Celebs have made their way down to New Orleans for the food, music and fun at the 2013 Essence Festival. We’ve got who took in the first night of shows and fun last night inside….
Last night at the Superdome, celebs were partying it up while major performers Maxwell, Jill Scott, Brandy and more performed on the main stage:
Just one day after slaying the stage at her hometown Philly’s 4th of July Jam, Jilly rocked out at Essence Fest Friday night.
Brandy hit the stage.
And Maxwell and LL cool J also shut down the stage.
The sexy Laz Alonso was spotted taking in the performances.
Michelle Williams looked hot in her black & white printed pants and matching blazer and pink platform heels. A bit hot out for this fall look, but cute nonetheless. And we’re sure she’ll stick around till Sunday night to watch her sis Beyonce rock the stage.
“Hollywood Exes” star Nicole Murphy was sitting pretty in red.
And so was the fab Kenya Moore.
Pooch Hall was spotted leaving his hotel. His friend is NOT please with whoever is walking behind them.
Darrin Henson was there with Robinne Lee.
Bobby Brown, who was there with his wife Alicia (at the very top), posed it up with Steve Harvey‘s co-hosts Shirley Strawberry and Carla.
