Weekend Hot! or Hmm…: Black Girls Rock! 2011, Plus Pharrell, Ciara, Kelly Rowland, and more!

Happy Monday Bombshells!
Hope you had fabulous weekends (I know I did!).

Let’s see what a few of our favorite celebs were up to, shall we?

The Black Girls Rock! Awards ceremony went down at the Paradise Theater in New York and welcomed stars like Taraji P. Henson, Angela Davis, and Erykah Badu. I love an animal print, so am totally feeling Taraji’s hot long sleeved snake patterned number! For Angela, an LBD is always chic, and I appreciate Erykah Badu’s eclectic gold boots and jacket. Hot!

Jill Scott was also in the building in all black everything. All black can be boring, but Jilly mixed it up with varying textures and pops of brushed metal accents with her long earrings and stacked bangles. Hot!

Model Alek Wek was also in attendance. Beautiful face, though I think a gown in a gorgeous bright color would have been more appropriate to show off her model body and flawless features. Hmm…

Estelle had the right idea in this flowing red satin gown by Ghanaian designer Mimi Plange. The color and dramatic neckline were the perfect combination for the awards ceremony. Hot!

Melanie Fiona posed with BET’s Debra Lee in a multicolored peplum Proenza Schouler frock and Sergio Rossi peep toes. I like how Ms. Fiona isn’t afraid to play with color. Hot!

Mary Mary looked classic and elegant in black sequins and a one shoulder red dress. Their looks say, “I’m grown and sexy.” Hot!

Fellow blogger Necole Bitchie was in attendance in a lace A-line dress with a sweetheart neckline and a matching bolero. Necole always knows how to look youthful, fresh, and fun. Hot!

Po Johnson and Lala Vazquez posed for the paps, with Po in patterned pants and Lala in a white crochet gown and her favorite Nicholas Kirkwood lace ups. With Po, I would have removed the scarf and replaced it with a bib necklace, but Lala is hot! Love her bright lip color and the high slit on her dress. Work!
Over in Las Vegas….

Pharrell made an appearance at the Sugar Factory American Brasserie in a military inspired olive green jacket, white tee, and jeans. The outfit is cute enough, but check out those accessories! The Nerd belt is dope and I kinda like his Chanel shoes. They’re quirky, but fit his unique steeze.

Ciara wore one of her (and my) favorite designers, Helmut Lang, while running errands in LA. Loving how the high slit on the skirt reveals a peek of her Gianvitto Rossi x Altuzarra shoes (I’m a fan of those as well). Her outfit is super casual, but perfect for a relaxed day in sunny Cali. Cute!

Nicole Richie was also out and about in Beverly Hills, rocking her favorite Céline Spring 2011 bag with skinny black jeans and a coffee colored top. This is a classic example of when the accessories make the look. Her House of Harlow Nelly Lace up platform pumps are hot! Might have to get a pair.

Finally, over in the UK, Kelly Rowland flashed a pop of a black bra under a revealing slit front pink dress after taping the X Factor. Hmm…this looks screams for attention. And not in a good way. Ladies, you don’t have to show it all to be sexy. Better luck next time, Kells….
And that does it!
Who worked it the best this weekend?
