Raven-Symone showed off her "thick and fabulous" body in a dazzling floor-length gown at the 17th Annual Trumpet Awards on Sunday night in Atlanta.
Symone, 23, who has faced criticism because of her weight, has said the "haters" don't bother her – too much.
"People come up to me and have certain words for me, but you know what I do? I say, 'I'm healthy, I exercise, I believe in myself, and I think I’m beautiful,'" she told PEOPLE.
Symone was honored at the black-tie gala for her achievements in entertainment. Other honorees included actor Chris Tucker and NBA legend Magic Johnson.
