Last night the NFL Kick-off concert was a smash hit (unless you are a Giants fan) featuring performances by Mariah Carey, No Doubt, and Queen Latifah. The music vets were workin’ it like they were back in the good ol’ 90′s– or at least making valiant stabs at it. Besides the noble but slightly mediocre runs on stage we were focused on none other than the fashion. Particularly Gwen Stefani’s plaid bottoms and Mariah Carey’s sparkley gold number. Our question is, are these looks style do’s or don’ts?
The always, never fails, sure fire “glamouress” herself rocked the stage in a cut off black top and plaid pants. Along with combat boots, the outfit was a direct reflection of the “ nothing’s gonna knock this girl down” line from the groups comeback hit “Settle Down”. Was it a hit or miss? In our opinion the get-up was a bit dull for the fabulous super star. Though she is back in the mix of No Doubt, (famed for their grunge-ish look) this is still the face of Covergirl we’re talking about– then again, her was quite flawless. Overall, the outfit wasn’t a horrible choice but it would have been nice to see her in something a bit more fun. Maybe a cropped pant, sheer top, or a colored something or another. Either way, rather than of a thumbs up or down, we’ll give her a thumbs… left? Can’t give our girl Gwen too much grief.
Ms. Mariah Carey has long been the queen of short and tight get-ups, and she didn’t stray too far last night. The strapless gold high-low dress with matching wings was certainly gorgeous and eye-catching. It went well with the props on stage and fit her like a glittery glove. Did she nail it? We’d have to say yes, but she does get a small style deduction since this is her usual event look. At this point in her career we’re obviously in no place to be making suggestions, but it would be fun to see her go nuts for once.
