Style to Steal or Girl, Stop Weekly Wrap-Up: Jessica White, Nicki Minaj, La La and More
You know what time it is. It’s about to be the weekend, so we have to do a rewind on some of the most fun, eclectic and busted outfits of the week. Shall we begin?
While at Madison Square Garden to cheer on her man Melo, La La Anthony showed up in boy-meets-girl ensemble that was a mix of prints and textures. She wore a sheer Alexander Wang top (sweater actually) that mixed orange, black and white. On her feet were some snakeskin Louboutins, peeking underneath leather pants. While I think she might have been going for a casual but cool ensemble, this mixture of looks is…the most. I’ll pass, but if they were worn separately I’m sure it would be hot. No thanks though.
Girl, where have you been!? Singer Chrisette Michelle finally brought herself out of the house for a Petals-N-Belles Limitless event in NYC. She wore this body-hugging dress with snowflake-like designs and some intricately placed sequins. On her feet were some taupe peep-toe pumps with floral detailing at the front. She came to the event with her quilted purse, a few funky rings, and a fresh, close cut. Don’t forget the pink lip! The dress actually doesn’t bother me because it fits nicely, but the shoes don’t work with it. And with the pink lip…I don’t know, there’s a lot going on. I’ll take the dress, but pass on everything else. Unless that’s a Chanel bag of course!
*Makes growling noise* “American Idol” winner Jordin Sparks popped up at Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night event in Phoenix in this floor length leopard gown. At the midsection was an ornate black belt, on the ears were small crystal droplets, and the hair was pulled back in a clean ponytail. She could have done a lot more with the accessories as far as bracelets or even rings go, but the ruffled neckline and draping actually make this dress very cute to me. Steal. A summer steal for sure.
A lover of all colorful things, Rihanna left her hotel in London this week in this Stella McCartney blazer that she turned into something of a dress and rolled the sleeves up for. Love the abstract-ish print, and as long as it is, wearing it as a dress could be the best bet. She paired it with strapped black sandals (heels though), some fly gold hoops and these retro shades. I don’t know if I would be brave enough to do this, pants are kind of my thing, so I’ll say no for me, but for her, it looks good. Steal.
This one right here…Jessica White is one of those people who tries to do the vintage thing like no other, but is she successful in doing so? Uh…depends on your interpretation of success. But anywho, she showed up at the Jeffrey Fashion Cares event in NYC in this sea foam dress with big bell sleeves, a very open back, a tie at the midsection, and gold heels. The dress also had openings around the collar bone, and she wore large cameo style earrings in black to top it all off. To be honest, this outfit reminds me of a choir robe somebody tried to sex up. I still think she’s gorgeous, but hell to the no.
“Revenge” actress Ashley Madekwe attended the flagship store opening for Valentino’s 50th anniversary in Beverly Hills this week. For the occasion, she dressed up but still dressed down if you know what I mean. She wore this light tank in a salmon color with a free-flowing skirt and lace jacket over it all. She topped it off with these strapped, open-toe platforms, and a fierce leopard Mulberry bag. Love the hair by the way. This is a pretty laid back ensemble, but I’m feeling it surprisingly. Somebody in NYC will be seen in this soon I’m sure *smile* Steal.
While performing on “American Idol” this week, Nicki showed up in this oh-so colorful outfit that included a curve-highlighting skirt with a sparkly train, beading and lots of frills. Pulled up high, she threw on a rainbow colored tiny top (aka, bra), and showed off some starfish earrings. Love the strappy heels, and her hair looks pretty good (though I’m not really a fan of her in the Barbie wigs). Of course, this is a girl, stop for anybody on the streets, but it’s one of Nicki’s more fun and cute costumes for the stage–so it’s a steal for her.
I’m guessing The-Dream must have hooked Milian up big time in their settlement because she’s always out in that “new new” these days. Take those YSL sandals on her feet. NOT cheap! But anywho, she paired them with pink skinny jeans, a cropped gray shirt with big, colorful sequins on the front. She also accessorized with her gray quilted bag, big silver earrings and a Benz that she hopped out of (lucky!). Don’t get me wrong, I probably wouldn’t wear this, but I think she looks too cute. Never would have thought to throw these things together. Steal!
All in all, I actually think I’ll steal Rihanna’s look. I think it’s brave and colorful, and if you can get away with showing off all that leg and what not, I’m not mad at you. Do it while you’re young, right? But as always, that just my opinion. Which look are you feeling and which ones are you not? Do tell!
