BET Awards Red Carpet Photos: Karrueche Tran, Zendaya & More
106 & Park co-hosts Shad Moss (aka Bow Wow) and Keshia Chanté hosted the BET red carpet pre-show, and looked fab while doing so. Bow Wow was dashing in a long-sleeved Oxford, bow tie and vest, and Keshia sparkled in separates in a gold sequin crop top with a matching slitted skirt.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta drama magnet Kenya Moore looked stunning in a cleavage-baring, floor-length, blood orange Victoria Beckham creation, and Zendaya — fresh from the news that she’s been ousted from the Aaliyah biopic — looked super cool in a red carpet-ready track jacket, snapback, and long blue skirt with a high slit. She’s perfect.
Karrueche Tran looked gorgeous hosting the backstage red carpet in a sleeveless minidress with braided rope detail, and actress Keke Palmer had one of the more risqué looks of the night, also in a minidress, but with cut-outs which nearly showed the world her business! She totally put Kendall Jenner on the MMVA carpet to shame.
BET Awards Red Carpet Photos: Adrienne Bailon, Ashanti & More
’90s kids rejoice — 35-year-old Tamera Mowry looked amaze in a zippered navy blue dress with leather side panels. Love it. And we can’t forget Ashanti, who looked killer in a Michael Costello gown with, surprise, major cleave (theme of the evening) and lace panels.
Can’t forget about the boys — Pharrell Williams wore a crazy hat, as is his wont, and Adrienne grilled him on the carpet about his age-defying appearance. Seriously, he is 41 years old — is he drinking the blood of innocents? Meanwhile, newcomer August Alsina looked super dapper in a cornflower blue suit (trust us, it worked) — he’s had beef with Keshia Chante before; we wonder if there was any awkwardness on the carpet?
Oh, and T.I. looked as handsome as ever, and positively legendary in a turquoise plaid shirt with a sweater tied around his shoulders. Remember when he threatened to kill Azealia Banks?! Well, we all contain multitudes, we suppose.
So, HollywoodLifers, who had your favorite red carpet look on the BET Awards red carpet? Let us know!
