With all of the events that took place this weekend, there were plenty of opportunities to dress to impress on the red carpet.
First, there is Rip the Runway co-host LAUREN LONDON who is pictured here on the red carpet for the event. And if the things she's been wearing lately are all from the Sean John line for women, I am most definitely interested! She is pictured here in a tan 3/4 puff sleeve dress with a fantastic pair of boots! I am a very big fan of platformed boots, it adds so much character to a shoe, especially a pair of boots. The accessories, the thick snake skin belt and orange stone bracelet, make the outfit complete and the belt by the way is fabulous! Not to mention her hair an make up is very on point.
CHRISTINA MILIAN took the meaning of the black dress and totally redefined it! She looks stunning at an event for Billboard, and her hair is perfect for the dress. The swept up bun gives her shoulders and neck the showcase they deserve. I love the neckline, it's not too low as to where it looks inappropriate, and remains elegant and classy. Loves it!
"The Game" star TIA MOWRY wore this very beautiful black dress that faded into a charcoal gray color. I love that it comes all the way up to the neck and the pleating is perfect! The color is really what caught my eye and I had the perfect shoes in mind that are from PRADA, but she pick out a shoe that was just as good, if not better for the dress. I am loving this dress, and even though I like a lot of things, that doesn't necessarily mean I'd put it on. This however, I would definitely wear!
A woman who never ever disappoints me on the red carpet, KERRY WASHINGTON looks amazing! She attended an ESSENCE event honoring Black women in Hollywood and she was absolutely dressed to impress. This white peasant topped dress, set off by the high waist silver bottom is so adorable! I am loving the fit, and all the way down to the clutch and the peep toe shoes...it's a hit!
MARY J. BLIGE attended Elton John's Aids Foundation gala wearing a very beautiful Grecian inspired draped gown. The wrap dress is similar to TIA's in coloring with the fading from dark to light. I love the long portion that hangs from he back like a scarf, and she looks gorgeous. I love it.
Everything looks amazing and I wish I could get my hands on just about every single dress in this post!
- I feel a great mascara can open the eye and instantly make you look as though you’ve have a good night’s sleep, even when that is not the case. I use 2-3 coats of Lancome Fatale on the top, bottom, and also on the back of the top lashes.
- Because of my Indian ancestry, I love darkly rimmed eyes – a messy eye adds a sexy yet natural look to a classic outfit. To make the eyes smoky, I use Revlon’s Luxurious Color Kohl eyeliner in Black Truffle on the inside of the lids.
- Bright lipstick is a way to quickly pop an outfit and freshen up a look a la Ava Gardner in “The Barefoot Contessa.” My favorite bright is MAC’s Morange lipstick – it’s a great way to add a twist to a classic look.
- Another way to make your face pop is to fill in the eyebrows. I use Bobbi Brown’s eye shadow in Navajo.
