Jurnee Smollett made a dazzling entrance at Elle’s 29th annual Women In Hollywood event on Monday night. The Emmy-nominated actress joined a host of A-listers at The Getty Center in Los Angeles. The event honored several industry superstars including, Issa Rae, Anne Hathaway, Olivia Wilde, Sydney Sweeney, Ariana DeBose and many others.

Smollett oozed elegant glamour as she arrived in a black sequin dress. The sparkling piece had a plunging sweetheart neckline, pointy shoulder pads, and long fitted sleeves.

To place more emphasis on her ensemble, Smollett parted her hair on the side and let her curly tresses cascade on her shoulder.

When it came down to shoes, Smollett tied her outfit together with a set of black pointed-toe pumps. The patent silhouette had a shiny triangular pointed-toe and sat atop a thin stiletto heel. Dark-pointed pumps remain as one of the most versatile and timeless shoe styles. The slip-on silhouette matches a variety of looks easily, while the suede construction proves both luxe and durable.
