I want Sherri Shepherd as a best friend. After watching her host the Thurgood Marshal College Fund "Front Row" fashion show last Friday, I adore everything about the fun-loving, call-it-as-she sees-it single mom and co-host of "The View." (Shepherd's also a sitcom star with her show “Sherri," right here on Lifetime.)
When she wasn’t flirting with the male models of the show, or calling out celebrity make-up artist Sam Fine (who makes up the face of Vanessa Williams and Tyra Banks) for living up to his last name, Shepherd was wowing the crowd with her new curves in an emerald Tadashi Shoji dress (and matching eyeshadow) from Saks Fifth Avenue.
The event celebrated black leaders in the fields of fashion and entertainment and was also attended by Naomi Campbell, who received the fashion icon award for her 25 years as a groundbreaking supermodel, just before hopping on a jet plane to Moscow to be a guest editor for Russian "Vogue." (you heard it here, first, ladies)
