EBONY's 2022 Power 100 gala, held at Milk Studios in Los Angeles, brought out Black Hollywood's stylish set of luminaries, innovators and thought leaders. The evening’s host Amber Ruffin—who captivated the crowd with her 4 dazzling outfit changes—filled the night with laughs, cries and positive vibes. But before we dive into the gala, let’s talk about the style. As we know, Black folks love to get dressed up, and at EBONY’s event, they did not disappoint. They came outfitted in their most striking finery for EBONY’s black-tie affair. Best believe, they did not come to play—they were working it all evening long!

A-list celebs such as Issa Rae sauntered down the red carpet—which was white that evening—in a stunning red gown and had her hair braided up in a neat bun. Our girl crush Nia Long, whose smooth complexion is always radiant and flawless, presented her with the EBONY Power 100 People's Choice Award. 

We also couldn’t get enough of the Emmy Award-winning actress and comedian Quinta Brunson, who flitted about in an ethereal purple princess gown. Or the cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever who ate up the carpet and left no crumbs!
