Solange, Joan Smalls, & Rachel Roy Hit "Runway To Win" + Michelle Obama CHALLENGES Jimmy Fallon's Fitness!

 

Some of our fave ladies in fashion gathered last night for "Runway To Win," a fundraiser for President Obama's 2012 reelection campaign.   See pics of Solange, Chanel Iman and Russell Simmons inside, and watch First Lady Michelle Obama hilariously beat Jimmy Fallon at dodgeball...

Solange Knowles and tons of other fashionable folks crowded into the Theory clothing store last night for a fundraising event co-hosted by Anna Wintour and Scarlett Johansson. And solo wore this gorgeous Vera Wang Spring 2012 collection gown.

Tickets to the sold-out benefit ranged from $250 for the cocktail reception to $2,500 per person for a seat at the dinner table.

The ladies checked out items from more than 23 designers and celebrities who created pro-Obama apparel to benefit the Obama Victory Fund.

Mama Tina and Solo's sister, Beyonce, also designed a t-shirt ($45) for the event.

Rachel Roy stopped traffic in her fire red slacks.  And rocked her own t-shirt design for the campaign.  Loves the look.

Model Joan Smalls looked amazing.

And models Chanel Iman and Karlie Kloss also posed for a few flicks together before heading out to Jay's Carnegie Hall performance.

And of course, anywhere there are models, Russell Simmons will show up.

 

And in other Obama news........

Last night, First Lady Michelle Obama appeared on a taped segment for "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."  She and Jimmy competed in a comical series of physical fitness challenges at the White House to promote the Let's Move campaign. Gotta  love our First Lady.  Watch the clip above.....

chicken leg dumb dumb beyonces sista dont have education. All she know is how she look.; anybody can be a model nowadays but what do you have going on other than your family being the most well known thieves in the country. Stole Grammys, songs from songwriters, etc. This family is pathetic!

Wow Chanel & Joan look too

Wow Chanel & Joan look too tiny (gross tiny) in that side-by-side with Solange. They are beautiful women, but Miss Iman looks like she would look better with ten more pounds. But I know their body shape is what the fashion industry calls for, so it'll never happen. Nonetheless, all the women look great.

Joan Smalls is a nappy haired weave wearing big nose island darky PuertoRican who changed her last name to Smalls because she didn't want anybody to know that she was a Puerto...I don't blame her. Darky Puertos are bottom feeders.

Solange looks NICE here. Chanel is KILLING it. I love her poetic simplicity! WORK it Ladies! Rachel Roy can stand to lose a few pounds. And for a designer she has ZERO style.

*gasp* Are you PASSING

*gasp* Are you PASSING JUDGEMENT on Rachel Roy because she is not a SIZE 2 like you are? You do know that confidence and self esteem are not found in clothes, right? Isn't that why you broke your keyboard typing so FURIOUSLY to say in the Denzel, Pauletta, and Ashanti post?! Not only are you a crazy, self-righteous, psycho, but now a hypocrite too.
Anonymous's picture

This is a POST on

This is a POST on STYLE. Pauletta was at a movie Premiere (she is a wife not a Celeb). And she was there to support her HUSBAND! There is nothing wrong with posting about how people dress but Pauletta is not that woman. She is confident and secure. Rachel Roy on the other had is a designer and she can't dress. And she has gained a LOT of weight because she never used to look like this. These are valid comments and the only CRAZY person is you because you don't understand that.

I really hope you seek HELP. You've been on YBF all hours (like a deranged STALKER) using my names and speaking vulgarity and stupidity. You need serious prayers but this is also the last time I will address you. You just feed off attention and you're a sicking Cyber BULLY. And using gay slurs is NOT cool and it's not anything I would ever type. You need HELP.
