Amber Riley hilariously laments her #RedCarpetRegrets


(LOS ANGELES) — With the Grammy Awards taking place over the weekend, Glee alum Amber Riley walked down memory lane and revisited her time walking the red carpet.

Unfortunately, for her, she found a lot of looks she wasn’t all too proud of.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Riley shared a video that showcased her biggest award show outfit fails.

“Judge your mother,” the 35-year-old singer lamented before showing off a montage of her so-called “#RedCarpetFails.”

Some of her biggest outfit regrets are her long black pants, chunky belt and gray slinky skirt combo she wore in 2009 for the American Idol final 13 party, the frilly blue tube top and black skinny vest with rolled up jeans outfit she wore to the 2009 Glee premiere screening, the all-black number complete with a black headband with a black bow to the 2009 Art4Life 3 foundation in 2009 and several others.

Riley cranked up the hilarity by soundtracking her slideshow to Gia Giudice’s extremely awkward “Sad Song,” of which the youngster sang in season three of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Before silently introducing each red carpet fail, the Grammy nominee would hilariously cringe or pretend to weep before showing off another fashion regret.

Her open dismay for her past self’s previous wardrobe disasters struck a chord with her famous friends, such as fellow Glee alum Jenna Ushkowitz remarking, “Bahahhahahhha I can relate.”

Riley deadpanned in response, “Girl!  We had no choice hahaha we styled ourselves.”

Kristin Chenoweth — who also appeared on Glee — laughed it up in the comment section as well, writing “Um. I’m peeing my pants. I can relate.”

However, the sweetest response came from Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo, who encouraged, “We all been there.  The growth is real.”
