Paula Patton’s long and winding road to red carpet redemption kick started at the 5th Annual ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon, held in Beverly Hills yesterday evening.

The hit-or-miss actress stumbled onto a rare hit wearing a white Marchesa cap-sleeve frock with silver embroidery along the bustline – I guess her stylist loves her again.

The glam look was accessorized with silver metallic Giuseppe Zanotti pointed toe pumps and a bright red lippie.

Paula really needed this hit because I had all but given up on her.

I’m also happy to report that she’s finaly dropped the standing on one leg pose.

Do you think she read my letter?
