BRAG ON THIS: Angela Simmons, June Ambrose, Vivica Fox & More GET GLAM For BRAG's 42nd Annual Gala

It was a night of fabulousness in New York City as celebs flocked to the 42nd annual BRAG (Black Action Retail Group) gala.  And like for any big fashion event, our fave YBF chicks rocked a few gorgeous looks of their own for the occasion.


Check out Vivica Fox, Angela Simmons, June Ambrose, Supermodel Beverly Johnson, and plenty more inside...

The ladies brought the glam at last night's BRAG gala at Pier 60 in Manhattan.  Vivica Fox, in a forest green embellished J.Mendel gown and a black fur bolero, hit the carpet with Tamron Hall, Beverly Johnson and author Deborah Gregory for the non profit organization's important night.

BRAG is dedicated to the inclusion of African Americans and all people of color in retail and related industries, and it's also the leading provider of resources and development support that empowers people of color to reach their highest professional potential in retail and related industries.

So last night's awards & dinner gala celebrated BRAG's efforts with stylists, actresses, models, and fashion gals.

"Today Show" host and MSNBC host Tamron Hall looked stunning in her Jason Wu creation--a white peplum strapless dress, embellished with feather spurts.

Stylist June Ambrose made a pretty appearance in Moschino on her arrival with her husband, Marc Chamblin.  She accepted the the JJ Thomas Business Innovators Award.

And our fave fashion chick kept her look fresh with Lulu Frost earrings as she posed it up with fellow honoree Fern Mallis.

And she was spotted with ESSENCE EIC Constance White.

Angela Simmons worked a teal leather zipped pencil skirt from Super Trash at the event. 

And we're loving it with these two-toned gold & black Louis Vuitton wedges.

Supermodel Beverly Johnson was there in a sparkly black Sherri Hill jumpsuit.  She was also on hand to receive an award:

Ok Ms. Johnson.  In your good wig and showing all kinds of cleavage with your boo by your side.  Not mad.


BRAG President Gail Monroe Perry, JJ Thomas himself & Tamron Hall were on hand to present awards:

Fern, who is the Executive Director of the CFDA, rocked a pretty look from Tracy Reese.

The honorees posed it up with Thomas Belk, Jr. and Susan Akkad (far right), who serves as the Senior VP of Estee Lauder and is responsible for bring YBF faces to adverts for the brand.


Fab fashion times for a great cause.

Is this event called The

Is this event called The Older Woman Bash w/ the exception of Angela Simmons? I like the color of the skirt AS has on. I see Beverly Johnson age is finally starting to show unlike Iman who's aging has been showing for years now. It looks like Bev has had plastic surgery and it does not look too good. I hope Beverly has not forgot about her comment she made on Oprah about how ugly/scary some of her old model buddies look w/ plastic surgery and how unrecognizable alot of her friends look now. Looks like she may have to eat her words now. I have seen people w/ black under the eyes but, that man on Beverly's arms looks like he has decayed under the eyes. That man of hers looks like he has been doing some serious Voodoo because there's nothing but some bad ass living would cause you to look as Halloweenish as that boyfriend of hers look. I hope she does not marry this shady ass man. On her reality show this man appears to be shady and a opportunist. Vivica what can I say looks like Auntie Viv and June just ain't cute a lil bit!
