Leona Lewis Continues to Trend Her Unique Style

AN ACQUIRED TASTE

WHO: Leona Lewis

WHAT: Midriff baring Fashion Statements

WHEN: May 23rd, 2011

WHERE: BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra’s Hackney weekend at Hackney Empire, London, England.

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Again with the bare midriff look. The scalloped hem is interesting but the look is much too busy for my personal taste. See our past feature on Leona for more details.

Hollywood Fashion with Victoria Beckham – Pregnant in Über Heels

MATERNITY SPICE

WHO: Victoria ‘Posh Spice’ Beckham

WHAT: Simon Fuller’s Hollywood Walk Of Fame Ceremony

WHEN: May 23rd, 2011

WHERE: Hollywood, California

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: *Please DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS LOOK unless you are the fashionista seen above.* We do not advocate pregnancy in pumps but Victoria makes it look wicked good. We believe that the maternity gown she is wearing is one of her own designs from the current season. Perhaps she brought her son, Brooklyn along for support in case she slipped in those seven-inch-custom-made Christian Louboutin pumps. We get it Posh, your fashion does not take a break for anything but please endeavour to wear some flats at some point during your pregnancy. B-
