Kickin' It: Sean John Empress Launch in the Hamptons

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw me tweeting yesterday about my day trip to the Hamptons. I had the pleasure of attending an exclusive press preview in Southampton at Diddy's Ciroc Cabana Club for the launch of Sean John's newest fragrance EMPRESS.

To commemorate the launch and to introduce their very own spokesperson, R&B superstar Kelly Rowland was on the premises to talk about her love for the new fragrance and her new album!

Kelly absolutely looked like royalty in this purple look with gold accessories. Just gorge!

While there, she chatted a bit about how the fragrance is meant to empower women and how it wasn't until recently that she really came into her own and felt like she could "have it all".

Aside from getting to see Kelly, I had a blast chatting it up and partying, and swimming with the other editors and bloggers. Above is a pick of me with Jessica of Glamazons Blog lounging poolside, and below on the Ciroc carpet.

We were treated to yummy drinks courtesy Ciroc and manicures/massages courtesy the lovely folks at Sean John. 

 Per usual, I snapped street chic shots of the lovely ladies at the event.
 Above on the left is Asia of All Things Fabulous 101 rocking a super chic blazer and skirt combo with glitter Louboutin pumps! In the middle is PR gal Stephanie of Blueflame PR who looks amaze in that neon dress. On the right is another Blueflame PR gal you might recognize as Whitney of America's Next Top Model Season 8.

And the pool was Ciroc branded - how cool is that?

Above, Claire of The Fashion Bomb and celebrity blogger Micah Jesse party it up poolside.

I had a blast! Special thanks to the folks at Sean John. The fragrance smells amazing so I'd highly recommend you take a sniff once it hits stores on August 5th.

Below is a video including Kelly Rowland's explanation of her new album Here I Am and what it means to be an Empress:
