Red Carpet Report: Ebony 100 Gala

So, obviously my invitation was lost in the mail. I mean, that’s the only logical explanation as to why I was not at the Ebony 100 Gala, which was last night, in New York City’s Jazz at Lincoln Center. But, me being the bigger person, I will not hold grudges. I will be an adult and move on and talk about what really matters: what people wore on the red carpet. 

The Good:

Image
Amy Dubois Barnett- Nice color, nice makeup, nice hair.
Image
Keija Minor
Image
Berry Gordy- The tie sucks, but his smile makes up for it…..a little.
Image
Rhonda Ross- Lovely dress, hair and accessories.
Image
Lee Daniels- Looking good. Suit could stand to be a little more fitted.
Image
Jessica White- Stunning woman, but the dress, hair, and the makeup are just a shade too severe.

 

The Bad:

Image
Carla Hall- No. Just no.
Image
Desiree Rogers- Too much tulle, not enough pretty.
Image
Cynthia Rowley- I usually love her quirky style, but this is just bad.
Image
Eskedar Gobeze- Maybe she was trying to channel Marilyn Monroe, but between the stockings and the shawl made of children’s tears and bunny fur, it was not good.
Image
Mellody Hobson- Too cutesy for a grown woman.
Image
Marcus Samuelsson- Too. Much. Going. On. Can’t focus.
Image
Rachel Johnson- With such great stature, she should have chosen a better color than “preschool puke brown”.
Image
Pauletta Washington- Separately, maybe I could like the hair, the purse, and the dress. But all together, it looks like she’s trying too hard. What’s with the stockings?

The Gorgeous:

Image
Jermaine Jackson, Randy Jackson, Marlon Jackson, and Tito Jackson- Well done dudes. Well done.
Image
LaLa Anthony- This dress is amazing on her body. The hair and makeup look elegant and simple.
Image
Magic and Cookie Johnson- His graphite suit is MONEY and she look SLICK in her black dress.
Image
Nick Cannon- Love Love Love brown with pink and fuschia. The patterned suit against the floral tie and pocket square scream Gentleman. Well done.
Image
Kimberly and Tyson Chandler- He’s a tall drink of water in his suit with the skinny tie. And she looks elegant and poised. Beautiful couple.
Image
Van Jones- Great smile (check), Great suit (check), Great tie (check). Slow clap all around.
Image
Victor Cruz and Elaina Watley- I like a man who thinks outside the Black Suit Box. This is a great color choice for him and Elaina looks cute in her dress and (I Want Those Shoes) heels.
