The 25th Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood celebration with Moët & Chandon honored the industry’s most fearless and creative women on and offscreen. Guests gathered at the Four Season in Beverly Hills to celebrate a roster of Hollywood A-list honorees.
The evening was a star-studded affair with many of today’s top talent coming to support the amazing group of honorees, including the historic female cast of Black Panther, Lady Gaga, Keira Knightley, Sarah Paulson, Charlize Theron, Mia Farrow (ELLE Legend Award), Shonda Rhimes (L’Oréal ParisLuminary Award), and more. Moët joined ELLE by toasting to their contributions and celebrating 25 years of women making an impact in the world of cinema. Guests celebrated as they sipped personalized-sized Moët Minis from flute toppers and toasted with custom golden goblets of champagne.
Stars were keen to greet the honorees, enjoying Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut in the cocktail room that showcased a timeline of 25 years of powerful women. Cole Sprouse sipped on a Moët Mini as he spotted Chloe Grace Moretz across the room and went in for a big hug before the pair headed to the ballroom with Sasha Lane to get away from the crowd. Shonda Rimes received huge support from her Grey’s Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder cast, including Ellen Pompeo, Camilla Luddington and Aja Naomi King, while Quincy Jones and BET’s Debra L. Lee shared a special moment looking at the timeline of legendary women in film.
Lady Gaga arrived with fiancé Christian Carino and as she greeted Charlize Theron on the carpet, Christian beamed at her from afar. The two arrived as the cocktail part of the evening was ending and snuck a quick kiss before heading into the ballroom. Lady Gaga posed for photos and greeted her fellow honorees. Fashionably late, Jennifer Lopez (alongside A-Rod) arrived for a last-minute stop on the carpet before presenting to Lady Gaga, while Sandra Bullock snuck through the kitchen as the dinner began, pausing in the ballroom doorway to listen to the speech before heading into the event.
Additional leading ladies such as Laverne Cox, Kate Beckinsale, Vanessa Hudgens, Natasha Lyonne, Holland Taylor, Molly Sims, Alexandra Shipp, Debby Ryan, Leslie Grossman, Tika Sumpter, Laura Harrier, Alice Eve, Sofia Carson, and more all came out to show their support.
