Fashiona attends the Atlanta screening of "Imagine That"

Fashiona and her workerbee Sis, attended the Atlanta screening of Imagine That, featuring Eddie Murphy and scene stealer Yara Shahidi last night. Upscale Magazine hosted the evening and did a great job of balancing the star power with the Upscale readers also attending last night's event.

Alicia aka "Fashiona"...prior to her Slushee mishap.

Who's who of Atlanta's Entertainment scene descended on Atlantic Station for this Father/Daughter night. The dress code was "family friendly" and for the most part everyone complied. The kids were really the stars. The little girls seemed to relish dressing up, wearing their hair "down" and spending quality time with their Dads.

Fashiona was able to snag a few words with Roger Bobb, Producer of Tyler Perry's movies and his cutie pie daughter Renée:

Alicia aka "Fashiona": Thanks for talking with me.

Roger: My Pleasure.

Renée: Hiiii!!

Alicia aka "Fashiona": You obviously have a close relationship with your daughter. How do feel President Obama's relationship with his family is impacting the state of fatherhood in America?

Roger: President Obama has "raised the bar" for black fathers. He has shown us a modern hip example of a man who is intelligent, a faithful husband and a great father who has time for his daughters... all while leading the nation. He has eliminated excuses for absentee fathers.

Alicia aka "Fashiona": I fully agree with you. Turning to Renée: What is your favorite thing you like to do with your Dad?

(Giggling)... Swimming.

Alicia aka "Fashiona": I like to swim too. Can you do the crawl stroke?

Looks to her Dad for help...she says Yes!!!

Alicia aka "Fashiona": Wow...with no floatees?

Blushing: Yes!!

Alicia aka "Fashiona": How old are you?

Six (Fashiona gives her a high five).

Alicia aka "Fashiona": Thanks so much Roger and enjoy the movie.

The surprise celebrity host.....Q (Quinnes) Parker from R&B group 112. Just prior the film starting, Q wished all the fathers in attendance Happy Father's Day and talked about the virtues of being raised in a two parent household and called all brothers to step up and be fathers to their children.

Fashiona, for one can't wait, until the retirement of the obnoxious phrase "Baby's Daddy".

There is nothing sweeter then seeing a father with his little girl(s).

OMG...Renee is ADORABLE!! It is a beautiful dynamic to observe-the father/daughter relationship,and I think it's great that Pres. Obama has set the standard not just for black fathers, but for all fathers in that is not only important, BUT COOL to hang with your daughter(s). Well done. Looking forward to more from you and thanks for stopping by Black & Plastic and commenting on Alek Wek-she too had a fantastic relationship with her father and he was the inspiration for her handbag line ;)
