Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Black Girls Rock! 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a round up to the rest of the looks from the Black Girls Rock! event, which was held at New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday, October 26, 2013 to honour legendary singer Patti Labelle.

Kelly Rowland: The singer is never one to shy away from a (strategically) revealing ensemble, and with this Alon Livne Fall 2013 jumpsuit, you get just that. The embellishments and half-sleeves on top gave way to a sheer pant silhouette on bottom. To finish, she wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Christian Louboutin heels.

Tatyana Ali: The actress went the glamorous route in a white Michael Costello fishtail gown, which boasted a dramatic rosette detail at the shoulder, a subtle geometric cutout at the midriff, and a metal-plated B-Low the Belt ‘Vanity’ belt at the waist. Her look was completed with a soft updo, red lips, and Erickson Beamon jewelry.

Keke Palmer: Opting for something elegant and just a little bit celestial, the actress wore a black sparkle Novis ‘Dovima’ gown. Her loose curls, flawless make-up, and minimal accessories were the appropriate complement to such an eye-catching dress.

Keke Palmer joined in the fun on the orange carpet at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in LA on Saturday afternoon.

She opted to wear a Marco Marco purple strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline and a detailed skirt.

Keke accessorized with a striped Judith Leiber clutch, gold Neil Lane jewels and black Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps.

A side-swept braided ponytail and a pretty pink lip colour completed her look.

Normally at this point I would be complaining about her shoe choice, but my real problem with this look is the dress.

It looks really cheap and the detailing around the bust is highly unflattering. I am astounded that this dress was custom-made for her.

Keke can do so much better than this.

Keke Palmer was glowing on the red carpet at the 2012 NAACP Image Awards, held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA last night.

She took home the ‘Outstanding Performance in a Youth/Children’s Program (Series or Special)’ award for her role in ‘True Jackson, VP’.

She looked gorgeous wearing a Naven strapless gown with a flowing train.

Her vibrant neon pink strapless gown was teamed with Neil Lane jewels, gold Stuart Weiztman heels and a Judith Leiber clutch.

A chic updo, kolh rimmed eyes and a dark berry lip shade completed her look.

Keke Palmer has never met a mini dress she didn’t like, and who can blame her with those legs?

The teen actress joined Gabrielle Union and Jennifer Hudson on the red carpet at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome for the LA premiere of ‘Think Like A Man’.

She donned a Guishem Fall 2011 dress.

Her sassy one-shoulder dress with a metallic embossed detail at the shoulder and python detail at the waist was teamed with tres simple black pumps.

A pair of black snakeskin sandals would’ve lifted this look somewhat, but she looks beautiful nonetheless.

Wavy hair, dark pink shimmering lips and a large multi-coloured gemstone cocktail ring completed her look.

Back in October last year, Taylor Swift did the unthinkable and wore a dress without a single sequin.

Whilst attending the Tennessee launch of her new fragrance, ‘Wonderstruck’, she wore a Ted Baker ‘Marui’ dress with a beautiful chandelier print.

The dress was teamed with tights and pumps and styled with her signature bright lips and wavy hair.

Keke Palmer wore the same dress last month when she visited Planet Hollywood on Times Square in New York.

I prefer her beige ankle-strap pumps and her overall more flirty nature in this dress, so she wins for me.

The 2011 BET Awards was held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA yesterday.

Kerry Washington: The actress wore an acid green Michael Kors column gown. I love the colour which is perfect for this red carpet on a sunny day. With that in mind I have to ask, “why black pumps?” Gold strappy sandals would’ve worked so much better to complement her Kotur clutch, belt, gold Lana jewelry and the halter ring detail. I will never understand her decision to opt for black pumps on this occasion.

Keri Hilson: Whilst Kerry opted for a summery look, Keri’s had a Fall feel to it. The singer wore a bicolour Tibi purple and black strapless jumpsuit with black open-toe sandals. She accessorized with gold sculptural Ann Taylor cuffs, a Judith Leiber ‘Ridged Rectangle’ leopard printed haircalf minaudière, a Carla Amorim ring and a gold necklace with a green pendant.

Alicia Keys: The singer opted for zebra print Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps to match her monochromatic Dolce & Gabbana look. Wilfredo Rosado fine jewelry and a fishtail plait completed her look.

Keke Palmer: I’m not quite sure how Mandalay continues to get away with ripping off other designers. Keke’s silver paneled dress is a total rip off from a Balmain Fall 2009 dress.

Kelly Rowland: The UK X Factor judge opted for a Notte by Marchesa fuchsia dress with a cascading ruffle detail which we’ve seen a few times on the red carpet. Her beautiful dress was paired with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Bisson’ heels.

Nicki Minaj: Of all looks at this event, Nicki was the one that made me itch the most. The singer wore a Mark Fast knit dress, with thick tights and black booties in that searing heat?
