This year’s awards show was hosted by actress and Comedian Leslie Jones and featured several noteworthy moments and performances such as Chance the Rapper winning the Humanitarian Award, Remy Ma beating out Nicki Minaj for the Best Female Rapper Award and a performance by New Edition featuring the cast of the New Edition Movie. The BET Awards is a big night within the black community so all the stars in attendance always come ready to kill the game. Here are some of the red carpet looks ocf the night.

Actress and model Eva arrived at the awards looking ethereal. Her knee length box braids and white off the shoulder embroidered dress gave her a bohemian goddess look.

Beyoncé’s prodiges Chloe and Halle slayed the BET awards by staying true to their eclectic style. Beyoncé’s originally set of twins both rocked the same cape dress but one in red and the other in white. The dread headed beauties also wore the same pair of color blocked heels.


One of Hollywood’s best dressed couples, Big Sean and Jhené Aiko, turned heads as usual. Big Sean wore a velvet jacket and matching pants which he paired with a white tee and white Gucci sneakers. Jhené wore a pink patterned dress that showed off her legs with a slit over the left leg. The couple always manages to subtly match each other. Sean is wearing red, and Jhené is wearing the same color in the pattern of her dress.

Jada Pinkett Smith looked absolutely stunning the night of the BET awards.  She wore a shimmery gold floor length dress dress that showed off  her legs. The dress also had a plunging v-neckline and even came with a matching choker.

Singer Justine Sky definitely had one of the most unique dresses of the night. Her dressed consisted of a nude corset with silver fabric draped around her to form an asymmetrical hemline and a train. This dress really complimented her tall slim figure.

Karrueche Tran looked absolutely fabulous at the BET awards. The actress opted for a short one sleeved plum dress with a cape going over the one shoulder. This color really made Karrueche stand out as most people opted for either neutrals or brighter colors. Karrueche really set off this look with her blonde bob.


La La was showing off her post break up glow the night of the awards show. The actress wore a fittednude sheer off the shoulder dress. The dress consisted of silver detailing and La La paired the dress with bronze heels and gold earrings.


Lil Mama looked angelic on the red carpet. The rapper wore a nude gown with that had a slit, a deep neckline, and floral detailing on the right shoulder. She even paired the dress with a matching clutch and metallic platform heels.

Dear White People star Logan Browning looked beautiful in a short pink feathery dress. The actress paired the dress with white pointed shoes which made the look even more summery. The only way this look could have been improved is if she had put her hair up in a high bun. That would have made the look a bit more fitting for her age.





Instead of a dress Cardi B opted for a pantsuit. The rapper went for an all red look pairing a blazer with pants, pointed pumps, and a clutch. Cardi also went for a blonde bob for the night as well.
