Did you catch the 2012 BET Awards last night? The night was full of surprises, entertainment and heartfelt moments. As always, we have to do a recap of the fashion from the night. As far as the ladies, it seemed that yellow and white was a very popular color. Let's take a look at the star-studded style from the awards:
Perhaps one of the most discussed topics involved the appearances of Jay-Z, Beyonce & Kanye West who sat in front row all night and had a few special moments onstage. Kanye even brought his girlfriend Kim Kardashian with him. Beyonce brought her sister Solange (who celebrated a birthday recently).
Beyonce stood out in a one shoulder yellow Stephane Rolland gown with a thigh-high slit and Givenchy Cone Heel Sandals.
Letoya Luckett and Wendy Raquel Robinson also wore yellow gowns. Wendy had on a BCBG MaxAzria cutout maxi dress (on sale for $209). Get similar yellow dresses below for Beyonce, Letoya and Wendy's looks:
Jay-Z suited up in gray, while Kanye West, who opened the show, wore all white and his hot-selling Air Yeezy II sneakers.
Kim Kardashian wore off-white to coordinate with Kanye. Her dress featured a zip detail and open back.
Eva Marcille also wore a white longsleeve dress. Get similar looks for Eva and Kim K below:
LaLa Anthony and Melanie Fiona went against the traditional dress and wore jumpsuits. LaLa shimmered in a Lois London jumpsuit and Melanie wore a black jumpsuit with a body chain. Get Melanie's look:
Trey Songz didn't get the memo to dress up this year for the awards, but he mostly just came to enjoy the show this time around.
Chris Brown performed and won at the awards. Not too sure about the scruffy beard look.
Usher also performed in a very basic look - his vocals were on point though.
Nicki Minaj performed and won an award (Best Female Rapper - big surprise). She wore her usual form-fitting spandex.
Taraji P Henson wore a light blue beaded gown with strappy gold heels. Get a similar look:
Singer Tamia wore a black Pleated Oscar De La Renta gown.
Selita Ebanks wore an intricate beaded dress with sheer bottom half. Elle Varner wore an interesting abstract look.
Monica (with husband Shannon Brown) wore a detailed blazer with sequin pants. Kerry Washington wore a bustier top with black skirt.
Brandy, who (along with Monica, Chaka Khan and Cissy Houston) performed a great tribute for Whitney Houston, presented with Lauren London. Brandy wore s shirt-dress and Lauren wore a white jumpsuit. Lauren has just been added to the cast of The Game.
Newly wed Meagan Good wore a white BCBG MAXAZRIA Mara Open Back Gown ($348). Get it below:
Some of the guys got a little creative:
Bobby V wore a gray look and Miguel stood out (in a not so great way) in red.
The young boys of Mindless Behavior coordinated in all-black.
Willow Smith and brother Jaden Smith were their usual unique and eclectic selves.
Jeezy was one of the few rappers who got a little serious - in a navy blue look. Big Sean, on the other hand, forgot his shirt. He was a winner on the show though.
Lola Monroe wore a peach one sleeve gown.
The guys of TGT (Tank, Ginuwine & Tyrese) wore matching off-white blazers.
These are just some of the looks from the night. Overall, I (Whit W) would say the guys need to step it up. Who were your favorites?
