Black Tie Gala and Red Carpet Event Recap

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending a black tie gala and red carpet event for the 100 Black Men of South Florida organization.  If you aren't too familiar with the organization, they have chapters throughout the world that have touched the lives of over 500,000 young people through their Four For the Future: Mentoring, Education, Health and Wellness & Economic Development programs to improve the quality of life of citizens and enhance educational opportunities for the African-American community (primarily focusing on young males).

Their signature weekend kicked off with a college expo and scholarship fair, followed by the Warren Henry Auto Celebrity Golf Classic and the 10th Annual Signature Black Tie Gala.  It was empowering to be in the same room with other powerful professional players as we supported this amazing organization.

NFL legend Lawrence Taylor was featured on CBS at the celebrity golf classic which will air during the Super Bowl.  Miami-Dade Commissioner Jean Monestine, the honorable Manny Diaz, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, VH1 Basketball Wives' star Kenya Bell, and two of the original Tuskegee airmen were also at the black tie gala.

What I wore:
Exclusive for INTERMIX silk dress
Target belt
Steve Madden heels
ALDO handbag

When I'm styling myself for a red carpet event or gala I like to keep it very glamorous and sleek; therefore, I curled my hair and swept it to one side to coincide with my one-sleeve dress.  The dress was a jewel-tone hunter green and made of 100% silk.  I kept my accessories and makeup minimal, as I wanted to keep it simple and chic.  I didn't really take many photos with my camera because I didn't want to be carrying around a huge Canon camera, but I took some shots of my look at home.
