China Anne McClain Wins NAACP Image Award


And the Image Award goes to… We reported last month that China had been nominated for an NAACP Image Award. The 15 yr old singer/actress was smiling from ear to ear, as she posed with her most recent award. It looks like China is going to have to make room on the shelf, after winning the award for Outstanding Performance in a Youth/ Children (Series or Special) in Disney’s ANT FARM. She beat out the likes of Zendaya, Eric I. Keyes III, Fatina Ptacek, and Karen Brar for that award.

Congratulations CHINA! And you looked great!


McClain Rocks Beautiful Yellow & Black Gowns At The 2014 NAACP Image Awards!


The sisters of McClain – China, Sierra and Lauryn – attended the 2014 NAACP Image Awards which took place last night at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California. China Anne already heard the news of her awesome win for the Outstanding Performance in a Youth/Children’s Program in Disney Channel’s ANT FARM the day before the event. However, that didn’t stop the sisters from still going to the event and having a good time.

China, Sierra and Lauryn looked absolutely stunning in their red carpet looks in their yellow and black color coordination. China rocked a yellow gown, Lauryn rocked a beautiful black dress and Sierra combined her sisters’ dress colors  by wearing a cute white dress with some black and yellow.

McClain shared the photo on their Instagram and wrote:

On the RED carpet @NAACP . Gowns by @daliamacphee”

Check out the photo above and let us know what you think of the sisters’ styles by commenting!
