All of black Hollywood (short of Denzel and Halle) stepped in style last night for the 43rd annual NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles.

Color ruled the red carpet as Octavia Spencer wowed in an aqua Tadashi Shoji gown, Sanaa Lathan turned heads in an orange Escada dress, Jennifer Hudson was beautiful in a blue Maria Lucia Hohan number, Keke Palmer electrified in hot pink and Viola Davis was tantalizing in a tangerine Herve LeRoux.

Check out all the evening's vibrant ensembles and talented stars in the slideshow below.
