Kerry Washington, Viola Davis and Laverne Cox all, unsurprisingly, ruled the red carpet at Friday’s NAACP Vision Awards. White gowns, classic embellished black and pops of pastel were the fashion themes of the evening. The good, the bad, and everything else below.

In classic black is Teyonah Parris who looks so happy in all of her red carpet photos, Gabrielle Union is beautiful no matter what she wears, and Gabourey Sidibe who always looks polished.

Also in blues: Shonda Rhimes, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Black-ish’s Yara Shahidi.

Here’s a better look at Jada Pinkett Smith’s gown and jewelry and Will Smith, too.


Jennifer Williams, Tammy Townsend and Amber Riley all rocked reds.


Laverne Cox wears her signature form-fitting and always perfect red carpet look.
