What’s hot and what’s not?

23 November 2018
Each week, the Windhoek Observer’s entertainment crew takes an insightful, yet amusing look at the performance and arts industry, lifestyle and fashion happenings in Windhoek and across the world, and judges whether they are hot or not.
Ah, we love rainbows
We love the rainbow because it’s so colourful. The colours in this sequined mini dress have the power to lighten up anyone and anything. We love this sexy dress even more because of its waves of multi-coloured, shimmering bling. Those ruby red, spike heeled, strappy sandals are totally badass! We also want a pair.  You define what it means to pick a dress that catches the eye, fits your curves, and makes you feel beautiful.  Well done!
Our heart melts for this see-through sequin dress
This week, we decided to look around the internet for some fashions that caught our eye.  Check out the former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo as she wears a jaw-dropping see-through black sequin dress during the 2018 CMA Awards that were held recently in the USA.  OK…it is a bit ‘naked’ and ‘bedroom’, but we like it on the red carpet.  See-through dresses over well-endowed, fit bodies are very trendy at this moment and we would recommend it to anyone who can rock this just like she did.
Granny look outfit is dowdy
Still keeping our fashion eye abroad, we found this photo of actress Alyssa Milano trying to wear an off-the-shoulder top and pencil skirt with silver details at the recently held Annual Bill of Rights Dinner in Beverly Hills.  Namibian ladies:  take note on how NOT to dress when on the red carpet.  We feel this outfit is too long and frumpy – she should have let the skirt come just under her knees.  Her off-shoulder look is droopy on her rounded shoulders and the silver details at the waist look like a boxer’s championship belt.  Even the big Hollywood stars with stylists and free clothes from designers make fashion mistakes as bad as this one.
