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: Selena Gomez @ Met Gala 2017

Selena Gomez, Met Gala 2017

Selena Gomez showed up to the Comme des Garçons-themed Met Gala this year with The Weeknd on her arm, a fresh new ‘do, and a gorgeous lace Coach gown.

I can’t imagine how many times The Weeknd must have complimented her on Monday night. She looked so freaking amazing!

I love the plunging neckline on this gown because it walks the fine line between daring and shy. The details on the gown are also a very nice touch.

See below for two similar dresses!

Dress:

1. Azbro, $28.65

2. Luis Villa Roma, £ 2177.00 ($2801.58 USD)

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Kerry Washington @ 23rd SAG Awards

Kerry Washington was a guardian angel in white at the SAG Awards this past Sunday.

Instead of wings, she wore a safety pin on the left sleeve of her embroidered Roberto Cavalli off-the-shoulder gown to show solidarity with those affected by Trump’s travel ban.

I love the soft look of this dress. I bet it feels soft too, like a pile of cotton balls. The white contrasts so well with Kerry Washington’s dramatic black smokey eye makeup.

Below are two dresses inspired by the look.

Dress:

1. Shopbop, $1,495.00

2. GILT, $399.00

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Lady Gaga @ Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2016

Guys, I’m totally drooling over that black gown Lady Gaga wore with rose print at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year.

It has this sort of edgy elegance to it that I just love. I don’t have too many long dresses in my closet, but this is something I’d totally buy if I came across it in a store.

Below are two dresses inspired by the look!

Dress:

1. Unique Vintage, $72.00

2. Dezzal, $114.99

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.

1. Maycool, $27.99

2. DHgate, $99.43
