Girls Just Wanna Have Fun at Elle's Women in Television Soiree

It was all about celebrating today's strong, complex female television characters at Elle magazine's annual Women in Television event in LA on Tuesday night. Small-screen stars like Lena Dunham, Nina Dobrev, Gabrielle Union, Jaime King, and Tracee Ellis Ross all gathered at Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood for dinner, drinks, and inspiring speeches. Director-producer Shonda Rhimes had the company of her show's stars, including former Grey's Anatomy actress Kate Walsh and current Scandal star Katie Lowes; also on hand for the event — and sweetly sticking close together — were Modern Family's Sarah Hyland and her onscreen mom Julie Bowen. Jenna Dewan followed up her fun night at the Golden Globes at the party and was decked out in a low-cut gold dress.
