Beauty and brains!!

As she accepted her Best Breakthrough Performance Award in a white-hot Giambattista Valli outfit (styled with Sophia Webster pumps, Neil Lane jewelry, and an Elie Saab clutch), the actress recalled her struggle with self-image as a youth.

Leona Lewis Is Lookin’ Blue At The Essence Black Women In Music Reception!

Leona Lewis chooses one wrong accessory at the Essence Black Women In Music reception!

The color blue looks soooo good on her!!

Leona Lewis hit the red carpet at Essence’s Black Women In Music Reception in Los Angeles on Wednesday, where she wore a one-shoulder royal blue frock paired with Jeffrey Campbell heels.

We only wish she hadn’t rocked the wide metallic belt, because if it wasn’t for that, her outfit would’ve been much better!

The silver shade didn't really match the rest of her ensemble, and the width of the belt didn't quite look right.

At least the talented musician’s hair and makeup were TOTES stunning, and her box clutch was chic as well!!

We really don’t get to see Emeli Sandé enough!

Luckily for us, the ferosh crooner showed up to the 5th annual Essence Black Women In Music event in West Hollywood on Wednesday.

Guess she kind of had to, being the honoree and all. LOLz!

Sparkling like the star she is, Emeli wore an embellished black frock, splitting our attention between the beading and her fantastic stems!

And instead of going the expected route with black heels, she opted for fabby, midnight blue sandals.

Emeli definitely delivered!

Two-toned, too fabulous!!

Michelle Williams hit the step-and-repeat in a chic one-piece at the 5th annual Essence Black Women In Music event in WeHo on Wednesday.

The former Destiny’s Child singer donned a short-sleeved, tuxedo-esque black and white jumpsuit, which was sassy while also being classy. LOLz!

Though we could have done with a little less bagginess in the trousers, just to show off Michelle's slim figure better.

Oh well.

At least the black Christian Louboutin heels and sleek locks polished off her outfit nicely.

Thoughts???
