The BET Awards went down in LA last night with some major performances by Justin Timberlake, Ciara, Nikki Minaj, 2 Chainz and more. Unfortunately Drake bailed at the last moment and later tweeted that he was finishing up his new album to be dropped September 17 (Wooohooooo!) and spending time with his family. We’ll forgive you this time pookie. Not that they were scheduled to appear, but I missed the shining faces of the Carters (Beyoncé, Shawn and Wayne) and Rih Rih who was actually tied for the most nominations of the evening. While the awards show and performances certainly proved entertaining my attention was riveted to the pre-show red carpet. There were some hits and some misses and a whole lot of in between. But the mediocre don’t often prove news worthy and in display of positivity I’m only going to focus on those at the fabulous end of the spectrum, leaving the worst dressed lists to numerous other bloggers out there. Here we goooo…..!!!!
Pharell looking dapper as ever!
This look is actually subdued for Miss Minaj, minus the major display of boobage. A gorgeous dress and look for the Best Female Rapper award winner.
I do like this Versace dress on Amber Rose, but am mostly including these two because I love them and I love their love! They’re so complimentary to one another. And how interesting that Amber Rose covered up her tats for the occasion! Wiz made up for it with his copious body art.
Nelly looked slick in his casual grey on grey.
Adrienne Bailon wore her uniform to the awards show last night. Bun, goddess dress, a bath of bronzer. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. I do love the way her turquoise ring ties into the stones of her heels and compliments the coral of the dress beautifully.
Bridget Kelly in Maria Lucia Hohan. It’s not easy to pull off Chartreuse but Miss Kelly gets it right. This was one of the more glamorous looks of the evening.
Justin Timberlake lookin’ fresh and clean!!
Jamie Foxx kept it crisp in all white and got political with his Trayvon Martin tee. Respect.
Jay Ellis brought his mom along as his date for the awards show and they were looking white hot! Dying over his fresh summer suit…Crispy!!
Janelle Monae in the color of the night. I’m digging the embellishment at her collar.
Meagan Good…I’m not sure if it’s her dress I’m loving or her body. Probably a little of one and a lot of the other…literally!!
Naya Rivera in my favorite look of the night! Obviously the reason Big Sean is wearing a white tee is because he didn’t want to overpower his girl…right?
Overall, the best dressed dude is Pharrell. It wasn’t even a competition. And for the ladies…Naya Rivera takes the cake! Maybe next time her date will take a cue from Billionaire Boy Pharrell, who is 40 years old, by the way. He doesn’t look a day over 27!
Until next time beauties; peace and power!
