The Paley Center For Media Hosts A Tribute To African-American Achievements In Television

The Paley Center For Media Hosts A Tribute To African-American Achievements In Television

The Paley Center for Media hosted a tribute to African-American achievements in television on Wednesday (May 13) at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

Kerry Washington: The ‘Scandal’ actress, who has been on a roller coaster ride of red carpet hits and misses, relied on the ubiquitous see-through trend to get by at the event. The netted Self-Portrait black frock was a more vampy entrance for Kerry, so I’m glad she completely embraced it with an oxblood lip.

Gabrielle Union: Significantly sunnier, Gabrielle’s Rosie Assoulin yellow frock was a delightfully radiant colour for her, although I wish the top half of the dress fit a bit more seamlessly. She accessorized the look with Nikos Koulis jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti embellished black heels.

Uzo Aduba: The dramatic nature of this Bibhu Mohapatra Resort 2015 gown with a silhouetted black vine motif was a beautiful look for the actress. Enough was enough when it came to the length of the dress and train, though, falling a bit too long as she stood amidst a sea of diaphanous fabric.

Brandy Norwood: Recently making her Broadway debut in ‘Chicago,’ the star showed off her shoulders in a shimmery black halter gown that was elegantly chic if nothing special. All attention was on her enviable toned arms anyway.

    I love the yellow and the gold against Gabrielle’s skin and black hair. And I refuse to believe that Kerry would be caught in this anywhere on this planet, including the privacy of her bedroom.

    Gabrielle is my favorite…fresh and modern. Kerry looks bored.

    Is Brandy’s dress torn? I like Kerry’s dress but wish the bandeau was a tiny bit bigger and Uzo, as usual, looks great.

    My favourite is Gabrielle, but I also like Kerry and Uzo’s looks.

    Uzo looks the best here. I think she looks lovely.

    I like Gabrielle’s look. She looks pretty.

    Kerry, Gabrielle and Uzo look great, but not memorable.

    Brandy’s arms look scary more than anything to me, so much so I didn’t even notice what she was wearing. I love Gabrielle’s dress but why the black accessories? Such an odd choice. Kerry struck another miss for me. She looks like she’s wearing a vampire net.

    Uzo looks nice

    I don’t like any of these dresses but Kerry’s is the worst. Brandi looks like a skeleton.

    Four examples of when boring dresses happen on beautiful women. In fact, their hair and makeup all look really pretty here.
