Hannah Simone In Lorena Sarbu – 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Hannah Simone In Lorena Sarbu - 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Hannah Simone was a presenter at the 2015 NAACP Image Awards on Friday (February 6), held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The ‘New Girl’ star wore a striking red Lorena Sarbu one-shoulder, mermaid gown that was elevated with the flourish of a ruffle and an embossed trellis-and-floral-inspired pattern.

The rich hue and flirty yet feminine silhouette took centre stage, as she opted for a minimal approach to her styling with the ever-so-slight sparkle of Eva Fehren earrings serving as her main accessory.

She finished the look with a wispy fringe ponytail and radiantly natural makeup, refreshingly avoiding the ubiquitous trend of matching lip to gown.

Laverne Cox In Gustavo Cadile – 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Laverne Cox In Gustavo Cadile - 2015 NAACP Image Awards
Laverne Cox attended the 2015 NAACP Image Awards presented by TV One on Friday (February 6), which were hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The ‘Orange is the New Black’ actress and nominee was elegant in jewel tones, opting for a Gustavo Cadile royal-purple ball gown.

The embellished, sheer plunge neckline and side panels gave the regal look a teasing hint of sultry appeal.

Working in subtle plum shades, she kept her makeup complementary to the dress while also debuting a wavy, tucked-under bob, which was a beautifully contemporary counterpoint to the more classic silhouette of the gown.

NAACP Image Awards 2014 Menswear Roundup

NAACP Awards MenNot to be left out, a group of handsome guys also took to the red carpet at the NAACP Image Awards 2014, held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Saturday (February 22).

Michael B. Jordan: Consistently a style stud, the ‘Fruitvale Station’ actor and nominee kept up his winning fashion streak in an all-black look, donning a Dior Homme single-button, peak-lapel tuxedo with a cotton, button-down shirt and silk bow tie. He finished the look with his go-to Piaget timepiece and Christian Louboutin ‘New Platers’ flats. Even though there’s just one shade at play here, this sleek entrance is far from dull.

Tony Goldwyn: The ‘Scandal’ actor, who presented co-star Kerry Washington with her Outstanding Actress award, stayed in traditional sartorial territory with his slightly shiny black suit, white button-down and black tie.

Idris Elba: Looking as sharp as ever, the ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ actor and nominee paired his well-fitted black tux and bow tie with Christian Louboutin ‘Dada’ flats and a great pair of glasses.

Bellamy Young In David Meister – NAACP Image Awards 2014

Bellamy Young In David Meister - NAACP Image Awards 2014

The First Lady of ‘Scandal’, Bellamy Young, attended the NAACP Image Awards 2014, held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Saturday (February 22).

She looked beautiful wearing a David Meister red matte jersey strapless gown from the Spring 2014 collection styled with diamond encrusted ruby jewels.

I would’ve perhaps stuck with just the earrings and left the necklace at home on this occasion, but she looks stunning nonetheless.

What do you think? Was the necklace too much?

Archie Panjabi In Ports 1961 - NAACP Image Awards 2014Archie Panjabi brought a breath of fresh, sea-blue air to the red carpet at the NAACP Image Awards 2014, held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Saturday (February 22).

Nominated for her role in ‘The Good Wife,’ the actress wore a Ports 1961 gown. Beautifully hued, the light turquoise shade of this one-shoulder, draped silhouette is really what elevated the design.

She completed the look with Jimmy Choo heels and a Rafe clutch, along with Martin Katz gemstone earrings, which were a near-perfect match to the colour of the dress.
