Some of the ladies dished up business advice all women should follow, and 16-year-old Yara is wise beyond her years.  The "blackish" star, who posed it up with her on-screen parents, told Elle:

"It's all about the art. I've done guest roles and been in movies, but being a series regular is so different. There's no hopping in and out of a project. But what clears my mind is that I'm here to act. That's why they pay, so that's what I'm going to do."

Good mindset to have in this emotional roller coaster of an industry.

Vivica Fix matched the carpet in this green three-piece suit ensemble.  The Independence Day star had some business advice for the ladies as well saying:

"Make sure you have your own money to invest in yourself. Whether that's for a passion project or you want to get into branding, invest in yourself. Or get investors who really believe in you. No one can ever take it away from you then."

Yes aunt Viv!

Niecy Nash powered through in all red, telling ladies a valuable message about understanding the BUSINESS of showbusiness:

"The most important is that it is a business. It's not a friendship and you need to get everything in writing. I learned that the hard way. It's not show friends; it's show business. You have to be about the business. Some people want the shiny parts – the glitz and the glamour – but the business part is where the money is. That's where the better parts of things will live for you."

Preach, Niecy!

The "Scream Queens" star snapped some selfies with "How To Get Away With Murder" star Aja Naomi King:

We're OBSESSED with Aja's look for the night!  She killed it in this Toni Maticevski blouse and skirt, paired with black Louboutin heels for a chic black and white ensemble.  The Birth of a Nation star is becoming quite the fashionista at these red carpet events.
