FLA stands for the “Fashion Los Angeles Awards” and you may have seen this hashtag all over for the past couple of days and that is because all “it” celebrities came together and attended this award show that was held at … ,LA this past Sunday. This is actually their Third Annual show and what a show it was. i honestly wish I had learned about this award show before but it seems like it is still young but growing!
Kim K presented the “Creative of the Year” award to Mert Alas. I know there a lot of Kim K fans out there but that dress did NOT do it for me at all and I am entitled to my own opinion as Fashion enthusisast myself, Thank You! I was a bit taken aback when I found out it was from Givenchy Haute Couture (F/W 2011) but even though I love the brand I did not really like this white gown. I loved the basic concept which was white and sheer (which also seemed to be the theme, along with Hadid) but I was not a fan of the embellishments on top. In my opinion, all the embellishments did not compliment her frame. It looked better on the runway model’s shoulder frame and arms than on Kim K. Believe me, it has nothing to do with the fact that Kim K is fuller than the model obivoulsThe bottom half, along with the bodysuit did look good on her though.
Fergie (sorry but not a fan of her choice of Dsquared2 dress and pair of shoes) dress herself presented the “Fashion Rebel” award to Nicki Minaj. Minaj wore a Versace number from the S/S 2017 collection. She did not wear a gown but she wore a short dress or of what looks like a very long vest jacket. She was wearing all Versace everything with the belt and boots also being Versace brand. Another brand I love, classic Versace. However, I do not like how Minaj or her stylist put it together. Honestly, I feel like something that could’ve been put together and worn in a chic way instead was cheapened. The boots are cool and different but don’t go with this ensemble. I don’t think that she accessorized well either, while the low cut plunge would call for a statement necklace, the lapel just does not go well with the kind of necklace she picked.
Jhene Aiko did not win an award but I think she still deserves a mention thanks to that outfit. This is one of the rare occasions when on an actual person looks better than on the runway! She is wearing an ensemble from “Hellessy” (Resort 2017) Athough the fit seems oversized on her nice petite frame it still carries the outfit well.
Other awards that I feel should be mentioned: Paris Jackson accepts the award of “Emerging Talent.” Ashton Kutcher presented the “Best Men’s Stylist” award to Samantha McMillen. Lee Daniels presented the “Fashion Visionary” award to Stephen Gan. “Best Women’s Stylist” went to Karla Welch. “Model of the Year” award went to Stella Maxwell. “Designer of the Year” award went to Jonathan Saunders of DVF (Diane von Furstenberg)
