Grammy '09 Red Carpet: YBF's Best Dressed

​ ​ ​ ​
Despite all the Grammy drama, YBF folks hit the carpet looking pretty damn fabulous tonight.  And here's a few of our faves: Jennifer Hudson is the comeback queen.  She rocked this knee length black and white origami RM by Roland Mouret Trenet dress for her red carpet look. Very different for her.  Hair and makeup were on point and she completed the look with a dash of color--blue Louboutin pumps. Even though I do think some jeweled strappy sandals would have looked even more perfect.  Her fiance David was her date for the night of course.  He said they've become much closer within the last few months.  And the reason he loves her so much is because she "just gets him 100%".  Well that is pretty sweet. I don't know where LeToya Luckett's been lately, but she surely hit tonight's red carpet looking extra fabulous: Loving the whole look.  Hot pink sateen mini dress with an over the top collar necklace, python exotic pink clutch, and extra high heeled sky blue pumps.  Something about the look just works for me.  Even if her shoes do look a bit big for her and this sleek look.  Barbie Dollish, but I'm feeling it. More pics when you read the rest... Whitney skipped out on the red carpet but hit the stage looking fab in this high slit blue and white strapless gown.  Another comeback queen. As much as we love to hate Kim K.: Chick worked it out in this "extra" girly silvery white mini dress with short train. The dress is by Australian designer Maticevski, jewelry by Bochic and Christian Louboutin heels. I couldn't help but love it and the over the top flower and silk organza.  Lovely look with the sleek bun. Eva LaRue doesn't age.  And chick looked quite fab in her royal purple mini dress and cute clutch.  Sam Jackson didn't even ruin her pic. Nasir looked extra clean in his white tux coat and shirt and scarf.  All he needed was a cigar for his old Hollywood casual glam look.  He flew solo without his newly preggers wife Kelis. And LL also looked handsome as usual. More pics of LeToya: And more pics of Jenny: Not the most exciting red carpet to date, but some fabulousness did ensue...

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

People, get ready, get real!

People, get ready, get real! No one reigns forever except Jesus Christ! Many of you speak out of ignorance in regards to Beyonce and Etta James. Despite the fact, Ms. James was once an addict, of all legends, Beyonce choose to portray her life on screen. When you work up close and personal with people, you learn about them. I believe Ms. James learned some things about Beyonce. Beyonce is attractive and sings well enough to get by. Her dancing consist of basically rolling around on the floor. People with originality don't search to do remakes but originate by creating their own. Sometimes I wonder where's the common sense of man. Do people know right from wrong? Do people have a conscious anymore? Do people know what's proper and improper? Can people recognize a lie from the truth? Can people not see that Kelly Rowland has been taking Europe by storm and now Beyonce is planning a tour in Europe. Is Beyonce's success in the U.S. not enough or is she full of greed like Etta James and many others have found her to be. Can the people not see that Beyonce is jealous hearted and wants to forever reign. You'd think since her father/manager failed to manage Kelly's career properly, she (Beyonce) wouldn't embark on Kelly's territory in Europe. Again, Beyonce is in competition with Kelly. Another thing, I hear Jay-Z was terribly upset with Chris Brown. I know Rhianna is his protege but can the people see, it's deeper than that. Beyonce may have married Jay-Z but does she have his heart. People marry for many reasons and not necessarily love. People wake up and see the real Beyonce! See beyond her beauty and you'll find little or no talent. What you will find is the beast that resides within her bosom.

The Grammy's in my opinion

The Grammy's in my opinion was okay but it wasn't as star studded as I thought it would be. Kim Kardashian definitely was my favorite look of the night. She killed it. A lot of females may hate on her, call her a slut, and question her "celebrity status", but no one can deny that the girl can dress. I love her style. Letoya look cute but she should have found some shoes that fit her damn feet.

I may not like her as an artist, but she's a beautiful, positive, and (seemingly) sweet black woman doing her thing who deserves to be treated like the Nubian Goddess she is. Chris Brown, I will not be supporting your punk ass any longer. I hope her big bro comes over here and finds your bitch ass and f*cks up that pretty little face of yours. If you couldn't tell, I can't stand men who put their hands on women.[/quote] I agree.This isn't the first time out the blue hes whupped her butt. This time she got fed u p with it an dis tired of smiling like its ok.She came from and abusive household too.Her father was a crackhead that abused her and her borhters abused her too. I'm surprise she didn't defend herself.I tell you the first time your hit or choked its a shock. My ex husband choked me and I was shocked he even did that too me.But the next day I pretended everything was fine.Fixed his breakfast and etc told him good bye.An that was the last day he saw me . The next week he was handed divorce papers adn Ididn't have too see him no more except for court. So Rihanna has been man handled all her life by MEN that say they love her and lastnight was the last time she wanted too deal with it. Chris Brown seemed like there was something hidden behind his nice and mannerable demeanor, and my ex husband was like that. But I didn't pick up on his abusive nature til we said I DO. My cousin picked up on it the first time we came too my Aunts house. When we date or marry someone we tend too see and hear what we want, and I pray RIhanna is ok and will find the strength too not go back. She must realiz eand forgive herself because it wasn't her fault. An in a verbal disagreement with your boyfriend or husband you should be able too argue without being hit when you're busted or caught Lying.[/quote] Why didn't this stay in the post it was in/relevant to?

Not feeling Jen's dress at

Not feeling Jen's dress at all. Looks like a napkin or something. LeToya looks faaaaaaaaaaaaab! Get it, Mama Whit Kim K pulled that dress off perfectly. Not very many women could've done that one... Whoever Eva LaRue is isn't impressing me. She looks ultra plain jane Nas is so fine and he looks quite dapper LL looks his usual (why all these rappers left their wives at home? Hov, Nas, AND LL?)

J-hud looked pretty not feeling the shoes with that dress...Her performance was so heart felt. Letoya looks cute but the shoes dont go with that dress..Kim K looked FAB! The best performances were: Carrie Underwood, "Swagga Like us" wit all top rappers, J Hud and Jonas Brothers w/ Stevie wonder. NO ONE SHOWED FOR THE GRAMMYS!!!! It was SUPER whack this year.

i'm glad i'm in cali so i can

i'm glad i'm in cali so i can post early since all you east coasters are sleeping getting ready for that dreaded monday. everyone looked fab. leyota looked extra cute. i've been glued to ybf about the whole "situation". ya'll know what i'm talking about. i loved justin's duet with al green. he is so soulful. desperate houswives came on as soon as jhud performed but i taped it so i will for sure be catching that! and say what you want about kim k.... bitch knows how to dress her ass off. and i love when she keeps her hair nice and sleek. she's so damn beautiful. i miss the fact that my girl bey wasn't there, but when duties call you gotta go make that paper. i never get into award shows, so i'll most likely just watch the performaces that i recorded. i did catch the swagger like us. m.i.a. looked like her ass was about to pop. i know what it's like the last days of pregnancy and i know she was tired as hell but she kept her energy up. why does kanye look like he was going to a prom in the 80's. he loves to be "different" i guess!

And all the Grammys did this

And all the Grammys did this year is make me vow not to complain about seeing the same old people. I was happy to have heard that Justin was replacing Chris Brown. At the start of this decade, honestly, Usher, Justin, Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, Alicia, Mary & Britney at 100% made the Grammys, The VMA's, The AMA's & the BET Awards worth watching. These new cats just dont have that same spark to me. I wish we could go back to 2001-2004 because thats when the award shows for this decade was at its best! Now its just soo dry!

I heard Bey was getting ready

I heard Bey was getting ready because her tour starts soon. IDK what is all this Etta James stuff yall hypin because some of her shows have been sold out in Europe already. Britney too eventhough the Grammys got something against her. And I saw pics of Usher working on his next album. Folks is planning for their next albums and tours and this Grammy Awards was wack anyway.

Not feeling Kim K's look,

Not feeling Kim K's look, everyone else looks like. Jennifer's performance was emotional. She did well. Looks good. Whitney looks like her old self again. Nice look for her. Nas looks handsome. LeToya looks cute. LL doesn't do anything for me, but he looks nice.

Yes Beyonce couldnt bring

Yes Beyonce couldnt bring herself to face the media yet, after the whole Etta incident. It's been reported numerous times that Beyonce is overly sensitive, and takes even the slightest remarks personally! Beyonce thought it be best to avoid this year's Grammys until this whole Etta thing dies down. Apparently she's been in tears for days and is too distraught. I personally think GROW UP BEYONCE, THAT'S LIFE!

I actually like J-Huds's dress. Shoes are different.I would've never paired that together but it doesn't look bad. Kim K. babygirl, you know I ALWAYS show you love. You're beautiful and ALWAYS on point when it comes to your dress code. I wish I could raid your closet. Stay fly and beautiful.
