23rd Annual Trumpet Awards Red Carpet Recap

By: Sebastien “@TheGayBestie” Gaudin

Over the weekend Atlanta was officially bombarded with stars and a few A List names. The 23rd Annual Trumpet Awards was taped at the Cobb Energy Center where fashion adorned the red carpet. Some folks we haven’t heard from in awhile came out for the show while other came out to work and work it.

Thankfully, the sun came out and skies were clean so we all could appreciate the art that strutting down the carpet. AS the arrivals came nothing but praise was given to each attendee. Even some surprising parings came with one another. Shay Johnson from Love & Hip Hop attended side by side with rapper Mystical. No one was expecting that. I guess its true, just get in where you fit in. No shade. We see the hustle.

Most importantly the Trumpet Awards is all about acknowledging those who have done a significant amount of work for the African American community. This year honoree Tommy Hilfiger was  apart of the celebration although he may not be black he has contributed a far amount of time towards the community.
