This morning I woke up at 5.53 but I was kind of happy because I couldn’t wait to see pics from yesterday’s episode of The Voice. Alessia, a friend who lives in the U.S., wrote me a tweet saying I was going to love Christina’s look and she was damn right!
If you are regular readers of this blog, you know I have sometimes been quite critical with Christina: she’s my favourite singer but I like being as objective as possible when it comes to fashion and her style. No one can deny her outfits were totally inconsistent and somehow trashy in Season 3 (they were funny, too, so my criticism has a silver lining), but this Season 5 is a completely different story. She started it with a bang (the show-stopper by Michael Cinco) and yesterday looked ravishing in Versace. The Italian fashion house and Christina are a match made in heaven, so I was super-excited to see the crystal-studded Medusa heads on her straps. Besides the dress, the whole look is gorgeous – her wavy hair, the flawless make-up, the classy red mani.
The dress she wore is a simple fitted stretch cocktail dress in cream. The raised rippled texture, the sweetheart neckline, the straps crossing on the back and the rose-gold logo metallions with crystals turn it into a special piece, which Christina wore with grace. A curiosity: the floral cream fan she held in her hands is the same she had in the Season 3 Top 8 live performances.
Yesterday’s episode was exciting for another reason, too. Christina performed live with Flo Rida on the notes of How I Feel. I really appreciated the peculiar Great Gatsby vibe of the performance: Christina arrived on stage on a red armchair situated in a golden ring. She sported a sexy outfit, so in tune with the performance.
She completed the performance wearing bra and panties only and looked super-glamourous! A stunning Saint Laurent Swarovski crystal-embellished catsuit (from the fall 2013 collection) added an extra-dose of sparkle.
Her outfits in this episode have literally blown me away, but there’s more to come: tonight Christina is performing live again, because she will sing Say Something with the duo A Great Big World. The song is a really special ballad and I’m sure Christina will bring the best out of it!
