Ashanti: Glamorous in Red at NAACP Theater Awards



Ashanti’s old Hollywood glamorous style was stunning at the NAACP Theater Awards yesterday. Thank you Ashanti for showing taste, class and for wearing red lipstick!  I’m a little done with the nude lip for every single red carpet occasion.  Her Veronica Lake inspired hair and fresh matte makeup was too beautiful.  If there is ever an occasion to vamp it up, it’s the red carpet, and Ashanti ROCKED it!

    She definitely nailed the “old Hollywood” look! She looks absolutely stunning. She really has the perfect skin tone for that red dress and lipstick! So beautiful!
