This event was held at Brooklyn’s Kings Theater in honor of Ashley Stewart’s original launch in Brooklyn over 20 years ago. The pink carpet included an onset of black excellence including Boris Kodjoe and his wife Nicole Ari Parker, spiritual healer and life coach Iyanla Vanzant, gospel singer Kierra Sheard, “Power” actress Andrea-Rachel Parker, and platinum-selling R&B trio EnVogue.
