I’ve been quite the busy bee this month! Last night, I was honored to host a premiere screening for OWN’s new docu-series, Love in the City, sponsored by Clairol and the 135th Street Agency.
Set in New York, the show follows celebrity hairstylist Kiyah Wright, fashionista Tiffany Jones, photographer Chenoa Maxwell, and entrepreneur Bershan Shaw as they bond over love, friendship, heartache, and relationships. Pegged as the multicultural answer to Sex and the City, the series promises real drama, but zero catfights (a nice balance of sass and class).
The show’s cast is quite the stylish group (as you can see!), so the kind folks at OWN thought it fitting that I MC the fabulous gathering.
Take a look at who came out to show support:
Entertainment Mogul Mona Scott Young blessed the proceedings in striped separates
Angela Yee rolled through in a printed top and black pants
Uptown Magazine Editor-in-Chief Isoul Harris posed with Bethann Hardison
ABC News’s Joi-Marie McKenzie smiled with Rae Holliday of RaeHolliday.com and songstress Elle Varner
Marielle Bobo of Ebony Magazine, Nikki Ogunnaike of Glamour.com, and Ericka Goodman from Ebony lit up the room
Show castmember and hairstylist Kiyah Wright looked sultry next to stylist Jason Rembert and hairstylist Ursula Stephen
Style maven Tai Beauchamp and In Style Magazine’s Kahlana Barfield looked absolutely lovely
I loved Ursula Stephen’s Topshop romper! She looked cute next to Felicia Walker Benson of ThisThatBeauty.com and Marvet Britto
Show Co-Producer D’Angela Proctor bet on black
Charlene Dance of Strength of Nature looked radiant next to Geneva Thomas of Bravo’s Blood, Sweat, and Heels
And Chenoa Maxwell held up a copy of Juicy Magazine next to editor Talia Smart Young
It was an amazing night!
