Making for the third running of the annual showcase, BET's 2012 Black Girls Rock! celebration was taped during a ceremony held in New York City on Saturday night (October 13).
With the festivities going down at the Paradise Theater, the red carpet arrivals area was packed with star power as famous ladies like Eva Longoria, La La Anthony, Meagan Good, Keyshia Cole and Star Power Award recipient Taraji P. Henson mingled amongst one another while waiting for hosts Tracee Ellis Ross and Regina King to get the proceedings underway.
The show aims to “celebrate the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film, and also honors individuals or groups who promote social justice through creative endeavors,” and this year’s NAACP Image Awards nominees have been announced.
