Celebrity Style, Hot or Hmm, Mary J. Blige
Hot! or Hmm…: Mary J Blige at the 138th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs
By Claire

Mary J Blige sang the National Anthem at the 138th Kentucky Derby in a ravishing red ensemble:

The “No More Drama” singer slipped on a red ruffled one shoulder cocktail, accented by red suede pumps, a red hat, and red satin gloves. She added interest with Lorraine Schwartz rose cut diamond earrings and a diamond bracelet.

Hmm..I think I would’ve loved this outfit more minus the gloves…but then again, her accessories are appropriate considering the event. The dress is cute, shoes are popping, hat works. Hot!
What do you think?

*See her perform here:

*Ice T & Coco as well as Star Jones were in attendance:

Who was best dressed?

    So proud of Mary – vocals sounded nice.
    The outfit is “okay” to me – I’m not a huge fan of the color red, and this is a lot.

  2. jamesa says:

    Mary looks nice and dare I say it. Coco doesn’t look bad either.

  3. BossyGurl says:

    Work it Mary!!! I love the outfit

  4. Shanon says:

    Cute, Im not a huge fan of the way everything is put together but she looks nice! Mary def has the cutest outfit of the three ladies pictured. That blue dress is a MESS.


  5. makeeasweet says:

    im not feeling that color red on mary.i like star jones in that color and she look nice with that hat.

  6. Mah says:

    She looks like a showgirl.

    I really like MJBs music

    But I just cant get with her style, something about her seems to scream ‘look, i am ghetto!’ like she tries to be ghetto but she is not as as it seems..

    I just don’t like that :’(

    Your blog is great!!!!!

  8. TheCreative says:

    All the ladies look good actually….

  9. Kitty B. says:

    Yawn @ Mary!

    Cocoa actually looks cute, im proud :)

  10. Tessa B says:

    I like the red dress…thats it..just the dress….coco dress looks cute & comfy…and star jones–I’ll be nice and just say NO COMMENT…

  11. Kinky Curly says:

    I’m distracted by those red gloves…and not in a good way. Considering the event, I like her hat, love her shoes, but the dress I’m not crazy about

  12. Kishonda says:

    My my!! Mary looks stunning head to toe!!

  13. Madame M says:

    Mary has so a beautiful glow and pretty face, why did she hide them under this hat for grand mother?
    Anyway her dress works perfectly on her with these fabulous and hot pumps.

  14. Emily says:

    I love Mary but she can never get it right. Those tats should have been covered, she looks like Barbie Ghetto Derby. And the whole outfit is just bad, those gloves, etc.
    Coco is just in her all time wackness.
    Star O_0

  15. Jaz says:

    MJB: a bit much red , but it works . Coco: Maam- can you go up a size please. Why must all of your clothes be so tight ? SJ- GIMME THAT HAT GIRL !

  16. Briana says:

    The gloves…*sigh*
    SN: Coco looks cute! I love her!

  17. Mary’s dress and hat are nice, but she should have nixed the gloves and worn a different shoe. That suede is doing nothing for that satin ensemble. I like both Star and Coco’s hate. Neither of them are winning in the dress department…

  18. Amani says:

    cosign with Emily

  19. kat says:

    I don’t know about the outfit, but when she did that “gave proof” my heart jumped. She did good :-)

  20. kat says:

    Whoo, I had to watch it again! The outfit looks good when she’s singing, not so much standing on a red carpet in front of a wall with red decals all over it.

  21. Aha says:

    I wish she had worn a different color. Something more springlike. Perhaps a pastel? My first thought was country bumpkin, but she looks nice.

  22. Sandra says:

    @Emily, you said exactly what I was thinking. I can’t with these two. I love Mary but fashion wise, she always misses the mark with me. She and Coco need to get new stylist condering all the money they have in bank.

  23. ooooh ….Mary u killing me with the hotness ..

  24. Kimiko says:

    Is it just me or does Ice look really good?
    and as for the Coco, she looks nice considering its Coco…

  25. Cotten Kandi says:

    Is it just me or I never did like the Kentucky Derby big hats and fancy dress get up. I don’t know not one of my favorite looks. But if I had to choose I’d have to say Mary looked the best.

    Plus, she really sang the anthem! Great job.

  26. xi zane says:

    Love Star’s hat

  28. Indigo says:

    Mary looks great!
    I love Coco.. She looks nice. She is so down to earth. Her personality trumps her tacky outfits. Coco and Ice T make a great couple.
    I can’t stand Star Jones. She never looks nice. Ugly on the inside,til it’s spills all over the outside.

  29. Wallflower says:

    Love the dress and the hat, but yeah those gloves are too much… and suede shoes in Kentucky in May? Hmmmm…..

  30. Diva says:

    Coco’s clothes ALWAYS look cheap and I have yet to see her with a handbag that made a statement… this one looks like its not even leather. Mary went from shuckin & jiving for chicken in that commercial to this mess of an outfit.
    I love Stars hat —-its fabulous and it gives me LIFE !

  31. Meika says:

    I love me some MJB but she can still be stylist at the Kentucky Derby… Coco just needs help all the way around but it’s to be expected from a (implanted butt) model…

  32. Meika says:

    I meant MJB can still be stylist… sorry :)

  33. Meika says:

    OMG, I can’t spell right now I mean *stylish*

  34. SPA says:

    I think Mary looks pretty (as always). I like the entire outfit. I think Coco looks nice, but a little too casual for the Kentucky Derby. I’m sure a lot of people would disagree …but I actually think Star is the most appropriately dressed for the event.

  35. Tiff says:

    Lawd… I cannot.

  36. solo says:

    Who would have thought coco would be best dressed. But to me she looks real cute. Mary is on red overkill. Something lighter and airy would have looked better, and those tattoo’s all over take away from the look.

    Go head Mary
