Most may remember Ms. Atkins as Dee Dee Thorne from UPNs Half and Half, but you might be surprised to learn that she’s been in the acting game for years. Over the past couple months, Essence has been spotted out on the town with gal pals, Gabrielle Union and Sanaa Lathan . . . looking fabulous. Fly, chic and sophisticated are the first things that come to mind whenever we see this gorgeous fashionista.

    She always looks so cute!

    I’m a big fan of Essence Atkins. I’m glad she doesn’t iver due the party seen like Gabrielle.

    There is something so classy about her style even when she’s dressed down.

    Essence, if you read this, Happy Early Birthday!
