*Shining Stars*

Essence magazine held it's 3rd annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon yesterday at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. Five outstanding African-American actresses were honored for their contributions to the magical world of film and entertainment. Among the honored were the Newcomer, Gaborey Sidibe; the Enduring, Mary J. Blige; the Multi-Threat, Queen Latifah; the Modern Muse, Zoe Saldana; and the Legend, Cicely Tyson. Although there were too many beauties to capture, I feel honored and compelled to showcase a few...
...Some blossomed with breathtaking beauty...
( Honoree Cicely Tyson - So Pretty!!)

...then there were the dynamic duos...
(Nia Long & Malinda Williams)
(Tamera & Tia Mowry)

...and others cast their own shining light on the scene...
(Keri Hilson)
(Honoree Zoe Saldana)
(Model Tomiko Fraser)
All were fresh-faced and sparkly, either with jewels, attire, or just plain old personality. Congratulations to each beautiful honoree and to Essence for, once again, spotlighting phenomenal women of color!
