Amber Riley In Jennifer Salzman – 2011 NAACP Image Awards

Least Flattering Award
It looks like Amber Riley still hasn’t recovered from her Grammy’s disaster, because she continues to make strange choices on the red carpet.

This weekend at the 2011 NAACP Image Awards she wore a Jennifer Salzman strapless bustier gown.

The colour is pretty, but I don’t get the tiered frill around the waist.

I’m guessing the intention was to take focus away from the hips, but I think it actually does the opposite because that is all I can focus on.

I hope Amber regains her mojo, because it’s has be M.I.A. for a while now.

Chopard jewels completed her look.

Sara Ramirez In Tadashi Shoji – 2011 NAACP Image Awards

Best Dressed Award
Sara Ramirez was easily the Best Dressed at the 2011 NAACP Image Awards which was held in LA this weekend.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” actress looked beautiful on the carpet wearing a Tadashi Shoji Spring 2011 dress.

I think this is the best I’ve ever seen her look.

Her asymmetrical feather grey embroidered lace one shoulder gown with ribbon waist was paired with a detailed gold clutch.

Despite not being crazy about her making the clutch such a focal point on her look, everything else is perfection.

Her shorter hairstyle is chic.

Kerry Washington In Zac Posen – 2011 NAACP Image Awards

All White On The Night Award
Kerry Washington would have turned plenty of heads at the 2011 NAACP Image Awards which took place in LA this weekend.

She looked breath-taking wearing a crisp ivory Zac Posen gown.

Her ivory gown with flutter sleeves and a train was paired with Stephen Webster jewels and a white clutch.

Kerry’s gown and jewels are doing all the work here, because I don’t like her make-up.

She may have been going for a natural look, but I would’ve loved to have seen a beautiful lip colour to brighten up this look even more.

Best Use of Embellishments Award
Anika Noni Rose looked stunning on the red carpet of the2011 NAACP Image Awards which took place in LA this weekend.

“The Good Wife” actress wore a stunning Ina Soltani gown.

The gorgeous eggplant paillette cap sleeve open back gown was accessorized with diamond drop earrings from the ‘Open Hearts by Jane Seymour’ collection.

I would’ve loved this look with a chic updo, but she looks beautiful either way.

Runway To 41st NAACP Image Awards – Jill Scott In Tadashi Shoji

The Bold & Beautiful Award
Tadashi Shoji was definitely the go to designer of the 41st NAACP Image Awards on Friday night, as he dressed 4 women including singer Jill Scott.

She didn’t wear a gown, but a very sexy navy sequined Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010 dress.

I love how chic she looks in her ¾ sleeve dress which gives her an amazing silhouette.

Silver accessories perfectly complement her dress.

41st NAACP Image Awards – Keke Palmer In BCBG Max Azria

Best Use Of Colour/Best Dressed Runner Up Award
The more I look at this picture of Keke Palmer at the 41st NAACP Image Awards, the more she makes me think I should’ve given her the Best Dressed Award instead of Mo’Nique.

I think I’m seduced by that stunning canary yellow that just pops on this red carpet.

The young actress really works this asymmetrical BCBG Max Azria gown which is divine against her skin tone.

Her hair, make-up and gold earrings perfect this look.
