Thursday, July 31, 2014, I attended the 2nd annual Women Empowerment event produced by Runway Ink. The event consisted of a fashion exhibit and an award ceremony. There were over 100 nominees in eight categories, the winners were chosen based on results of a voting poll. Below you will find the winners in each category

Honoree Of The Year: Kalenna Harper
Another highlight of the night was the opportunity to meet songbird Kaleena Harper. Kaleena is a member of the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta cast as well as a former member of the group Dirty Money. Although the meeting was short lived, I will say that Kaleena and her team were very nice and down to earth. Kaleena look absolutely amazing from head to toe. Even with her belly getting bigger due to her love on top growing, she looked haute in her form fitting orange gown. While I am in love with her look sporting the purple hair, I must say; her long flowing dark brown hair was A1.
Mental note, never sit by or near China Smith again because she is too much, but we had so many laughs.
