Ghanaian actress and media personality Nana Ama McBrown is one of the top style icons in Ghana with a talented team of fashion designers and stylists who brainstorm to dress her in unique designed outfits.
The Onua showtime presenter, Nana Ama McBrown, failed to impress a fraction of her fans with her look at the 2023 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) event held on May 6, 2023.
However, many of her 4 million followers on Instagram, especially over 600 of them, including celebrities have complimented the fashion mogul for slaying on the red carpet.
However, according to checks by YEN.com.gh, Nana Ama McBrown’s dress is a complete replica of the stunning see-through Versace corset gown Lady Gaga wore to the 2023 Oscars.

It is a fashion rule for designers to change 10 things about a look by another designer if they want to take style inspiration from them. The original creative team spent time and lots of resources to create that unique design.
In the case of Nana Ama McBrown's red carpet look, the stylist is very talented but not creative. He didn't follow the fashion rule and just sketched the same thing for the fashion designer to sew. The team should acknowledge the original owner of the design.
