The Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere was the most anticipated event of the year and Hollywood showed up and showed out.

From Princess Leia hairstyles to light sabers, Hollywood power players stepped out of their normal red carpet garb to pay homage to one of the most popular franchises in film history.

Karruehe Tran was one of several to arrive with the classic buns on the side of her head, but unlike Princess Leia, Tran showed quite a bit of cleavage. The beauty was in good company, also being joined by Sophia Vergara who twisted up her hair to pay homage to the princess. Got to love it.

Lupita Nyong’o, who plays Maz Kanata in the sci-fi flick, arrived to the event in a stunning Alexandre Vauthier gown; the ensemble perfectly fit for the premiere. “I thought I’d bring the galaxy with me,” she said during the live stream.

Another show stopper of the night, Janelle Monae, who stunned in a short, sexy dress that showed off her sexy abs and legs. Monae even rocked a long braid which was also perfect for the theme.

And leave it to some of the guys to dress as their favorite characters. The film’s star, John Boyega, sported one leather glove in honor of Luke Skywalker.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
