Runway To 2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors Show – Ashanti In Louis Vuitton

Def Jam’s 25th anniversary celebration brought out an all-star lineup of artists who performed at the recent Vh1’s Hip Hop Honors.

Ashanti had an on-stage reunion with Ja Rule as they performed a medley of their hits “Down For You” and “Always On Time”.

She took to the stage wearing lace skin-tight pants, Givenchy Western platform sandals and a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 blazer.

The camel and black ruched blazer has a ruffle collar which stood up on the runway.

Unlike some crazy artists who are shaving one-side of their heads, Ashanti wisely decided to braid hers.

My hairstylist told me that many girls go to her salon asking for a Cassie do, and each time she refuses to do it.

I would do exactly the same. It’s a ridiculous trend.

    Unfortunately the hair isn’t the only ridiculous thing about this look.

    I didn’t like the hair, outfit, performance…..nothing.

    I think I would need to see this on someone else. Didn’t work for me on Ashanti.

    Tell your hairstylist he/she is amazing and I’m fan just for that. That hairstyle is absolutely ridiculous even on Cassie as she comes off an wanna be edgy, but failing whilst doing so. With that being said, that is still a terrible hairstyle on Ashanti, Unless you are under 10 years old and living in 90s, you shouldn’t braid your hair that way.

    I like the hairstyle it reminds me of Salt ‘n’ pepa back in the day. I was not allowed to shave off the side of my head so I use to braid the side. I like the outfit.

    Hi FC :) Lara Dutta (Bollywood actress) also wore this jacket to an LV store opening in Dubai – for a WWIB poll :)
