In the five years this writer covered the Steve Harvey’s Ford Neighborhood Awards, all in Las Vegas, I can testify with certainty how many of the nominees for the Neighborhood Awards (formerly the Hoodie Awards or “Hoodies”) often traipsed across the blue carpet cloaked in exquisitely-designed outfits that rivaled — and sometimes outdid — their celebrity counterparts who were usually the focus of the media and photographers.
Thus, I knew the nominees were going to “bring it” this year as well as the Neighborhood Awards made its debut at Atlanta’s Phillips Arena, particularly the women nominees. And this writer was not disappointed.
Take a look at the best nominees’ dresses at the 2014 Ford Neighborhood Awards in Atlanta.
