“Jumping The Broom” LA Premiere

Going through the pictures from the “Jumping The Broom” LA Premiere, I found myself slightly confused.

It appears that some of the attendees were either way too overdressed or just beyond casual and that definitely made for some interesting looks.

Paula Patton: Looking every inch the star of this movie, Paula looked beautiful wearing a Moschino mini with gold embellished details around the neck and hemline. She has great legs and this dress showcases them perfectly. Brian Atwood gold pumps completed her look.

Angela Basset: It’s not her best look, but the colour of her Mandalay chiffon one-shoulder aqua blue dress with jeweled trim is beautiful. I would’ve preferred this look to be a little bit longer.

Eva Marcille: I’m not 100% sold on this look which includes a One by printed dress. I don’t hate it, but I feel like there are too many accessories. She should have left the clutch in the limo.

Teyana Taylor: The blue YSL Palais pumps do all the talking with this look.

Chelsie Hightower: It’s cute…way too cute. The cut-outs and bows are a tad OTT for my tastes but I guess it fits with her personality. Paris Hilton would love this dress.

Tracey Edmonds: Her shape is amazing in this Herve Leger but it just looks a tad too tight, plus I think we’ve seen her in this a few times before.

Julie Bowen: The whole look just feels very limp like not much effort went into it. Sergio Rossi pumps complete this blah look.

Megan Good: Opted for a hot pink dress with a side split which seems very out of tune with what everyone else wore at this event.

Tasha Smith: I like this look; she looks springtime chic and the detail of the dress is pretty. This is a great colour palette for her skin tone.

For me, there were very few if any standouts at this premiere. I think people played it too safe, too casual or tried too hard. Hopefully, there’s a New York premiere and they can give it another go.

    It’s a shame that Megan’s formality wasn’t matched by her co-stars because this is the best she’s looked on a red carpet in ages.

      I know, right?! I can’t even remember the last time I saw her not wearing leggings, denim cutoffs, a black leather jacket, or heavy boots. Shame, since I think she’s such a cute girl.

    The only person who looks good here to me is Paula Patton.
    Angela Bassett-the shape of the dress is not flattering.
    Eva – overaccessorized.
    Teyana-hate the shoes
    Chelsea-too barbie doll like and the fit is not flattering
    tracey-wish the dress was a little longer to cover her knees
    Julie-hair and makeup need polish
    meagan – don’t like the lip color on her
    Tasha-don’t like the hairstyle on her or the neckline

    The biggest problem with Eva’s dress is the belt and the earrings.
    I like Megan’s gown, but she’s overdressed.
    That pink dress Chelsie has on is a little ridiculous.
    I thought that the mohawk shoes were ugly before. Now, I KNOW that they’re ugly.
    Angela Bassett looked the best to me. Her dress is beautiful, but I’m the opposite. I wish that she had worn higher heels and a higher hemline.

    Tracey Edmonds looks smokin! If I look like that at her age and after having children i’m wearing that same dress everyday!

    holy waistin’ smokes! i don’t know who tracey edmonds is, but she has one fantastic figure lolol

    Meagan needs to stand up straighter. I don’t like Tasha’s wig/weave, but I do think she looks great otherwise. I loved Paula’s look, but I don’t think centre parts do her any favours. Angela disappointed me. Eva needs to lose the earrings STAT!

    I really love Julie Bowen’s dress, her body is so shapeless I wonder if someone else with some “oomph” could hve done it justice?

    I don’t usually like print formalwear as much as I like Eva’s, but it really appeals to me. Granted, she looks more like she’s going to church than premiering a movie, but I still like the appearance. Teyana’s statement shoes aren’t my favorites, but she wears them well, and I’m totally with you on Chelsie and Tracey.

    does Tracey Edmonds have a stake in herve leger?

    • Fashion Critic May 5, 2011 at 18:21 #

      I would have to say yes

      • Mattison May 6, 2011 at 03:57 #

        Looks like her and the Kardashians are at all the shareholders meetings fighting to see who gets to wear what first.

        • Fashion Critic May 6, 2011 at 10:52 #

          lol…I can actually picture that
