Jada Pinkett Smith makes first public appearance since Will Smith’s Oscars slap

Jada Pinkett Smith flashed a big smile on the red carpet Saturday at her first public appearance since her husband Will Smith’s infamous Oscars slap.

Pinkett Smith appeared alongside legendary “Grey’s Anatomy” creator, head writer and executive producer Shonda Rhimes and five-time Emmy-award winning actress from the same series Debbie Allen for the grand opening of the Rhimes Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Pinkett Smith posed on the red carpet in a flowing, glittering gold dress and matching gold earrings. She was also photographed beside  Samuel L. Jackson and his wife LaTanya Richardson Jackson at the star-studded event.

The new 24,000 square foot venue will host the renowned Debbie Allen Dance Academy and feature several studios including one named for Will Smith and Pinkett Smith, according to Broadway World.

Pinkett Smith, 50, has remained quiet since her husband slapped presenter Chris Rock during the Oscars broadcast on March 27. Rock had made a bald joke about Pinkett Smith, who suffers from alopecia.

Smith has been banned from all Academy events for 10 years as a result of the slap, but he’ll keep the Best Actor Oscar he won for his role in “King Richard” moments after hitting Rock.
