Mary J Blige In Michael Kors & Alexander McQueen – VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul

Mary J Blige hit the red carpet last night for VH1’s Divas Celebrate Soul event at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

The divas paid tribute to the great cities of soul music: Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, London and Memphis.

I’m thankful she wore Michael Kors because she always looks her best when she dons his designs.

On this occasion she wore a Michael Kors Fall 2011 one-shoulder nude jersey gown which was decorated with crystal embroidery.

Mary also wore a fur jacket on the red carpet to perfect her divalicious look.

An asymmetrical bob with blunt bangs and glossy lips provided the finishing touches.

If this dress is looking very familiar to you, that’s because Gwyneth Paltrow wore a similar dress from the same collection to the Vanity Fair Oscar party earlier this year.

Mary J Blige In Roberto Cavalli – 2011 American Music Awards

Mary J Blige was one of the many stars to perform on stage at the 2011 American Music Awards which were held at the Nokia Theatre LA Live in California last night.

The singer wore a Roberto Cavalli gown.

I love Mary, Roberto Cavalli and animal print individually, but the combo is not working here.

Not one single bit.

Not hair, not the oversized Pat Butcher-eqse earrings and especially not the shapeless dress.

Who Wore Zac Posen Better? Leigh Lezark, Reese Witherspoon or Mary J Blige

Back in March, Leigh Lezark attended Zac Posen’s Fall 2011 presentation wearing sexy leopard print dress from the designers’ Pre-Fall 2011 collection.

Leigh added black accessories including a fur jacket, black pumps and a quilted Chanel bag to her fitted knee-length bustier dress with a sweetheart neckline.

Reese Witherspoon accepted the ‘Generation Award’ at this year’s MTV Movie Awards wearing the same dress which she had shortened.

With her hair down in a teased wavy style, she completed her look with a pair of nude Jimmy Choo ‘Quiet’ peep-toes.

Mary J. Blige wore the same dress to attend the 2011 McDonald’s 365Black Awards this month.

The singer kept things simple by only adding a pair of black patent leather peep-toe heels to her look.

I love the dress on Leigh, especially with the black accessories as it looks incredibly chic against her signature jet-black hair, but her shoes definitely let her down here.

And while I admire Mary’s individual style, her bleach-blonde bob is competing for attention with the dress and just isn’t my taste.

Even though I think she could have added more exciting accessories, my vote is going to Reese. I much prefer her overall styling of the dress.

Mary J Blige In Hervé Léger by Max Azria – 2011 BET Award Press Room

Mary J Blige was also at the 2011 BET Awards, but the singer didn’t walk the red carpet.

She was spotted backstage in the Press Room wearing a Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall 2011 high-neck bandage dress.

It gets worse.

She paired her beige high-neck bandage dress with white t-bar peep-toes.

This is not the Mary J Blige that I know and love.

Save this type of look for Rihanna, Keri Hilson and Nicki Minaj.

Mary J Blige In Marc Bouwer – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Questions My Love For Leopard Print Award
At the 2011 Billboard Music Awards Mary J Blige made me question my love of leopard print.

I have always been a fan of leopard print, but this dress is screaming to go back into the wild.

I don’t like the solid panels with the print and I really don’t like the high neckline.

Mary can pull of most looks, but this look is overwhelming her from the print, to the neckline to the bold shoulders.

Mary J Blige In Michael Kors – Michael Kors 30th Anniversary Celebratory Dinner

The one person I was not surprised to see at the Michael Kors’ 30th anniversary dinner during Paris Fashion Week was Mary J Blige.

The singer has a long time fan of the designers work.

She also opted for a Fall 2011 look.

Her look included a nude fox coat paired with a nude v-neck halter jumpsuit which was entirely covered with paillettes.

This may not be to everyone’s taste, but you have to agree she’s totally rockin’ this look.

Who Wore Malandrino Better? Catherine Malandrino, Mary J Blige or Drew Barrymore

As I said earlier, Drew Barrymore’s Malandrino Resort 2010 gold brocade dress has been worn twice before.

Firstly by the designer herself Catherine Malandrino, and secondly by her BFF Mary J Blige.

Catherine wore her dress back in June when she attended the 2010 CFDA Fashion Awards.

She paired her dress matching embellished ankle strap sandals and a clutch covered in silver paillette’s.

Mary hosted an ‘Evening at Cipriani’ in New York when she wore her Malandrino gown just 10 days after her friend.

The R&B singer paired her dress with YSL Tribute sandals, a silver clutch and diamond bracelet.

It’s unusual to see a celeb like Drew Barrymore wear a well worn gown, but she did at her “Going The Distance” LA Premiere last night.

As much as I didn’t like Drew’s Trib Two choice, I loved how her Balmain belt gave this dress a whole new look.

I’m not a fan of mixing metals and since Catherine and Mary both carried silver clutch with this gold dress, Drew wins for me.
