2010 'Soul Train Awards' Red Carpet

Comments (28)


Returning hosts Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard dazzled on the red carpet.

'Soul Train,' the long-running syndicated black music showcase known as the hippest trip in America, has long been known for its soulful music and lively dancing, but who could forget the show's funky trend-setting fashion?

That was definitely the theme at last night's taping of the 2010 'Soul Train Awards' show in Atlanta. Celebrities from across the industry flooded the purple carpet at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in looks that ranged from fresh and sophisticated to glittery, over-the-top ensembles.


El Debarge and Faith Evans performed their new duet 'Lay With You' while walking through a new millennium version of the ubiquitous Soul Train Line.

On the red carpet, budding Def Jam diva Chrisette Michele made heads turn by wearing a turban-style head wrap that had more sequins than the 1960s. Freddie Jackson, on the other hand, didn't mind wearing all white after Labor Day on this warm fall evening.

Other attendees included Melanie Fiona, Doug E . Fresh, Sean Garrett, Tamia, Janelle Monae, Goapele, Rick Ross, Raven-Symone, Rachelle Ferrell, Dionne Farris, Lalah Hathaway, Tank, Dwele, SWV, Kem, Biz Markie, Steve Harvey, Jazmine Sullivan, Barbie and Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas, along with honored guests Ron Isley and Anita Baker. Of course, BET's head honcho, Miss Debra Lee, was also in attendance.

Although there were plenty of guests dressed to the nines, there were also some that could have used a bit more work -- or possibly a new stylist. That's for you to be the judge.

The 2010 'Soul Train Awards' doesn't air until Nov. 28, but until then check out the good, the bad and the mu-fugly fashion looks from last night's purple carpet.
