Fierce or Foolish: Galas, Darling

This past weekend was chock full of galas and celebrity sightings, a sure sign of the spring season. Here are some notable red carpet flicks from the weekend:

Common Ground Foundation Gala

Keke Palmer
It-girl Keke Palmer was honored this weekend at Common's first annual Common Ground Foundation Gala as a "Woman of Excellence". She graced the red carpet in a silk ruffled mini dress and nude heels.

Silver Rose Awards Gala

 The Silver Rose Awards Gala, honoring Halle Berry's "What Can A Little Love Do?" program was held in Beverly Hills over the weekend. Both Halle and my girl Wendy Raquel Robinson came decked in hot pink body con dresses. 

Tatyana Ali showed up in a white studded-sleeve dress and black heels.

 Christina Milian was a hot mama in a lavender wrap dress and T-strap heels. How cute is her baby girl?

 Taraji P. Henson graced the carpet in an allover nude look; a fitted dress and platform slingbacks.

Who was fierce? Who was foolish? Soundoff below!

P.S. On the topic of "galas, darling", a huge shoutout to famed blogger Gala Darling for linking to my piece on the #UPLIFT Challenge. The reception to my challenge has been overwhelmingly positive and I love you all for spreading the word!
Pin It!


  1. Taraji always kills it! Everyone looks hot. For Keke I would suggest not wearing the full outfit of purple. Mix the top with a pencil skirt. And for Christina I would've worn different shoes, not all purple.

  2. I love the purple dress! Beautiful color!

  3. I thought Keke's outfit was a little ill-fitting, but the color was great. Christina Milian looks FAB as well as Halle, Taraji... I didn't care for Tatiana's dress at all.
