EVENT FAB: Solange, Tika Sumpter, Carmelo, Sanaa, Taraji, Amar'e, & More Get FAB In The City

​ ​ ​ ​

 

Our fave YBF chicks hit up the Grand Opening of Dream Downtown, PH-D Rooftop Lounge and Marble Lane Restaurant last night in NYC.  We've got pics of Tika Sumpter, Solange, Taraji, & Sanaa looking their usual gorgeous selves, plus other celebs partying it up, when you read on....

 

YBF indeed!  Somebody in this piece needs to write a book on getting and staying fab.  Gorgeous actresses Taraji Henson--who's rocking some new straight long locks--Sanaa Lathan, and Tika Sumpter all partied it up at the Dream Downtown opening.  Loving all the looks.  Even Taraji's floral uber short shorts.

Tika will be hosting the BET Awards 2011 red carpet for BET.com next weekend.  And shes also in the studio working on some music, which she describes as "feel good,fun music, pop."  Nice!

Solange Knowles chatted it up with "Platinum Hit" host Kara DioGuardi

Loves those curls.  And this whole green pants and white blouse look.

And she hit the 1's and 2's of course.

And the fellas--Knick ballers Amar'e Stoudamire and Carmelo Anthony and rapper Fabolous--all partied it up.

Model Tyson Beckford made an appearance with NFLer Devin Thomas as well.

Then celebs headed over to the Urban Zen Center for the 3rd Annual Bent On Learning Benefit:

Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Stern, designer Stacey Bendet of Alice+Olivia, and Russell Simmons were there to celebrate.

And Sanaa and Tika decided to hit up this good cause as well last night:

Lovely.

Really? a new nose. You are such a hater. I hope she keeps it the way it is. Too many of our black entertainers have gotten rhinoplasty. Embrace your features.

Disgusting people like you

Disgusting people like you are the reason why racism is alive and well. My nose is similar to Tika and it fits my face perfectly just like Tika's nose fits her face. She is a BLACK woman with awesome features. I think you need CHANGE your sick attitude and maybe get an education because judging from your ignorant comment, its clear you are lacking one.

Tika is an absolute dream

Tika is an absolute dream come true: she's dark skin, stunning and well-dressed (even if I don't like what she is wearing). Now only if she could step her actin' game up... xoxo GG. Taraji just looks inappropriate. The outfit that she's wearing would have been best suited for an Olsen, a tiny, waif-like young adult, not a mother of a certain age and figure. Sanaa is (as always) nothing to write home about, in terms of personal style. However, she is beautiful (as always). Has anyone else noticed Solange's use of giant natural hair wigs/weaves? If she's all about natural hair and representing for the natural girls of Carol's Daughter, then why does she continue to wear these massive natural weave fros? Why not just wear her own, shorter, natural hair? I don't get it. TheQueenofHearts

All the ladies look cute and dressed for their ages, except Taraji- I mean sure you have the figure, but you are over the age of 40 and shouldn't wear shorts that damn high...I mean cute, but not on you

Um what do they say, More is less? Come on sista you pushing 40 something. You don't need to look like a fast school girl who has to hike up her shorts as soon as she leaves her mommas house. You look good we all see you but dang whose son you trying to nab? ROAR LOL In other words trying a lil too hard. Other than that they all look lovely. I guess booty cheek is the new clevage.

They all look great.

They all look great. Solange's look is nice for her--but I hope she changes it up soon cuz she's starting to look like she's stuck in the 70's. Part of her appeal is her changing style. The other ladies look FAB. Black don't crack! :-)

OFF TOPIC: has anyone tried

OFF TOPIC: has anyone tried rx for brown skin? or cliniques darl spot remover? im a very light woman with some dark spots on my jawline from acne. any suggestions??????
anonymous's picture

This will take some time but

This will take some time but I highly recommend DermaE Scar gel. It is made from natural botanicals and panthenol, rather than many of the harsh chemicals on the market. Over a couple of months I used it and successfully got rid of acne scars and a waxing burn on my leg. I am about the same color as Thandie Newton and the leg burn was a crayon brown, the acne spots a little bit lighter

Save your money and go see a

Save your money and go see a dermatologist. I'm black but of a fairer skin tone and have ALWAYS had dark marks from my acne. RX for Brown Skin doesn't work for every browned skinned girl, and I can say the same about Clinique's Dark Spot Remover. I used both for months and saw little to no change. Finally went to see a dermatologist and he prescribed Retin-A. The prescription works better and you save time, and money otherwise spent on OTC products.

Retin A will take those right

Retin A will take those right off and will make your skin super smooth. Also, Ambi Even and Clear moisturizer and Scar Zone A (for Acne and has green tea) is great for removing spots.

I had the same issue with acne turning into dark spots. I've tried various skin care products without any results, but Cliniques skin care line is great. Definitley, use the Clinique Clinical Even Better its worth the $50.00 price tag. Also, use a facial mask twice a week to remove dead skin cells.
