|Queen Latifah & Mr. Will-W.|
Playing host to an enthusiastic crowd, the Grammy, SAG and Golden Globe Award winner was oh-so-radiant, never without a smile and certainly without a lull. Being the Face of CoverGirl Makeup, she admitted that her look could never be achieved without a team of Professionals and this evening was a tribute to those who dedicate themselves to the Art of Beauty.
Black, who was a Presenter tonight, brought the house down with her self-admittedly poor French, pronouncing the names of nominees and eventual winner of the Best Beauty of Fashion Blog (French) award with a knowing wink. Even Queen Latifah had to ask the audience jokingly after, "Are you sure you still need me here?".
Watch the hilarity below:
Other notable winners tonight included Jean-François Légaré who competed against himself as a three-time nominee in the category of Best Fashion Feature: Magazine or Newspaper (French). Elizabeth Cabral of Flare Magazine accepted her Best Fashion Editor of a Magazine award with low-key humility. David Lackie of the National Post won for his piece Get Untied in the brand new category of Best Male Fashion Feature. Lovely Model Frances Coombe also was honoured as Best New Face; she smiled sweetly when I congratulated her at the Bar afterwards.
After the Show, Queen Latifah came out to pose for a Group Photo with tonight's Winners and luckily, she came over and posed with me for a Photo (as seen above). Honour. Thank you P&G and MSL for having me! I cannot wait for among other things in my Goodie Bag, that Cold Stone Creamery Cake ....and of course, I will apply those Crest White Strips thereafter.
