YBF Chicks Do The Black Girls Rock! Awards

YBF celebs came out this weekend for the 4th annual Black Girls Rock! Awards in NYC.  AND YBF was on the scene to take in the fabness.  Tracee Ellis Ross--who hosted alongside Regina King--made her arrival in a fabulous embellished cut out back dress and YSL pumps.

Raven Symone was there looking fab and to receive the "Young, Gifted, and Black" Award herself.

MJB was also an award recipient of the "Icon" Award.

And so was Naomi Campbell who received the "Fashionista" Award. Looking fab in Alexander Wang Na Na. More pics when you read the rest...

The alternative pop/r&B fab chick Janelle Monae received the "Who's Got Next" Award.

Ok Raven.

Anthony Hamilton brought his son along.

Mary hit the carpet and signed a guitar for charity.

Loves the back of Tracee's dress.

Melanie Fiona was there to perform and rocked Herve Leger on the carpet.

Andre Harrell came out to support of course.

Queen Latifah was there to receive the "Trailblazer" award.

Regina on the carpet.

DJ Cassidy was there too.

And co-host of the DL Hughley morning show Jacque Reid hit the carpet in a blue dress, Robert Rodriguez leather coat, Gucci boots, and her Chanel bag.  She was there to present Raven with her award.

To introduce Naomi Campbell, Tracee and Regina imitated her walk:

Funny.

Lovely.

MJB and Queen kicked it backstage.

The founder of the event Beverly Bond kicked it with the hosts.

Spinderella and Raven were spotted in the audience.

It never ceases to amaze me

It never ceases to amaze me how many negative comments some of you ladies ALWAYS have. So what if you don't like what someone is wearing. Keep it to yourself. Why can't women just build each other up instead of tearing each other down. Blessings to you ALL but much LOVE to the ladies that see the beauty in our sistas no matter what they are wearing or what size they are.

So much to say...First this

So much to say...First this is a great theme for an awards show. Why isn't something like this on television replacing the BET Awards? Oh, maybe because is has too much positivity and Lil wayne, Drake or Jay Z didn't perform or crazy Kanye. I thought all these women looked nice. I am happy Naomi behaved, oh wait she only assaults people a couple times per year and has reached her quota LMAO (OKAY NAOMI I'M SORRY THAT WAS A CHEAP SHOT, BUT YOU LOOKED PREETY IF THAT HELPS). Janelle Monae is very talented and reminds me of a girl version of Andre 3000! But, if my memory serves me correct she still seems to be an underground artist (which is not good if your signed to a major record label)but, if she is still on Bad Boy, that would explain. Why?

im so glad to see that we

im so glad to see that we have our own award shows by our peers. we surely need more!!! im sick of the days of our ppl shuckin-n-jivin for these awards when u know they dont respect us. for example, halle should have won for dorothy dandridge instead of monster ball, denzel should have won for malcolm x instead of training day. among others, the stellar angela bassett sould have won for tina turner but didn't win anything. that was way back in the days when we weren't even getting nominated. im glad there r ppl like james cameron who rewarded her with the starring role as a black hero in strange days. that was back when nobody is looking. now-a-days NOTHING respectable about us gets thru hollyweird w/o some unwanted compromise. do u really think that if children of men was made here, that unknown blk girl would have gotten suck a transcending role. hummph!

Angel: I would have loved

Angel: I would have loved to be at this event! Janelle Monae, I love your fit, and music. I love that she wears basically the same outfit so people will have to focus on her gift, although haters can’t seem to get past it sometimes you have to excuses ignorance. Oh shut the hell up with that hating shit (can someone disagree with a person's choices without it being a "hate" issue)- Jill Scott, Angie Stone, Joss Stone, etc., etc., etc - all make their music the focus and still change up their looks - so what the fuck are you talking about it. Is this Janelle's masterplan to seem authentic?? Oh - so what, her marketing strategy is to wear the same outfit so that all we do is concentrate on singing - oh please, now you are reaching. Let's be clear - if anything - most people only recognize her for the look and only a few even know her for her music (metropolis). why is that every time some one does not agree with someone's approach, you have to be a hater. can someone just not like something???? What - do you call someone a hater every time they disagree with you??? Janelle is not this crazy mainstream star that should give reason for people to "hate" on her.

Is it me or does Raven look

Is it me or does Raven look like she could be LisaRaye's daughter? I always thought they looked so much alike. Nice look for Raven.

Janelle is doing quite the

Janelle is doing quite the opposite of not having people focus on her clothes and focus on her music. the fact that is all she wears draws attention to her clothing im just saying. Eveybody looks nice though.

Personally i love MJB, but

Personally i love MJB, but she is aging in her face, she needs a good oil control and makeup artist! Love Ms.Ross's dress, everyone else looks good in their black or dark colors... Everyone but Raven, she looks like my aunt going to a funeral!

Spin didn’t get the memo on the dress code, huh? Thank you - janelle wears that same look EVERYWHERE. We get it- you don't like high heels, short skirts and weaves but you can still change it up at least once. Damn, Micheal Jackson didn't wear his Thriller jacket as many times as you have done this look!!! Damn!! Everyone else looks great. Where's Taraji, Nia, Gabby, Kerry and Vivica - damn, even Wendy Williams. They got to get a piece this too!!!

Don't like Raven & Queen

Don't like Raven & Queen outfits Not flattering at all.. Did Spinderella not have time to dress 4 the event? I don't know who Jacque Reid is, but her outfit is fierce Love the blue and black Everybody else looks good

I like Ravens size, she is

I like Ravens size, she is not unhealthy. Shes is no where near obese so ppl get off of her weight. Thats why we got girls starving themselves because they don't want to be called fat. I used to be real big and I've lost over 80 pounds, I still would like to lose more, but I'm healthy and carry my weight welll just like Miss Raven. I'm just so happy to see black women embrassing each other instead of hating on each other. As for Janelle Monae, you have to get her message to get what she is doing with her look. She don't want us to look at her for fashion, she wants us to hear her talent, if u don't like then u don't like it but its her clothes and we don't have to wear them.

Raven is very cute and

Raven is very cute and slimming down but should work a little harder at being healthy and dressing youthful.((THE SUCKING IN YOUR STOMACH STANCE IS NOT A HYPE LOOK!)) All and all this was an beautiful affair kudos:) Na Na Campbell looking vibrant once again!

Anthony Hamilton is such a wonderful man. Not only is he married to an absolutely gorgeous dark chocolate woman with a beautiful and healthy family, but he also shows support to the sisters by attending the event and bringing his young prince with him. i have hope
Princess Pink's picture

I know that everyone is not

I know that everyone is not meant to be a small size, but Raven needs to slim down or find a new stylist. It seems that her size forces her to wear clothes that are not age appropiate. Most of the gowns that she chooses makes her look like a little girl playing dress up. She isn't the right age to pull them off.
La-La's picture

I dont know if you guys

I dont know if you guys noticed, but Raven just told her haters to sit down and shut the fig up in that dresss!! killllin em WHO THE HELL INVITED STEVE URKILL'S LITTLE SISTER??? SHOULD SHE BE HOME INVENTING SOMETHING LIKE....QUALITY MUSIC!

The chick wearing the TUX and

The chick wearing the TUX and Brogues is sooo fashion FWD...I loveeeeeee her LOOK. Her overall look is BITCHIN...i love the brogues ...LOVE IT and the Hair is the ISH. You Go Girl and do your thang. Let those Haters without a clue keep talking ISH. Come to Europe lets show u love here. This is how to rock it without showing your nipple rings ppl. RiRi needs to get a CLUE. Raven DRESSES LIKE MY 66yr old Mama. There is a white chick, the lead singer of Gossip. She is 3 x Raven's size and u should see her fashion style.Its off the chain...Raven go steal this chick ideas ...b/c this...your LOOK is NOT it. The funny thing is that you think u look like Halle...your confidence is sooo high but NAW u look trailer trash NEXT

The EXACT same outfit is redundant!! But I do admire your positivity!!!! Kudos!!! :)
