Kicking off NYFW, amfAR hosted its annual gala at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC last night (February 7th). The annual soiree honors and recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Taraji P. Henson, who was tapped to host, was a total showstopper when she hit the red carpet. The Proud Mary star flossed her curves in a sequin David Koma gown that featured a plunging neckline. The mermaid style gown was the perfect balance of sexy and classy.

By the way, Proud Mary is still in theaters, so go see it if you haven't yet.

We’re still in the dead of winter, but LaLa Anthony is serving up springtime vibes. The “Power” star posed it up in a lavender Naeem Khan dress. Are we feeling it?

While on the carpet, the YBF actress gushed to ET about Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner’s baby, Stormi.

"The picture was absolutely gorgeous!" she shared. "The baby's name is absolutely amazing and I'm so happy for all of them. It's just an amazing time for the family, I'm happy for all of them."

Y'all know she's one of the family's besties...for whatever reason.
