FASHIONWIDGET’S Best and Worst Looks from the 2011 BET Awards in Los Angeles

BEST DRESSED STARS

FYI: Hovering your cursor over each pic will reveal the name of the photographed personality and further commentary.

Ms good-two-shoes (no pun intended) Patti Labelle won the 2011 lifetime achievement award, schooled ’em on how it’s done with class in the singing department and still managed to look like the belle of the ball. Teach us, Ms. Patti,  teach us!!!

^Marsha narrowly made it onto the best dressed list. I appreciate the fact that she lost a lot of weight and looks fantastic but I wish this sequined maxi dress of hers were two to three inches longer, either that or she needed to have adjusted it by pulling it down or something. + Those shoes are a wrong fit and wrong for this outfit but other than that she looked great.

AND THE BAD FASHION IDEAS ON THE BLACK CARPET…

This Herve Leger frock did Mary wrong and vice versa.

Herve Leger did nothing for Nene either. It’s called the ‘body-con’ look for a reason.

Prom Season is still on? Come on people it’s almost July. You should have all graduated by now.

No comment.

Yeah lady, you shouldn’t have…

It’s the BET awards Rocsi, not carnival de Rio.

Ashanti almost got it right but the fabric is questionable and it is revealing things that would mar even the best of Parisian Couture.

Ms. CeCe Peniston how can we respect you when you dress like this?

Why bring all your gadgets along with you on the green carpet? Leave that stuff in the car, alarm it and be done with it. + Ladies, don’t wear all your gold jewellery pieces all at once, you’ll look freaky.

Why?

Why?

WORST IDEAS ON THE GREEN CARPET

Malaika Arora-Khan

We love Malaika but even our love can’t save this poor choice of an outfit from fizzling on a global stage. It’s ghastly.

Genelia D'Souza

She followed Malaika with this very boring colour and it didn’t do much for her either. Alexander McQueen clutch or not, this look is a NO-NO.

Lisa Ray

That necklace does not belong anywhere near this outfit Lisa, the dress is just too easy-breezy for such a statement necklace and what is up with the shoes? We expected more from you.

The Fashion Conscious Continue Their Love Affair with the All Black Look this Summer…Fashionwidget Runs Through the DOs and DON’Ts

DO

Accentuate your hourglass figure with a form-fitting all black frock

Play up the glamour with gold accents and accessories

DO

Pair a daring LBD with opaque stockings and open-toe heels like Heidi Klum, normally the blending of hosiery into footwear fails on most people (especially people with shorter legs) but Klum pulls it off effortlessly here, as she does have legs for miles.

DO

Add a little edge by experimenting with the Mens Wear Look

Statement Necklace

Offset your all black look with another colour that quietly enhances the effect (i.e. like the black and white skyline t-shirt Cate Blanchett is wearing here) rather than take away from it

DO

A Flattering Silhouette

Excellent Fabric

Pick the perfect shade of black

Glam it up with the perfect coif, red lips and nails

DO

Pick the perfect LBD

Accentuate the Waistline

Wear Statement Shoes Paired with Your All-Black Look

DON’T

Dress like a kid unless you are one, very few adults can pull off the baby doll look

Wear Stocking or Boots that cut off where your skirt or shorts meet at your knees unless you’re extremely leggy. This look tends to make the legs look short, stoutish and off.

Wear shoes that camouflage with your hosiery, what’s the point?

DON’T

Forget to look  in a mirror  (preferably a full length looking-glass) before you venture out to your event after dressing up

Extreme Glam

Wear too many accessories

Wear too many shades or material of one colour at once, even the thought of this clashes, talk less of the look

DON’T

Wear a dress so short and tight that you have a wardrobe malfunction upon attempting to sit down in front of eager shutter bugs who will sell your fashion faux pas to every magazine and tabloid in town. Poor Kim. Fashionwidget  has selected the most decent of all the shots taken of her accidentally showing off her panties on the set of Project Runway in NYC earlier today.

MUM-TO-BE

The couple (seen here during a recent visit to Rome) got married in April of 2007 are said to be expecting their first child. The news was confirmed by Aishwarya’s father-in-law, veteran Indian actor Amitabh Bachchan via his Official Twitter account yesterday. We wish the entire Bachchan family congratulations and Godspeed to Aishwarya as she embarks on her journey into motherhood.

The 2011 Critics’ Choice Television Awards – What Worked and What Did NOT

HOW TO SUIT UP

In case you were wondering, this is how it’s done. Thank you Wilmer Valderrama and John Salley. A+

Too cool for his shoes. Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Scott Bakula. A+

HOW “NOT” TO SUIT UP

Jane Lynch. The blue lacy blouse is too distracting, the blazer is too shiny and the shoes are awkward. GLEE is a very successful show, please dress the part.

CLASSIC CLEAN LOOKS

(Note: Please hover your cursor over each picture to read the captions)

Anna Torv might have been playing it safe because of the cut-out waist definition in her dress but she should have experimented with the shoes. It’s summer, come on! Take a risk. Anyhow, we still loved it.

STATEMENT LOOKS WE LOVED

LBDs

AND WHAT JUST DID NOT WORK OUT

If you blink you might not even see that there is a dress here because it blends too much with her complexion. The shoes are too bulky and look like they belong in a jeans pairing or with a longer dress. The clutch does not help much either. Better luck next time Mirielle Enos.

The fact that Kaley Cuoco went to great lengths to pose in such a way that ensures that we see that this is a jumpsuit tells us that even she knows something is wrong here. Love her hairstyle and the top portion of the outfit though.

Kyle Richards, this dress looks like a wardrobe malfuction waiting to happen.
