Hello boys and girls, it’s John Oceans again. Hopefully, you will be hearing a lot from me this period because it’s the Hollywood award season and the red carpet is buzzing with fashion. I will be reporting on the hits, misses and the “oh no she didn’t!”
It was the NAACP Image awards last week and Yours Truly went over the photos from the red carpet. So pour yourselves glasses of Sherry please, and let’s do this.
GABRIELLE UNIONThis babe has truly discovered the fountain of youth. It’s almost as if she hasn’t aged a day since Deliver Us From Eva. This is a stunning dress with plenty drama, but notice how she kept her hair and accessories minimal to allow the dress do all the talking. This is a woman who knows her fashion onions and I wish I can see more of her on red carpets.
TRACEY ELLIS-ROSSThis was quite surprising to see. Who would have thought she had it in her. Amazing! Flawless! This is a very beautiful look and her boobs are quite nice (motor boat, anyone?). Black dresses can be very basic but with the bit of sparkle that was added to this one, aunty is a winner. (BEST DRESSED NOMINEE)
She brought it! Girl redeemed herself from the SAG awards disaster! (Review on that coming up soon). Everything was on fleek here! Nne came to slay biko! (BEST DRESSED NOMINEE)
Her dress is stunning and his black tie/black shirt combo is a winner!
BRYSHERE Y. GRAYI know men should push the envelope with their tuxedo and all, but there are some clothes made for the disco and some made for the red carpet! This looks like something that Alex Ekubo or Uti Nwachukwu would wear and tag it SLAY. I just want to yank off that jacket and use it to wrap a birthday present! Unkul, it’s not werking!
I won’t criticize this girl. I am actually worried about her health, because her obesity is spiraling out of control. This is the biggest I have seen her look and she is wearing a slimming color. This girl needs a bypass ASAP. Mushin ministry people, print this picture and put on your cubicle wall, so every time you want to eat amala, you remember this and drop it.
THE ‘WHO DID THIS TO YOU?’
NATURI NAUGHTONShe looks like a classy escort going to a party for perverted old billionaires. Girl looks very uncomfortable; waist trainers go kill these girls one day. Plus the boobs are very tacky, like we can literally see her areolas. This is downright tacky and screams “Unilag runs babe”.
MONIQUE COLEMANToo much is going on here, like her way-too-many trends have made her look ratchet. Where does she get inspiration from? Beyoncé’s videos? With all the embellishments and the cut-outs, she still rocks a thigh high slit? Edakun! (WORST DRESS NOMINEE)
KERRY WASHINGTONIt beats me how this lady never seems to get her fashion right! I am very confused by this dress, I feel like something is very wrong here. When you are an A-list TV actress and you show up on a red carpet looking like a rape victim, people should really be concerned.
It looks like the inner black dress was torn, and then her stylist gave her a slip to wear which was tied underneath the bust area. Biko if you don’t have anything to wear, STAY AT HOME! It’s not that serious. THIS IS AN EPIC FAIL AND SHE IS A WORST DRESSED NOMINEE WITH 4 STARS.
ANITA HAWKINSShe must have a stable full of zebras, so it’s only natural for her to slaughter a couple of them and skin them for the material to have this fabric made. On top of that, she is practicing how to fly, so again, let’s cut her some slack. Oh, and aunty, next time pay attention to your crotch area. The finish there is tacky! (WORST DRESS NOMINEE)
OVERALL BEST DRESSED is Laverne Cox,
OVERALL WORST DRESSED is Kerry Washington! I believe her Nigerian in-laws who want their son to marry an Igbo girl are doing these things to her lol.
