Last night, Jada Pinkett hosted the 15th Annual From Slavery to Freedom Event. The evening honored business leaders, volunteers, donors and students who are invested in social and systemic changes that aim to end modern-day slavery. You'll recall that Jada has done several PSAs about human trafficking and other forms of modern-day slavery as the issue is close to her heart.

Jada's fashionably eccentric daughter, Willow, supported her at the event, held at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles.  The younger Smith turned heads on the red carpet in a stripped pantsuit with a cropped leather jacket and bowler hat.

Jada, who wore a salmon-colored trouser suit, was also supported by singer Nicole Scherzinger, who attended in a sexy white slash-neck midi dress, which she belted at the waist.

After the event, Jada continued her efforts to raise awareness, tweeting her followers, "The #antislavery stats matter b/c they represent real people. We need to share stories that show stats AND dignify survivors. #DSBChat.'"

In other news about Jada, she's set to produce a romantic drama called Salsa, starring the William Levy, who's known as "the Cuban Brad Pitt."

And in television performances....

Alicia Keys appeared on "American Idol" last night where she sang "Tears Always Win".  Apparently, the singer was a nervous before she hit the stage to performed the Bruno Mars-penned tune tweeting, “Looking at the audience is giving me butterflyz!!!. Feels like I’m trying out for the show too!!!”  But Ms. Keys had no need to worry, her vocals were amazing and we're sure she got America's vote!

I honestly looks like Willow Smith is so over it. She truly just wants to be a kid and do kid things. The pictures did not turn out to be cute because of Willow's demeanor. Pics wouldve been perfect had she smiled.

I recently saw of picture of

I recently saw of picture of Jada as a child on Lipstick Alley and she was such an adorable babydoll, I guess when you're not as pretty as mom or big sis you go the weird strange route like Solange! Untradionally pretty does not always mean you are ugly and it does not mean you have to turn to drastic measures of being or looking ODD or BAZAAR!
