The 45th NAACP Image Awards went down yesterday (Feb. 22) in grandiose fashion as 12 Years a Slave continued its dominant march to the Oscars, raking in four wins including Outstanding Motion Picture.

Newly-minted Hollywood starlet Lupita Nyong’o added a companion to her SAG Award by nabbing the Best Supporting Actress win.

ABC’s jaw-dropping series Scandal also was well-represented by taking home the Outstanding Drama Series and the show’s star, Kerry Washington was awarded Outstanding Actress in a drama series.

Oprah Winfrey was a highlighted speaker as she honored the late freedom fighter Nelson Mandela by sharing personal recollections of her experiences with him right before Stevie Wonder orchestrated a musical tribute that moved the entire audience.

Other stars and presenters included Idris Elba, Nia Long, Tyrese and Arsenio Hall.

Peep the gallery in full to see all the red carpet fashion stunners, which thankfully, kept it cool on the fails.
