Toni Braxton skipped the usual little black cocktail dress for a chic pair of pants and an off-the-shoulder sequined top when she was honored at the Collective Renaissance Guild’s 2010 Winter Ball: Phoenix Rising. Braxton was praised for her work with Autism Speaks and the American Heart Association. “Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” Sheree Whitfield and Cynthia Bailey and fellow honoree Martin Luther King, III were also at the ball.
