There’s only so much black a person can wear on the red carpet before I start to lose interest in them.

Mary J Blige was has been wearing a lot of black lately, so I was relieved to see her wearing this bright red asymmetrical Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 jersey dress to the “Essence Black Women In Music Event”.

The singer looked the best she has a in long while pairing her dress with a black studded Burberry Prorsum clutch and some sexy strappy sandals.

Taraji P. Henson wore a figure hugging Bodyamr LBD with a ruffled neckline and a plunging sheer panel, whilst carrying a Perrin Paris 1893 “Je Te Tiens” clutch and wearing Giuseppe Zanotti heels with a red platform.
