2012 ANGEL BALL COUPLES: Kim & Kanye, Ashanti & Nelly, Solange & Miss Tina & More GET FAB For The Cause!

​ ​ ​ ​

Kanye West & his girlfriend Kim K. are back from their trip to Italy.  And their first stop as soon as they got back into the states tonight was the 2012 Angel Ball held at Cipriani Wall Street.


Check out Kim & Kanye hobnobbing it up with Ashanti & Nelly, Solange & her mom Tina inside...

It's that time of the year when celebs step out in full force for Denise Rich's Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research. The Foundation funds medical research for prevention and treatment of Lymphoma, Leukemia and related cancers.  And plenty of your faves were on hand to support the cause of the 16th annual Ball.

In a stunning cobalt blue gown with two slits and a pair of sky high black ankle strapped Thierry Mugler heels (yes we'll admit that we finally like one of Kanye's picks) Kim K. stepped out of Kanye's Soho apartment with her boo Monday night to hit the event.  And Kanye, looking dapper in something else other than leather pants, put on his best camera ready face:

Looks like Kim's been offering 'Ye some tips and practicing red carpet poses with him in the mirror:


Ashanti put on a sexy sparkly black dress with a thigh high slit as she hit the carpet with her man Nelly.

Gorgeous look for Ashanti.  And we're loving the suspenders on Nelly.

The couples snapped a pic with Smokey Robinson (who performed) and his wife Frances.

Angela Simmons looked great in a deep pink one shoulder gown with a wrapped slit.  And she accessorized with cobalt blue accessories. 

Gorgeous look.

Angela and Kim posed it up with Star Jones.

Solange & Tina Knowles put on their chicest prints for the evening.

And Mama Tina's face is looking snatched to the lords of Botox.  Not mad.  She looks fab these days.

The Knowles gals posed with Denise Rich.

Loving this gold printed gown full of sheen.

And Solange's look is, of course, our fave of the night.  It from Badgley Mischka's Fall 2012 collection.

The metallic geometric printed gown flaunted her cleavage and slim curves effortlessly.  And the gold & white clutch set off the look perfectly.


Tiki Barber was there with his new wife Traci Lynn

Estelle hit the event in an interesting dress.  Feathers and animal print?

Wendy Williams kept it demure with a black own with a thigh high slit.

And Russell Simmons brought his chick of the moment.

For the most part, everyone

For the most part, everyone looks nice. Ashanti and Solange are absolutely gorgeous! Finally Solange looks normally elegant and sexy. Defintely the best dressed of the night! Love Kim's color of the dress, not too much her hair, but for some reason she looks a bit frumpty from the waist down in this dress. None the less, she still looks nice. Nelly does look like he is on another level with his eyes bucked tho. lol...Love the cause. Good look.

Kanye looks like he is saying

Kanye looks like he is saying in his head as he is looking down at Kim, " I cant wait to try those on later. I think I look better in them anyway". LMBO.

Nelly looks like he just got

Nelly looks like he just got caught doing some sneaky ish in that first photo. Kim tries too much and it's becoming a bit annoying. Her hair looks a mess. Kanye, I just don't know about him anymore. He is, however, dressed better than his woman. Ashanti is making that Mr. T, "I PITTY THE FOOL" face in the 10th photo. Angela looks pretty. Very fresh faced. Russell is Russell. Solange looks like she gave up that natural stuff and processed her hair. Either that or it's just flat ironed. She doesn't know what she wants to do anymore. I appreciated her natural, but she looks nice nonetheless. Her mother is a mess. The photo where she's sitting down and not smiling, isn't too bad. She looks stiff as hell though. What the hell kind of pose is she doing in that photo with Denise Rich? She's trying too hard. Her face is tight as hell and it looks like it hurts to smile. LOL! That is sad. Nothing gorgeous about that one. Just stop! Denise Rich looks nice and is embracing her age and not effing up herself with fillers, botox, surgery and whatnot, unlike Tina. Wendy looks nice. Estelle looks uncomfortable as IDK what. It looks as if someone forced her to put on a dress and go to this event, Look at how awkward she looks. Her expression. LMAO!!

Well Hallelujah!! ~ Kim has returned to color!! Whoever's been styling her these past months should be FIRED!! Kim ~ Amber Rose you are Not ~ Amber can make even Reeboks look sexy. STOP wearing things Kanye wishes he could wear in public. The last straw was that potato a$$ out for lunch. No bueno ~

Can Kanye just go into hiding, become a recluse...he's not a good match for Kim K...I'm not a fan of Kim, but she doesn't need to be with Kanye...his aura just says confused...there's something not right with him. he's not a happy man...

I don't know what the hell

I don't know what the hell Tasha smokin, talking about "Yes we'll admit that we finally like one of Kanye's picks". UHHHH NUH..... Speak for yourself Boo. That dress is hideous and the fitting is just all kinds of wrong. Anywho.... I wonder did that vagabond Solange relax her hair or is it just flat ironed. Either way, I'm glad she's giving us a break from them Florence from the Jeffersons ass hairdos, because I feel that it was so forced. Whatever.......
