YBF ON THE SCENE: The Root Inaugural Ball Exclusive Flicks

TheYBF.com was on the scene at  The Washington Post's The Root Inaugural Ball this week at the Smithsonian's National American History Museum.  And we've got some exclusive pics from the event: Oprah skipped the red carpet and headed straight for VIP.  Looks like she worked out her Inaugural dress "situation" quite nicely. Tatyana Ali hit the carpet looking fab. And Chris Tucker and Michael Eric Dyson exchanged numbers on the red carpet.  Yes, Michael and I bonded over our love for our Blackberry Bolds as well. Photographer: Scott Taylor of BlackStar Multimedia More pics when you read the rest... Michael and his wife hit the carpet. Tom Joyner and his wife Donna Richardson were there as well: Cast members from "The Wire" made an appearance. Bishop T.D. Jakes brought his son along: Isaiah Washington looked handsome: Miss District of Columbia hit the carpet. Our new U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and his wife came out to party. Biz Markie was killing us in the head to toe mink/fur/whatever. Spike Lee and Tonya were there. Non-YBF chick Diane Von Furstenberg chatted it up on the red carpet.  I'm a fan.  And that coat was the business. Essence Beauty Editor Mikki Taylor was there. John Singleton brought who we think--and hope--is his daughter. Sam Jackson was in the mix. And Chris cracked us up without even trying. Fun and fab times indeed.
