I decided to take a break from my New York Fashion Week coverage. Although fashion week ended last Thursday there are still a few more designers I will feature because I was blown away by their creations. Take a look at these amazing dresses on some amazing wmen. from the NAACP Image Awards.

Pops of color definitely brightens up anyone’s mood and this is true with Tia Mowry and Keke Palmer

Vanessa Williams and Tracee Ellis Ross stunned everyone in their black gowns.

To round up the 43rd Image Awards Red Carpet we have Meagan Good, Holly Robinson Pete and Taraji P. Henson who gave us a touch of glam.

I was perusing some of my favorite blogs and I came across these interesting sneakers that Beyonce and Tracee Ellis Ross have been rocking. Well you can add Alicia Keys to the list of celebs who have taken a liking to this unique sneaker.

Ok so let’s start the week off right with some of the hottest celebrities. This was a great weekend for color and glam! Check out who made it this weeks Style Files

  • Melanie Fiona looked simply stunning in this black gown. I think of the 3 Es when I see Melanie: Elegant, Effortless, Edgy. She looks great.
  • Paula Patton has been on the press machine for the new Mission Impossible movie. This look is perfect for a holiday party.
  • Gabrielle Union paired this lovely pink dress with black and white pumps. I love the color contrast.
  • Mary, Mary, Mary! I think she always look great in white, but this is just thebomb.com. There’s nothing else that needs to be said except “Lisa Ray, you must retire wearing white”
  • Estelle looks great as well. The purple jumpsuit compliments her very well and I love the accessories.
  • Tracee Ellis Ross…can she do anything wrong fashion wise? I don’t think so.

 

Tracee Ellis Ross has to have one of the most versatile styles. She can rock an edgy look one day then switch it up to classic and sophisticated, and then the very next day she is boho chic. Well she was spotted rocking an uber casual look and looked amazing.

She rocked black skinny jeans, a Michael Jackson t-shirt, black blazer, and one of my favorite pairs of Jordans the Vs. She went real ’round the way girl with the earrings and shades and completed the look with a black leather bag. I love this look on Tracee. It shows that she likes to have fun with her style,. Here is a look similar to Tracee’s. Each item is $50 or less. So this look is a steal!
