One of the most important aspects of Christina Aguilera’s career has always been connected to charity and humanitarian projects. Coming from a difficult childhood, she knows the importance of giving support and hope to those in need. She’s supported many different charities, especially those who help victims of domestic violence; among these, the United Nations World Food Programme and the World Hunger Relief. Yesterday all her efforts were recognized at the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards (held at Louisville, Kentucky), where she received the Humanitarian of the Year Award.
She looked absolutely stunning, wearing a short-sleeved black dress and sporting an elegant sleek bob. I’m glad she’s apparently entered another black dress phase: black gives her a ladylike and dramatic vibe, which I love.
She opted for a Torn by Ronny Kobo creation: her Lourdes dress is a stretch knit body-con piece with sheer mesh insets on the bodice, waistline, sleeves and hem. She paired it to a pair of platform peep-toe pumps by Christian Louboutin (probably the same she wore at the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last month).
She kept everything simple: her pin-straight platinum blonde locks, her make-up and the jewellery department. For the occasion she wore a diamond ring, an oval-shaped ring with central stone and a diamond line cuff by Karma El Khalil. The whole outfit is perfectly event-appropriate and well-balanced. I really hope she sticks to this style because it beautifully enhances her figure.
After receiving the award, she gave a heart-felt speech and got really emotional. Take some time to watch it because it’s really worth it: it gives you a better idea of who Christina is and of how important helping others is for her. I must admit I got emotional myself.
