WERQ: Queen Latifah in Carmen Marc Valvo

Posted on May 10, 2013

Isn’t it kind of funny how, upon viewing the smoking wreckage of the Met Gala red carpet, we naively declared that we were totally sick of gowns and we didn’t want to see them anymore? To quote Cher the Lesser, “AS IF.”

Besides, this merited some observation:

Hands to JESUS.  She is serving up PERFECTION in hair, makeup, and jewelry. She nailed all three. Not that she didn’t nail the dress, which also looks spectacular on her, but we’re not in love with the sequined dishtowels tucked into her waist; that odd little half-peplum thing. Still, that’s such a minor complaint when you’re looking at a lady who looks this good. She is WERQing that old-school Diva look like the lights just came on in the club and Mama’s not planning on a cold mattress that night. Circle-of-GIVING-US-LIFE snaps, girl.
