Ashanti In Michael Costello – 2014 BET Awards

Ashanti In Michael Costello - 2014 BET Awards

Ashanti hit the red carpet of the 2014 BET Awards last night (June 29) at the Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles.

The singer opted for a long-sleeved, white, lace-embellished Michael Costello gown and black and gold Tom Ford shoes.

The dress is beautiful, and right on trend, and while it looked flawless from the waist down on Ashanti’s hourglass figure, I just can’t get past the cut-outs on the top.

This type of cut-out really only works on someone small-busted, and Ashanti’s cleavage looks like it could escape at any moment.

Side-parted blonde waves and subtle but flawless makeup take an old Hollywood approach, which Ashanti would have nailed if it weren’t for the bosom situation.

    Trashy and cheap are the only words I have to describe this. I’m not a fan of her hair blond either.

      Tacky beyond belief…

        Gah!!! My eyes! Someone please make Michael Costello stop! Between him dressing Ashanti, and Paris for this event, and some of the folks for the “Wedding that shall not be named”, he’s becoming the Designer Du jour of the trashy, cheap-looking dress.

        That’s a shame too, since some of his stuff is really beautiful. But this proves because you can doesn’t EVER mean you should!

        +1 I can’t stand the hair the boobage….I mean really? NO NO NO

  2. kane June 30, 2014 at 13:10 #

    This leaves me speechless (which is the nicest thing I can say about this look).

  3. AB June 30, 2014 at 13:19 #

    An attention seeking tacky look.

  4. AW June 30, 2014 at 13:20 #

    Michael Costello’s designs are just generally tacky.

    This look was even worse live on the red carpet and that wig isn’t fooling anybody honey,

    The entire look is a NO.

  5. Christine June 30, 2014 at 13:22 #

    Oh dear no…..

    Everything is wrong here

  6. john June 30, 2014 at 13:28 #

    take off the sleeves and suddenly this is a bad to the bone dress…the sleeves make it look bad

  7. dee June 30, 2014 at 13:33 #

    Awful from h2t. Ashanti always looks tacky. Blonde hair does not suit her.

  8. Britta June 30, 2014 at 13:55 #

    Fifty shades of wrong, wrong, wrong!

    • Alina June 30, 2014 at 14:15 #

      lol. You’re right.

  9. Peony June 30, 2014 at 13:55 #

    Tack-o-rama. Ugh, so bad.

  10. Leo June 30, 2014 at 14:07 #

    MichaeL Costello has been serving some beautiful “diva realness” with his dresses but this is just turning up the volume and going all the way to tacky station. And it’s not even fun tacky, it’s just plain ol’ bad taste.

  11. Rebecca Z June 30, 2014 at 14:44 #

    Way too much info here. The most disturbing part is that she seems to think it looks good.

  12. julyol1972 June 30, 2014 at 15:25 #

    Ashanti – the reason why the “get a grip, girl” friend was invented. Evidently, she has none.

  13. Joy June 30, 2014 at 16:19 #

    Seriously? This look leaves me exhausted. Absolutely ridiculous.

  14. Marcel June 30, 2014 at 16:21 #

    EEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWW….. Girlfriend ,where did you have your mind ????? Are you taking your pills ? You need help.

  15. sophie June 30, 2014 at 18:00 #

    I agree with the folks before me- tacky.

  16. Larissa June 30, 2014 at 18:25 #

    “Tacky” doesn’t even begin to cover it. The hair make the look even worse,I don’t understand why olive-skinned celebrities keep showing this unnatural hair colour which does nothing for them.

  17. magan June 30, 2014 at 18:38 #

    Horror from head to toe.

  18. amy June 30, 2014 at 18:39 #

    waist down: quite nice
    waist up: awful. And don’t even get me started on the blonde do

  19. Yeliz June 30, 2014 at 18:55 #

    One of the worst, tackiest and most attention-seeking looks I have ever seen.

  20. Dhppy June 30, 2014 at 19:16 #

    If you have cutouts on the side then that should suffice, there is no need for a gigantic cutout at the center.

  21. Phoenix June 30, 2014 at 21:17 #

    This is the tackiest out of the bunch for this event. Kinda surprised she went out like this.

  22. Alex V July 1, 2014 at 00:12 #

    wasnt this the same dress Paris Hilton wore?

  23. Prudence July 1, 2014 at 00:18 #

    Please consider banning her from this website. She is beyond vulgar.

    • moonbeam July 1, 2014 at 01:23 #

      get over yourself.

      • Prudence July 1, 2014 at 01:40 #

        Girl what do you want……………

  24. Hadiya W July 1, 2014 at 00:45 #

    Am I the only one who believes she trying to re-create Beyoncé at the Grammys?

    • Hadiya W July 1, 2014 at 00:46 #

      *she’s

  25. simply amazed July 2, 2014 at 19:11 #

    I think she look absolutely stunning and it appear people are afraid to have a HONEST opinion against the web master. It was a PERFECT summer look for a red carpet event to the BET awards, Michael Costello had many dresses that where just as flawless…the only people complaining I guarantee you are the people who are fit enough to wear it…they were so many more bad to worse looks…

    Karruechan tran looked like an dirty octopus trying to escape a licked envelope..
    Zendaya looked a hot mess..there are no words
