The Career of Excellence Award, an annual event that takes place under the auspices of Gwen Sargeant, was bestowed upon photographer Tony Barboza at the Bryant Park Hotel. Presenting the award was Constance White of Essence magazine, with remarks from one of Barboza's favorite muses, former supermodel Beverly Johnson. Barboza's daughter Leticia was also on hand, and between her and Robert Hill, I don't know who took the most photos.

Bianca Jagger looked absolutely stunning at the wedding of her daughter Jade to a lad named Adrian Fillary. Can't say I ever heard of him, but she, along with her daddy, rock star Mick Jagger, looked very sweet and very happy.
Since we're on the subject of looking good, Frank Kelley made a men's fashion statement by standing out from the crowd of men who looked like the usual suspects, dressed in the usual tux outfit (boring); he donned a steel gray suit, dark grey shirt and white tie, all of which looked like it was made from the finest of threads, at the 18th annual gala New York Academy of Medicine awards dinner held at the Pierre Hotel. Also enjoying themselves immensely were David Rankine, Melisa Guilliam and Mary Schmidt Campbell.
It is with profound sadness that I mention the passing of Joshua Christian Ragin Sajous, the grandson of the Rev. Barbara Williams-Herbert, who wishes to thank the many who reached out to her in her time of sorrow at his unexpected passing. Born Dec. 31, 1989, his life was short but full of accomplishments and love. A student in the School of Architecture at SUNY and Syracuse University, one of his proudest achievements was building a home as part of the Habitat for Humanity team, where he helped create a safe home for an expecting mother and child.
For all of you faithful readers who recall my asking last week, "When is Arsenio Hall returning to late night TV?" we have a winner. My editor, Kristin Fayne-Mulroy, who checks every article before it goes to print to ensure the New York Amsterdam News continues to give you the best in content and form, alerted me to the good news. Hall is coming back this fall, bigger, badder and funnier than ever. Dare I say handsome as ever as well?
Until next week...kisses.
