2016 Black Girls Rock Awards Wrap-up

On Friday(April 1st) the 2016 Black Girls Rock awards took place at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, NJ. To find out details about the organization, visit To see all of the red carpet looks, click HERE and continue below for the wrap-up. 

Teyonah Parris was a golden girl wearing a JANI KHOSLA long sleeve studded dress with a v-neckline and a back split. Her look was topped off with beautiful natural hairstyle by Kangue Styles, a red lip, DRUKKER earrings and shimmer STUART WETIZMAN 'Nudist' sandals. 

Kelly Rowland wore served up some cleavage in a BRANDON MAXWELL white long sleeve ankle length crepe jumpsuit with an banded waist and a seam detail. I like the jumpsuit but this doesn't work for me. First, it's just too much cleavage which takes away from her look and the pants and the seamed detail on the pants looks weird but that maybe because of how she is standing. LOUBOUTIN nude pumps, silver jewelry and puffy ponytail completed her look. 

Danai Gurira also wore a white jumpsuit. Her CUSHNIE ET PRE-FALL 2016 halter one-piece featured matching tie waist was styled with a blush pink clutch, gold sandals and a gold bracelet. Instead of adding a colored lip, Danai opted for a shiny lip which was offset with a smokey eye. 

Corinne Bailey Rae metallic color-block & feather halter dress which she paired with black ankle boots. I am not sure what the style direction was here but it doesn't work for. 

Monica was working her leg hard in a BALMAIN ensemble which featured a black long sleeve fishnet panel top and a printed emerald velvet crossover split maxi skirt. XIV KARATS jewelry, SOPHIA WEBSTER sandals and a flawless beauty look topped off her look. 

Naturi Naughton wore a CD GREENE yellow fitted dress with a shatter mirrored one long sleeve panel. I simply just don't like the dress. 

Jazmine Sullivan performed at the event and she hit the carper in a custom D. AUXILLY black long sleeve gown with a sheer tulle panel mermaid hem. She looks like she is suffocating in this dress but her beauty look is on point.

  1. I only like Danai Gurira's look. Kelly's would be nice too with less boobage.
    All others seen to have been dressed in Tackyland.
