Mary J. Blige, one of the queen divas of R&B, arrived for the taping of the “VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul” special last night at Hammerstein Ballroom looking amazing in a crystal-embellished sleeveless off-white gown from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection by Michael Kors
Mary looked down-right gorgeous in this dress! I love the fit on her, and check out that stunning gather-and-fall detail at the side which only enhanced how great this looked on her athletic figure.
To beat the chilly December weather in New York City, she slipped on a matching fox-fur cropped coat from the collection. Diva.
Sporting blunt bangs with her sleek blonde bob — MJB rocked this. She’s also wearing a matching pair of Giuseppe Zanotti crystal-embellished double platform pumps beneath the gown.
During the show, after donning a white longsleeve gown for a performance with Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson, Mary slipped into some leather leggings to to sing her single “Mr. Wrong”.
In addition to the tight-fitting pants that she covered up with a pair of insane Christian Dior ‘Guetre’
alligator thigh-high boots, Mary werked it
in a fox-fur trimmed tweed black jacket from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection by Alexander McQueen
. I’m kind of obsessed with the multiple zipper detail throughout the design.
For a duet performance of Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody” later in the show, Mary added some extra sparkle to her night with a strapless knee-length sequined hot pink cocktail dress. With a dripping-in-diamonds cuff on her wrist, she finished off her look with red “Tribtoo” pumps by Yves Saint Laurent
. If she had worn different shoes, I might have liked this more.
Don’t miss “VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul” TONIGHT, December 19th at 9pm/8c only on VH1!
