2. Taraji P. Henson – Empire star Taraji P. Henson tastefully flashed the flesh in her custom Vera Wang gown with an ultra high slit.
3. Lupita Nyong’o – It’s safe to say that the 35-year-old Black Panther actress paid ode to the Wakandan goddess she is in this shimmering Atelier Versace gown.
4. Margot Robbie – Looking glamorous in white, the I, Tonya star donned a Chanel Haute Couture gown with beaded straps draped along the neckline and arms.
