Issa Rae In Marc Jacobs – 2018 NAACP Image Awards

Issa Rae shone at the 2018 NAACP Image Awards on Monday (January 15) in Pasadena, California, joining Tracee Ellis Ross and Storm Reid.

A dazzling outfit was in order given that she was nominated for three awards for her work on ‘Insecure.’

This Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 gown was made for the red carpet as the elbow-length sleeves and high neck were juxtaposed with an open back and a plain black skirt panel with tie.

It was 360 degrees of glamour.

Mandy Moore In Vika Gazinskaya – 2018 NAACP Image Awards

Mandy Moore looked lovely in powder blue at the 2018 NAACP Image Awards on Monday (January 15) in Pasadena, California, where she joined Storm Reid and Halle Berry.

The ‘This Is Us’ actress can pull off head-to-toe colours terrifically, but it was refreshing to see her take a softer approach with a pastel Vika Gazinskaya Spring 2018 gown.

Her red clutch injected some warmth into the prim style without taking away from the dreamy quality of the stripe fabric with bias-cut skirt.

The fitted waist and gathered shoulders enhanced the sweet charm of the dress without it becoming sickly sweet.

What do you think?

Andra Day In Giorgio Armani – 2018 NAACP Image Awards

Andra Day stepped out at the 2018 NAACP Image Awards on Monday (January 15) in Pasadena, California, where she was nominated for Outstanding Duo or Group and Outstanding Female Artist.

I must confess that my eye went to her bold makeup and embellished waves when I first saw this.

It’s quite a feat given the rich mix of colours and dynamic lines on her Giorgio Armani Fall 2017 gown.

The singer is wholly committed to a retro vibe, but she gives it her own modern edge. And I think this head-turning dress with Christian Louboutin ‘Tres Frais’ satin sandals is in her wheelhouse.

It’s a lot of look, but I’m on board with everything, save for the sheer top.

Sonequa Martin Green In Christian Dior – 2018 NAACP Image Awards

Sonequa Martin Green was in attendance at the 2018 NAACP Image Awards on Monday (January 15) in Pasadena, California, alongside Kerry Washington and Yara Shahidi.

‘The Walking Dead’ actress was clad in a Christian Dior Resort 2018 dress which stood out for its textured, burlap-like fabric and dynamic pattern.

I applaud her for giving the strong western vibe a glamorous spin with her Roger Vivier clutch and statement jewellery.

Unfortunately, I think the look is over-accessorized with the shoes distracting from the painterly horse print.

The footwear feels very out of place.

Tracee Ellis Ross In Narciso Rodriguez – 2018 NAACP Image Awards

Tracee Ellis Ross is someone who surprises on the red carpet. At the 2018 NAACP Image Awards on Monday (January 15) in Pasadena, California, she opted for a minimalist approach.

I will concede that the rose gold shimmering fabric on her Narciso Rodriguez Pre-Fall 2018 dress is not the first thing people think of when they hear minimal, but there is a simplicity to the slip-like style.

Her Tyler Ellis clutch, Christian Louboutin ‘Follies Resille’ mesh pumps, fresh makeup and sleek braid were in keeping with the pared-back look.

I can see some comparing her to Gal Gadot here.

To pose with her Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series award for ‘Black-ish,’ she changed gears, donning a tawny furry jacket which gave the frock a ’70s vibe.

Diane Kruger In Chanel – ‘César – Revelations 2018’ Party

After donning Chanel at The BAFTA Los Angeles Tea Party, the actress stepped out in the designer again at the ‘César – Revelations 2018’ Party on Monday (January 15) in Paris, France, joining Marion Cotillard.

Some had issues with her previous look so hopefully there will be more fans of this one which is also from the Spring 2018 collection.

The actress has had many special moments in Chanel. I don’t think this will be one of her most memorable outfits, but the flirtatious white mini shows off her typical hard-and-soft styling splendidly.

Forgoing the clear PVC boots on the runway, she incorporated sheer fabric with black ankle boots, which enhanced the black bow on the frock while grounding the cloud-like shoulders and hem.

Her tousled waves echoed the voluminous lace details.

Storm Reid In Yanina Couture – 2018 NAACP Image Awards

Storm Reid made a playful statement at the 2018 NAACP Image Awards on Monday (January 15) in Pasadena, California, joining Kerry Washington and Halle Berry.

I’m sure there will be some sighing at another sheer dress, but I love the playful illusion her Yanina Couture Fall 2017 frock presented.

It’s sweet and whimsical but still chic from the mix of fabrics and trim. And it’s a piece that suits someone of her 14 years.

The decision to style the dress with ankle-strap heels as opposed to the over-the-knee boots from the runway enhanced the sophistication and allowed the two hems to be fully appreciated.

She is someone I look forward to seeing more of.
