75-year-old R&B legend Patti LaBelle stunned at the grand opening of Tyler Perry Studios.
Tyler Perry celebrated the inauguration of his 330-acre studio at Fort McPherson, in Atlanta with the most glamorous gala, attended by every star worthy of the name.
Among the big sparklers was the unforgettable and inimitable Patti LaBelle, who stunned in a gorgeous and unusual gown.
Patti ended up celebrating with Halle Berry, Cicely Tyson, Whoopi Goldberg.
Patti wore a long black gown of striking simplicity, with a floor-length black cape attached at the shoulders with diamanté clasps.
The dramatic cloak was lined with scarlet satin, and Patti carried an amusing sparkling clutch bag shaped like Minnie Mouse.
The mythical Patti was right at home, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Sidney Poitier, Oprah Winfrey, Samuel L. Jackson, Spike Lee, Denzel Washington, Ava DuVernay.
Tyler Perry gathered together an unimaginable group of some of the most talented people in the movie and music industry under one roof, and the guest list put even the Oscars to shame.
Apart from the great legends like Patti, Cicily, and Sydney, the new generation of new stars was well represented by Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Will Smith, Tiffany Haddish, Taraji P. Henson, and many, many more.
Patti LaBelle may be 75-years-old, but she's still a hopeless romantic who believes in true love and commitment.
“I still have time to find a husband. I don’t want a boyfriend. I want a husband.”
LaBelle, who was married for 34 years to ex-husband Armstead Edwards, has even planned what she'll wear for her wedding to Mr. Right: a gown designed by her friend Zang Toi.
