Celeb Cam: Candid Shots from ESSENCE's 2013 Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon

We had a blast at the sixth annual Black Women in Hollywood luncheon in Los Angeles. And it looks like our favorite celebrities had an equally good time reuniting with their friends and colleagues. Luckily, celebs like Holly Robinson-Peete and Jurnee Smollett-Bell were happy to give us a peek inside the annual pre-Oscars bash.
