Red carpet islandistas – Soul Train, EMAs and Latin Grammys

Islandistas have been spotted on red carpets all over the place in the last week or so – from the Soul Train Awards to the Latin Grammys and the MTV European Music Awards.

Check them out below.

Estelle has been showing up on red carpets galore in recent weeks. We saw her down south in Brazil at the Fashion Rocks event in a Manish Arora dress that thrilled some and turned off others.

We’re sure opinions will be less divided on her look at Sir Richard Branson’s Rock the Kasbah gala in Los Angeles. It’s beautiful and on trend in every way – colour, cut, fabric and shoes. A +!


 She also was in form at the Soul Train Awards earlier this week, in this gold and black number.



 Melanie Fiona also brought some shine to the red carpet – in pewter instead of gold, with this gorgeous one-shouldered dress with a peplum skirt. See even more red carpet looks when you read more.



Guyanese-Canadian songbird Deborah Cox (at right above with Kelly Price and Tamia) wore a somewhat more casual look  – not really feeling it that much. Love the shoes though – they are mad!



At-ti-tude gyal! Leona Lewis went bold on the red carpet for the MTV European Music Awards in an eye-catching pleather and tulle dress by the queen of punk, Vivienne Westwood. This dress is so flashy that it’s definitely an opinion divider – it treads the line between daring and ridiculous. We’re going to come down on the side of daring though – we especially love that it’s ‘good girl’ Leona that’s wearing this risky look.


And Alicia Keys was gorgeous in green, wearing this Kaufman Franco dress at the Latin Grammy awards recently in Las Vegas.

So, whose look did you like best?

island ~ ista
From Latin -ista via Portuguese -ista
one who follows a principle; an adept.

As an islandista I live, embody, exude the spirit of the Caribbean islands.
