The 5th Anniversary of Fashion Rocks kicked off at Radio City Music Halle this Friday night. Star-studded appearances included Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Ciara, Keyshia Cole, Mary J Blige, Mariah Carey, Ashanti, Tyra Banks, Chris Brown, Lil’ Mama, and many MANY others. (Who wasn’t there is a better question, isn’t it?)
The “Just Stand Up” performance started all the Fashion Rocks Hoopla…but did it leave you inspired?
And now onto the three leading style trends from the event…
Style trend #1 – YSL round toe pumps
The Knowles sisters (Beyonce and Solange) must have switched shoes because Solange was seen in the same get-up on the red carpet before her sister. To be fair, Melody Thornton from the Pussycat Dolls and Brandy were all seen in the same pair. Thus, a new ‘it’ shoe is made! Introducing the Yves Saint Laurent round-toe platforms…
Style trend #2- Too much at once!
Nicole Scherzinger, Lil’ Mama, and Solange unfortunately opted to rock as many trends in one outfit. (Sequins, tophat, sari, gold trim, waist belt, sequins, and satin all look great separately but together can be difficult to be pull off.) They all get an E for effort but they should have limited their trend habits to just one.
Style trend #3 – Keep it simple in black.
Black was a no fail style choice as seen on Leona Lewis, Fergie, Ciara, Rihanna, Sean Paul, Chris Brown, Keyshia Cole, Vivica A Fox, and Brandy. Like I said before keep it simple in black.
The 5th Anniversary of Fashion Rocks will air on CBS this Tuesday. Who were your hits and misses of the night?
