Atlanta saw a star studded red carpet at last night’s 2013 Trumpet Awards, sponsored by Cadillac. YBF celebs like Fantasia, Eva Marcille, Tika Sumpter and more put on their Saturday best to impress the masses. And they didn’t disappoint (well, not everyone did). We’ve got the pics inside….
Photographer Paras Griffin caught celebs making their red carpet appearance at last night’s Trumpet Awards at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
And we’re pleasantly surprised to see Fantasia looking amazing in this Ralph Lauren stark white knee high slit column gown with a subtle neck cut out. And she paired it with white Giuseppe jeweled pumps. White is definitely her color as the singer accessorized with silver sparkling jewels on her wrist and on her earrings. Great look for her.
And while Fanny showed off her fresh curves, "R&B Divas" star Nicci Gilbert also showed up in a blue longsleeved satin-like gown for the ocassion.
Model and reality starlet Eva Marcille worked the carpet in a slinky black long sleeved gown:
Simple always works for her.
Tika Sumpter looked like a doll in her black gown with a leather bustier.
The rest of the R&B Divas were also in tow:
KeKe Wyatt and her husband Michael hit the carpet with Charlie Wilson.
Syleena Johnson and her husband Kiwane Garris looked nice.
And Monifa kept it colorful in her yellow satin dress and blue heels as she hit the carpet with girlfriend Terez.
Chaka Khan is still looking slim and trim as she matched the carpet in this red lace concoction.
"Big Rich Atlanta" star Sharlinda Parker kept it simple in a chocolate pleated dress. This wig though….
"The Game" actor Carl Payne hit the carpet on his preppy tip.
Former Xscape member Latocha Scott hit the carpet with her son’s father, who is also her manager, Rocky Bivens.
Not sure why Anthony Hamilton felt the need to rock this humungous man bag on the carpet. But yeah…
AJ Johnson was on the carpet showing off her tight bod.
And she posed it up with the host of the evening, The Haunted House star Essence Atkins. Essence’s co-host was Rickey Smiley.
The Browns love a good event don’t they? Tamela and David Mann hit the carpet for the festivities.
Tracy Mourning and hubby Alonzo Mourning hit the carpet. Tracy looks gorge these days.
Derek Luke and his wife Sophia made their way to the event. Not loving her look.
V103 host Big Tigger hit the carpet.
Actress Demetria McKinney looked fresh faced and fab in blue.
"Property Virgins" host and V-103 radio personaility Egypt Sherrod sparkled on the carpet with a champagne gown complete with a mesh one shoulder overlay.
