The heat in downtown Los Angeles didn't stop celebs from donning black.

Ne-Yo went casual with a long-sleeve ebony sweater, camouflage pants and a black fedora, while rapper Wiz Kalifa sported a black suit with cropped trousers, and his fiancée Amber Rose accentuated her pregnant belly with a fitted lace black gown.

"I'm hot, and my feet hurt, but I look gorgeous," boasted Rose.

Pink's husband, Carey Hart, also rocked a black suit, while his pop-star wife showed off her body in a one-of-a-kind, beaded, body-hugging Stella McCartney gown with a row of metal spikes in her hair.

"I like weapons," Pink said.
