Kim Kardashian and Kanye West go matchy matchy to the BET Awards

If last night's BET awards are any indication, please tell me that matchy-matchy is not back in style for couples. Say it isn't so.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West go matchy matchy to the BET Awards

Dear Fashion Gods:

If last night's BET awards are any indication, please tell me that matchy-matchy is not back in style for couples. Say it isn't so. We did like Kim Kardashian's white, long-sleeved (yes long sleeves can be sexy) Versace-like white dress that looked like it has an open zipper along the back. But did rapper Kanye West have to wear a sloppy pair of white jeans and a T-shirt? Why was he trying to match with her? Or did he even notice? Maybe they were test-driving outfits for Diddy's Labor Day white party in the Hamptons? Whatever it is, make it go away.

And what exactly did you style gods all have in mind when you inspired Jay-Z to squeeze in that shiny gray suit. Again, his wife  Beyonce's one-shouldered chartreuse dress by Stephane Rolland was almost on point - the jury is out on the stalagmite-style belt. But Jay and the white shoes made the couple look stodgy. Not vintage, stodgy. Okay, the white shoes were better than sneaks, I guess, but it all seemed so forced. Why do I feel that there is going to be a run on men's white shoes this week?

What do you think? 

That is all, fashion gods.

Love,

Elizabeth  

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
