2. Black Coffee and Mbali Mlotshwa were magic. They both rocked jewel tones and took the slayage game to another level. Yeessss!!!

3. Sadly Queen B left us underwhelmed. She usually makes quite a statement on the red carpet but this outfit didn’t do anything for our fashion senses.

Green with envy!! ?❤️? styled by @iamhdiddy #BET #Redcarpet

4. Eva Marcille served legs for days. She was all kinds of body goals in that number!!


5. Fantasia was red carpet ready in a sheer skin tight number. It shaped her figure in all the right places.

So much fun premiering #SleepingWithTheOneILove music video at the #BETAwards! ?? #TheDefinitionOf

6. There’s no in between with Gabrielle Union, she either gets it totally right or horribly wrong and unfortunately this time she got it horribly wrong.


7. Never one to fade into the background Janelle Monae was striking in a black and white two piece.

Slay or Nay??? #janellemonae #janelle #betawards2016 #betawards

8. Karrueche is yet to put a foot wrong in our eyes. She knows what works and how to make a statement without coming off as trying too hard.

9. Meagan Good left us green with envy in a cut-out number.


10. Nandi Mngoma was sheer black girl magic. She was flawless and we loved every part of her look.


11. Tia Mowry’s dress left us confused and overwhelmed. We could see the vision behind it and really wanted to like it but there was just too much going on.


12. Tracee Ellis Ross who was a co-host for the awards ceremony looked fierce and fabulous in snakeskin.

13. Alicia Keys gave off a slightly frumpy vibe in her jumpsuit. She chose to go makeup free and mesmerised us with her natural beauty.

#aliciakeys all natural at the #betawards ❤️
