There were some beautiful gowns on some even more beautiful women. We pick our favourite ladies over the page.
Halle Berry in Emilio Pucci. Flawless as usual.
Keisha Knight-Pulliam. Could work on her red carpet posing but holds a special place in our heart as we wanted to be in her TV family.
Vanessa Williams. Fabulous in Desperate Housewives and Ugly Betty. And we liked that song she put out in the 90s.
Angela Bassett. Another one who deserves more recognition than she gets.
Grey’s Anatomy’s Chandra Wilson. Meredith Grey made us stop watching circa Season 2.
Sofia Vergara. A deserving winner.
Tatyana Ali. Still so cute!
Tia Mowry from Sister Sister. Remember that show?!
