Kerry Washington, Gabrielle Union, Uzo Aduba and other celebrities walked the red carpet in Pasadena, California at the 46th Annual NAACP Image Awards on Friday night.
Scandal actress Washington rocked a hot red spaghetti strapped gown by designer Zuhair Murad accessorising her look with delicate earrings, rings and bracelets by Cathy Waterman, a Salvatore Ferragamo metallic clutch and Christian Louboutin heels.
Gabrielle Union opted for a blush gown with cut out back and sides to bare some flesh in style. Being Mary Jane star made sure her dress did the talking by keeping her accessories to minimum and wearing her long hair slicked back into a ponytail.
Also turning up the heat was actress Tracee Ellis Ross with the plunging neckline of an otherwise demure white gown.
56-year old Angela Bassett proved age is only a number in a sexy black and gold gown with a plunging neckline.
The relative newcomers Laverne Cox and Uzo Aduba of Orange is the New Black also dazzled on the red carpet, Cox opting for a plum-coloured Edition by Georges Chakra dress with a plunging sheer panel neckline and Aduba in a coral mermaid-style frock.
