2nd Annual Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Kerry Washington look Fab-u-lous wearing Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 ensemble, which consisted of a black blazer, a silver and gold metallic obi belt, and a black feathered skirt.

Like I said at the end of last year, Kerry was one of the most consistent actresses to walk the red carpet in 2008.

Many of you argued that she didn’t take enough risks. I would say that looks to be changing in 2009, because there are no safe options from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 collection.

Kerry did not opt for the runway shoes. Instead she wore a pair of leopard print pumps that worked perfectly. ?

Halle Berry was equally impressive wearing a strapless nude Reem Acra Spring 2009 dress, with a gold metallic floral print.

I loved this dress, but the large folded detail at the back was a little too much for my liking.

She completed her look with gold matching Christian Louboutin slingbacks.

After visiting Gustavo Cadile on Thursday, I was really excited to see that Sanaa Lathan was wearing a dress I had seen in his studio.

The gorgeous chocolate dress, had a mesh overlay with stunning embroidered details, and sequins to give it some sparkle.

The dress was further decorated with a dark pink bowed sash at the waist, and smaller bows on the shoulders.

She completes her look with matching pumps, and a Mary Norton clutch.

GORGEOUS.

I am not crazy about Taraji P. Henson’s make-up, but I do like her Zac Posen dress. Very appropriate for ‘Ladies Who Lunch’.

Tia Mowry opted for a colourful dress with a lot of pizazz.

Tichina Arnold wore a black suit, with a ruffled hemmed skirt, but forgot to put a blouse under her jacket.

Her look was complete with YSL two tone heels.

Vivica A. Fox wore a gorgeous navy dress, with a stunning embellished neckline and pocket detailing.

She wore her dress with Balenciaga heels.

Garcelle Beauvious opted for a black dress with a textured white front bib, which she wore with black peep-toes.

Lauren London in all black with a white Chanel purse.

Tatyana Ali’s exotic gown seems a bit much for this event.

    halle looks fabulous minus the back of the dress.

    sanaa (looks like ashanti a little bit) gorgeous dress absolutely gorgeous.

    taraji looks great, but im with you on the make-up not liking it much.

    tia one of few that added colour to the event, she looks great.

    tichina normally the suit jacket and no blouse is a tacky, but i like it on her, especially since her boobs arent bulging at the middle, rying to escape. gorgeous.

    vivica looks great, but im hating her hair. i want those shoes so badly.

    garcelle is vert pretty nice dress.

    lauren, only thing i like is her purse.

    tatyana, it is a bit much but it adds colour to what seems to be a boring black, white and grey event.
