Two of movie industry's most formidable femme fatales knocked their fans for six when they turned out for a prizegiving in Los Angeles on Thursday. Kill Bill co-stars Lucy Liu and Vivica A Fox were both showing off their lethal charms as they stole the spotlight from other celebs gathered for this year's Asian Excellence Awards.

The two performers, who played high-kicking assassins in Quentin Tarantino's 2003 blockbuster, were reunited at the annual event which saw their director friend pick up the Building Bridges trophy. The renowned filmmaker wasn't the only one basking in glory, though, as Lucy, who was looking radiant in a white halterneck gown, was named winner of the Visibility Award in recognition of her stellar career.

Vivica, likewise dressed to kill in a shimmering gold creation with plunging neckline, was eager to congratulate her silver screen collaborators on their success. And the two actresses were no doubt glad of the opportunity to show that in real life they're rather more approachable that their onscreen personas.

That's not to say they can't look after themselves when caught in a tight spot, however. Lucy shares a little of her character O-Ren's aptitude for swordplay, as she is a longtime student of Kali Eskrima Silat, the Indonesian art of knife and stick fighting, while Vivica, who trains in kickboxing in order to maintain her enviable physique, likewise knows how to pack a punch.
