Rockstar entertainer Ciara, celebrated actress Gabrielle Union, Designer Charles Elliot, known for the infamous red cap on Beyonce and Celeb Stylist Jason Rembert whose responsible for the looks on Rita Ora (one of my favs red carpet slayas) all have one thing in common...they are the 2015 ESSENCE Street Style Award Honorees! Each will be recognized at ESSENCE magazine's 2nd Annual "Street Style Awards" Dinner during New York Fashion Week on September 13th.
Now just why did Essence select these heavy hitters? You'll find out below, check out the dets courtesy of Essence.com
GABRIELLE UNION - Closet Crush Award
Because she, and her TV character, Mary Jane, look effortlessly fresh, modern and polished at every turn. Gabrielle knows how to play up her killer figure without overdoing it.
TRUE GLAM: "When someone who loves and cares about me compliments me, I feel more glamorous than when the flashbulbs are going off on the red carpet." Follow her on Instagram @gabunion.

CHARLES ELLIOTT HARBISON - Designer to Watch
The Parsons School of Design grad launched his first women's wear collection in 2013 to rave reviews. After his 2014 spring collection, The New York Times reported, "Mr. Harbison is certainly going places. . . ." Beyoncé and Solange agree and rock his gear regularly.
HIS FASHION MOJO:
"My personal style—a combo of ease, classicism, quirk and romance—definitely impacts my work. My clients are intellectual and bold, yet easy and relatable. I love that." Follow Charles on Instagram @hrbsn.

CIARA - Curator of Cool
New mom, new boyfriend, new look! Ciara has moved from being a chic pop star to a more aspirational red-carpet fixture—who still manages to have a little fun (backward baseball cap, anyone?).
HER STYLE TIPS: "Don't overthink your fashion choices. Whatever you feel in your gut, roll with it. Have fun with fashion. When I have fun, it always comes out right." Follow Ciara on Instagram @ciara.
