BET Awards Fashion Recap
Last Sunday, Regina Hall star of Girls Trip and Little, hosted the 2019 BET Awards. The award show is a celebration of black entertainers in music, television, movies, sports, and more.
Upon accepting the BET Lifetime Achievement award dedicated by Rihanna, Mary J. Blige performed a mini-concert featuring her hit songs “My Life,” “You Remind Me” and “I’m Going Down.” The late Nipsey Hussle was remembered with the Humanitarian Award, and Cardi B led this year’s award nominations with a total of 7.
While the award show is a celebration of black entertainers, fashion is one of the most exciting aspects of the event. Let’s take a look at which celebrities were reported wearing the best and worst looks this year.
Doja Cat wore a bright pink dress made entirely of yarn balls, paired with a large gaudy choker and eye jewelry. The verdict on this look is that is was distracting, and fairly confusing.
Lil Kim wore a corset mini-dress by Affair, paired with suede black booties, Chanel biker gloves and an actual silver-chained Chanel basketball as a bag.
Winner of the best new international act, Sho Majozi, graced the carpet in a patchwork outfit incorporating the bright colors of her signature style. She completed the look with pink braids and colorful strappy heels.
Lizzo appeared at the event wearing a tan mini-dress with puffy sleeves and with a large circular hat, which definitely made heads turn.
Celebrity hairstylist and star of BET’s “Wig Out” Clif Vmir caught people’s attention in a neon green pantsuit with matching gloves and a pink and green fringe hat.
Ciara who was nominated for a BET award for her song “Level Up” wore a salmon-colored Jean Paul Gaultier dress with pointed shoulders, draped fabric at one hip and an extended piece down the side.
Mary J Blige stepped out on the blue carpet in a floor-length silver-sequined dress coupled with a combination of gold and silver jewelry from chain-linked earrings, cocktail rings and dainty bracelets.
14-year-old Marsai Martin accepted the YoungStars honor last night. Her reaction led to the creation of a popular new meme. She wore a dress from the Romona Keveža Fall 2017 collection, an antique gold brocade strapless dress with sweetheart neckline.
Karrueche Tran was seeing in a bright yellow pantsuit cinched with a matching belt with shoulder pads, and exaggerated sleeves. She was accompanied by boyfriend and former professional football player Victor Cruz, who wore a matching baby blue suit.
Rihanna wore a black leather jacket and matching black pants, sporting her new red hair in a high half ponytail, along with a bold make-up look.
