Katie Lowes In Halston Heritage - NAACP Image Awards 2014Katie Lowes attended the NAACP Image Awards 2014, presented by TV One, on Saturday (February 22) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The ‘Scandal’ actress took the LBD into little-black-ballgown territory with this Halston Heritage jacquard number featuring a plunge neckline and exaggerated tulip skirt.

The subtle yet impactful texture of the dress is really what kept the look from one-note status—that and the bright sparkle of an embellished Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch.

The glitzy handbag was seemingly pulling double duty as her jewelry, too, as she skipped any major rocks for an effortlessly simple approach.

A perfect matte-red lip was the cherry on top.

I immediately thought of Julie Bowen’s recent similar LBD moment when I saw this look.
