Mary J. Blige in Catherine Malandrino (x2)

Posted on June 11, 2012

Oh Mary J. Blige we love you get up.

We love you mostly because you are an old-school diva who brings it in ways your younger, lesser counterparts simply have yet to master. That doesn’t mean you don’t dress a little crazy. In fact, the Way of the Diva practically requires the occasional cracktastic outfit. How very kind of you to provide us with two to talk about.

This is an INSANELY difficult dress to make work. And while we can’t say we totally love it, we are damn impressed with how well she’s pulling it off. Sure; to us, it looks a little like a trash bag dress, but Miss Mary is coming damn close to making it sing.

In London, she went in a different direction:

Pure Tina Turner in Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, amirite? We don’t need another hero, bitches. We have ourselves a DIVA. Again, we don’t really love it, and we can’t say she’s WERQing it, but she’s taking an extraordinarily difficult dress to wear and just about pulling it off.
