The Latest In Lupita Fashion And The 2014 NAACP Image Award Winners

12 Years a Slave continues to pummel competition as it earned several new statuettes at Saturday night's NAACP Image Awards, which honors talent of color across art forms. While it was certainly an illustrious ceremony to watch (though many of the awards were handed out before the broadcast), we might as well get the most important question out of the way: what new amazing dress did Lupita Nyong'o wear? Look to the left and ogle at its loveliness as I did when I first laid my eyes on it. The ankle-length dress is by Givenchy, and the actress is also wearing gold H. Stern cuff and earrings. Nyong'o also took home the best supporting actress award for her work in 12 Years.

But, of course the night wasn't all about the fashion. People actually won awards too. Many were expected, though I was pleasantly surprised to see David Oyelowo take home an award for his terrific performance in Lee Daniels' The Butler. He's been virtually ignored this season, so i am glad he finally got some love here. We also were reminded that we are living in the era of Forest Whitaker, as the icon accepted both a lifetime achievement award as well as the lead actor award for Butler. And his acceptance speech was beyond perfect.

Over on the television side, my new favorite comedy series, The Real Husbands of Hollywood, took home the best comedy award as Kevin Hart earned both lead actor in a comedy series and entertainer of the year awards (well deserved, especially his hustle is so serious right now). Scandal also had a reason to celebrate as the show won outstanding drama series as Kerry Washington and Joe Morton earned best lead actress and supporting actor in a drama series. Washington, whose fashion game is usually hit or miss with me, donned a pretty royal blue dress with pink trim that flattered her baby bump:
