Variety gathered some of the most exceptional female luminaries for its 11th Annual Power of Women luncheon held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons in Los Angeles on Friday night.
The event, which was presented by Lifetime and sponsored by Audi and MoroccaOil, celebrated the voices and influence of women in the community. Mariah Carey, Jennifer Aniston, Brie Larson, and Awkwafina were among those who were honored at the luncheon for their philanthropic achievements.
These bold and powerful women, as well as other A-list guests, served up some serious but elegant looks on the carpet.
1. Mariah Carey Glams Up in Open-Toe Heels
Mariah Carey, who was recognized for her work with Fresh Air Fund’s Camp Mariah, was elegant as usual in her Alexandre Vauthier long black dress.
The floor-sweeping long-sleeved gown was glistening with crystal embellishments and features a draped plunging neckline that puts her cleavage on display.

The 49-year-old singer simply let her hair down in waves, while her makeup flawlessly accentuated her features with peachy blush, lip shade, and eyeshadow.

The Songbird Supreme kept the rest of her look simple. She only selected several rings and a pair of minimal open-toe sandals to complete her look.

The 30-year-old actress opted for a more playful look for the event. She slipped in a color-block shirt dress in cobalt blue, white and yellow with a huge ruffle detail on the pocket from Pyer Moss’ Spring 2020 collection.

The dress was already interesting enough but the Crazy Rich Asians star decided not to hold back in the accessories department.
She styled her look with a tiny square yellow handbag from Edie Parker, pearl drop earrings from Singapore-based jewelry brand State Property, and showed off her feet in Sam Edelman mules.
