mtv kellyrowland zps2d8a2c79 Kelly Rowland Talks With Rita Ora About Her Red Carpet Evolution On House Of Style

A glowing Kelly Rowland chatted it up with ‘House of Style’ correspondent (I’m just going to leave it at that, thanks) Rita Ora about how to own the red carpet, as well as some of her favorite looks through the years.

“Now I look at that and I’m like ‘that was a big risk.’ I mean, I guess it was appropriate for that time. Nobody was really doing what we did as far as our outfits were concerned,” said Kelly about her red carpet moment with the Destiny’s Child at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards.

It’s the super revealing red carpet moment that everybody is talking — and sadly, it doesn’t involve Aretha Franklin overexposing her breasts.

Rihanna‘s stylist Mel Ottenberg and dress designer Adam Selman are opening up about the completely sheer dress coming soon to Kordell Stewart’s next drag showcase that the goat whisperer donned while accepting Fashion Icon Award honors at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City last night.

“It’s so naked,” Mel told Style.com. “I don’t know if it’s shocking—I’m with her all the time, so my shock gauge is off, but I told her that I thought she was ready for this dress a while ago, and that I wasn’t. I’m the prude, and I’m just catching up.”

“So many people didn’t sleep last night,” he added. “I would say at least eight people worked nonstop from 8 p.m. last night to 3 p.m. today putting on the finishing touches.”

“We definitely wanted to make it a little bit scandalous,” Adam said about the custom fishnet dress, gloves and headscarf hand embellished with over 216,000 Swarovski crystals. “The dress is just fishnet and crystals and a couple of fingers crossed. But fashion is about beauty, and the [female] body is part of that.”

The “I Wanna Know” jokes write themselves. A mason jar full of corn liquor and trip to Miss Celie’s sewing shop later, singer Joe took to the stage to perform at ATL Live On The Park in The Big Peach this week. What’s your verdict on his style?

Casket Sharp: Barrington Levy

Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em.

Being the sole party responsible for making 98% of the general public (okay, just me) interested enough in Shyne’s debut album to download it illegally from Napster washes away the fashion faux pas sins committed by Barrington Levy but I decided to publish this post anyway as a cautionary tale to the baby boomers of Crunkland. Don’t do it, please don’t do it.

Inspired by Gregg Leakes calling Peter Thomas a nigga on last week’s episode of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and casually dropping the phrase “real talk” later in his subsequent response to the incident on Twitter, the dance hall icon took the stage alongside other reggae greats Shabba Ranks and Capleton at the Sounds Of Greatness Reloaded live show in New Jersey last week.

Dress your age and not your shoe size people.
