 Yesterday in Tinseltown, Essence Magazine held their annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon. Featuring the top names in film, television & more, the occasion called for fierce ensembles in a ladies-who-lunch kinda way. Check out some of the highlights featuring my top 5 favorite looks of the event...

I absolutely loved Serena Williams' off-the-soldier white cocktail dress. I think it shows off her toned arms to a tee. Sultry but still luncheon-appropriate. Not a fan of the flats though. Girl, where are your heels?

Hot mama Tia Mowry-Hardrict showed off her baby bumb in a goddess-like black gown. Tia always looks so stunning, and of course the pregnancy glow just adds to the overall effect. Gorgeous!

Access Hollywood show anchor Shaun Robinson showed off the quintessential "ladies who lunch" look in a coral gown and nude heels. The color looks amazing against her skin tone, and the dress is tailored perfectly to show off her curves. Loved this look!

Of course I couldn't leave out my girl Angela Simmons! This dress looks amazing her. Love the sheer chiffon, love the asymmetry and those shoes? Wowzers!

My last pick goes to Ms. Tatyana Ali, who looked glam in a blue iridescent cocktail number. I'm always a fan of brown girls taking on bright colors. They make you glow! I love the construction on this piece too, not too much but just enough to make you look twice.

What do you guys think of these looks? Any faves that I haven't listed here? Soundoff below!
Pin It!


  1. Serena probably still can't wear heels because of her foot injury...

    Angela's dress kind of makes her look pregnant and her shoes in my opinion are too heavy for that dress.

    Tatyana's dress looks cheap...like she got it from the Church Lady store.

    Maybe they're dresses just don't photograph well.

  2. I love all of the ladies looks except for Angela and Tatyana. Angela is my girl but this look left me feeling kinda *ehh almost like she is trying to hard to be sexy now..you know..like how a woman may unbutton a few too many buttons on their shirt to look "sexy" not realizing the "you" make the clothes sexy.
    As for Tatyana she always looks old and tired to me. I pray for her a good makeup, hair and fashion stylist. amen

  3. People where giving Angela a hard time about her dress...I think she looks great. I think the shoes could stand to be different though. I heard she is starting her own line as well, this should be interesting to see. Serena looks good.

  4. Tia is glowing...bless x

  5. As a huge tennis fan, I love how Serena combines athleticism with style!

  6. Why can't we just praise our beautiful sisters--We need to dig real deep--I looked beyond what they are wearing--what I am seeing are their spirits--Go My Beautiful Sisters--

  7. Serena injured one of her foot so I'm guessing she skipped the heels to be safe. Anywho, loving the dress!

    To Anon, this is a fashion blog so of course we're going to comment on what they are wearing and how it is being worn.

  8. Good Read

  9. Tia looks soooo great.
    Shaune Robinson looks gorgeous in that color. I seriously love it.
    I love Angela Simmons but not sold on this look.

  10. I liked all the looks but think Serena could've looked hot"ter" with some heels. Nice, go girls!

    To Anonymous - I agree with Vivi.
    Passing judgment and giving your opinion are not the same thing. It's OK, its not that deep, and if it is for you - I think you're on the wrong website.

  11. Ang is my fave! She is wearing this new hair color like no one else! And Tia is glowing as a soon-to-be mommy :-)

    and lol at Anonymous. These comments are nowhere near hurtful (except for the other Anonymous)


  12. They all look gorgeous. Tia and Tamera don't even look like twins now! I miss Sister Sister :(
