Yara Shahidi Sparkles in Adjustable Minidress & Classic Pumps at NAACP Image Awards

At the NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles last night, the red carpet was filled with beautifully dressed stars — but Yara Shahidi still managed to stand out.

The 19-year-old hit the red carpet in a sparkly black Balmain minidress with a giant ruffle down the middle and pointed shoulders. She teamed the bold dress with classic black pumps by Brian Atwood.

While the dress felt very fashion-forward, the “Grown-ish” star removed the ruffle for photos later in the night, leaving behind a simple sequined mini that nonetheless popped.

Never one to play it safe with her style, Tracee Ellis Ross owned the red carpet with a bold silk organza polka-dot dress created by Marc Jacobs. Like Shahidi, Ross kept it simple with her footwear, choosing black stilettos with a pointed toe.
