The VMAs After Party With CeeLo Green! Plus: Brooklyn Style Tips!By Patty on Site | August 30, 2013 | Entertainment
Where were the DivaGals after the VMAs? In Brooklyn for the Goodie Mob reunion concert! Patty On Site has the deets. Plus how to rock your own version of Brooklyn style!
The big borough buzz was at MTV’s annual Video Music Awards in Brooklyn Sunday night. As I exited public transportation I could feel the energy.
I attended the after party at Brooklyn Bowl, a hip on bowling alley which houses many performers through out the year. This night it was all about superstar showman CeeLo Green, who reunited with Goodie Mob bandmates — Khujo, T-Mo and Big Gipp ΓÇô along with adorable Atlanta native Aasha Rawlings, a.k.a. DJ Adore. Brooklyn Bowl lends to a very intimate surroundings. No need to be V.I.P; I was right in front!
The Voice star charmed the audience as soon as he hit the stage. As I glanced through the crowd their faces were full of delight when the realization hit: “It’s really him!” Goodie Mob was full of energy, and pumped up the place.
Of course, CeeLo is creating his own army of musical geniuses. Joining him on stage was his discovery – V Bozeman, a modern day Grace Jones who pranced on stage as the duo did their rendition of “Don’t Cha Wish Your Girlfriend Was Hot Like Me.” It was the highlight of the night as the song is perfect for their voices and funky style.
CeeLo was nothing short of incredible with a strong stash of charisma cool as he joked with the audience. Hipsters jammed, the sisters and brothers jammed and my favorite ΓÇô “the Nerds” they knew every word to every song.
The dress code of the night was easy cool. Here’s my tips on capturing the looks!
“The Afro-Prep” — For men and women
Basics: White bottom-downs with slim rolled up khakis and loafers, topped off with a porkpot hat.
Key accessories: Bracelets, summer ropes, gleamed up ethic beads or an arm filled of chucked out elements of bold gold, silver and copper.
“The Felicity” — Girls of all shapes and colors
Basics: Summer floral printed dress worn with Keds, Converse or T-strap sandals.
Hair: was tossed in a free flowing style or slicked back and ponied up.
“The Urban Beach Bunch” — Girls, Girls, Girls
Basics: Maxi dresses and jean jackets. Or a T-shirt worn with slim cropped jeans.
Key Accessories: Sneaks, platform wedges or flips. The cross body handbag is key not to inhibit them getting their groove on.
Hair: Total messy beach waves, way out natural locks or a ‘fro.
As for me, I wore a signature NYC black swing top over a black skater skirt trimmed in pink. My hair big bounced out curls of life! I had to get my Brooklyn groove on!
Who said America is having race relations are an issue? Well no one has told Brooklyn! Every single person was moving — even the elderly lady who came there just to bowl.
