Monday night at the Ziegfeld Theater in NYC, your favorite stars' fave stars came out to celebrate one of the biggest movies of the year, Lee Daniels' The Butler.  Check out the A-listers who sparkled down the carpet and those always make a fab appearance, inside...


It's Lady O!  After debuting her MAJORLY BIG HAIR issue of Oprah Magazine on Monday, she showed up with her own big curls and a custom sequined THEIA cocktail dress for her big premiere for Lee Daniels' The Butler.

The reps from THEIA tell us her dress was fit and altered just hours before the premiere. THEIA's Creative Director, Don O'Neill, had the pleasure of meeting her for the first time. Nice.

Fantasia brought out the black and gold and metallic leopard pumps.  Not our fave look for her since we noticed she stepped her fashion game up recently and expected a sexy chic look.  But we can appreciate the risk taking....

I agree that Keisha looks

I agree that Keisha looks unhealthy. Yaya is gorgeous! As for Oprah I can not get past the $2 million she's giving Lindsay Lohan for an 8 part interview series. Like really? That's a slap in the face to Iyanla and everyone else that has a show on the OWN Network.

Is someone going to

Is someone going to acknowledge what's going on with Forest's wife? She either has some serious health condition going on or she's developed an eating disorder, and I'm inclined to think it's the latter.
