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.
