• Jada Pinkett Smith has emerged after "the slap"
  • She appeared at a red carpet event this weekend
  • Husband Will Smith was nowhere to be seen

Jada Pinkett Smith is back in action after "the slap." But Will Smith appears to be lying low for now.

Two weeks have passed since the infamous Oscars moment, and a solo Jada Pinkett Smith finally emerged for a new red carpet appearance.

Jada Pinkett Smith is back, Will Smith isn't

Jada Pinkett Smith returned to the spotlight at an event for friend Debbie Allen. Jada, 50, looked elegant in a sparkling gold gown. No Will Smith sighting, however.

Jada Pinkett Smith hit the red carpet this weekend as Shonda Rhimes opened a performing arts center in LA. Grey's Anatomy star Debbie Allen was honoured alongside Rhimes, the show's creator, and the trio were photographed posing at the event.

Jada's new appearance comes just after the Academy handed down Will Smith's punishment. For his confrontation with Chris Rock, Smith is banned from the Oscars for 10 years.

Will Smith accepted the penalty, but he'll get to keep his Oscar win and can still compete for awards during his decade-long ban.
