woman before our very eyes.
Pulse sat down with Cee-C to discuss all things fashion and find out what really makes her tick.
What inspires your style and how do you think it has changed since leaving the house?
I’ve always been stylish, if you look at my pictures prior to Big Brother, I’ve always been someone who likes to express herself through the way she dresses.
I like looking good and I like good things so for me, nothing has changed since the Big Brother house.
Yes of course, I now wear better stuff, more quality stuff because there wasn’t money at that time, now there’s money.
What are 3 items that you cannot live without?
A bodycon dress, my lashes and nice shoes.
Which Nigerian designers do you like?
I like Andria, she has been styling me ever since I came out of the house and I think she’s a very good stylist.
For now, that’s about it, all my clothes come from her.
How did you cope with the criticism of your appearance in the house and what advice would you give to young women facing the same thing?
I think it’s OK for people to criticise you because of they don’t, how will you know what you are not doing right?
For me, I take it as a part of learning because there’s a thing called growth and with growth you are supposed to move from one place to another and people should be able to help you with that.
To the young ones out there, do not get carried away with all of that, don’t get sucked into the idea that people hate you. Everybody cannot like you, if everybody likes you that means you’re doing something wrong.
Just know your truth and know who you are and when you do, dealing with criticism becomes much easier.
