Actress,Mercy Aigbe finally addresses her red dress controversy.
Mercy Aigbe who has been on the news since she celebrated her 40th birthday because of one of the outfit she wore for her birthday photo-shoot has broken her silence on the red dress issue that has been lingering for sometime now on social media .
Due to a dispatch error by the designer,Maryam Elisha,the dress which was originally meant for a bride was giving to Mercy and the the bride received another as a replacement.
In response to the scandal,she wrote;
I have followed events as they unfold following a particular dress I wore for a photoshoot. First, I must say that I sincerely sympathise with the bride as this situation is painful, unfortunate and regrettably avoidable. I hired and paid Seun @styledbyseun for the photoshoot as a stylist and got four dresses for the shoot. Seun and I were unaware that one of the dresses was meant for someone else. I am embarrassed that the designer was not professional enough in handling events leading to this moment. It is also painful that a bride is made to go through what the bride has been made to go through. I have reached out to both the stylist and designer (whom I have never met nor HIRED directly) to express my displeasure. I have instructed my lawyer to look into this and see how best to approach this from a legal point of view without festering an already open wound. Thanks.
