2013 NAACP Image Awards Red Carpet Round Up

2013 NAACP Image Awards Red Carpet Round Up

Here are a few looks I missed from the 2013 NAACP Image Awards which took place on Friday evening at the Shrine Auditorium in California.

Tatyana Ali: The gorgeous actress, who will always be Ashley Banks in my eyes, wore a beautiful printed cowl-back gown by Kevan Hall. The amethyst Rococo-print silk charmeuse gown was styled with a Lauren Merkin reptilian clutch and Mikimoto jewels. Curled hair and a berry lip colour completed her look.

Sandra Oh: Sporting tight curly tresses, the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star looked stunning wearing a forest-green vintage Halston draped gown with an open back and leather waistband accent. A selection of gold and silver link-chain bracelets, rings and a black glitter clutch accessorized her look.

Meagan Good: The actress looked very, very good wearing a Catherine Malandrino Fall 2012 gown from the designer’s Black Label collection. Her dark-violet one-sleeved gown, with a light ruffle cascading from the knotted waist, was one of the more vibrant looks to take to the red carpet. Barely-there makeup and silver glitter heels provided the finishing touches.

Meagan is the best of the three in my eyes. The colour is so hypnotic.

Halle Berry Catherine Malandrino – ‘Cloud Atlas’ Moscow Premiere

It was yet another tight black dress for Halle Berry who took to the red carpet last night on a cold night in Russia, for the ‘Cloud Atlas’ Moscow premiere held at the Oktyabr Cinema Hall.

The actress stuck to her ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ rule of red-carpet dressing by wearing an uber-sexy Catherine Malandrino dress.

Her black leather dress with sheer sleeves and sheer panels was styled with black pumps.

I’m rolling my eyes but admiring how amazing she looks at the same time.

This dress appears to be made for her.

Black earrings and a large cocktail ring completed her look.

Katie Aselton In Catherine Malandrino – ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ and ‘The League’ Screening

Katie Aselton attended the premiere screening of FX’s ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ Season 8 and ‘The League’ Season 4 at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California, last week.

The actress wore a Catherine Malandrino Fall 2012 smoked gold lame vintage-inspired wrap gown which draped beautifully.

She styled her classic gown with Neil Lane archived Grace Kelly vintage jewels and Jean Michael Cazabat black-and-gold criss-cross sandals.

Adding even more drama to her look, she added a red hot lip colour.

Mary J Blige In Catherine Malandrino – ‘Rock Of Ages’ London Premiere

Mary J Blige joined Malin Akerman and Julianne Hough on the red carpet this evening for the ‘Rock Of Ages’ London premiere, held at the Odeon Leicester Square.

I’m so glad Mary had a chance to redeem herself following the unflattering dress she wore to the LA premiere.

On this occasion she wore a another dress designed by her BFF Catherine Malandrino, but with better results.

The Fall 2012 black leather dress with sheer and mesh panels was styled with two Eddie Bargo alternating pave cone bracelets.

She kept half of the rolled hairstyle she sported in LA, plus she also wore the same Barbara Bui sandals.

A nude lip colour and another pair of statement earrings completed her look.

Much improved or more of the same?

Mary J Blige In Catherine Malandrino – ‘Rock Of Ages’ LA Premiere

Mary J Blige joined her cast-mates on the red carpet yesterday evening for the ‘Rock Of Ages’ world premiere, held at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California.

I love Mary. I feel like I have done all my life, but this Catherine Malandrino Fall 2012 dress with asymmetrical cuts is unforgiving making her look lumpy in all the wrong places.

The dress appears to be too tight because of the ruched detailing (or maybe it’s just too tight), plus I find the necklace to be very unnecessary.

Her statement earrings, her Barbara Bui snakeskin wooden heels and 40s hairstyle are the only things I like about this look.

Lucy Hale In Catherine Malandrino – 2012 MTV Movie Awards

Lucy Hale attended the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, on Sunday evening.

The ‘Pretty Little Liars’ actress opted for a Catherine Malandrino colour-block look.

Her silk halter dress featuring a coral top, a cobalt sash and a tulip-shaped pleated, draped teal skirt is a pretty, colourful look for the young star.

Silver accessories including a glittery Edie Parker clutch and Casadei triple-stacked pumps accessorized her look.

Wavy side-swept curls, a selection of silver Swarovski jewels and flawless makeup provided the finishing touches.

The only disappointing thing about this look is the creased skirt.

Jennifer Lopez In Catherine Malandrino – ‘American Idol’ Season 11 Top 7 Live Performance

Jennifer Lopez must have had Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson and most of the male viewers’ eyes popping out of their heads when the diva walked on stage for the ‘American Idol’ top 7 live performance show last night.

For some reason I can hear LMFAO’s ‘Sexy and I Know It’ playing in my internal jukebox, because the diva is exuding sexy from her every pore wearing this Catherine Malandrino Fall 2012 dress.

Some might say that this dress is too sexy for early evening TV, but my response to that is you can’t keep a true diva down.

This black leather long-sleeved dress with horizontal cut-outs is JLo personified.

It’s an honour to see her work her magic.

Christian Louboutin black spiked pumps and a half up, half down hairstyle completed her look.

Jada Pinkett Smith In Catherine Malandrino – 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards

Jada Pinkett Smith looked ridiculous at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday afternoon.

Mrs Obama looked her age, whereas Jada was trying to blend in with her kids who also attended.

She wore a Catherine Malandrino jumpsuit with a cropped denim jacket, Kimberly McDonald necklaces and open-toe wedges.

Her hair is what kills this look. I mean, what was she thinking?
