Mary J Blige In Marc Bouwer – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Questions My Love For Leopard Print Award
At the 2011 Billboard Music Awards Mary J Blige made me question my love of leopard print.

I have always been a fan of leopard print, but this dress is screaming to go back into the wild.

I don’t like the solid panels with the print and I really don’t like the high neckline.

Mary can pull of most looks, but this look is overwhelming her from the print, to the neckline to the bold shoulders.

    You’re right the neckline is too much.

    The entire thing looks hot. Las Vegas in a high collar? Not so much.

    Chop it off at the knee, open up the neckline.

    Worst dressed of the night.

    The model looked fierce though. I guess Mary couldn’t pull it off.

    You know what, I agree with the over powering head to toe leopard print, but don’t you think the black side panels slims her right down? Slimmest she’s looked in a frock in a while!

      You are right…it does make her appear slimmer

    The model pulls it off because she is tall and angular, Mary J just is not able to wear this dress, bad decision. Not her best look I’m afraid.

    I too love leopard print!! I also love Mary J but this look is really bad. It just looks trashy & cheap and the sleeves are doing it no favors. I think these sleeves are hard to pull off.

      Agree – you need to stand with arms down by your sides like the model for them to work. Definitely not hands on hips.

    This gown is uggo. Mary J has a great figure, and this gown helps it, but nothing more.

    the hair is bad and that dress words can not describ just how horrible that dress is.

    I actually like the gown. I would love it if the neckline were a low V.
    The I Dream of Jeannie hair and heavy bangs don’t really help.

    All wrong.

    The black side panels are what kills it for me. I wouldn’t love it as is, but the black just ruins it.

    OMGGG… she look so fat!!!
