Jada Pinkett Smith looked absolutely gorgeous when she posed outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre before making an appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman” in New York this week.

The actress was on the show to talk about her new TNT show ‘Hawthorne’ which will the premiere next week.

She also talked about being on the cover of Essence magazine where she’s posing nude. She said that she did it for her daughter Willow, to show empowerment and positive self image.

Still sporting her healthy glow the actress opted to wear a silverly white Sophia Kokosalaki Spring 2010 dress.

Jada has quite a strong look so frilly girlie looks don’t always flatter but this playful bubble hem dress does.

Her look was paired with a gorgeous pair of Pierre Hardy metallic trim platform T-strap sandals.
