Zillennial Spotting: NAACP Image Award 2023 Red Carpet

Our faves stepped out over the weekend

We’re back with another Zillenial spotting from the 2023 NAACP Image Awards red carpet. Our favorite Gen-Z’ers and Millennials showed off their best looks from daring Dior to viral Versace. 

Scroll ahead for some of our top picks of the stars that came to slay. 

Marsai Martin

The Black-ish alumna wore custom Christian Siriano for her NAACP Image Award look with an elegant Black and blue color scheme. 

Yara Shahidi

Yara Shahidi popped out in a Giambattista Valli Haute Couture garment showing off her neckline, and paired it with nude pumps to complement her ensemble.

Caleb McLaughlin

Stranger Things star Caleb McLaughlin is rocking an all-Black Dior suit with an Oblique pattern outside his outfit and traditional patent leather shoes. 

Jabari Banks

The modern-day Bel-Air star dressed to impress with a subtle Black suit and turtleneck, and to set off the entire look, he added snakeskin boots for texture. 

Coco Jones

Coco Jones joined the all-Black attire wave with a sexy and sultry gown. She has a classic slit to show off those legs and give us a peek at her stomach that might’ve forced us to work out. 

Marcus Scribner

The Grown-ish star went outside the box for his NAACP Award look by intertwining an old-fashioned nude suit and adding eccentric graphic designs that elevate his clothes.

Dominique Thorne

ESSENCE woman in Hollywood honoree wore a quintessential gold gown by Rami Kadi Maison de Couture that flatters her decollétage


Our favorite It girl shut down the red carpet with her 2002 Versace Black and green gown. The dress hugged her curves effortlessly and jogged our memory of what it felt like to see Zendaya serve on the carpet.
