41st NAACP Image Awards – Keri Hilson In Rami Kashou

Nice Dress, Boring Shoes Award Singer Keri Hilson wore all black at the 41st NAACP Image Awards on Friday night.

I love Keri's black flamenco style Rami Kashou dress with a huge rosette detail on the hip and ruffles cascading down the skirt.

It looks like a lot of work went into this dress, which is such a shame the Keri couldn't have been more imaginative with her shoe choice.

Black pumps...yawn. I think I once wore a safe pair of pumps like those to a job interview.

Strap on a pair of silver or black strappy sandals and have more fun.

The pumps numb me to this look which is a huge shame.

    BDOTW contender for sure

    she should have worn the Spring 2009 black Balmain crystal embellished heels

    i think it’s a little tacky

    • Michelle March 1, 2010 at 00:19 #

      I agree, but I find Keri tacky overall. Red carpet, sidewalk, on stage, plus the things that she says in interviews.

  4. Michal Lavi February 28, 2010 at 17:48 #

    I can’t believe you are commenting on her shoes when he dress is hanging off her nipples! The dress is beautiful but it should have been a bit higher up.

    • Fashion Critic February 28, 2010 at 18:00 #

      maybe that’s because I’m blogging every moment I can between shows and I could only focus on one thing.

      • Michal Lavi February 28, 2010 at 21:34 #

        LOL :)

  5. Nana February 28, 2010 at 17:49 #

    FC, I agree!
    and love Keke Palmer dress! Girl looks gorgeous!

  6. Elise February 28, 2010 at 17:56 #

    Her dress is awesome, I love the look even with the black boring shoes

  7. Natasa February 28, 2010 at 18:01 #

    This dress is gorgeous and very good looking on the Keri Hilson. Best dress for the best body.

  8. Ella February 28, 2010 at 18:04 #

    I agree! Nice dress, but shoes… OMG!

  9. Erik February 28, 2010 at 18:24 #

    I love the dress, and as you said the shoes are boring. Isn’t the dress my Christian Siriano? It look like his work though it doesnt have any colour..

  10. Eva February 28, 2010 at 18:51 #

    I love the dress and her hair is amazing too. Buy I have to agree with the boring shoes

  11. From Russia With Love February 28, 2010 at 18:54 #

    Hello Nina Ricci. Me no likey.

    • Fashion Critic February 28, 2010 at 20:38 #

      LOL…very cute

  12. Ksenia February 28, 2010 at 19:23 #

    This is too Beyonce for me. A bit trashy. Kerri should try out Gucci or Versace- they might fit her sexy style.

    • Tamia March 1, 2010 at 00:53 #

      lol,you try and tell not to be trasy by recommending the two trashiest brands around?!

      • Ksenia March 2, 2010 at 15:44 #

        Yes, Gucci and Versace have done trashy and they are known for their sexiness, but Versace and Gucci actually have classy pieces that are sexy. I think those brands would fit Kerri. And no, Versace and Gucci aren’t the trashiest brands around. Think BabyPhat or Guess.

  13. Camila February 28, 2010 at 19:31 #

    -Her Dress Is By Christian Siriano!!!!!!

    • Fashion Critic February 28, 2010 at 20:58 #

      thank you :)

      • Camila February 28, 2010 at 21:39 #

        your very welcome fc:)

      • Erik February 28, 2010 at 21:50 #

        Lol I already said that :’)

    • Jessica March 1, 2010 at 10:06 #

      Why give out the wrong information?

      • Fashion Critic March 1, 2010 at 10:32 #

        I don’t know, but I will just rely on my own knowledge from now on.

        Tips in comments can be helpful, but in this case it was a total disaster and quite embarrassing I have to say since Siriano had to take to twitter to say it wasn’t his dress.

  14. Catherine February 28, 2010 at 20:11 #

    You’re right. Fabulous dress, boring shoes.

  15. Teleholic March 1, 2010 at 01:31 #

    To me this look would’ve been perfect if the dress wasn’t, as Michael said “hanging off her nipples” and she wasn’t doing the Beyonce pose. I really don’t like that pose. And if only the dress had been a gorgeous yellow. So close. *sigh…*

  16. Dolce March 1, 2010 at 02:45 #

    Hi Catherine,

    Christian Siriano did not design the dress. He confirmed that on his Twitter.

    By the way, loving your tweets, I’m glad you’re having a great time attending all the shows. Paris next?

  17. James29621 March 1, 2010 at 03:06 #

    Dress is NOT by C.Siriano. Said do himself…

  18. zar March 1, 2010 at 04:20 #

    apparently Christian Siriano just tweeted that the dress is not his.hurm.

    • Fashion Critic March 1, 2010 at 08:24 #

      Thanks. My fault for trusting a tip without checking

  19. mm March 1, 2010 at 05:52 #

    I love the dress. I dont like her eye make up at all

  20. Alfredo March 1, 2010 at 07:44 #

    I’m really trying to like it since the creating is great, but she doesn’t do it justice. She looks like Rihanna during 2007 or so specially with the bob hair and the dark make up. I agree that it should be pulled up higher, someone can just step on the train and we can have a serious wardrobe malfunction. Plus there are absolutely no accessories. It falls flat.

    • Alfredo March 1, 2010 at 07:44 #

      Oh I meant creation

  21. robbie March 1, 2010 at 15:14 #

    surely she can afford a dress that fits her. one wrong move and nipples will be shown haha. its all boring.

  22. nadege July 27, 2010 at 14:40 #

    I love her dress so much, I think I’m going to have that dress on my wedding day hopefully.
