The Secret Life Of Bees Hollywood Premiere

​ ​ ​ ​

The cast of The Secret Life of Bees and other YBF folks showed up to the Hollywood premiere of the movie last night: Co-stars Sophie Okonedo and Alicia Keys were M.I.A. but lots of other fab folks came out: Jada Pinkett Smith, who is a producer of this movie, and her hubby Will showed up looking fab as usual. So did Jenny Hudson and Queen Latifah. BFFs Nia Long and Sanaa Lathan looked cute. Jill Marie Jones is still killin' it.  Gorgeous look. And the fellas--co-stars Nate Parker and Tristan Wilde--looked pretty dapper as well. Lots more pics when you read the rest...

A much sleeker look for Jenny.  And I wonder if Punk bought her those earrings too.  Let me stop... The movie's director Gina Prince-Bythewood posed with her stars Tristan and Dakota. Jada rocked an interesting look.  I do want her to lose that wig though.  She's too fab for that. Ne-Yo was there and kicked it with Vanessa Williams. Tyrese made an appearance. Loving the black star power. Eva Marcille hit the carpet solo with her fine ass man Lance.  She's looking beautiful as usual. And so was Nia Long of course: Shondrella Avery and her husband hit the carpet.  Hmm.  I could have sworn they were brother and sister. A cute and flirty look for Ms. Lathan. Fun and fabulous times for all the YBF folks.  Loves it.

DeGuire/Williamson

The Randomness: 1.  For those of you having issues seeing the pics while at work, that is because your company's network is blocking photobucket.com.  Many companies are blocking that and any other types of social websites.  Sme even block TheYBF.com.  So I suggest either viewing at home, on your own personal laptop you bring to work (don't act like that's too crazy just to get your fix), talk to you IT people you're cool with, or view through your mobile phone which you can also use to leave comments.  Good luck!

not so sure about jada's

not so sure about jada's dress but hell i'm not a jada fan and rarely like her presentation. the dress went wrong at the top and yes, her hair is very upsetting. she looks like she gets teased in school with that hair. now her husband is a different story. always love for the fresh prince. ___________________________________________________________ i like nia's bangs. they fit her asian looks and so circa 1993 nia. ____________________________________________________________ jill marie jones and sanaa lathan are as beautiful as ever ___________________________________________________________

I'm not a fan of these Cruella Deville/Elvira dark lipstick either that the Queen & Eva have on but both of them still look good despite that. I always say the Queen cleans up good![/quote] Girl you are crazy. Dark/black lipstick is in, my friends! YSL has sold out![/quote] Love dark lipstick. Glad they're bringing back that old Hollywood glamour. Make up is fun--play it up! ----Vanessa Williams looks a mess - he tired hair, the Ross dress w/ mismatched leather belt. She needs a stylist stat! ---Tyrese & Big Willy are looking extra dapper and yummy. ---Queen & Jennifer Hudson look flawlessly sophisticated. Two thumbs up. ---Nia Long is underdressed for the occasion. I expect better from her. ---Trystan's a little cutie and he came correct in that suit. ---Nate Parker is too damn sexy, but he couldn't fixed that dent in his 'fro.

Eva always wear a lot of

Eva always wear a lot of makeup. The lipstick is because her lips are hella dark from so much smoking. When I saw her @ the airpot and another event she wore tons of makeup. You can see the bad acne she has on her lower cheek area. Sorry but this girl is average without that killer makeup artist. F'd up attitude a lot. Jada looks old as hell with that dress and hair. Vanessa looks good and I like JHud's shoes.

Jennifer and Queen's dresses

Jennifer and Queen's dresses were the business at this event. They both look great from head to toe. Not sure why Jada is rocking the bad wig or the ugly dress. She knows better than that. Sanaa should have accessorized a bit more.
