All week long, we have been reliving the golden era of hip-hop; specifically, the late ’80s and early ’90s years that Yo! MTV Raps ruled the airwaves. If the nostalgia or the awesomely bad style moments hasn’t convinced you to tune in to tonight’s The 40 Greatest Yo! MTV Rap Moments, perhaps the then and now style evolution of some of your favorite celebrities will. In the most visible transformation, Ice-T traded in his pimp wardrobe for more refined wares. And Salt-N-Pepa retired the spandex (which we kind of loved) in favor of chic dresses.
The Kentucky Derby rolled around this weekend and you know what that means…b and c-level celebrities in big hats! While ladies like Jordin Sparks, Paula Patton and Maria Menounos kept things fun, we have to call out three ladies for not quite hitting the right vibe. Miranda Lambert‘s visit doubled as a bachelorette party, so we kind of want to give her green cowboy boots a pass, but Aubrey O’Day has no excuse for traipsing around in “slutty french maid” lingerie (except for the fact that she’s Aubrey O’Day). Meanwhile, Kate Gosselin…ugh. Who hit the most heinous hat note?

With southern ladies like Dixie Carter sadly passing away, it’s good to see a new generation of stars picking up where gals like her left off on the red carpet of the Kentucky Derby. Wouldn’t it make her proud to know such horse racing fans as Ashlee & Pete, Salt’n'Pepa and whimsical Joey “The Fat One” Fatone have stepped forward to claim her baton. “Don’t worry, Dixie,” they seem to say. “The ghosts of TRL will take it from here.” See more big bonnets and unexpected celebrities (Johnny Weir!) in the gallery below.
Girls, girls, girls. Pop divas can be bad enough alone, but put into packs, the real drama is unleashed. The upcoming release of the Pussycat Dolls brand new album got us thinking about some of the more scandal-ridden girl groups. From meth addiction to a home-made porno, check out our list of the girl groups with the most inter-band strife.
