 photo FannyLookingGood_zps3ff43009.jpg

Atlanta saw a star studded red carpet at last night's 2013 Trumpet Awards, sponsored by Cadillac.  YBF celebs like Fantasia, Eva Marcille, Tika Sumpter and more put on their Saturday best to impress the masses.  And they didn't disappoint (well, not everyone did). We've got the pics inside....

Photographer Paras Griffin caught celebs making their red carpet appearance at last night's Trumpet Awards at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.

And we're pleasantly surprised to see Fantasia looking amazing in this Ralph Lauren stark white knee high slit column gown with a subtle neck cut out.  And she paired it with white Giuseppe jeweled pumps. White is definitely her color as the singer accessorized with silver sparkling jewels on her wrist and on her earrings.  Great look for her.

This is the best Ive seen

This is the best Ive seen Fantasia look in a minute (round of applause). If its a new stylist pls keep them Fanny. The Mournings make such a cute couple. I dont know what's going on with AJ's face it looks weird, & that dress didnt help matters any.

Wait a damn minute!

Wait a damn minute! Fantasia...is that YOU?! Nikki...is that YOU?! These two ladies have lost a lot of weight, brought sexy back, put it in a choke hold and shut the city DOWN!!! Bay-beh...Check yo' email!!! Oooh-wee! I love it! Gone, Fantasia, I ain't even mad!!! Damn, EVERYBODY in the pics on this mf'ing post looks GOOD! Why didn't I get the email that they'd be cuttin' up like this?! Wow! Roll Call. Tamela Mann...Damn, she looks fabulous AND amazing! Check. KeKe, Michael and Charlie...BOSS status...as always. Check. Chaka...Gone wiht the wind fabulous! She's just has that timeless beauty thing going on ALL THE DAMN TIME and she just gets better with time. Check. Monifa, that purple hair is even making the doves cry, baby...love it...but I'mma need for you to get straight. I ain't digging the lesbian lifestyle on you, darling...and I'mma need you to put your new CD on speed dial...love you! Check. Syleena...Syleena...Syleena...that dress and your new and improved figure is EVERYTHING and I'm so damn proud of you!!! Whoop! But I have never been feeling that husband of yours...he just doesn't fit. I love you, Syleena...love you! Check. Latosha (from Xcape)...love the look...come on with the new music and breathe some LIFE back into R & B since all of the other fine ladies of R & B seem to have a problem doing it...or perhaps their just too damn busy sucking dick...I don't know. Check. Anthony Hamilton, give me that briefcase. He always knows how to accessorize around his talented voice with the most basic, most simple things like those hats. He can never go wrong...love that damn briefcase. Check. AJ Johnson, I'mma need to do a damn drive-by on you and swipe your WHOLE damn swag. Damn, you make 40-something look so damn GOOD! She ALWAYS looks so damn good! Now THAT's what Young, Black and Fabulous LOOKS like! Love her! Check. I used to couldn't STAND Essence Atkins, but I'm truly digging her on "Are We There Yet". Check. Tamala and David Mann...Umph...love them to pieces...love 'em! Neither one of them can do NO wrong in my sight. Tamala looks amazing, she and David both have gotten in shape and they look GREAT! Her voice is heavenly and her talent is superb. Check. I always love the Mourning couple. They're such a lovely couple. Check. I'm mad at Egypt for having lost her way, having let herself go since she had that baby...or whatever happened in recent years. What happened, Boo? Anywho...I'mma give you a pass for old time sake since I've always liked you and you've been so humble and consistent over the years. Love you, but I'mma need you to do better with your outfits before you walk the carpet in the future or just avoid being seen altogether. Check. Dr. Perry...love you, Man. Check. Roland...No, Sir. Check. Everyone else...here's a pass. Lovely pics and looks like a great time all around.

Fantasia ratchet ass almost nailed it until she put that bird's nest on her head. Eva is ill-shaped and that dress is ill-fitted. The End!!! I'm not going through all of those people.
