It’s always a pleasure to see beautiful black women in one room uplifting each other. Essence aimed to do just that with their Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon on Thursday. Honored for the event were Oprah Winfrey, Issa Rae, Gabrielle Union and Mara Brock Akil for their acting, writing, philanthropy and producing credits.
The ladies didn’t hold back when it came to style, wearing stylish cocktail dresses and sultry heels.
Let’s take a look at 15 of our favorite looks from the event!
