BOO'D UP AGAIN? Ashanti & Nelly CUDDLE UP At DKMS Gala! (Solange & Elle Varner GET FAB Too)
Oh? Ashanti & Nelly snapping pics with arms around each other on last night's DKMS Gala red carpet? Yeppers. The couple who have publicly & verbally denied each other, but who are often times seen as VERY much a couple at parties & red carpets together are at it again.
Check out the singer & rapper getting fab...together...for a cause in NYC. Plus Solange & Elle Varner were there too....
Dressed in all black and coordinated with touches of burgundy (him with his tie & her with her hair & nails), Ashanti & Nelly looked very much the cute couple on last night's 6th annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala at Cipriani Wall Street.
Ashanti added a touch of sexy to her Tony Ward Couture Spring/Summer 2011 Collectiong gown thanks to the sheer embellished bodice and floor length hem. "The Woman You Love" singer straightened out her red tipped tresses for a look we can actually deal with. And her man looked pretty dapper himself.
The twosome were last spotted (publicly) ringing in the 2011 new year together...and getting extra frisky with it we might add. Rumors swirled the following May that they had broken up based on a "We Broke Ip" tweet from Ashanti--but it was discovered she was actually joking about a statue she got attached to during her travels.
Less is more always works for Ashanti. Without a face full of over-done makeup and spider lashes and big curls with too many colors, she looks chic and pretty for the occasion.
Ashanti posed it up with a slicked back Solange Knowles who rocked all-white for the big Gala.
And so did Nelly and the COO of DKMS Americas Katharina Harf.
This extra dramatic gown is so Solange. The ivory Stéphane Rolland Spring 2012 gown swept the carpet with a long train and a striking gold plate at the waist. I adore the look--high fashion taken straight to the red carpet and the minimal makeup actually adds to the fashion factor for me.
Solo also snapped some flicks with the honoree of the night, Heidi Klum, who rocked a pale blue Temperley London Spring 2012 dress with a central split and plunging neckline.
And cutie newcomer Elle Varner made her way to the gala:
The "Refill" singer kept her usual fun loving look of a pink 3/4 dress with gold and light pink designs down the middle. Wish she would have opted for a fun-loving gown for this occasion, but she's a newbie. She'll get it....
