Style Appeal: BET Awards 2014 Fashion!

Ladies BROUGHT IT this year!


The red carpet for the 2014 BET Awards was filled with black hollywood’s finest and they made sure to bring their A-Game with them…well most did. Stars such as Ashanti, Tiwa Savage, Amber Rose, Kerry Washington and more rocked beautiful threads at LA’s Nokia Theater.


White was definitely the color of the evening as many stars including Paris Hilton, Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon, Gabrielle Union and more rocked the light hue. The color choice was perfect for the warm Cali weather.

This movie is based on the best selling erotic novel by Zane.

President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria decided to pen an open letter regarding the almost 300 girls that have been missing for months. This letter comes days after several more girls were abducted in Borno by the same terrorist group.  In the letter the president sympathises with the families who have missing children and have been terrorized. He also claims the Nigerian government is doing ALL they can to bring the young girls back to their homes safely. The letter can be read here


Let’s hope this plan is executed as soon as possible because who knows what dangers those girls are facing every day.
