Naomie Harris In Valentino – NAACP Image Awards 2014

Naomie Harris In Valentino Pre-Fall - NAACP Awards 2014

Naomie Harris was every bit the golden goddess at the NAACP Image Awards 2014 on Saturday (February 22), which was hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ actress and nominee positively dazzled in a lacy sheer-effect Valentino Pre-Fall 2014 gold-leaf gown.

Both delicate and dramatic, the plunge-front dress was positively sublime—especially when combined with Naomie’s gorgeous long waves and softly hued, radiant nude makeup.

Not requiring much to make this metallic confection come alive, she accessorized simply with minimal H. Stern jewels, an octagaonal Rauwolf bag and Jimmy Choo heels.

This look had every bit of the magical Midas touch. Do you agree?

Lupita Nyong’o In Givenchy – NAACP Image Awards 2014

Lupita Nyong'o In Givenchy - NAACP Image Awards 2014Lupita Nyong’o took home the Best Supporting Actress trophy at the NAACP Image Awards 2014, hosted Saturday (February 22) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California.

I always look forward to the ’12 Years a Slave’ star’s red-carpet entrances. Here, she looked to the Givenchy Pre-Fall 2014 collection for inspiration, donning a ruddy, burnt-orange gown with matching Givenchy sandals and a box clutch.

The plunging bodice with harness-like detail was a structured contrast to the multi-pleated, ankle-grazing skirt, which she supplemented with an H. Stern gold cuff and long gold statement earrings.

Working with the rich desert tones, which began with the dress, she completed the effect with metallic bronze eye shadow and a mahogany-red lip—even lacquering her nails in a similar rust shade.

I’m just not sure if I’m yet on board with her new, two-sided ’do, although I appreciate the freshness of the approach.

Kerry Washington In Thakoon – NAACP Image Awards 2014

Kerry Washington in Thakoon - NAACP Image Awards 2014Kerry Washington’s red-carpet maternity style has been hit-or-miss, so I was eagerly anticipating what statement she’d bring to the NAACP Image Awards 2014, presented by TV One, on Saturday (February 22) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The ‘Scandal’ actress wore a custom Thakoon royal-navy and peach, double-faced-silk gown to clothe her burgeoning baby bump.

The strapless, shawl-sleeve silhouette, coupled with the floor-scraping train, give this look its romantic, mod-fairytale appeal.

Not adding much in the way of accessories, she carried a matching blue envelope clutch by Prada and wore simple diamond studs, topping off the look with a Rapunzel-like, fishtail braid and peachy-pink lip.

If you recall, last year Kerry was dressed in a hyper-memorable Oscar de la Renta gown that stole many of our hearts. I’m not sure the same amount of favour will be laden on this high-sheen dress. But there’s no denying she’s positively glowing.

Katie Lowes In Halston Heritage – NAACP Image Awards 2014

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.
