Fab or Drab: Apollo Theater 75th Anniversary Gala

Last night some of our brightest stars gathered at Harlem's Apollo Theater for the legendary theater's 75th anniversary celebration.

Nearly everyone brought their beauty A-game, because the ladies looked great! For a little twist, I threw in the fellas, too. Check it out:

Fab!

Despite nearly being upstaged by her cleavage, Mariah Carey wins the award for most glam of the night. Her soft curls and shimmery makeup were flawless!

Robin Roberts is a fave of mine. Love her cropped curls and bold burgandy lip!

I'm pretty sure Sam Fine's work is all over Ms. Patty's face. Though I am a tad taken aback by those drawn-on brows, the original diva looks fierce as always!

Phylicia Rashaad, my favorite TV mom, looking lovely as always.

Drab...

I don't know what happened here! NYC anchor Sade Baderinwa usually looks stunning. I guess her makeup artist was a little heavy-handed with the bronzer...

Hmm. Not sure what to make of this. Victoria Rowell is obviously gorge, but something is off here. She's looks a little pale/washed out...

I am not a fan of Fantasia's new wig. 'Nuff said.

I like Gayle King, but she never experiments with her wig, err, hair. I would love to see her try something new just once!

Had to add this pic. Jamie looked too good not to!

Bill Cosby, everyone's favorite TV dad.

Only Prince can get away with a 2-piece, bell-bottomed, bell-sleeved, pastel yellow suit with matching pumps (yes, I said pumps) and a cane. And lets not forget the sunglasses indoors! Like I said. Only Prince...

Is it just me, or does Quincy Jones never look uncool?

Did I get it right this time? Who do you think looked Fab/Drab?

I think this is the best one yet!!!!! But I will have to add that Mrs. Rashaad might need to be moved to the DRAB list. I can't quite put my finger on it but it is something with her eyes that is not working. Oh! I got it! It her eyeliner. Did someone apply that with a 2 inch paint brush. The makeup that gets put around your eyes is supposed to make them "POP". Hers definatly where not. Amber, maybe Fantasia's wig might have looked better at a different angle.........we hope.
