BET Awards 2017 Fashion Was On Point Last Night, Here Are TK Best Looks
The BET Awards is the show that takes place annually in June and highlights the entertainment-related and philanthropic accomplishments of African-Americans.
Every year, the "who's who" of black artists show up to perform, give away awards, make political statements, and of course, show off their threads on the red carpet (which was actually grey this year).
In other words, the BET Awards is an annual LITuation. (You know, "lit" and "situation" put together to describe when a situation is very, very lit.)
Check out the coolest looks to hit the carpet.
It seems this year, blonde bobs and red wine hues took center stage at the awards show.
1. Solange Knowles
Solange's usual quirky, cool girl style was in full form at the BET Awards as she accepted the Centric Award for her song, "Cranes In The Sky" in a black ensemble.
2. Karrueche Tran
3. Gucci Mane
Talk about a dapper rapper! Gucci Mane was all smiles in a "robin's egg blue" suit and gorgeous diamond jewelry.
4. Yara Shahidi
5. Eva Marcille
One look at Eva Marcille on this grey carpet and you instantly know why she deserved to win cycle three of America's Next Top Model. The alluring supermodel and actress glowed in goddess-worthy long box braids and white gown that was equal parts hippie and glamorous.
6. Dascha Polanco
The Orange Is The New Black star looked much more angelic than her character, Daya, who is currently in the middle of a prison riot in the series' latest Season 5.
Polanco kept it simple and beautiful in an all-white pants suit that also boasted some seriously glam ruffles on the right shoulder.
7. Amber Rose
Always one to turn up the sexy, Rose wore a green Balmain dress to the awards with her signature sunglasses.
8. Blac Chyna
Chyna stepped onto the red carpet, sans Rob Kardashian and her lovely kiddos. She looked fun and edgy in a semi-sheer black dress and blunt cut blonde bob.
9. French Montana
French Montana, who was there to perform his hit "Unforgettable," looked incredibly cool in his long red and white embroidered jacket.
10. Justine Skye
11. Remy Ma
The rapper showed up to take home her "Best Female Rapper" award in a sophisticated grey and black dress with beaded fringe and a beautifully made up face.
The "Bad & Boujee" rappers always keep it cool and flashy and the BET Awards was no different, as they guys showed up in colorful floral blouses and enough jewelry to pay mine and your tuition.
13. Cardi B
The female rapper arrived to the awards in a fire engine red pants suit as a first-time nominee in the "Best Female Rapper" category.
14. Demetrius Shipp Jr.
Shipp looked great in a wine-colored suit, but, even without the nose ring and the film's costuming, he's Tupac all over again.
I guess now we know what the rapper would look like walking around today: Drop dead gorgeous in a bomb, tailored suit.
15. Big Sean & Jhené Aiko
Rapper Big Sean and his singer-girlfriend, Jhené Aiko, hit the red carpet in complementary red ensembles. Aiko looked summer-appropriate in a red and pink-printed wrap dress, while Sean looked hot (in more ways than one) while wearing his velvet red jacket and pants set.
Sean was also there to perform, but it looks like they both came to slay.
Oh, this is just Diddy being the Diddy-est he can possibly be in a fashionable striped blouse, white slacks, and patent leather ankle boots. Leave it to Diddy to out-Diddy everyone at the show.
And I couldn't live with myself if I didn't point out that he brought forth a whole other kind of "#DiddyCrop" with these pants.
17. Kat Graham
Kat Graham, Shipp's co-star in the All Eyez On Me biopic, wore a beautiful, although rather strange, black-and-white printed dress with circular cutouts in the front and along the sides. Kinda '70s, but still very modern? Super freaking chic.
Clearly she got the blonde bob wig memo along with Blac Chyna, Cardi B., and Karrueche.
18. Leslie Jones
We don't always get to see the comedian in a gown, but when we do, it's glorious. This green hue is everything on Jones' skin complexion.
19. Issa Rae
The Insecure actress, writer, and producer brought all of the sexy in this striped multi-colored dress.
20. LaLa Anthony
LaLa shined brightly in this sheer, sparkly gown.
21. Logan Browning
The Dear White People star was obviously feeling pretty feathery for her first BET Awards appearance.
22. Bruno Mars
Mars, whose performance kicked off the show, was ever so cool in his '90s-inspired windbreaker and sneakers look.
