The Stellar Gospel Music Awards held its 38th show on July 18 in Las Vegas. Celebrating the diversity and spirit of Gospel music, this year’s awards showcased some of the top Christian talent found worldwide. And the style did not disappoint.

Described as the “Greatest Night in Gospel Music,” the show opened with performances by Kierra Sheard Kelly and Pastor Mike Jr. Jonathan McReynolds and Tasha Cobbs Leonard hosted the show.

The event presented trophies across nine categories to honorees who “exemplify the power of faith, talent, and dedication within the Gospel music community.” Notable winners include Kirk Franklin, CeCe Winans, Bishop T.D. Jakes, and Zacardi Cortez.

Trends to Watch: Saved and Slayed

Stars showed up to the event in some of the season’s hottest trends. Celebrity stylist, designer, and influencer J. Bolin curated the night’s most show-stopping looks.

Hooded dresses were a favorite style worn by attendees. Erica Campbell stunned in an over-the-top black satin hooded gown. And “The Voice” finalist, Koryn Hawthorne, rocked a cream and pearl-adorned sheer version.

Bold, monochromatic looks also dominated the Stellar carpet. Tasha Cobbs Leonard rocked multiple variations during her outfit changes, Cece Winans chose a bright yellow dress for her carpet moment, and DOE stunned in a hot pink pants ensemble.
