NAACP Theatre Awards 2012: Selita Ebanks, Vanessa Simmons, Eva Marcille And More (PHOTOS)

With all the excitement surrounding the presidential election it was easy to overlook all the other fabulous events going on. One in particular was the 22nd Annual NAACP Theatre Awards.

The festivities took place on Monday evening with a host of top-notch celebs on hand to fete this year's honorees, which includes Nicole Ari Parker and James Pickens, Jr.

Selita Ebanks stepped out in a beautiful blush mermaid-style dress by Hervé Léger. The model-cum-swimsuit designer got a run for her money from "America's Next Top Model" alum Eva Marcille who donned a near identical silhouette in a dress by EMIL Couture.

The fellas were also out turning heads. Actor Brian White played with prints in a polka dot tie and grey plaid suit. And speaking of grey -- Jesse Williams of "Grey's Anatomy" worked the red carpet in a fitted blue suit and black button-down shirt. Samuel L. Jackson was one of the night's presenters and of course rocked a Kangol hat.

Check out those well-dressed celebs and more at the star-studded 22nd Annual NAACP Theatre Awards in the slideshow below.
