Black Girls Rock is an initiative created by Beverly Bond for black women all over the world. An award show is hosted every year were women of various ethnicities and achievements are recognized for their different achievements in sports, music, film, humanitarianism, and sevral other categories.
One of the highlights of last night’s award show was unarguably Michelle Obama’s speech which focused on education and women empowerment. She said “I know there are voices that you are not good enough,” she said, acknowledging that she often lacked self-confidence growing up despite encouraging parents. “Each of those doubts was like a test,” she said, “that I either shrink away from or rise to meet. And I decided to rise.” “There is nothing more important than being serious about your education,” the Ivy League-educated Obama said. “That’s why I am able to stand here tonight. … I want every one of our black girls do to the same, and our black boys.”
Also noteworthy was Will Smith’s emotional tribute to his wife through which he completely put divorce rumors to bed.
Black and white were the colors chosen by several of the attendees whether individually or combined. My favorite looks were from Michelle Obama, Tracy Ellis Ross, Jada Pinkett Smith and Janelle Monae.
Michelle Obama: She chose an off shoulder white dress which she paired metallic court shoes.I loved her outfit so much, I thought it was simple and perfect for the event. I like how informal the outfit is but still has a “first lady” feel to it, and those earrings are beyond gorgeous I am still trying to find out who designed it.
Janelle Monae: One of the most stylish women in the industry, Janelle Monae is best known for her black and white tuxedos and jumpsuits. I love that she is playing with other looks and colors now but is obviously still keeping black and white as the central theme colours. I love this ensemble so much, everything compliments each other. The detailing is amazing, absolutely my favorite look of the night
Tracy Ellis Ross: This is honestly the best I have seen her look. Everyone knows Tracy’s style tends towards boho-chic which can be quite difficult to pull off and most times she doesnt pull it off so well. I am super thrilled that she nailed this look without deviating from her personal style and her hair looks absolutely amazing!!
