On Saturday, some of the today’s most prolific names in music, film, television, and sport met up in Pasadena, California to celebrate the 54th NAACP Image Awards. And naturally, they didn’t show up in just anything. Dressed by the most sought-after stylists and brands in the business, from Law Roach to Jason Bolden and Prada to Versace, the attendees at the 2023 NAACP Awards knew exactly what they were doing when they stepped onto the event’s golden carpet. That is, embedding their outfits in our minds forever.
Between Zendaya wearing not just vintage Versace from the Italian brand’s spring/summer 2002 couture collection but also a custom-made Prada set that was inspired by one from spring/summer 1993, Tracee Ellis Ross donning a dress snatched right off of Brandon Maxwell’s NYFW runway, and Gabrielle Union showing up in Gianni Versace’s Circus gown from his 1989 couture collection, it’s clear that no fashion stone was left unturned by the end of this particular award show. Below, see the 10 most memorable looks from the star-studded event for yourself.
