Black Girls Rock .... dUH!

This past weekend, the 3rd Annual Black Girls Rock Awards was held in New York City. The event, which was created by Beverly Bond to celebrate and empower women for their work in the entertainment industry as well as philanthropy. From what I have read from a list of creditable sources and sites Necole Bitchie being one, the event was jammin and they definitely showed up and showed out there were performances by Brandy, Ciara, Keyshia Cole, India Arie and Alicia Keys as well as a serenade set from singers Anthony Hamiltion, Eric Benet and Luke James.
Of course the fashion was a hit on the red carpet, take a peep below to see some of my favorite styles of the night!

My girl Taraji P. Henson, was spotted in a gold Diane Von Furstenberg dress and Christian Louboutin platform pumps.

My Boo thang Keyshia Cole looked amazing in a floor length ruched dress with embellished shoulders. She was styled by one of my favorite celeb stylist, none other than Olori Swank!

Yall know Janelle Monae graced the red carpet in one of her signature tuxedo suits!

I love me some LaLa Anthony too. She was lookin hot and spicy too in her velvet dress by Balmain.

Basketball Wives star Laura Govan made a statement in a customized Anna Franchesa bustier feather dress.

Ms. Keys was spotted in a fitted dress (styled by June Ambrose) and Christian Louboutin Pumps.

Can't forget about my favorite aunt (in my head of course) lol . She shined in a sleek and sexy black dress !
