LaLa Anthony is clearly not letting any of the rumors about her marriage get her down.  Because the reality starlet looked gorgeous on last night's red carpet at the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball.  She hosted the event alongside Terrence J.  


We've got the pics of all the celebs who came out to celebrate President Obama's second term...

In a Lillie Rubin nude and black deep V cut beaded gown and Jimmy Choo shoes, LaLa kept it sexy for the Black Tie affair at DC's Harman Center last night.  She told us on the carpet, "I'm just so honored and happy to be here. [Co-host] Terrence is my brother. And tomorrow, being a part of the official Ball, will be incredible."

La & Terrence looked great as the hosts for the event, which honors members of the hip hop community who are doing great things in their own communities.

Angela Simmons rocked an eye popping black sequined bust-cut out dress by Albanian designer Devushka.

And we can't even be mad at her for flaunting that killer bod.  Many couldn't pull this look off but it works for her personality.

La & Ange kicked it with model Chanel inside the Ball.

By the way, did you know Dr. Ben has 8 kids--4 boys and 4 girls?

2 Chainz threw on his suit to receive the Street Soldier Award for his work in getting former felons and minorities to register to vote. Too bad he got into a slight scuffle at the afterparty with a random party goer.

Oh Tyson Beckford.  We get that you wanted to color coordinate with your model girlfriend Shaninah in her Garcia dress.  But this ish is just loud.

And YoYo and Smooth gave a tribute to Lyte for her Lifetime Achievement Award.   And, of course, was the livest performance of the night.

Fab times all around.  If you missed our LIVE from the scene tweets from last night, check 'em here.

Lil Mama need to change her name to Lil GRANDMAMA!! She looks every bit of 65 on the edge of retirement! I'ma need Marhsa Ambrosious to stick to one weave texture/color at a time. She got a bit of black kinky yaki mixed in wit some wet and wavy brown blend at the bottom looking like her natural hair got caught in a sauna! And I wonder how many of them rappers and models there Lala done ATE! You know her and her lesbo cousin trying to turn out all of black female Hollywood! Watch out Chanel sweetie!

It's truly unfortunate that

It's truly unfortunate that Lala and Angela Simmons thought it was appropriate to put their lady lumps on parade at an Inaugural Ball. There is a time and a place for extreme cleavage display but this was not one of them.

C'mon Angella, that dress was too tacky, Tyson Beckford looked like the silly coon he is. That mess in the brown watchumacallit was unspeakable. Lala looked great, Im not a fan of the young looking suits all these guys have been sporting but Im sure Thom Browne is happy.

The females that looked nice

The females that looked nice were Lyte, Angie Simmons and Yoyo from the waist up. The rest left me in confusion. Tyson Beckford need to take that country getup back to the hood mall store where he bought it. He can drag all the models he wants, I still think he is sugary.

Lala's boobage is really

Lala's boobage is really unnecessary, Angela's dress could've went without that oversized hole, especially with that non matching bra. Terrence's jacket is super young and Smooth leaves me searching for words and the fact that it was captured on camera means that she has to live with that mistake FOREVER..... So DEVASTATING!!!!.
