ON THE SCENE: YBF Ladies Do Essence's Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

​ ​ ​ ​

YBF L.A. correspondents Shannan and Tallie caught up with the YBF Hollywood chicks at today's Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon in at the Beverly Hills Hotel. And we've got the first pics of the ladies as we chatted it up with them during their arrivals. It was a "Soul Food" movie/show reunion as Malinda Williams and Vanessa Williams hit the luncheon and snapped pics together. This is Malinda's first outing since the announcement of her divorce from D-Nice. And she looked fabulous in her Nicole Miller dress and longer hair. Cute dress for Vanessa too. More of our pics when you read the rest...

Two of our fave gals KeKe Palmer and Kyla Pratt looked fabulous.

Gabby Sidibe chatted it up with us.

Keri Hilson--rocking an interesting swooped braid/bob and Marc Jacobs threads--stood out in a bedazzled jacket.

Kimberly ELise made her way to the event.

Not loving Joy Bryant's look. A metallic blue skirt (by Rachel Roy) paired with a leather jacket (by Express) and tights just don't do it for me. Looks confused.

Tatyana Ali got sexy chic in a plunging V deep aquamarine dress.

Victoria Rowell pubbed her brand new book Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva on the red carpet. Loves her.

Vivica rocked a sparkling Naeem Khan dress.

And honoree Cicely Tyson and Viola Davis hit the carpet. Wow at Ms. Cicely's church hat. But we not saying nothin' bad about Ms. Cicely.  Nothin' I say.  *holds tongue* This is an amazing event for Black women in Hollywood and everyone deserves the honors they're getting. YBF indeed. Stay tuned for more pics...

for you guy who says her

for you guy who says her dress isnt age appropriate.... shes a teenager growing into a young lady okay... she doesnt want to be considered as a child anymore apparently... I think the way you dress and carry yourself have something to do with the type of movie roles you get and she doesnt want little kid roles anymore... to me she dress nice...you dont see her behind out.... shes articulate everytime I hear her speck (cant say that about other celebs who are older than her who cant keep up a conversation to save their lives and want to rigde the teeny bopper train eventhought theyre 30 and 40 *side eye beyonce and mariah carey*.... she cant be a teenager forever guys... shes growing up and that dress is appropriate... it seems like people dont want to let her grow
