Earlier this week, Alfre Woodard and Rémy Martin held a dinner party honoring Academy Award nominee Lupita Nyong’o, Oprah Winfrey, Yolanda Ross and Naomie Harris for their achievements and contribution to film this year.
Guests including Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, Angela Bassett, Aisha Tyler, Gabourey Sidibe, Rosario Dawson, Mo’Nique, Regina King, Adepero Oduye, Chandra Wilson and more came together for this annual event to celebrate one another and toast the evening’s honorees.
Held at a private residence in Beverly Hills, the ladies sipped specialty Rémy Martin cocktails before sitting down to enjoy an intimate three-course dinner prepared by Chef de Cuisine, Hope Bailey. One of the hit cocktails of the night was the O’de Vie, named in honor of guest Oprah Winfrey, which featured Rémy Martin VSOP, peach purée, lemon juice, simple syrup and club soda, served in a wineglass.
