Ashanti In Stella McCartney – A&E Networks 2013 Upfront

Ashanti In Stella McCartney - A&E Networks 2013 Upfront

Ashanti attended the A&E Networks 2013 Upfront event held at the Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening alongside Chloe Sevigny.

By now we have seen these Stella McCartney ‘Miracle’ dresses in several colours and lengths, but in celebville they’re just not getting old.

I will give Ashanti some credit for trying to freshen up the well-worn dress by adding leather sleeves to the look, but I am more distracted by her oversized jewelry.

Black Alaia sandals, which we recently saw on Jennifer Meyer, completed Ashanti’s look.

Do you like how Ashanti made this look her own with the leather sleeves?

You may remember that Kristen Stewart wore this same dress, sans leather sleeves, last year.

Ashanti In Balmain & Givenchy – MTV Studios

Ashanti in Balmain & Givenchy MTV Studios

Ashanti was spotted outside MTV Studios in New York City this week prior to her interview on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz to promote Lifetime’s hit drama ‘Army Wives’.

As we’ve seen earlier in the week, black and white is on trend.

Sadly, Ashanti took things a little too far.

Her high-end labelled look featured a Balmain long-sleeved baseball top, which she paired with Balmain jersey harem pants and Givenchy check-embossed lace-up booties.

While individually – excluding the MC Hammer pants – these pieces would work with solid separates, together….well just look at it. It’s an assault on the eyes.

Check, floral, and stripe prints? There is just too much going on. Even Solange Knowles would say “hell, no” to this heavily printed look.

It took a lot of money to look this bad.

6th Annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala

Here are the rest of the looks from the 6th Annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala, which took place in New York City last night.

Ashanti: The singer looked beautiful wearing a beaded gown with chiffon skirt. She sported ombre hair, which doesn’t offend – surprisingly, and a selection of bracelets plus a silver clutch completed her look.

Byrdie Bell: The actress and model looked statuesque wearing a Christian Siriano Spring 2012 look. It’s surprising that a striped t-shirt and chartreuse maxi skirt can look so chic together. The only downside for me is the black belt. I wish she had kept the runway yellow belt.

Anja Rubik: The supermodel graced the red carpet wearing an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2012 gown. The black-and-nude silk chiffon gown with feather detailing is stunning. I would love to still see this on a celebrity to see how they interpret the look. Giuseppe Zanotti lace-up black sandals completed her look.

Ashanti In A.L.C & Rag & Bone – Power 99 iHeartRadio Theater

Ashanti visited the Power 99 iHeartRadio Theater in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania yesterday.

The was there to premiere her new single ‘The Woman You Love’.

She sported a very spring-like look pairing a pink shirt with skinny airbrushed Rag & Bone jeans and an A.L.C ‘Zoe’ blazer mint collarless blazer with a mock black lapel.

Christian Louboutin nude platform peep-toes completed the look.

You have to wonder what the thought process was when putting together this look.

I mean, it looks like she’s going golfing.

Who Wore Notte by Marchesa Better? Ashanti or Kelly Rowland

Ashanti chose this pretty pink Notte by Marchesa dress to attend the launch of the “2BHAPPY” jewelry collection in New York back in November 2010.

The sleeveless fuchsia dress features a gorgeous ruffled trim draped along the body.

The singer accessorized with black diamond encrusted ankle-strap heels and “2BHAPPY” jewelry, including an oversized pink heart shaped cocktail ring and rows of bracelets in assorted metals.

Ashanti finished her look by styling her blonde-streaked hair in soft waves and wearing brown and gold smoky eye-shadow.

Kelly Rowland wore the same dress to attend the 2011 BET Awards back in June.

The singer paired her look with diamond hooped earrings and bracelets and nude cut-out sandals.

Kelly chose to wear her hair in a sleek up-do with side swept bangs and don light pink lipstick.

Whilst I prefer Ashanti’s hairstyle and shoes, Kelly is definitely getting my vote as I think the dress fits her body much better. I also like her diamond accessories better than Ashanti’s as they’re much more elegant and complement the dress better. Ashanti’s feel a little too costume-y for my liking.

Who Wore Issa Better? Ashanti or Katy Perry

Ashanti attended the 2010 Princess Grace Awards Gala in New York City back in November looking sassy wearing an Issa Fall 2010 one shoulder dress with a selection of rings and dark nail polish.

I really like the dress on her, but I’m not crazy about her blonde highlights.

Katy Perry wore the same embellished print dress to the 2nd Annual “Change Begins Within” benefit which was also held in New York City.

The singer swept her hair to one side and only added a silver bracelet to her look.

Ashanti wins for me as I loved the copper and silver print against her skin-tone.

Unfortunately I’ve never liked this dress on Katy and it still hasn’t grown on me.
