The 23rd Annual Trumpet Awards ceremony was held last night at Cobb Energy Center in suburban Atlanta. Popular TV personalities, honorees and celebrities were in full regalia at the highly touted event celebrating achievement. The red carpet looks ranged from lace to leopard. Jovani, the popular prom dress designer, made the biggest splash on the carpet. Many opted for his designs including Dr. Rachel Ross, Egypt Sherrod and red carpet host Rosci Diaz.

The 2015 Trumpet Awards will air on Saturday, February 21 on TV One and feature live performances of some of the most talented entertainers.
