With their new awards show - VH1 Big In 2015 with Entertainment Weekly - the network aimed to 'highlight the trailblazers and epic pop culture moments of the year.'
So it was no surprise then that Taraji P. Henson, 45, was one of the program's honorees for her unforgettable work as Cookie Lyon on Fox's smash hit Empire.
Taraji looked stunning as she arrived at Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, California on Sunday for the celebration, flashing some skin in a fitted black Alexander **** dress.
Taraji wore a sleeveless, black dress for the event that hugged the Fox star's curves while showing off her toned pins.
The flattering number also featured a laced-up, cut-out along the side of the dress that added some edge to the look with a flash of skin.
She coupled the look with a pair of studded, strappy black heels, and donned a pair of dramatic, dangling earrings.
She showed off bold eyeliner for the event, as well as big lashes and a complimentary mauve lipstick.
Taraji's brunette tresses were styled in gorgeous, wild curls, and the actress looked to be in good spirits as she hit the carpet, showing off a big grin and at one point even blowing a kiss.
Amy Schumer was also being honored at the event after her stellar year that included the success of her comedy Trainwreck.
The 34-year-old smoldered in a form-fitting red gown, which she coupled with a pair of coordinating red pumps.
The flattering number featured three-quarter length sleeves and was fitted to show off the comedian's trim figure.
She wore her long, blonde tresses styled straight for the show, and showed off a smoky eye and a dark manicure.
Amy was joined on the carpet by her sister Kimberly Schumer, who wore a sleeveless, bright blue mini dress that showed off her toned pins.
She coupled the playful frock with a pair of strappy, black heels, and wore her long, brunette locks in soft curls.
Amber Rose, 32, put her ample assets on display in a figure-hugging mini dress as she arrived at the Pacific Design Center.
The model wore a long-sleeved black mini dress which featured a plunging front and also highlighted her toned pins.
She coupled the daring number with a pair of strappy, black heels, and hid her eyes behind over-sized, black sunglasses.
Pitch Perfect 2 director and star Elizabeth Banks, 41, wore a textured black dress with a semi-sheer skirt and bow-shaped cut-out along the front.
The eye-catching dress hit at just above the actress's knees, and she coupled the look with strappy, peep-toe black heels.
She accessorized with a coordinating, black clutch, and wore her long, blonde tresses pulled back into a chic updo, with curled, wisps of hair falling around to frame her face.
Queen Latifah, 45, and Katherine Bailess, 35, both opted for stylish, black jumpsuits for the awards show, though the former wore long sleeves while the latter opted for a one-shoulder look.
Katherine finished off her look with a pair of peep toe heels that showed off a dark pedicure, and wore her long, blonde locks in soft waves.
She accessorized with a pair of dangling earrings, and added a pop of color to her look with a bright red lipstick.
Parks And Recreation alum Aubrey Plaza, 31, stunned in a form-fitting, white mini dress that featured metallic embellishments, and she coupled it with chunky, black heels.
Elle King, 26, meanwhile, was a bit more colorful in a pretty floral dress, though she added a bit of edge to her look with a black, leather jacket.
Master of None star Aziz Ansari, 32, looked dapper in a fitted, black suit worn with brown leather oxfords and a bright, pink patterned tie.
