The first star to take the plunge was actress Meagan Good, who looked stunning in an emerald green dress with a double-dose of sexiness with a daring slit and a plunging neckline. Gabrielle Union also turned heads as she debuted a brand new hairdo of long braids and looked lovely in a one-shoulder dress with a sexy slit.

Bright dresses were also a hot trend for the evening with stars like Mya and Andra Day opting for show-stopping colors like tangerine and bright yellow.

The gents didn't disappoint, either. "Empire" hunk Bryshere Gray was our favorite dapper gent in a slick, white dinner jacket and tuxedo pants. Anthony Anderson also out on a strong showing in a tuxedo.
