Now don’t think I was going to go too long without clocking the BET Awards Red Carpet fashion. I have sat and debated and I have finally brewed a top 5 list for the best and worst fashion statements for this past weekend. they’re in order from worst to best.
5. Brandy Norwood
This entire outfit confuses me. I don’t know if it’s the colors, I don’t know if it’s the shape, or maybe it’s the fact that you don’t wear big hair with a dress that flares out like your hair. Typically Brandy does well with fashion but this one wasn’t hitting it for me at all.
4. LaLa Anthony
I’m so disappointed in LaLa because she’s one of my favorite personalities and an inspiration to me, but either she needs to hire a new stylist or stop picking her own dresses because these patterns aren’t cohesive at all. I know everyone wants to do the bright summer colors…but we have to pick one girl.
Now Zendaya is one of my girl crushes but even though she looks queen in everything she wears, I have to be honest; this dress was a no. It looks like she took a button up from her ex boyfriend and spray painted it with glitter paint from Home Depot. The shoes and hair are beast and if she would have done another design of glitter dress and I could have appreciated the look. Still love you Z!
2. Lil’ Mama
Lil’ Mama could have truly pulled this look off had she left out this mirror sequin you-tried-it in the front. She should have tried a simpler accessory to this suit. Maybe next time Lil’ Mama. I have to say this is better than usual though.
1. Debra Lee
Debra Lee always looks a mess to me. I don’t think I’ve ever actually liked an outfit she’s worn. This is perhaps my favorite. She’s notorious for being boring and badly dressed and she didn’t let us down this year. It looks like an extra long man’s t-shirt. Debra, you’ve got to do better at some point.
Dishonorable mentions to Karrueche for whatever she had on and Natalie LeRose’s performance outfit.
5. Naturi Naughton
“Power”‘s Naturi was so bold in her orange and the young lady who broke the internet designed it. It compliments her body and it’s gorgeous. I love everything about it.
Now there’s been some controversy over this dress but I have to say I like it. Ciara has the perfect physique to pull this look off and she looked beautiful. Thanks again for that Janet tribute. Go Ciara!
3. Janelle Monae
Even though everyone said she stole Lupita’s look, she definitely pulled it off. Janelle Monae looked ABOSLUTELY gorgeous! The hair, the dress, the shoes, the face…everything…gorgeous!
2. Janet Jackson
Janet FREAKING Jackson; we haven’t seen her in so long we forgot how much she slays. Her body was snatched, she looked like an angel, and whoever did her make up deserves an A plus. She strutted on that stage like an angel and she was outstandingly beautiful.
It’s about time we start recognizing men in fashion, especially our black men. I love everything about Jidenna’s fashion. He sings about being a “Classic Man” and he definitely looked like one. Thank you Jidenna! Show these black men how to dress!
Honorable mentions to Tracee Ellis Ross, Yazz, and Diggy for looking snazzy too!
Who else had the outfits of fleek at the BET Awards?
