I’m sure your timelines on social media are flooded with images of the Essence Festival that is taking place right now in New Orleans lol. Celebrities have transitioned from the BET Awards to the Essence Festival now. Lots of them stopped by the annual McDonalds 365 Black Awards. I opted out this year because its the same folks that I just saw out in Los Angeles just dressed down a bit, so I didn’t bother going and if you read my post last year, I wasn’t really that impressed with the whole thing lol but my photographer buddy Paras captured a few folks at different events thats taking place. So here is the first batch of pretty pics for you to enjoy this holiday weekend. Check out who hit up the gold carpet at the prestigious award show inside…
