2012 BET Awards Celebrity Style

As we all know the annual BET Awards were yesterday.  I typically don’t watch the BET Awards simply due to the fact that they are usually poorly run, most of the “A” list celebrities never show up and the red carpet is usually rather boring and ratchet  - however, this year I decided to tune in because I heard Jay-Z and Beyonce were coming! Let’s be honest…if Jay and Bey are coming than there must be something to watch….lol

Anyways, I was pleasantly surprised by the BET Awards this year.  A lot of celebrities showed up, the performances were great and most importantly (to me at least) it seemed like most attendees really stepped up their fashion game.  Of course some people don’t ever seem to get it right in the style category…but we will let that slide….

I was happy to see that the ladies really broke away from the typical black gowns and opted for dresses/looks in more colorful and bright hues.  Bold and bright colors always look amazing on brown skin :).  Yellow seemed to be the color of choice this year and those who wore it, wore it right.

Let’s get into some of the looks from last night…

I couldn’t locate a full picture of Rocsi’s look but I thought she looked really good.  I love the dress, hair and makeup….kudos to her getting it right, we see you Rocsi.

Tatyana Ali looked cute in a yellow peplum skirt.  I could have done without the white pumps but overall I think she looks good and everything fits well.

Wendy Raquel Robinson looked stunning in a cut-out BCBG gown. Loving this look on her.

YES, BRANDY!!!!  I absolutely loved Brandy’s look (she was actually one of my favorites).  I know she didn’t go with the standard gown look, however I think her outfit choice (as well as hair and makeup) is perfect. She looks FLAWLESS.

I was happy to see Beyonce there, however I can’t say the same thing about her outfit choice.  Bey has an amazing figure and I feel like this dress did nothing for her (too much fabric not enough Bey!).  Of course Beyonce always looks gorgeous just not a big fan of the dress.

Elle Varner looked colorful in her long-sleeved sequin gown.  I am torn on the dress - I want to love it but I am not sure how I feel about it - the jury is still out on this one!

 

Faith Evans kept it casual and cute in leopard skinny pants.  I actually like Faith’s look however I do think it’s a tad too casual for an awards show.  Nonetheless, good job.

Flo Rida & Melyssa Ford showed up together lookin’ sharp in white ensembles.

Jay-Z and Kanye.  Not much to see here - I’m glad to see Jay retired the timbs for one night. :)

LaLa looked nice in a glittery jumpsuit paired with a metallic belt and platform sandals.

Selita Ebanks rocked a  dress from the Falguni & Shane Peacock Spring 2012 collection.  Selita was the best dressed to me.  The dress is gorgeous, from the color palette to the detailed bead work and the sheer bottom it breathes elegance and femininity.

Hosea Chanchez arrived in an interesting look.  I love the color of the suit and the leopard shoes ( one of my favorite pattern/color combos is cobalt blue and leopard).

2 Chainz did what he did….don’t have much commentary on this get up. Love his music though! :)

Big Sean….showed a little skin in his all black ensemble. As far as I’m concerned, he can do no wrong….he’s just so adorable and his style works for him.

Busta Rhymes found the timbs Jay-Z decided not to wear.  Nothing much to see here folks.  Typical Busta.

Lauren London

Does Letoya Luckett age?? Seriously???  Letoya looked beautiful in this yellow, tulle gown. Flawless.

Lola Monroe looked like a modern day Greek goddess in her one arm peach gown and gold head chain.  I loved her entire look.

Taraji P. Henson

Trey Songz looked ready for Fall in his purple leather.  I don’t know what LA’s weather is lookin’ like right now, but it is entirely too hot at the moment to wear any type of leather in NYC.

Tamar Braxton love’s her some tulle…no one can argue with that.

Willow Smith.

Swizz Beats looked dope in bright, patterned Givenchy pants paired with white shoes and a white top.  He was actually my best dressed male.  I know the pants are a bit much…but I love them and I loved the way he is styled.

Nicki Minaj toned it down this time around - this is a good look for her.

Monica & Shannon Brown.  I love these 2 together.

Melanie Fiona opted for all black with a body chain.  Nothing extraordinary but she definitely looks good….just a little safe.

Meagan Good arrived looking darling in all white.  I love her outfit and hair choice….very classy yet sexy (in a wholesome way..lol).  She definitely has that “I just got married” glow.  Beautiful.

What did you guys think of the BET Awards, and who was your best and worst dressed???
