Yara Shahidi has had quite the year, but her red carpet guests for the 10th Anniversary of the ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Awards prove she doesn’t do it all alone.

The 17-year-old Black-ish star was on hand last night to accept her Generation Next award with her support system in tow.

Gracing the red carpet alongside the honoree were her parents Keri and Afshin Shahidi, her two brothers and aunts.

The crew fit right in on the red carpet, stunning in all black ensembles. Yara donned a classic Chanel number with a sheer top, gorgeous drop earrings and simple black pumps.

Shahidi was recognized at the event for not only her impressive acting chops but her ability to use her voice for good, push the conversations that need to be had forward and for being a stand-out role model in her generation. Throughout the evening several of her Hollywood peers talked about her grace and intelligence.

Beautiful family! Now we see where she gets all that Black Girl Magic from!
