Celebrity choreographer turned music mogul Devyne Stephens held his annual Christmas bash on Tuesday night here in Atlanta.

Celebs such as R&B Diva Monica, musicians Jermaine Dupri, Akon, B. Cox, rapper Yung Joc and Mayor Kasim Reed turned out. And, of course celebrity photographer Prince Williams of ATLPICS.net was there to capture all the excitement!

The $50,000 extravaganza included Las Vegas style production, show girls and dance routines worthy of Broadway.


Stephens went all out this year giving $300,000 to a local charity.

    Monica looks lovely!

  • missy

    I think i'm the only one who doesn't like that hair on Monica?... :shrugs: her dress is fab ...Everyone else gets a no comment :coffee:

  • AllNYC

    Monica looks stunning in that dress. Red is definitely her color!
    I hate when folks think they are too good for the dress code, Akon.

  • laterthannever

  • Daisy

    I just knew TalkingwithTami would post since she attended the event last night

    I have a gfriend that use to date Devyne.

    @Sponge :lol: I think DC has more blacks than the A as it is called Choc city or it use to be!

    Monica you get a WORK BISH :clap:

  • SouthernPrincess

    Monica looks great so does Young Joc, he cleans up well
    If Devyne sneeze the buttons on his suit is gonna pop.
    Something doesn't sit well with me about ATL's new mayor. I hope to be proven wrong!

  • Anna

    Monica looks beautiful, red is her color and I love her hair. Why are Devynes pants tight and his jacket arms so short, is that why he put the leather gloves on? :lol:
    I guess the Black Santa got stuck in traffic. Everyone looks nice.
    Great pics Prince Williams, everyone looked like they had fun.

  • miss gia

    I LOVE ME some monica. Thats a bad ass bish, dressing wise. I hate to say, but as talented as she is, where is her music ? She supposedly always has something coming out, but I dont hear about it ?! Also, that ghetto hair is not the business. Mo would have been your IDEAL woman had that been an up-do or even her short-do.

    MONICA, WE LOVE YOU, START PUTTING HITS OUT, YOU ARE TALENTED AND WE KNOW YO CAN DO IT!

  • pointhimout

    Monica killed it. Looking good mama. What color doesn't look good on her? TEAM MONICA in 2010 too.

    Devyne...i've always known him to be a choreographer. I know SR constantly refers to him as a music mogul, yet I must be the only one who dont anything about any acts he has produced, songs he has written, etc. No fan of JD's but i'm familiar with his resume, as I am puffy and russell, etc. Why are we referring to Devyne as a music mogul? I remember some coming out party for his record label or something...who are the acts, etc. I really don't know.

  • pointhimout

    Kasim....I guess. I'm not impressed with him either. And why does he always looking pigeon toed and frumpy??? Are we at a point in life now where the politicians want to be just as famous as the artists.

    LOL at "is atl all black?" Far from it, trust me.

  • va_shawty

    Monica looks really nice. Love the dress and the hair!

  • netta0281

    @miss gia Says: Monica do have news music coming out and if you watch the show u can hear them and as far as her hair style i dont think its ghetto

  • mistarie

    Monica looks FABULOUS!!!!!! *In my BEST Rupaul voice* You'd better work Bytch!!!!!!!!!

    Devyne...I won't even go there with you today, but I must say...How you doin'?

    Jermaine...Just because you have money, does not mean you can just show up looking any kind of way. Was it so hard for you to complete the suit? Damn!!!!!!

    Who else was there? :shrug:

  • Necelove

    Monica's hair really looks cute like this. I like her switch up. Frank Ski lookin sporty. Merry Christmas SR family. Good Nite!

  • leat

  • Leesa
