Mary J. Blige's 1st Annual FFAWN Event
Aug 05 | by Natasha
YBF had the privilege of being invited to Mary J. Blige's 1st Annual Foundation For The Advancement of Women Now Fundraising Intimate Dinner and Auction. Her celeb friends Ciara, Steve Stoute, Gayle King, Kevin Liles, Andre Leon Talley, and others came out to NYC's Barbetta Restaurant to support and looked fabulous doing so:
Ciara--who looked stunning by the way-- told us that she's not sure she's going to keep this short hairstyle much longer because she just can't get used to it. It's starting to grow on us, but we have a feeling she may be removing the wig and going back to the long locks pretty soon. She walked away with a Gucci luggage set from the fundraising event. Mary explained what her Foundation was all about: "FFAWN was established to inspire women from all walks of life to gain the confidence and skills they need to reach their individual potential. Establishing FFAWN is a way of sharing our success and experience."
Mr. Steve Stoute commented, "The support here tonight is a perfect example of what can happen when friends join together for a cause. FFAWN was created because we feel every woman can reach her greatest potential despite any negative circumstances."
Mary's sis was there as well. Other prizes celebs and guests bid on last night: A pair of signed Lenny Kravitz glasses, Lebron James and Kobe Bryant match up tickets including a private jet to the first game (won by Steve Stoute himself), a Diane Von Furstenburg clutch, and Jay-Z's seats to a Yankee's game. A fab affair for a good cause. More pics when you read the rest...
Gayle King looked fab in her pink Michelle O-ish pencil dress.
Loved CiCi's look.
Spike's wife Tonya Lee was there.
And so were NBA ballers Rudy Gay of the Grizzlies and Jarrett Jack of the Raptors.
