True story Fashiona bought this vintage dress in Vermont when she was 15 but she couldn't actually fit into until she was 25...fashion first.

The night was frigid but Fashiona's temperature rose as soon as she walked in because she was standing next Nicole Ari Parker and her stunning husband Boris Kodjoe.  They made a   picture perfect couple; she in head to toe black and he in pinstripes.

The evening was hosted by former radio host Rashan Ali, a fellow FAMU alumni.  In fact FAMU was deep Saturday evening.  Honorees Will Packer and Rob  Hardy are both alum as well as Miss Fashiona herself.

In addition being honored by the CRG: Nicole, Will and Rob received recognition by the sitting Atlanta City Council.

Between all the photo opps and the award  presentations, Fashiona was able to talk to Will for a few minutes. She asked him what the biggest challenge he and his partner Rob faced in the film industry.
