You’ve seen our Best Dressed from last night’s NAACP Image Awards, now get into the fabness of everyone else’s looks on last night’s red carpet…

Kerry Washington, Yara Shahidi, Issa Rae, June Ambrose, Halle Berry and plenty more made our Best Dressed list (see their looks HERE!), but there was plenty more fabness to go around.

Last night’s 49th annual NAACP Image Awards had a star-overload of a red carpet.  And we’ve got everyone you need to see.  Buckle up, there’s MUCH to discuss.

We love when couples link up to form a black love squad, and that’s exactly what the Browns and the Anthonys did outside the Pasadena Civic Center before showtime.

Host Anthony Anderson and his wife Alvina posed it up with big winner of the night Sterling K. Brown and his “This Is Us” co-star/wife Ryan Michelle Bathe.
