Diddy's White Party: Glamour & Ghetto in One Place

As some of you may know, P.Diddy hosted his annual White Party in the Hamptons this past 4th of July weekend. Well, as expected, it was a star-studded event packed with lots of glamour, a bit of style and a few hot ghetto messes per usual. Peep the infamous countdown to Top 8 Best & Worst:

8. Diggy & Dad - BEST

As an avid fan of Run's House, I had to give the Simmons boys a quick shout out for steppin' out FRESH this year. Run is looking very crisp, while still age-appropriate in a clean crisp oxford. While Diggy, keeps it classy in a plain white tee and V-neck knit cardigan with the white-piped Ray Bans...wooo BOY. Can I tell yall how much I LOVE Diggy. A 13-year-old boy that can dress himself flyyer than a man twice his age? A young one after mine own heart...

7. Vanessa Simmons - WORST

Now, as much as I LOVE the Simmons family, not all siblings were created equal....
You would think as a shoe designer that she would be well aware of the widely known fashion faux pas: OVER-ACCESORIZING. Ok so you're good money with the dress itself - cute. Simple, collared shirtdress, chic. But THEN you wanna add a hat AND shades AND belt AND bag??!

TOO MUCH! Scale back, just a little sweetie...trust me it goes a long way. If I were Vanessa's stylist, I would've done the dress, NO HAT, NO SHADES. And definitely not this gold quilted Marc Jacobs bag from 4 seasons ago...you're a celebrity now, get an update baby.

6. Nicole Der*******(don't feel like looking up the spelling) - BEST

I absolutely LOVE the ethereal simplicity with which Ms. Nicole pulled off this look. I think she's dressed perfectly for the occasion. Simple, clean strapless white dress. Adorable headband with just a touch of white and gold. And then the soft waves set the right mood for the look she was trying to achieve. You see kids, it doesn't take that much to pull off a look. You just have to stick to the theme and exercise a little restraint. It goes such a long way!

5. Kim Porter - WORST

Speaking of simplicity, Kim Porter surely didn't take a lesson from that guidebook. I absolutely applaud her for keeping the emphasis on the headgear and toning it down a little with the dress. But no matter how beautiful she is, and how nice the other aspect of her attire are, I can't let this headband lean & rock...I'm SORRY but TOO MUCH. I'm all about the incorporation of ethnic pieces into wardrobe, but I think this headband could have been reworked a little and possibly tamed down just a FEW strands. Homegirl is looking like she just stepped out of Slumdog Millionaire. I love a good Bollywood, but not at Diddy's white party. Sorry Kim...

4. Amber Rose - BEST

Though I'm not usually a fan of baring this much skin, with a body like Amber's - it can certainly be done. What makes this ensemble great is that, although she chose to bare alot of skin out back, she keeps it very elegant with high-neck chiffon in front and she makes sure NOT to overdo it by pairing the skimpy top with flattering skinny white pants and dainty heels. And the face is just clean and glowing, as it should be at an affair like this one. Good job Amber. But where's Kanye??

3. Cassie - WORST

Cassie, oh Cassie...where do I begin? To start things off, this hairstyle is NOT growing on us! It was bad then and it's still bad now. Get some tracks sewn to the other half of that bald head and KEEP IT MOVIN...I'm done! Second, this is a white party, NOT a beach party. Take that bikini off under there and try a white underlininng next time? Sheesh...

2. Demi & Ashton - BEST

Who doesn't love this cute Hollywood couple? They're both looking chic from head to toe. Demi opted for a very clean, sophisticated look with the slick-back bun, this beautifully textured strapless dress with BANGIN accessories. I'm loving her cuff bracelet with the large white stones..and the SHOES? Do the stanky leg Demi, cuz ur doin the damn thing. And Ashton - how adorable is he, like all the time? He's looking very classic and well put together in this white suit paired with a simple white tee and shades...very nice, you two.

1. Lil' Kim - WORST

I mean, was this any surprise?? Sadly enough, this is one of the best outfits I've seen Lil' Kim rocking to date. That still doesn't take away the fact that it's trashy and over-the-top. It's gonna take a little more fabric in that midsection for me to believe Lil' Kim didn't cop this from the Stripper/Hoodrat collection on Crenshaw.

Anyone remember when Lil'Kim was black? Oh, had to throw this one in there...Purple star pasties anyone?? Ahh good times with Lil' Kim...
Pin It!


  1. 1. Great call on Vanessa's old ass Stam bag. Yes it's a classic but I honestly haven't seen it on any celebrity in a very long time.

    2. I'm not a fan of Amber's outfit. It looks like her neck just threw up a bunch of white tulle.

    3. lol @ thinking Cassie can sew some tracks in there...there's no hair for that. She's gonna have to glue MAD tracks onto that shiny baldness.

    4. I think Lil Kim's face was her own way of showing respect to Michael Jackson.

  2. LMFAO...that's why I love you ShaSha. Comments duly noted.
