Jada Pinkett Smith made her first appearance since the infamous Oscars slap over the weekend while attending the grand opening of the Shonda Rhimes Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles.

The 50-year-old actress looked stunning as she glistened and shimmered in a long sparkling strapless gold gown.

The event brought together some of the biggest names in Hollywood, from Samuel L. Jackson to Debbie Allen, who recently announced that the Debbie Allen Dance Academy would be moving to Rhimes' buzzing performing arts center.

Inside the new 24,000-square ft. space is a studio named after the Smiths, according to Broadway World.

In addition to posing with Rhimes and Allen, Pinkett Smith also took photos with Samuel L. Jackson and his wife, LaTanya Richardson Jackson.

While Pinkett Smith appeared to be all smiles during the event, her husband Will Smith, on the other hand, has been under serious scrutiny since slapping Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards show last month.

As previously reported, Will Smith has been banned from attending the awards in person and virtually for the next ten years due to his unexpected outburst. However, Smith resigned from the Academy on April 1, five days after the on-stage altercation.

Smith apologized to the Academy for his actions, which included him yelling, "Keep my wife's name out your f—ing mouth!" from his seat while accepting the best actor award later that night and again after the show.

On Monday, Rock's brother Kenny told the Los Angeles Times that his brother wasn't aware of Pinkett Smith's condition prior to cracking the joke.
