Was Toni Braxton having the perfect night at the 2017 Soul Train Awards or what?
She was given the prestigious Don Cornelius Legend Award in honor of illustrious recording career, and was accompanied by not one — but two — handsome dates in the form of her now-grown sons, Diezel, 14, and Denim, 15.

To top it all off, the multi-talented entertainer was looking mighty fine in a dazzling silver-beaded naked-effect gown, accessorized with none other than the massive $5 million diamond engagement ring from her beau, Birdman.

Looking over Toni from head-to-toe was perfect… until we got down to her shoes.
For some strange styling reason, the 50-year-old singer decided to pair her sheer naked dress with bulky nude Mary Jane platform pumps. The heavy-looking shoes clashed with her delicate dress and weighed her entire elegant look down.

We wish Toni had gone with ankle-strap sandals or even just peep-toe pumps to lessen the bulk.
