What is “VH1’s ‘Dear Mama’ Event,” you might ask? Darlings, it’s a thing. All you need to know is that it’s about honoring moms, which we are about to do by judging their outfits. Join us, won’t you? For the moms.
Okay. Give us a second here.
On the one hand, girlfriend has every right to celebrate the slammin’ qualities of her bod situation. Also: she gets credit for making a concerted effort to be interesting at the same time.
On the other hand, this is one major cray of a look. We might get behind the top half, but the split pants are a no.
Pretty. Church dress with a plunge. On a different kind of red carpet, we might have asked for more oomph somewhere in the look, but this seems about right.
This, on the other hand, is a bit much. And when we say “a bit,” we of course mean “way too.”
Trust Mary J. to thread the needle perfectly. “Fierce Mama” is the style brief and she pretty much embodies that one. We’re not a hundred percent on that bustier, but it’s definitely her style and the white suit makes the perfect accompaniment. We just wish she’d kept her signature shades on for the shot. It would’ve perfectly completed the look.
