Jody Watley Proves She Still Has IT. CentricTV Howard Theatre Concert Review

The name Jody Watley has been an integral part of music for over three decades, and it seems the Grammy award winning R&B/Dance music diva isn’t slowing down any time soon…Click HERE to read full review. 

Of the variety of wardrobe changes and modifications I wore in Washington D.C.'s concert was a custom made kimono styled black sequined paillette belted jacket/top (my design) made by Gloria Garcia-Crouch funked up with black skinny jeans and studded black pumps.

For my 80's portion of pop hits, I quickly changed into a zippered biker jacket and my signature jumbo hoop earrings to the delight of the crowd who cheered loudly as I stood there and put them on saying "I need these" - with white and black spiked studded pumps. My guys accented me with spiked studded caps, bow ties, skinny jeans, white collared shirts and blazers. The outfit was later modified as I musically traveled into a deep cut from my underground electronica foray from 1999 by adding sunglasses, a custom "Classic Valentino" hat by Gladys Tamez Millenary, and another signature that I've performed with since my Soul Train dancer days - a handheld fan for that right touch of nightlife chic attitude.

The crowd went banana's when I did another change and brought out 'the classic jacket' from my "Some Kind of Lover" and "Everything" video's. The vintage leather biker jacket with my image hand painted on the back, custom spiked, studded and rhinestoned sleeves a weighs over 100 lbs.

The concert wouldn't be complete without some Jean Paul-Gaultier; form fitted jacket, black t-shirt, black spiked belt to close with some fashion walk fabulousness on "Real Love."
