Angela Simmons, the daughter of hip-hop legend Reverend Run of Run–D.M.C., slayed her recent looks worn to the 2019 Essence Festival over the weekend.
The “Growing up Hip Hop” star attended the New Orleans event as a guest speaker for the #HearMeOut panel held Friday, July 5, and ended up stealing fans’ attention with her jaw-dropping appearance. She sported an off-white, high waist maxi-skirt with a matching floral top and longline bralette.
Complementing her attire perfectly, Simmons paired her getup with a set of nude colored pumps and kept her accessories to a minimum, only wearing a gold watch. Her loose ringlets were worn to the side and her makeup was perfected to a T.
She fiercely posed for a few photos inside of her hotel room located in the French Quarter and wrote via Instagram, “New Orleans Hello 👋🏾 Touch Down ! Ready to get to it ! Headed to my @cricketwireless panel #yummygirl.”
Her post accumulated over 40,000 likes and several comments from fans who were enamored with her look.
“I think I gotta crush on Angela Simmons 😍 you look stunning queen 🌷.”
“It don’t matter what you wear fashion wise jus flawless. This is sexy mixed with grace.”
“Angela slayed that! I love how elegant she looked 👏 can’t wait to see her at the Essence fest next year.”
Simmons, along with a few other celebrity women that included Ashanti and Monica Brown shared their success stories and discussed the hardships they’ve endured in the entertainment industry.
The 31-year-old mother continues to step out from her father’s shadow and make a name for herself in the entertainment, social media and business world.
In September 2018, she launched social campaign Pressure Makes Diamonds, which aids teenagers and millennial women in overcoming obstacles by building their confidence and self-esteem.
“The whole idea of this campaign and the mission just came from [my] life and the pressures that I’ve been through,” she told Black Enterprise, referring to her teenage struggles with body image issues. She said the goal of the campaign is to promote healthier living, mentally, physically and emotionally.
