2010 NAACP Image Awards Red Carpet

All sisters to the red carpet, please!

Kittens, we've got a lot of work to do so let's get to it.

Amber Riley in Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010

Is it us, or is this a totally different color than the runway version? Because we like the color on the runway version better. We weren't sure we liked this on her at first glance, but the more we look at it, the more we like it.

Anika Noni Rose

Gorgeous and classic. She could have gotten away with a more voluminous do with this dress, but that's about the only complaint we have.

Elise Neal

Gorgeous color. The fit and the drape make her upper half look hot as hell and her lower half look a little busy. We finally came around to pockets on dresses, but you're going to have a hard time convincing us that they're a good idea for gowns.

Eva Marcille

Not loving the hair, but the dress is gorgeous and the makeup is to die.

Gabourey Sidibe

She's the girl of the moment and she's clearly enjoying it, which is endearing as hell. We haven't always liked her red carpet choices, but this is a pretty dress that fits her perfectly.

Gabrielle Union in Pamella Roland Spring 2010

We kind of have a crush on her and are ready to declare her our newest fence-jumper. A fence-jumper is a person who is not of the gender you're normally attracted to whom you nonetheless find insanely attractive, i.e., someone you'd jump the fence for. Like Angelina Jolie for straight women.

Anyway, she looks fabulous. Love the hair.

Jenna Ushkowitz

You'd never know she had that body from watching Glee. The dress isn't exactly earth-shattering but if the goal was to show the world she's sexy and beautiful, mission accomplished.

Jill Scott in Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010

Love the hair, love the dress, but it is just too tight on her. Around the hips and stomach it's fine, but her boobs look like they're screaming in protest.

Keshia Knight Pulliam

We hate her because every time we see her we're reminded of how old we're getting. On the other hand, she looks beautiful here - and tasteful, which is not always something she manages to do. Love the ombre effect on the skirt.

Kimberly Elise

It's a beautiful dress in a beautiful color, but that skirt is awfully flimsy. We guess it's okay to pair a grecian hairstyle to a goddess gown, but it seems a little unimaginative to us. Still, she looks gorge.

Miss Black USA Shayna Rudd

We love that print and we love that she was bold enough to wear it on to the carpet, but the top of that dress is just way too much. It's fighting the bottom. And honey, if the dress is so long that you have to unhook it from your heels while you're getting your picture taken? That means the dress is too long.

Mo'nique in Tadashi Shoji

It's a pretty dress and she looks good, but it's the same effect that happened with Kate Winslet last year. She got nominated for an Oscar and sand blasted all her unique quirkiness away to make herself look like an Oscar nominee.


There's something endearingly '70s about this look that we kind of love it. It's simple, in a striking color, and it makes her look good. Can't ask for more than that.

Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen Resort 2009

She's getting better at doing red carpet. She no longer looks like she'd rather be pulling out tree stumps with her 4x4. Love the dress and mostly love it on her, but we really wish she'd stay away from the clodhopper shoes. She's not petite enough to get away with them in pictures.

Sandra Oh

Another '70s retread. It's beautiful and the color is interesting but it could have used a little embellishment. Also, we're not sold on the way the straps are situated. They're a little wide.

Taraji P. Henson in Hervé L. Leroux

We don't love the hair or the makeup or the jewelry but that dress fits her so spectacularly that it doesn't matter. She looks hot as hell.
