Sheryl Lee Ralph attended the 2023 NAACP Image Awards on Saturday in Pasadena, California, taking a colorful approach to red carpet dressing.
The actress wore a custom-made dress in bright orange with ruffle sleeve and stripe details, a bead-encrusted bodice and an ikat-print skirt from Pistis Ghana. She accessorized with gold statement earrings from Misho and a ring from Nikos Koulis.
To create her look for the evening, Ralph worked with her daughter and go-to stylist Ivy Maurice, who was the force behind her mother’s recent Super Bowl performance look. Ralph wore a custom red jumpsuit with a strapless silhouette, black bralette cups, voluminous balloon sleeves and a statement train by Harbison Studio.
For makeup, Ralph went for a classic look with a matte lip, blush, eyeliner, mascara and smoky eyeshadow. For hair, she opted for a middle part and had the back pulled into a ponytail.
Ralph was nominated at this year’s NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in ABC’s hit sitcom “Abbott Elementary.”
The award was announced ahead of the ceremony and went to Ralph’s “Abbott Elementary” co-star Janelle James. Ralph’s other “Abbott Elementary” co-stars, Quinta Brunson and Tyler James Williams, won in their respective categories, with Brunson taking home the award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series and Williams taking home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
