It was a "Girlfriends" reunion on last night's pink carpet! Jill Marie Jones, Persia White, Tracee Ellis Ross and Golden Brooks looked their usual fab selves as they reunited to present the Shot Caller Award to the show's creator, Mara Brock Akil. Mara also gave a tearful and heartfelt speech in acceptance.
Golden & Jiil--aka Maya and Toni--posed it up and showed that black girls just get better with age.
Persia, who recently starred on "Vampire Diaries", kept it simple and chic in this flowy grey dress.
And Tracee kept it edgy in all black as she posed it up with her good friend Regina King. Both served as hosts of the show.
Mariah Carey hit the stage rocking a midriff baring top and
embellished maxi skirt as she presented the Living Legend award to Patti
When Ms. Patti stopped Mariah from walking off stage and asked her to
"hold her award", MiMi told her about her arm being "a little weak."
Ms. Patti snapped back and told her to hold that ish anyway. Hilar!
Kelly Rowland and her sheer pants posed it up with her celeb trainer
and workout DVD partner, Jeanette Jenkins, and Jeanette's little
Goddaughter Ada. How precious! Teaching the little ones early how much
Kelly also switched it up to hit the stage with Sevyn Streeter.
Best Man Holiday actress Nia Long flaunted those post baby
curves in a skin tight black dress, with her engagement ring and a bold
red lip to boot. Chick i making 42 look like 32....

And that Award was presented by the gorge (and newly coiffed with a pixie cut) Jennifer Hudson.
Tennis champ Venus Williams kept it extra colorful in a floral strapless dress...and these multicolored braids.
