Last night, Women in Film, Los Angeles hosted the 2016 Crystal + Lucy Awards presented by Max Mara and BMW at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and it was a charitable evening of girl power, glitz, and glamour. While inside, guests toasted the year’s honorees, including Taraji P. Henson (Lucy Award for Excellence in Television) and Natalie Dormer (The Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future), it was out on the red (err, navy) carpet that some of the most memorable moments occurred.
