The Kennedy Center held its 2017 national celebration of the arts in Washington, D.C., on Sunday night, and it was a star-studded affair. This year, Carmen de Lavallade, Gloria Estefan, LL Cool J, Norman Lear and Lionel Richie were awarded at the Kennedy Center Honors for their lifetime achievement in music, dance and entertainment.

Nicole Richie was on hand to support her father. The actress and designer hit the red carpet in an elegant Zac Posen embroidered gown, which hid her Gianvito Rossi heels.
