My great friend Robert asked me if I could assemble a crew to work the red carpet for the BET Honors awards show last Tuesday. I’d been sick for days, but you best believe I drank oj, soup and tons of tea to be well enough for Saturday’s event! The wonderful show honored Chaka Khan, Halle Berry, T.D. Jakes, Lisa Leslie, and Clarence Avant at Washington, DC’s Warner Theatre. The theatre is a performing arts venue originally built as a 1920s movie palace that now host to plays, musicals, dance and music performances. The BET Honors airs Monday, February 11th 9P/8C on BET!
My outfit: The goal was to be comfortable – because of having to work/stand for a few hours on the red carpet – but still SPARKLE – because I’m standing on the “red carpet” (haaa!). I decided on a vintage sequin blouse paired with leatherish leggings, wedge boots, and shiny accessories (see last pic:) Look out for my upcoming posts and videos of my chats with celebs. Please check out my “quickie” video from the red carpet:)
