Style In The Wild: Essence Music Festival 2012 (PHOTOS)

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.
