Why Did or Why Don’t: Take a Bow…
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did or Why Don't?

rihanna_cfdaIn case you don’t follow anyone on Instagram and haven’t yet seen the sparkly get up that bad gal, RiRi wore to accept the CFDA award for “Fashion Icon of the Year” last night, here she blows.  At first look I was thoroughly impressed with the beautiful old Hollywood glamour she opted for, but her shiny… and see through custom Adam Selman dress was met with mixed reviews.  Some applauded her while others were appalled.  Rihanna is no newbie to controversy and raising a few well groomed eyebrows.  I mean, this isn’t her first appearance on WhyDid either… she was here, here, and here for starters.  And while I am not always a fan of her muppetesque hair and her choices in men (ha! who am I to talk?), I do love that she seems to have absolutely no problem doing, saying, and wearing whatever she damn well pleases, which are probably all factors as to why she was even presented with the award.  Her hair, makeup, and accessories were perfection and if anyone is going to go nearly nude to an awards show, thank heavens it was someone with her body as opposed to say, Steve Carell’s.  The more I think about it, Rihanna is one smart cookie.  She went ahead and took out all the possibility of an accidental nip slip and just came in with all guns blazing.  And honestly, if you do follow her on Instagram, you’ve already all but seen her naked, so why are we all so shcocked?  But enough about me… Rihanna’s look: too much or never enough?

Why Did You Wear That: Body Party
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

celebrity body jewelryWe’ve covered the bikini, the coverup and we already know how I feel about poolside footwear. Another not so obvious sunbathing accessory… that could potentially lead to some awkward tan lines, but you’re wearing enough SPF as to avoid that… is body jewelry. Specifically body chains. I have a couple of necklaces I next to never take off, but catapulting bling to the next level is the body chain worn with your bikini bod. It’s not as if you’re going to be doing laps like an Olympic swimmer and I’m willing to bet that if you’re anything like me, the only time you’ll subject your skin to a chlorinated public pool is when your dermis has actually reached the temperature right before incineration. Should you not be bold enough to bare your belly, another iteration is the hand chain which is another celebrity favorite at this very moment… and don’t you wanna be just like Beyonce?

Why Did or Why Don’t: Cuffing Season
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did or Why Don't?

celebrit ear cuffsI wasn’t even allowed to get my ears pierced until I was ten (double digits, ya’ll) and I had to get them done by our family doctor.  No joke.  As you can probably guess a second hole or the oh so trendy upper ear piercing was completely out of the question- although my mom did take me to get my belly button pierced by a guy wearing a t-shirt with a picture of a squirrel endowed with overgrown nuts on it.  When I was 18 or maybe 19, my best guy friend and I went and got our upper ears pierced.  As I typed that, I realized how absolutely ridiculous it sounds.  He’s married with a child now and I have the grown over scar of that stunt leftover.

So when celebrities started stepping out with extravagant ear wear (side note: ears are gnarly looking when not in context with the human head.  Ahem, Van Gogh), I wondered if we were going to start stacking our ears up with bling like we’ve done with our wrists and now fingers.  I mean, I guess it’s a good way to add sparkle without adding extra holes.  But is this trend destined to go the route of its distant cousin, the arm cuff?  You remember, that time we all thought it would be a great idea to cut off circulation to our biceps and in turn accentuate any and all upper arm flab.

Weekend Playlist: 2013, We Out.
Written by: WhyDid | Weekend Playlist

miley cyrus destinys child nsync2013 was a very interesting (by interesting I mean coma inducing) year when it came to music in my humble opinion.  I am not, nor have I ever claimed to be a music expert, but if even I was bored, I can only imagine how audio afficianados must have felt.  All genres started to blend together just as the days of the week started to blend together for me.  Is it Tuesday night or Saturday morning?  Who cares?  A little Drake whining about his leftover Chinese food followed up with some Miley Cyrus soft porn will alleviate any confusion.  Just stick out your tongue, grab a leotard, and start twerking- you’ve got 2013 music covered.  It’s like Now That’s What I Call Music: 9 Billion.  Listen to this playlist til 2014, then let’s bury these songs like a time capsule not to be revisited until another decade has passed.

Werk, bitch.

Why Did You Wear That: Trapped in the Closet, or At Least I Wish I Was…

american-music-awards-red-carpetMayra Veronica, Marc Anthony, Keltie McKnight, R. Kelly

Award shows always manage to leave me scratching my head and trying to figure out just how much wine I ingested in the last two hours.  It’s as if celebrities save up all their crazy for these star studded events and then unleash it on their adoring fans.  Fortunately for us, it’s all caught on film to be watched time and again for days to follow.  These evenings provide news sources plenty of ammunition and the platform to play things out and beat a dead horse.

Speaking of which… The only thing weirder than Lady Gaga’s arrival on a wind up horse, was her awkward performance with president R. Kelly who probably should have stayed trapped in the closet.  I didn’t have too long to wonder what the real purpose of this horse was or whether Ke$ha and Gaga are actually morphing into the same person, because moments later I thought I spotted a red carpet crasher, but it was just Marc Anthony who looked as though he’d been halfway through his Sunday stack at The Griddle when he realized, “Shit, that award show is tonight.”  His former better half, Jennifer Lopez, more than made up for his failworthy flannel with a high energy tribute to Celia Cruz.  It wasn’t all cringeworthy though.  Watching Rihanna accept the Icon Award from her mother even made me tear up and Christina Aguilera’s soft vocals during her performance with A Great Big World had me fall in love with her all over again.  Just when I started to think that maybe this award show was bringing back a little bit of class to the music world, Miley showed up in a cat covered two piece leotard and I had a hard time deciding which cat to look at because the one lip synching behind her kind of stole the show.

But alas, what we (at least I) bother watching award shows for… the fashion.  If you weren’t wearing white, you were wearing black- or a combo of the two.  This, of course, makes me happy because my second favorite “color” behind black is white.  If you weren’t wearing one of my two favorite shades, you were wearing metallics or heating things up in fiery reds and oranges.  To be clear, just because I post it below doesn’t mean I like it.  It just means it happened and I firmly believe in being informed.  Rihanna, Nicole Richie, Ciara, and a very Kardashian-esque Naya Rivera were a few of my favorites, while most of the others left plenty of room for improvement.
