Jennifer Nettles In Edition by Georges Chakra – 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Jennifer Nettles In Edition by Georges Chakra - 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Jennifer Nettles returned to the red (ahem, blue) carpet of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, hosted this evening at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

For her presenter duties, the Sugarland singer and new mom selected an Edition by Georges Chakra Spring 2013 gown.

This figure-hugging, cotton-candy-pink creation probably would not have been my first pick for her to make her svelte and glowing return. The gown’s pastel hue is a hard one to manage and, when photographed, it gave off a satin sheen that I didn’t love.

As for the glitzy sequin embellishment, it all translated as a bit too garish for my taste. Actually, it sent me straight to pageant-land.

A Swarovski clutch, Casadei heels and gorgeous Norman Silverman chunky statement rings and earrings provided a final sparkling flourish.

    Ehhh…NO. My browser showed only the top half of her dress when I opened the page, and it looked like she was wearing a Lycra sports bra, but it got worse when I scrolled down! This looks like a prom dress nightmare from the 80s. It’s not as bad on the runway, because the material doesn’t appear as shiny and tacky (again, like Lycra) but that silver “waistband” and side embellishment are just too much.

    This dress looks cheesy and dated.

    I thought “prom” when I first saw it.

    Dated and cheap.

    I don’t like this gown at all, looks dated and her styling doesn’t make it any better.

    This is hideous, on and off the catwalk.

    EWWWWW.

    Was a piece added to the side in the bust area? It seems that way, and it throws things off for me. I imagine perhaps it was needed in order to preserve her modesty…

    Shiny, cheesy, dated. On the model it was better–and I get what they were going for–but it just…it’s too pageant.

  12. Moxie May 20, 2013 at 15:45 #

    Too much going on.
