Gayle King recycled the striped Christopher John Rogers dress that she had previously worn at the Celebration of Independence at the 65th Grammy Awards in February 2023. Her dress was from Rogers’ resort 2023 collection and features the label’s signature vivid colorways on its sleeves.
Janelle Monáe wore a futuristic minidress by Tony Ward Couture. Her ensemble featured a spiral of intricate beads and sequins. She completed the look with peep-toe pumps.
Issa Rae donned a colorful gradient suit that featured black details on the shoulders. She embraced the metallic trend with her platforms and added an extra pop of color with yellow nail polish.
Packing a punch, Justin Hartley wore a purple three-piece suit with brown leather dress shoes. The actor was groomed by makeup artist Nicole Wittman, who used Dior Beauty products.
Flavor Flav brought his flamboyant style to the event, wearing a crystal-embellished black denim jacket with matching black pants, a Prince “Purple Rain” T-shirt and a pair of Air Jordan sneakers. For accessories, he wore crystal-covered sunglasses and his signature clock necklaces.
The NFL Honors celebrate the best football players and performances of the year. The ceremony is held ahead of the Super Bowl, and takes place in the game’s host city.
