Jill Scott, Queen Latifah, Keri Hilson & More GET FAB For STEEL MAGNOLIAS Premiere

We're totally excited for this Sunday's Lifetime premiere of the all-black remake of Steel Magnolias.  And the cast of stars hit up the Paris Theater in New York City last night for their big premiere party.


Peep pics of the fab folks inside....

The cast of Lifeftime's Steel Magnolias--Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye, Phylicia Rashad, Queen Latifah, Jill Scott and Condola Rashad--made a stunning appearance on their premiere party red carpet last night.  And are walking proof that black don't (and never will) crack.

The two youngins of the cast, Condola and Adepero, had some fun with their male co-stars Tory Kittles & Justin Martin.

Condola's dad--sports journalist Ahmad Rashad--was there to support his & Phylicia's fab daughter.

Star Jill Scott rocked a gold sequin dress and her natural hair for a beautiful look.  She posed it up with the movie's director Kenny Leon, who also directed Alicia Keys' Broadway play Stick Fly (which also happened to star Condola Rashad).

Such a gorgeous look for Jilly.

Star Alfre Woodard hit the carpet with her screenwriter husband Roderick Spencer.  Alfre recently revealed on "The View" that she was thankful this project came along.  Now that her 18-year-old daughter has moved out, she needed some sisterhood after becoming an empty-nester..

Phylicia looked regal as usual and posed with Executive VP of programming for Lifetime Networks, Rob Sharenow.

Pretty girl Keri Hilson came out to support in a colorful long sleeved mini dress.

Star Queen Latifah kept it demure in an all black look.  And she brought her fab mom along as her date.

Star Adepero Oduye hit the carpet looking pretty in a white gown and petal flower heels.

WNBA baller Cappie Pondexter made her way to the carpet.

And over at the afterparty:

Keri & Jill snapped pics with the backdrops.  Nice.

Speaking of Jilly from Philly, she stopped by VH1's "Big Morning Buzz" this AM to reveal her two new music projects she's working on.  Plus what it was like working with this ridiculously talented cast.

With all the PRESS &

With all the PRESS & PROMOTING the cast is doing for the movie, you would think it was coming out in THEATERS! I bet Tyle Perry is going to TRY to turn this into another one of his FAILED sitcoms!

This is Bad to have to make

This is Bad to have to make over Steele Magnolias! For Why! Where is the original material out there! Sparkle now this movie. Come on! Keri Hilson is a pretty girl but someone needs to give her a make-over from head to toe. I wish she had Rih's style and swagg!

I don't thinks Queens mom is

I don't thinks Queens mom is sick i think its the face powder - too light. Jilly looks good! I love the shoes Phylicia is divorced from Ahmad has been for years. I think he may be on the other team now. Condola had to be related to someone...but i digress.... Keri yeah so on point!!

I think it's waaay more than

I think it's waaay more than face powder. She has lost so much weight and looks a little feeble...but, I am basing this on her appearance on Living Single which first aired 19 years ago! So maybe she is simply getting older...I pray.
