The who’s who of African American women in Hollywood were all in attendance, and they each brought life to the red carpet with their own personal, colorful flair.

Colors were worn with a vengeance, from bright yellows, to ripe oranges, hot pinks and several shades of green. The red carpet dripped with haute couture, radiant glamour, and lots of sophisticated sex appeal.
