Red Carpet Fashion Awards

One-Of-A-Kind Award
Essence Atkins arrived at the 2011 NAACP Image Awards wearing a one-of-a-kind Jean Fares Couture gown.

The “Are We There Yet?” actress sparkled on the red carpet in a silver sequin one shoulder gown, with hints of bronze sequins on the shoulder and side of the gown.

It’s a nice enough gown, but I’m far from being wowed by this look.

The gown wants to be dramatic, but it’s doesn’t quite get there.

Just For Once Could You Please Put Them Away? Award
At this point in my life, I feel like I’ve seen Halle Berry’s boobs more often than my own.

The actress looked stunning at the 2011 NAACP Image Awards wearing an Emilio Pucci Spring 2010 dress.

Her printed version of the Spring 2010 runway dress was modified to keep the twins under control.

There is no way she could’ve even considered wearing the runway version.

It’s a great dress, she looks amazing, yet I’m still wanting more from Halle.

One day I hope she’ll humour me.

Judith Leiber ‘Biana’ crocodile clutch completed her look.

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.

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.

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.
