2009 Soul Train Awards

Keri Hilson looked stunning and statuesque wearing a Dolce & Gabbana satin ruched dress with a peek-a-boo lace panel.

I love her strappy black sandals.

She was one of the best dresses at this event.

Kelly Price opted for a super casual look of a black cold-shouldered top paired with jeans.

Tamia was by far my favourite at this event glowing in a coral asymmetrical belted dress, which she paired with nude heels an a gold clutch.

Deborah Cox opted for a silver studded look which really didn’t suit her.

I have one word for Keisha Knight Pulliam…WOW.

I will always see her as little Rudy Huxtable.

Melanie Fiona wore a cute silver dress with a lot of draping on the hips.

Her dress was paired with matching heels.

LeToya Luckett was predictable in Herve Leger.

Fantasia Barrino was another favourite wearing a simple black dress with gold Louis Vuitton Cancan heels.

Monica has seen far better days.

Her secretary meets rock chick look doesn’t work for me at all.

Who Wore Haute Hippie Better? LeToya Luckett or Natalie Cole

Former Destiny Child’s singer LeToya Luckett sparkled at her “Lady Love” Album Release Party back in August wearing a Haute Hippie sequin dress which she belted and paired with nude pumps.

59 year old singer Natalie Cole, looked as young as LeToya when she wore the same dress to the “2009 Angel Ball to Benefit Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation” in New York last week.

Despite the her dress being covered in sequins it was Natalie herself that sparkled, from her eyes to her smile so she wins for me.

Also this dress doesn’t need a belt. It looks better hanging loose.

Who Wore Balmain Better? Selita Ebanks or LeToya Luckett

Victoria’s Secret Angel Selita Ebanks was the first to wear this Balmain Fall 2008 dress back in March to the Valentino The Last Emperor New York Premiere.

She totally blew me away in her sexy zipper lace mini dress which she paired with Givenchy t-strap heels.

On Sunday night the former member of Destiny’s Child LeToya Luckett wore the same dress at the 2009 BET Awards, with a pair of sky-high Alejandro Ingelmo woven slingbacks.

Her dress had been modified around the bust area to give her more coverage, so Selita wins this very easily for me.

Firstly because she looks better in the dress and secondly she wore better shoes.

LeToya hugely disappoints by modifying the dress. Just proving that she shouldn’t have worn it in the first place.

Can you image Kate Moss or Erin Wasson modifying a Balmain piece? Only if hell had frozen over.
