The Essence Black Women in Hollywood event is one of our favorites!
The 10th annual awards gala took place in Beverly Hills on Thursday, bringing out some of the most beautiful and accomplished women in Hollywood right now.

Janelle Monae, Gabrielle Union, and Laverne Cox were some of the biggest names hitting the
red light gray carpet and looking fabulous.
Janelle's white tuxedo with black and yellow piping was probably our fave, but Gabrielle in her black embellished dress and Laverne all in lace looked incredible too! We especially appreciate Gabby's old-fashioned vibe.
Also attending were Tracee Ellis Ross, Viola Davis, and Tina Lawson, all of whom simply glowed!
Sex scenes get even the most professional actors flustered!
Laverne Cox admitted as much during an interview with People, where she explained that love scenes are never easy.

Of her scenes in new CBS series Doubt, the actress said:
"I was super nervous. I think it's always weird when you're, like, having to make out and make ‘love' or get intimate with someone that you're not intimate with. You want to make sure everyone's comfortable."
The 32-year-old was also worried how costar and love interest Ben Lawson would react to kissing a transgender woman, saying:
Musicians love to use their large platforms for the greater good of the world — and the artists who showed up at this year's Grammys were no exception.
In what might have been the most politically infused awards show yet, famous faces did not shy away from making their opinions against orange POTUS Donald Trump heard. Some even tried to get away with pro-Trump shit — but TBH, no one was having that AT ALL.

Laverne Cox ALWAYS talks about stanning for Beyoncé — and last night she finally got to meet the iconic singer in the flesh at the Grammys!
Taking to Instagram to document the moment she met her idol (above), the 32-year-old penned a series of captions saying:
"This finally happened. I was so beside myself with joy, wonderment and awe of the majestic that is the queen I forgot to hold in my stomach and give you face. But I met #QueenBey y'all. #Grammys"

And while reminiscing on the evening, Miz Cox shared a video from Bey's stunning performance:

Meanwhile, Rihanna and Laverne Cox were all about flashing skin in more obvious ways! Yass, girls!
They weren't the only ones flashing cleavage and thigh though!
