Our Favorite Looks from Shea Moisture's Wearable Art Gala [Updated]
Quinta Brunson, Magic and Cookie Johnson and Boris Kodjoe were just a few of the celebrities who rocked the red carpet at the Wearable Art Gala sponsored by Shea Moisture on October 22. Richard Lawson and Tina Knowles Lawson chaired the fifth annual event to raise money for artistic and youth mentorship programs.
The evening’s theme was a tribute to classic Harlem, and guests showed up dressed in looks that were a glamorous throwback to the 1920s - 1950s.
