The 5th annual Essence Black Women In Music event took place at 1 OAK on Wednesday (January 22) in West Hollywood, California.
Leona Lewis: I haven’t always been a fan of Leona’s style, but here she showcases her curves wearing a gorgeous cobalt-blue one-shoulder frock styled with metallic accessories to complement her waistband.
Michelle Williams: The singer opted for a black-and-white BCBG ‘Patrycia’ jumpsuit featuring a mandarin collar from the Fall 2013 collection. While I love the jumpsuit, the pants are way too long for her.
Emeli Sandé: The British singer added some sparkle to the proceedings wearing a Paule Ka navy neoprene three-quarter-sleeve dress with shell-and-beaded embellishments styled with a sexy pair of lightly embellished blue sandals.
DJ Kiss: Wearing her go-to designer, the DJ wore a Peter Pilotto ‘Corrine’ 3D-effect digital print dress with directional additions of fluted cap sleeves and the curved hem which she styled with all black accessories. Only her fuchsia lip was in danger of upstaging this frock.
As a passionate supporter of animal rights and a long-term vegan, it doesn’t come as a surprise that The Body Shop have signed Leona Lewis as their new Brand Activist.
Yesterday afternoon, she made a personal appearance at The Body Shop in Westfield Shopping Centre in London, where her official role was announced.
The black-and-white trend continues to roll, as the singer wore a black ASOS shirt dress with a Western-style contrasting white yoke.
She styled her long-sleeved dress with black opaque tights and black wedges.
Her golden tresses were teased into sweet curls, adding a bright-pink lip colour and shimmering silver eye makeup which highlighted her green eyes.
I don’t know about you, but the dress appears to be too big for Leona. This is the type of dress Kim Kardashian should be wearing during her pregnancy.
I also don’t understand adding two necklaces if she wasn’t going to unbutton at least the top button of her dress.
You can buy Leona’s ASOS dress from ASOS US and ASOS UK.
The Oxford Street christmas lights switching-on ceremony took place on a cold bonfire night, with Leona Lewis and Robbie Williams performing for the crowds.
Leona wore a black embellished bustier top, black pants and black platform shoes, but glowed wearing a Milly ‘Alexis’ Fall 2012 coat.
Her double-breasted coat with black resin buttons and a bracelet sleeve looks super cosy.
The vibrant chartreuse hue of her coat was matching with an equally bold pink lip colour and red nail polish.
Loving everything about this look excluding the high side ponytail.
You can buy Leona’s Milly coat from Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, CUSP, Nordstrom, Saks.com and Saks.com UK.

Leona Lewis hosted an evening to benefit the Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in LA this weekend.
The British singer, who’s often hit or miss on the red carpet, was a hit on this occasion, dress-wise.
She donned a Claire Pettibone gown.
The designer known for her bridal gowns created this beautiful embellished gown with flutter sleeves and a plunging neckline for the singer.
I like the candy-pink lips, but I’m not sure I like the casual ponytail with her elegant gown.

Rosario Dawson wore a stand out Diane von Furstenberg ‘Judith’ draped sequin wrap dress with a revealing thigh-high split on the red carpet at the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in West Hollywood back in February.
The actress wore her hair in a chic chignon, but lets herself down with grey pumps.
Leona Lewis wore the same dress last night when she performed at Tony Bennett’s 85th birthday celebrations in London.
The British singer looked divine with bold red lips, whilst opted opting to sweep her hair to one-side.
Her footwear choice was equally just as bad as Rosario’s and as she opted for square-toe pumps.
Whilst I prefer Leona’s makeup, Rosario wins for me as I like how she tied the belt around the body to give the look some shape.
You can buy their DVF dress from Saks.com.

Leona Lewis was also at the 2011 GQ Men Of The Year Awards held at The Royal Opera House in London last night.
The gorgeous singer chose a sleeveless white Lucy In Disguise Fall 2011 dress with a fringed skirt.
Her vintage-inspired dress was paired with red accessories which included a large red clutch and red heels.
Red and white on the red carpet is seemingly becoming a red carpet trend.
Leona wore her long hair down in pretty soft curls and continued the red theme by adding a bold scarlet lipstick.
She’s had a bit of a bumpy ride in the style department lately and this ensemble is a step in the right direction.
I’m also glad to see her mid-section covered up and no wide corset belt.
