“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” Season 2 NYC Premiere Party Fashion Round-Up

“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” Season 2 NYC Premiere Party Fashion Round-Up

Last night the NYC press reception for Season 2 of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” went down at Studio 48 in Manhattan. The Monami Entertainment, NFGTV and Myx Fusions-sponsored event was attended by cast-members Stevie J, Joseline Hernandez, K. Michelle, Mimi Faust, and Erica Dixon, along with reality personalities from VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop New York” and “The Gossip Game.”  We gasped, laughed, and cheered while watching the premiere episode, which was followed by a lively Q&A moderated by Mona Scott-Young.  The season premieres Monday April 22nd at 8 pm EST on VH1.

The ladies of “Love & Hip Hop” stepped out in their flyest threads so, without further ado, let’s get into their looks!

Check out the gallery below for more exclusive red carpet and candid photos from the event!

Executive producer extraordinaire Mona Scott-Young served business meets sexy in a $248 white BCBGMAXAZRIA Andres Cutaway Blazer, long coral tank, and $158 BCBGMAXAZRIA Cameron South America Patchwork Leggings in Coral Reef Combo.  Mona’s silk blend leggings have a mid-rise waist and allover geometric print pattern.  Get her leggings and jacket at BCBG.

Mimi Faust was pretty and poised in the $380 Karen Millen Mesh Dress. Mimi’s full-skirted open weave black dress features sleeveless styling, a thin belt around the waist, and grosgrain seam details.  Hot pink $725 Jimmy Choo Lance Strappy Sandals, a $148 BCBGMAXAZRIA Thea Clutch in pink and yellow, and matching neon nails completed her premiere party look.


We also spent time with Joseline Hernandez, who paired nude $275 BCBGMAXAZRIA Gamma Open-Toe Mesh Booties with the H&M Conscious Trend Divided Long Full Length Red Dress.  Joseline’s leather and mesh booties feature a zipper closure at the heel, exposed platform, and leather contrast at the seams and heel.  Her long sleeve bodycon dress has a front slit with back peep hole.  You’ll recall from last season of LHHATL how much Joseline loves her H&M, and when we mentioned this last night she smiled and stated that this is one of her favorite places to shop! “You would be surprised at what you can find there!” she exclaimed.

Unfortunately, Joseline never did make it on-stage for the Q&A because something went down in the V.I.P. area between herself and Stevie J…. and she left abruptly and mysteriously during the viewing! Hmmmm!

Erica Dixon (who arrived sans Scrappy and sans engagement ring!)  showed off her gorgeous curves in a sleeveless razer cut-out red dress by Philthy Ragz paired with tan printed peep-toe sandals and gold-toned accessories.  She is styled to the GODS by celebrity wardrobe stylist Ryan Christopher.  We spent a good while talking about her personal fashion sense and her preference for wearing what looks good on her versus always going for “labels.”  In the first episode you’ll see her and Scrappy having a candid discussion about budgeting and spending “within their means” as they save up and prepare for their upcoming nuptials.

The outspoken and fun K. Michelle was pretty and saucy in a one-shoulder black dress with thigh high slits and $750 Olcay Gulsen Black Suede & Mesh Pumps. A highlight of the night was the heart-warming reconciliation between herself and Mimi.

Stevie J. is hilarious and charming in person.  He divulged to Reality TV Fashion that he wore a pale gray Armani jacket with a Ralph Lauren fitted white tee and coral Ralph Lauren jeans.  Of course, he never took off his sunglasses the entire event, including during the Q&A.

“Love & Hip Hop New York’s” Lore’L showed her VH1 reality fam love by making an appearance in the $995 M Missoni Space Dye Animal Print Cutout Dress.  Lore’L’s sleeveless ribbed  dress features cutout and twist detail accents to the bodice, a crossover collar, and an abstract animal print with space dye to bold effect.  Get it at Shopbop, Bergdorf Goodman, or Neiman Marcus.

Friend to the blog and “Love & Hip Hop New York” star Yandy Smith was also in the house,  casual and cute as she wanted to be in a $1,195 Helmut Lang Crop Biker Jacket and $845 R13 White & Black Skinny Leather Chap Jeans.  Neon orange Christian Louboutin Spiked Pigalle Pumps and a bold yellow 3.1 Phillip Lim bag lent pops of color to her black and white monochromatic ensemble.

Later that evening, “Chrissy & Mr. Jones‘” star Emily B. made an appearance in a $58 ASOS Oh My Love Midi Dress in Snake Print and a $248 now $173 BCBGMAXAZRIA Andres Cutaway Blazer in Bright Poppy (via Fashion Bomb Daily).  Emily’s 3/4 sleeve stretch jersey dress features a cut-out insert to the revers, bold snake print design, and bodycon silhouette.  Her bold, strong-shouldered jacket has cutaway detail at the front with a back center slit. Get Emily’s dress at ASOS and her jacket at BCBG.



Meanwhile, I kept my look easy-breezy in a semi-sheer long sleeve black top and Straight Leg Floral Print Pants by Pink Rose.  My bold floral-print trousers feature dark tuxedo stripes at the sides and an elastic, self-tie waistband.
