The 2012 BET Awards has come and gone, and while in the midst of all the action within the #FordHotSpot – we finally got a chance to relive all the fabulous fashions & trends seen inside & outside the show. Plenty of bright colors, patterns, summertime whites & blues graced the red carpet (many of these patriotic trend colors are just in time for the 4th of July). Check out a few of our favorite and not so flattering trends seen on the BET Awards red carpet below…
Brights: There were bright & bold colors seen throughout the BET Awards and the red carpet was no exception. BET ‘Best Gospel Album’ Winner Yolanda Adams wore a stunning, floor length gown in red while “Let’s Stay Together’ actress Erica Hubbard wore a short coral number, just right for summertime red carpet fun.
Summer Time Whites: Now that the summer is officially here (no, for real this time.) White is in full season! How you pair white on white is up to you. Are you feeling Dawn Richard’s full length gown or do you prefer Eva’s short take on this white hot mini dress? Swizz Beats gives you a ventilated look on top with a splash of color on the bottom, while Jermaine Dupri serves southern country club meets red carpet swag. Check out these few takes on whites for the ladies & fellas in attendance of last night’s BET Awards & sound off below, on who owned the white haute look best.
The guys left the white tees at home, and still managed not to shy away from whites this season…
Blues: A few standout bursts of blue made their way onto the red carpet, from BET’s ‘The Game’ Actor Hosea Chanchez and DivasandDorks.com’s Christen Rochon chose bright blues for their red carpet appearances.
Patterns: Who says patterns aren’t for red carpets? Here are two unique takes on patterns by Model Selita Ebanks and R&B singer Elle Varner…
Here are a few looks from the red carpet that we weren’t quite feeling…
