This photo by AJC photojournalist John Spink is a lovely distraction from the mess outside the fabulous Fox Theatre the past few days. Traffic has been shut down on part of Peachtree since Wednesday night and just reopened this morning due to the 2011 Soul Train awards which taped at the Fox last night.

Cynthia Bailey of Real Housewives of Atlanta hosted the red carpet as dozens of local and national celebrities showed up. She also hosted and after party at Bar One following the three and a half hour taping. The Soul Train Awards will air on BET on November 27, 2011.

Cynthia wore a thin sleeveless dress with black tights to greet the guests; but, she was frequently seen dashing to the side to warm up in a black jacket. The tights were a great choice not just for the wind chill, but it was very windy downtown yesterday.

Everybody knows, it ain’t a party without Phaedra Parks. Phaedra looked toned and amazing in a tight-fitting geometric patterned dress. I bet she was cold too as temperatures fell sharply yesterday afternoon but no one wanted to cover up their dresses. Is it just me or does Apollo look like a body guard lurking in the back.
