The honoree of the night slayed the carpet before the big Essence Black Women In Music event held at AVALON Hollywood.  Rocking a blue lace and ribbed knee length dress and colorful shoes, actress and singer Jill Scott kept it all the way fabulous last night.

Her supporters in the industry made their way to the carpet as well:

The ladies of "The Real" -- sans Tamar Braxton -- hit the carpet.  Tamera Mowry and that cute baby bump of hers, plus co-hosts Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon got all glammed up for the event.

And the newly engaged Adrienne showed off her new rock.  Not mad at all.

Brandy was there to take the stage.  But beforehand, she posed it up in this hot Stella McCartney number.  Loves it.  Sleek and chic.

Singer/actress Zendaya Coleman rocked a fun and funky look that we're shocked we're loving.  She made polka dots and mixed graphics work.  The Sergio Hudson look was comprised of a hand painted polka dot body suit and a color blocked pencil skirt.  You feelin' it?

Awww it's Shaniece and Flex Alexander...still smiling after 15 years of marriage.  The twosome have a docu-series show on the OWN channel showing their financial ups and downs.

And the sexy black cut-out dress was all over the carpet last night:

Maybelline model Jessica White showed off as many body parts as she could.  But looking like she does, she can totally do that.  Her dress was a Celia Kritharioti 'Haute Couture' creation with the designer's signature clutch.

Even Tasha Smith, who's currently starring on "Empire", got into the cut-out trend with her sexy look last night.  Probably showing her estranged husband what he's missing....

Actress/singer Kat Graham rocked a black and white printed suit and a coifed new haircut (or wiggery).  Can't decide how we feel about it all....

And the singers/actresses who have become reality stars:

"RHOA" star and "Let's Stay Together" actress Demetria McKinney showed off her look -- A top and skirt from TopShop, Jimmy Choo shoes and a Bottega Veneta clutch.  Wonder if her stylist will catch anymore flack from shady Phae Phae.

"Girlfriends" star turned "Hollywood Divas: LA" star Golden Brooks rocked a crop top and pencil skirt look.

Y'all already know Golden's co-star Elise Neal stays ready to hop up on a stage if someone calls.  She's got to stay ready for that world tour if she ever decides to go on one....
