4th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

The 4th Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon took place at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California last night.

Kerry Washington looked very much like a ‘lady who lunches’ wearing a beige floral print belted Vivienne Westwood dress.

Her gorgeous sweetheart neckline dress had a draped detail from the shoulders.

Wavy hair, silver jewels, an ivory clutch and nude Louboutin’s completed her look.

Gorgeous Oscar nominee Viola Davis looked picture perfect at this event wearing a black David Meister dress.

Her classic black textured cocktail dress with jeweled neckline was paired with black pumps and a matching clutch.

Jennifer Hudson continues to inspire us all to head to the gym, flaunting her svelte wearing a violet Roland Mouret dress.

Her figure hugging dress was paired with Jimmy Choo suede pumps.

I absolutely adore Kerry’s look.

    Kerry still looks chic is a lady-who-lunches look- that look is tricky because it can make you like 55. Viola Davis can easily look 27, so I don’t understand why she is wearing a 57 David Meester dress.
    Jennifer Hudson look gorgeous, bringing sexiness to this posh Roland Mouret dress.

    I’m glad to see Viola on the red carpet again, she is always so radiant, even when wearing black

    Jennifer Hudson looks fabulous! I adore this color on her.
    Kerry Washington looks lovely, as well as Viola Davis, but it seems that her make-up is a couple of shades too light for her.

    Jennifer looks amazing! That dress was made for her! All three ladies are so stunning.

    Viola looks so pretty! They all do, but it’s Viola that stands out for me. And wow, Jennifer Hudson is looking very svelte!

    I am not a fan of Kerry Washington. She bores me most of the time but not this time. She looks pretty, and I love the dress with the pinkish shoes.
    Viola’s dress is pretty as well, but I think that a lighter footwear choice would have been better. The dress is already heavy so it needed a lighter shoe.
    Jennifer looks great in the dress, but I hate the Barbie doll hair extensions. They are too obvious.

    Jennifer looks amazing but Kerry looks so beautiful!

    Wow, they all look so great and so different from each other. I love that they’ve each chosen something that expresses a bit of personality and suits them so well.

    All of the ladies look absolutely beautiful!

    I think they all look lovely!
