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?

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.

Teach Us Halle, TEACH US!!! Halle Berry Re-defines LBD in a Cut-Out Midi

WOW!

WHO: Halle Berry

WHAT: FiFi Awards at The Tent at Lincoln Center

WHEN: May 24th, 2011

WHERE: New York City

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Okay, what is happening? What’s happening? This woman is turning 45 in August yet she looks like she will be turning 25. Normally, I would be the first person to be shouting “dress according to your age!!!” to any woman over forty wearing a freakum dress but if you’re 44 yet you look 24, please by all means flaunt it to anyone and everyone who would look and if you’re Halle Berry, you definitely will not have any problems in that arena. God blessed you Halle and may God continue to bless you, AMEN. A+

Joan Smalls…We Love Her Style – Fashionwidget Helps You GET THE LOOK

LBD

WHO: Joan Smalls

WHAT:  Whitney Art Party: The Ground-breakers at Highline Stages

WHEN: May 24th 2011

WHERE: New York City

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: She gets it, she really does.  Pairing her shimmering sequins black mini little black dress with ankle-strap stilettos and a not too fussy clutch is a very classic New York City classy club scene look. Normally, I don’t like bump-it coifs but the hairstyle completes her look perfectly. A+

NYC Sidewalk Style with Solange Knowles – GET THE LOOK

SOLANGE STYLISTA

WHO: Solange Knowles

WHAT: Sidewalk Style – Monoi Repairing Collection launch at Sephora

WHEN: May 24th, 2011

WHERE: New York City, NY

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: Yes we do admit that Solange’s style is a bit of an acquired taste for most… but we absolutely love what we see here. With yellow being a very jealous colour, it’s easy for more than one shade paired together to clash and become a fashion disaster but we’re happy to report that is not the case here. Solange got it just right. Simply Chic. A
