Celebrities gathered for the 21st Annual Essence Festival held in New Orleans, Louisiana July 2-5, 2015. Essence Magazine is all about celebrating black women and empowering others to live wholeheartedly and find their purpose. With all the amazing performances, seminars and powerful guest speakers, this event is a great way to network, be inspired, and have fun at the same time. You should definitely attend next year if you have the chance to. It is also known for A-list celebrities in attendance and the FASHION!
Here are some of my favorite looks from that weekend.
One of my favorite fashion bloggers, Claire Sulmers, is rocking a trend that I personally don’t think will ever get old; denim on denim. She dressed up a casual ‘fit just a tad with her awesome accessories.
Another fav, Angela Simmons, rarely disappoints as she keeps it fun and relaxing in this lovely printed dress and caged sandals.
Actresses Malinda Williams, Garcelle Beauvais, and Golden Brooks entered as one wearing perfect examples of easy, fresh summer ensembles.
Amber Riley wearing these printed separates beautifully. Loving the fringes on the kimono, a great staple for the summer by the way.
