MARS VS VENUS CRITIQUES A DATE NIGHT LOOK

Rihanna Date Night

Mars thinks – My first thought after viewing this image was – I think Venus would wear this. Super simple yet still pretty cool. I often think Rihanna’s style is a bit too daring for my approval, but I like this outfit for a cool date night. There are several options for accessories and footwear. How many of you would try this look?

What do you guys think about Gabrielle's frock? Weigh in now!

What do you guys think about Gabrielle’s frock? Weigh in now!

Mars thinksI’m not a fan of this dress. This frock almost had me, but I think I’m thrown off by that solid underlay near the bottom. Fortunately for Gabby, almost nothing looks bad on her. I’d suggest most steer  clear of copying this look for their wedding festivities.

Mars thinksSooooo, I have a thing for elbow pads. That is actually what caught my eye and caused me to select this look. The sweater / jeans / shoe color combination is on point. No socks and dress shoes doesn’t always work, but I think its pulled off nicely here. Dude definitely gets my approval on these threads. In fact, my wife probably thinks this outfit is already in my closet.

What do you think of Ray J's play on Coming To America?

What do you think of Ray J’s play on Coming To America?

Mars thinksLooks like Ray J was inspired by Coming To America. His personality totally allows him to rock this look with his chest out. Definitely over the top for me and plenty men preparing to jump the broom, but it works for Brandy’s brother. Enough jokes…he gets the thumbs up from your favorite cousin.

What are your thoughts on Keke Palmer's white jumpsuit?

What are your thoughts on Keke Palmer’s white jumpsuit?

Mars thinks – Oh my…Akeelah has grown up. This outfit looks extremely comfortable, has major sex appeal, yet doesn’t give off the impression of trying too hard. This definitely gets the thumbs up from me. Great for summer nuptials or to wear to your next destination wedding. I’m sure Venus can advise on how to best accessorize this look. To please me, just throw on some high uncomfortable shoes that make those calves “pop.”

What do you think about Garcelle Beauvais "pretty in pink" jumpsuit?

What do you think about Garcelle Beauvais’s “pretty in pink” jumpsuit?

Mars thinks – Although I typically love jumpers, this one doesn’t do it for me. This looks like one of the outfits you may only wear on vacation. It wouldn’t be my recommendation for Bridal Brunch threads, but not everyone follows my fashion advice. The jumper does however look extremely comfortable.  [Read more…]

Kelly Rowland red carpet

What do you think of Kelly Rowland’s Labourjoisie gown at the 2016 Billboard Awards?

Mars thinks -Wow! Just wow. Our loyal Mars vs. Venus followers should already know that I have a “thing” for Kelly (perhaps an understatement). Although a bit risky, I think this dress would be an excellent selection by a bride (with the body to slay) on her big day. The body hugging, fitting combined with the see-through panels is sure to capture all of the attention, without losing taste points. I’ll probably get in trouble with my wife if I say anything else.
