More Proof Kelis Was “GAGA” Before Gaga

FASHION FORWARD

Kelis

Kelis

Fashionwidget Verdict:Let’s face it, we’ve known Kelis for a very long time and she has always been and dressed like this. Looking comfortably chic in her sequined skeleton outfit , a Spiky black  fascinator and sequined golden pumps while performing at Victoria Park this weekend, the diva proved once again that she won’t be giving up her unique style for anyone. Go on girl!

Battle of the Summertime Belles: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Elie Saab vs Monica Bellucci in Dolce & Gabbana

PEACHY KEEN

Hippodrome de Chantilly for Longines –  Chantilly, France. June 11th 2011

WHO: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan and Monica Bellucci

WHEN: June 11th & 12th 2011

WHERE: Chantilly, France & Taormina, Italy

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: We’re wondering if these two women called each other up and one said to the other “let’s trend peach coloured lacy beaded sequins summer frocks…GLOBALLY” or was it sheer coincidence that two of the most beautiful women on the planet would show up at two separate events in Europe in similar looking dresses? Any way you slice it, they both look fantastic. 37 and 47 never looked so stylishly good. B+
