Wardrobe Wednesdays: Ashanti @ 2018 VMAs

This year’s MTV Video Music Awards red pink carpet was a hot mess.

From half-naked dresses to devil costumes (does Amber Rose realize it’s not even October yet?), the fashion looks I saw were a cry for help. Seriously, guys. This isn’t that hard. Wear a casual pantsuit if you can’t figure out what to hide your tatas and hooha with.

Regardless, most of the men looked SUPER (looking at you Maluma) and I’ll definitely give honorable mention to Camilla Cabello and sisters Chloe x Halle.

All of that aside, Ashanti won the night for me.

The singer showed up in a stunning silver number with not one but two slits. The gown was strapless with long sleeves and went beyond floor length.

This is the most leg I saw on the pink carpet without being basically naked, by the way.

I love how tasteful this look is. She shows off so much skin but still manages to leave enough to the imagination.

See below for two options inspired by Ashanti’s VMA dress!

Dress:

1. DHGate, $164.81

2. Fashion Genie Boutique, $77.00

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Kelsea Ballerini @ iHeartRadio Music Awards 2017

Kelsea Ballerini was a dream in midnight blue at this year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards.

She won Best New Country Artist and turned heads with a sexy blue sparkly jumpsuit. Her eye makeup was as daring as her deep cleavage, bold blue cat-eye and all.

Apparently all that glitters isn’t only gold?

I love how party-ready this outfit is. You can’t not want to just jump out onto the dance floor while wearing something like this.

See below for two jumpsuits inspired by the look!

Jumpsuit:

1. Lulus, $68.00

2. Bloomingdale’s, $108.00

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Viola Davis @ 74th Golden Globe Awards

Life gave Viola Davis some lemons, and from those lemons, we got a Golden Globes dress.

My mom and I could not take our eyes off that bright yellow dress Viola Davis wore to the 2017 Golden Globes! Yellow is my favorite color, so of course she won best dressed on my list.

She wore the dress with a simple white clutch bag. I love the one shoulder detail, which gives the gown an extra dash of sexy.

1. OASAP, $60.75

2. DresSale, $125.99

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Jennifer Garner @ 2016 Teen Choice Awards

Jennifer Garner, 2016 Teen Choice Awards

As I’ve stated in previous Wardrobe Wednesdays posts centered on award shows, I love it when celebs show up wearing the simplest things that look super elegant and chic on them.

Because no one wants to be sitting in an auditorium space for hours waiting in uncomfortably sophisticated clothing to be called for an award you might get nothing more than a nomination for.

Jennifer Garner accepted the Teen Choice Award  for Choice Movie: Drama for the film Miracles from Heaven alongside costar Kiley Rogers on Sunday wearing this gorgeous black Maison Margiela strapless jumpsuit with buttons. She completed the look with some David Webb earrings and a bangle.

The wide leg on the jumpsuit makes the look appear polished and well put together, in my opinion. The jewels are also a very nice compliment to the outfit.

You can find the original jumpsuit at Barneys (marked with *). Below are also some alternatives to the jumpsuit and the jewelry.

Jumpsuit:

1. White House Black Market, $160.00

2. Barneys, $2,090.00 *

Bangle:

3. HomeBello, $107.00

4. Go Navajo, $420.00

Earrings:

5. Nordstrom, $65.00

6. Rakuten, $39.99

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Lucy Liu @ 2016 Tony Awards

Lucy Liu, 2016 Tony Awards

The 2016 Tony Awards was hosted by James Corden this year, which was awesome. Equally awesome was Lucy Liu’s yellow gown on the red carpet.

She arrived wearing a plunging light yellow gown and a purple box clutch in hand. I love how they smoothed her hair out in the front before tucking it behind her ear for a fresh evening look.

Below are some similar items to Lucy Lui’s Tony Award night ensemble.

Dress:

1. Maycool, $27.99

2. DHgate, $99.43

Clutch:

3. Perfect Handbags, £34.50 ($48.97 USD)

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Kaley Cuoco at the 58th #Grammys

I could not get over how gorgeous Kaley Cuoco looked at the 58th Grammy Awards show on Monday night!

Her outfit of choice was quite simple, styling a white sequined cutout jumpsuit by Naeem Kahn with a nude colored box clutch. I feel like the nude clutch go so well with her blonde waves, causing her to match literally from head to toe.

As Samantha Sutton writes in this Popsugar article about Kaley’s award show fashion, “the girl is always dressed for dancing.”

Indeed.

Below are some pieces similar to what Kaley is wearing, should you want to steal this look for a night out on the town with some friends.

Jumpsuit:

1. Maycool, $29.99

2. Walmart, $21.61

Clutch:

3. ASOS, $48.00

4. Dune London, $59.00
