Ciara also showed up for the fashion festivities and was seen taking in the BCBG Max Azaria show along with Ashley Simpson. Actress Joy Bryant attended Glamour Magazine’s “Fashion Gives Back” benefit last night. While rapper Eve was seen at the Van Kleef & Arpels French inspired theme party at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Pics from all the events can be seen on the next page with more added to our gallery.

  1. Is Ciara wearing Rockawear? I like the hat thingy. Her calf muscle is about to explode. She should lay off the weights before she becomes too muscular and starts looking manly.

  2. Sorry for 2 comments back to back but I missed the pics on page two. Joy Bryant is adorable and it is nice to see her here. Eve on the other hand is a disappointment. The party she attended was very swanky and to see her show up with that darn thing proudly showed off around her ankle is very sad. She could have covered it up like she did at the Kids Awards. Very few Black women were at that event and for her to be there showing off that thing looking like a criminal is really sad. Keep wearing pant suits until that thing is taking off. Have some respect for yourself.

  3. I’m happy for Alek Wek. For this woman to come from where she did and accomplish what she has in the world of fashion is really amazing. On top of that she appears to have found love. She is married to a gorgeous Bristish businessman.You can see them here.

  4. CIARA is so goregeous and making sure that stomach is tight. Brown Sista keep making that paper. you are representing us well. All the ladies looks beautiful.

  5. The ladies look lovely. Eve is rocking that ankle bracelet like its a fashion accessory, It’s not cute. Take a cab next time girl !!

  6. I like Kimora’s dress and shoes. That’s fabulous!
    Ciara is pretty and I’m loving that hat. Don’t care for the rest of the outfit.
    Joy is cute. Eve is looking tacky everyday. The last time I saw her looking pretty
    was for her Tambourine video.
    I read an article about Alex in Vogue/Essence. I’m glad to made to supermodel statis.
    She can walk that runway too.

    NOT-A-FAN, Thank you for showing us that picture. I didn’t know she was married.
    He’s fine! :thumbsup:

  7. OMG I love it. From what I heard the show was off the chain. Big Ups to my black sistas :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

  8. I was wondering why there aren’t any picturesof Alek Wek in the models gallery, isn’t she one of the top black super models?
