Watch VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul Monday, Dec. 19 at 9/8c.
When VH1 Diva performer Jessie J stopped by to chat with our red carpet host La La Anthony about her jaw-dropping outfit, she explained: “I sat with Falguni and Shane Peacock and I explained to them that I need a dress that’s skin tight that makes me feel like a diva.” Mission accomplished, thrice! Her red carpet number, a sheer black dress with gold embroidery and crucifix imagery, was one of the most talked-about outfits of the night, possibly because it made only a feeble attempt to cover her bra and panties — although she sure kept her feet modest with that black curtain.
With pink, orange and purple tassels extending from her arms and midriff, Jessie’s second outfit of the night (designed by British designer Mark Fast) matched the first in eccentricity. With combat boots on her feet, we couldn’t decide whether she was aiming to look like an exotic bird or alluding to Native-American warriors.
Jessie’s third outfit of the night was a skin-tight bodysuit that looked partly like a Jackson Pollock painting and partly like Arctic camouflage.
Watch Jessie J duet with Jennifer Hudson as part of a tribute to Memphis on VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul tonight at 9/8c on VH1.com. The British songstress also sings her new hit “Domino.” See the full Divas set list and watch a sneak peak featuring Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, and Mary J. Blige performing “Keep Me Hanging On.”
