*RECAP* Red Karpet Koverage ~ Black Girls Rock
by Kéla Walker
The annual Black Girls Rock event is one of my favorite red karpet to covered. It’s always a fun time and a big ol’ love fest for the women who are in attendance and celebrates all BLACK GIRLS who ROCK.
I meant to do this post earlier but but better later than never, right? THis is my third consecutive year covering BGR and my time ever. Its been around for YEARS but only made it to broadcast three years ago when BET picked it up. More than an award show, BGR is a movement that encourages black girls everywhere to celebrate each other and recognize our greatness. The red karpet is packed with my favorite BGR who definitely know how to rock the karpet. Typically I rock my signature red lip and sequins on the red karpet but this year I switched things up a bit and wore a kurlie do and this season’s IT lippy. Look out for my coverage on MadameNoire.com
Shout out to Camara aka A Unique Beauty for beating my face. She is amazing with skin avoiding making me looked caked and overdone.

I got to talk to tons of ladies on the karpet and asked them everythng from who their favorite BGR’s are to when was their moment that they realized they were a BGR.
