The BET Awards has been at the intersection of Black excellence, entertainment, and our unapologetic culture. Throughout the night, we celebrate what makes us uniquely us, our contributions to entertainment, and how we continue to set trends and influence society.

There is no better way to see culture, trendsetting, and excellence than in the looks worn on the BET Awards red carpet. Celebrities have worn everything from African garb and streetwear to modern-day aesthetics, futuristic looks, and high-end designers.

In 2022, “Material Gworl” Saucy Santana stopped photographers wearing a green tailored blazer dress and feathered, exaggerated matching boots. Issa Rae wore a bold and bright Balmain suit dress in 2017 that was tasteful yet fashion-forward. And Tracee Ellis Ross wore a body-hugging python dress that had everyone talking and looking in 2016.
