Foxy Brown, Lady May, BET's Ed Gordon, Blu Cantrell and Snoop Dogg, who
performed, were among those in attendance at Avery Fisher Hall in New York's
The Doggfather, who debuted his own Barbie-like doll, beat out Busta Rhymes'
Bushi, Jennifer Lopez's J. Lo, Nelly's Vokal and Outkast's self-titled
apparel brands with his Snoop Dogg Clothing for the New Urban Fashion
Celebrity Line award.
Mary J. Blige won Female Urban Fashion Aficionado. The queen of hip-hop soul
was up against Gwen Stefani, Eve and J. Lo. Lopez wasn't shut out
altogether, however — she was given the award for New Designer of the
Fashion mainstays Karl Kani and Russell Simmons, who were also on hand,
received special recognition outside of the show's 24 categories. Simmons
was given the Urban Fashion Humanitarian Award and Kani was presented the
Urban Fashion Pioneer Award. Tommy Hilfiger received the Urban Fashion
