LaLa Anthony & Terrence J Host The 2013 Hip Hop Ball With Angela Simmons, 2 Chainz, MC Lyte & MORE!

LaLa Anthony is clearly not letting any of the rumors about her marriage get her down.  Because the reality starlet looked gorgeous on last night’s red carpet at the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball.  She hosted the event alongside Terrence J.  

We’ve got the pics of all the celebs who came out to celebrate President Obama‘s second term…

In a Lillie Rubin nude and black deep V cut beaded gown and Jimmy Choo shoes, LaLa kept it sexy for the Black Tie affair at DC’s Harman Center last night.  She told us on the carpet, “I’m just so honored and happy to be here. [Co-host] Terrence is my brother. And tomorrow, being a part of the official Ball, will be incredible.”

And we can’t even be mad at her for flaunting that killer bod.  Many couldn’t pull this look off but it works for her personality.

2 Chainz threw on his suit to receive the Street Soldier Award for his work in getting former felons and minorities to register to vote. Too bad he got into a slight scuffle at the afterparty with a random party goer.
