As far as beauty and talent goes, Melanie Fiona has a wealth of them both. I am always hoping to see her out and about more often and I am so happy that she is taking on high fashion looks.
She was seen at Black Girls Rock! 2011 in New York City rocking a dress from Proenza Schouler’s Fall 2011 collection. She paired it with Red Suede Cachet Slingback Pumps ($715) from Sergio Rossi. A beautiful mix of colors and textures, truly doing Proenza Schouler proud.
You might recognize this dress because Liv Tyler wore the same exact style to the 2011 CFDA Awards. She accessorized with black lace-up sandals, a black belt and a PS-11 clutch from the brand. Equally as flawless as Melanie, but just with more subtle accessories.
Both women looked stunning, but who wore it best? Melanie Fiona bringing out the dress’ colors with red pumps? Or Liz who went for a more subtle pairing with all-black accessories? Discuss!
