Claire's Life
3rd Time’s a Charm: Help Me Get Dressed for 106 & Park!
By Claire

So I’ve been asked, yet again, to come and offer a bit of my stylish expertise on BET’s 106 & Park. The date is set for next Monday, June 30th, and I want your help figuring out what to wear!
You guys have pretty unanimously hated the outfits I’ve chosen for my first 2 appearances.
For my first go round, I thought it’d be cheeky to wear Alexander Wang’s Parental Advisory Mesh Sweatshirt with a Milly Skirt and Gianvito Rossi Pumps:

Looking back most of you were kind, though Truth wrote, “Like I’ve said before Clair for sosmeone that judges fashion you are no fashionista. You just don’t get it Clair and Its disappointing.” Anonymous added, “Last time I spoke my mind in regards to an outfit I was blocked. So I will say, the makeup and hair looks fabulous!” Alright!
2nd go round, I kept it fun and colorful in Givenchy:

Brittany was the first to chime in, writing, “Congrats on the 2nd 106 & Park go around, but oh honey no to this outfit. I’m not sure what you were thinking. Yikes.” OMGeezy!! added, “We all have off days, but Claire!! This outfit is horrid!! Your so much better than this mess!! Just Hell No!!”
These really warm my heart!

So for my 3rd time, I thought I’d elicit your exceedingly stylish opinions. What should I wear? What won’t make me look horrid and a mess?

Leave a comment, create a Polyvore set, leave a link. Help a sista out! I don’t have a ton of time, so I’d prefer items from Net-a-Porter.com or TheOutnet (same or next day delivery), Shopbop, Bergdorf…anywhere with fast one day shipping;) We can vote on the top 4 ideas on Friday.
Let’s make this a team effort!
And if anything, be sure to tune in next Monday June 30th at 6pm for my thoughts on the BET 2014 Awards red carpet.

    I think you should wear your locs in a bun, with a V or scoop-neck close-fitting top and wide-leg high-waisted pants. No jacket. Since they have you sitting down for the chat, the pants will just be more easier to manage.

  2. manano says:

    A stylishy tailored Jumpsuit claire is always a winner preferably in white paired with citrus pumps.

  3. Jay says:

    Hey Claire,

    First let me preface this by saying I am NOT a stylist just thought this would be a fun thing to kill boredom lol. I scoured The Bomb Life looking at past outfits to get a glimpse of your taste. A lot of the clothes you have are quite similar so I didn’t want to stray too far I made a two outfit set on polyvore with interchangeable accessories. Hope you like it! http://www.polyvore.com/claire_106_park/set?id=126341705

  4. Claire says:

    Ow, these are all great ideas! Keep ‘em coming!

  5. Creolecandycrush says:

    I vote for the shirt dress just because I like it and wear a flower in your hair ..

  6. Emmy says:

    @creokcandycrush: hell to the no. She is invited as a fashion expert not at naturalcumbaya convention!!!

    I think you should be inspired by the style and silhouette you had when you met jlo a few weeks ago. Simple, not overdone, not overaccessorized, not too trendy, but still memorable.

  7. Anonymous says:

    NO NO NO @Jay That entire look look’s typical and recycled.
    I agree with a exceptionally tailored jumpsuit and a “on trend” citrus hued pumps. @Manano make polyvore

  8. Krystal says:

    Since colorful suits are huge this season, take it up a notch by doing a floral-print suit with a basic grey tee, banging earrings or necklace, basic black pumps and done!
    You’ll still be trendy yet classic, which I think your style is already! :)
    Maybe this Givenchy suit.

    I sooooo love this blog!!!! Claire you freakin rock!!! You really make us feel like we matter! And u are a fashionista from the inside out! Congrats on your third appearance!

  10. Killatothekam says:

    Claire your skin is flawless and your legs are to die for! I say where a beautiful summer color of your choice and show them GAMS girl!!!! A cute romper or suited shorts combo would be fly with your hair up

  11. Jay says:

    Claire, I like both of your outfits! I’d love to see you in a standout maxi dress or a jumpsuit. That’ll be summery and fun, I think :)

  12. fifi says:

    Hello Claire, so I created a set of two different outfits with prints that I think would work. See it below
    Style Inspiration: What To Wear To BET’s 106 & Park Show. http://t.co/qQdsC3QVUu #polyvoreStyle

  13. I have watched you for years Claire, you truly have evolved. I describe your style as grown and sexy. You know at Girls Best Friend and Co we believe in dressing according to your personality. I find you very humble and demure. There is no need to go outside your comfort zone. Yes, I know it’s 106, but you need NOT wear hip T-shirts to fit in. I would love to see you in a beautiful, delicate blouse, well tailored slacks and a sexy shoe. I am crazy for the Gucci Olimpia I spied you wearing. I don’t know if you are old enough to remember Free, but Free was one of the fliest chick on TV back in her day. Her style was more Fly Girl than a B-girl. I notice you don’t really accessorize too much. This maybe a little out of your comfort zone but rock some bad ass bangles. I feel strongly about a beautiful delicate blouse becaue I believe it speaks to your personality. IF You must keep it urban and youthful opt for a fly demin slack. Claire I am availabe in August if you instereted in a closet analysis. You know I talk a lot of stuff but I am really good at what I do. Which is dressing women for their personality and for special events. Good luck on 106, don’t take criticism so serious, its just an option we all have one.

  14. Oh i just reviewed some of your looks, your legs are amazing, I also like a tailored shirt for you to Claire.

  15. Tami says:

    Hey doll face, I think you looked your absolute BEST when you were in D.C. and here in Atlanta for “Cocktails by Claire”. That dress you wore here in Atlanta was to die for! You looked so elegant and the two-piece look in D.C. was so lady-like! That’s when I thought you SLAYED!!! Wear your hair up and show off those killer legs too!

    Dresses or skirts with flare are extremely flattering on you and fit your frame better because of your small waist-line. I don’t care for looks with blazers, tees and buttoned up shirts on you. I’m busty too and it just adds too much up top! You should wear v-necks more or off-the-shoulder tops. I know whatever you wear, it will be fabulous though! Toodles! xoxo

  16. POW says:

    I kind of think Killatothekam nailed it. It’s 106&Park so no old and fussy looks. To me that means no pant suits, maxi dresses (WTF?), tailored jumpsuits or any other middle-age cocktail party nonsense.

    I think your first two looks may not have been perfect, but they were playful and struck the right note. No one is trying to take fashion advice from someone that’s dressed like their mother.

    A romper/romper-looking outfit would show off your figure perfectly, and be cute and appropriate to the venue. I agree that if you go the romper route, go for something with a v-, scoop, or square neck-line.

    I also think you could pull off a crop top (sleeveless with a square neckline in a solid color – I hear jewel tones look best on tv) and a short fit and flare skirt.

  17. ANONYMOUS says:

    That’s such an AWESOME idea Claire! (for the record, I love most ALL your ensembles and think you are quite the fashionista :). But, I also Love the opportunity to get involved and help select an outfit! I think a V-neck romper with a citrus hue pumps would be both simple and stylish, plus show off your best assets (i.e. those legs! lol), with your hair up in a bun. Here are some options I found on shopbop.
    I am by no means a stylist and you’re prob gonna get a LOT of varied opinions. So, perhaps Danielle Nicole can choose 3-4 looks and we all can vote on the best (majority wins). What do you think?

  18. jeda says:

    I agree with Emmy, some kind of remake of the look you had with JLO. That was amazing!

  19. OMGEEZY!!! says:

    Hey Claire , it’s 106 and park theres no need to do head to toe designer or super loud anything!! Save that for the entertainers!! That’s why I commented before bc that Givenchy fit was so loud for you!! Hope I wasn’t too harsh!! You are only human behind this blog and I apologize if I hurt your feelings doll!!

  20. Anonymous says:

    U gotta be sure to concentrate on the shoe choice, thats what 106 & park aged teens like. You could even do simple jeans with a blazer as long as the shoes stand out! Thats what they like

  21. Hi Claire! I think you’d look great in a short suit set. Here’s my polyvore set for you to consider: http://www.polyvore.com/what_to_wear_on_106/set?id=126375942

  22. I apologize if this is posted multiple times. I was having some trouble posting a comment.

    I think you should wear a short suit! It shows off your legs and it’s right on trend. Please check out my polyvore set!


  23. Morgan says:

    Claire, wear what you want to wear. I don’t come here to style, I come here to be inspired and I loved your first outfit (I even saved it), so inspire me.

  24. Claire and Fashion Bomb Daily, Please don’t “kill” me LOL but I have several (or many) looks I think you would SLAY! based on your personal style and taste.

    Your hair, make-up and accessories will of course depend on how you’re feeling that day. My thought is: It’s Friday, it’s 106 & Park…HAVE FUN!



    Throw a BCBG crop moto or faux leather jacket on w/ one of these: http://www.polyvore.com/m/set?.embedder=2443359&.svc=gmail&id=117481142










  25. Brittany says:

    Oh this will be fun! I look forward to seeing everyone’s outfit ideas.

  26. Lola Reggy says:

    Claire you’re hilarious! I mean it in a good way. You just made me laugh so loud!! This is a cool action, since we’ve critisized you just dare us! Hihi, but Claire don’t mind us. You’re the one with the cool successfull fashionblog!! I have 2 things, since we’re allowed to :) . Your hair in a bun is beautiful and I am a great fan of your legs, so show them off please!!!!!

  27. CaribbeanQueen says:

    I love both of the previous looks from the waist up, this time try wearing some cool pants/ jeans! your tops/ blazers and hair and makeup are always on point!

  28. CaribbeanQueen says:

    I also agree with the person who said to rock a mean shoe, for the same reasons they gave.

  29. andrea says:

    Claire don’t listen to these people..you looked cute in both appearances of 106 and Park and i think you’ll do fine the 3rd time around..plus it’s 106 and Park…meh!

  30. Yemdarling says:

    Here is the link with a few ideas off a gray scale.


  31. Takia says:

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! You are absolutely amazing and I’m sure that the third time will definently be a charm. I checked out Ursula “Sista Hollywood” collections and I must say I love what she created for you. I’m an all white kind of girls so of course the all white look speaks to me, however, there were a number of great looks that I think you would “KILL”! I’m sure you have it but just in case…Here’s the direct link to the looks she created… http://www.polyvore.com/looks_for_claire_sumner_fashionbombdaily.com/collection?id=3712231#comments

  32. Sistah Hollywood says:

    Unfortunately my links above are broken so I created a collection: http://www.polyvore.com/claire_sulmers_fashionbombdaily.com/collection?id=3712231

  33. AnnaGirly says:


    I think you have awesome legs, and you should highlight you asset. So…I’m thinking you’d look great in a short suit in a complementary color! They are on trend, and your legs would look great as usual.

  34. MsClassic says:

    Claire I love your style and seeing some (not all) of these outfits I think you can handle it on your own!

  35. C. says:

    You are stunning and you have a great figure. Since it’s 106 and Park it should be young and fun:

    Some ideas:
    a sliver of skin with white and metallic accents? http://www.bloglovin.com/viewer?blog=3263343&post=1764621075
    a jumpsuit: http://fashionbombdaily.com/2014/06/12/mens-fashion-flash-kevin-harts-think-like-man-atlanta-premiere-saint-laurent-gray-black-white-silk-palm-printed-long-sleeve-shirt/


    I also love you in short full skirts. You had one post where you had like a metallic skirt. So cute. Knock em dead lady!!!

  36. ca says:

  37. For some reason my URLs were broken up, so here is my collection of looks for Claire:


  38. TT says:


    I like that alc charlotte cropped sweater and crossover skirt look a lot! thats my vote!

  39. Wear Your Own Shoes Resale says:

    Claire, How exciting and thank you for including us!

    My idea like many was to show your legs. hair up and nude make up.


  40. LBZ says:


    Keep the look simple and v-neck. Let your features and what you are saying speak the loudest.

  41. Eric White says:

    Monochromatic Minimalism with Jason Wu. Would look perfect on screen and has an edgy play on High Fashion without screaming “I’m trendy”

    New Age Canadian Tuxedo with Balmain & Alice+Olivia
    A young and fresh take on the traditional Denim on Denim with by adding Military Nubuck Gladiator Heels and a pop of color with the Dolce and Gabbana Floral Shoulder Bag.

  42. LookShrpLivSmrt says:

    So I couldn’t decide if I wanted you to embrace your whimsical yet sophisticated side… Or channel a Parisian Editrice w/ a New York BITE!


  43. Jazzy says:

    Hey, I don’t think my last post uploaded. But, a cute short suit with a crop top and nude accessories.


  44. Tanisha A. says:

    Hi Claire,
    I took your style into consideration and styled this “Girly, Funky” outfit for your 106 & Park visit. I love taking “fancy” pieces and relaxing them. I think this ball skirt with either or crop tops and hoop earrings will look amazing on you!!!


  45. Claire says:

    Great ideas, guys! I’ve had fun looking through.
    A few things:
    1. Can’t wear all white on TV. It’s one of those ‘rules.’
    2. Excessive patterns also aren’t so good..so I hear.
    3. Nothing too expensive. I’m not balling out of control…yet.
    4. Make sure my size is available (large, 10). A lot of these things are out of stock/not available in my size.
    5. Try to stick to the sites I mentioned only because they’re the only ones who can get the items to me same or next day. 106 is on Monday!
    Either way, I’m sure we’ll all come up w something BOMB.
    Thanks for having so much fun w/ this

  46. Rashida says:

    No black this time!!!!

  47. Tae Sheppard says:

    Its officially summer so i’d like to see you in something that shows off some leg and since its 106 still keep it young and playful!

    this kenzo dress makes a bold statement:

    or this:

    i’m all about remixing clothes, was obsessed with this outfit you wore back in january wear it sans coat and you could keep it cute and casual:

    or this dress if you still have it screams summertime:

    either way you decide to go you got this ma!
