Last weekend, Heart & Soul Magazine flooded Charm City with a series of events–receptions, conferences, and expos–dedicated to “making our world a healthier, wealthier, and wiser place to be”. The marquee event, the 2011 Heart & Soul Awards, got underway on Saturday evening in Baltimore’s famed Inner Harbor. The Renaissance Hotel was the place to be as celebrities, political figures, and other dignitaties came out to celebrate women that are making remarkable contributions to health and wellness. Actor Boris Kodjoe was the master of ceremonies and the lovely Vanessa A. Williams was co-host.
I had the pleasure of being Radio One’s official red carpet host. Stay close for the “Heart & Soul Awards Red Carpet Special,” with interviews of Boris Kodjoe, Nicole Ari Parker, Kindred The Family Soul, Maysa Leak, and many more! In the meantime, enjoy these fabulous stills.
Special thanks to stylist Desiree Venn Frederic and make-up artist Kenyetta Greene. I felt great in a Rick Owens black dress, fringe necklace and Halston platforms.
