Friday's Fashion Fails: Jordin Sparks and Gwen Stefani
Oops... even celebrities get it wrong sometimes! We're telling you why Jordin Sparks and Gwen Stefani's fashions fell short in our weekly feature. Learn from the stars' sartorial slip ups!
Let's start with the positive, shall we? American Idol alum Jordin Sparks shed 50 pounds and her body is rocking, but you can't really tell from this Chagoury Couture dress she chose for the Teen Choice Awards in LA. Sure, her legs look amazing, but the empire waist on this black frock combined with the poufy skirt and short hem don't show off her svelte figure.
The bodice of the dress, with the sequins and flower designs, looks tacky and reminds us of something we might have worn to a high school dance. She also paired the outfit with purple Prada shoes, which don't really match anything.
The final verdict? Jordin's dress feels very '90s to us (and not in a good way), but we love her pretty diamond drop earrings by Simon G and the sleek ponytail. We'd love to see the Sparkle starlet flaunt her slimmed-down self in an Herve Leger bandage dress.
The No Doubt singer chose this Blumarine pantsuit on a week when the temps in NYC are topping 90 degrees F, and we can't imagine how she's not sweating to death in long sleeves and pants. Comfort factor aside, this look is pretty fierce, but the leopard on leopard on leopard is a bit much.
Animal prints are very in, but this is overkill. We can handle the blazer and pants together, but it would have been great to break up the patterns with a black tank underneath.
The final verdict? This is an easy fix. By trading just one of the printed pieces for a solid, Gwen would get our style props. And we totally approve of her red lip and her chic sunglasses: Both of those are always a do.
