Vh1 Hip-Hop Honors Red Carpet Trend: Gloves
For every red carpet for every event, there is always a trend. Whether it’s bib necklaces, chandelier earrings, one shoulder dresses, or square toe pumps, there is always one trend that all the stylists meet up and agree on. For the Hip-Hop Honors, honoring the 25 years of Def Jam, this trend was gloves:
Foxy looked a hot boogie brown mess on these folk’s red carpet. I never really expect her to look awesome and dashing, because she always messes it up, but I always HOPE that she would get it together- just once. But nonetheless, her shoes were hot, and she paired (randomly) some red gloves with her ‘fit.
Let’s talk about who. I. am, blondie find me in the hood wit’ my peeples… Whaaaaat? Now, ya’ know I love me some Eve. My favorite female rapper- period! The self proclaimed pitbull in a skirt cleaned up nice from her ice blonde bald, tomboy days. From the chic bobs, to the sophisticated but still sexy dresses and make-up, good look for my girl. For the HHH, she had a cute all black look and black one fingered gloves. Out of all the glove looks, Eve’s were my favorite!
I don’t like this look. Chrisette Michele looked like a 50-year old housewife trying to get her groove back, after her youngest went off to college. The big, baggy dress, the slouchy suede boots, and the suede and leather gloves… baby, you are doing too much! Usually I love what June Ambrose does with her clients, so I’m guessing she didn’t style her this go ’round. Womp womp.
Ja Rule also rocked gloves during his performance with his former label mate, Ashanti:
