You’d think with the fab weather around most of the country this weekend the fashionable would slow down and take some time to kick back, but numerous events saw some of our favorite Bomb celebs setting the red carpet ablaze. So were they up to par, Bombshells?


At Chanel’s dinner for the Tribeca Film Festival, Kerry Washington rocked–what else?–a tweed Chanel cocktail dress with a modest boatneck neckline and oversize sequin embellishments. She finished off her look with a silver-grey Chanel clutch and a pair of satin pumps in eggplant. Love this look from head-to-toe, including Kerry’s simple, fresh faced makeup and amethyst cocktail ring to match the shoes. Tres hot!


Also in Chanel at the same event, Oscar nominee Viola Davis kept it feminine and elegant in a pleated white sheath with intricate diamond embroidery and eyelets. Her metallic platform pumps and jewelry lend the outfit some texture without taking away from the frock’s easy elegance. A quiet, subtle Hot…


At Tribeca Fest’s Independent Filmmaker project event, Sanaa Lathan donned a knee-length silk scarlet number with layered pearl necklaces and sparkling silver accessories. The dress itself is pretty but something about this fit makes it look dowdy on Sanaa. I’d have also gone for strappier sandals in a non-sparkling metallic, as these appear not only too chunky, but also a bit on the casual side for such a mature dress, Hmm…


Over at ESPN Magazine’s NFL pre-draft party, friends Adrienne Bailon and Kim Kardashian sported contrasting stylish looks: Adrienne in a fitted fuschia mini-dress with ruffle cap sleeves, and Kim in a flouncy slate skirt with a silk shell and boyfriend tuxedo-cut jacket. Both ladies wisely opted for black shoes and simple accessories though if I were Adrienne, I’d have followed Coco Chanel’s golden rule of taking one item off before you leave the house and left the necklace behind–with those double ruffles, it’s a bit unnecessary. Still, Hot looks for both ladies!


Finally, for us fashionphiles who loved her offbeat look in the ’90s, model Stacie McKenzie popped up at this weekend’s Fashion and Football affair in NYC. Now, y’all know that like Erykah Badu and Solange, Stacie always genuinely marches to the beat of her own drum (part of why I find her so fierce), but while I can dig each piece of this ensemble separately, together…not so much. Hmm…
Hope you all had fabulous weekends. ;-)

  1. I am not a fan of Kerry’s look. She is so petitite, this dress really doesn’t do much for her.

    Adrian and Kim both look on point.

    Viola’s dress is so bland. I would think on her dark skin white would work but it really doesn’t.
