Let’s be honest, the real reason most of us have been so anxious to be back outside is because we want to see our girls. Yes, we want to dress up, and have brunch, and sip cocktails, but we want to do all of that with our besties which is why it warmed our hearts to see so may of our favorite famous ladies link up this past week.
Los Angeles may have been one of the last cities to lift its social distancing ban, but there’s been no shortage of festivities since it did. From our own ESSENCE Fest party in collaboration with Hillman Productions and MACRO, to BET Awards, and red carpet movie premieres, Black girls are back outside and linking up. Check out our favorite pics of us paired up below.
