The 41st NAACP Image Awards descended on Los Angeles on Friday night, bringing a parade of this awards season’s biggest names along with a plethora of photo-ready celebrities.
By the afternoon, the red carpet outside of the Shrine Auditorium was filled with A-listers from music, television, and film.
Lenny Kravitz, who showed some acting chops as a male nurse in Precious, was his usual dashing self in a black, form-fitting suit. Topping off his rock star looks? Sunglasses, of course. Fellow crooner John Legend made quite the splash in a bold, velvet ensemble.
Teen queen Selena Gomez was shimmering perfection in a strapless, white floor-length gown. In fact, many ladies seemed to favor a lighter hue. Gabrielle Union glitzed-up her white frock with sparkles, as did Tatyana Ali who opted for a glittering and long body-hugging dress.
However, there were some bold swaths of color. The View co-host Sherri Shepherd and Garcelle Beauvais both went for outfits in the same bright blue! Talk about a red carpet showdown!
The show is broadcast live on Fox at 8pm/7pmCST.
