    She looks great. Like her dress.

  • kismet

    Totally loving that dress!

  • botox

    It’s too bad that she admitted she uses botox…it looks good in the beginning but after awhile she will not be able to move her face.

    Yes, she is African American. She has two AA parents with a mixed lineage. Therefore if both parents have recessive eye genes, she could have blue eyes. My mother is AA and she has green eyes.


    Vanessa is beautiful tonight, and I love that dress…..She did not win, but I’m surprised Jean Smart did. …..My pick was Christina Applegate….She has worked hard to get away from her ” kelly Bundy” days, and is a very talented and funny young woman……Jean is a talented actress also, but the character is not that funny… least to me!

    Vanessa DOES NOT have blue eyes. Her eyes are grey as she has stated many times before.

  • Lisa

    Oh and her dress was beautiful

  • mihay

    Absolutely stunning! I love her dress.

  • kk

    JJ- Yes it is possible for black people to have blue, green, hazel, eyes. My father is a dark skinned man and has eyes with green tint , his brother was a fairskinned black man and had green eyes, and i have another uncle who has blue green eyes. Due to all the mixed lineage most blacks come from it is possible to have colored eyes. Whites don’t have the monopoly on that.

  • acabrina

    thanks, kk!!! I have 11 siblings and 7 of us have green, gray, ( and sometimes light blue) and ( what I call topaz) colored eyes, but what most would refer to as hazel. Sometimes our eyes look like marbles! Often depends on what color we’re wearing. Both my parents are African american. My great g-father was part Dutch. Go figure!! It’s a shame that some folk are still extremely ignorant about these things. The sad truth is, most people with stereotypical attitudes miss out on a lot of good, GENUINE relationships because they have these preconceived beliefs. what a shame………….

  • acabrina

    oh! Vanessa is gorgeous inside and out!! That’s what makes her a beautiful person regardless to what she wears. Inner beauty makes the outer glow!

  • holly

    ery beautiful, but i didnt enjoy the dress a lot

  • Rio

    great dress but i think it was too tight, she is so NOt fat but with that dress…
