The Ebony 100 Gala took place Monday night in New York City, and as you can imagine the red carpet was filled with tons of bold and beautiful black folks. Some of the country's top movers and shakers stepped out in style to fete the accomplishments of nation’s most influential African-Americans, as picked by the Ebony staff.

While Motown Records founder Berry Gordy was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award, NBA legend and entrepreneur Earvin "Magic" Johnson, funnyman Nick Cannon, actress Condola Rashad, chef Marcus Samuelsson and actor/activist Harry Belafonte, were also among the 100 honorees this year.

Long story short, it was a super fabulous evening!

Here's a look at all the fabulous attendees and honorees working the red carpet before heading into the gala.
