While we’re freezing here in NYC, artists are getting their lives in LA, and kicked off Grammy weekend festivities with the Essence Black Women in Music celebration. The black carpet was fabulous defined! Let’s take a look:

Essence EIC Vanessa de Luca kicked off the festivities in a purple jumpsuit and cape combo.

Remy Ma flaunted a sequined Ott Dubai dress and Gucci platforms.

Beyonce protegés Chloe and Halle are flaw free. I love their Uel Camilo ensembles! I’ll take both!

I’m loving everything about Keirsey Clemons look, especially her voluminous coif. Yes to this Tom Ford Dress!

Letoya Luckett oozed vintage glamour in a pink beaded Sherri Hill dress.

I absolutely love Eva Marcille with long hair! The model looked glamours in a faux fur coat from Mistress Rocks.

Producer Mona Scott Young bet on an all black look, accented by Christian Louboutin peep toes.

Fashion Bomb Favorite Tiwa Savage shined in a sequined look from Yousef Akbar’s Resort 2017 collection.

Yara Shahidi looked pretty and playful in a Greta Constantin dress and Soon Space earrings.

Janelle Monae stuck to her siganture black and white with a harlequin print Off White jumpsuit and an Anya Hindmarch clutch.

Melanie Fiona kept it cool in orange separates and an embellished jacket.

Mario represented for the fellas in an all black ‘fit.

Lil Mama showed some leg in an Antidote LA duster and YSL shoes.

Lastly, Erykah Badu didn’t come to play! She slayed in an Ashi Studio gown. Hot!
