Mary J. Blige Marries Street Style With Red Carpet Glamour in Two-Piece Tony Ward Gown at BET Awards 2022

Mary J. Blige is a fashion chameleon, switching from street style to red carpet glamour, embracing plenty of style iterations in between along the way. For the 2022 BET Awards, the 51-year-old singer-actress donned a pristine-white two-piece outfit, creating a look that embodied the best elements of her signature style.

To attend the award show celebrating Black excellence and Black culture, Blige — who was styled by Jason Rembert — wore a look by Tony Ward. The design’s cropped off-the-shoulder top featured an asymmetric sleeve design with a singular long sleeve on one arm and a beaded strap on the other shoulder. The silhouette also wrapped around Blige’s neck, giving a choker-like effect. The hip-hop icon paired the top with a ruched high-waisted white skirt, which featured a slightly off-center thigh-high slit and a floor-sweeping train.

Known for our effortless approach to fashion, the crowds at AAFW always unearth a heap of style inspo to mine from, and if day one is indicative of how the rest of the week will play out, they’re not here to disappoint.

Last year we saw show-goers lean heavily towards neutrals, fluid shapes and relaxed suiting, but this year has seen a drastic shift

Photographing Everyday Street Style – Documenting Street Fashion

style points

Style Points is a weekly column about how fashion intersects with the wider world.

Sometime in the late spring of 2020, Johnny Cirillo started noticing everything had become see-through.

He hadn’t suddenly developed X-ray vision–but his street photography subjects had overwhelmingly begun opting for sheer looks, even as they covered their faces with masks. The thought process, he rationalizes, was, “I always wanted to do this, but I’m a little bit nervous. Now there’s a little bit of hidden identity here, I think I can get away with it.”

Cirillo is one of a new cohort of Instagram-famous street-style photographers who combine traditional fashion photography with the street documentary traditions of people like Garry Winogrand and Vivian Maier, serving up slices of everyday life. Imagine a mashup of Humans of New York and The Sartorialist, and you’ll be close. Though they do shoot traditional street style of the fashion-week variety,
