Ready, set, glam!

The biggest and brightest stars showed up and showed out at the 2021 NAACP Image Awards on Saturday, March 27. While the ceremony was mostly a virtual experience due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, that doesn't mean there was a shortage of memorable moments and spectacular fashion.

For the event, host and Black-ish star Anthony Anderson dressed to impress with a dapper black-and-white tailored tuxedo. Michelle Obama also turned heads with her vibrant seashell green power suit that featured black pinstripes.

But eye-catching suits aside, there were plenty of wildly colorful gowns and larger-than-life creations that certainly captured the attention of viewers.

Regina King dropped jaws in an electrifying (and custom!) copper dress by Oscar de la Renta. The over-the-top number featured a commanding floor-length cape, dramatic ruching and an asymmetrical silhouette.

Insecure star Issa Rae also left her fans in awe, as she dazzled in a white Prada design that was adorned with intricate silver beading.
