When friends slay together!
Besties Kelly Rowland and LaLa Anthony having been hanging out and catching up all weekend, hitting up several events together.
Last night, both ladies served some glamorous looks at the 24th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing Party held at The City of West Hollywood Park.
The gorgeousness that is Kelly Rowland wowed in silver plunging long sleeve Laquan Smith gown paired with Manolo Blanik shoes and Lorraine Scwhartz jewels. Kellz gave us some much life in this sparkly number. With her hair slicked back and a smoldering face beat, chick slayed one hot look.
By the way, Kelly is gearing up for the premiere of the BET singing competition show “Chasing Destiny.” It’s expected to premiere on April 5th. If you missed, you can check out the first look at the upcoming show HERE.
Actress/author LaLa Anthony looked amazing in a black high slit gown. Werk!
Grammy Award winning singer Mariah Carey also opted for a LBD with a slit. The R&B songtress kept her look simple, but she rocked plenty of jewels (including her massive 35-carat engagement ring) to up the glam factor.
MiMi will be returning to her Las Vegas residency for her “#1 to Infinity” concert series in June.
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore made she sure was in the mix for the Oscar festivities. She struck a pose in a printed LSO Designs dress, Azzedine Alaïa shoes and a Chanel clutch.
Actor and Broadway star Taye Diggs and model girlfriend Amanza Smith Brown were all smiles on the carpet. Taye recently wrapped up filming a new comedy/musical titled One Shot.
Hunger Games star Evan Ross and his wife Ashlee Simpson Ross enjoyed a cutesy date night leaving little Jagger Snow at home. Baby Jagger will be turning 1 this summer. Time is flying.
Formula 1 racecar driver Lewis Hamilton and model Hailey Baldwin hit the scene together. Hmm…
Earth, Wind & Fire members Verdine White, along with his wife Shelly Clark, and lead singer Philip Bailey with his wife/background vocalist Krystal Bailey, came out to party it up.
Kelly & LaLa snapped a FAB flick together.
Hip Hop mogul Russell Simmons and “black•ish” star Anthony Anderson were looking dapper in their suits.
Meanwhile, MiMi was busy snapping selfies and chopping it up with TV personality Kelly Osbourne.
And then she snapped it up with R&B sensation Brandy.
At another viewing party….
“RHOA” star NeNe Leakes hosted an exclusive Oscars viewing party at Samsung 837 in NYC’s Meatpacking District. The “Fashion Police” judge rocked a black feathered Pedram Couture dress and Giuseppe Zannoti shoes and bracelet.
During the show, NeNe hopped on the mic to share her thoughts on the red carpet fashions and toasted the award winners.
At another Oscars viewing event…
After being honored at the Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon, “black•ish” star Tracee Ellis Ross was back on the scene for the post-Oscar fun. She popped up at the Mercedes Benz and African American Film Critics Association Oscar Viewing Party in a long sleeve Thai Nguyen Atelier dress with a lace bra underneath. Are we feelin’ it?
Tracee’s “black•ish” co-star Anthony Anderson was also on the scene as he made his rounds to several parties last night.
After hitting up a pre-Oscar event with his adorable daughter Annalise Bishop, actor/singer/comedian Jamie Foxx came out for some adult fun.
Tracee and Jamie linked up for a photo-op.
“Castle” actress Tamala Jones stepped out in a white lace jumpsuit to toast it up at the party. Not one of our favorite looks, but she’s still fab.
Chi-raq star Wesley Snipes was in the mix and was spotted dapping up Jamie.
Ok Vanessa Bell Calloway! The “Shameless” actress showed off her stems in a pearl mini dress. She has two new movies coming down the pipeline, The Bounce Back and biopic The Miki Howard Story (June 1st). She’s also currently filming a new television series “Saints & Sinners.”
Legendary supermodel Beverly Johnson looked gorgeous as ever in a shimmery charcoal gray gown.
And Kenya continued making her rounds, nabbing a flick with Jamie.
