LBS Fashion & Beauty Highlights: NAACP Image Awards

The NAACP Image Awards that aired this past Friday included some notable awards, celebrity appearances and of course fashions. One trend I noticed on a number of our fave diva celebs was the hair switcheroo - new 'dos were spotted on the red carpet for sure. Other than that, the ladies & gents of Hollywood were out in full effect dressed to the tee. Soundoff! Fierce or Foolish:

I had grown so used to "Miss Keri Baby" with her cropped side-swept cut and honey blond streaks. This time around she's giving us dark and lovely from head to toe. What do you think about Keri Hilson's switch? I almost miss the short edgy look...

Gabrielle Union was spotted in her typical layers with a twist. She's opted for some light brown highlights to switch up her look. I love the hair but not a fan of the dress so much...

This was my first time seeing Raven Symone in her new shorter cut. I have to say it's a refreshing change. I think she wears the jet black well. I want to see some color in her outfit though. This nude palette is washing her out a bit.. 

Besides being madly jealous of the couple - what's not to love? Eva and Lance Gross both looked stunning on the red carpet. Although Eva looks grand, Lance might have stolen the spotlight that night. I'm loving his choice of tux. So unexpected in navy blue -yet appreciated...

I thought Tatyana Ali's look was so elegant and chic. I love the deep neckline on this. Sophisticated enough for her to present during the awards, but sultry enough to emphasize her youth and vibrance. And you know I like me some sparkles and sequins!

Pin It!


  1. I am not sure about Gabrielle's highlights or her dress in fact, but I am loving Keri's new look! I also think Raven's hair looks good, and am Mr and Mrs Gross look amazing!

  2. Keri looks good; one can't really comments since I assume the fierceness has been cut from the picture.

    Gabrielle's hair: though cut really well, the color washes her out. The dress is cute (though channeling off the rack French Connection rather than one of a kind chic). I would do better shoes.

    Ok, Raven looks like she is about 43 years old with that hair cut. The dress also looks geriatric from that shot. Terrible pairing. She's too young for that.

    I can't comments on Eva's look since she's pasted her bosom on Mr. Gross; we need to see the dress babes. Lance looks awesome. The guy has style!

    Haven't seen Tati in a while; her look is always "fresh and natural" which is always beautiful. Her hair could be a little more refined. She has her baby hairs flying around.
