  • Dani B.

    SO much is just off with these looks... Gabrielle, Nupita (whom I love, usually looks great in everything), Janelle, maybe it's the glasses or SOMEthing (shrugs shoulders) Did K.W.

  • Tammie Reed

    LOVED Janelle's look!

  • tynamight

    I can see Solange working that look not Gabrielle.

  • tynamight

    Janelle Monáe has the nerve to be posing w/ these anti-Black, anti-family feminists. Ugh!

  • Hill Candy

    Gabrielle, light skinned now.

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    Yes! Gabby look like she got 1bumdle of deep curly in color 2 and one bundle of body wave in color 4... in get head..... brushes out by a 3 year old..... no ma'am....

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Damn, Gabby, just damn!!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Troll forward.

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    It screams MELANIN SLAY!!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Gabby get an A for effort but whoever does her hair needs to be fired. Her hair dresser must used the cheap bundles at the bottom of the box in the hairstore (yall know the ones right in front of the register) ...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I take it that you've never worked outside of the home and you lived with your parents until they found a husband for you?

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    Janelle standing next to the yt women...i started thinking.. they all might be the same age.. too bad the yt age in dog years ??????

    Beauties Lupita Nyong’o, left, Kerry Washington, center, and Janelle Monáe glowed on the Winners Walk during 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City.
    YASSSSS ladies WORK!!!!! Lupita's skin tone and glow is everything!

  • tynamight

    Yeah, their skin def does not look good compared to Janelle's.

  • Miami8981

    Dumb question Tuesday and here's mine. Why do people who see other people get married? Gabrielle has been linked to other women and Wade has been linked to other men. Why get married? What does that validate if you're still seeing other people?

  • Guess Who

    Keri Washington's lips annoy me for some reason.
    Gabby's outfit is hideous and that hair does not work on her.

  • MsPam

    Kerry Washington is so boring to me! #YesIsaidit

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    From my understanding, they had a "ceremony" only. There is no marriage license on file in Illinois, California, or Florida.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I keep looking at Gabby's nose something is off *thinking*

  • 88

    Be careful house negroes coming to defend they misses in 5..4..3....2......

  • stav


  • Ni Ni

    Wow, I had no clue.

  • Ni Ni

    I never understood the fascination with her.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Yea I was thinking the same thing ?

  • Miami8981

    Really? Did not know that. Makes sense now.

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    Lupita has some kind of way about her that I don't like
    Gabby hair is terrible not everybody can pull off that look

  • Yoni7

    Gabby your outfit/hair is but it ain't, but it is. #juryisstillout #leaningmoretowardsis


  • Vonn

    Where is Gabby? Who is that cat face lady with D Wade?

  • Miany

    Most these folk look stooopid... Im sorry maybe im just not in the mood for fuggery today but shiiid they look stupid.

  • Coy little wink

    I like gabbys hair color but she looks like she's not so sure about that do

  • Vonn

    Who dis woman?

  • Miany

    See I knew there was a reason I said they all look stooopid. Glad someone agrees cuz I was beginning to think I was a hater lol

  • Mielle Downey

    ohh Gabby looks fabulous

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Yeah she had to save face after the break baby embarrassment. I think one of the "gossip" blogs broke the story last year

  • KcoolMuziq

    I just LOVE Gabby & Dwayne as a couple! I also like that Dwayne is growing his hair out in a CHIC new look. He is such a fashionista.
    I also like Janelle's(who I met last year) new sexy look with the boobs out.

  • Tlowe89

    I agree. Usually I love Janelle's look, but this look, is downright wrong.

  • Tlowe89

    I heard Lupita attitude sucks.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    A man that's a "fashionista".............speechless...and smh.

  • Scromes1212

    What is the president of planned parenthood doing there?

  • Tlowe89

    Hmph .... learn something new every day

  • Coco17


  • Coco17

    That larry sims guy from that show where he takes all his friends to cabo does her hair.

  • Coco17


  • Benjamin

    I am so late on this.
    Did you all know about this..(Judge Mathis completely Obliterated Wendy Williams) I have second hand embarrassment for her.


  • Hell_On_Heelz

    The pic with Lupita, Janelle and Kerry SCREAMS "Black Excellence". YES, QUEENS!

    I'm not liking Gabby's look. That make-up ages her.

    Sandra, Cecile had stated that she's not a feminist,

  • Please Stop The Madness

    CFDA gives PP a lot of money. Im sure they are there every year. They are at Fashion Week annually too.

  • n1kk1a

    Kerry finally got it right!

  • L.T.L. Since 2007
  • Please Stop The Madness

    Gabby looks stupid AF

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    She deserved it!!!!

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Every time this pops up somewhere, I have to stop and listen. Shyt gets funnier every time I hear it.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Dwayne a fashionista !!! ??????Gabby and him must have such fun shopping , putting outfits together, going to fashion shows!!!??

  • Blak

    WTF is wrong with Janelle Monáe's leg? Gabriel looks absolutely ridiculous and haggard...girl bye

  • MercifulLove

    Lupita's skin though......so beautiful

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What exactly is an anti-family feminists?

  • Ni Ni

    8 Abortions, bisexual, & a former coke head. Dayum, he read her azz. First time hearing this too.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Gloria told black women to leave THEIR men while she kept hers. She's an evil vile woman in my opinion.

  • Mojo2

    I think Gabby looks great, love the outfit.

  • Mojo2

    Gloria is the devil.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Hey hun

  • Liah


  • more

    Much like Wendy William telling everyone to leave their men but wont leave him

  • JV

    I like Dwayne's suit, but it's too tight in the hip area. A tailored suit is great, but that's too much imo.

  • Mojo2

    Janelle and Kerry WOW!! Lupita's dress, not do much.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I didn't even recognize Kerry Washington. She looks so different...

  • Ryan

    Whaaaa?? Daaaamn. ?

  • Ni Ni

    Lmao! Chile that right there was some good mess?.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    She sure is. Along with the other devil next to her in the blue dress.

  • Legacy

    Deeeyaaaam!!! He murdered and buried that bih!! Had no idea about it.

  • Benjamin

    ? The Judge was not here for her bullshit at all.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    I agree! Gabby actually look really cute in this pic. I love her untamed looking mane. Really fashion forward.

  • YellowSauce

    LOVES the pic w/ Janelle Keri and Lupita .... that all I got ....

  • MsPam

    Knowing you are about to be unemployed does that to you!

  • Benjamin

    Yes!.., so stunning!

  • tintin

    she just looks like her breath to stinks to me. but yes she does seem blah. but i like her for some reason

  • what?why

    She has a new boob job.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I never heard this before, but it was good!!!! Go Judge Mathis!!!!!

  • SuggaB

    What the???? The Wades look a hot azzz mess. Does he have on a broach? Wassup with her hair. Me no likey. No mas, please por favor

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Rayne

    That jumpsuit is bad to def! Lawd lupita you go with the ?. Gorgeous.

  • Smith Jane

    I like the pieces individually but I'm not sure if it's the way everything was styled or what. Like Gabby's makeup and poses could have taken this look to the next level.

  • Faithz

    The Wades look well, and happy.

  • Smith Jane

    No accountability to the black women who listened and decided that they were better off without them? Funny how Gloria was spreading that message to the general masses, but black women were the majority who listened. I guess it's easier for black women to believe that they're superior to their men.

  • Clopretty

    I am literally lovingggggggggg Janelle Monae & all this fierceness she's been handing out! this new look i loveeeeee!!!

  • Faithz

    Gloria, Janelle and Cecile looks well
    Lupita can dress her as of.

  • Faithz

    Kerry looks great she just need to add a little color to her lip gloss/lipstick.

  • Bam Bam Li

    I love you Janelle!!! ???????

  • starbright9449

    I live Janelle's current style. I also love seeing glowing black women, beautiful.

  • hotntot95

    Janelle practiced that stanz all night??
    I ain't mad...

  • Shira Harding-James

    I LOVE gabby's look except for the hair, everything else on point!

  • MookieFly

    Umm where is Angela Bassett?

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Liz

    Lupita and Janelle??. So beautiful

  • Kirenee

    I know! That was the only reason why I clicked... Love seeing how black don't crack!

  • Malcom Flex

    Here's what happens when older women date younger men. Behind her back he calls her "grandma" - no exceptions no matter how much money she gives him no matter how skinny she is no matter how much money she makes.

  • Moon Lee

    Absolutely stunning...

  • Guess Who


  • jazzysmith12

    If I can only take Kerry Washington's lips with me when I go on vacation.

  • Guess Who

    They look a tacky mess.

  • MookieFly

    I know whatever she wore was FIRE

  • Moon Lee


  • Goddess™


  • Dollface

    Black Excellence! Even Gabby this time. Horayyyyyyyyy! I love my boo Janelle Monae' Robinson.

  • Ro

    she stay sniffing!

  • reddfoxxy16

    Who is Gloria?

  • Anunnaki

    what you gonna do #nosy...

  • Anunnaki

    all those shades of black up top

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    This is deeper than Gloria and started before her. All she did was put the final nail in the coffin. You tried it though.

  • Scorpio

    LMAO!!!!.....She looks like a black Mommie Dearest!

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Gabrielle looks pissed off and Dwade looks like he is over it.

  • Dahl

    Gabrielle looks a bit matronly up there, maybe it's the awful wig. I also don't like the stringy, greasy wet look of Kerry's hair. Janelle looks great...

  • interestingconcept1

    Show me where Gloria said that...I need proof, because my mom knew and worked briefly with her, so please show me where Gloria said that. Gloria didn't say this! Why do folks make up lies and then spread them.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Lupita, Kerry, and Janelle... Charlie's angels! Three lovely ladies in various shades of beauty.

  • Real Name


  • Real Name

    She's the same in all the movies she play in, just terrible.

  • Vixen

    Gabrielle looking like she visited the Jackson's surgeon.

  • dontgetblocked

    All that money and everyone looked basic.

  • Shana Pace

    Jonalle Monae outfit is cute as fuc... and that hair looks horrible on Gabby

  • Shana Pace

    I mistook Jonalle for Michelle Williams

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I couldn't care less what you have to say or if your mama worked with that demon. You think Rihanna’s fat so I know your dumbs ass lacks credibility. Suck a dack and eat a fat one. Do your own reserch you lazy faux black racist shit! I saw whatyou said about blue's hair. Really trash? Really? Toodles.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Exactly! Doesn't Gabby look DECADES younger? She just reverses the time capsule. Also Janelle is just as beautiful as she can be.

  • KcoolMuziq

    And she calls him daddy EVERY night. STOP hating..

  • KcoolMuziq

    Preparing for her new starring role in the drama "911", which is getting a 13-episode straight-to series order at Fox.

  • KcoolMuziq

    No she doesn't! U just jealous that U don't have a baller to flaunt around as your husband. STOP hating!

  • KcoolMuziq

    It was WELL deserved to! The late Whitney didn't even come close to this although it was so coming to her. Plus EVERYTHING he said was accurate and true about her.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Then she has to never to ALWAYS try to out every black celebrity she can. When she secretly craves to invite in her bed every female she interviews. If U look at her interviews U can see her enticing eyes ALL over her female guest.

  • TeeTee

    Gabby is giving me "The Mad Hatter" .... who lost his hat

  • TeeTee


  • Mia Price

    Kerry and Janelle look amazing

  • Lisa daniels

    Janelle is a bish

  • Mrs Mary

    Gabby is mad because the break baby momma is on basketball wives

  • MRiGOThim

    Yasssss...the BLACK CHARLIE'S ANGELS!!!

  • kekeb

    I clicked just to see Janelle. I love her!!
    Side note: Gabrielle's skin is like miraculous


    Janelle Monae looks amazing...
    I like Gabby hair but it should have been thinned out a little more... Cute curl pattern.
    Keri Washingtons dress gorgeous.


    The thing about it is she looks younger than him..... though
    The one gift that black women have is if they take good care of themselves its very very hard to tell how old they are.... lol A black 40 looks about 28 or 29

  • Lucy

    I'm sorry but D-Wade and Gabby look awful. I swear that man is one fashion faux pas away from busting out of the closet.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

  • 4RGSpot

    Gabrielle and her husband has absolutely no romantic chemistry. When I look at them, I am like meh, but when I look at Boris Kodjoe and Nicole, they look sexy, in love and happy.

  • interestingconcept1

    Liar. She never said that.


    Gabrielle and her husband has absolutely no romantic chemistry and they don't look happy.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    ?. ?. Beast .

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    It breaks my heart to see so many Black women supporting Planned Parenthood. No one reads past a webpage and a brochure these days. Planned Parenthood was erected for the systemic sterilization of minority (primarily Black) women. I won't waste my time on my soap box today.

  • Arama

    She doesn't look younger. She looks kinda matronly in that photo.


    She doesnt look older than him..

  • NIA

    What's wrong with KW? she looks different I love Gabriel but the hair is not her...

  • Cie Be

    Love Gabrielle Union, but, yeah, the hair is not good for her; Janelle favors Tamron Hall, so cute & petite; Lupita, is just stunning and pretty! Kerry Washington, is well - okay....not a fan! Overall, they all are representing well! Peace
