Stuart Weitzman hosted an "Evening Honoring Jennifer Hudson" at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel's Gable/Lombard Penthouse last night:

Stuart Weitzman shoes are a huge Hollywood craze. But I, for one, am not impressed.

YBF chick Anika Rose was there and she'll be getting laced by Stuart himself for her Oscar shoe game tonight.

Sharon Leal and Lorretta Devine were there too. Rumor has it Lorretta may be participating in the Oscars show in some way. Jennifer Holliday too. Interesting...

Lisa Nichols and Jenny

Now where was that other Dreamgirl Beyonce?

She was busy over at the Giorgio Armani Prive in L.A.

Ummm your double sided tape is showing its head boo.

Love the look though.

And y'all know Mama Tina was there too. Don't get mad at me for how this looks with Bey off doing her own thing...I'm just the messenger.

Bey was also spotted rehearsing for tonight:

She'll be performing "Listen" and J-Hud will be performing "I Love You I Do". It's not confirmed if all the Dreamgirls will be performing a song together.

And the 2007 Film Independent's Spirit Awards were last night. Kerry Washington and Loretta were spotted in the Solstice Sunglass Boutique and Safilo USA at On 3 Productions during the day:
