Elle Women in Television Celebration

As you’d expect, the annual Elle celebration of women in television was packed with famous faces and beautiful dresses. This is the fourth annual event, designed to highlight and praise the best and brightest female TV stars of the year.

Sarah Hyland wore a beautiful white cut-away dress and bold pink lipstick, while Lena Dunham opted for a dark floral print loose-fitting dress. They are pictured here with Robbie Myers, Elle editor-in-chief and host of the event. Some of the top names in 2014 and 2015 TV were also present, including Nina Dobrev in a sheer black and nude top with black trousers, Katheryn Winnick in a form-fitting white pencil dress, and Jaime King and Jenna Dewan Tatum, both in gorgeous gold gowns. Gabrielle Union wore a daring bright printed skirt with a cut-away top, while Xosha Roquemore made a more classic choice in a full white midi skirt and fitted black crop top.

Australian singer Sia was one of the most flamboyantly dressed guests, in an oversized bright orange blazer, and with her trademark long blonde bangs. She is pictured with Alison Sudol, who chose a much more conservative simple black dress. Actress Jenna Elfman wore an ethereal pale blue gown with a shirt collar and lace detailing, while Constance Zimmer also chose a shirt dress, but kept the length shorter and stuck to a palette of black and white.

There were plenty of other famous guests in attendance as well, including Bella Thorne, Brooklyn Decker, Maria Menounos, Cat Deeley, Juliette Lewis, Dascha Polanco, Kat Graham, Brittany Snow, Shonda Rhimes and Catriona Balfe.
