Selita Ebanks Joins The Monaco Royals At 2011 Princess Grace Awards

Celebs rubbed elbows with royalty last night in New York City at the 2011 Princess Grace Awards.

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco along with Anne Hathaway, Natalie Cole, Denise Rich and Julie Andrews (who received the night's top honor) were all in attendance.

The awards, which are named after Prince Albert's mother Oscar-winning actress Grace Kelly, highlight emerging talent in theater, dance, and film.

Our favorite lingerie model-turned-humanitarian Selita Ebanks, who has been busy with her Sierra Leone BirthRight Healthcare Program, also made time to celebrate the wonderful event.

Ebanks turned heads on the red carpet in a lilac gown embellished with plenty of feathers and ruffles.

However, this isn't the first time we've seen Ms. Ebanks all ruffled up.

Remember her starring role as a fallen mythical phoenix bird in Kanye West's epic video for the song Runway? Quite the modern (and weird) take on a love story--in true West fashion (see the video below to refresh your memory).

But between her days as a Victoria's Secret Angel, playing West's video love bird and donning last night's feathery frock--it's safe to say Ebanks has a thing for pretty plumes. But, are they fly or a fail?
