It was a star-studded affair at The Paley Center's Hollywood Tribute To African-American Achievements In Television event last night. And it brought out the likes of Brandy, Regina King, Tyra Banks, YaYa DaCosta and many more YBFers. Get your black star power fix inside….

The #BlackGirlMagic was in full effect last night at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. The Paley Center for Media hosted its second annual Hollywood Tribute to African-American Achievements in Television (presented by JPMorgan Chase & Co.) and it brought out some of the biggest YBF names in Hollywood. The event was put together to highlight the deserving accomplishments and to illustrate the enormous impact of African-Americans across every genre of television, from news/talk and music to sports, drama, and comedy.

The evening also included a salute to Black Entertainment Television’s (BET) 35th anniversary and also commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act and television’s role as a pivotal platform for addressing important issues, breaking down barriers, and creating social change.

R&B singer and actress Brandy put on a classic display in a blue and white Elisabetta Franchi dress and blue Jimmy Choo pumps. Her bob with a bang topped off her Chinese-inspired look.

The YBF chick is currently gearing up to star in a brand new BET scripted romantic comedy series “Zoe Ever After,” which premieres in January 2016.

While ratings for her new talk show the "FABLife” aren’t the best and rumors are circulating that it could get the axe, that hasn’t stopped Tyra Banks from putting on a calm and collected front. She posed it up on the carpet last night in long sleeve black and white jumpsuit while smizing for the cameras. 

If you haven't heard, the current Cyle of "America's Next Top Model" will be the last. No more Tyra Mail. Bummer.
