The Essence Fest 2017 was LIT! Yup, the celebrities showed up, showed out and the New Orleans location only made the event even more spectacular.
Like a Mardi Gras without the beads, celebrities showed up in their most stylish looks to preform, enjoy the festivities, and even bust a groove — we see you, Teyana!
