Last year, First Lady Michelle Obama graced the stage at the prestigious Black Girls Rock ceremony dressed in buff white chiffon. Young girls and women looked at her in astonishment as she gave her best girl power speech, assuring our young girls of their value and strength.

This year, BGR had another squad of powerful, intelligent black women including, the legendary Gladys Knight, Monica, Brandy, Jazmine Sullivan and so many more. As usual, the women of BGR shared some inspiration with the audience to remind them of a woman’s contribution in this society and how important it is to encourage our younger generation of women.

In addition to being a night filled with inspiration, this years’ BGR was also filled with glamour and gorgeous drapes. It is hard to list all of the slay-worthy fits into one post, but here are our PYNK picks of some of our favorite outfits from the evening.
