Let’s start with Mariah Carey…

Mariah Carey yellow Balenciaga biker jacket We love us some Mariah Carey. Wish we could sing like her because then we’d be rich like her and we’d be out on a yacht in some exotic locale sipping something divinely intoxicating instead of sitting in front of a computer screen discussing what Mariah was wearing when she joined Courtney Love for dinner at Craig’s in West Hollywood, California, last Sunday.

Mariah was dressed in what appears to be a black flared skirt with a black fitted top, black tights, black leather knee high stiletto boots and a pastel yellow Balenciaga biker style jacket.


We read through some comments left on other sites about Mariah’s outfit and some people seem to be of the opinion that Mariah has odd taste in clothes and needs a new stylist.

What do you think?

Our thoughts on Mariah’s outfit…

Mariah Carey yellow Balenciaga biker jacket black leather knee high boots It’s totally Mariah. And Mariah is Mariah. You can’t expect Mariah to dress like anybody but Mariah. And Mariah dresses how Mariah dresses.

She’s a sexy woman. She’s youthful and ageless. She’s vibrant and fun. She’s daring. She’s confident.

So we’re giving her look the thumbs up because we admire her fearless approach to style. We’re inspired by her attitude. She couldn’t give two figs what anyone thinks. She’s gonna do whatever she wants, including dressing the way she wants to dress.


What item(s) do we want to steal from Mariah’s look?

  • The Balmain jacket
  • The necklace (although we wouldn’t have advised Mariah to wear that particular necklace with her outfit if we had been her stylist)

Next up Khloe Kardashian…

Here’s another lady who doesn’t let other people break her stride.

Khloe recently wore a white skin tight Balmain cage dress for a hosting gig at 1 OAK Nightclub at the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

She chose a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps to wear with the dress. According to her facebook page the dress was a gift from her sister Kim.

She wrote:

Kimmie gave me this dress as a Christmas present. I love love love this dress!!! Thank you keeks!

What item(s) do we want to steal from Khloe’s look?

  • The Balmain dress (although we probably wouldn’t have the nerve to wear it in public)
  • The Louboutin pumps

Amanda Seyfried…

Amanda attended the premiere of her latest film While We’re Young in New York City on Monday wearing a red Valentino dress with red Givenchy pumps. She had her hair done up in a couple of braids. Check her out on the red carpet talking about how she absorbs bits and pieces of the characters she plays and how she’s looking forward to her 30s.


What do you think of Amanda’s look?

While we’re not necessarily feeling Amanda’s hairstyle for the occasion we do think it’s a cute hairstyle in and of itself. Just not how we would have done our hair to go with the look. The look itself is lovely. Nothing over the top. A nice cute dress with elegant sandals.

What item(s) do we want to steal from Amanda’s look?

  • The Valentino dress
  • The Givenchy sandals

And now for Jennifer Lawrence…

Jennifer Lawrence Dior striped top black skirtJennifer was photographed while exiting the Greenwich Hotel last Saturday in New York City. She was wearing a Dior sweater and a Dior skirt under a black coat. She also wore black Manolo Blahnik pumps and Tom Ford sunglasses.

Some internet commenters felt that Jennifer’s outfit was a little too mature for her.

What do you think?

We think she looked perfectly fine. She’s a grown lady. 24 isn’t too young to wear a mature look. If she’s dressed like she could be someone’s mom, well we have news for you, 24 is as much mom age as 34. There are plenty of 24 year old women who are someone’s mom.


What item(s) do we want to steal from Jennifer’s look?

  • The Dior cropped print sweater
  • The Dior skirt
  • The Tom Ford sunglasses
  • The Manolo Blahnik pumps

And finally Christie Brinkley…

Christie Brinkley leaving NBC studios in NYC on March 24thChristie Brinkley was photographed while leaving NBC studios in NYC on March 24th. She was wearing an Alaia dress with Burberry sandals.  Can you believe Christie Brinkley is 61 years old. No way right? This woman looks seriously amazing. She apparently credits her youthful looks to a vegan lifestyle and always protecting her skin from the sun. But let’s face it, most of us will never look like this at 61 no matter what we do.

One thing that is definitely in Christie’s favor and something that’s in all of our control–she maintains a svelte figure and she doesn’t dress the way society tells her she should dress for being in her sixties. Christie Brinkley leaving NBC studios in NYC on March 24th 2Take notes ladies who are letting people pressure you into dressing a certain way because you are older than 30. Style matters; and you might be making yourself look and feel older by dressing as if you’re no longer entitled to have fun with your life.

Do you think Christie Brinkley dresses too youthfully for her age?

We think Christie dresses just fine. She’s an inspiration. But we can’t help wondering what her life is like. She looks amazing. She doesn’t look like she’s 61. But she is 61. So does she get treated according to the age she looks or does she get treated according to the age that she is? Does she feel as youthful and vibrant and alive as her smile and the look in her eyes suggest? Because the reality for many women is that natural things start to happen to them as early as age 35. And some of these things take away not just their youthful looks but also their youthful energy. So we’re curious to know if Christie deals with the same things as the average 60 year old even while looking better than many 40 year old women.

What item(s) do we want to steal from Christie’s look?

  • The Alaia dress
  • The Burberry shoes
  • The trench coat

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for avenuesixty.com. First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional qualifications and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by qualified persons on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person.
