So I didn’t watch the Soul Train Awards on TV, but, I did take a gander at the red carpet photos on SoulTrain.com. I wanted to see if maybe, just maybe, the celebs decided to dress up for this event. Here is who ended up making my ::SM:: Best and Worst list! Check it Out:
BEST: Recording Artist Elle Varner, Singer Marsha Ambrosius, and (to my surprise) Rapper Lil Mama.
Elle did a great job on this one. The silhouette of the outfit worked great on her body shape, giving her the right amount of curve. The wine lip choice was a strong compliment to the black and white aztec print ensemble. “Femininity’s Edge” – The leather trimming and studded shoulder embellishments gave the outfit its toughness, while the softly curled hair and pale pink nail polish gave it a feminine touch. “I’ll bust the windows outcha car” (with a smile!)
Marsha also incorporated leather into her look, but kept it casual. The 3/4 sleeve fatigue shimmered leather baseball jacket looked great paired with the fitted leather skirt. Her outfit is reminiscent to something a Pink Lady would wear in the movie Grease! Doesn’t
Sandy … Marsha make you wanna be apart of her crew! haha. The contrasting red lip and voluminous hair definitely completed her look for the night. “I got chills, their multiplyin’!”
Lil Mama…oh lil mama. I think this is the FIRST time you have EVER made a list! hah. I think she was the only one that dressed up doe…? Maybe… she thought she was going to the Oscars…? None the less, she looks great! Kinda like Beyonce with the blonde top knot … but great! For once she doesn’t look like she’s trying to hard. I love how this outfit is all about the details. The bow like weave on the bust of the dress is amazing! The soft pleads drape effortlessly to the floor making it seem as if we should be saying “All hail Queen Lil Mama.” (or not?). I like how she kept her make-up and hair simple as to not to take away from the detailing in the dress. Your look is POPPIN girl!
WORST: Rapper MC Lyte, BET Networks Chairwoman and CEO Debra L. Lee, and Recording artist Melanie Fiona
Mc Lyte USUALLY looks good, however, I am not sure where she was going with this outfit on. This might have worked in the early 90’s but, not now. And those pants… WHAT IS THAT VELVET!?! Cute clutch doe.
CEO Debra. What. The. F&@K. Get a stylist.
Melanie like the Asians say at the nail shop… “Pick A Colla!”, that hair aint working. And Baptisms were last Sunday, please return the curtain drapes to your grandma house. You usually look good girl! Was it 4AM when you lost it?
So what do you think? Who made your BEST and WORST list?
