Starting off this weeks Style Files are Yaya Dacosta, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kerry Washington, Estelle and Keri Hilson. 

  •  I love the ombre effect of her dress
  • Yaya looks equally amazing in a long black satin gown with gold capelet
  • Tracee nails it each and every time. The embellished sleeves make this look pop
  • Estelle went for a feminine edgy look with a long flowy maxi and leather jacket to complete the look
  • Keri Hilson has been wowing us lately and she looked amazing at the soul train awards

  • DJ Kiss is showing us how to look sophisticated when rocking a fur vest. I love how she paired it with a denim shirt and penicl skirt.
  • Zoe Saldana is definitely a forced to be reckoned with and this look shows why
  • Jennifer William from Basketball Wives Miami looked great at the launch of her lip gloss line Lucid. Her pink Louboutins are hot!
  • Kelly has been having the best style year ever. She looks gorgeous
  • Serena has had a few mishaps lately but she shows us how simplicity can go a long way.

Who rocked it for you this weekend?


I love everything about all of these looks.

  • Melanie Fiona’s dress has a classic pattern, but the neckline and boots give it a modern twist
  • I love Rihanna’s scalloped thigh high stockings. Uber sexy with the peach mini and that hat is TDF. Can’t wait to wear mine
  • Yaya always looks classy and I am loving her patterned dress.

  • I love Katerina Graham’s look. The yellow blazer really pops
  • I love elements of Solanges look, just not everything together.
  • Estelle almost had a winning look until I saw the boots and the handbag.
