The 45th Annual NAACP Image Awards went down at the Pasadena Civic Center Saturday night.  And everybody who's anybody in television and movies in Black Hollywood showed up.

From baby bumps to bright colors, Saturday night's NAACP Image Awards had an amazing turnout that probably even surprised Chairman Roslyn Brock.

Kerry Washington made a stunning appearance in a not-so-stunning custom Thakoon dress.  Her burgeoning baby bump didn't stop her from running in her Louboutins to the stage to accept her award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series for slaying in "Scandal".

She topped off her look with a Prada clutch she brought up on stage with her and a Suzanne Kalan champagne diamond vitrine starburst ring.  And she even took a moment to thank God for her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha.  Snaps.

Loving this hair and fishtail braid!

Tatyana Ali wore this floral and fringe Lorena Sarbu dress.  Not the best design for her, but it could have been much cuter without the fringe.  And without the 1991 hair and makeup.  Way too pretty for that.
