YBF celebs made their way to Elton John’s viewing of this year’s Oscars last night. And it brought out Lil Kim, Keke Palmer, Meagan Good, Toni Braxton and many more. Following the Academy Awards, Common, Oprah, Kevin Hart, Eddie Murphy and more hit up the Governors Ball. Also, Tracee Ellis Ross and a few other attended a viewing party as well. Peep the pics inside…
Rap queen Lil Kim took a night off from motherhood to enjoy the Oscars festivities going on in Hollywood. The new mom trekked it to Elton John’s 23rd Annual AIDS Foundation viewing Oscar party in L.A.
The Brooklyn-bred raptress worked a flowy pale pink gown with gold embellishments. Are we feelin’ it?
Round of applause for this uber glam YBF chick! Keke Palmer served some winter white fabness in a Stella McCartney gown, strappy Christian Louboutin heels, accessorizing with Henri J. Sillam & Swarovski jewels.
Work Keke! The YBF actress is gearing up to start filming for the horror-comedy anthology television series “Scream Queens.”
R&B songstress Toni Braxton was her usual sexy self on the carpet styling in a Shady Zeineldine couture gown. Ms. Braxton is fresh off a Grammy high after winning a Grammy Award for Best R&B Album with Babyface for their joint album Love, Marriage & Divorce. She looks great!
“Instant Mom” actress Tia Mowry Hardrict and her husband/American Sniper star Cory Hardrict hit the party in all black.
TLAM 2 star Meagan Good and her handsome husband DeVon Franklin made a hot looking couple on the carpet.
“True Blood” star Jurnee Smollett-Bell and her hubby Josiah Bell looked nice on the carpet.
Jurnie’s brother and “Empire” star Jussie Smollett cleaned up nice for the party.
“Big Bang Theory” star Regina King kept it funky and fresh with her long sleeve printed gown. She was one of the honorees during this year’s Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon a few days ago.
Hip Hop mogul Russell Simmons was all smiles rocking his Adidas sneakers.
HLN correspondent Rocsi Diaz (in a Dennis Basso gown) caught up with the Queen Bee on the carpet.
Best Man star Taye Diggs and his girlfriend Amanza Smith Brown were all wrapped up in love. We wonder how it was watching his soon-to-be ex-wife Idina Menzel on the stage. He likely had no qualms about it being that he and Idina seem to be handling their divorce without any hiccups.
“Vampire Diaries” star Kat Graham was all about showing cleavage in a black Michael Costello gown, Chelsea Paris and Neil Lane jewelry.
And musician Nile Rodgers was in the mix.
At another party…
After the show is the after party! Oscar winner Common linked up with Questlove, Akiva Schaffer and Andy Samberg of “The Lonely Island” for some laughs and good times during the Oscar’s Governors Ball at the Hollywood & Highland Center.
Something was either really funny or everyone was just excited about the Chi-town rapper’s win!
Media mogul Oprah was spotted carrying around the LEGO Oscar she received during the “Everything Is Awesome” performance by Tegan and Sara.
Kevin Hart’s fiancee Eniko Parrish looked on as Kevin got silly. Typical Kevin antics….
SELMA star David Oyelowo also hit the Governors Ball scene.
And so did Eddie Murphy and his girlfriend Paige Butcher.
At another after party….
“blackish” star Tracee Ellis Ross had her natural tresses poppin’ on the red carpet at the Mercedes-Benz USA and African American Film Critics Association Oscars viewing party last night.
Upcoming “Scream Queens” star Niecy Nash sparkled in a black strapless number.
Legendary singer Natalie Cole posed it up alonside Star Jones showing off in all red.
“Being Mary Jane” star Raven Goodwin was in the mix.
“Instant Mom” star Sheryl Lee Ralph also opted for a red hot look.
And so did iconic model Beverly Johnson.
Actresses Lynn Whitfield and Edwina Findley were all smiles during the viewing party. Lynn is gearing up to star on TV One’s original horror film franchise Fear Files, joining Columbus Short and Erica Hubbard.
