Best Dressed at the BET Awards

Sunday night was the BET Awards in Los Angeles, and our favourite celebrities just wowed us again with their stunning sense of style and fashion. Gabrielle Union wore a sparkly black Halston Heritage gown that showed off her slender figure. She brought together a whole glamorous gothic look with her black hair parted down the middle in a slick straight style, and wore a dark lip for a truly vampy look. Gabrielle accessorised the look with multiple silver rings and thick silver bracelets to accentuate the sparkle in the gown, and looked effortlessly stunning while doing it.

Also rocking the black dresses was Justine Skye, who wore a short fit and flare shiny black dress with a halter neckline. Her main accessory was a massive statement gold necklace piece, which she matched with gold cuffs on her wrists. Finishing off the look were her pair of black gladiator style heels - and she looked fantastic!

Singer Zendaya wore an amazing super short shirt dress covered entirely in crystals, and adorable peep-toe silver heels to really help show off her slender legs. She also wore a pixie-cut style wig - which not everyone approved of! The young starlet laughed off the attention she got for her wig, by sending out a mass tweet... Doesn't matter too much, though - she looked stunning at the event!


Actress Laverne Cox continues to wow us with her outfits, and always dresses to the nines, and the BET Award was no exception! She wore a plunging tuxedo-style jumpsuit by Dmitri Sholokhov from Project Runway fame, with a thin belt around the middle to show off her curves. The navy playsuit was teamed with studded black heels and a custom-made body chain by Laural DeWitt - just because the deep plunging neckline wasn't enough of a statement!

While Tracee Ellis Ross was under the pressure of hosting the BET Awards this year, she still managed to look spectacular on the red carpet going in. She wore a long white midi dress that hugged her figure perfectly, with a dipped neckline and bright white heels. The outfit was pulled together with plenty of gold bangles, rings, and massive hoop earrings, proving that you don't need to go way over the top to look incredible

Perhaps one of the most talked about outfits of the night, however, was worn by actress Naturi Naughton, who wore a dress that was made especially for her by Kyemah McEntyre, the girl who designed her own prom dress last year. Kyemah McEntyre 

After it went viral online that the high-school graduate designed and made her own prom dress, Naturi Naughton contacted McEntyre to design a dress that connected back to her African roots - which she then wore to the BET Awards! Not bad for an 18-year old who had only designed her own prom dress before!
