Nicole Richie & Family Lead The Way At The ASCAP AwardsS

Last night at the Kodak Theater, Lionel Richie was presented with a lifetime achievement award by ASCAP, the organization that collects public-performance royalties for its member songwriters and copyright owners. Lionel looked smashing in his tux, and daughters Nicole and Sophia (pictured) were also in very cute, appropriate dresses. But, as with any music industry event, there was some fug on display. Justin Timberlake, Keri Hilson, Fergie, Melanie Brown, Natasha Bedingfield, Sara Bareilles and more appear in the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, after the jump.





The Good:

Justin Timberlake and his mom ASCAP's Loretta Munoz complement each other and look ready for spring!

Wow, that color makes Keri Hilson glow. She looks fresh, pretty and appropriate. Time to sing that song she did with Timbaland: "I like you just the way you are."

Katy Perry's little strapless dress is adorable!

Nicole Richie probably spent all night pulling this dress up, since it appears to be dangerously close to falling down. But she looks amazing. Brava!

The Bad:

Animal print again, Scary Spice Melanie Brown?!?! Think outside the bun. Look to Keri Hilson for hints. Also, those boots are hideous.

Natasha Bedingfield would like to welcome you to the Love Boat. She's sailing to waters where it is okay to accessorize like a drunk celebrity on Match Game.

Sara Bareilles also needs to look at Keri Hilson and swap those scuffed boots for some pretty sandals. Maybe she's trying to keep it real, but she's got a freakin' radio hit. She can afford some pumps.

The Ugly:

Awful hair, ugly T-shirt, terrible jeans: At least Da Brat is consistent.

Hey, Fergie Ferg, not sure exactly what is going on with the neckline and waistline of your dress, but something is off. I know this is shot at a weird angle that makes your head look big, and that's not your fault, but a dress with wide-set straps would be more flattering to your neck and shoulders.
