Jill Scott was a red hot vixen as she hit the purple carpet of last night's Black Women in Music gala presented by Essence Magazine at Greystone Manor Supperclub in Los Angeles, CA.
The Grammy Award winning songstress was stand-out in a goddess draped gown in bold red jersey, accessorized with minimal gold jewelry and side swept hair. Solange Knowles, Estelle, and Real Housewives of Atlanta's Marlo Hampton opted for graphic prints and patterns, while NeNe Leakes and Amber Riley wore monochromatic curve conscious dresses.
Other stars who were spotted at the event included Lianne La Havas; Kelis, Kenny Lattimore, V. Bozeman, Jurnee Smollett, Tamia, LisaRaye, Sharon Leal, Keke Palmer, Eric Benet, Goapele, Leah Labelle, Verdine White of Earth Wind & Fire.
Now in its fourth year, the annual event serves as celebration of the musical achievements of women of color in the music industry---singers and those behind the scenes.[gallery link="file" order="DESC" orderby="title"]
