2017 ESSENCE Festival

At the 2017 ESSENCE Festival on Friday (June 30) in New Orleans, Louisiana, Monica wasn’t the only one in attendance. Here, a look at some of the other beauties who were there.

Niecy Nash: Everything was coming up flowers for Niecy in this Chen Burkett dress that boasted a feminine, flirty edge tied up in all of its bold blooms with the big bow at the bust.

Jada Pinkett Smith: Also having some fun with flowers, Jada donned her petals in slightly more whimsical, nymph-like form with this Valentino Resort 2016 embroidered, sheer overlay frock that also featured a flock of birds to add to the garden-esque motif.

Queen Latifah: Polka dots instead of flowers formed the pattern of this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2017 off-shoulder, polka-dot dress. But, Queen Latifah wore it without the ruffled, cold-shoulder design, making the look far more ordinary than I would have preferred.

    I don’t like any of these looks. Niecy’s dress is too busy, Jada’s too twee, and Queen Latifah’s ill-fitting.
