What She Should Have Worn: Fergie & Jessica

It is a norm in the life of any contemporary professional stylista to attend special events, whether it’s a co-worker’s wedding, a new year’s eve party, a movie premiere or an awards show. These two #CPS decided to strut their stuff on the red carpet of the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

Fergie, aka “mommy-to-be” wore a colorful fitted long-sleeved dress from Mary Katrantzou’s Spring 2012 collection. We all know Fergie has a great body so a body con style dress is a no brainier  but the print of her dress paired with the background of the “step and repeat,” was a bit much for our taste.

Also in attendance was one of our favorite “west coast lovelies,” Jessica Alba. This mother of two is back on the scene, also in a classy number by Mary Katrantzou! Alba once again has graced us with her Southern California charm and beauty but we would have loved to see her pair such a gorgeous dress with more suitable accessories, in style and color.

So we decide to “#WSSHW” our favorite “fergalicious fashionista” and so-cal version of “the girl next door.”

Which Celebrity Couple Are You?


Barack and Michelle O: You came up together. Before either of you made it you were rocking with each other, from hooptie cars, top ramon noodle meals, and tiny apartments. You know what it means for love to keep you warm at night. Despite the hardships you stuck with it, believed in each other, and now you’re running the show. There’s nothing like sharing success with the man or woman who loved and supported you as you moved from the bottom to the top.


Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel: America’s sweethearts! You two just match. Youthful, vibrant, and exciting the two of you are magnetic and you understand your roles in the relationship. Your love is fresh and lively. It just feels good!


Jay and Bey:  Let me upgrade you. You both were hot but being with the other person made you even better. You two just fit, like a hand in glove and success follows everything you touch. You look good together, work well together, and make things happen, together. You hold each other down and look great while doing it.


Kate Middleton and Prince William: A cinderella story. He was the man when you met. He had everything at his fingertips but that didn’t intimidate you. You’re intelligent, beautiful, and stylish. You know your worth and stand your ground with dignity and grace. You got your fairytale ending and proved you don’t have to be born into royalty to be made for it. 


Khloe and Lamar: It came as a complete surprise. You knew Singledom all too well but met the perfect match that swept you off your feet. It was a whirlwind romance that only took you moments to realize you were made for each other. You both sacrifice to support each and put all you have into making your love work. By making each other top priority you have been able to sustain a relationship that others love and adore.


Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith: You prove good love lasts and withstands hardship. Young and fresh when you first fell in love, your relationship has withstood the test of time, success, and family. Despite life’s stress you make your relationship last on your own terms. People may not understand how you make it work but it makes no difference to you. You love each other and your love looks so good it heartens everyone around you.


Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt: It may have started off shaky, but you two are going strong. The world just seems to be better now that you are together, and you look good while making things happen.


Vince and Tamar: A little crazy, nagging, and chaotic but madly in love. Sound familiar? If your’re like Tay Tay you may have a smart mouth but your boo knows how to handle it. He may sit quitely while you listen to yourself talk, engage in a little bickering, perhaps leave the room, and when necessary he will shut all your talking down. The key to this relationship is reading the other person and knowing when to just be quiet. At the end of the day you love each other and after every squabble you ultimately make up.


Nick and Mariah: Everyone did not understand it at first. People did not think you should be together and couldn’t understand the match. Yes, you had some haters in the beginning but so what. Opposites attract and you could not resist each other. You made it through all the nay sayers and created an amazingly tight bond. The heck what others think, you two are in love, and it works.


Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibson: Hurt so badly in the past, you had given up on love. You built up a wall so high to protect your heart from being broken again. Then you met someone patient, loving, and so into you, that you couldn’t help but fall in love again. You experienced what you never thought you would ever again, love and trust. Proof that sometimes the best mend for a broken heart is good love, you just have to trust enough to let someone in your heart again.
