Red Carpet Fab


YBF Trend: Exotic Skinned Accessories

Hey Young, Black, and Fabulous folks! It's Claire from The Fashion Bomb, the web's only stop for urban fashion, trends, and celebrity looks for less! For my first guest blogspot, I'm going to let you in on a Hollywood trend: Exotic Accessories. Aside from their posh aesthetic, bags, bel

The 2008 ESPY Awards

Are we seriously rocking a bedazzled un-tied tie Braylon Edwards?  You're too cute for that.  

Ashanti was there rocking a cute long maxi dress.

Keisha and Forest Whitaker looked cute on the red carpet.  

And Fergie kicked it with the National Championship Boston Celtics.  

Do Gooders

 Alicia Keys and J-Hud are in the UK for the Keep A Child Alive Black Ball:


She was escorted by her younger brother.


Both ladies are looking pretty fab.  But I'm not a fan of flat sandals (even embellished ones) on a gala-style red carpet. Fashion is pain so no I don't care if your feet are sore.  Nice look still for Jenny though.   And in the NYC last night, Chris Rock, wife Malaak, and Jurnee Smollett all turned out for the "Kevin Powell For Congress" Fundraiser:

That's Mr. Powell on the left of course.  Malaak is looking pretty fab too even with that suspect looking wig she's been rocking these days.

And Jurnee rocked a cute laid back but chic look.  Loves this chick.   More pics from these two events when you read the rest...

The Hancock Hollywood Premiere

All kinds of celebs came out for Will Smith's Hollywood premiere of Hancock:

Jada killed the red carpet in that green gown.   But her hubby's choice of 3 piece suit is way too caddyish for me.

Of course all The Smiths came out to support dad.

Newlyweds Tia Mowry and Cory Hardrict made a fab appearance.

Diddy brought his mini me Christian Carter.

Latifah looked like she walked straight off the gym's treadmill/Jenny commercial set to this red carpet.

And of course...Will and Jada got frisky.  Loves them. Lots more pics from the premiere when you read the rest...

2008 BET Awards Red Carpet, Part 2

So we've checked out the hottest looks, now on to the foolish and everyone else:

Seriously Pretty Ricky?  I guess I should consider this an upgrade since last year they wore silver metallic suits with smoking robes on top in the 300 degree heat.  This year it's just the gold metallic suits.  I'm still mad though.

Oh so now we're bringing our new man Kenyon Martin on the red carpet Trina?  I guess.

While I actually loved her sexy yellow dress and thought she looked fab in it repping for the CGU click, that damn camp LV bag really threw it all off.  Unnecessary. And as for Ashanti's look:

I liked the Marchesa gown, but it wasn't the most fabulous pick she could have chosen to me.  Especially because she couldn't keep that mess closed enough all night. More of the foolishness and everyone else who hit the red carpet last  night when you read the rest...

2008 BET Awards Red Carpet

YBF was on the scene of last night's BET Awards rec carpet.  And you know how we do.  Let's kick this off with the hottest looks of the night:



Rihanna rocked a gorgeous floor length ruffled soft yellow Giambattista Valli gown.  Not loving the wintery makeup for such a summery dress.  But chick looked fabulous nonetheless.

Ms. Keys rocked the hot Sergio Rossi shoes to set off her pink David Meister strapless dress.  Loved the look.

These three ladies killed the red carpet.  Malika looked cute in her simple red dress, Lauren London rocked a French Connection dress with the some of the hottest Givenchy booties ever, and Cassie's Vivienne Westwood dress was surprisingly hot.  I just wish she would have added some of that spray on wrinkle-free Downy that only cost a dollar.

And um, Nelly.  Self-explanatory. Lots more of BET's best dressed and hot looks when you read the rest...

BET Awards Foolywang Material

Here's the looks we were not feeling on tonight's BET Awards Red Carpet:


Keri Hilson looked like she was about to hit up Studio 54 in the hood in this silver sequins pantsuit.  Not loving the look.  You're too fab for this Keri.

And of course Kim Ho Chi Min hit the carpet with her Barbie Doll lacefront nice and fresh.  And the Marc Jacobs designed LV bedazzled purse was just not the business.  The dress itself is pretty hot but the all around look on Ms. Kimmy is just....yeah. More of the ish we did not love straight off the BET Awards red carpet when you read the rest...
