Yay or Nay: Jessie J's Red Carpet Style

Monday May 28, 2012 by Alexandra C.



Despite her occasional garish appearance, I actually like to count myself as a fan of Ms Jessie J. She's kind of quirky, she's hip and she does her own thing in the best possible way. Which is why I wasn't surprised to see her hit the red carpet in this velvety sheer number with a thigh high slit at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala. 


What I like about this dress is that's it's all Jessie J. From the oxblood red colour to the leopard pattern, this screams Jessie. Here's what I don't like about this outfit: it's showing a heck of a lotta skin. I mean, what possible undergarments would one even wear under this? Talk about feeling a breeze. 

While I can appreciate a high slit for a bit of sex appeal, this is just way too high. Add that to the bizarre diagonal slit in the front (top) of the dress, and babe, you've become one hot mess. I don't mind the pattern of this gown and I even like the cut. But those slits are way too much. Get rid of the front one and sew up those sides and you've got yourself a classy and chic outfit. 

What do you think of this look? Was I too hard on her? Leave a comment with a yay or nay - vote by June 3rd and you could win!

Too much slit.

While I agree that those slits are way too extreme, I am a YAY on this one. Love the pattern and the colour of the dress, and I think that if anyone can pull this one off it is Jessie J.!

I think it looks fantastic on her! I'd be afraid to wear it myself and I'd be afraid for her just in case there's a wardrobe malfunction... for that reason if I were to wear this, the slit would be a couple inches lower. It still shows a lot of leg that way but there's no chance of a surprise.

Verdict: Yay. She pulls it off, she just needs to be careful.

I'm not partial to the dress, but I'm not Jesse J. I think she owned the look, so good for her.

I like the dress but it just doesn't look good on her! Combined with those boot (which are awesome separately too) it's nay!
