BET’s Celebration of Gospel aired on Sunday, and though it showcased some talented performances, the fashion was questionable and scary at times. I sometimes wonder if it is a flaw in the Gospel Industry where their craft blinds them from what’s “IN” in fashion. I know for a fact that God looks to our inner appearance. I know it, and I am so thankful. But He also gives us wisdom, understanding, and Discernment. Which means that those who Sing about Him should use these gifts in ALL accounts, to include their sense of style. We had Yolanda Adams in a peace-sign shirt and liquid leggings, Bobby Jones in Bubble Wrap, and Y’Anna Crawley with a terrible repilca of the exaggerated shoulder trend. Furthermore, the night ended with Donald Lawrence in a cream suit with vines and/or Christmas Light embellishment.
The worst of the night had to be Bobby Jones and Y’Anna Crawley who performed together.
We start with Dr. Bobby Jones in bubble wrap – A costume that only Lady Gaga could master..
Then we have the Talented Y’Anna Crawley come out with this Wizard/Snow White/Cinderella play gown – it was a very ameteur attempt to create the exaggerated shoulder. If its too expensive to work a trend, then don’t do it! Sometimes DIY goes wrong, and this was definitely the case. Her hair is great, her voice is ALWAYS on point, but I couldn’t get past that dress. I had the sudden urge to take a child swimming.. talk about floaties!
I would like to give a kudos to CeCe Winans who wore a very nice black dress – very Halston-esque.
And, to Yolanda Adams for her Red Carpet look – Much wiser than her performance look
