Ebony magazine threw a big party in LA last Thursday in honor of its 65th anniversary. Somehow we missed the invite (ahem, get it together Ebony, ahem) but the mag’s website has details of the event.
Though the cocktail was fabulous and the dinner divine, the party really got started when Ebony’s Editor-in-Chief Amy DuBois Barnett kicked off the Soul Train line.
Tony Award winner Viola Davis, The Event’s Blair Underwood, Tron’s Yaya DaCosta, True Blood’s Rutina Wesley, Desperate Housewives’ Vanessa Williams, Vogue fashion editor Andre Leon Talley (who brought an actual princess with him to the party) and Johnson Publishing Company CEO Desiree Rogers shook and shimmied down the aisle – all to celebrate Ebony’s 65th anniversary.
Wolfgang Puck catered the event (ahem, seriously Ebony, let us know about his stuff, ahem). We’re also told comic Robert Townsend insisted on doing “the butt.” Which we would also have insisted upon too ahem, if we were invited, ahem.
