Why is it that I keep seeing celebrities in honest-to-goodness figure skating dresses/outfits? Previously I did a doubletake because in addition to the cute dress, I really thought Sarah Jessica Parker also had on skates. (I was wrong.) The next skater I see is the gorgeous R&B singer/songwriter Ashanti at the 2008 BET Awards which were held on Tuesday, in Los Angeles, California. I was waiting for her to do a layback spin. My friend Aaron at Axels, Loops and Spins thought Bebe Liang wore the same dress for her short program a few years back.
I got this photo from the folks at gofugyourself, who covered other fashion hits and misses at the BET Awards so please check out their site. I'm just waiting for the red carpet moment when someone shows up complete with a fleece warmup jacket and pants (you know, the breakaway ones that zip at the sides and you can wear your dress under it), then takes off her jacket, unzips her pants, and voilà! The dress.
