2010 Grammy Awards – Mary J Blige In Gucci & Roberto Cavalli

I’ve been praying for colour from Mary J Blige and boy did she deliver.

The diva wore two different looks at the 2010 Grammy Awards last night.

She arrived wearing a fuchsia pink Gucci gown with cut-out details in the neckline.

I just adore how this dress skimmed Mary’s curves and gave her a stunning silhouette.

The diva later performed with Andrea Bocelli wearing a cobalt blue Roberto Cavalli strapless gown with beaded bodice detail.

I can’t figure out which one I love more.

This is a nice problem to have.

Grammy Awards “Salute To Icons Honoring Doug Morris” Clive Davis Event – Mary J Blige In Alberto Makali

Mary J. Blige was glowing at the “Salute to Icons Party Honoring Doug Morris” in LA last night.

I happy to see the diva is still keeping away from the dark side of her closet.

She dazzled wearing a Alberto Makali stunning draped front gown, with equally dazzling earrings to match.

I love the sparkling ombre gold and bronze sequin embellishments which make this look really interesting.

Her look is paired with YSL Trib Two heels.

Runway To Essence Black Women In Music Event – Mary J Blige In Alexander McQueen

There’s only so much black a person can wear on the red carpet before I start to lose interest in them.

Mary J Blige was has been wearing a lot of black lately, so I was relieved to see her wearing this bright red asymmetrical Alexander McQueen Resort 2010 jersey dress to the “Essence Black Women In Music Event”.

The singer looked the best she has a in long while pairing her dress with a black studded Burberry Prorsum clutch and some sexy strappy sandals.

Taraji P. Henson wore a figure hugging Bodyamr LBD with a ruffled neckline and a plunging sheer panel, whilst carrying a Perrin Paris 1893 “Je Te Tiens” clutch and wearing Giuseppe Zanotti heels with a red platform.

3rd Annual BET Honors

Gabrielle Union was one of the few at this event that didn’t bore me along with Taraji.

Gabrielle wore a figure hugging nude strapless gown with silver detailing. Nice dress, shame about the hair.

Taraji P. Henson also opted for nude Alberta Ferretti gown which was gorgeous against her skin, but the hunched shoulders really bother me.

There’s something very dated and home-made about Mya’s red strapless gown with a jeweled detail.

She obviously wanted to stand out on this red carpet – which she does – but for all the wrong reason.

Queen Latfiah continue to her slide into boringville.

Her LBD is nice enough, but in she needs to bring back the colour.

Something tells me I’ve seen Mary J Blige wear this one-sleeved dress before.

This is the best I’ve seen Tichina Arnold in a long while. Her black gown with a feathered skirt doesn’t often me.

This has to be one of the most boring and poorly dressed red carpet events of the year.

The BET Honors airs on February 1 at 8 pm on BET.

Precious Screening At 2009 AFI FEST

What a difference a decent dress can makes to Mariah Carey, as she has a tendency to want to wear very tight gowns that can make her look very trashy.

On this occasion she wore a Zac Posen Resort 2008 black mermaid gown and I think this is the best we have ever seen her, despite the fact that the gown has already been worn on the red carpet earlier this year.

Hair and make-up are fabulous, and she doesn’t go overboard with the bling.

BDOTW contender for sure.

Paula Patton has great legs, so she shortened her Bottega Veneta corseted dress to show them off and this modification works really well for her.

I’m not as excited about her necklace, but I do love her Jimmy Choo ‘Revere’ strappy sandals.

I love Mary J Blige, but I’m not so crazy about her Emillio Pucci Resort 2010 gown as it’s doing nothing for her.

Olivia Wilde opted for a white RM by Roland Mouret Scirocco crepe pencil dress with an asymmetric neckline and cap sleeves.

Nude make-up and accessories complete this look.

Garcelle Beauvais looks incredible wearing a red hot asymmetrical dress with Christian Louboutin glittery peep-toes.

Mo’Nique and her husband Sidney Hicks walked the red carpet together as she glowed wearing a gold shimmering strapless dress.

Fashion Group International’s 26th Annual Night Of Stars

It’s not often I’m wowed by Mary J Blige, but this is very much a wow moment.

The singer looked stunning wearing a black Gucci Spring 2010 halter gown with jeweled leather harness neckline detail.

Truly outstanding.

Potato sack is the first thing that springs to mind when I see Eva Mendes wearing her modified slouchy grey Calvin Klein Spring 2010 dress.

I personally preferred the dress on the runway, but it’s just not a red carpet look.

And as if the look wasn’t bad enough she adds shoe-boots to the mix.

Iman wows again for the 3rd time in a row wearing a dusty rose Michael Kors sparkler.

I say it every time, but its amazing how ridiculously gorgeous this woman looks every time she hits the red carpet.

Emmy Rossum’s blew me away looking spectacular wearing a draped golden Donna Karan gown which make her look like a Grecian goddess.

Evan Rachel Wood smoldered in a burgundy Gucci gown with antique gold fringe detail on on sleeve.

She looked poised and elegant with her hair swept back into an slick updo, pairing the gown with a gold python clutch with bamboo tassel detail to match her dress.

Gucci ‘s Creative Director Frida Giannini received a “Design Star Honoree” award at this event.

Wearing a self-designed Gucci mini dress paired with a Gucci clutch and Gucci Fall 2009 heels, she posed with James Franco and Mary J Blige who both wore Gucci.

A very demure Gwen Stefani wore a LBD  with a rise and fall hem, paired with YSL black patent Trib Two’s and her L.A.M.B clutch.

I was trying to work out what was so different about Gwen’s look, then it hit me.

She’s not wearing her trademark red lipstick, instead she opted for a nude shade.

Although I like this look, she has totally thrown me by being so unpredictable.

Dita von Teese was typically beautiful sticking to her trademark red lip.

The Burlesque beauty wore a black vintage gown, with a head piece by Stephen Jones.
