    Taraji's dress was all good until I saw that unnecessary "flair" ie. crystal flowers running down her crack. That ish was probably uncomfortable as hell to sit on

  • Marlika

    Aunty Mary been looking goodt & happy since divorcing that bum!! ??

    Wonder how much him got in the settlement? ? Welp what is was he better make it last forever. Doubt anyone would work with his fake producer behind anyhow.

  • n1kk1a

  • Rayscoty

    Too bad Taraji wasn't with Jussie Smollett. She could've heard what the attackers was thinking prior to the attack ..

  • Kanyade

    Everybody looks goodt. Love Kelendria's look and Ms. Cynthia keeps it nice and neat in all black.

  • Rayscoty

    Kendu sent that VOOO DOOO message out to Mary this morning .. Closed the reply on his IG..

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    MOST of the women look GOOD!

    That Jasmine Brand chick needs a stylist or glasses and a mirror.

    Cynthia Bailey looks like she gave her plastic surgeon a picture of Marlo and said she wants to look like her???

  • Pitty Patty

    Yes Gold Suit!

  • Pitty Patty

  • Renee26

    Taraji looks fab but whomever designed her gown is foolish to think women's boobs are supposed to be positioned that far apart.

  • BingBangBoom

    Okay! Where did Darrin pop up from.. Needs to lay off the black paint and Bigen..
    Grant hill knows he is Sexy but needs to lay off the Bigen or get brown/black not jet black.
    Also is the Albino still modeling or is he just a rough looking socialite?
    And Chile last night on Jimmy Kimmel Tracy said he wished to get hit by a Pepsi truck... smh people died man not everyone received 90 million dollars and lived to make a sick joke.

  • Kimocha

    I know Erykah always gotta be different and out there... But WTF is up with those boots?!... Those boots are a Big Hell NO!... I usually don't like Taraji's style... but I DO like her dress this time!... I love seeing Grant and Tamia still together and looking damn good!... And I wouldn't have even recognized Tamala Jones if I didn't see her name!...I haven't seen her in a long time and been wondering where she's been!... Good seeing her!... And of course Richard Roundtree (Shaft) is still pimpin!

  • BeUtFullSoul

  • tia

    I'll always love my Mary. But let's talk about Tamia and Grant tho. Very beautiful couple and Grant looking like a whole buffet. YES GAWD!!
    I see you Grant!

  • Yoni7

    Hi Taraji! I don't hate or love your dress. I would just have to do a lil bit rearranging and improvising on it.....starting with those hideous ornamental broach/earring looking thingy's going down the back of it.
    I am so loving Erykah's catsuit/thigh high boot ensemble. I love an ole nasty thigh high boot and some "fitted/printed/legging" pants.
    I like Mary's pants.
    Cynthia, you need ta', pick yo lacefront Baileyyyyy, because it's flat on one siiiiiiidde.

  • Yoni7

    But I like her boots for that occasion. I would wear them for the one time, one time....WITH a puffy sleeve top. Just because.

  • Coy little wink

    Now don't get pneumonia in the azz Chile...

    * my granny voice

  • CookieMobster

    When I saw Erykha's extra @ss hat on said to myself.... "With a high hat and souped up tempo I'm onna roll now it's time to go solo"

  • Sunshine ///

    Everyone looked great. I wouldn't expect anything different from Eryka Badu! With the exception of Michael Ealey they all dressed for the occasion. It's good seeing different styles for a change instead of a pattern.

  • Missy

    Erykah Badu my bew ??

  • Coy little wink

    I like erykahs onesie the print looks otherworldly ?

  • Yoni7

    THIS GIF! But WHY her feet ashy tho'???!!!! LMAOOOOOO
    Happy New Year!

  • Junkanoo

  • PlayerP

    Everyone looks good, especially Taraji's little cute self.

  • Yoni7

    Taraji's dress was all good until I saw that unnecessary "flair" ie. crystal flowers running down her crack.

  • MsPam

    I’ll pass, let R Kelly support the movie since Erykah and Taraji want to defend him.

  • Bashi22

    Taraji look great.

  • BingBangBoom

    Chile....

  • Pamela

    Why do all the ladies look 'plump'. Love them all though in their middle age finess. I relate.

  • Pamela

    Stop!????

  • BingBangBoom

    They say the deceased family only received 10 mil and Tracy was way over paid. Talking about he's neighbors with the CEO of Pepsi.. And has one of four of the biggest shark tanks in the world. Now we know he got coins from acting but come on now hustle man. Let's have some respect.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Whang!! Happy birthday, may all your wishes come true ?

  • Trace da Ace

    lmao!! Vonn....you's a mess for this meme!

  • WhoKnew

    Grant and Tamia look like what marriage should look like after 20 years of weathering the storm, the ups and downs and coming out on top. I love Grant's salt n pepper beard. Very distinguished in a panty melting kind of way.

    Taraji and Kelly with the Mista Spock eyebrows. Issa no for me dawg.

    Wondering if Erykah B. has decided to bathe. Years ago she said she doesn't bathe and I was like you nasty trash can. Pew.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Everybody looks great! This movie is a MUST SEE! It’s very entertaining.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Happy birthday ?????

  • ALLMINE?

    Taraji has like 10 movies a year..

  • Panther Charleston

    Badu is a damn fantasy. Every piece looks custom. She's been grinding a long time. Spend the money, bella, spend the damn money! She'll be studied years from now.

  • Renee26

    If you decide to watch it have tissues ready. It's a really good movie.

  • Hunni24

    Happy Birthday and going commando sometimes is good for the lady bits!

  • Logan Roberts

    Mary still looking happy & fly after Kendu bum azz (Wendy needs to take note). Grant Hill & Tamia are the definition of black love.

  • Blue

    I've been crushing on Mary since 1992.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Love that dress on her. Erykah looks classic Herself and not a day over 30.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    HB whang!!! Although I have draws on...I celebrate with you to the fullest!!

  • T Willis

    I’m not feeling Taraji’s dress...
    MJB looks fly as usual...
    Tamia doesn’t look too well, I hope her sickness isn’t flaring up... I just love her and Grant as a couple...
    I don’t know the rest of the folks on the red carpet but they look a hot ass mess.

  • T Willis

    I heard she was broke.

  • T Willis

    Wonder what happened with Proud Mary. I think I only saw two previews and then it vanished lol. A lot of her films are like that. If she’s the lead, it’s like we’ll hear about it for like a week and then... nothing.

  • ALLMINE?

    I don't understand..its weird

  • Zeta1920

    Is that a baby bump on Taraji? I hope so.

  • Nik

    OMG!!! I need to catch my breath after your Ealy comment ?????

  • Soon2BWife

    That dress is everaythang! I would modify the top it’s showing too murch but that back. Am I the only one that thinks too much décolleté is so played? Celebs keep pushing it. I am all about shoulders and peekaboo back.

  • Panther Charleston

    Whaaaat?!

  • Brown & Proud

    The wood! Booty call (2 of my faves)

  • leapyearpisces

    Yes! I would have kept the front neckline "in-line" with the back neckline....
    I wanted so much to like Erykah's boots, and I kinda do...I can't really make up my mind...I am conflicted because it's looks like a pack of Rottweilers took a dump in them while she was sleep. Ion know.

  • gail jones

    Yes. Erykah looks fresh and natural. Aging VERY well
