It was a bold, bright, colorful-as-hell night at the NAACP Image Awards, but we’ve gotta say, after years of covering this thing, that is no surprise at all.
Cynthia Erivo in Mario Dice
We finally figured out her style. She’s Lady Liberace. Looking at it from that perspective, her constant extra-ness is understandable and appropriate. Yes, we kinda like this nutty thing.
Danielle Brooks in Lavie
Gorgeous print. Love the seaming, but the puffy sleeves were not needed with such a big skirt.
Issa Rae in Oscar de la Renta
Well, if it must be a sheer skirt, at least make it an elegant, barely sheer one. She looks gorgeous but we’ve always hated that style of twisty strap.
John Legend in A. Sauvage
LOVE the print but that jacket is clearly too small on him.
Kate Beckinsale in Julien Macdonald
Well. This all appears to be in Beckinsale order.
Kiki Layne in Georges Chakra Couture
The design is fairly basic to the point of musty, but the color is stunning on her, the drape is lovely and you can’t argue with that hair.
Laura Harrier in Pyer Moss
Kind of fabulous but we think we’d have liked a more complete skirt. There’s enough going on up top. Also: does the fabric look stiff or is it us?
Lena Waithe in Greyscale
We can’t get behind the turtleneck, but the jacket is fierce.
Letitia Wright in Georges Chakra Couture
It looks like your party dress is smoldering, dear.
Aw, we’re being bitchy. Yes, it looks like a smokey dress, but we suppose that’s part of the appeal. Can’t say it’s not working.
Miles Brown in Michael Ferrera
Stephan James in Salvatore Ferragamo
Your hair looks amazing and we kind of love the shoes, but those pants are entirely too small, sir.
Sterling K. Brown
No complaints here. The shoes are a fun surprise.
Storm Reid in Georges Chakra Couture
It’s pretty, but perhaps a tiny bit too grownup sophisticated. We always get in trouble when we say that.
Thandie Newton in Valentino
It’s fine, but that’s too much sleeve.
Also no complaints. That dark gray color is subtle but works really well.
Yara Shahidi in Balmain
Sure, maybe it’s a bit much and maybe she looks like a folded napkin in a fancy restaurant, but BEHOLD:
A reveal! Because why limit yourself to one look per dress? She looks great.
