    Michelle looks like an older/younger Sheree AND I like her dress.
    Work it Eve!
    I like Eva’s dress and shoes, thing is the dress is TOOOOOO short and the shoes could/should be paired with something else.
    Regina coulda ran a curler/roller/crimp through her hair or something.

    Other than that, they rocked it.

    Michelle looks like a drag queen to me…

    Regina is my girl but her age is beginning to show.

    Is that one of them there strippers with Neyo from the other night? :think:

    Holly is beautiful as always.

    Eve would be decent if she closed her mouth in that pic.

    Eva is a beautiful woman, but she has the body of a pre-pubescent boy. :shrugs:
