Style and Substance: Essence and Target Honor Black Women in Hollywood

We still can’t stop gushing over last week’s Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon. The guest list alone was enough to make us giddy!

Former Essence beauty editor Mikki Taylor hosted the Beverly Hills Hotel bash, which recognized black women who have made significant achievements on and off screen, including Oprah, Gabrielle Union, Alfre Woodard, Mara Brock Akil, Naomie Harris and Quvenzhané Wallis. Target’s very own Laysha Ward was there to congratulate and honor these commendable women.

As the exclusive retail sponsor of the event, Target was honored to help bring together African-American women who embody beauty, style and substance. Target Style Correspondent Tai Beauchamp was on the gold carpet to speak with Oprah Winfrey at the luncheon. Take a look, below!
