Busy Prints, Drapes and Biz Casual at the Essence Women in Hollywood Luncheon


Essence hosted its annual Women in Hollywood luncheon on Thursday in Beverly Hills, where Oprah held all the secrets of the world in her tiny little lenses. More flowy looks and busy prints from Zendaya, Tracee Ellis Ross and more below.

Not feeling this sheer black-and-nude dress on Keke Palmer but love her twists. Tika Sumpter looks a tad too wedding-formal, and Thandie Newton went for a simple, cute leather skirt and t-shirt combo.

Nate Parker and Chris Rock look dad-ish, while Evan Ross tried something casual with a sleepwear shirt under a blazer. Still can’t get over that mustache.

Zendaya flourished effortlessly as usual in a polka dot going-out pajama with a coverup.

Jurnee Smolett chose a perfect silhouette, but Holly Robinson Peete and Letoya Luckett are giving me Real Housewives vaca looks.

Aja Naomi King, Meagan Good (in a weird train) and Issa Rae opted for eye-catching prints.

Tia Mowry’s mismatched patterns aren’t meshing but could be cool separately. Yvette Nicole Brown looks snazzy.

Kelly Rowland is perfect.

Shonda Rhimes is really the queen of boardroom couture.

Master of None’s Lena Waithe paired her print with a cool suit. My only response to Serayah McNeill’s outfit is Um… Evelyn Lozada wore this outfit like everyday on Basketball Wives.

Not one of my favorite Tracee Ellis Ross looks, but she always manages to look stunning either way.
