Kela on the Karpet @ 2013 MTV VMA’s
by Kéla Walker
Sunday I got the opportunity to cover the 2013 MTV VMA’s red carpet. That may sounds pretty exciting but considering my credentials were confirmed just 48 hours before the red carpet rolled out, it was a little stressful to say the least (I literally got my dress 4 hours before press check in ) but thank GOD the Glam squad came together.
Kontinue to see my take on the Red Carpet and Kela on the Karpet style
Before we get into what I wore to cover the first global show to take place in Brooklyn, NYC, Let’s talk about what the stars wore for the 2013 MTV VMA’s red carpet or specifically the ones I liked (keepers) didn’t like (Kan it) and the ones that simply made me say WTF.
KAN IT or Worse Dressed Why is it that the most famous celebrities always wear the worse stuff. Just because you are at the top of the A- List doesnt mean you show up wearing whatever which is exactly what Gaga, Miley and Katy Perry did. But no matter what these ladies wear, people will talk about them no less hence their tendency to wear whatever they want – good, bad or indifferent.
KEEPERS: I can not say enough how much I love Love LOVED these two ladies. The stepped onto the karpet and SLAYED!! It’s a pretty coincidence that they both wore color feathers. Rita wearing Alexandre Vauthier and Ciara in Givenchy (which is a monochromatic version of Beyoncé’s 2012 Met Gala). Bother of them left a trail of fabulousity behind them. Perfect way to get people talking considering I cant tell you whether Rita Ora sing or Raps and Ciara was selling her latest work on Groupon. NO SHADE. I know they can never wear these dress again but they are definitely KLOSET KEEPERS!
Lastly these ladies left me thinking WTF, wanting to issue them Kloset Servie Announcements. For one both Snooky and JWow make way too much money & have too many resources to step onto the carpet dressed like old ladies in cheap looking gowns. Ok there, I said it. It’s like they go from one extreme to another – young and reckless to old and haggard. There is a between style and ladies this AINT it. YOu need better people. Oh, How I love Lil Kim but this look is just another WTF moment in her style rolodex. Ashanti on the other hand looks good from a far but far from good. I saw her in person and lets just say she needs a little more gym time before she wear that dress. Perhaps that was mean. I’m sorry but my eyes dont want. it.
Okay NOW TO ME
As I mentioned I was in a bit of a scramble for something to wear ot the VMA’s . Nothing quite hit the spot in my kloset so I was beyound gratefule when my friend and YRB fashion Director Darius Baptist came through for me and let me borrow one of the dress in his arsenal. I had the perfect shoes ( purchased 4 years ago and never worn before) to compliment the stunner dress. Can I tell you that I purchases them at a sample sale from a brand going out of business. I dont ever do white shoes but these were too damn cool to pass up + Super stylist June Ambrose has them. My girlfriend and MUA Shakira came over to my place to do my makeup and things just fell into place. Thank you GOD!! I love it when He makes a plan come together.
The calm before the Celebrity Storm
I’m so happy I was able to fit my havaianas sandals in my purse. I couldn’t switch into them fast enough
Today’s Kloset Pull or in this case I should say “Kloset Loan”
