We were down at the Essence Music Festival in the Big Easy this past weekend taking in all the the sights, sounds ... and, of course, style.

Fashion-forward ladies from all over the country came to New Orleans to enjoy all the fun activities at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and jam to the star-studded performances at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

We spotted eye-catching accessories, bold colored sundresses, playful jumpsuits and plenty of confidence. The beauty moments -- sleek straight 'dos and big curly coifs -- were also worth snapping.

With that said, here's a look at some of the dressed-to-impress women who caught our eye. Make sure to rate the pics and let us know who you think looks the best.
