The 51st annual NAACP Image Awards are going down in Pasadena and that means Hollywood’s best and brightest are all in attendance.

Folks like Lena Waithe, Cynthia Erivo, Michael B. Jordan, and more all brought their best style game to the night that celebrates the achievements of people of color in film, TV, music, and literature. The show also acknowledges people and organizations who promote social justice through entertainment.

While some took a more traditional approach to the black-tie affair, others chose more outrageous ensembles.
