Suga & Steez: The 2010 Grammys Award Show

Although I had a great time twittering with my followers on my Twitter Sunday night, overall, the Grammy’s were terribly boring. I had more fun with the AMAs a couple months back. But there were some noticeable highlights on the show.

The Michael Jackson Tribute where Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, Usher and others sang trubute to the King. Usher was a bit weak on his vocals, but Carrie surprised with some impressing ones.

Beyonce wins big at the Grammys, taking home 6 trophies – the most ever won by a female artist in a single night. She preformed a Medley of, If I Were a Boy and Alanis Morisette’s You Oughta Know. I found the performance a bit bland, but Beyonce killed on the vocals, as usual.

Lady Gaga showed up like this but gave a solid performance alongside special guest, Elton John. I liked the overall theme of her show; performance-wise, she never disappoints! She should also be happy she took home two Grammys: Best Electronic Dance Album & Best Dance Recording for Poker Face.

Suga & Steez: The VMA Awards Edition

The biggest events of last night’s VMAs were shrouded in drunken hip hop star buffoonery and stage-crashing hilarity. So much so that we almost forgot to care about what everyone was wearing! Sadly one of my fave red-carpet wearers, Rihanna was not present, but the ladies still showed up and showed out last night in some sweetly memorable frocks.¬† Here are some of my ChokLit faves!

The Frocks

Solange Knowles showed off her shorter do, complimented with a sleek fitted black dress that is adorned with a beautiful bow. I also am loving her satin-dressed heels. I notice Solange is wearing heavier makeup nowadays, possibly to take away for the lack of weave, but still, I’m loving this look on her!

Keri isn’t playing this time around in this satin jumper with the very low zipped-down front and white zig-zag accents on the shoulders. She is repping for the tomboys and I digg that about Ms Hilson. The hair is always on point. I guess Keri has taken Ciara’s spot as the female ATL ambassador @ the MTV awards…Go Keri?

And of course we can’t forget about B. Not always my fave red carpet beauty, but I am definitely loving this red satin (again, I guess satin is that material right now) number with the open ruffled front. Its a simple look that Beyonce pairs with black satin close-toes sandals. Her hair is that loose wave again. B definitely plays it safe this time around and I’m not mad at her. Can we talk about her bracelet for a hot second tho – F-A-B ūüôā

I don’t know about ya’ll, but I was actually pleased to see J.Lo back on the red carpet again. Made things feel comfortable again. Jennifer looked great – what twins?? I will just have to ask her to remove the satin-y shawl (I am getting sick of typing the word satin). The dress works, the shoes work, the slicked-back hair and makeup work and we’ll leave it at that. Welcome back J.Lo – I seen you get buck when Miss Janet made her entrance for her Scream/MJ Tribute performance. A true dancer at heart.

Suga & Steez: New Brooklyn Rocawear Campaign

I found this Ad on Kanye’s Blog and thought I’d share. Sometimes I chuckle when I think of the Rocawear Brand of clothing. Their advertisements always¬†portray the clothes (and the people who wear them) as Affluent, Youthful, Urban and Sexy.¬† But the actual clothes themselves can range from semi-fresh to¬†downright tacky! Also, they can be found anywhere from T.J Maxx or Winners to Unica or Dr.Jay’s.

But I won’t front, ya girl has rocked some Rocawear pieces with the Quickness and has done it well! I have a sassy pair of gold & black Rocawear sandals with a zipper up the heel that do NOT play!rocajacket2

And I love my mesh Rocawear casual jacket with embellishments on the zipper!

So it is always a toss-up with their clothes in my opinion. I haven’t bought anything from their new collection, but I have seen some cute pieces.¬† And their Men’s stuff is ok as well…but if I want to talk about Urban Men’s clothing, I will only talk about Coogi. But we’ll leave that for a future post.
