And Best dressed at the Billboard awards goes toooo...

Ed Sheeran at the Billboard Music AwardsEveryone wants to look their best for an awards show right? It's a parade of one-upper's to see who wore what best. Amongst guys a nice suit is always a mainstay, but when it comes to the upper echelons with women, it seems like a competition or endorsement for the latest designer (sans lady gaga - she does what she does for who knows what reasons...) and that's why...

Ed Sheeran is a boss! Not only does he not give into the high fashion trend, he's an upcomer who's been showing the world it's not all about looks. (Trust me I'm a radio DJ, if I was handsome - I'd be in TV/Movies.) But what works for him, really is only because he's bucking the norm, while everyone is all gala'ed out in their finest. Ed can make more of an impact and statement by simply rolling in a shirt and jeans, word of advice - always be an outlier, own it! How do you think Thrift Shop became so popular? Though I'm sure Mackelmore appreciates the velcros - We need everyday role-models. No, Ed isn't spending thousands of dollars on a one night award show and he's not rocking a chiselled physique. He is who he is, like it or not. Maybe the fame hasn't gotten to him yet, but, I bet - if he performed on stage, he'd just rock a vest along with the clothes he has on. That's why Ed is my favorite "ginger" and that's not in a derogative sense, that's straight real - Raines
