From Ciara to Rihanna, the night’s winning looks.
With performances by Lizzo and Cardi B, a surprise cameo from Bad Gal Riri, and hosting duties served by Regina Hall, last night’s BET Awards were a celebration of Black excellence across music, television, and film. And as always, the show’s red carpet brought forth a bout of jaw-dropping looks. From Ciara to Rihanna and beyond, these were the best dressed stars of the night.
The singer went full on ’80s in a red hot Jean Paul Gaultier dress complete with dramatic shoulder pads and a train.
The Grown-ish star mixed sweaters and sequins in this sparkling Prabal Gurung look.
Last night marked the first time Rihanna wore her Fenty collection to an award show, opting for a head-to-toe black leather look.
Victor Cruz and Karrueche
The couple went for a colorful coordinated suit moment, with Cruz opting for pale blue and Karrueche stunning in bright yellow.
Winning for the most naked look of them all, Justine Skye wore a sheer sparkling gown by Amen.
Mary J. Blige
The icon went fully glam in Alberta Ferretti to take home BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
The show’s host made several outfit changes throughout the night, but went for a statement sleeve moment in Cong Tri on the red carpet.
Taraji P. Henson
The actress’ sparkling LBD featured a sexy thigh-high slit.
Lil Nas X
Of course, the night wouldn’t be complete without the Old Town Road rapper having a cowboy moment in Pyer Moss.
