The #BlackGirlMagic was in full effect at a special event in L.A. last night that honored four black women who have played (even currently) a Bond girl, including Halle Berry, Naomie Harris, Trina Parks and Gloria Hendry. More inside….
Last night in L.A....
Former “Extant” star Halle Berry made her first red carpet appearance since filing a divorce from her estranged husband Olivier Martinez after two years of marriage. She has been spotted out and about since the divorce filing, but last night was her first appearance in an official capacity. And we must say....she looks great.
The 49-year-old Hollywood vet made her way to the Black Women of Bond Tribute held at the California African American Museum to be recognized for her role as a former 007 star. She obviously isn't letting the drama surrounding her ex-husband David Justice keep her down. If you missed it, find out how he dragged her on social media HERE.
Hosted by the African American Film Critics Association, Halle, Naomie Harris (who’s starring in the upcoming 007 flick Spectre), actress/dancer Trina Parks (atop, left) and actress Gloria Hendry (atop, right) were all honored Tuesday evening reuniting all the black Bond girls under one roof.
Naomie, who's starring as Miss Moneypenny, has been super busy these days working the promo trail for the upcoming action thriller Spectre, set to hit theaters on Friday. After slaying at the Mexico premiere the night before, the 39-year-old British beauty popped up on the carpet rocking a bold red number accented with floral designs.
The YBF Bond chicks then posed alongside one another for a picture perfect photo-op.
Girlfriends Getaway 2 starlet Garcelle Beauvais lit up the carpet in her silver sequin trousers paired with a black suede blazer. She looks beautiful.
Keeping with her all white signature look, “Single Ladies” star Lisa Raye worked the carpet in an all-white dress topped with a white laser-cut cardigan.
"R&B Divas" star and singer Chante Moore came out to support.
“Hollywood Divas” star Elise Neal switched up her look opting for a cropped coif. She finished her look rocking a black tuxedo dress and black thigh-high boots.
Inside, Halle and Naomie looked on as they were being honored for their black girl power:
Then they took the stage to say a few words and thank everyone for the honor:
Loves it. Congrats to all the ladies!
Spectre hits theaters Friday, November 6th.
