Our favorite female celebs stylishly celebrated the power of the 'She' at ELLE's 19th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration last night in Beverly Hills.

Octavia Spencer looked elegant in an emerald green lace dress with a sensuous plunging back. The Academy Award-winning actress paired her jewel toned frock with gold dangling earrings and a classic pointed toe pump.

Her ensemble was a perfect follow up to the release of her new movie "Smashed" and her fabulous cover for ELLE's October issue. Last year Octavia was captivating audience's with her role as Minny in "The Help" and this year "Smashed" was a Sundance favorite andalready getting Oscar buzz. Octavia's success is proof that there is definitely a place for curvy girls in Hollywood.

And great co-stars think alike. "The Help" actress Viola Davis was also on hand for the festivities and continues to embrace uniqueness with her fiery natural hair. She opted for a white mod inspired shift dress paired with brightly hued blue Mary Jane pumps.

Viola has plenty to celebrate. Her newest movie "Wont' Back Down" was released last month and she's set to star in the film "Beautiful Creatures," which hits theaters in February.
