Last night at the VH1 Divas event, stars rocked sparkles, sequins, eye-catching shoes and, in one case, a train worthy of Amtrak.
With a name like "VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul" — and guests like Jennifer Hudson, Dolly Parton and Mary J. Blige — you expect some over-the-top glamour and a healthy dose of glitter. But you also get giant dyed fur coats, a smattering of sequins and, yes, fingerless gloves.
I always thought a "diva" was a survivor with a colorful string of lovers and struggles. And some of the VH1 Divas at the Brooklyn Academy of Music - Liza, Jennifer, Toni - definitely qualify. Miley Cyrus? Not so much.
