When Mary J. Blige wants to celebrate female power, she pulls out the hot pink leather corset and denim pumps. Simply put, she is an icon of her own design.
The 51-year-old star was spotted in Atlanta on Friday for the Strength of a Woman festival and summit wearing her best badass. The women-focused festival is a multi-day event that Blige created in conjunction with Pepsi to celebrate powerful women in comedy, music and activism.
For the first day of the event, Blige wore an Alexander McQueen hot pink leather corset with a silver front zipper and biker jacket detailing. The hip-hop icon paired the fashionable top with a pair of faded skinny skinny jeans, accessorized with a hot pink Dolce and Gabanna leather belt with an embellished D&G belt buckle. Blige teamed the look with a pair of denim stiletto ankle boots from Dolce and Gabanna.
Blige accessorized with several silver layered necklaces, one of which had a large “Mary” pendant. The star also wore a pair of large, drop-paved silver hoop earrings. Donning a smoky look, Blige wore her long blonde hair in her signature waist-length waves.
Blige seems to have an affinity for blue-heeled boots lately. She wore a pair of shimmering light blue stiletto boots to her album premiere party on February 11, then a pair of dark blue stiletto boots to promote the same album less than a month later on February 4. april. Recently, Blige wore a pair of Dolce & Gabanna denim thigh-high boots to watch the Brooklyn Nets play against the Boston Celtics on April 24.
The Strength of a Woman Festival and Summit is a three-day comedy, music, and community-building event taking place May 6-8 in Atlanta, organized for women by women. During the event, Atlanta presented Blige with its very own “A Woman’s Strength Day,” which recognizes May 5 as a holiday in the city.
