Gabrielle Union In Gauri & Nainika – 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Gabrielle Union In Gauri & Nainika - 2015 NAACP Image Awards
Gabrielle Union stunned at the 2015 NAACP Image Awards, hosted on Friday (February 6) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress and nominee blew me away in a beautiful ballet-pink gown by Gauri & Nainika.

The immaculate lines created by the criss-cross neckline and sweeping full skirt were alluring, all the more so with the peek-a-boo side cutouts and open back detail.

She likewise styled the look flawlessly with a sleek high ponytail, smoldering smoky eye and mauve-toned lip.

Pastel pink never looked so powerful.

Tika Sumpter In Roland Mouret – 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Tika Sumpter In Roland Mouret - 2015 NAACP Image Awards
Tika Sumpter made a bright appearance on the red carpet of the 2015 NAACP Image Awards, hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Friday (February 6).

The Roland Mouret cold-shoulder gown was a statement piece simply by virtue of its sublime teal colour that was especially gorgeous on Tika. The dress featured the designer’s signature folded detail at the asymmetrical neckline for added visual interest.

Truly allowing the striking, structured gown to stand on its own, the actress only carried a small Halston clutch, skipping the jewels and slicking her hair into a tight bun.

Kerry Washington In Zuhair Murad – 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Kerry Washington In Zuhair Murad - 2015 NAACP Image Awards
Kerry Washington attended the 2015 NAACP Image Awards, hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Friday (February 6).

The ‘Scandal’ star and nominee was also among the ravishing ladies-in-red at the event. Her Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 gown had me at hello, not just for the allure of its colour but also for the sultry-sweet silhouette.

The relaxed shaping of the dress in combination with its lacy, semi-sheer broderie anglaise had something of a boho-style beauty, heightened by Kerry’s loose waves and baby-pink lip.

Complementing the look were Cathy Waterman jewels, red python Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps, and the flash of a silver Salvatore Ferragamo clutch.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Burberry – 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Gugu Mbatha-Raw In Burberry - 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Gugu Mbatha-Raw was also among the guest list at the 2015 NAACP Image Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Friday (February 6).

The ‘Belle’ star and Outstanding Actress nominee shone brightly in a Burberry strapless gown in a luscious yellow hue.

The floral-shaped, embossed embroidery is really what took this look to the next level, with a thin black studded belt adding an ever-so-slight edge to prevent the pastel dress from venturing too precious.

Taking the belt into account, she carried a black Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch and kept the rest of her styling to a minimum with small, arrow earrings and an effortless updo.

At first I was wishing for a bold lip, but upon second glance her nude gloss was in exact keeping with the graceful, unforced nature of the look.
