Last night the ESPY’s went down and it was epic, per usual. The ESPY’s are basically the Grammy’s of sports. Last night our favorite athletes and their wives slayed the red carpet last night. Let’s not waste any time with the small talk and get started.
Ayesha Curry gave us body last night in a maroon lace, high-low dress and nude pumps, while her hubby Steph Curry wore a navy blue velvet blazer.
Actress Gabrielle Union slayed in a long-sleeve, black lace, see-through August Getty gown with bodysuit underneath with her boo thang Dwayne Wade.
Newlyweds Ciara and Russell Wilson made their first red carpet appearance since they tied the knot about two weeks ago. Ciara wore a baby pink Roberto Cavalli gown with a sequin bodice with a plunging neckline.
Lindsey Vonn looked amazing and chic. She sported a Michael Costello jumpsuit with sequin pants and black cape.
Jordan Clarkson from the LA Laker cleaned up really nice last night in pin striped suit. I think I have a small crush on him.

If you did not watch the Hip Hop Honors last night, then you were hiding under a rock. Last Vh1 honored Queen Latifah, Salt-n-Pepa and Spinderella, Missy Elliot, and Lil Kim after a six-year hiatus. The show was completely epic, and one of the most epic moments was the Lil Kim tribute. Lil Kim celebrated her 42nd birthday being honored as one of the hottest females MC’s in the game with raunchy lyrics and risk taking style. Dej Loaf and Lil Mama performed “Crush On You” wearing similar looks from the colorful video. Teyanna Taylor was the highlight of the show as she performed “No Time” wearing a leopard bikini and leopard cover up with red feathers. She was then joined by French Montana and the The Lox for “All About the Benjamin’s” wearing a black double split dress with blonde wig and black boots. I knew something was up when Teyanna Taylor walked the red carpet with a curly yellow wig. Teyanna really studied Lil Kim’s mannerisms, looks, personality, and performance style. She was so lit that when the performance was over she through that wig off honey and still slayed. There was also a fashion show featuring supermodels Winnie Harlow and Jessica White.

There are so many myths that people believe about fashion that is just completely absurd. The key, is that some of our fellow fashionista are able to manage. Here are some helpful habits and tricks to help you look polished and confident. It’s not about having a bunch of clothes or paying your rent money on a pair of Giuseppe’s. It all starts with you and what you have at home. Allow me to help you.
- Plan your outfit the night before. This is just essential to everyday life. This gives you time to be creative and put different things together to create a completely new outfit.

Everyone who knows me is aware of my unconditional love for Beyoncé, I am a loyal fan. Last night she blew me away and gave me my entire life when she surprised us at the 2016 BET Awards when she opened the show performing her powerful hit “Freedom” with one of the greatest rappers, Kendrick Lamar. Throughout the week there were speculations on whether she would attend the show or not, but on the red carpet her Formation dancers shut it down making a grand entrance to the show, which left everyone lit with anticipation. The Queen wore a black lace leotard with fringe sleeves, and braids paying tribute to her African roots. The last time we saw Beyoncé at the BET Awards was in 2012 where she did not perform, but she did win awards with her hubby, Jay-Z. That last time she was physically on the BET stage was in 2009. Let’s take a look at her past BET Awards performance looks.
Here is Beyoncé in 2003 in her first solo performance on the BET stage performing “Crazy in Love” with her boo Jay.
Beyoncé showed us she was all woman in her final BET performance with Destiny’s Child wearing a neutral tone dress hugging her curves as Terrence Howard was receiving his life.
In 2006 she performed Déjà vu as the show opener wearing a silver two piece and Diana Ross hair.
She performed “Get Me Bodied” in 2007 wearing a two-piece gold metal outfit like a robot.
Beyoncé in 2009 performing “Broken-Hearted Girl” wearing a white leotard and wired skirt and veil.
