Petite Ladies Ripped the Red Carpet at the BET Awards 2013

The BET awards re-aired over the July 4th weekend. It gave me an opportunity to see and capture moments I missed the first time. For instance, I didn’t realize how the petite ladies represented so well on the red carpet.  Two of the powerhouses, Nicki Minaj and Janelle Monae, are in my height category. Nicki is allegedly 4’11” and Janelle Monae is allegedly 5’0″. Both looked great, in my opinion. I’m 4’11” and a 1/2, yes give me my 1/2 inch… Wooo hooo… it’s the small things people.. PUN intended. Any-who, My favorite look for my body type is Adrienne Bailon’s red dress or Regina’s Halls black cut out dress. Check out the pictures. Feel free to comment on your favorite look.

Petite Celeb Spotlight::Kristin Chenoweth

This week I’m shining the spotlight on Kristin Chenoweth. She  is 4′ 11″ but don’t let her height fool you, she can hold her own in a room full of 6 footers with that personality of hers. She was recently on Extreme Home Makeover and I enjoyed her energy on the show.

Kristin has a love for the play Wicked, she starred in it early in her career ( I’m planning to see it in 2011, yaay 🙂 ) , She loves Chick-fil-a  and her style is sophisticated and chic. She is a true friend in my head. 🙂

Kristin will be performing on New Year’s Eve at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.

~Enjoy Your Journeys, Kristi

Former “Soul Food”  star, Melinda Williams, 5′ 2″,  looked super at the 5th Annual Black Girls Rock! Awards  in New York City which aired on BET, Sunday November 7, 2010. I’m loving her little black dress and hidden platforms. Simple look but she is wearing it!!  Radiant smile always adds to any outfit!

By the way, I’m ready for the Petite Girls Rock Awards!! 🙂

Enjoy Your Journeys, ~ Kristi
