Paula Patton & Kerry Washington: 'Essence' Honorees!

Paula Patton and Kerry Washington are white hot at the 2012 Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon held at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday (February 23) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Kerry, 35, who is Essence‘s March cover girl, and Paula, 36, were both honored at the event, which highlights stars “who, through their work, have helped illuminate positive images of Black women worldwide.”

Oscar nominee Octavia Spencer, Pam Grier, and Grey’s Anatomy creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes were also this year’s honorees at the luncheon.

FYI: Paula paired her Marchesa dress with Giuseppe Zanotti heels. She accessorized with a J/Hadley ring, Kara Ackerman bangle, and Dalla Nonna earrings.

  • Hey

    Why Kerry is always acting like she’s the first lady or something?
    Why is she even relevant? Paula is even worse as an actress.
    It’s black history month keep them coming randomly to satisfy your annual white guilt I guess (Viola Davis, Nicki Minaj, Octavia Spencer, Chris Brown, Will Smith, Halle Berry, Whitney Houston, Pharrell Wiliams, Beyonce…).
