If you thought last week’s Oscars was the last of the red carpet magic until the Met Gala in May, the 55th Annual NAACP Image Awards proved otherwise. The March 16th ceremony, which celebrates Black talent in the film, television, and music industries, delivered yet another batch of lust-worthy fashion looks. With esteemed (and impeccably dressed) Hollywood stars like Kerry Washington, Halle Bailey, and Keke Palmer in attendance, it was an evening the fashion world will be talking about all week long.

Green gowns seemed to be the biggest theme of the night, as stars like Washington, Bailey, and Sheryl Lee Ralph all showed up at the annual affair, rocking various shades of the bold color (think olive, chartreuse, and emerald). Then there was Palmer, whose black and white menswear-inspired ensemble stood out in the sea of bright, citrusy numbers. Meanwhile, both Amanda Gorman and Octavia Spencer opted for timeless, elegant head-to-toe black outfits dripping in light-reflecting sequins.

Ahead, take a look at the fashion moments at the 2024 NAACP Image Awards, held at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles. These fabulous outfits are guaranteed to hold you over until the next major Hollywood red carpet.
