Jessica Simpson  flashed her big smile on the red carpet at last night's Gracie Award Gala in LA, where she was named the recipient of the Dove Real Beauty Award. The winners are chosen by the Alliance of Women in Media and handed out for excellence in all sorts of media made by, about, and for women. Amy Poehler  was recognized for her work as a producer of The Mighty B!, though her friend Tina Fey  wasn't present to accept 30 Rock 's outstanding comedy honors. Gossip Girl  was given a statue for drama series and Penn Badgley  came out to represent the cast. Rarely a day goes by without a red carpet for AnnaLynne McCord , who joined in the fun wearing a long white Alice + Olivia gown. Check out the complete list of winners here !
Jessica brought her mom, Tina, as her date for the night and took the stage once inside to speak about her journey over the past year making The Price of Beauty . After spending Monday out with another group of famous women , Jessica looked happy to celebrate females in media. Jess also had another triumph in the category this week when she successfully banned an exercise video she starred in  from being marketed.
