Essence Festival 2013 Street Style Stars: Style In The Wild (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The Essence Festival isn't just about music (although there's plenty of it). The 4-day extravaganza in New Orleans boasts insightful seminars, tons of celebrity appearances, dance parties and plenty of fierce and fabulous folks taking it all in.

It's those style stars that we're capturing in the slideshow below. Colorful maxi dresses, chic hairdos and bold accessories are just the start.

Look who we've spotted so far and make sure to keep checking back as we'll keep updating the gallery throughout the weekend.
