• Hot! or Hmm… Solange Knowles, Estelle, Chanel Iman, and more Celebrate Fashion’s Night Out 2011

    What a whirlwind last night was! So many celebs turned out to celebrate the start of Fashion Week, and its annual shopping (and free champagne guzzling) frenzy, Fashion’s Night Out. Let’s take a look at who showed out and who just showed up!

    Selita Ebanks, Estelle, and Corinne Bailey Rae all looked super adorable at Diane Von Furstenberg‘s shindig, although I wish Ms. Bailey Rae carried a smaller bag. That large bag looks like she stopped by the party after coming from the office, no?

    Solange Knowles looked prim and perfect spinning at Lord & Taylor in a colorblock frock and rose gold loafer pumps. Hot!

    June Ambrose opted for a menswear look with a feminine twist. Those sequin pants and top hat are giving me life! She topped off the ensemble with her signature Ruby Woo. Work it Ms. Ambrose…

    Tyson Beckford is perpetually delicious. He kept it simple with a classic suit, but as we well know the man can wear anything– or nothing– and still look terrific. A+.

    Laila Ali showed up to Destination Maternity‘s event in a silver sparkly number and some black shrug… thing. It was not chilly last night, I don’t know where she was going in that shrug! It just takes away from the whole look.

    Pajama afficionada Rachel Roy debuted her collaboration collection with Amar’e Stoudemire last night in a hipster chic sequined frock and flat sandals. Hair and makeup are on point as usual, and I must say, as a sucker for color and sparkle, I’m diggin’ this dress. I wish Mr. Stoudemire did a little better than just a t-shirt and a blazer. Still, he pulls it off well.

    Angela Bassett rocked all black everything for her panel at Giorgio Armani‘s stand alone store. The woman is flawless. Love!

    Lala and Carmelo looked positively adorable together at Rag & Bone last night. Ms. Vazquez-Anthony has taken quite a shine to star prints (No pun intended), and while I love this dress, that bra… that bra! Why must I cry? Melo’s tee is hot indeed, but I’m not sold on the plaid- leopard print combo he’s rocking here. You can’t have both prints, sir!

    Ever the quirky chick, Nicki Minaj wore a kimono with gold piping and (Father, give me the strength) chopsticks in her hair. But after that VMA ensemble, I can’t even be mad at this look!

    I could have predicted Ne-Yo‘s outfit yesterday afternoon. Button down? Check. Jacket? Check. Fedora? Does it even need to be said? While I am an advocate of those men who dress like gentlemen, I would love to see Ne-Yo switch up the swag every once in a while.

    Chanel Iman made an appearance at Sunglass Hut last night. As much as I adore her as a model, I am thoroughly underwhelmed by this look.

    And lastly, Dwyane Wade looked positively strapping next to Vogue‘s Grace Coddington. Melo, take note: this is how you wear leopard-print kicks!

    What do you think? Did you see any of our fabulous celebs in person last night?
