Brandy Norwood In Elena Reva – 7th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Brandy Norwood In Elena Reva - 7th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Brandy Norwood attended the 7th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon held at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday (February 27) in Beverly Hills, California.

She was one of the first to arrive and one of the last to exit the red carpet because she took time to speak to everyone.

When it was my turn I asked her how she picked this gorgeous red Elena Reva sleeveless pant look. She said it wanted something edgy, but was still classic for a luncheon, explaining that it stood out on a rack of clothes shown to her by her stylist.

She then went onto talk about her new hair cut; which did to celebrate turning 35 on February 11. “It makes me feel grown. It makes me feel like a woman”, she said with a cheeky smile, going on to describe her personal style as ‘bohemian chic.’

Brandy styled her ensemble with red suede Louboutin platform pumps, an Erickson Beamon Rocks ring and a Helmel multi-coloured snakeskin clutch.

Are you missing the black belt?

    Not liking the shoes, hair or this entire look.

    Love the pant ensemble (!) – beautiful, vibrant, standout, interesting. Not missing the belt but those platform pumps ruin it for me.

      …a tie at the waist accenting her slim figure (instead of the belt) works beautifully. I think it’a great look for Brandy and stands out among other more predictable looks, I’ll just ignore the shoes.

    love this whole look. Red looks beautiful on her skin tone. Very Simple & chic.

    I like the pantsuit and don’t miss the belt. Would prefer gold instead of silver and want to burn the platforms.

    I am missing the belt, i think all the red and the structure makes it look a touch sloppy. Wish she had chosen dainter pair of shoes but otherwise i quite like this look.

      I agree. It really needed a belt in an off-set colour. It works for me on the model, but not so much on Brandy. The shoes are grrrr.

    Not liking the hair as usual. Really like the outfit, but the styling is killing it for me.

    It would’ve been better with the belt, but I don’t miss it. The shoes are hideous. She looks great from the ankles up.
