Teyonah Parris In Amato by Furne One – 2015 NAACP Image Awards

46th NAACP Image Awards Presented By TV One - Arrivals
Teyonah Parris swept onto the scene at the 2015 NAACP Image Awards on Friday (February 6), hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress literally owned the red carpet, shutting it down in her glorious Amato by Furne One blush-nude gown.

This confection was a work of art with its shimmering embellished plunge neckline, hourglass silhouette, and stunning sheer overlay.

I love Teyonah’s interpretation of the design, as she twirled the tulle and worked the dress to its full advantage without a hint of try-hard. Her signature, bold updo also added a beautifully unexpected edge.

This look can be summed up in one word: Breathtaking.

Angela Bassett In Xcite Xtreme - 2015 NAACP Image Awards
Angela Bassett returned to the red carpet in top form at the 2015 NAACP Image Awards presented by TV One on Friday (February 6) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

Turning heads with every step, the ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ star and Outstanding Actress nominee smoldered in an Xcite Xtreme metallic gold and black, body-con gown.

Sultry-glam was the name of this ageless beauty’s game, what with the dress’s plunge neckline and figure-enhancing, art-deco-patterned embellishment.

Bold accessories including Karine Sultan cuff bracelets, a Suzanne Kalan ring, and Amrapali earrings fit right in to this power look, which was finished with a sleekly straight, vampy bob.

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.
