Happy Monday everyone!
October is coming to a close and I can’t wait for Halloween to kick off the holiday season!
This weekend, some of the world’s most beautiful ladies flocked to the Black Girls Rock! 2013 show, while others were spotted onstage in animal prints and out and about in casual ensembles.
Let’s get into this weekend’s looks…
Don’t waste your time trying to find a flaw on Nia Long. She was virtually immaculate in a form-fitting Miguel Antoinne LBD and $925 Saint Laurent Ankle Strap Point Toe Pumps.
Mara Brock Akil reunited with the cast of Girlfriends. Didn’t the ladies look fab? Loving Persia White’s Nanis Italian Jewels and Melie Bianco clutch.
Sevyn Streeter had my favorite look of the night in a curve-hugging Balmain dress. Also of note was her amazing bob. She worked the pink carpet!
Lala Anthony snapped a pic on Instagram of her outfit for the night, including a $3,590 Emilio Pucci Crystal Embellished Wool Blend Jumpsuit. This was darling.
Tatyana Ali showed off the open back of her gorgeous Michael Costello gown.
It was all about high-fashion for Skylar Diggins in a $9,000 Gucci Black Net and Tulle Embroidered Gown. Pretty!
Jennifer Hudson debuted her new pixie haircut in a Balmain Long Sleeve V-Neck Dress. Not feeling the shoe choice here, but her new ‘do is great!
Amber Riley flaunted her curves in a $109 Rachel Roy Printed Mini Dress and sandals from the brand. Hot!
Backstage Selita Ebanks stuck to neutral tones in an embellished Kaufman Franco one-shoulder dress. So elegant.
Mariah Carey and Queen Mother of Song Patti Labelle posed together in all their radiance. I wasn’t a fan of Mariah’s crop top, but her Alexander McQueen maxi skirt was pretty exquisite!
Keke Palmer looked every bit the princess in a Novis gown.
Eve tried on a number of trends for the night in a harness-detailed dress with pleat and lace detailing. This frock wasn’t my particular cup of tea…
Hosts Regina King and Tracee Ellis Ross looked stunning onstage in metallic prints. I’m living for Tracee’s crop top and high-waist pencil skirt ensemble!
Queen Latifah added a bit of shimmer to the stage in a sequin long-sleeve boatneck dress. Chic no?
Black Girls Rock! founder Beverly Bond was the belle of the ball in an over-the-top gown.
Venus Williams’s floral sweetheart dress was glorious, but her multi-colored braids weren’t as refined as the event called for.
Last, but not least at the Black Girls Rock! Shot Callers Dinner was Estelle who tried on a leather and knit Tommy Hilfiger dress.
The Obama Family looked Fall-perfect in Washington, D.C. No seriously: how could you not love them?
Queen Mother of the Catwalk, Naomi Campbell looked lovely in a sparkling gown on The Jonathan Ross Show in London.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey was simple and chic in all-black on Watch What Happens Live.
A $275 Rebecca Taylor Cutout Ponte Dress and cutout booties were Laila Ali’s choices for the Los Angeles Ultimate Women’s Expo. Isn’t she gorgeous? Cute look!
Closing out the week was Jessica White who went bold at the 2013 DOE Fund Gala in NYC in a green dress.
That’s all folks! Whose look caught your eye this weekend?
