Get the Look: Raven Symone's Tutu/Underwear/Eye Mask Ensemble

By Rachael Gibson

Raven Symone, star of 'That's So Raven' and a bunch of other shows I've never heard of, took to the stage last week wearing what can only be described as one of the most spectacular outfits I've seen this year. As far as stage costumes go, this is up there with Slipknot's gas masks and Madonna's conical bra. Memorable.

Speaking of the birthday girl, Raven seems to have taken a cue from Madge with this outfit - ye olde underwear as outerwear trick. Always a winner. The corset is, in fact, the best part of this outfit. It fits well, it shows off her cute figure and hot diggety dang it's sexy.

For a similar look, get yourself a well-designed, well-fitting, smokin' hot basque and then, just for a hoot, make it look completely ridiculous by layering it over a strange off-the-shoulder white t-shirt and, of course, a leotard. Well, why wouldn't you? Everyone knows layering is cool. The more tops the better. 3, Raven? That the best you can do? I'm wearing 7 as I type this, and it's not even cold today. I'm not for a minute suggesting Raven should go all Pussycat Dolls on our asses and parade around in her bra and knickers, but there has to be a happy medium here, right? Either or, Raven, either or.

I'm not sure if the tulle creation is part of the corset or if it's a separate entity, but what they hey, let's throw in a sparkly black tutu. It's like Jordan on Halloween.

As for the boots -- Raven, I feel you. I'm similarly stumpy of leg, and believe me, sister there is nothing I'd like more than to stomp around in this season's biker boots. They're hot! The perfect finishing touch to your outfit. But let's be honest, they just don't work on us. It hurts me as much as it hurts you. Kudos on the black opaques though -- my personal leg-wear du choix.

The finishing touch is a sleep mask. Obv. Maybe slip it on for a minute, and pretend it's all been a bad dream. If you can't see them, they can't see you, right?

"The more tops the better. 3, Raven? That the best you can do? I'm wearing 7 as I type this, and it's not even cold today." I cannot stop laughing at this!

I have to say, as someone who has been forced to watch That's So Raven on multiple occasions by her baby sisters, I am rarely EVER of fan of what young Ms. Symone is wearing, but I do have mad respect what she must do for the self-image of young big girls everywhere. Surrounded by all those skinny little Disney Channel tartlets girl WORKS her bigness, she makes it FABULOUS. She seems like she is totally comfortable with herself and her size and she OWNS it. So, for the most part, I feel I can be more forgiving with Raven when she does her thing and it comes out on the good side of wrong, which, let's face it, is kind of a lot.

The raven at the bottom saying "That's so not me." kills me.

Raven is bad-ass and I love that she doesn't look anything like V-Hudg or Tilsdale and co! I have only really learnt about her today, but she seems like a whole heap more fun than the rest of the Disney gang.


PS I totes need to check out her music, I bet it's funtimes. I had no idea she was involved with the Cheetah Girls. I'm so out of the loop.

The Cheetah Girls are the Shiz! Cheetah Girls 2 deserves to win Oscars.

Raven is also the gal who played Olivia on "The Cosby Show". And if it weren't for having two girls, that's the only fact I'd know about her. I've gotten a crash course in Ravenosity the past few years. Yippee and all that.
