It’ll also be a night of beauty, with so many sisters stepping out in style to stroll the red carpet! And on that note, Dark and Lovely, the brand that is proudly dedicated to the legacy of serving haircare and styling needs of African-American women, will be the exclusive beauty product sponsor of the “Black Girls Rock! 2016 Star Power Award” and the “Black Girls Rock! 2016 Pre-Reception.” The “Star Power Award” is given to an outstanding woman dominating her field. The Walking Dead actress and Eclipsed playwright Danai Gurira is the 2016 celebrant and will be added to a list of strong Black women including past recipients, Jada Pinkett Smith and Kerry Washington.

“The Dark and Lovely family is honored to commemorate Danai Gurira at Black Girls Rock! 2015, as well as a host of other extraordinary women who are making a difference and inspiring young women within the African-American community,” said Sivonne Davis, Assistant Vice President, Marketing, L’Oreal USA Multi-Cultural Beauty Division. “Our brand prides itself on helping African-American women celebrate their unique and highly individual styles, through innovative products, that have been specially designed for their needs This platform, as well as the inspiring honorees, bring our vision to life—together we are dark and lovely women of who rock!”
