Gallery: Stars at the ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

February 28, 2014

I am finally back on the blogging train! The reason for my hiatus will be revealed in an upcoming even though there isn’t much to reveal at this point as it is πŸ™‚

With the awards season in full flow and all the fashion week and runway shows that have been going down, I have missed out on A LOT. But I’ll try to catch up on as much as I can.

So theΒ ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon went downΒ yesterday. Honestly, this is one of my favourite eventsΒ as I get to see some of the hottest women in showbiz own the red carpet. A handful of familiar faces came to kill. Let’s document their looks:

Lupita Nyongo’o is a queen in her own right. She came and emphasized that in a white crop top and matching skirt number which she accessorised with a deserving sparkling head band. Love this woman!

Brandy veered towards a kimono-style jacket and matching trousers. Minimal makeup and red platform heels finished off her look. Yes!

A heavily pregnant Kerry Washington aka Olivia Pope left us her Gladiators gushing over how pretty she looked in her blue dress and tossed curls. Pregnancy does suit her.

Rocsi Diaz looked pretty in a printed dress and nude pumps.

My girl Naomie Harris ALWAYS slays. She looked serene in a white sheer inset dress and natural makeup. Pretty.

The delightful Tamera Mowry looked sweet in a orange panel colour block dress. Gorgeous!

Tatyana Ali looked pretty as ever in a colour block yellow and white jumpsuit and half up half down hairstyle.

Laila Ali looked gorge in a white top, floral skirt and peep toe heels.

Angela Bassett gave all the starlets a run for their money. She looked beautiful in a purple print pencil dress and I live for her wavy bob. I would have left out the belt tough. Fabulous mama nevertheless!

Regina King looked good in a cream belted jacquard dress topped off with bright lips. I love her nail polish πŸ˜‰

Garcelle Beauvais Nylon is one beautiful lady. She looked great in orange fish tail midi dress. Her sandals did not suit the dress but she still looks fantastic.

Tasha Smith and Sharon Leal looked like stars. I want Tasha’s red wrap dress!

 

Salli Richardson looked great in aΒ red floral print dress.

Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis

Who were your faves? Who missed the mark?

Stay tuned for more!

Happy weekend people.

Love & Light xx
