So there are Radio Disney Music Awards, who knew? The event, held over the weekend at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, pulled in some heavy hitters, with Kelly Clarkson, Janet Jackson and Carrie Underwood in attendance. Meghan Trainor, a nominee for Best Artist and Best Song that Makes You Smile (for “No Excuses”) didn’t take home any awards, and wasn’t really a big winner on the red carpet either. First off, I am not a fan of jumpsuits, and this one isn’t doing Meghan any favors. The green shade is okay, but the cutouts are terrible. I understand the shape she’s going for, but the poufy shoulders and incredibly wide leg pans are just too much. And when did this surplus of fabric at the feet thing come into fashion? Are seamstresses on the endangered list in California? I do dig her hair and makeup though. She’s got time to work out the perfect wedding dress for her upcoming nuptials to actor Daryl Sabara, since she recently told Entertainment Tonight, “I’m thinking Christmas.”
Carrie Underwood wore an outfit I can say was very appropriate for the occasion. That’s pretty much all I can say. She wore a dress with a festive pattern and a sheer black overlay by MSGM. The dress featured a belt with a “heart of the ocean” embellishment on the side. She wore her long locks down, had the perfect smoky eye and nude lip makeup combo and accessorized with drop earrings and Marco Proietti heels. It’s a little much for me, but out of the two American Idol alums on the red carpet, she was the best dressed. Of course, that’s not saying much, after checking out Kelly Clarkson’s ensemble. Carrie squashed rumors of an alleged beef with Kelly by grabbing her for a photo, telling ET,
“Everybody always tries to pit me and Carrie against each other. So, when I saw her I was like, ‘You know what? Let’s just end this right now and get a picture together because we are never in the same place.’ And, like, it never happens. And people always try to put it together like we’re enemies. And I’m like, ‘We don’t even know each other well enough to be enemies.’ So, anyway, I went to get a picture and then everybody lost their mind.”
Jane the Virgin‘s Jenna Ortega brought a humanitarian statement to the red carpet, wearing a leather jacket emblazoned with the statement, “I do care and u should too.” Of course, this is a rebuttal to FLOTUS for her awful “I Really Don’t Care. Do U?” jacket that she wore on a trip to Texas to see caged babies. Jenna told reporters on the red carpet that she had the jacket made the night before the ceremony, stating that she cares about migrant children, and feels Melania, “as first lady of the United States, she should too.” I love the statement, and the jacket is kind of cool as a fashion piece, but I am not nuts about the plaid bustier top and pants combo. The boots make a great complement to the jacket and I an a fan of the casual updo and natural makeup.
Disney fixture Raven Symone showed up in an all-black ensemble, and I won’t go there with a “That’s so Raven” joke, but she really should have tried to tap into her TV character’s psychic powers to know this look wasn’t going to work. Her hair is cool, but this outfit is too much poof, not enough fit (or style). I do like that purse though and, as much as I’m a sucker for a heel, I’ll bet her tootsies are comfortable on those flat booties.
