LaLa Anthony, Estelle, Rutina Wesley, & More Go MoMA GALA Fab

Estelle, LaLa Anthony and Rutina Wesley were among the YBF celebs who celebrated the world's many cultures last night at a fabulous gala in New York City.  See the pics inside.....

Last night, the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted the Multicultural Benefit Gala To Celebrate "An Evening of Many Cultures."

LaLa Anthony was among the guests and she wore a blue Vera Wang gown with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

"True Blood" actress Rutina Wesley wore a sexy black gown with leather top portion and a chiffon bottom. 

Star Jones wore a deep purple gown.  Not my fave look for her.

Robert De Niro arrived with his wife Grace Hightower who was one of the honorees at the event.  Grace looked fabulous in a pewter gown with a bow at the waist.

Robert was seen talking to director Spike Lee at the gala.

Later the pair posed for a pic with Samuel Jackson.

Spike Lee attended the gale with his gorgeous wife Tonya Lewis Lee who dazzled in a fuchsia gown with gold heels. 

Samuel and his wife LaTayna Richardson Jackson were also honorees.
 

News anchor Al Roker arrived with his wife, fellow news anchor Deborah Roberts who looked great in her multi-colored gown.  

Actress and Broadway star Angela Bassett wore a black and white gown with double bows across the chest.  Showing some of her sex appeal.  Not mad.

Estelle also went the sexy route in a revealing black gown with intricate detail at the top.

And Johnson Publications President Desiree Rogers wore a fun and frilly outfit with ruffles and sequin.  You'd never imagine she was over 50!

Actress Rosie Perez also attended and posed with Geoffrey Fletcher.

Is Spike Lee related to Ruby

Is Spike Lee related to Ruby Dee? They favor each other. I guess wearing a tux or evening wear and pairing them with sneakers/casual shoes is the style for men in Hollywood.

I'm suffering from Lala

I'm suffering from Lala Overload. Truly sick of seeing her sleepy eyes everywhere. I love Grace and Robert...still together after all these years, and they both look hot! Wish I could say the same for Sam Jackson and his wife. Also loving Spike and his wife--she's about a foot taller...cute! Thumbs up on Estelle and Angela B's gowns.

Hmm despite the bronzed

Hmm despite the bronzed contoured mess LaLa actually looks good….that lazy eye tho… Woah eyelashes -_- Rutina smh Star Jones looks gross, sorry. Her full body lift scares me and looks painful. Some "fat people" should stay "fat". Mad at Tonya Lewis for putting her stunning ass in a basic grad dress… Love estelles dress….she should have worn a bright bustier (my opinion) and she needs to throw away the red lipstick….im sick of seeing her with it on.

It's my own personal taste

It's my own personal taste but I do not like when someone puts on closed toe shoes with long beautiful gowns especially platform heels.

I'm always screaming for lala

I'm always screaming for lala to open her eyes. The dress looks nice, but excuse me for being reminded of Beyonce! Her show definitely made me like her more. Star Jones looks a cheap bridal shop mess with Jcpenny's jewels. De Niro's wife looks pregnant. Can't be! Spike lee has me giggling at both he & his wife. This is what you try to redirect in Macy's! Angela Bassett, I'm not a fan of the dress, but beautiful woman. Estelle, I like! Rosie Perez, you shouldn't have stopped by before heading to Ruby Tuesday's with the girls!

Why does Lala always look so

Why does Lala always look so dead in the eyes with a fake smile plastered on her face?! I think she's gorgeous on her show when she's just talking and being herself but these pics make me cringe.

I know. Its like she is a

I know. Its like she is a dummy and someone is operating her mouth seperately from the rest of her face. A smile and lifeless in the eyes. You hit on the nose. I guess she can't help it. Unfortuantely because they are big, its so noticeable.

Robert DeNiro's wife and Tonya lee looked good(even know Spike lee should EVER stand next to her for a photo) angela bassett looked great as usually very talented actress... #thatsall

Oh man Lala!! Your dress

Oh man Lala!! Your dress could have ten times better! You're young, you could have added some spice. Look at Angela Bassett, she is not playing. Its like the wedding dress. Why wear the highest heels on the street, expensive outfits on the floor of a basketball game and then fall flat during your opportunities to "WOW" the audience. You missed the mark again.

Natasha once AGAIN on behalf

Natasha once AGAIN on behalf of everyone we would like INFORMATION on the event, NOT a description on what we can already see the celebrity wearing. SMH black people are interested in more than twitter beef. If you could provide as much information on social issues as you do basketball wives you'd be a real business women.
Anonymous's picture

I agree. There are very few

I agree. There are very few places on the net where you will find a collection of photos with people of color doing positive things. Sadly. And while ybf has the inside track on a lot of it, it would be nice if the blog gave a little more information about the events and especially causes. We can SEE what they're wearing. This is called constructive criticism, not hate.
Anonymous's picture

Even the smartest politician

Even the smartest politician (I know the two words together define the term oxymoron) knows the majority of people do not care about details but are pulled in by what sparks their interests. People do not look towards blogs to become smarter or more abreast with current events so to your point, Natasha knows what she is doing and is indeed a businesswoman. Putting that responsibility on the owner of blogsites means that all other avenues of influence must be shot to shit!
Stacey's picture

What you just said doesn't

What you just said doesn't even make since. YOU read every word Natasha writes about basketball whores not just look at the pictures. Blogs are about NEWS-INFORMATION. to say someone isn't responsible for their own business is irrational and why Natasha will never pull down the sponsor$$$ perezhilton does. Don't improve your business Natasha do what you've always done so you get get what you've always got Natasha. STACEY good luck with your future your gonna need it.
