Mary J Blige started 2018 as an Oscar nominated actress, but this weekend she returned to her roots as a music performer for the 2018 Essence Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Convention Center – Day 1: It only takes a few celebrities to be photographed in classic designer logo items for them to become “trendy” again, and the power of logomania is very much focused on Fendi at the moment. While this look felt authentically MJB, I thought the shoes were a tad overkill. You may remember that Olivia Munn sported this same look recently.
Louisiana Superdome – Day 2: On Saturday (July 7) we saw the Yonkers Queen of Hip-Hop Soul reborn rocking a Dapper Dan custom Gucci logo three-piece leather look which she wore with custom red Giuseppe Zanotti open-toe booties. This takes me back to 1992 when the singer burst onto the scene with ‘What’s the 411?’ The labels may not have been Gucci, but the swagger and attitude are very much the same. Loving this iconic moment.
