Monique Lhuillier gowns, Zac Posen dresses, Cartier jewels, and Lorraine Schwartz diamonds. What could make any celeb-fashion event better? — Music! Condé Nast’s 5th Annual ‘Fashion Rocks’ concert took place last night @ NYC’s Radio City Music Hall. Celebeauties like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Solange, Mariah, Mary J, and much more performed, but the biggest attraction was, of course, the fashion.
Ms. Ashanti is definitely the ‘most improved’, since last year’s event. This year, she rocked the red carpet in an opened-back fuschia dress, with jeweled detailing.
Solange was her usual self last night. Always one to “awe” the crowd, with her unusually fashionable style, she arrived in a scary jeweled, feather bolero. She performed in a paper maché-esque dress, and gold mary janes, but it was really cute!
I did these fashion flashbacks to show the slow progress of these two ladies. Tyra looked like a drag queen-wax dummy, and Mary J should have never purchased that Roberto Cavalli gown. Word to the wise: “Just because it says Louis Vuitton, doesn’t mean you should buy it.”
Brandy wore a dress from Lanvin’s fall ’08 collection, paired with the newly obsessed YSL platform pumps, and Keyshia wore a super-sequined dress, lace bra, and Christian Louboutin heels to the event. Brandy tried her best to work her trash bag attire, and Keyshia looked like she went straight from the night club to the party.
Oh yeah — Lil’ Mama came too.
