NYC welcomed some of the hottest names in hip-hop for the YouTube 2012 Upfronts. An ever-so eclectically fashionable, Skateboard P. showed up for the occasion in his own jeans while Jay-Z hit the stage in his favorite- all black everything and Flo-Rida glammed up the stage in studs and chains. The lady of the night, Ms. Jennifer Beals dressed up a bit more than the male attendees in a pretty printed frock.

Rick Ross had quite the busy day yesterday, jet-setting from the beach in Miami with the boys to appearances in NYC with his MMG team which means he had quite a few wardrobe changes to model for us. Rihanna on the other hand kept it simple for us this dress down day wearing little to no makeup yet again.

We couldn’t be more excited to have spotted Rihanna’s ex, Chris Brown in polka dots yesterday. Turns out, men can rock the trend too!

Dionne Bromfield and Jessica White seemed to have the same idea in their minds for their appearances showing some skin in blue dresses—Ms. White baring a bit more.

Another great day in style. Any mishaps in your opinion? Let us know what you would change about any of these outfits on Twitter @EbonyMag!
