No one came to play on last night's NAACP Image Awards red carpet.  But we handpicked the few who managed to out-slay the rest.  Get into all the black fabulousness inside...

The 49th Annual NAACP Image Awards were one for the books last night, especially considering the powerful evening went down on Martin Luther King Jr.'s observed birthday, and it all started with an epic red carpet at the Pasadena Civic Center. Black folks always show up and show out, and we're here to discuss it all.

Halle Berrrrrrry.  Halle Berry.

The Kidnapped star slid through to present the Music Makes a Difference Honor to Charlie Wilson. Her revealing - like, don't make one wrong move or all the goodies will be saying Hello revealing - Reem Acra burgundy fabness had folks looking for water, towels and everything else when she hit the stage.

The stunning 51-year-old handled the red carpet like a pro with zero wardrobe malfunctions and all the confidence.  If our skin (and body) looked this flawless, we'd be that confident too.

Chick's thirst trap-on-the-low game is A1, and we bow down.

Kerry Washington was breathtaking in a full skirted black Michael Kors gown with the big hair that we love.  The regal, yet sexy, look was one of our faves for the night.

"Queen Sugar" star Tina Lifford literally took our breath away with her red carpet perfection. She's been slaying consistently lately.

Aunt Vi was playing no games in a multi-toned, ruffled Steph Audino Couture skirt and AnRFashions sheer blouse.  Pink ankle strapped heels to match her multi-pink toned skirt and wiggery that made us say "Yasssss" topped off the look. 

51 and ridiculously fab.

Tina's "Queen Sugar" co-star Bianca Lawson went for a bold red look in a tiered and ruffled crimson ethereal dress that was simple but gorge.  Perfect red lip to top off the look as well.

Our fave Issa Rae took a risk with head to toe sequins Marc Jacobs SS18 look, and it paid off:

The multi-nominee loves a bold look with bold colors, and so do we.

Long and open-back with turtleneck dramatics...we love it.

Speaking of dramatics, June Ambrose ARRIVED.

Just when you thought her sheer sleeves were just sleeves, the stylist guru corrected you right quick with all this Michael Costello chaos, as she called it. Stunning!

"Claws" star and nominee Niecy Nash is all about embracing those killer curves of hers.

The grogeous star was gearing up to head to New Orleans to start filming the new season of her hit show the next morning.  She served up a perfect wavy bob, a little thigh and a snatched waist in a Mac Duggal beaded and sequin dress. We're sure her hubby loved it.

Big winner of the night Tracee Ellis Ross also shined her way onto the carpet.  The Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series Winner (whose show "blackish" also won big) served up body & a more natural glow for days in a Narciso Rodriguez sequin dress.

She finished her look with Louboutin pumps and a gold Tyler Ellis clutch.  This braid was also everything.

Yara Shahidi was also one of our faves for the night:

The braid, the adorable yet polished Vera Wang SS18 gown and that smile worked perfectly for the "grownish" star.  But our fave part was that she made it her own and kept it comfy in combat boots underneath all that dainty-ness.

The fellas didn't disappoint either:

Michael B. Jordan's black-on-black suited up look had us (and everybody else) swooning.

By the way, he brought his mom as his date.

Mack Wilds' tie-less, open shirt look was hella sexy.

And we always love a bold dinner jacket.  So Jay Pharoh, Woody McClain, and mini-cutie Lonnie Chavis caught our eye:
