Star of the upcoming ABC series Charlie’s Angels actress Annie Ilonzeh poses on the red carpet with her co-stars Rachael Taylor and Minka Kelly. The threesome were there to present with fellow Charlie’s Angels actress Drew Barrymore. Don’t you like how each lady wore a different color dress?

Former Old Spice guy Isaiah Mutasfa will join the cast of Charlie’s Angels as the love interest for Annie’s character, Detective Angel Kate Prince, reports The Hollywood Reporter. Eye candy AND a rising Nigerian-American on primetime TV makes for must-see TV on my end. While we wait for ABC to debut Charlie’s Angels on September 23rd, check out Annie’s brief appearance on Entourage.

The one shoulder ruffle dress look as seen on Kimora Lee Simmons and Annie Ilonzeh marks Cultural Toast’s first This or That Edition.

This irresistable look was first worn by Kimora Lee Simmons who opted for the classy black look at the 39th Annual AFI Life Achievement Awards.

In late July Annie Ilonzeh of the upcoming Charlie’s Angels TV series was seen in a tangerine orange look with a gold waist-cinch belt at the 2011 Comic-Con event for a panel discussion with co-stars Rachael Taylor and Minka Kelly. Gotta love Annie’s Yves Saint Laurent Tribute sandals.
