I’ll try not to give to much away.
Last Night, Gabriel our Sister Celebrity Stylist Becca Alexis and I took our Talents to the Bronx for the 5th Annual Black Girls Rock Awards. And you know how I feel about the Bronx *side-eye* but The Loew’s Paradise Theatre was beautiful.
This marked the organizations first collaboration with BET and it proved to be a match made in heaven. Hosted by Nia Long the Night included performances by Jill Scott, Shontelle and Ledisi among others and just wouldn’t stop with the surprises. Honoree’s included Missy Elliot, Raven Simone, KeKe Palmer and Ruby Dee among others, and served as an excellent reminder of the beautiful women in out mist who are accomplishing the possible and impossible due to their beliefs in themseleves and others.
These Black Girls Rock!
Pics and more after the jump…
We were in excellent company as we were seated amongst hundreds of Industry Tastemakers and insiders, as well as droves of ‘girlfriends’ out to enjoy the Event. ATL was definietly in the building with appearances from Keri Hilson, Monica, Keyshia Cole, Ciara and black Girl Rocks Honaree Missy Elliot. Other Notables included Estelle, Free, Malinda Williams, Bevy Smith, June Ambrose, VV Brown, Necole Bitchie, and Marsha Ambrosius just to name a few, It was literally one Surprise after the other.
Peep The Gallery after the jump and tune in to BET on November 7th for the airing of the Show. I’ve purposely left out the good stuff to assure that you tune in!
It’ll be worth it! 🙂
