Look of the week

Last night was the annual BET Awards! It was really long and kind of boring. award shows aren’t what they used to be back in the early 2000’s. the highlight of the night for me was the bad boy 20th anniversary reunion with performances from puff daddy aka p.diddy, mase, lil cease, faith evans, 112, lil kim and the tribute to biggie aka notorious big. they dominated the charts in the late 90’s and early 2000 with hit after hit; bad boys was literally a hit factory with music we all still listen to today! i wanted more snippets of their classics! few things; i think danity kane and day 26 should have been a part of the reunion because of how huge diddy’s making the band was back then, they revived the bad boy label and brand to the new generation. i also think it lacked energy from diddy and the new face of bad boy french montana who also performed (he sucked), and finally, i think it had potential to even be better over all. i didn’t like that it ended with a performance with diddy and pharrel of their new song. it was good and exciting for all of us to go back in time with bad boy and celebrate them, however it could have been way better if the performances were directed differently.

 

also! i think a great ending of the 10 minute performance would have been a video of biggie rapping on the screen and diddy rapping/talking back to him with a performance of i’ll be missing you…and then the lights go out, and biggie’s son Christopher wallace jr and diddy’s son christian combs come out on stage dressed exactly how their dad’s used to match and since they both look exactly like their fathers, back when the duo dominated the music and hip hop world before biggie’s untimely death. i just think the best way to celebrate the anniversary and their legacy would have been a moment with just diddy and biggie, and than the lights go out as the mini diddy and biggie come out to one of their father’s hit songs together, to symbolize that their legacy has and will always go on. bam!

THE MISS

Nicki Minaj Can I just express how BEAUTIFUL Nicki Minaj is!?  She is perfection, but this long sleeved zipped up lace dress isn’t. I don’t have anything else to say other than I really don’t like this look on her, it doesn’t do anything to her and it’s a dress I can see someone much older than her wearing…but her prettiness is def on fleek though!

The beautiful Gabrielle Union-Wade wore a black sequin-embellished Halston Heritage dress with cutout detailing and a halter neckline. I don’t like it but I don’t dislike it, I am in between…it’s just boring and a little too dressy for the night. I would have liked to see her in something short and summary. I am not indecisive about her hair, I love the short and darker do!

THE HITS

Queen Rih!! Looking fierce in a plunging mustard menswear inspired Giorgio Armani tuxedo jacket and shorts. I love the Neil Lane diamond necklaced and how she layered them and obsessing over this long pony tail. She just looks SO beautiful and this was my favorite look of the night!
Ciara, who is another woman I find incredibly beautiful rocked a Swarovski-crystal embroidered Wes Gordon slip dress. I dig this look on her, only she can pull it off! It’s sexy and it has a soft edginess vibe to it.
