It was New York City’s biggest night in fashion as the stars hit the “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art last night. All kinds of materials and looks made their way on the red carpet from our favorite folks, and we’ve got a quick look back on all the hot pieces and the stars that wore them.
Talk about a stunner! Bey came through (sans Jay-Z) in this black see-through gown with a gorgeous black and purple train. All the detailing on this one, including the stones, the feathers, and all that mesh (her hands even seem to be covered in it), just make this a jaw-dropping stunner. Shout out to the good folks at the house of Givenchy for this look.
That’s my first thought when I peep this outfit Miss Keri baby wore to the 3rd Annual WEEN Awards in NYC last night. Not that Crayola is a bad thing, because color is fun, but there is just soooo much color in the mix with this look that hey, it had to be said. But let’s get on with it loves.
So the very pretty singer-songwriter arrived at the WEEN Awards in this tight rainbow-lific dress that showed off her shape and probably had the “mens” in the place staring. The dress, which was a moderately long for what looks like a freakum-ish dress, had a bondage wrap look over the chest, was sleeveless, and offered a keyhole peeka-a-boo slot in the front. The dress was bright with splashes of pink, blue, and red, and all the colors are accented by black stripes. She finished off her look with black pumps, a short, very fun and framing blonde bob with some large spherical earrings. Plus, the makeup is pretty polished and fab as well. So what do I think? I’ll be honest. For an awards ceremony, I can’t really say this dress is all that appropriate. It’s literally a party dress to “do it, to it” on the dance floor. While I would never want to show up at an awards with my mom dressed like that, I can’t play her, she looks great. This look would win high marks with me if the stripes weren’t on the dress, but I’ll give it a pass because it’s fun. I don’t say “STOP” it, but I “sholl” wouldn’t steal it either…

Coming in at nearly six feet (mostly legs) with skin the color of mahogany and distinctive facial features and expressions that would put Nicki Minaj to shame, Grace Jones was, is and will always be a style phenomenon. Before chicks like Lady Gaga were wearing provocative outfits to the airport, Grace Jones was rocking damn-near outlandish ensembles just about everywhere. From her actual clothing, which was so iconic thanks in part to the help of stylist Jean-Paul Goude (the father of her son Paulo by the way), to her hair and sheer presence, Jones made every arrival at every event a party. While most starlets are going for Hollywood classic glamor and want to look as normal as possible, I miss the crazy, androgynous style Ms. Jones ushered in. So here’s an ode to the “Pull Up to the Bumper” Jamaican-American singer in all her eclectic glory over the years, along with a few timeless things I learned from her.
Music and style are somewhat interchangeable as they both serve as a means of self-expression. So it’s no surprise that some of our favorite girl groups were also trendsetters in fashion, whether they knew it or not.
1960’s groups like the Supremes gave us glitz, glamour and just plain fabulousness. Before PETA existed, the three stylish ladies had every-day women longing to rock fur coats and diamonds (or rhinestones) to feel just as fabulous. The Supremes, and other groups like them, paved the way for future girl groups to create and embrace their individual style. Soon to follow were 90’s r&b groups like SWV and TLC. While their styles were quite different, they all became trendsetters in their own right. TLC even made wearing condoms as part of your wardrobe cool (well maybe not, but it definitely worked for Left Eye).
From the glamorous style of The Supremes to the boldness of TLC, check out some of our favorite r&b groups who created their own style.
