Mary J Blige hit the red carpet last night for VH1’s Divas Celebrate Soul event at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

The divas paid tribute to the great cities of soul music: Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, London and Memphis.

I’m thankful she wore Michael Kors because she always looks her best when she dons his designs.

On this occasion she wore a Michael Kors Fall 2011 one-shoulder nude jersey gown which was decorated with crystal embroidery.

Mary also wore a fur jacket on the red carpet to perfect her divalicious look.

An asymmetrical bob with blunt bangs and glossy lips provided the finishing touches.

If this dress is looking very familiar to you, that’s because Gwyneth Paltrow wore a similar dress from the same collection to the Vanity Fair Oscar party earlier this year.

For one of her performances Mary wore an Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 tweed jacket.

The fur-trimmed jacket is an exquisite example of tough-luxe, with its strong shoulders, multiple zipper details and a peplum waist.

Leather pants and over-the-knee boots completed her look.
