Sports and fashion have been found a common ground in recent times. The red carpet at the  2018 NBA Awards on Monday night was proof of this.

Basketball stars, supporters, as well as guests in the entertainment industry, graced the Barker Hangar event centre in different head-turning ensembles.

From Yvonne Orji‘s statement-making green dress to Victor Oladipo‘s dapper suit, see what all our favourite African stars wore to the event.

Victor Oladipo

Victor who won the Most Improved Player Award was a sight for sore eyes in a well-tailored floral print suit. He completed the look with a bow tie and necklace along with suave Louboutin loafers.

Yvonne Orji

The actress looked stunning in a pretty green Leanne Marshall dress which she rocked with minimal Messika Jewelry and simple shoes from Nicholas Kirkwood.

Bozoma Saint John

Badass Boz looked pretty in a white sleeveless dress which hugged her curves. She paired the look with stilettos from Giuseppe Zanotti.

The actor was dapper on the red carpet as he turned heads in a sharp tux. He joined Hall-of-Famer Dikembe Mutombo who was also crisp in a pinstripe suit for a quick photo.
