Black Girls Rock 2012: Stars Get All Dolled Up For The Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

A who's who list of Hollywood's biggest and brightest black starlets stepped out on Saturday night for the 2012 Black Girls Rock event.

Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson, Eva Longoria and Meagan Good are just a few of the celebs that were on hand to celebrate the organization, founded by DJ Beverly Bond, which aims to empower and mentor young women of color, while also promoting a positive portrayal of black women in the media.

This year's show was hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross and Regina King. The star-studded night included performances by Brandy, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, Missy Elliott and India Arie.

"Scandal" actress Kerry Washington, Alicia Keys and Janelle Monae were among the list of women that were honored. And while there was plenty to celebrate as far as the amazing contributions these women have made in their careers, communities and beyond--they also proved their status as style stars.

Glitzy gowns, sexy cocktail dresses and even a few feathered pieces filled the red carpet. Our favorite looks included Taraji's skin-tight gold frock, LaLa Anthony's velvet Balmain mini dress and a cleavage-baring gown worn by Ms. Keyshia Cole.

You'll have to tune into BET on November 4 to see the full show--but in the meantime check out all the fabulous fashion moments in the slideshow below.
