The Essence Black Women in Hollywood Oscars Luncheon went down on Thursday afternoon and brought out the best in the business when it comes to serving up style, grace, and sisterhood. So many of our favorite ladies turned up for the annual event at the Regent Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills that #BlackGirlMagic would be an understatement at best.

Check out some of the beautiful black women (and a few men too) who attended the star-studded event sponsored by Ford.
