Andre Leon Talley, Anna Wintour, Celebrity Style, Hot or Hmm, On the Scene
On the Scene: The New York Premiere of The Butler
By Claire

Lee Daniels’s The Butler Premiere was apparently the place to be last night in New York, as several celebs hit the red carpet at Ziegfeld Theater to show support for the filmmaker’s latest flick.
On The Scene- The New York Premiere Of The Butler-2
From Lady O to Mariah Carey, the occasion was nothing less than star studded. Take a look at who showed up and who wore what:

Tika Sumpter was the lady in red in a knee length Alberta Ferretti dress and white Christian Louboutin pumps. Not the most flattering frock we’ve seen on the starlet and the shoes are a miss, though her makeup is consistently flawless.

Mimi always keeps it cute, even with a dislocated shoulder! The crooner hit the carpet with her husband Nick Cannon in a studded arm sling, LBD, and Valentino Lace Bow D’orsay Pumps.

A black dress was also the call for Keisha Whitaker, who posed with hubby Forrest in a Badgley Mischka creation. So elegant, no?

Oprah brought long time companion Stedman Graham as her date, and blessed the children with voluminous curls, a sparkling custom salmon crunchy sequin Theia dress, and a matching Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Satin/Snakeskin Knot Clutch. I’m here for every little bit of this. She looks great!

It was a night for couples! Yaya Alafia and Joshua Bee Alafia were in the building, with Yaya showing off her burgeoning baby bump in a strapless lace dress.

Fantasia Barrino flashed her abdomen in a crop top, Zara gold pencil skirt, and Jimmy Choo Anouk Animal Print Metallic pumps. Hmmm…what do you think?

Original fashion queens Anna Wintour and Andre Leon Talley were in attendance, with Andre in his signature caftan and Anna in one of her standby shifts. They know what they like, and stick to it!

Hottie James Marsden was also in the house, and posed for the paps in a slightly unbuttoned checked shirt and expertly tailored two piece.

Lenny Kravitz escorted Cicely Tyson to the fun occasion. Cicely looked regal in a floral print wrap dress and Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps, while Lenny embodied rocker chic in a re-imagined tux and spiked boots. Yes!
And lastly, the man of the hour, Lee Daniels, kept his look casual, sidling up to a simple black blazer, black button down, and jeans.
And there you have it!
Who do you think was best dressed?

    Keisha Whitaker looks like a teenager..i googled her age and she’s 41 omg

  2. S says:

    For the ladies I loved Keisha Whitaker, Oprah, Yaya and Georgina. For the men I loved Jesse Williams and James Marsden and I thought Forest looked nice coordinated with his wife. What I didn’t like….Fantasia’s look (top to bottom), Terrence Howard and Lee Daniels. Lee you could’ve spruced up just a tad. Andre Leon Talley….no words!

  3. S says:

    Like column…Keisha, Oprah, YaYa, Georgina, Jesse, James. Did not like column…Fantasia, Terrence, Andre Talley. Sometimes my comments don’t post, not sure why.

  5. Grly says:

    Why are Oprah’s legs sooooo light? Is she bleaching?

  6. Gail says:

    Wish I could rock a leather pant as well as Lenny Kravitz does. Damn. Oprah is looking voluptious from her hair to her curves… bam, bam bam! Love it. Tika is pretty but bad choices here. Her makeup looks flawless though.

  7. Imani says:

    No Tika no! That dress is not flattering AT ALL. Her face is beat and that’s her only saving grace.

    Mika looks amazing and so does Keisha Whitaker.

    Georgina Chapman is GOREGOUS! Post more about her lol

  8. Anonymous says:

    Fantasia A NOOO NOOO. Everyone is aware of your weight loss but it was not a crop top type of event, Sorry.

  9. Imani says:

    And I had to post again to give big shame on you to Fantasia. Need I say more? She’s been doing much better style wise but this takes her back a few steps

  10. S says:

    I’ll try this again. Fantasia this outfit is all wrong. As far as Oprah’s legs, maybe she just keeps them covered most of the time, therefore they don’t get much sun. Some people get tan lines or some people are just more pale on certain parts of the body. It happens.

  11. sweetie says:

    This ghetto bird, fantasia smh, everyone looked nice and classy

  12. Cliche says:

    Head Madam in Charge Cicely Tyson threw on her fanciest wig and dared us all to get mad. She better do it!

  13. The Bayarean says:

    Hate to say it, but Lenny stole the show from all the ladies. Those studded boots? Werk!

  14. Anonymous says:

    yaya looks gorgeous. congrats to her.

  15. Crystal says:

    They photoshop Miss Winfrey within an inch of her life on her magazine cover huh? In other news…Lenny Kravitz!

  16. Anonymous says:

    My favs were Oprah and Jesse William.

    Fantasia looks a hot mess !!

  17. Tika’s outfit is a mess. Loves YaYa’s dress, but her make up and hair could have been better. Oprah looks good, but it could have been better. I like Fantasia’s look, but not for the occasion. I can’t with Lenny and those BIG ASS shoes!

  18. ilike2smize says:

    I absolutely adore Tika and I think she is definitely one of the most gorgeous girls on TV, but whomever is doing her makeup, hair and overall styling needs to be beat down for taking such a gorgeous girl and doing her plain old wrong. This hair is ok – anything is better than those old lady buns she usually rocks. And the face beat gives me 80s drag. It does not compliment her strong features and it overall looks very old fashioned and beauty pageant….and it never matches her complexion. It is soooo NOT modern for a young girl. The dress and shoes should be burned. Too much wasted potential for my taste.

    Fantasia and those nasty leg tats…ew

  20. Blue Ivy Carter says:

    I went straight to Jesse Williams!!

  21. Michael says:

    Mariah looks amazing! Love the shoes and the make up and hair are flawless!!

  22. Sandra says:

    Fantasia,Fantasia, you really could not put yourself together. That is a BIG hmmm for me. Mariah, fail. Why is Lenny so skinny? Let me stop here. Tika looked nice even though she could have worn something better. On the other hand, I love her make up. I am so loving this girl now.

  23. Jihan says:

    here for James Marsden

    Dear Keisha Whitaker,
    Are you currently looking for any understudies? I want to be as flawlessly fabulous as you are at your age.

  25. LawyerLady says:

    Tika is starting to go the way of J. Hud, Serena and others who regularly disappoint. It’s a pity too because the woman is naturally gorgeous! Fantasia is inappropriate for this event. She knew Oprah was going to be there! smh Yaya is simply radiant.

  26. Kristi K says:

    Alright Mother Cicely… That is all I got.

  27. AzizMom says:

    I’m here for Oprah and Mariah (surprisingly). Fanny, the tatoos are hideous. Tika – what went wrong? Lee Daniels, you are now in the big leagues so step it up. Lastly, Keisha Whitaker…I am praying her eating disorder is healed. She needs a sandwich, cheese fries, pasta and soda pop ASAP.

  28. rw says:

    oh tasia…..

  29. Jei says:

    Yaya looks stunning. Jesse Williams && Lenny Kravitz stole the show for me though.

  30. Yaya and fanstisa b tika have on an Amazing Outfit, everybodys else Looks Nice,Wonderful

  31. PEACE says:

    FANTASIA looks a hot gaudy disturbing appalling deplorable mess from burning HELL! And those tats yuckkkkkkk!

  32. Kahalia says:

    Jesse Williams looks perfect, perfect, perfect.

  33. Cali says:

    OPRAH looks amaze!

    Oh, what a night! Shocking levels of bad taste! ALL outfits were below standard – either ill-conceived or ill-fitting. Jesse Williams’ trousers were too short; Terrence Howard’s brocade suit an eyesore; James Marsden’s shoes too big; and Tika Sumpter’s frock and Louboutins poorly co-ordinated and too 90s – even her makeup was ageing and old-fashioned. And as for Mr Vogue himself – Andre Leon Talley … aaaarrrgggh! I’ve seen better dressed windows! My favourites were Yaya’s purple number; Keisha Whittaker’s black cocktail dress (though sadly she lacked the curves to do it justice) and Lenny Kravitz’s unique take on red-carpet chic (fab sparkly boots). All in all, however, a dismal night for fashion

  35. Aika says:

    OMAAGGOOODDDDD OPRAH HAS KILLED IT!!! BEST DRESSED! BEST DRESSED. I LIKE EVERYTHING!!! You dont even notice how her hair looks when she has on that dresss. She’s definitely blown me away.

  36. Diva says:

    ok Oprah looks so good, and so does Ms. Cicely—- BLACK DON’T CRACK !!!!!
    I gotta say it no matter the consequences—Anna & Leon look very foolish, lightning should strike me in 5, 4, 3, 2….

  37. Anonymous says:

    My goodness… why are James Marsden’s shoes so BIG? And LMAO @ LawyerLady’s “She knew Oprah was going to be there!”

  39. Nerline says:

    I don’t know if it’s the hair or the dress, but something is making Oprah look big. Or maybe it is Stedman being too tall.

  40. Westafricanmutt says:

    Can Fantasia be banned? Like we don’t ever have to see her? Tika needs a real stylist. She’s too beautiful to be messing up like that.
    Yaya, Minka, and Mrs Whitaker are just STUNNING beauties

  41. Jenn says:

    Am I the only one thats noticing James Marsden shoes fits him big? Loving Oprah!

  42. NYC chick says:

    Some hits but lots of misses here.

    Hits- Yaya, Anna, and Jessie “too fine” Williams from the waist up. Misses include Oprah (she looks stuffed in that dress), tacky Terrance, Gail (too casual), Lenny (men in heels just ain’t right), Leon (looks sooo huge), and Fantasia (lawd, just looks like a hood rat).
