Posted on February 14, 2012

Oooooooh, Miss Lady.

Since the original seems incapable of doing so anymore, you WERQ that Diana Ross shit, girl!

All hail the new queen, bitches!

      I’ll bet the dress weighs almost as much as she does!

        And her eyelashes weigh as much as her hair :)

      The dress is great, but the hair is even better.

        She needs to keep the hair like that. It’s diva-tastic.

      Thank you for showing us the famed booty in a picture. :)  I think this girl is 17 kinds of lovely and she is really developing into herself.

      Love it all but the shoes can’t quite figure what would be better but not loving the black patent pumps.

        Maybe black silk or satin. Patent seems too day or cocktail.  

        • Anonymous

           Patent never seems day to me, but the texture definitely competes with the sequins. I think plain old matte leather or satin would have looked better.

      The idea of Diana Ross not being the Queen anymore kinda sadden me..

      • http://www.GiftedCollector.com Nancy Abrams

        Diana is now the Queen Mother. Give her a break, folks. She’s almost 70. She came on the scene 50 years ago! Diana, trim the hair. Really, we’d still recognize you.

      She looks fabulous, and I agree with the WERQ, but there’s more to being queen than looks.  When Ms. Rowland has made a bigger contribution to music and style than Miss Diana has, then she can be the queen.  But not until.

      Diana is still the queen, but KELLY! Her hair. is. amazing. And she was born to wear that dress.

      Love it, though I do wish the back had dropped down a wee lower.  Not into trampsville, just a touch more sexy.

      Haha, Diana Ross was the very first thing I thought. I wish the back was a little lower, she’s still quite a fit young thing, but it’s a gorgeous dress and I love her eye makeup and hair.

      I wonder what Whitney was going to wear to this red carpet…

    • http://www.wordydoodles.com WordyDoodles

      Love how the color graduates from blue-green at the top to a deep deep blue at the hem. With the blue eyeliner, I think the whole look makes a strong case for how well this color can work on brown skin. (Or maybe I’m still rebelling against the Estee Lauder makeup lady who told me at age 13 that a bright orange-red was my best color.)

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

        Go on and rebel – the Estee Lauder makeup lady tried to sell me on coral and jade tones at about the same age. That blue green looks AMAZING on brown skin! And I am always jealous of how my sisters of colour can wear a blue eyeshadow that just pops, whereas on me it fades away.

        • Lisa

          It’s okay, ladies – rebel away.  I used to work for Estee Lauder – they generally don’t know what the fuck they’re talking about!

      She looks beautiful, but you don’t dethrone the Queen so easily. Long live the real Queen; this one’s just a lady in waiting.

      That’s just ripping of Diana Ross from 1977. Nothing original there.

      Isn’t this the same dress that Carrie Underwood wore to the Grammys but in a different color?

      She looks gorgeous, but I never like the “here is my ass” pose, no matter how fabulous that ass is.

      Very Diana Ross, I love the hair on her.  Big improvement.  I’d prefer silver strappy stilettos rather than the black patent pumps but overall she looks smashing.

      She’s looking pretty great lately, so much netter than her usual outfits of dubious taste.

      Stunning!  Love the ombre effect of the beading.  It’s got to be heavy as heck, but it’s sexy and tasteful.  And I love the hair.  Wow.

    • Lisa

      Nope.   Just because she *can* do Diana Ross doesn’t mean she *should* do Diana Ross – because this wasn’t a good look for Diana Ross either.  It’s just overly sparkly crazy lady circa 1980.

      Totally off topic, but I thought her beauty mark was a spot on my monitor and tried scraping it off with my nail for like 20 seconds lol … took me a while to realize it was there to stay … other than that, I absolutely ADORE Badgley Mischka <3 Amazing.
