Urban One Honors held their 6th Annual star studded event at the Coca Cola Roxy, Atlanta, to honor and recognize black excellence.
It was the most famous celebrities who ever did it. It’s about the trailblazers and pioneers that have changed the world through their contributions to music, the arts and the media.
Grammy award winning singer, Mary J Blige was given her flowers Saturday evening as the Entertainment Icon Honoree recipient , while R&B singer Chlöe graciously took home the Generation Next Honoree award.
Matching the ‘Best in Black’ theme, the ‘No More Drama’ singer made quite an entrance in her black lava Gaurav Gupta sculpted gown from the brand’s “Shunya collection.”
Contrary to rocking black like MJB, the ‘Treat Me’ singer Chlöe glistened all evening in a tonal sequins and clear stone crystal embellished $1,598 retrofete ‘Haven’ dress . Her matching gloves made her look cohesive and radiant.
LeToya Lukkett, former Destiny Child star, looked stunning in a powdery pink Toni Maticevski gown with black Balenciaga thigh-high boots. Her pixie hairstyle and smokey eyes were flawless. And her formal accessories complemented her outfit.
Sheek, a Fashion Bomb Daily reporter who was at Urban One Honors had the chance to speak with Luckett. When Sheek asked Luckett about her first designer purchase, LeToya responded that it was most likely a ‘Gucci bag.’
Toya gave us goddess vibes with a yellow Bronx & Banco gown. It was covered by her head, had frayed edges, and featured a long train.
Comedian and Actress, B Simone’s gown also had a long train. The Wild ‘n Out star opted for a red custom London Couture leopard print asymmetrical gown with a high slit. We loved the red lips, china bangs and diamond jewels that oozed confidence.
Sheek interviewed Muni long on the red-carpet. Muni was full of praise for Fashion Bomb.
Long expressed is dressed in a geometric Emilio Pucci dress $1,810, which comes in baby blue and black.
“Fashion Bomb daily means to me a place where black people can show their flavor, their style and be appreciated for the fashion. Right? Because I love the fact that they break down the look, give me the price, give me where I can get it, and although sometimes I don’t want everyone to know where I got my stuff, I do appreciate being nosey and seeing where everyone else got their stuff from.”
Also making waves on the red carpet was singer Summer Walker who embodied a black Marilyn Monroe with her blonde curls and strapless Dolce & Gabbana lace gown. Her outfit was perfect for the occasion, and we loved her diamond Louboutin shoes.
Urban One Honors has some of our favourite looks, and we also love the evening elegance we saw on the Red Carpet. Fashion Week is just around the bend, and now that the award season has begun, it’s no surprise to see the fiercest looks in action.
Watch for the Urban One Honors premiere on Sunday. February 25, 2020 on TV One and CLEO TV.
