Last night my friend Demetria Lucas aka A Belle in Brooklyn hosted a cocktail event at EVR in Manhattan. Her gatherings always attract a fashionable crowd, so I tapped photographer Dario Calmese to take a few pix of the fly attendees:
Journalist Patrice Peck gave us a sultry stare from underneath a black fedora. A pop of red added the only flourish this gray and ebony outfit needed. Hot!
Fashion Bomb reader Kelli looked work ready in a Bebe trench and patterned dress.
Guys always know what’s up! Travis looked dapper in an Alfred Dunhill blazer and bowtie from his line, Kingston21.
This young lady looked smashing in a blue suit offset by suede tangerine pumps and a fuchsia top. I love a colored suit. Hot!
Hairstylist Kiara traveled from Philly to attend the event, and uplifted a bodycon dress with holographic pumps from Forever 21.
Alanzo Dale was snow ready in camouflage pants and sturdy boots.
Jason always looks great! The school teacher chose a Club Monaco suit and a Kenzo scarf for the night.
Can you tell Fola is a model? She made a simple tank and high waisted pants look amazing.
Lisa Marie Phoenix worked an all black look, accessorized by a turban.
Jaclyn looked smart in readers and a cool blond pompadour hairstyle.
How cute is she? DaMonica mixed prints in a green sweater and Boxing Kitten pants.
Danjuma skewed simple in navy and charcoal tones.
This young lady worked a pair of snake print pumps and a fun Forever 21 blazer.
Kela Walker from Kela’s Kloset offset a black dress with an on trend striped blazer.
More stripes! Publicist Alex chose a Joe Fresh top and DKNY pants for the festivities.
Essence Magazine Relationships Editor Charreah Jackson was ravishing in a printed red dress.
And the best dressed DJ, DJ CEO, punctuated a striped button down and vest with red pants.
The night’s hostess with the mostest looked super cute in a Nanette Lepore Club mix dress and suede wedge sandals. Check out a close up of her shoes:
As for me, I hopped on Spring 2013’s ‘world prints’ trend in a Mary Katrantzou Spring 2013 jersey tee, Rag & Bone jeans, Jimmy Choo Anouk pumps, and my fave Proenza Schouler bag, worn as a clutch.
What do you think?
