With the 2016 Academy Awards coming up in just a few days, all of the preliminary soirees, fêtes and luncheons have already kicked off, and Thursday saw one of the biggest events of the week with numerous celebs flocking to Essence magazine's 2016 Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon.

Everyone from Kelly Rowland to Zendaya, Tia Mowry to Keke Palmer attended the honorable afternoon, and of course it wouldn't be complete without some seriously amazing red carpet styles to top it off!

Rowland gave us major color envy with her super chic, high-waisted yellow trousers, while Zendaya opted for a trendy three-piece polka-dot satin ensemble that appeared to be right off the runway.

Meanwhile, stars Mowry, Shonda Rimes and several others showed their excitement for spring in some colorful, patterned looks that we'll definitely try to mimic as the days get a bit warmer.

Check out all the red-carpet arrivals at luncheon below!
