Usually the red carpet for these award shows are just hot mess after hot mess! Foolishness after foolishness, and tacky followed by tacky, but “5 Star Chick”Â Trina wowed me in her get-up:
Oh my lawd! Trina looked amazing in Robert Rodriguez! The classy, crisp white button down with puffy shoulders, paneled skirt, multi-chain necklace, and while you can’t see them–black booties. Trina usually bores me, and has me asking “who done it and why?” when I see her, but she looked wonderful the night of the Hip-Hop Awards. While her female rap contemporaries chose to bare it all, Trina kept it very classy and beautiful! (Girl, keep this stylist…and make-up artist and hair stylist) Now, Robert Rodriguez could set you a back a few hundreds, and even thousands, but why drop that much when you can look just as good for less?
While Trina’s Robert Rodriguez Peaked-Shoulder blouse will run you upwards of $200, you can get a similar look with Victoria Secret’s French Cuff Shirt. This Sheer Paneled Skirt is available from my favorite UK shop ASOS and the go to spot for inexpensive baubles like this Twisted Bead Chain Necklace is of course, Forever 21.
