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.
