With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we can't help but be inspired by some of our favorite celebrity couples. Take Chrissy Teigen and John Legend for example. The glamorous duo walked the NAACP Image Awards last night and literally added sizzle to the red carpet.

Teigen may be expecting a baby girl, but the soon-to-be mama was hot, hot, hot in a thigh-baring black gown. Meanwhile, Legend, who received the prestigious President's Award, gave one empowering speech after his performance of "All of Me." He said: "Despite the daunting problems we face, I am hopeful. Some will call you a radical for calling for justice for all. Some will call you 'the real racist' for daring to call out racial inequality. Fighting for justice isn't an act of hate — it's an act of love."

The words underlined the diversity issues that have embattled Hollywood this awards season (and seasons prior) with the Oscars ceremony and the controversial boycott some actors and actresses are standing behind.

If there was one thing for certain though, there was plenty of deserved talent about. The hit show Empire won big (actor and actress Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson both won) as did Michael B. Jordan, who was honored for entertainer of the year and the outstanding actor in a motion picture for his role in the boxing film Creed.
