NAACP Image Awards 2017: Red carpet arrivals

The 48th Annual NAACP Image Awards took place on Saturday night, and the star-studded ceremony featured a handful of memorable style moments.

Taraji P. Henson looked incredible in a simple black, sleeveless gown that flaunted her sexy curves. It featured a thigh-high slit that the "Empire" star made sure to show off while posing on the red carpet.

"Scandal" star Kerry Washington continued her red carpet dominance in a long-sleeved sheer gown with intricate detailing and pops of color, while Gabourey Sidibe brought even more color in her gorgeous yellow gown covered in a blue peacock feather print.

Also in attendance were Laverne Cox, the cast of "This Is Us," Omarosa, John Legend and more.
